Want to know what's in this episode? Check out below for a brief rundown!
Transformers 4: The Age of Extinction Toys
You knew they were coming, but did you know that they were going to possibly look. like. THIS! Who likes the style and who doesn't? What's your impression of how the new movie line will be received after our first images of Age of Extinction Leader Class Optimus Prime were shared via New York Comic Con? The Twincast, of course, shares their open-minded and certainly never pessimistic ideas.
New Masterpiece News!
The next new mold Autobot car has been released, and many of the podcast were lucky enough to have Masterpiece 17 Prowl in-hand to let our listeners know exactly just how much you should want this toy. (We also talk about boobies...I mean hoods, grills, and headlights of a car.)
Weren't we just speaking about masterpieces? Our crew sounds off on what has taken so long to become a reality, and makes an effort to try to convince any US retailers to take a shot at an MP-Ultra Magnus as a store/holiday exclusive. 1986 movie cast rules!
Shout out to Vince Dicola!
We love the 1986 Transformers movie, and thus, we can be moved to want to own everything related to it including the excellent score. Well some of us. Let nothing stand in your way of hearing about this cool music collectible.
The podcast is really looking forward to the IDW DARK CYBERTRON event, and RID 21 discussion and spoilers get us thinking about what will be.
Rise of the Predacons!
The crew of the Twincast discusses the finale of the PRIME and BEAST HUNTERS TV SHOW and recaps some of the entire series' failings, and successes. Some critical analysis of some plot pieces and characters leads us to try to decide on whether or not this was an endeavor that we overall enjoyed, or not, and leads us to wonder what comes next?
Remembering A God
The great Orson Welles, who played his final role for the Transformers franchise as the voice of the biggest TF baddie ever, made fans take note and remember why this actor was so great (Robin Masters voice on MAGNUM PI!) on the anniversary of his passing.
'Small Cast' versus 'Selling Toys' versus 'Gimmicks'
The bridge crew of the ark 78 takes us on a journey for enlightenment as we discuss the new Transformers storytelling style that has been working its way into the media since Beast Wars and what this has meant for our enjoyment of the franchise. Why has the small, central cast become the norm? What does the introduction of new HASBRO/IDW characters and using them in the limited casts mean for those with classic favorites being left out? Is the small cast better than the rotation of a large cast that is more or less determined by product release? What is happening to all the gimmicks like all the masters (head-, power-, target-), energon weapons, and minicons for previous franchise examples that also used to drive the media? They seem to be non-existent in the most recent iterations of toys, shows, and comic books (Example: Arms Micron Takara vs. Prime HASBRO). When we're done there still is no answer...
Live from New York it's Seibertron.com!
Picture guy and home to us all, Ryan calls in to our discussion and let's us know how things were going out at the New York City Comic-con. Will he ever answer the question Bulkhead or Ironhide?
That's a wrap!
And finally the crew wraps up with recent toy purchase discussions, and many jealousies are had.
Good day, and thanks for listening to the TWINCAST PODCAST!
How do you ‘drop the mic’? In this episode of the Twincast, you’ll find out at least two ways that MC Razorclaw0000 and his crew of rhymin’ ROTORSTORM, jammin’ JON3.0, stylin’ SCOTTYP, slammin’ SEIBERTRON, and tenacious TIGERTRACK figured out how to do just that.
Episode 77 is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes within 24 to 48 hours of this news post. If you wish to try out the chapter enhanced version, it is available from here.
In a surprise move, HASBRO reveals plans for the near future in a toy magazine insert and of course, we all react! Dinobots are on our mind again, TF4, and will Beast Hunters ever end? What’s this new cartoon event about?
Club Subscription Service 1.0 Breakdown shows up, and we offer up praises to the club, and check out the new SEIBERTRON gallery. Then we kick about the subscription service 2.0 which has gone live with a cool sweet early-TF toy catalog advert image, and just how cool is this set shaping up to be?
Episode #76 educates your brain on the following topics:
(00:01:12) Getting to know Rotorstorm
(00:05:54) We got our Circuits closed, just in time to open up discussion on this latest club subscription figure.
(00:15:47) The cast raves about the inclusion of Microns in Transformers Subscription Service 2.0, except for Jon 3.0, who takes the time to instead crush our hopes and dreams of a never ending road into Micron glory.
(00:27:19) We take some time to discuss the other recent reveals from the Club: Fisitron, Rewind, and the idea of Eject.
(00:35:40) Seibertron recently sat down with the Club and interviewed them. Also: are we Pasadena bound next Summer?
(00:47:28) We Thrustinate deep into this topic – the final reveal from FSS 2.0!
(00:52:14) Another venture in to the wild world of Michael Bay is upon us. Dinobots, Titles, and villains galore! Spoilers within.
(01:10:36) Everyone drools over the upcoming Masterpiece Transformers. Or is one of them drooling at us?
(01:23:54) Metroplex and other Takara Generations toys are upon us. Who in the cast will take up the challenge of collecting them all?
(01:26:44) We stumble in to picking a winner of our Photo Contest, and Scotty comes up with the worst idea ever on how to do it. Thankfully, this idea is ignored.
Congratulations to our winner, Jackstraw!
(01:43:03) Jelly pants are had all around as an epic amount of bragging rights are unleashed. Will Scotty cry? What has Mike gotten into lately? And has Jon 3.0 got cool news to share?
(02:07:06) We wrap up the show as awkwardly as we can.
The Seibertron.comTwincast is back with another episode, featuring host Counterpunch along with regular crew Razorclaw, Seibertron, ScottyP, and Jon3.0. The episode is newly available with chapters in .m4a format, but may not work in all media players. If you wish to try out the new chapter enhanced version, it is available from here. As always, the episode is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes within 24 to 48 hours of this news post.
"In my mind I'm going to Carolina..." which is unfortunately exactly how I experienced Charticon, but Podcasters Mike, Scotty, and Jon, as well as Bob were there for a first hand experience of the small convention scene, which turned out to be not quite so small, and they describe it to me, Matt, and for you, the listening audience to enjoy. This episode is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes within 24 to 48 hours of this news post.
This episode of the Twincast has a couple of different pieces. The previously mentioned introduction by Counterpunch, Scotty P, Jon 3.0, and Tigertrack as we discuss small conventions, and Charticon specifically and some appropriate new news items like Generations Hoist and Thundercracker (and the other recently released Generations toys as well--check out the galleries!), the new Bot Shots reveals (cool new Soundwave!), and always relevant and reliable for a great discussion, the TRANSFORMERS COLLECTOR's CLUB and their sharing of the first full figure digital mock up of FSS 2.0 TREADSHOT and a secret scout-sized 7th character toy!
Also in this short first segment, these 4 guys (missing a guy and fries) also discuss KRE-O, retail release of Platinum Edition toys, and even touch on the comics a little as we discuss the recent 'Dark Cybertron' covers and what has interested us lately in comics.
Then, Part 2 of the podcast is a live recording from Charticon in North Carolina with podcasters Mike, Bob, and Scotty, and some other friends who joined them in discussions and fun.
Don't forget! The podcast is running a photo contest. We currently have two entries for this contest, so the rest of you need to pick up the slack, and show us your creativity, or you are just conceding that the two entries we have are THE MOST CREATIVE POSSIBLE...
See you around next time faithful listener, and thank you for listening to the podcast.
By the way, check out the image of Seibertron board member JRGReer74 and his awesome prize from CHARTICON! Congrats JRGreer74, many jealous board members salute you!
Join Mike (Counterpunch), Ryan (Seibertron), Scotty (Scotty P), and Matt (Tigertrack) as they flex collecting muscles to try to acquire the latest and greatest Transformers toys. This episode is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes within 24 to 48 hours of this news post.
In this episode, Ryan and Mike go in to collector nirvana describing what it's like owning the super-awesome collectible that so many now have their hands on ... Metroplex.
A little ol' convention called WONDERFEST happened, and there was some big yellow plasticy Scorponok thing shown on display next to G1 Fortress Maximus. The crew speculate, and wonder what does it actually mean? And then we talk dolls... like CM Corps new addition in Spike and Daniel Exosuits.
Then there's the hunting. Beast Hunters 'Rise of the Predacons' Exclusives, Target resets, Generations comic packs, and more seemed to magically appear all at the same time. Is Target the most consistent retailer for releasing similar toys at similar times in so many stores?
Not only are Beast Hunters toys making news, but the Beast Hunters cartoon showed its final episode, and we share a few thoughts on its finality, Bumblebee speaking, and what comes next for Transformers cartoons.
Believe it or not, the Twincast also had a few moments to talk about the SDCC TF/GI JOE Exclusive Set and how separate entities are having trouble playing nice when it comes to a certain white jet with black and red details, and super-cool fast pack jet engines.
Do you like free stuff? If so you may want to tune in as the crew of the podcast announces a bit of a contest. Details are in the show, and will be expounded on in this podcast thread. We're looking forward to your creativity. The winner will receive a new Generations deluxe class Transformers toy. Only U.S. residents and non-Seibertron.com staff members are eligible to win.
Thanks for tuning in! If you get a chance, please leave us some feedback about this episode. We really like to hear from our listeners!
Saturday night at BotCon unfolded like many previous BotCon Saturday nights. After the traditional dinner reception, many BotCon attendees partook in a fun Casino night accompanied by drinks and other entertainment. Many of us headed to Town & Country's Charlie's bar afterwards. Once the bar closed down, we thought it'd be fun to do an impromptu Seibertron.com Twincast/Podcast recording because, you know, that's always a good idea after a night of drinking and tomfoolery.
Many regular Seibertronian BotCon attendees were present ... some of the roster includes Joevill, El Duque, ScottyP, his girlfriend Candace, Rated X, Flux Convoy, Claire, Prime Evil, Mr and Mrs Delicon, and many others. If you were there, please feel free to join our conversation to share your thoughts about the first ever official SEIBERSOCIAL!
A word of caution about this episode ... it's a pretty raw episode. It was recorded around midnight on a Saturday night at BotCon after the bar closed. We were all having a really good time. During the episode, there are some ramblings, repeated questions, etc. And we all continued on with having fun while we were recording. It's a light hearted episode that some of you will find very entertaining while some of you will find it very annoying. It's just a carefree episode with a group of Seibertronians recording a moment in time at BotCon 2013. You've been officially warned!
This episode is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes within 24 to 48 hours of this news post.
Here are a few pictures from our Saturday night adventures courtesy of our good friend Joevill!

Ryan is M.I.A. but everyone is watching over Computron while the show continues to record!
Note from Ryan: This episode was recorded on July 12th, almost a week before SDCC. The craziness and 16+ hour days of Comic-Con prevented this episode from being posted last week and earlier this week. Without further ado, here's Episode #71: "SDCC 2013 Preview" ...
"It's Summertime in northern Michigan..." and everywhere else, even though Kid Rock only cared about the latter, Ryan and Matt discuss vacations, trolls, and yoopers, and then the group gets SERIOUS! Join master of ceremonies Mike (Counterpunch), and the likes of Ryan (Seibertron), Matt (tigertracks 24), and guest-orator Scotty P (Scotty P)! Beat the summer heat and listen to these chaps talk Transformers as the Eve of Sand Diego Comic-Con is upon us.

This iteration of the Twincast talks about the Transformers exclusive toys that are to be available to purchase at SDCC and hopefully, on HASBRO TOY SHOP early next week. We focus mainly on the insanely shiny and gigantic Metroplex; but also talk about 'the pales in comparison, but still nice Shockwave's Lab'; and the "not even Action Masters" vinyl figures set. In case you missed it, Ryan also posted galleries here on Seibertron of all 3 exclusives, including quite a few comparison Metroplex pics between the SDCC Exclusive and the retail HASBRO release. The debate is on as to what version of versions YOU MUST OWN (or not, no pressure)!
You can also hear our thoughts on the Takara Tomy SENATOR RATBAT Generations toy, Toys R Us' Masterpiece Pre-order eBay Auction Oopsies, the newest toys like TT vs. HASBRO Hoist, TT vs. HASBRO Blitzwing and Springer, the new Construct-a-bots Blitzwing in-hand review by Scotty P, and much, much, more!
This week on the Twincast podcast live from parking lot of the Circle K, we join a dynamic uno and his partner as they discuss recent Transformers related stuff. Air guitars ready? "Excellent!" Let's hope we don't run into any evil robot us's. (cue riff)
As always, the episode is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes within 24 to 48 hours of this news post.
Listen to host Counterpunch S. Preston Esquire and his sidekick tigertracks24 Theodore Logan as they jam on a WILD STALLION something near-and-dear to ol' tt24's heart, Masterpiece Tigertrack(s), as well as the most recent developments about Transformers 4 vehicles and setting. What results is a bit of love for Lamborghini's and a geography lesson...
Also the awesome pair with the great hair shares thoughts about other toy news like the SDCC Exclusive GI JOE Transformers Crossover Set ("Whoa..."), the Beast Hunters exclusives ("Heinous..."), and Generations Trailcutter ("Station!").
Our trip in the phone booth concludes with some Botcon talk including a final wrap on the exclusive figures set and it's 'totally awesome' box and the guest lineups, which then transitions to some bragadocious bragging rights when the twosome becomes a threesome and ends the jam session as the wily Jon 'RUFUS' 3.0 pops in just in time to say, "Adieu!"
