Thanks to a tip from fellow Seibertron.com member kaliaticus, we report that Rovio has released a new update for the Angry Birds Transformers mobile device game,to include new structures on the map, as well as upcoming features and challenges and two new playable characters, whose identities are yet unknown. Are you still playing the nostalgia-ridden game? In either case, check out some screenshots of the updates below!
Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. This episode features your always exceptional, sometimes sober host, ScottyP, the very metal xRotorstormx, dark horse Megatronus, and the ever winsome RodimusConvoy13.
Oh, and this pretty popular author you may have heard of stops by: James Roberts! Sit back and enjoy as Va'al and Scotty P cut up, hang out, and wax philosophical with this very special guest.
Spoilers Abound! This episode contains spoilers for all of the following: Episodes 1 and 2 of the new Robots in Disguise cartoon, Transformers #39, and More Than Meets The Eye #s 1-39. This is your one and only warning.
First we change things up with some long awaited cartoon talk. The first two episodes of Robots in Disguise have premiered, and most of the Twincast crew has seen most of the episodes. Where does RID fall in the constellation of its many cancelled predecessors? Underbite ate WHAT? Listen and find out.
Bumblebee doesn’t always speak, but when he does, he’s Batman Beyond.
Something momentous is coming. Wait, no, it’s already here: Combiner Wars #1 (otherwise known as Transformers #39). Sit back as we discuss Starscream’s bodies, wide-eyed and bushy-tailed Swindle, our varied and shifting opinions of Livio Ramondelli’s art style, and more.
Then, we have a very special treat for our listeners – an interview with none other than James Roberts of More Than Meets The Eye fame.
We insisted he do the interview with the jacket on.
If you just came here for the interview, you can find it at 47:30 of the file, wherein our brave host Scotty P and devious News-Staff-slash-resident-comics-expert Va’al inherit the wind:
What schemes has Roberts unleashed in his travels back to pre-war Cybertronian society?
Time travel paradox?
Paradox schmaradox… at least until a certain briefcase is involved.
Remain in the Light was an awesome arc and powerful story, made more powerful by… prose?
Roberts shows us his love for music, and for the growing More Than Meets the Eye community.
Which (T-Rex) characters should we expect, which are gold, and which are big ole black holes?
The Decepticon Justice Division finally returns – oh, the humanity, err *ahem* morality.
Bird, Dragon, or Bird-Dragon? Why not both Zoidberg?
Our sincerest "Thank You" greetings to Mr. Roberts for lending his time to the show, and for the amazing content at that! We hope you all enjoy listening to the interview as much as we did conducting it.
After that, we return to our traditional comfort zone: upcoming Transformers toys. Images of the new, simplified Cyber Series sub-line took us all by surprise. What do we think of these 7” figures? Are they a welcome addition to the Generations fold, or more of the same? This is also the part where you learn another terrible Twincast secret: We don't know how to read good, and want to learn to do other things good too.
Just don’t take away our Generations, man.
Platinum Edition Blitzwing and Astrotrain are Awesome and/or the Worst Thing Ever. Is Platinum Blitzwing an homage to Shattered Glass or Flywheels? What’s with that orange on Astrotrain? Will the Twincast crew be picking these up? While we decide, check out Seibertron’s awesome galleries of G1 Astrotrain and Blitzwing.
Alpha Bravo, is that you?
In other Platinum Edition news, the long awaited Coneheads are being reissued. Now this is something the Twincast crew can get excited about… if the price is right. New Platinum set, same question: will the Twincast crew be picking these up? Better yet, can you spot the differences between these newbies and the originals? Check out Seibertron’s galleries of G1 Thrust, Dirge, and Ramjet to try your hand (or rather, your eye).
We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording?
Don't forget, the show only gets better if you tell us how. Drop us a review on iTunes and be sure to tell us what you love, what you hate, and what you want to hear!
Not on the show to give your take? Probably not, so don't forget to keep the discussion going on the Seibertron.com Energon Pub Forums by simply replying to this post!
Got a question for the Twincast? We take all of them, we just don't take them all seriously! Leave a question in the Ask the Twincast thread and, if it makes the cut, it may get read and answered on the show.
Fellow Seibertron.com member Starsaber468 has spotted a new update on the Transformers: Legends blog, detailing the new event for the mobile game, including some new planet-tastic artwork. Check it all out below, and feast your eyes on the cosmic brothers Primus and Unicron!
TRANSFORMERS Legends - “Battle of the Brothers” has begun!
The AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS are locked in fierce battle over an experimental space bridge designed by JETFIRE. GALVATRON, intent on using it to transport weapons of mass destruction straight into enemy territory, orders his forces to use any means to secure it.
A stray shot from someone’s weapon strikes the space bridge, causing it to overload and explode. RODIMUS, JETFIRE, and GALVATRON and their teams are blown backwards through time, to before the creation of Cybertron.
There they discover the two brothers, PRIMUS and UNICRON, locked in titanic combat. The universe trembles with each blow, until finally the both withdraw, summoning forces to their sides to aid in the battle.
GALVATRON, in his madness, decides to ally his DECEPTICONS with UNICRON, ignoring the fact that the destruction of PRIMUS will spell his end as well. Meanwhile, RODIMUS, JETFIRE and the AUTOBOTS, realizing the stakes, throw all of their strength behind the creator of the Cybertronians.
Will PRIMUS prevail over his brother, the Chaos Bringer? Or will UNICRON finish the creator and erase the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS from existence? Find out in TRANSFORMERS Legends - “Battle of the Brothers”!
UPDATE - All players in this Team Battle Episode have a chance of receiving a reward of 40 Battle Cubes from any of the bosses encountered. This is on top of the normal Boss payouts.

Inspiring the imagination of kids and adults for generations The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis celebrates 30 years of these heroic robots in TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE, opening March 7, 2015.
“Are you an AUTOBOT or a DECEPTICON?” will be asked of visitors entering this unique intergenerational exhibit through giant TRANSFORMERS masks. Inside, children and families will recognize all their favorite characters — from the evil DECEPTICON leader MEGATRON and his archrival, the wise OPTIMUS PRIME and the AUTOBOT army, to BUMBLEBEE and STARSCREAM. The exhibit will span the universe of the TRANSFORMERS brand, from Generation 1, which debuted in 1984, to the characters from Hasbro’s newest animated series TRANSFORMERS ROBOTS IN DISGUISE – giving every member of the family a chance to share favorite memories.
"TRANSFORMERS prove that ordinary things can become extraordinary with an active imagination and great engineering,” said Dr. Jeffrey H. Patchen, president and CEO, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. “Just when you thought you were looking at a cool Camaro, you realize that underneath the shell is a giant AUTOBOT with a taste for adventure named BUMBLEBEE. We want families to explore how there really is more to the world than meets the eye and as they learn that together, they will share the joy of puzzle solving and discovery.”

Fellow Seibertronian STngAR has pointed us in the direction of the Transformers: Legends mobile device game blog, as a new update rolls out! The second part of the Key to Vector Sigma episode is currently out, and you can read more about it below, as well as checking out the artwork of Aerialbot combiner Superion.
Back on Earth, the DECEPTICONS discover that the key to Vector Sigma is able to transmute whatever it touches into metal. Knowing that they have this, and the might of MENASOR, the DECEPTICONS decide that they will turn the Earth into a new Cybertron.
Teletraan 1 detects the energy of the key being used to convert parts of the area around a major northwestern city into metal, and alerts the AUTOBOTS. The AERIALBOTS join their new allies and head there, intent on stopping the DECEPTICONS from destroying the Earth’s environment with the key.
The STUNTICONS, upon seeing their hated rivals among their newly arrived enemies, charge towards them, intent on turning them into scrap. An instant later, a mighty battle erupts around them and the AERIALBOTS, leaving members of both factions out of commission.
As the fight rages on, MOTORMASTER, DEAD END, and the other STUNTICONS combine to become MENASOR. With a mighty roar, he lumbers onto the battlefield, knocking combatants flying as he storms towards the AERIALBOTS. Seeing the giant approach, they merge to form SUPERION, surprising their rival. Without a moment’s hesitation, they take MENASOR on hand-to-hand.
Can SUPERION turn the tide back against the DECEPTICONS? Or will MENASOR finish off the AUTOBOTS’ newest warriors? Find out on TRANSFORMERS Legends - “Key to Vector Sigma, Part 2”!
