A we've been mentioning through today, site owner Seibertron was able to make the trip the Children's Museum on Indianapolis, in order to visit the new, Hasbro licensed, Transformers: Robots in Disguise exhibit we reported on a while ago!
If you head below and click on the images provided, you can take a look at a fairly extensive gallery covering the various parts of the history of the Transformers showcased, from interactive features, the prototypes and models on show (from unused toys to BotShots and more), the Soundwave through the ages collection, the vehicles of Movie Optimus Prime and Bumblebee on display, a Beast Wars diorama, a "design a Transformer" area, cartoons running in a room where kids can play with simplified 3 Step Transformers, an area where you can "become a Transformer" by motion-capture controlling a screen Bumblebee, and much much more than meets the eye!
We have a new entry in the Seibertron.com galleries, and we're working in a slightly different order too. Feast your optics below, by clicking on any of the images, on a full gallery of the recently released Leader class Transformers Generation Combiner Wars Armada Megatron!
Though not a combiner itself, it still falls under the 2015 toyline, and much like deluxe Armada Starscream, homages the Unicron trilogy cartoon of the same name. The toy shares the mold with the more G1esque tank Megatron (stay tuned for more on that!), features a new antlered headsculpt and orange/green/purple deco, plus a firing missile, telescopic arm cannon and a big purple rifle gun. Check it out below!
The newest update in the Seibertron.com galleries brings us QT11 Autobot Meister (Toyota Sprinter Trueno AE86), QT12 Sunstreaker (Mazda RX-7 FD3S), QT13 Alert (Lamborghini Countach LP500S), and QT14 Smokescreen (Nissan Fairlady Z 280Z-T) in their homage to the Choro-Q line (which you might know as Penny Racers outside of Japan). Click on any image below to view the full works!
It has been a really long time since we dusted off this part of the boards, too, as the last Transformers Power Core Combiners galleries were posted all the way back in 2010! As Seibertron.com's gallery machine is churning out its catch-up material, though, let us travel down the predecessors to the current Combiner Wars technology with four new galleries of the later wave of the little Scout-sized and Minicon two-packs, including some of the most sought after molds in the line.
Click on any image below to take a look at full galleries for Decepticon boatformer Undertow with Waterlog, Jhiaxus-looking Skyhammer with Airlift Minicon, blue Mudslinger repaint Salvage and its partner Bomb-Burst, and the extremely rare and popular tank that could Heavytread, complete with Groundspike. Each figure is shown in its three modes: vehicle, robot and combiner torso (core) with the automorphing limbs found in five-packs - check them all out below!
In 1990, the Transformers Zone OVA videocassette was released in Japan, collecting the entirety of the Victory sequel - consisting of just the one episode! The 'series' follows new Autobot leader Dai Atlas, and focused on the Micromasters, in their Planet Zone defense base. Among them, Rabbicrater, commander of Zone City's lunar base and pilot, the newest offering in the Seibertron.com galleries!
The Rabbicrater figure itself is a blue redeco of the 1989 Skystalker mold, and transforms into a Porsche 959 sports car. Purchasing the OVA videocassette was the only means to acquire the figure too, and you can take a look at both items in our galleries, by clicking on any image below!
It's been a while since we visited this side of the Transformers toyverse, but Seibetron has just acquired two latecoming Power Attacker figures that just had to be shared with everyone! Check out below two new gallery additions from the Age of Extinction line, featuring High Octane Bumblebee and the contender for one of the best names out there, Chainsaw Thrash Vehicon!
The latter is the only incarnation of a character that was sort of seen in the movieverse, if not the last film specifically, and comes with chainsaw splitting gun action, while the latest iteration of Bumblebee features more or less the same body as the Generations Deluxe version, with spring loaded cannon gimmick. Click on any image for the full galleries, as always.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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!
That wraps things up for this very special episode. We sincerely hope you enjoy this one, definitely had a blast on this end putting it together. See you in approximately two weeks as we attempt to get back on to a more "regular" show schedule between now and Botcon.
Don't forget, the show only gets better if you tell us how. Drop us a review on iTunes and be sure to tell us what you love, what you hate, and what you want to hear!
Not on the show to give your take? Probably not, so don't forget to keep the discussion going on the Seibertron.com Energon Pub Forums by simply replying to this post!
Got a question for the Twincast? We take all of them, we just don't take them all seriously! Leave a question in the Ask the Twincast thread and, if it makes the cut, it may get read and answered on the show.
We brought you the Decepticons last update, time for some Autobots in the ranks of the Seibertron.com galleries! Click on any of the images below to view the full sequence for the Takara Tomy Transformers Gneerations Autobots Specialists set of Ironhide, Hound (with Ravage) and Mirage.
As the title of the set might tip you off, and just like the Decepticon set, the three figures plus one are shinier redecos of the previously released figures from the Henkei/Classics line - you can find the first iteration of the three characters here, here and here. You can stack the boxes of the two sets to connect the lovely new artwork, too,
The final final Seibertron.com gallery galloping in from day one of New York Toy Fair 2015 concerns nothing of the Transformers sort, but has been marked - despite the neigh-sayers - as Hasbro's golden brand, the money maker, the heart warmer, the cutie bringer: My Little Pony! Site owner Seibertron has chosen to show us the new line, from themed sets to Equestria Girls, via soft toys, clothing, stationery and apparel - just click on any of the images below to view the gallery! A video can also be found after the images.
The final gallery concerning Transformers products for 2015, as revealed by Hasbro at the New York Toy Fair, is for the bots of a younger persuasion among us - as Rescue Bots brings in some extra recruits in the form of Salvage, Blurr and High Tide, new playsets, more Dr Morocco and plenty of Playskool goodness to the folds. Click on any image below for the gallery!
