Live, from New York, it's a Twincast Podcast Saturday Night! Maybe not quite live or on a Saturday, but it's still our recordings from New York City as yours truly, episode host Scotty P sat down with Seibertron and Diablien/Collecticon/Paul (of RIPT fame and an eternal Friend of Seibertron.com) to discuss the new toys and goings on from the toy industry's largest annual trade show.

Oh, and there's this matter of an interview with the Global Brand Marketing Director for Transformers, Hasbro's Jerry Jivoin!

Episode #111 "New York Toy Fair 2015" 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 hope you'll listen to the entire show, but if you'd like to skip our personal musings and get right to the interview with Mr. Jivoin, you may do so by going to 1:05:48 in the audio file.

We first tackle the big guy himself, Devastator! Now that we've seen this hugely anticipated, hugely sized toy in the flesh, are we more or less impressed? Are the individual bots something living up to expectations? We'll break down everything you ever wanted to know based on our observations, along with a bunch of facts you probably don't care about in the first part of the show.

A certain shade of green


Section something-point-something of the Autobot Code dictates that our next point of discussion is Generations Leader Class Ultra Magnus, popping right out of the pages of the IDW comic series and into our hearts. Listen in as we dissect what we saw of this latest entry into the impressive Generations series Leader Class lineup.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #111 "New York Toy Fair 2015"
Duly Appointed, indeed


There were yet more cool Generations reveals such as Defensor, Cyclonus, and Legends Class figures. The customization/create-a-character aspect of Combiner Wars comes full circle with these releases. Tune in to hear our thoughts, as well as our condolences to GI Joe fans.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #111 "New York Toy Fair 2015"
Totally not Onslaught even a little.


Seibertron.com is very proud to present the next segment of the show, an approximately 20 minute interview with Mr. Jerry Jivoin! You'll need to listen in to hear what he has to say about everything from Combiner Wars, more female characters, decisions on paint decos for reissue toys, the west coast dock strikes, whether these Combiners are being made in response to a certain other toy market, and even more!

Our sincere thanks to both Hasbro and Hunter PR for the opportunity to interview Mr. Jivoin on a very busy day in a very busy environment, and on basically zero notice at that! It was a blast to conduct and we hope our listeners and the fan community as a whole enjoy the information shared.

We didn't forget about the new toys from Robots in Disguise. Jazz and Sideswipe Warriors, plus lots of new Minicons will grace store shelves this fall. Find out our thoughts about the upcoming products coming out to support the cartoon show that's coming soon.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #111 "New York Toy Fair 2015"
Seriously huge.


Since we're all just big kids here, we take a little bit of the show to chat about the upcoming releases for Rescue Bots. Join us as we jump on the boat and don't transform. Wait, what?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #111 "New York Toy Fair 2015"
Broadside's little cousin


Loyal Subjects vinyls are about to hit their third wave and Toy Fair gave us the opportunity to get a very clear look at them for the first time. Why is Scotty so mad about the case breakdown? You'll find out, plus you'll get to hear the counterpoint which makes for a fun, lively discussion of these Action Vinyls. You can even preorder a case of this upcoming wave from our buddies at RIPT Apparel.

He can't see anything at all, but can he see why kids love Cinnamon Toast Crunch?


Toy Fair brought along far more than we could possibly cover without having a four hour show, so catch the rest as we break down our thoughts on licensed products hitting stores in the next year. Protect your home, keep your spot in a book, and try not to stab yourself with metal if you check out any of this stuff once it's available.

Small in stature, but not in character.


We finish up with an insanely elitist edition of Bragging Rights. The pictures can speak for themselves!

Ask the Twincast - from our own news staff member william-james88:
Of course, original stickers in good quality will always be most desirable but what is worth more between:
A g1 toy with reprolabel stickers or a g1 toy with faded/incomplete/scrappy original stickers.
Does applying reprolabels to a G1 transformer make it lose value?

Fresh and energized before an inevitable turkey-coma, the Twincast / Podcast is back to present our latest episode. Join host Scotty P as he sits down with the mysterious Punch, as well as our second potential new friend, SW's Silverhammer.

Episode #106 "McCarthyism" 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 out by taking a look at the potentially not as easy to get MP Exhaust and his battle against the forces of Philip Morris and the US Government. Will the Decepticons succeed in driving the cast to chain smoke for the rest of the episode? Or will the Truth campaign prevail? Neither of these things are addressed as we pick apart this tale of when the worlds of legal agreements and import Japanese Masterpiece Transformers collide.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Smoooooooke.


We then take a trip back into the Movieverse and take a look at the awfully tempting paint job of Takara Tomy's AD-31 Armor Knight Optimus Prime. Is this a case of taking advantage of lower costs, or a premium piece that the cast will be avoiding?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
You will buy me, or I will kill you.


Generations takes center stage next when we have a chat about the initial Combiner Wars wave now that there are official images from Hasbro of these upcoming toys. Find out who's happy, who's soured, and who just takes things as they are.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Crotch elbows got nothin' on chest shoulders.


In our special topic of sorts for the episode, we take a look at some older toys that have worked their way back into our hearts over the years. What toys have you re-discovered a love for lately? Maybe it's something you didn't appreciate before, or maybe something completely ignored years and years ago. Either way, let us know what kind of Transformers stuff you've either re-discovered or newly discovered recently by replying to this post. It doesn't have to be all about toys either!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Sailing back into your heart, and the world of the living.


We then move on to comics talk (starts at 55:21, skip to 1:22:56 or so to avoid spoilers), first by exploring the return of Shane McCarthy to the Transformers world in this month's Drift: Empire of Stone #1. Does Drift return to bring the fandom its favorite thing? We don't think so, plus, yours truly gets all hypocritical with the artwork given how Regeneration One went, so tune in for that fun and more.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Drift's a dandy guy, doing dandy things, in space.


Then we move on to the latest chapter in the complex space opera landscape of More Than Meets the Eye #35. Has the cast had enough of this time travel business? And what's Brainstorm been up to? Full on spoiler warning continues for this section, so be warned!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Get the getaway car, Counterpunch, he's figured out the show!


On a somber and/or cynical note, we chat about the layoffs at Jagex, the company responsible for the Transformers Universe MMO game that never quite got into the air. Listen in to our compelling discussion as no one is surprised by this turn of events.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
A visual representation of hopes for this project.


We then finish off with some Bragging Rights. Prepare to be dazzled by our tens of collective additions!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #106 McCarthyism
Lots of Maketoys in this one.


That wraps things up for another episode! We sincerely hope you enjoy this one.

You see the title. You know the show. You can talk Transformers all day. You hear the Twincast crew talking about stuff where you've got a take, and you've just got to get it out. Is that you?

If so, the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast may be in need of you! No one is permanently leaving the show, but as your ears may have been able to tell, some of our longtime regulars have grown-up, responsible adult type stuff to do that's taken away from the time they can spend podcasting. Due to this, we're looking to bring on one new regular cast member. Potentially, we'll add more than one, but that's only if we're just blown away by more than one applicant.

Here are the qualifications for a potential cast member:

  1. An absolute love for the Transformers brand - Not just the toys, not just the comics, not just the shows, not just the movies, not just - well, you get the picture. Even if something isn't your favorite, you'll need to keep up with the latest and greatest and be ready to discuss it. Our show is known, as least partly, for the depth of knowledge of the cast, and new crew should keep up that standard.
  2. Drive and desire to make the show better every episode - This is purely volunteer work and every episode will come with some responsibility. No one on the show gets to show up, record, and forget about it. You must be driven to actively contribute and help make this the best Transformers podcast on the internet.
  3. An outgoing personality - Not much explanation required here. Shy personalities need not apply. Have to have the ability to keep up a long conversation and be able to treat occasional guests like they're old friends.
  4. Ability to have fun, opinionated arguments while never losing your cool - We don't all agree on everything, and that's awesome! Anyone coming on to the show needs to be able to get into a good, intelligent debate, and keep it professional. If you get angry and irrational during arguments over opinions on Transformers things, we're not the show for you.
  5. Team first mentality - We're not looking for the next celebrity. We're looking for a piece of a team that can contribute to the whole of that team. If you're looking at this and your first thought is that it'd be a great way to plug your Youtube channel or personal blog, then you're probably not what we're looking for.


Here are the absolute, non-subjective, technical requirements:

  1. Must be an active member of the Seibertron.com community - As a cast member on the Twincast, you become part of the Seibertron.com staff. You must be an active member of our community, and you must be willing to continue to post on the forums regularly after joining. Staff members of other Transformers fansites are not eligible to be a regular Twincast / Podcast cast member, however current Seibertron.com staff are eligible to audition. Regular contributors to other podcasts will be considered on a case by case basis - if you're doing sports talk somewhere, whatever; if you're doing Transformers talk elsewhere, we need to know this.
  2. Weeknight availability - Must be available on most Thursday nights, but also Tuesdays or Wednesdays as needed, with the occasional other night thrown in as needed around holidays. Recordings are around 8:30 PM Eastern time. This one is completely non-negotiable, as availability issues are why we're having to look for new voices!
  3. A good internet connection - You probably need at least a 20 megabit down connection to participate if you live within the continental US. If you live outside of the US, you may need a much stronger network, otherwise the entire production may have difficulty remaining stable and at a good quality.
  4. A Skype account - We won't always use Skype into the future, but for the time being, this is the medium used for call recording.
  5. Decent microphone or headset - As long as it sounds good, it works, but your built in laptop mic, for instance, probably isn't going to cut it. Also, need some decent headphones. Speakers cause echo and may not be used during a recording.


Here's how to apply if you feel you meet all the requirements:

You'll need to record two clips, and send them in to us in mp3 format. One clip should be thirty seconds long, and the other should be one minute long. No other formats will be accepted and no clips where the talking exceeds the time limit will be accepted (if your file starts with three seconds of silence and ends with a couple and it's 1:05, no big deal, but if the time from your first word to the last is over the limit, your entry is disqualified). Yes, these requirements are a test, and you need to pass. Please do not spend money to do this, there's plenty of free software.

For the thirty second clip, give your thoughts on one of the following three topics:

  1. Comics Topic: How do you feel about Megatron's turn to the Autobots, and did you find it handled well stylistically?
  2. Toys Topic: Talk about your favorite toy from Transformers: Age of Extinction's toyline.
  3. General Topic: What is your favorite era (could be a whole era like "Unicron Trilogy" or single period such as "Beast Wars Season 2") of Transformers?

For the one minute clip, answer one of the following questions. Your choice from here should address a different area of the hobby than the thirty second clip. In other words, if you picked a toy topic for the short clip, do not pick a toy topic here, and vice versa:

  1. Comics Topic: What is your favorite era/book/mini-series of Transformers comics, and why?
  2. Toys Topic: Do you think Hasbro's "Combiner Wars" theme for 2015 will help combat potential sales lost to third party companies?
  3. General Topic: What keeps you interested in the Transformers?

Each clip should be recorded as if the host has prompted you to answer it on the show. Once you have them ready, send me a Private Message here on the forums to let me know that you're interested. This will allow us to verify that you're an active community member here. Once we've done that, you'll be sent an email address to send the actual clips to, and that's it!

Deadline:

Deadline for entries is 6 PM Eastern Time on November 9th, 2014 and we will not accept any more submissions after that time.

Judging:

All interested candidates will be contacted by November 12th at the very latest. At that time you'll either be moving on to the next phase of consideration described below, or we'll let you know that we won't be moving forward in having you on the show.

We'll pick our favorite 2-4 clips (more if there are more really good submissions, less if there aren't), and then those folks will, one by one, get to appear on an episode for a tryout. This tryout will be the ultimate criteria used in final judging. Depending on the number of folks we want to audition, there may be one person auditioning on an episode, or we may have someone audition for an hour, then we'll have them leave and bring someone else in for other segments. Just depends on what we get and what feels like the right thing to do when we cross that bridge.

There's no set criteria for judging the folks that audition, it will come down to a vote by the seven current members of the Twincast crew. Chemistry is everything, you may be the next big thing in Transformers podcasting, but if you don't have chemistry with us, you just don't have chemistry with us. Seibertron (Ryan Y.) has final approval and veto authority, since, you know, he owns the site! Of course, even though the final decision is in our hands, listener feedback in the podcast thread for the episode(s) where audition(s) occur might sway our opinions.

Good luck, and we look forward to hearing from everyone that applies!


Disclaimer: An offer to join the Twincast team stemming from this event does not guarantee any permanent arrangement. If circumstances occur that lead to any requirements not being met in the future, performance (real or perceived) after audition period drops below an unacceptable standard, or if responsibilities beyond recording your voice on the show are not completed, invitations to appear on future episodes may be revoked.
