Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #90 "Dark Scorponok"
This. This right here, Funpub. Good.


We then give our thoughts on the long awaited toy debut of Devcon. This bounty hunter from the 80s is finally immortalized in plastic, so tune in to find out what the cast thinks of this character finally getting his day in the sun.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #90 "Dark Scorponok"
Don't actually put it in the sun.


Our focus then shifts over to the latest Transformers comics, and the end of Dark Cybertron, as we give our thoughts on the arc as a whole.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #90 "Dark Scorponok"
Yes?


We also look ahead to the upcoming continuations of Robots in Disguise and More Than Meets the Eye. Are we ready for Earth and Autobot Megatron, or are we really just pining for Windblade?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #90 "Dark Scorponok"
Pretty much, yeah.


After that it's time again for more toys, namely Masterpiece toys! We discuss the recently released Soundblaster and Ratbat set, then look into the future at more images of Wheeljack and the shadow of Ultra Magnus

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #90 "Dark Scorponok"
Ratbat has a large accessory included.


Toy talk then wraps up with a brief discussion of upcoming Age of Extinction toys, which are hitting shelves even now in some parts of the world!

While you listen to that, be sure to check out the first site galleries of Age of Extinction toys featuring Voyager class Grimlock and Evasion Mode Optimus Prime!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #90 "Dark Scorponok"
Get hype, there's a lot more of this to come!


Your listener questions come next, featuring a foot in a mouth and extremely polite questions.

We then wrap up with some Bragging Rights. What lost-wave Cyberverse stuff did we overspend on this week?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #90 "Dark Scorponok"
No one on the show managed to spend that little on this guy :(

Transformers: Age of Extinction - Michael Bay Gives Further Details on Lockdown

As we've seen yesterday, Entertainment Weekly has had a chat with Michael Bay, getting some interesting information about the upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction movie being the first of a new trilogy (not a reboot - a new installment of three films). What we didn't mention is the fact that Bay also talked more about the still relatively enigmatic character of Lockdown and his ship. Read on below for the details, or head here for the full article!

It’s actually a Transformer who is neither Autobot or Decepticon, a bounty hunter named Lockdown, whose alternate form is a Lamborghini Aventador.

“Lockdown is an interesting character. He travels the galaxy, he works for somebody else. And he’s here for one person, one alien, and then he’s out of here,” Bay says. “So he doesn’t really want to take sides. The cause and balance of the galaxy is kind of messed up when different species play with different species. And that opens up a whole other gigantic world for Transformers.”

[...]

“Lockdown’s ship has a lot of meaning that can go into other movies. There’s a lot of backstory about that ship that’s not laid out here,” he says. “You’re going to see a few things where you’re like ‘What is that? And what is that?’ And you’re going to see a couple shots like, ‘Wait a minute, who are they?’ But we don’t answer those questions.”

Director Michael Bay, star Mark Wahlberg and co-star Jack Raynor took a moment to speak with Entertainment Weekly to discuss the film itself, what's new, what's changed/changing, and the article included a new image of Grimlock in action in the film.

This information was brought to us courtesy of the Transformers Live Action Movie Blog, and you can read the full article here: http://transformerslive.blogspot.com.tr ... .html#more

We've included some snippets below:

Bay: "It's kind of like a new Transformers. We had three, the first trilogy, and this is going to be the next. ...It's the first of a new trilogy. I'm not necessarily sure that I'm doing [the others], but that's what it's meant for."


Bay: "{Shia LaBeouf]'s a good guy, but three movies, the same guy, it's time. You know what I'm saying? It's always good to freshen it up and change the story."


Wahlberg: "[The government] basically want to wipe out all Transformers, all the Autobots. Optimus has lost all faith in humankind, and I'm trying to convince him there is still good in the world and we need to work together."


Reynor: "The first day I'm acting opposite a giant robot that's not there so that was something that took me out of my comfort zone. Probably the most outrageous thing we did was run through an incredible explosion. You can see it in the trailer. Everything around us blew up. Absolutely terrifying. But you don't really think of the terror until afterward. It's one of those things where you just run and all of your basic instincts as a human kick in. You get out on the other side of it and you feel like a different person, really."


Also of note, some specs on Grimlock, which we've also included below:

"150 feet long from the tail to the nostrils, 63.5 feet tall from the ground to the top of his horns, and weigh 850 tons."


And finally, the new Grimlock image:

Last week, we reported on a rumor that there were reshoots scheduled in LA, for AoE.

Today, we have confirmation: The reshoots are indeed happening and involve Mark Wahlberg and Optimus Prime. (vehicle mode, of course)

We've included a snippet of the article posted on the blog:

JustJared has posted a few images that show Mark Wahlberg and the Optimus Prime truck filming in Los Angeles on April 9. The use of the modern truck combined with Wahlberg's intact clothes and no wounds suggests that whatever is being filmed is for a sequence shot for scenes early in the movie and set in the United States.

Welcome to the latest edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host Counterpunch, who promises never to take corporate sponsored selfies while hosting the show. He's joined by regular cast Jon 3.0, Scotty P, and Seibertron to bring you all the latest in reaction and opinions.

Episode 89 "Degeneration One" is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes within 24 to 48 hours of this news post.

The "original" run of Transformers comics comes to its end as Regeneration One #100 hit newsstands and comic shops last week. Listen in as yours truly completely fails to succinctly summarize this seized up slop of a story, as we lament missed opportunity and tell you how much we really, really didn't like this arc.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #89 "Degeneration One"
If this image confuses you, don't worry, it means you're still sane.


Our comics news isn't all doom, gloom, and sadness. Previews are out of the upcoming Windblade Mini-Series and we speculate on the art and story of the book. Plus, our staff on the other side of the ocean has been busy working hard, so be sure to check out Va'als interview with Windblade artist Sarah Stone while you listen for more insight into the creation of this upcoming book!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #89 "Degeneration One"


After the comic talk, we transition into toys by speculating if the presence of Galvatron in June's solicits portends a new toy in the works. Do you want one? Of course you do. So do we.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #89 "Degeneration One"
Some damn fine arrows there

Statues come next in the discussion. Wait, what? Yeah, we take a bit to talk about the super high-end Action MasterMovie Prime and Ultimetal Megatron. Guess who wants to buy these on the show? Basically no one, but the team is accepting review copies for science.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #89 "Degeneration One"
He'll take your wallet's face


More information is available on Masterpiece 21 Bumblebee during this episode, so reaction and speculation ahoy! We even get a chance to break some news on him during the show, of course, you know it by now - he includes Spike to make this the "OH SH--!" Masterpiece set you've always wanted.

Extra note - the MP Ultra Magnus silhouette appeared right after we recorded, so tune in to Episode 91 for discussion on the MP UM resin sample that will probably be revealed right after we record Episode 90.

Your Moon Base 2 crew, ready to blow up the base if there's trouble


We then turn to our old friend with benefits who we just can't ever get serious with, Botcon, and check out their latest reveal, Ferak. We also discuss the goings on with this year's convention, craziness with Joecon and potential ripple effects with Botcon, competition on the convention circuit, and lament the total lack of buzz in the community for this upcoming show.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #89 "Degeneration One"
Yay?


Your listener questions come next, where we actually say some stuff about third parties.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #89 "Degeneration One"
Me? I am amped up for this guy


We then wrap up with some Bragging Rights, in which Ryan overspends on new releases, Mike forgets he bought something, and Scotty gets one step closer to never completing his Micron collection.
