Courtesy of iTunes, via the magic of IDW's Mariel Romero, we get a brief preview to the aftermath of Slaughterhouse in Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye #33. Check out the sneak peek below, and probably head back here in a week for the full works! WARNING - Contains gigantic spoilers for the last issue.
REVELATIONS! The fate of an entire planet hangs in the balance as MEGATRON races to solve the dark riddle of Sector 113. As unseen forces move in for the kill and old friends reveal their true colors, the AUTOBOTS realize that everything—everything—is a lie. All this...and an open briefcase.
Welcome to the latest edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host for the evening, ScottyP, along with Jon 3.0, Rotorstorm and Tigertrack. Tonight we discuss those bizarre cloud figures, some neat TFCC goodies, a really drool worthy Masterpiece figure and how times are changing in the collecting world.
(0:20 - 10:48)
We start of the night discussing the newly released images of TFC-D04 Hellwarp and TFC-A04 Roadbuster ... will anyone actually be getting these figures? Guess you'll have to tune in to find out.
p.s If you have your figures on display, here is a must buy!
(19:23 - 27:28)
Of course we NEED to discuss these incredible photos of MP Ultra Magnus...
...as well as how excited we are for this guy, Star Saber!
(27:29 - 46:38)
With the overload of products coming out, we discuss a topic that has been at the forefront of a lot of collectors minds lately. Are we experiencing another exodus of collectors? Has the enthusiasm for the brand been diminishing and why? Listen in to hear what we think and our personal views on this topic.
...and it probably wasn't a good idea for Rotorstorm to mention that she finally started buying the comics. *epic fail*
(01:09:23 - 01:20:49)
Up next we have a listener question that the cast probably could have gone on for hours about.
(01:20:50 - end)
And of course we close the night with our bragging rights! Tune in to hear what goodies we were able to get our hands on finally.

Have you ever thought what goes into creating the toys, other than design and production, plastic and rubber? Thanks to a tip from Seibertron.com user and voice actor jON3.0, we get a look at voice talents, among others, Rick Sellers, Brad Henderson, Walt Wise, and producer Wes McCraw talking and testing the recordings for the Transformers: Age of Extinction toy line, from Grimlock and Lockdown to Stinger and Bumblebee!

A couple of Transformers: Universe MOBA updates, courtesy of their official Facebook page, and it's both for the purple corner of the arena.

What do you think on these two? Let us know in the Energon Pub!
Decepticons of Transformers Universe! We thought we'd share a little advanced teaser with you of a new warrior that's on the horizon. Keep your crazy excitement to a minimum though, we don't want a Pandemic on our hands...
"Peace through tyranny!" #Decepticons #AllHailMegatron
