We made it.

After four years and 99 episodes, we've finally arrived at episode #100. We're thrilled to bring you this very special edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. Join your host Counterpunch as he brings along special pals John Barber from IDW Publishing, freelance author Jim Sorenson, and our comics editor Va'al for unique segments you're sure to want to catch. Although, first you'll have to listen to your regular cast Jon 3.0, Razorclaw0000, yours truly Scotty P, and Seibertron, who pops in for a few as well.

Episode #100 "#100 in a Four-Episode Limited Series" 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.

(3:26)
After a brief intro, we dig in to the storied history of the Twincast / Podcast! And yes, you get the actual history this time, not a made up story.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
There is still no Generations version of us


(14:45)
Ever want to go behind the scenes of the show? You may second guess that desire after hearing us chat about our setups and where we record from. Here's a hint: it's not in a professional studio.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
We heard that "Honest Trailers" is done from here too



(18:15)
Bragging Rights pop up out of nowhere! What kind of haul has Razorclaw0000 ready to Never Forgive? You can listen, but I'll just spoil it with an image here anyways.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
You can call me Senpai


(21:35)
We do sneak in some actual news in this episode! New Masterpieces are on the way including Exhaust and Star Saber. Listen in and these exciting new toys make their way into our hearts and... lungs? Did we chain smoke our way through this one? You'll have to tune in to find out.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
Come to where the flavor is.


(28:00)
From Counterpunches to debates to drunk convention appearances, there have been a lot of amazing Twincast moments over the years. The cast recollects their favorite times, so listen in to find out what we've enjoyed over the years, and be sure to share your favorite Twincast moments in the discussion thread below!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
I was at a bar too, in Raleigh, sad that I wasn't in Orlando


(43:30)
Believe it or not (and I'm sure you probably do believe it), the show that you get to listen to doesn't always have a smooth road it travels down to get there. Can you imagine us messing up? We certainly can, and we take a look back at some of our "oops" moments over the years. Learn more than you ever wanted to about the how and why behind the "how" and "why?" moments you've heard.

At least Hasbro makes transformation bloopers too. Wait, why won't that image work? Damn.


(53:53)
It's been a long journey, so we make sure to take a different look back in time. Which member of the cast has been on the site the longest? What awesome rockin' topics were all the rage back on August 12, 2010? Click the link to look back, and listen to the latest show to hear us realize that we're getting old. Oh, and don't tell, but this is technically our 101st episode :-$

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
This was once the new hotness


And now I toss it across the pond to our resident King of Comics, Va'al, who stayed up extra late to help us welcome some extra special guests! Take it away Va'al!

(1:05:26)
I'm taking it, ScottyP, takin' it to places where we've never been before: the realm of IDW, and its senior editor John Barber! And John doesn't only work with transforming robots, he has full tapestries of serial killings comics, where GI Joe shows up more than once too.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"


We talked about a number of things with Barber, and you can hear them all if you follow the time mark above, but here's a rundown for you:

Ever wondered how long he's been a part of the franchise? He was there when the comics started. He was there with the cartoons and even with the toys - which still pile-up on his desk regularly, it seems - all long before he became a writer (with the movie stuff) and editor at IDW Publishing.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
Not Barber's desk


Since then, he's been doin' it with style on Robots in Disguise, which has hit a new peak recently with issue #32, and we talked about how he sees Prowl, Thundercracker and what the near future will hold for the cast, especially Galvatron, the Headmasters and a possible Game of Thrones echo.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
Did it work?


With that in mind, we moved even further into the future, and what Combiner Wars might bring us, between six issues of 'the series formerly known as RID' and the returning Windblade series. And Razorclaw000 thinks we get a major scoop about Megastator.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
So close


I also manage to sneak in a question about the highly divisive, but otherwise extremely popular, collaboration with Tom Scioli on Transformers vs G.I. Joe, and just how much fun they have working on it.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
FUN


And to round off, we went back in RID's history to two of the best received issues pre-Dark Cybertron, to look at Soundwave's new spin, and how the cassettes got their voices in the comics.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
Insult-bot: Origins?


If you haven't been reading Robots in Disguise this far, make sure to head to ComiXology or your local comics shop to pick up the Phase Two, Volume 1, any of the trades, or single monthly issues!

And thanks again to John Barber for joining us for this special occasion.


(2:25:54)
We weren't finished! The man of a thousand voices jON3.0 brought along a special guest, the curator/archivist/bounty hunter with a hat - Jim Sorenson! We talked hats, conventions, the Complete Allspark Almanac, past work that he's done for IDW like the Art of Prime and how he juggles it all.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
Jim's robotic avatar, by Kris Carter


Then we looked at what's yet to come, specifically another co-authored book with Bill Forster, a celebration of 30 years of Transformers toys and their packaging art: Transformers Legacy. This will truly be a big, chunky piece of history.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
A BIG book


And as we than Jim for also joining us to celebrate 100 episodes, here is where I launch the laptop back across the ocean, hoping ScottyP will get it to finish writing. Ready, Scott?

-----

Got it! Thanks for the write-up Va'al, and thanks again to everyone that's listened over the years, plus everyone that's dropped into the show! We're only going to get bigger and better from here, so stay tuned over the next four years on the road to episode 200 for fun Transformers talk and more, much more, than meets the ear.

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!

First off, we'd like to say congratulations to Counterpunch and his wife on the purchase of a new house!

Age of Extinction toys finally hit the shelves and were gobbled up by hungry fans. First up we discuss some of our in-hand thoughts on the new Constructbots Dino Riders.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #93 "Rear Ended"

We even show some love to the new Power Attacker figures.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #93 "Rear Ended"

Okay, now it's time to dive into some real toys!

The AOE Deluxe Class Wave 1 figures are now in stores. Crosshairs, Bumblebee, Scorn, and Slug are pretty cool figures but as you'll hear, a few of us haven't even been able to get our hands on them. (thanks Comic Con!)

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #93 "Rear Ended"

Scorn and Slug are the first Deluxe Class dinobots we've seen. You'll have to tune in to hear our thoughts on these guys.

We take a break from toy talk to answer one of your listener questions!

Images of Deluxe Class Lockdown have surfaced and of course, we are full of opinions on this guy. Tune in to hear what we think.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #93 "Rear Ended"

More images of Snarl and Slog have appeared online and it seems like everyone will be getting their hands on these guys.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #93 "Rear Ended"
Who can say no to a Mad Max brontosaur?!


We also stumbled upon some images of Drift and his new alt mode. We chat about this interesting figure and a possible future use as another character...

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #93 "Rear Ended"

And then this happened. Oh Hasbro, what in the world is this? *sigh* no words...no words at all.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #93 "Rear Ended"

Up next we'll discuss the new images of the new crazy colored MP-10 cross overs, EVA Masterpiece Prime and BAPE Masterpiece prime.

The Kreo Character Encyclopedia as finally shipping and ScottyP was lucky enough to have it in hand to discuss his thoughts.

We then dive into another one of your listener questions to answer something I think we've all asked ourselves...what's up with store distributions?

More movie trailers and TV spots are being released and we all agree that they are doing an excellent job building up the excitement for AOE.

Assume the position and get ready to be hazed, bro, it's time for another crucial episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast/Podcast. Chapter President Counterpunch initiates the other brothers Jon 3.0, Scotty P, and Seibertron, as we break super secret probation just in time for rush.

Episode 92 "Extinction Season" is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes within 24 to 48 hours of when this news post is visible.

Botcon registration has gone live - did the cast get signed up smoothly or did it all bomb? Tune in to find out.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #92 "Extinction Season"
Never coming back to the East Coast.


Age of Extinction toys hit the internet today and will start (officially) hitting shelves later this week, but they've already hit the world famous Seibertron galleries! We talk about the Leader Class and Deluxe Class toys right off the bat. Tune in to hear some in-hand thoughts as we help you get pumped up for movie season!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #92 "Extinction Season"
Check him on the shelf carefully, that chrome can be rough.


We then turn our attention to the store exclusives for AOE, featuring Walmart and their Beast Wars resurrection of sorts.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #92 "Extinction Season"
Something expected, and something totally out of nowhere. Awesome!


We don't leave out the lazy Minicon repackages at Toys R Us or the chromed out stylings from Target either. Just how much chrome is too much? I don't think we talk about that, but we definitely give our thoughts on the potential of these redecos.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #92 "Extinction Season"
Your new obligatory Prime redeco - chrome silver.


Even the Construct-bots toys get some time in our spotlight of words. How long does it take for condemnation to occur?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #92 "Extinction Season"
Differenty? Yeah, a little.


After a brief interlude about the last waves of Beast Hunters, we consider another group of delayed toys in the most recent Generations waves. Is the sky falling? Is Generations dead? Do we care? The answers: No, no, and of course.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #92 "Extinction Season"
Now 100% more fat


We circle back around to Botcon and consider their final reveal, Fire Guts Ginrai. This discussion is so exciting it causes dead air, technical difficulties, and a flash flood warning. Tune in as we help justify the choices made for this toy - or not.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #92 "Extinction Season"
But what does the Scouter say about his power level?


We wrap up almost 90 minutes of toy talk with a look at Masterpiece 22 Ultra Magnus. Does this toy look like it will fulfill our dreams? Or will it never be fit to carry our Datsuns?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #92 "Extinction Season"
Fulfiller of dreams, all the way


Free comic book day unleashed a rather interesting looking GI Joe/Transformers crossover book. Listen in as Jon 3.0 unleashes the fury on this project. We continue our talk of comics by discussing parts of More Than Meets The Eye 28 and Robots in Disguise 28.

**SPOILER ALERT** - We do discuss some of the upcoming MTMTE 29 that is to be released this week. The spoilers are very minor, but they are there. Skip ahead to 1:51:16 in the file when the TF/GI Joe crossover discussion ends to avoid this part of the comic discussion if desired.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #92 "Extinction Season"
Comic talk is back!


We take a listener question, and then wrap up with some bragging rights.
