Episode #121 "SDCC 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.

San Diego Comic Con, the place where everyone wants to be, is taking place this week (July 9-12) and we've got the latest scoop on all the big surprising and those not so surprising reveals in the Transformers world BUT we decided to throw you a curve ball tonight and start off with a little discussion of non-TF SDCC news that we are each looking forward to.

Up next we'll dive into the world of transformers...

Oh, what do we have here, do my eyes deceive me? Nope, those 90's neon colors are headed our way again in the form of G2 Superion and Menasor and we couldn't be more excited!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #121 "SDCC 2015"

We've also been shown this awesome spreadsheet of repeated mold use in the Combiner Wars line, just in case you were curious. :D

We fall back into some G2 chat when out of the blue, who do we have here? Live from San Diego, its Seibertron! He was able to take some time out of his busy schedule to join us to chat about everything from his first hand experiences to the overall vibe of comic con. You do not want to miss this.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #121 "SDCC 2015"

While it may not come as a surprise to some, it looks like we've finally gotten an update that Toys R Us may actually be getting Masterpiece Starscream.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #121 "SDCC 2015"

Up next, we discuss our thoughts on the awesome looking game from Activision Transformers: Devastation plus, our very own Seibertron was lucky enough to get a first hand walk through at SDCC.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #121 "SDCC 2015"

The votes have been tallied and the fan built female combiner, Victorion, has finally been revealed. We'll discuss our first thoughts on her as well as the overall fan reaction.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #121 "SDCC 2015"

At this years Botcon, we were lucky enough to get our hands on some G2 figures that never saw the light of day, General Optimus and Sgt. Hound. On top of Nacelle from the club, the twincast deviates a little to discuss what other unreleased figures we would love to see.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #121 "SDCC 2015"

SDCC also gave us images of the upcoming Combiner Wars Scattershot and Betatron but the question still remains, will we actually see Computron? Guess we will have to wait and see.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #121 "SDCC 2015"

With the popularity of the Combiner Wars line so far, what does this mean for the possibility of the other combiners making an appearance?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #121 "SDCC 2015"

Combiner Wars Devastator, the set we have all be clamoring to get our hands on is finally popping up in stores. Some of the twincast were lucky enough to have him in hand so you'll have to tune in to hear our thoughts on this new box set.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #121 "SDCC 2015"

There were a few things that were surprisingly absent at SDCC this year, most importantly, Titan Wars. The images were (leaked?) at Botcon this year on the Hasbro banner but with no official word, will we ever see these figures come to life? Well, just when we thought all hope was lost, an image of Titan Wars Blaster has appeared...

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #121 "SDCC 2015"

In other news, the twincast discusses the upcoming Combiner Wars animated series coming to us from Machinima.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #121 "SDCC 2015"

Also, there was some exciting news to come out of the IDW panel at SDCC. Lets just say we will be seeing new comics galor in the coming year!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #121 "SDCC 2015"

Of course, we finish up this episode with an excellent round of bragging rights. What has the Twincast picked up since last time? You'll have to tune in to find out...but here's a hint.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #121 "SDCC 2015"

Well, that wraps things up for another episode! We really hope you enjoyed listening.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host ScottyP, along with Counterpunch, Megatronus, and Seibertron himself! Listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #120 "Cons" 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 begin with a very special segment, dear listeners: the Twincast chats with Colin Douglas, organizer of the upcoming TFCon in Toronto, July 17-19. Sit back and enjoy while we find out what really goes into planning the largest unofficial Transformers convention in the world.


Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #120 "Cons"
Solid Logo.


Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to chat with us, Colin. We had a great time talking about Toronto, water slides, Peter Cullen, the genesis of TFCon Charlotte, convention exclusives, and more!

We get into some additional Con discussion, and the crew quickly settles in on SDCC exclusive Devastator. Seibertron is on-hand mid-photo shoot - the finished SDCC Devastator gallery can be found here. What does the Twincast think of this exclusive, and how does it stack up to the Generations and Unite Warriors releases? We move on to the Combiner Hunters 3-pack, Kre-O Class of '85, and whoa... things are getting expensive.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #120 "Cons"
Prepare… for chrome-termination.


We seamlessly move into Botcon and this year's exclusive figures. The collection of oddities and the Diaclone-homage-surprise-attack caught a couple Twincasters off-guard. Some are bummed, and some wish they could have been at the convention. While you listen to our joys, woes, and a spirited conversation on these Diaclone-inspired figures' factions, check out Seibertron's mini-gallery of the Botcon 2015 exclusives, right here.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #120 "Cons"
Misfits.


We skillfully segue to the Windblade #4, MTMTE #42, and TF #42 comics. We're on the verge of a very cool Velocitron arc, some MTMTE set up, and great story work in The Transformers (formerly RID). What do we think of the long-game they're playing, and the worlds the writers are building? Listen in to hear the crew's thoughts about the comics' larger direction, and the greatness at the end of the tunnel.
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #120 "Cons"
Finally, Knock-Out takes center stage.


We digress, and talk through the hunt for Transformer Prime Megatron, Transformers Subscription Service Nacelle assembly problems, some special dealers at Botcon, and more. You like it when we riff, right?
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #120 "Cons"
Upside-down rear wing tips. Grrr.


We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording - or even since two recordings ago?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #118 "Countdown to Botcon 2015"


Thank you Pete for taking the time out of your busy schedule to sit down and chat with us!

As we transition now to some toy talk, we'll discuss our thoughts on a new video that has surfaced finally showing how one of the biggest sets of the year will combine. That set you ask is none other than Combiner Wars Devastator!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #118 "Countdown to Botcon 2015"


Images have surfaced of some pretty wild decos of our favorite fembots, Arcee, Windblade, and Chromia! Now revealed as an SDCC exclusive, will we be leavin' on a jet plane to add these ladies to our collections? Guess you'll have to tune in to find out.
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #118 "Countdown to Botcon 2015"


Up next, images of the newest member of the Platinum Edition family, Trypticon have been revealed! Will the crew be picking up this big lug or are some of us just not ready to pull the trigger yet.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #118 "Countdown to Botcon 2015"
You can't resist it...It's electric!

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your prodigal host Counterpunch, micron master ScottyP, pinball wizard xRotorstormx, and combiner wars junkie Megatronus - listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #117 "Block Town" 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've got toys on the brain tonight folks, and we get started with a few of this year's Club exclusive figures. A couple Twincasters have the first Subscription Service 3.0 figure, Carzap, a few others this year's 'free' Lio Convoy, and yet another the Club Store exclusive Nova Prime. Are these worth your hard earned dollar? While we assess paints apps, heads, and what we're looking forward to, check out Seibertron's galleries of Nova Prime, here.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Gotta watch your back in Block Town.


Time for some main-line talk, starting with Combiner Wars Leader Thundercracker. In-hand images have been piling up, and this figure is in stock at Hasbro Toy Shop and site-sponsor BBTS. Is the Twincast excited for a comic-accurate figure, or resigned to an out-of-scale one? We discuss what could have been, and how we come to terms with what is - it's all quite zen, actually.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Starscream: not far behind.


Seibertron's got brand spanking new galleries of Legions Class Cliffjumper, Skywarp, and Ultra Magnus up and running, and some in our ranks want to know what all the Ultra Magnus fuss is about. Listen in as the rest of the crew discusses these neat little finds - probably coming to a Dollar Store or Big Lots near you!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Goodbye Minimus Ambus… Hello Ultra Magnus!


We move onto something BIG - San Diego Comic Con's exclusive (oh, that word) Titan Devastator. Some of the Twincast crew is entranced by dat box and others by dat purple chrome, but is dat enough to make the crew pull the trigger? Are we still hung up on our original assessments of this set, or are we coming around? It's a tough call, so tune in.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Prepare… for extermination.


The Twincast crew gets down to some serious business: Unite Warriors Defensor with deluxe Groove. The Twincast discusses the intrigue of these figures and their exclusive molds and decos. With wave 3 of Combiner Wars appearing at retail, will the crew be picking up Unite Warriors Defensor? What's it mean to be exclusive anyway? Well, you'll just have to listen to find out.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Groooooovy


The time is ripe… for a LISTENER QUESTION! News staff member williamjames88's thoughtful query initiates a lively discussion about buying at retail vs online. In an age of increased convenience and internet dominance, what motivates some of the crew to venture out into the wild of brick and mortar retail? Conversely, what keeps some crew-members married to eCommerce? There are no wrong answers, but some revealing insights into Twincast members' nostalgia, collecting philosophy, and life commitments. Listen in to hear what it's all about.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Old toys, new channels.


We get on to some unlikely art-talk with the release of five very cool Fembot concepts by IDW artist Alex Milne. The popularity of female Transformers amongst the fandom, and the demand for more toys of such characters, has been an encouraging trend. Will we see these characters take flight in toy or comic form? As always, the Twincast crew has some opinions on that.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Let me stand next 'toy' your fire…


We touched on SDCC before, so you know we got to talk Botcon! The convention is just a month away, and we've caught wind of some rumored Waspinator-based army builders. Which of these taste-the-rainbow decos make sense, and which don't? Does the Twincast crew even care if these figures fit in, or are we simply excited for some Waspinator-related fun?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Prepare… for buzz-termination. See what I did there?


We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording - or even since two recordings ago?

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your no-longer-on-the-market host ScottyP, site owner and photographer extraordinaire Seibertron, Not-Optimus RodimusConvoy13, and the late (to the show) Jon3.0.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"
Jon 3.0 was saving Drift during our comics discussion


Episode #116 "Character Piece" 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.

On this episode we start out by catching up on some comic talk. The not-quite latest issue of More Than Meets The Eye kicks things off, as we take a rather long time to catch up on the dastardly(?) deeds of the DJD.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"
Not sure if the audio gives a reminder of who the Best Character is, so here's one.


After that, we catch up on the goings on with the rest of the crew in the fallout of Elegant Chaos. The feels run strong while we chat about the emotional "Ratchet" issue. Will we ever successfully say "goodbye" to this topic during the episode?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"
Off the page, but into your heart


We then move on to Combiner Wars Parts two and three, found (respectively) in the pages of Transformers #40 and Windblade #2. The ongoing war is so compelling, it may get glossed over with only the quickest of discussions - who will save us from the lack of discourse for these super fun issues?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"
My money's on Lightbright


We then move onto Cartoons and discuss Robots In Disguise Episodes 6 & 7. Is the cast enjoying the show so far, or are we truly still in the "too early to tell" phase of the show?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"
Buy her now kids! Oh wait, you can't. We're so good at cross channel marketing.


The Robots in Disguise chat rolls on for a little while longer, when we take a look at some potential toy repaint color schemes.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"
Obligatory


The last toy in the Botcon 2015 boxed set has been revealed as the "Double Pretender" Oilmaster! "The Bounty Hunter" comes to us as a resurrection of a canceled late-G1 concept. Split opinions reign as we discuss whether or not this made some dreams come true.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"
Trukk AND Monkey!


With Botcon coming up soon, we then briefly turn our attention to the boxed set on the whole. What do you think of the set? Will we see you at the convention?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"
Maybe Axl was singing about Mach Kick all along


Next up, we'll answer a very fun question from Seibertronian lordME.gatron, who asks:

lordME.gatron wrote:Hey there guys I'm a long time listener, first time caller;

I started collecting a little over 5 years ago, I managed to buy more generations toys than g1. Would it be wise to continue collecting both g1 and generations or stick with either line. I like both lines but its becoming too pricy, any advice? :CON:


Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #116 "Character Piece"
Choices, choices...


After that, it's time to wrap up with some quick Bragging Rights. Listen to us all live vicariously through one another's collective eclectic hauls!

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your upstanding host RodimusConvoy13, version two-point-oh Jon3.0, the very metal xRotorstormx, and dark horse Megatronus, who may or may not have ghost written this very post!

Episode #115 "Nenemis Prime" 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.

Today's a toy-centric Twincast, folks, and the crew is ready to tackle the rush of Transformers reveals coming your way. First we discuss the latest Botcon 2015 Cybertron's Most Wanted box set reveals: Battletrap, Shattered Glass Stepper, and... DOTM Megatron? The Twincast crew discusses Duocons, mirror universes, and the divisive first release of the Arms Microns Breakdown mold in the US, which is captured in a stunning gallery by our very own Seibertron. Which of these figures are we most excited about? Well, you'll just have to listen to find out.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #115 Nenemis Prime
It's over, Prime.


But wait, our friends at FunPub aren't done yet. We've once again entered the magical world of crossovers, with a few intriguing new entries on the G.I. Joe side of the ledger: Joe CON exclusive Old Snake and BAT (2 of 'em!) from the PRID deluxe Soundwave mold, and Transformers Collectors Club Marissa Faireborn with "Afterbreaker." Sit back as we discuss the merits of these rather slick crossovers, and the amazing galleries Seibertron photographed for your viewing pleasure.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #115 Nenemis Prime
It's a mug only a mother could love.


Our final exclusive of the evening is dark, evil, and has an oversized meat cleaver as a weapon. Oh, and did I mention he's a combiner? That's right, the Twincast discusses the eHobby exclusive Grand Scourge. Is the Twincast crew picking up this Prime wannabee, or is that gold just a wee, wee bit too much?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #115 Nenemis Prime
Ha, he said 'wee, wee'...


On to Takara, and their newlineup of figures coming off the assembly line: Transformers Adventure. What's the crew picking up in this assortment of original molds and redecos? What are we leaving behind? What other crazy things can we expect ? We've got our opinions, and folks, you're gonna hear them!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #115 Nenemis Prime
Excellent execution. Read that as you will.


Takara's Unite Warriors Menasor has been revealed, and these Stunticons' are considerably different from their Hasbro counterparts. In a word: G1 accurate decos. Salivating yet? Well, it's not all good news - the Twincast discusses the tradeoffs, so tune in!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #115 Nenemis Prime
But... but... where's Offroad?


Who's feeling the rage? Prototype images of MP-26 Road Rage (a retool of the upcoming MP-25 Tracks) have hit the interwebs, and the first female Masterpiece figure features a retooled head, curved thighs, and perhaps more. Bonus: in-package images of Hasbro's Masterpiece Bluestreak have been revealed... but we think you can guess which figure we're more excited about.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #115 Nenemis Prime
Oo-la-la!


Next up: Combiner Wars. Join us for a freewheeling discussion on the Protectobots, Cyclonus, and a few other Combiner Wars figures that have shown up in the Phillipines. How are we liking the looks of these wave 3 figures, and how soon can we expect them, given some of us haven't even found wave 2 yet?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #115 Nenemis Prime
Just think of the repaint potential!


Finally, on to some non-toy talk - Robots in Disguise has progressed to episodes 3 & 4, and those crewmembers brave enough to watch have some encouragingthings to say about this latest animated adventure!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #115 Nenemis Prime
He's still got the touch!


Our penultimate topic for this broadcast: A listener question! Seibertron.com member Nemesis Maximo asks the crew about cleaning their dusty figures. How such an innocuous became a source for hilarity is beyond us...

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #115 Nenemis Prime


We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording?

This episode features your prodigal host Counterpunch, master of this universe Seibertron, the always exceptional ScottyP, the very metal xRotorstormx, and dark horse Megatronus, who may or may not have ghost written this very post!

Episode #114 "Brainmasters" 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.

First, we take a look at what Transformers are all about for some folks: toys! And boy, do we have a lot to talk about. Most of the Twincast has MP-24 Star Saber in hand, is this latest entry worthy of the title "Masterpiece"? More importantly, will the Twincast crew be successful in Counterpunch-ing xRotorstormx into purchasing this figure on air? Listen and find out.

Which is G1... and which is the Masterpiece?


But wait, there's more - despite Super Serious Tobacco Attorney's (or Harvey Birdman's?) best efforts, MP-25 Exhaust has arrived. The highly anticipated redeco of Masterpiece Wheeljack has been uncertain in its release and difficult to obtain, but the Twincast has you covered. Sit back as we discuss the merits of this figure, and the amazingly hazy galleries Seibertron photographed for your viewing pleasure.

Then, we have a very special treat for our listeners... a short topic! The Twincast very, very briefly gives their thoughts on the recently announced, and oh so very Diaclone, MP-18B Bluestreak.
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #114 "Brainmasters"
Body of Prowl. Heart of Streak.


Next up: Combiner Wars. Images of the new Quickslinger and Breakneck (AKA Slingshot and Wildrider) are here. What do we think of these figures? Are they a welcome addition to the Generations fold, or does the Twincast like Alpha Bravo and Offroad just a wee bit better?
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #114 "Brainmasters"
Options.


Botcon 2015 in Chicago is coming up fast, and this is already proving to be an interesting year. We have the first Cybertron's Most Wanted Box Set reveal: ittttt's Packrat! Will the Twincast crew be picking this homage up? What does the crew think about the rabid speculation on the Box Set's remaining characters?
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #114 "Brainmasters"
Once a Rattrap redeco, always a Rattrap redeco.


Way better images of the new, simplified Cyber Series sub-line are out and about. What do we think of these 7” and 11" figures? Also, maybe they're already available in South America? Where's our Brazilian correspondent? Listen to our rueful ramblings to learn more.
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #114 "Brainmasters"
My truck's bigger than yours.


Images of Takara Legends LG-13 Megatron have finally arrived, and the differences between this and Hasbro's version are both minor and controversial. We're full of opinions and nitpicks when it comes to the Decepticon leader. Which Twincast crew-members plan to import the big guy, and who already has one (or two)?
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #114 "Brainmasters"
To G1, or not to G1? That, is the question.


Movies - lots and lots of movies. Or, at least, that's what we've been told to expect. Paramount is looking to expand the Transformers movieverse, Marvel-style. What does the crew make of this news? And, more importantly, what would the Twincast like to see down the line?
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #114 "Brainmasters"
HINT: this. Maybe.


Our penultimate topic for this broadcast: A listener question! Seibertron.com member CombaticonsCombine? asks about Bruticus in our "Ask The Twincast" thread, and we reply on air. The Twincast is pretty unanimous on this one.
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #114 "Brainmasters"
Just a matter of time.


Remember, if you want to hear your questions answered by us "professionals", leave it in the Ask the Twincast thread. We take all of them, we just don't take them all seriously, so if it makes the cut, it may get read and answered on the show.

We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording? Well, besides Star Saber and Exhaust, that is.
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #114 "Brainmasters"
So... how about that backstory?

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.

Episode #113 "Signal to Noise" 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.

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.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
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.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
Heeeeeeeeeere’s Offroad!


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.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
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:

  1. What schemes has Roberts unleashed in his travels back to pre-war Cybertronian society?
  2. Time travel paradox?

    Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
    Paradox schmaradox… at least until a certain briefcase is involved.

  3. Remain in the Light was an awesome arc and powerful story, made more powerful by… prose?
  4. Roberts shows us his love for music, and for the growing More Than Meets the Eye community.
  5. Which (T-Rex) characters should we expect, which are gold, and which are big ole black holes?
  6. The Decepticon Justice Division finally returns – oh, the humanity, err *ahem* morality.

    Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
    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.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
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.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
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).

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #113 "Signal to Noise"
Sticker shock?


We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording?
