We start the night off with some fun chit chat but it doesn't take long for the crew to dive in to what everyone wants to hear... and that is toy talk!
First up we discuss Combiner Wars!, the newly revealed combiner toys from Hasbro that were on display at San Diego Comic Con...Has Hasbro finally answered our prayers for combiners or is something else motivating them??
(20:14 - 38:10)
We then follow up with some in depth discussion about the stunticons.
(38:10 - 53:20)
Up next we will discuss our thoughts on the new Generations Voyagers, SkyByte and Roadbuster. (...and hey, don't forget to check out the JAWSOME photo galleries of them!)
(53:20 - oops! We kinda got distracted ) Tankor and Rattrap are finally starting to appear at retail. Some of us have them in hand so tune in to hear what the cast thinks of these figures...and by the way, they are in stock at HTS!
Up next, we discussed the TFCC and their 2 big figure reveals. The 2015 membership freebie figure, Lio Convoy, and the club exclusive figure, Nova Prime.
...and then we derailed a bit... but it's all in good fun
We then talk about the new images of Masterpiece Star Saber that surfaced but...how well will this MP figure do? Is Star Saber popular enough? Tune in to hear our answers.
Up next, we have our favorite segment...Listener questions!!
(1:47:57 - 2:27:30)
We then close out the night with some bragging rights.
Thanks everyone for listening and we appreciate the continued support! Don't forget, the show only gets better if you tell us how. Drop us a review on iTunes or Stitcher Radioand be sure to tell us what you love, what you hate, and what you want to hear!

Reading the news today, you may come across the creation of the first type of transforming robots on behalf of a team of Harvard scientists - alas, not yet close to the type we're used to, but it's a big step forward in robotics and manufacturing industries nonetheless! Check out below a selection from the press release at EurekAlert!, a video about the robots, and read an article about it here.
Origami robot folds itself up, crawls away
Prototype made almost entirely of printable parts demonstrates crucial capabilities of reconfigurable robots
For years, a team of researchers at MIT and Harvard University has been working on origami robots — reconfigurable robots that would be able to fold themselves into arbitrary shapes.
In the August 7 issue of Science, they report their latest milestone: a robot, made almost entirely from parts produced by a laser cutter, that folds itself up and crawls away as soon as batteries are attached to it.
"The exciting thing here is that you create this device that has computation embedded in the flat, printed version," says Daniela Rus, the Andrew and Erna Viterbi Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT and one of the Science paper's co-authors. "And when these devices lift up from the ground into the third dimension, they do it in a thoughtful way."
We reported yesterday a sighting of these figure over in the Philippines, but Seibertron.com member chuckdawg1999 was able to get hold of a couple of them earlier across to the US - and has provided us with a second review, this time featuring Generations Legends Cliffjumper and Suppressor!
Sometimes the repaint of a mold can end up being a little better than the original, such is the case with Cliffjumper. Cliffjumper is a straight repaint of the wave 1 Generations Legends Bumblebee mold but I noticed an easier time pegging the arms in for car mode, I freely admit though that the hips felt just a touch looser. Partnered with Suppressor a repaint of Targetmaster Roller Cliffjumper ends up with some serious firepower, unfortunately much like with Optimus Prime, the combined gun ends up being a bit to heavy to properly wield. All in all this is a fantastic set.
After yesterday's size comparison shot of the upcoming Takara Tomy Masterpiece Star Saber in its powered up mode, TFYuki has posted another image, this time showing off Saber, the smaller robot, compared to MP Prowl. Check out the image mirrored below, thanks to Seibertron.com member Sabrblade!
Here's an update for those of you into the Transformers Legends mobile game, courtesy of Mobage's official Facebook page. A new event, including the usual exclusive art launched today: get ready for Autobot X! Check out more details below, and the mirrored image.
Spike was seriously hurt in a Decepticon assault, so his Autobot pals set his mind in the body of Autobot X to save his life. Alas, the Decepticons quickly turned the cyborg against his former friends. Will the Autobots rescue Spike before the cyborg destroys them first? Find out today in TRANSFORMERS: Legends – “AUTOBOT X”!
