Welcome to part two of the Seibertron.com Twincast/Podcast's coverage of Botcon 2016. This episode stars 'the Michiganders who stayed at home', RodimusConvoy13 and Tigertrack. We discuss our reactions to the images of the Botcon attendee exclusives and the reveals at the annual big Botcon Hasbro panel. Speaking of Hasbro, this interview also features an on-site interview with members of the Hasbro Transfomers brand team!

Episode #141 “Botcon 2016 Part 2: Homers“ 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.

Our discussion agenda was simple... it went a little like this...BOTCON BOTCON BOTCON...botcon, botcon, BOTCON.

From the early displays on Friday, to the new reveals on Saturday, we discuss Titan Returns, the Platinum set exclusives-- especially the new Autobot Warriors Pack--, the new set of club subscription figures, and we spend a heavy dose of time comparing the HASBRO vs. UNITE WARRIORS COMPUTRON sets with the real winner being, us, the fans (unless you wanted individual releases then well...)!

"It is indeed, just a repaint of that G1 pretender shell that so few people have..."

A couple of other topics that are also touched on are what we wanted to see, or wanted to see more of, and didn't, including those little teasers that we we were given: once at the end of the slide show presentation (prior to 'see you in 2017') and once on the cross-sell of a new package (Lio Kaiser combined).

Having both been Botcon veterans we too reminisce about Botcons and exclusives past, and where and what the future might hold, with no real answers, but plenty of questions.

Where's Waldo?--both of us happen to appear in this picture.

After we wrap up those proceedings, there's more! This epic show continues with an interview, featuring special guests from Hasbro, Brand Marketing Manager Ben Montano and Product Designer Ed Masielo. Counterpunch, Scotty P, and more of the charming accent of Dr. Va'al ask some burning questions to members of the Transformers brand team. A big thanks to Hasbro, as well as our friends at Rogers & Cowan for making this happen!

Botcon 2016 weekend has come and gone, and the Seibertron.com Twincast is proud to present the first of three episodes of material recorded during our convention adventures. Part 1 is all about the road trip, with recordings from the Twincast crew while driving to Louisville.

Episode #140 “Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down“ 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.

Your Botcon recap show starts with none other than the journey to the show itself! Seibertron, Starscream, and Dr. Va'al himself hit the road from Chicago to Louisville and recap the history of the show. But first, comics talk.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #140 "Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down"
Managed to be relevant to the Botcon set after all!


How much comics talk? Well, it all starts out with Megatron: Origin. Dr. Va'al leads a deep dive through how that foundation has led to the current events with Megatron in More Than Meets The Eye.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #140 "Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down"
Hot Rod's just ready for Botcon.


Road trip conversations can, and do, go anywhere. Even Pretenders come up along the way, with thoughts about what could happen if they mastered all the things. Ultra-Ultra Pretenders? That's right, they'll frame up the ongoing conversation about the Titan Master gimmick.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #140 "Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down"
No hiding this head.


The Botcon set itself then takes over the focus, including the Dawn of the Predacus boxed set and attendee freebie Terrorsaur.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #140 "Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down"
Red Dawn


A look back at Botcons of the past continues the conversation. Relive memories of the past with all your Botcon pals like Deathsaurus, Tyrese, Clench, and more.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #140 "Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down"
From figures to the red carpet and back again.


That wasn't the only crew headed out on the open road. Scotty P and Razorclaw0000 wearily pass the last hour of their road trip from Raleigh by recording thoughts just for you. You'll have to excuse the quality on this one, as the rough road and some otherworldly environments took their toll on the recorder's mic.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #140 "Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down"
Artist's interpretation of totally real events from the road trip.


After the brief origin story, current events are back in focus as we speculate on toys seen but not yet owned, those being this year's Botcon souvenir figures. Listen to what we're thinking about them mere hours before they're in our possession.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #140 "Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down"
I mean, at least this mode is cool, right?


A big part of Botcon is the dealer and exhibitor room. ScottyP and Razorclaw go through their wishlists, with some items that are painful to hear about now that the convention has passed. When will Black Mach appear? What big ticket things were targets? How many Mini-cons will not be found? All this, and a cow pooping on the highway.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #140 "Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down"
MORE Seekers!?


After a slightly boring look at the populations of Louisville as compared to our hometowns, we think about what we'd do differently for the future of Transformers conventions. After listening to this, you'll probably be glad we're leaving these things to the experts!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #140 "Botcon 2016 Part 1: Eastbound and Down"
We just want to keep rock alive.


Stay tuned very soon for Episode 141, which will feature some of our more traditional convention news reactions and coverage.

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!

After the release of the Hasbro Studios and Sony Music album Roll Out, in which bands were asked to contribute Transformers-inspired music, artist Lisa Harriton - front of the Elle Rae band - spoke to online music magazine Roland for some behind the scenes stuff. Check it out here, and a snippet and the music video for the track embedded below!

What came first, the lyrics or the music?
Lisa: The music actually came first for this one. I was borrowing a baritone guitar from a friend, and I was so inspired by it! I wrote this guitar riff and verse melody but never finished the song. The musical idea was always there in the back of my mind, and I knew it was special for the right situation. When the opportunity came up, to be a part of this special album inspired by one of my favorite childhood toys, I was so excited to put the two together! I brought the idea to my writing partner Joshua Bartholomew, and he was really inspired by it, too. He picked up a bass, and I picked up a guitar, and it all came together pretty quickly.

BURBANK, Calif. – April 15, 2016 – Today Hasbro Studios, the Los Angeles-based entertainment division of Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) and Sony Music Entertainment announce the release of Transformers Roll Out, an alt-rock tribute to the wildly popular hit Hasbro Transformers franchise.

It was an amazing experience working with Hasbro to produce this album and to contribute the title song Roll Out,” said album producer and Mount Holly lead guitarist Nick Perri. “The album embodies the action-packed high energy vibe that Transformers is known for and also brings in some outer world ambience and emotionally driven songs as well. All of the artists were thrilled to deliver on the mission.”

Allspark got a word with composer Robert J Walsh, who stated that he is curently working on remastering the scores for the 80s television shows of Hasbro properties. Here is what he said:

I am working on the remastering now, and Hasbro and I are excited and looking forward to the releases of Transformers, G.I. Joe My Little Pony, series and movie, as well as Jem & the Holograms – starting around 1983 through 1988 or so. The original master tapes were in great condition, and I plan on remastering everything into 5.1 surround. We are not definite on this part yet, but may produce this in a boxed DVD set with newly filmed interviews of cast and crew and original artwork and some video footage. This is fairly large orchestra very well recorded with an MCI console in a European recording studio, and it’s sounding pretty spectacular so far. Sony Records will be releasing the albums.


This should be coming out in summer 2016 or later.
