Fellow Seibertronians, in the wake of the release of Combiner Wars Episode 4 just yesterday; Machinima's Youtube Channel has put out a promotional Top Ten Combiner Wars characters video, as can be viewed below.



Most notable about this is that due to not actually having ten characters yet to make a full top ten list out of, the list includes Devastator and Victorion; hence giving us never-before-seen clips of future episodes, including Victorion landing on a structure and Devastator facing off against Megatron. Take a look and tell us what you think!

Seibertronians, another one of tonight's TF5 stories is a small round up of all the photos from the official TF5 Instagram having to do with the military! It seems the cast has been training hard with the Navy Seals! Not only that, but they've been filming at the Luke Airforce base in Arizona! Does this potentially mean the return of Starscream? Or does it predict the appearance of the seekers!? Why is all the cast training with the seals? Just in preparations for the roles, or are they all involved in the military in the film? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!

Seibertronians, are you excited? The next episode of the Machinima Combiner Wars series is up, and it's good. Like, properly good. But it's still not without it's faults. Let's break it down:

We open with a dusty Colosseum-style arena. We see what is obviously the Constructicons fighting a mysterious figure, which is revealed to be Megatron himself. He beats them all quickly, and demands another challenger.
Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread
Our First Look at Megatron

Prime arrives, saying he's not here to fight, along with Windblade, who wonders why they came all the way out to a desolate planet for Megatron.
Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread
Windblade Watches from the Bleachers

Her City-speaker ability is again mentioned, this time by Megatron, driving that point home. Megs also mentioned how he's a big fan of her work (the killing part, that is). He rushes Prime, and Optimus has to engage the former Decepticon leader, with some of the usual mixed-in dialogue about how Prime "is nothing without the war", so on and so forth. It's actually very intriguing, as it points out interesting parts of Prime not previously divulged. This is one of my favorite parts of the series so far.
Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread
Just Like the Old Days

Prime has a flashback mid-conversation to the Black-and-white scene we saw in some of the Trailers for the series, when Megatron tells Prime to pull the trigger, and end it. Megs then catches him off-guard with a massive blow. Windblade comes in to try and save him, but Optimus is already back up and fighting.
Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread
Float Like A Fireflight, sting like a Bumblebee

The group talks about the Enigma of Combination for a bit, and Megatron learns that the Council is in possession of it.

Then comes one of the strangest and most out of place scenes in the entire series so far.

Windblade rather randomly and unprovoked walks up and sucker-punches Megatron to the ground. She tells him "Enough." (even though Megatron had already stopped fighting for a good few minutes, and he was making no motions to start again) and that Prime's "telling the truth", (even though Megatron hadn't shown any sign of doubt in what Optimus was saying. Heck, he didn't even have time to before he was suddenly beat to the ground.) She then proceeds to deliver almost the exact same line that Prime had just said, not only once but twice, one after another. And the times she says it sound so similar in tone that it almost seems like they accidentally put two takes of the same line in. Not only does she say it, but she says it in front of the constructicons! She literally puts the entirety of Cybertron singlehandedly in danger by saying basically straight to a combiner the one secret combiners shouldn't know! The Constructicons of course transmit this new info to probably all other combiners right away. This scene simply doesn't make sense. It's actually confusing. It's kind of a train wreck, and drags the whole episode down.

Megatron decides to be a part of the team, and the exit the arena. The old Decepticon leader decides to make fun of Prime's old catch phrase, and gives the order to Transform and roll out. The delivery (and Windblade's reaction to it) seem very out of place, especially after that last scene. It would have been better if it was delivered if Megatron had said "I've waited years to say this: Transform and roll out!" or something of the like.
Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread
And There They go, off into the Sunset. Headed for Cybertron


So some final thoughts. This is a fairly good episode, but the main problem was the pacing. It's been a problem through the series I haven't touched on yet, but in this episode it's absolutely unavoidable. It rears its ugly head with every change of Pace, feeling, tension, or drama.

Voice acting is good in this one. I'm getting used to Windblade, Prime's good, and Megatron's actor gives a great performance, though I wouldn't peg it as Megatron. Speaking of Megs, one thing of note is that this iteration of the character lacks his arm cannon, even though the designs of the characters seem to be heavily based on G1.

The Animation is especially great in this one. It's surprisingly smooth and fluid and looks really really good. Again, there's the mouth movement issues, but I feel we're going to have to move pass those.

One point that I feel hasn't been touched upon enough is the fact that this is the first time it's referenced or shown that a combiner is actually multiple bots. It seems strange, because up until now it's been implied combiners are one, not many. This really hasn't been explained, and I'd like to know the rules.

So, you've read my opinion, make your own by watching it on Go90, and then share in the comments. Is there anything I missed? Tell us!

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. We're back with another episode featuring your host ScottyP along along with RodimusConvoy13, and, like a blast so far out of the past you'd think it's three years ago, we have Counterpunch, TigerTrack, and Razorclaw0000 back together again!

Buckle up and settle in, it's going to be a fun ride.

Episode #153 "Last Knights of Cybertron" is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on iTunes and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #153 "Last Knights of Cybertron"

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #153 "Last Knights of Cybertron"

Moving on from movies we move to comics. With the long awaited return of Razorclaw, he carries us away with tales of stacks of comics and couches. He's finally caught up on the IDW era of Transformers comics, so find out his thoughts plus a few of those from the rest of the crew. Also: Seibertron comes to grips with a long held gripe.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #153 "Last Knights of Cybertron"
I grew as a character. Then I regressed.

After that it's on to the toys. There's a few of us with Titans Return Fortress Maximus. Does he live up to expectations? Has anyone found the best city mode? Find out this and more, along with a very short discussion of the different versions available.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #153 "Last Knights of Cybertron"

The Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast returns with the sister show, the Mainframes Podcast, as the third episode dives right in to the recently concluded More Than Meets The Eye story arc "Dying of the Light". Join us on a deep journey into Transformers comics with Scotty P, Mr. Starscream, and Dr. Va'al returning to latch on to all the details of MTMTE 55 and the arc as a whole.

Episode #152 "The Hollow Men" is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on iTunes and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

Be aware that this episode is entirely about IDW Transformers comics and will completely spoil many storylines from several books, so listening after catching up with the most recent material is recommended if you wish to avoid spoilers.

As always, we start at the start, looking at what the significance of the re-emergence of the Galactic Council might mean for events in this book and beyond. There might even be some realizations about where the General has been seen in the past!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #152 "The Hollow Men"
Still not the droids tentacles you're looking for.


The twists, turns, and revelations found throughout the latest issue of MTMTE will be tough for many to forget, and were especially unpredictable. We take a look at some of the more controversial reveals, and get a lesson in where we might want to look for character elements in the future.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #152 "The Hollow Men"
Inspiration from the past. No really though.


Of course, this story also wouldn't be the same without Prowl. Wait, Prowl!? How does he keep coming up every episode of this show?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #152 "The Hollow Men"
What he must do to every script draft where he doesn't matter even a little.


There's only so much we can say about this one without loading up this news post with spoilers about the plot, but rest assured we cover all the details we can think of. Might there have been a few that we weren't fans of?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #152 "The Hollow Men"
"Towards peace? Helex, I've read this a hundred thousand times."


While Scotty might not be able to get his thoughts organized while on the air, blogger Thistlebot (spoilers behind this link!) put together a great article about some of the thematic elements, especially surrounding edits and what they convey. Read the article around the point Mr. P starts rambling, then keep on with the show. (No really, do that, it's kind of embarrassing but I didn't edit it out.)

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #152 "The Hollow Men"
Sometimes there's just no talking like this guy.


Wondering what's up with the title of this episode? Maybe not, but if you are, then sit back and enjoy the good Dr. Va'al connecting the themes of Issue 55 and "Dying of the Light" on the whole to T.S. Eliot's The Hollow Men. Fun fact: this news post was almost nothing but that poem.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #152 "The Hollow Men"
A penny for the old guy.


Connections to "Remain In Light" start to come into focus as we wrap up the show. The speculation and theories really fire up by the end, with both the hollow planet that frames this story in focus along with somewhere we might have seen other uses of this mold before. And no, we're not talking about Combiner Wars toys this time.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #152 "The Hollow Men"
Still more coherent than Continuum.


We hope you enjoyed this latest episode of Twincast / Podcast spin-off Mainframes, and stay tuned for future episodes as the ongoing IDW Transformers saga continues to unfold! We'll see you in the discussion thread for this episode which you can join in on by replying to this very news post.

Seibertronians, it's Tuesday. That means that Machinima has released the next episode of their Combiner Wars series. It also means that it's review time! So sit back, relax, grab a mug of Hot Energon, and let old Bronzey tell you a story.

We open with Optimus Prime this time(bit of a change of pace there), and he's standing in an old hangar with Windblade. The hangar appears to be on an Asteroid or moon, as it's overlooking the entire planet of Cybertron. Windblade and Optimus are standing off. Windblade reaches for her sword, and Optimus takes her sniper rifle and breaks it.

Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread
Our first good look at Optimus

A minor thing here, I wish a louder sound effect would have been given to the gun breaking. As it sits now, it sound less like it's breaking and more like it's supposed to fold in half or transform. (Ala Masterpiece Optimus Prime's gun) The first time I watched this episode, I didn't realize it was the sniper rifle from last episode he was holding, and I thought he was turning it in to some kind of sword to fight Windblade.

Anyway, we pick up pretty much where we left off last episode. Windblade takes a few swipes at Prime, and the former Autobot leader dodges all of them, making me wonder how she took down a Combiner no problem.

Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread
Optimus avoids Windblade's attacks

Windblade and Prime share some dialogue about how she tried to kill Starscream, how Windblade feels like the universe would be better off if all Autobots, Decepticons, and Combiners ceased to function. This line especially strikes me as odd. She suddenly hates everyone, and wants to commit mass genocide, but in the same breath she literally says she doesn't want the war to continue. Prime says he obviously won't stand by and let her. Windblade then asks him how many 'bots he's killed in the war, and he says anything he did in the war was not done out of spite and was not unprovoked.

While we're on dialogue here, let's look at voice acting. Windblade is still a little stiff, but you can tell the voice actor's getting more comfortable in the role and the character she wants to play. We finally hear OP speak, and he's done wonderfully by our very own Jon3.0 (or Jon Bailey as he's know in the "Real World"). And, I mean this genuinely, he is bar none the best Voice actor in the entire series so far. This is because he's had years of experience not only voicing transformers, but voicing Prime. It's unfair to expect the same result from voice actors who aren't comfortable in their new metal skin.

Again, there's problems with the animation, it's waaay too blocky and completely off-base with the words being spoken, plus there's a lot of close-up mouth shots in this one, so it's near impossible to ignore. I have a feeling this isn't going to change, so we'll have to get used to it.

Windblade then uses a special, what I'm calling a, "Turbine Attack" on Optimus, who pulls out his G1 orange Energon axe. It's cool to see the axe return in this series, and it's a nice tie-in to the older fiction.

Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread
The Axe is back, baby!

After a few more minutes of fighting, Windblade pleads with Optimus to help her because the combiners are getting out of control. I wish the series would actually show us this "Devastation" she's talking about, because save for the initial Computron v. Menasor fight, we've seen nothing about the combiners being "out of control". And even that fight was still between an Autobot and a Decepticon, so it's not to out of the norm for us. I wish she would have some flashback to a combiner tearing through the buildings of Cybertron, killing civilians. Something to give her more of a motive. (More specifically an Autobot combiner, that would really be a stark realization for the audience that they really are out of control.)

Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread
Optimus Prime and Windblade battle it out in front of an impressive backdrop

Windblade tells Prime about the council's possession of the Enigma of Combination. Prime didn't know this, and Windblade now has a chance to talk him into joining her in destroying it. Optimus realizes the danger the Enigma poses to Cybertron, but is concerned it can't be destroyed. He considers "the amount of fire-power it would take", and then looks up to the sky, saying that there's only one who can help them now. The episode ends.

This is interesting, because my first thought was Megatron, since he's somewhere in exile, too, but in terms of fire power, Megs doesn't have much more than Optimus. Let's think bigger. So...Devastator? Superion? I can't imagine a combiner helping to destroy a sacred Combiner artifact, although we have been told some are still loyal to the concil...

My theory is: It's been mentioned all-throughout this series that Windblade is a City-Speaker. (Heck, it's even mentioned in this episode), and Optimus is concerned about a lack of firepower, it leads me to believe that either Metroplex or Fort Max is set to make an appearance. I could be completely off-base, but this is what it sounds like to me.

Transformers News: Re: Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars Animated Series Discussion Thread

So, in conclusion, Episode 3 is still better than episode 1, but I think 2 still takes it for best episode so far. This was a bit more action-focused like 1, but it had some exposition as well. Unfortunately, most of the exposition is all re-hashed things we've heard before. "End the war" "You're a killer, too" "Combiners must be stopped" "We all have reasons to continue the war" "The enigma threatens the people of Cybertron" It's pretty much the same lines each episode. So again, better than the first, not as good as the second.

Haven't seen the episode yet? You can find it on Go90!

Thanks for tuning in, I'll see you next week when we take a look at Episode 4! So keep it right here on Seibertron.com, your best resource for the latest and greatest Transformers news on the net.
