Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your charismatic host RodimusConvoy13, plus Megatronus, Jon3.0, and xRotorstomx - listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #160 "Grappling with Memory" 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.

Another episode of the Twincast Podcast, another round of new product sightings. This time, it's Titans Return Titan Masters + Deluxes Wave 3, and the highly anticipated RID Bisk. So, who's not picking these up?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #160 "Grappling with Memory"
Squeeeeeaaaaallllll!!!!


Now that Thanksgiving has passed - and with it all the sales we'll likely see the week before Christmas and after the New Year - we can grapple with a dose of self-reflection. Seibertron.com staff member william-james88 asks: "What price do you guys look at when wondering if a toy is worth the price?" Oomph. That's a doozy,

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #160 "Grappling with Memory"
It's the most sales-iest time of the year.


Masterpiece Inferno is here, and, as is usually the case, the Twincast crew has some thoughts. Live thoughts. The liveliest. So live, that Jon3.0 opens his figure on air. After this live unboxing, the Twincast tackles the fandom's heretofore armchair accolades and critiques. Did I mention it was live?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #160 "Grappling with Memory"
Disco Inferno


Combiner Wars is back - or rather, ending. Takara's upcoming Baldigus appears to be the last known release of Combiner Wars molds, and as we look forward to more fabulous Titans Return figures, we conduct a post-mortem to understand how Combiner Wars marked a turning point for the brand.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #160 "Grappling with Memory"
So bald. So good.


Machinima is back with news of seasons 2 & 3 announced. Jon3.0 - the voice of Machinima's Optimus Prime - gives us an inside look at how the sausage is made, while others voice their critiques and hopes for the future of Machinima's work.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #160 "Grappling with Memory"
Write. Her. Better.


Bragging Rights is here. Last time, we geared up for a good old fashioned Black Friday smackdown. Now, it's time for the ACTUAL smackdown. Who got what this Black Friday, and who was brave enough to make more purchases after our consumer-driven culture's most shameful day?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #160 "Grappling with Memory"
Ready for the smackdown.


Ummm... who the heck is Grapple?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #160 "Grappling with Memory"
Seriously, we could use some help on this one.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host ScottyP, plus Megatronus, Counterpunch, and xRotorstomx - listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #159 “Imperfect Specks" 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.

After a moment of solemnity, we kick off episode 159 in earnest with a special Black Friday topic: what would the Twincast crew like to see on sale this Black Friday? Our answers vary - and we're sure yours do too. Please post your own Black Friday aspirations in the forum thread below, and visit Seibertron.com for roundups of all the best Black Friday deals.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #159 "Imperfect Specks"
Last year's booty.


Things then move on to Robots in Disguise - Season 3 of the popular RID cartoon has hit the airwaves. We embark on a robust discussion of the first 3 episodes, which hark back to TF:Prime in a big way. What does the podcast think of the relic hunters theme, and its recycling of older character models?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #159 "Imperfect Specks"
Camouflage is the latest fashion this season.


Time for an RID listener question from Seibertron.com member and all around great guy, Sabrblade. To paraphrase his words: any thoughts on the notion of RID season 3's old-fashioned route of "toys first, then media appearances" for the new characters instead of the more recent trend of "media first, then toys?"

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #159 "Imperfect Specks"
Just in time!


We use Sabrblade's question to segue into the recently revealed RID deluxe and legion, including Soundwave, Blurr, Twinferno, and many more. Yes, yes, we know - ScottyP was right about that new RID deluxe Starscream. Do these reveals keep the crew in anticipation, or are they a let down? There's only one way to find out.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #159 "Imperfect Specks"
ScottyP is the actual worst.


Stop! Comics time. TAAO is on the docket, and we continue to enjoy the crossover potential of this series. Between Windblade, Metrotitan, and the revelation that Micronus Prime is responsible for Micro Space (this guy is really getting around the fiction these days), there's a lot to talk about. Revolution 4 has also hit the stands, and gets a rare ultra beatdown of criticism from the Twincast team. Listen in to learn why the awful art, weak villains, and overall poor story have us ready for this force-fed, unnatural crossover of pop culture properties to just end already.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #159 "Imperfect Specks"
Great cover... best left unopened.


MP Megatron is back in the news - as more images proliferate and we learn more about this figure, the more we (or at least, predictably, Megatronus) salivate. ScottyP has an interesting theory: might the upcoming Masterpiece Megatron be a remold of MP Shockwave? Wild speculation ensues.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #159 "Imperfect Specks"
Those legs look... familiar.


After a false start earlier in the episode, we're back to MP32 Optimus Primal. Counterpunch walks us through the joys of this figure, which heightens our expectations for the upcoming Masterpiece Cheetor. Have you gotten your Primal yet? Let us know your thoughts in the thread below. "Make bananas great again."

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #159 "Imperfect Specks"
Peerless.


Bragging Rights. Pure and simple. As we gear up for a good old fashioned Black Friday smackdown, what have we gotten to sate our appetite for converting robots in the meantime?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #159 "Imperfect Specks"
Not all heroes wear capes

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host ScottyP, Megatronus, RodimusConvoy13, and xRotorstomx - listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #158 “Altered Image" 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 with the Elephant - or should I say Walther P38 - in the room. That's right, MP36 Megatron has been revealed, and the crew is pretty freaking excited. Listen in as we compare this update to its MP-5 precursor, and discuss what we find most exciting about this toy.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #158 "Altered Image"
I would have waited an eternity for this.


While we're on the topic of Masterpiece toys - what Decepticons will be getting the MP treatment next? How closely do our wants match the cold possibilities of reality? We all have our hopes and aspirations, none too realistic - heck, a new Masterpiece Optimus seems more likely.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #158 "Altered Image"
Too much to ask for?


Continuing on the Masterpiece train, we tackle part of a listener question from Skullcrunchberries. Can there ever be a perfect toy representation of a character? What are some examples we could think of, and what makes them so? This segment attempts to answer these questions and more, and don't forget that your questions could get answered too if you use the Ask The Twincast thread.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #158 "Altered Image"
Timely promo shot. Is one "more perfect" than the other?


The long layoff of comics talk ends as we take a look at both Transformers #57 and More Than Meets The Eye #57, which end the Titans Return arc leading in to Revolution. Plot points, reading orders, production, and more come up, and even the not-so-obvious backstory of one particular Decepticon. Plus, find out why in this particular universe, there's no debating that the Space Chicken's name is indeed Deathsaurus!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #158 "Altered Image"
Looking forward to this.


The Revolution is here - and we're excited to see Hasbro's interconnected comics universe take flight. Or at least, we were. Is this crossover event coming at the expense of some of the things that have made TF comics great the last few years? Yes, actually, it's pretty forgettable. Dire Wraiths just aren't interesting, but at least Josh Boyfriend might help the Revolution: Transformers one-shot title temporarily lift us up.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #158 "Altered Image"
That's why I changed my name.


Now for something completely different: what makes the definitive version of a character from the fictional standpoint, and how does the idea of a character transform (pun intended!) over multiple iterations? The crew digs deep into Sparkler Mini-bots, and of course, our favorite despotic Decepticon leader once more.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #158 "Altered Image"
Remember when we were a flying truck and the Batmobile?


Folks have been chomping at the bit for Titans Returns Brainstorm, a Walgreens exclusive. The crew dispenses tips of the hunting trade to increase your chances of finding this sought after figure. Or you can order online. On the fence? Check out Seibertron's pictorial review.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #158 "Altered Image"
Get yours!


We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording? There might even be beasts involved, especially those that have something to do with possibility, but this particular beast probably isn't the one you're trying to connect to Transformers. Don't worry though, plenty of on-topic, Transformers related acquisitions are discussed within!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #158 "Altered Image"
Now available at your local TJ Maxx & Marshalls! Enjoy these special sets before they decide to never do things like them again!

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your actually-in-mortal-danger host ScottyP, overseas adventurer xRotorstormx, and Generations junkie Megatronus - listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #157 "NYCC 2016" 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.

As you may have figured out, this show is all about New York Comic Con 2016, and as such, we're all bout dem toys. Seibertron himself and faithful sidekick Megatronus were at the scene, and you can check out all of Seibertron's NYCC 2016 galleries here.

We jump into things with the one, the only, the kaiju Decepticon: Trypticon. Hasbro's brand team was at NYCC on Thursday showing off a tantalizing leg of the upcoming fan vote Titan Class figure, and boy, do we like that leg. Listen in as we discuss the sheer scale of this figure as related to our favorite Titan Masters.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #157 "NYCC 2016"
John Warden, the leg whisperer.


Next order of business: Leader Class Sixshot. This mean 6-changer was out in full force, with all modes on display. Between the sweet helmet and submarine-that-is-definitely-not-a-gun-turned-upside-down mode, there's a whole lot to love with this Leader Class figure.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #157 "NYCC 2016"
Pure beauty.


There's another phase-sixer on our list: Black Shadow. This tank + jet combination turned heads, if only because he's not Overlord... yet. The crew excitedly explores the mundane subject of release ordering, and delves into Black Shadow's Pretender history, his relationship to Thunderwing, and the relatively recent Generations version of the character. Excelsior!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #157 "NYCC 2016"
What a mug!


On to triple-changers: we get to Broadside, and his wonderful miniaturized Aerialbots, and Optimus Prime, who is, well, Optimus Prime. We have high hopes for both of these molds, albeit as other characters *cough*Octane*cough*, but hey, you never know when you'll need an Optimus around the holidays.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #157 "NYCC 2016"
Tiny but awesome.


Have you noticed a scale progression here? Well, if you have, you know it's time for Generations Titans Return to continue on with Deluxe Class and Legends Class. The main reveal here was Deluxe Perceptor, with his G1 + IDW infused appearance, and Brawn and Kickback - but do they belong? Listen in as ScottyP puts forward his theory that these figures were holdovers from another era entirely.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #157 "NYCC 2016"
Unlike his chest, his origins are unclear.


Yes, we are dedicating a paragraph to Repugnus, who is adorable, and whom many on the Twincast are troop building!?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #157 "NYCC 2016"
Don't you just want to eat him up???


Robots in Disguise isn't completely forgotten, with new reveals from Combiner Force and the Warrior Class taking center stage. The possibilities are endless, with throwbacks to Armada, Energon, Victory, and even M.A.S.K. showing up through the upcoming products for Robots in Disguise.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #157 "NYCC 2016"
Still no T-Bob.



After the NYCC talk with some Movie discussion - namely, Takara's upcoming line to celebrate the 10th Anniversary since the live action Transformers Movie in 2007. Besides the obvious question of 'Why?', the Twincast gets into the nitty gritty of premium decos, and which figures they're most excited to see reissued. Time to get pumped for TF5!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #157 "NYCC 2016"
I totally copied.


We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording - or since xRotorstormx returned from Japan?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #157 "NYCC 2016"
She didn't get this, but something INTERESTING and related...

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.

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


Hope you enjoyed listening! Check back in about two weeks as New York Comic Con 2016 lays the smack down on the news cycle.

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!

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"

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.

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.

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.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #151 "SDCC 2016"
Bringing the bling.
