Get ready to storm the Bastille, tear down that wall, and throw your tea in a harbor because the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast is back to unite and get revolutionary on your audio receptors. Join host Scotty P, Jon "Optimus Prime for Real" 3.0, eternal voice of reason and/or comedy Counterpunch, and welcome back Megatronus while he watches the meter as they discuss Combiners, Titans, and a Revolution.

Episode #156 "Gestalt Theory" 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.

With the Combiner Wars cartoon wrapped up, we (except Jon 3.0 who sits out this segment) finally discuss our thoughts about the show. Did this more "mature" attempt at a Transformers program resonate with the crew? No, not really. Did we think it was good storytelling and a nice way to bring these characters out in a different form of media? No, still nothing there either. Listen in to exactly why we weren't impressed, as we try to take a measured approach in our critique.

Metroplex has fun ways of telling you to get off his lawn.


The negative vibes disappear as soon as they arrive, as we take a look at the fantastic Till All Are One #4 released last week from IDW Publishing. We discuss the Combaticons and the depth of character illustrated within the book for these classic Decepticons. Additionally, the ongoing saga of Ironhide comes under inspection, as well as the longer continuity at play with Chromia's confession. As always, spoilers will be within if you haven't yet caught this issue!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #156 "Gestalt Theory"
Iron Yeager > Cade Yeager


Given that combiner team characters often carry an inherent difficulty in defining every piece as interesting and well defined, considering the amount often introduced at once, we discuss times from the past where combiner teams bucked this trend. In this special discussion for the week, we remember Aerialbots and their varied team makeup, Stunticons and there lack of it, and we learn one very prescient yet terrifying truth:

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #156 "Gestalt Theory"
Unicron is frightening.


After that, we stay on the gestalt theory as we attempt our best thoughts on how to flesh out an existing combiner team where the characterization over the years has been lacking. Shock, awe, and even some tactical espionage await. The Technobots doing technoforming? Devastator the beserker? Piranhacons in Tropic Thunder!? Anything goes as the cast tries to break out some creativity.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #156 "Gestalt Theory"
Not quite Armageddon.


Once we've had our fun here, things shift into a very different arena as we take on a special request topic from Seibertronian ctrlFrequency - Transformers: Earth Wars tips, tricks, and strategies. Megatronus and Jon 3.0 do the heavy lifting and take a look at Events, alliances, and the basics of how it all works. Tactics for "Wars", plus much more await within, and we hope players of the game enjoy this segment!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #156 "Gestalt Theory"
Canadough not required.


Things shift back to comics for a short while, as Revolution 1 has hit the stands. A second attempt at being negative and nice simultaneously hits the show, with yours truly getting on a soapbox out of pure frustration. Tune in to find out why the 'A' for effort and good build didn't lead to warm fuzzy feelings about this ongoing event comic.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #156 "Gestalt Theory"
19 covers to collect and still no sign of T-Bob


Things take another turn as we analyze an excellent Listener Question from new board member @Quint's, who asks:

My question is; Which of these 3 era's do you like most?
The one when it was all new? The one that made you feel you missed a whole lot and got you exited again? Or the current one where there are more choices for the same goal than you'd ever imagined you would have to choose from?


Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #156 "Gestalt Theory"
The thrill of discovery!


Good looks at the upcoming third wave of Titans Return deluxe class toys, as well as a hot round of rumors for future Titans Returns releases take a quick turn in the spotlight too, though some of the cast takes the time out to give feedback on current releases for the 9,000,000th time. Tune in for an audible progression of people that have kept a show going a little too late in the evening on a weeknight, as they talk about toys from the present and possible future.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #156 "Gestalt Theory"
Space Chicken dreams? They're more likely than you think.


We finish up the show by winding down with some Bragging Rights. What will Megatronus' long layoff yielded? Is Counterpunch still buying Battle Beasts? And what "Adventure" has Scotty P been up to this time?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #156 "Gestalt Theory"

Welcome to the latest edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. We're back with another exciting episode that features your host Scotty P along with Jon 3.0, Tigertrack, and xRotorstormx. Sit down, tune in and get excited as we discuss all the latest news and reveals.

Episode #155 "Pillarboxed" 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.

The 30th Anniversary edition of The Transformers: The Movie is set to be released in mere days on September 13th but our own Scotty P was lucky enough to *somehow* get it before any of us ("Editor's" Note: Thanks, Shout Factory!) We'll talk through the extra features included with this new version, and look back on previous versions of the movie from years gone by.

By the way, if you want to experience all the details for yourself without a breakdown beforehand, you'll want to skip to about the eighteen minute mark in the audio once you hear the movie talk crank up. If you do that, just be sure to come back after this next Tuesday and catch our thoughts.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #155 "Pillarboxed"


Hot on the heels of Masterpiece Inferno, comes the one and only Grapple. The cast grapples with balancing want of a cool toy with indifference of a character. Also, speculation about other upcoming Masterpiece figures is found within. Is Hoist an inevitability?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #155 "Pillarboxed"


On top of his reveal, we also got wind of the next two possible Masterpiece figures, starting with, at last, a new Megatron? Put another way, Megatron, is that you!? Our show has a hint.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #155 "Pillarboxed"


Masterpiece also looks to be taking a turn down the stone cold highway to hell as the sound of broken glass appears to be ushering in a new era: Shattered Glass Masterpiece, starting with none other than Optimus Prime. You can take a look back at the history of Shattered Glass with our SG Optimus Prime 2.0 gallery. We also talk about SG Megatron, but maybe not in the way you'd expect! Why? Well, the picture below from Seibertronian Mindmaster will help as a visual aid for the speculation heard within this episode.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #155 "Pillarboxed"


The topic struggles to come to the forefront for a bit, but we finally get around to talking about popular toy line and show topic, Titans Return.

No, seriously, we just can't seem to get to it for awhile. Even this comes up to distract us along the way!

There's an entire playlist of these terrible/amazing G2 toy ads on the site's YouTube channel, so check it out for maximum face-palming/jammin'!

:ahem: Anyhow, we finally do reach our Titanmaster promised land, and not a moment too soon. Wave 2 of the Generations Titans Return toys have started to hit the shelves and with most of the crew having them in hand, we turn all negative Nancy on a few but we end up balancing those out with some high praise.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #155 "Pillarboxed"


An interesting list recently appeared of some rumored future Titans Return toys that may be coming down the pike. You'll have to tune in to find out what we think is real, what we think is wishful thinking, and what names might actually show up on packaging. Shattered dreams within, or just a lowering of expectations? Perhaps neither?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #155 "Pillarboxed"


Robots in Disguise looks to be doing its best Transformers Victory Multiforce impression with Combiner Force. The recent app update leads to a conversation so in depth, you'll probably be finished reading this sentence in the time it takes for it to all play out.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #155 "Pillarboxed"


Up next, our comic gurus discuss the latest comic issues of TF: Titans Return, MTMTE, and Till All Are One. A quick look at the latest stories and thoughts on where we think things may go from here await. In addition, one cast member just might have been hooked by a recent preview showing more of the potential of the Combiner Wars arc brought back to the forefront.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #155 "Pillarboxed"


Up next is a great listener question from one of our news staff members, william-james88. New molds of existing characters, or repaints of existing molds into new characters - which reigns supreme?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #155 "Pillarboxed"


To wrap up this episode, we have another exciting round of bragging rights. Tune in to find out what neat stuff we got our hands on since last episode. Find out how friend of the show Flux Convoy lends a hand in this episode's bragging!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #155 "Pillarboxed"


Plus: Jon 3.0 wins bragging rights for the remainder of all time forever and ever. Seriously. Most of you know why, but if not, be sure not to miss this!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #155 "Pillarboxed"


Hope you enjoyed listening! Check back in about two weeks as we prepare for the Revolution.

Welcome to the latest edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. We're back with another exciting episode that features your host, ScottyP along with Counterpunch, Tigertracks and xRotorstormx. Sit down, stand up, get hype and enjoy as we discuss all the latest news and reveals.

Episode #154 "The Misfits" 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.

We start this episode off with a new reveal that looks as if they could be The Misfits (from Jem of course). Takara unvealed the next United Warriors box set Megatoronia and it is full of day glow goodness but, what does the crew think of this bright reveal?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #154 "The Misfits"


Up next, we decided to change things up a bit and dive right in to some listener questions which reminds us...too much is never enough. When can collections go too far, and have any of the crew had to identify that moment in their own lives?

After that, we bring the mood down a little and tug at your heartstrings with a few stories of when collecting was not all fun and games. We come out the other end looking for positives and lessons, so who knows, this podcast might just teach you something this week.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #154 "The Misfits"


The new Robots in Disguise "Clash of the Transformers" toys are starting to hit shelves and a few of us were lucky enough to get their hands on a few. We share our impressions and briefly discuss the high and low points of each character, ponder about instructions, and get completely stumped trying to identify an axe.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #154 "The Misfits"


The TFCC exclusive Skywarp has started to arrive with a very interesting package. We've also received the last 2 figures in this years TFCC Subscription Service, Impactor and (Blue) Bluestreak but with only 4 months left in 2016, will Sub Service 5 make it? The crew discusses this, plus gives their overall impression on these newest club figures. Also: unused Beast Wars Uprising concepts, and the groaning that follows.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #154 "The Misfits"

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #154 "The Misfits"


The SDCC exclusives hit Hasbro Toy Shop on August 9th, but something was different this year. There didn't seem to be a rush to get the exclusives. Why was this, and why did one podcaster go 'all-in' with this year's products anyhow?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #154 "The Misfits"


Thanks to Toys R Us Canada, we've seen a sort-of surprise sneak peak of the upcoming Titans Return Doublecross. With not much to go on, the speculation starts to run wild as we hope for better looks of upcoming toys very soon.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #154 "The Misfits"


We close out this episode with a segment you cannot possibly be prepared for. What is this crazy segment, you may wonder? Well, it involves the Battle Beasts.

And Bragging Rights.

Yep, buckle up, because it's time for the first ever, super awesome, mega extreme, ultra gear Battle Beasts Bragging Rights. Join in the fun via site sponsor Big Bad Toy Store by getting your own fire lion here.
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #154 "The Misfits"


Then real bragging rights wrap up another episode, where the IDW topics got cut for time so stay tuned in about two weeks for thoughts on some of the latest comics and perhaps just some of the earliest too. What does it mean? You'll have to come back next time to find out!

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! Seibertron also stops by shortly after the proceedings start to take us through an excellent adventure from the world of Transformers 5: The Last Knight. 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.

We start by celebrating the recent 30th anniversary of The Transformers: The Movie. What does it mean to us? When did we first see it? The cast relates some stories and memories. Seibertron also gives his delightful news that he's getting the new Blu-Ray very soon.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #153 "Last Knights of Cybertron"
Prime's death really wasn't what upset Scotty.

Continuing in the movie vein, Seibertron tells us of his adventures on the set of Transformers 5: The Last Knight! What did he see? Who did he meet? Check out his account of this awesome opportunity.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #153 "Last Knights of Cybertron"
I'm driving down I-96 as a big old Semi Truck!

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"
I'd show you my best city mode if these guys would get off of me.

CybertronCon revealed a lot of great upcoming Titans Returns toys. Hear us talk about what our favorite reveals were such as the tantalizing peek at Trypticon. Six Shot's great "submarine" mode, Hot Rod retools, triple changers and more help us finish off this summer's season of reveals.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #153 "Last Knights of Cybertron"
You don't like my Jet mode? *sniff* That hurts, man... *sniff*

We finish off this episode with bragging rights! We got a lot of fun things since the last show! What was our favorite?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #153 "Last Knights of Cybertron"
Time to send the haters back to Crybertron.


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.

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.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #151 "SDCC 2016"
Thanks as always to our amazing friends at Hasbro and the Transformers Brand Team!


The remainder of the show kicks things off with a lively discussion dissecting one of the biggest reveals of the show: triple-changing Titans Return Voyager Megatron. The cast has both high hopes for and reservations about this figure - but bigger news awaits.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #151 "SDCC 2016"
Do you see what I see? (No, it's not a Triggerhappy Optimus.)


We move right along to some exciting Legends reveals: an all-new Bumblebee (yawn) and Gnaw, the Sharkticon (yay). As we bemoan the inevitable shortage of these nifty little troop-builders in the making, one question rules all: does Gnaw have a fat head? Watch or listen to find out.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #151 "SDCC 2016"
Catch 'em all!


Titans Return Legends Lione (Sawback) and Overload (Overkill) are on the block - as are their strange and wondrous alt modes. Before the Twincast can get too deep into the weeds, a question emerges: what missed opportunities do we see with this line of Headmasters?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #151 "SDCC 2016"
Free cookie to whoever can tell me how that alt mode works.


Ever since he was leaked at Botcon, Liokaiser (video here) has been generating considerable excitement - but not everyone is pleased. Tune in to find out what's bugging the crew, and why some might be passing on this Platinum Edition set.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #151 "SDCC 2016"
The boys are back in town... minus one.


RID gets some much needed love with Super Ginrai, a showdown set with stasis pod, and... Starscream? That's right, one of the Decepticons most conniving players makes an entry into both the cartoon AND toy line. Tune in to find out which version we prefer.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #151 "SDCC 2016"
A face only a mother could love.


Viva La Revolucion! That's right, the Revolution is upon us as we discuss the latest and greatest in comics - for those looking to avoid spoilers, this section occurs from one hour and fifty one minutes to approximately two hours and sixteen minutes.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #151 "SDCC 2016"
ROM ROM ROM ROM ROM.


BREAKING NEWS: straight out of Wonderfest, we have color pictures of the highly anticipated Masterpiece Cheetor. The crew is pumped as we parlay this topic into a listener question: what does the crew think the next 5 MPs will be?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #151 "SDCC 2016"
Meeee-owwww.


We wrap up our video live show with everyone's favorite segment: bragging rights. Some of us are still waiting on Titans Return to hit shelves; others have some shiny new toys (literally) that steal the show.

Episode #149 “Titans Arrive“ 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.

Oh, and if you're looking for non-toy talk, check out Episode 150 for an entire episode devoted to Sins of the Wreckers!

With a new toyline upon us, we take stock of all the in-hand impressions we can give you on each of the toys that one or more cast members has in their possession. You can follow along as we go from toy to toy using the Titans Return toy galleries, which are being updated almost daily with comprehensive photos of all the new toys.

Prepare to hear about this guy. A lot about this guy.


After taking time for the Voyagers we chat it up about the deluxes from the first wave: Scourge, Hardhead, Skullsmasher, and Blurr. What car mode has zoomed into our hearts? Is it a boat or a spacecraft? Tune in for answers to some of this, and you may even figure out a way to make your Skullcruncher a bit more stable when standing.

Squeezecruncher, perhaps?


Bases are in this year, right? The Leader Class Powermaster Optimus Primeand wave mate Blaster prepare to host all the little bots as they build their Cybertronian cities. Is this play pattern something you like to indulge in, or are these gimmicks too obtrusive for you? Let us know what you think in the thread, and post pictures of your best base modes too!

If we actually took anyone's money for this show, we'd just use it to turn our recording areas into large replicas of this.


The Titan Masters get their due time as well, with Nightbeat, Loudmouth, and more driving their tiny tanks all around the conversation. Or is it a floating tank?

Supplemental, complementary, or is that too much math?


Just in time for this edition of the show, Fortress Maximus arrives at Seibertron HQ. Experience a live unboxing (sort of), first impressions, and even some serious armature. You know, to attach his arm. Like Metroplex, only more fortress-y.

Drive me closer!


Combiner Wars isn't totally over, and a quick time out from the Titans is in order as we look at some of that line's later releases including the recently released Unite Warriors Bruticus set. This one features new mold Blast-Off, plus some other enhanced deco editions of the Combaticons and other minor retools such as Vortex's blades. Find out if we recommend this set, or if it's just a swindle.

With apologies to Casey Kasem


There's even a bit of the Transformers Subscription Service lending a limb, and a new matrix, to this episode. Windsweeper and the Matrix of Malice have arrived in mailboxes. With a slick new deco, we have plenty to say about this latest entry from the Transformers Collectors' Club, and even convene the most pointless debate ever about which Matrix mold it uses.

MP-10 to put it in not included.


After talking still more about Titans Return, and then more about it, and then more about Galvatron again (and again), we at last move on to finish the episode out with some bragging rights.

Because you, the listeners, demanded it, the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast returns with the Mainframes podcast's second episode, focusing purely on the world of Transformers comics in an in-depth way. The team assembles early on a Sunday morning with Scotty P, Mr. Starscream, and Dr. Va'al returning to dissect, praise, explain, and speculate away about the recently completed Transformers series Sins of the Wreckers.

Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule." 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.

If you're looking for non-comics talk about the latest Transformers toys, check out Episode 149 with our lengthy, in depth coverage of Titans Return toys.

We take our time and look all the way back to the start, remembering those first pages initially seen last October. This also quickly gets in to analysis of the books tone, color palette, and layouts, all of which are a style very prevalent through each issue of the book.

That Ashcan issue was a long time ago now.


The return of Springer is an unavoidable topic, with the character being extremely pivotal to the story told in the series. We discuss the timing of his return, and the potential repercussions of it that may lie beyond. It starts out just fine, but beware, part of this absolutely calls for your tin foil hat!

A hardcover collection's prose story pays off all over again.


Of course, this story also wouldn't be the same without Prowl. Just how did he get here, and what did Rattrap have to do with it or not? Plus - pulling the trigger and the difficulty thereof.

Reasonably placed blame


Dr. Va'al drops a bomb on the speculation front as we look back at Roadbuster's flashback. Pharma, Tarantulas, Hubcap, Mortilus, and Luna 1 come together in a way that catches the other cast members off guard. What do you think of this theory and what it could mean to the IDW-verse moving forward?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule."
Maybe he'll pull out the RKO next time?


The main villain of Sins, Tarantulas, also comes front and center. Is this spider really big and bad, or just one of those two? Also, tiny. Internal. Robot. Heads.

Not the only grey one in the room?


The book's humor comes up as we work towards wrapping up any plot synopsis, and if you haven't been able to tell already, this show will completely spoil the book all the way to the end.

What those that get spoiled will do to their Twincast subscription.


A short timeout follows to reflect on the humor ever present just beyond the surface. From Verity's violent science, to Impactor's quips, to a beached whale, find out the moments that we chuckled at (whether we should have or not) and share your favorites with us!

We also take up some of your questions from the Energon Pub Forums, including one that many fans want to know about when the book occurs. You can get the answer to that one without listening as it's just below, but tune in to see if your question got answered as well!

From page 1 of Transformers #45


To close things up, we take one last look at speculation surrounding the events of the last few pages. What awaits Impactor, Springer, Verity, and the others, and did Tarantulas survive? What might Revolution have to do with it all? While many plot lines were closed up nicely, yet more questions await answers in the coming months.

I thought it was!


We hope you enjoyed this latest episode of Twincast / Podcast spin-off Mainframes, and stay tuned after More Than Meets The Eye wraps up its current arc for more analysis, speculation, and just maybe even some special guests! We'll see you in the discussion thread which you can join in on by replying to this very news post.
