The Titans Return toys have arrived, and the Seibertron.com Twincast/Podcast also returns for episode 149 with host Scotty P, along with Rotorstorm, RodimusConvoy13, and Seibertron. If you're in the mood for toys, this is your episode, with an entire show dedicated to Titans Return as well as a few other recent Transformers Generations releases from around the world.

Episode #149 “Titans Arrive“ 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.

Oh, and if you're looking for non-toy talk, check out Episode 150 for an entire episode devoted to Sins of the Wreckers!

With a new toyline upon us, we take stock of all the in-hand impressions we can give you on each of the toys that one or more cast members has in their possession. You can follow along as we go from toy to toy using the Titans Return toy galleries, which are being updated almost daily with comprehensive photos of all the new toys.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
Prepare to hear about this guy. A lot about this guy.


After taking time for the Voyagers we chat it up about the deluxes from the first wave: Scourge, Hardhead, Skullsmasher, and Blurr. What car mode has zoomed into our hearts? Is it a boat or a spacecraft? Tune in for answers to some of this, and you may even figure out a way to make your Skullcruncher a bit more stable when standing.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
Squeezecruncher, perhaps?


Bases are in this year, right? The Leader Class Powermaster Optimus Primeand wave mate Blaster prepare to host all the little bots as they build their Cybertronian cities. Is this play pattern something you like to indulge in, or are these gimmicks too obtrusive for you? Let us know what you think in the thread, and post pictures of your best base modes too!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
If we actually took anyone's money for this show, we'd just use it to turn our recording areas into large replicas of this.


The Titan Masters get their due time as well, with Nightbeat, Loudmouth, and more driving their tiny tanks all around the conversation. Or is it a floating tank?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
Supplemental, complementary, or is that too much math?


Just in time for this edition of the show, Fortress Maximus arrives at Seibertron HQ. Experience a live unboxing (sort of), first impressions, and even some serious armature. You know, to attach his arm. Like Metroplex, only more fortress-y.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
Drive me closer!


Combiner Wars isn't totally over, and a quick time out from the Titans is in order as we look at some of that line's later releases including the recently released Unite Warriors Bruticus set. This one features new mold Blast-Off, plus some other enhanced deco editions of the Combaticons and other minor retools such as Vortex's blades. Find out if we recommend this set, or if it's just a swindle.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
With apologies to Casey Kasem


There's even a bit of the Transformers Subscription Service lending a limb, and a new matrix, to this episode. Windsweeper and the Matrix of Malice have arrived in mailboxes. With a slick new deco, we have plenty to say about this latest entry from the Transformers Collectors' Club, and even convene the most pointless debate ever about which Matrix mold it uses.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
MP-10 to put it in not included.


After talking still more about Titans Return, and then more about it, and then more about Galvatron again (and again), we at last move on to finish the episode out with some bragging rights.

Because you, the listeners, demanded it, the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast returns with the Mainframes podcast's second episode, focusing purely on the world of Transformers comics in an in-depth way. The team assembles early on a Sunday morning with Scotty P, Mr. Starscream, and Dr. Va'al returning to dissect, praise, explain, and speculate away about the recently completed Transformers series Sins of the Wreckers.

Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule." 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.

If you're looking for non-comics talk about the latest Transformers toys, check out Episode 149 with our lengthy, in depth coverage of Titans Return toys.

We take our time and look all the way back to the start, remembering those first pages initially seen last October. This also quickly gets in to analysis of the books tone, color palette, and layouts, all of which are a style very prevalent through each issue of the book.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule."
That Ashcan issue was a long time ago now.


The return of Springer is an unavoidable topic, with the character being extremely pivotal to the story told in the series. We discuss the timing of his return, and the potential repercussions of it that may lie beyond. It starts out just fine, but beware, part of this absolutely calls for your tin foil hat!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule."
A hardcover collection's prose story pays off all over again.


Of course, this story also wouldn't be the same without Prowl. Just how did he get here, and what did Rattrap have to do with it or not? Plus - pulling the trigger and the difficulty thereof.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule."
Reasonably placed blame


Dr. Va'al drops a bomb on the speculation front as we look back at Roadbuster's flashback. Pharma, Tarantulas, Hubcap, Mortilus, and Luna 1 come together in a way that catches the other cast members off guard. What do you think of this theory and what it could mean to the IDW-verse moving forward?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule."
Maybe he'll pull out the RKO next time?


The main villain of Sins, Tarantulas, also comes front and center. Is this spider really big and bad, or just one of those two? Also, tiny. Internal. Robot. Heads.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule."
Not the only grey one in the room?


The book's humor comes up as we work towards wrapping up any plot synopsis, and if you haven't been able to tell already, this show will completely spoil the book all the way to the end.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule."
What those that get spoiled will do to their Twincast subscription.


A short timeout follows to reflect on the humor ever present just beyond the surface. From Verity's violent science, to Impactor's quips, to a beached whale, find out the moments that we chuckled at (whether we should have or not) and share your favorites with us!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule."
Free Willzyx


We also take up some of your questions from the Energon Pub Forums, including one that many fans want to know about when the book occurs. You can get the answer to that one without listening as it's just below, but tune in to see if your question got answered as well!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule."
From page 1 of Transformers #45


To close things up, we take one last look at speculation surrounding the events of the last few pages. What awaits Impactor, Springer, Verity, and the others, and did Tarantulas survive? What might Revolution have to do with it all? While many plot lines were closed up nicely, yet more questions await answers in the coming months.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #150 "Wreck. Rule."
I thought it was!


We hope you enjoyed this latest episode of Twincast / Podcast spin-off Mainframes, and stay tuned after More Than Meets The Eye wraps up its current arc for more analysis, speculation, and just maybe even some special guests! We'll see you in the discussion thread which you can join in on by replying to this very news post.

It's been another weekend, another late Thursday night has come and gone, and you know what that means? Another work week. But to help you along to the next weekend, we’ve got some Transformers related comics, Beast Wars, Fort Max, Unicron, and toy packaging content for you to listen in on, and then share your ideas and thoughts about in this episode’s thread.

Leading us though this journey is ScottyP, who’s joined by the always introspective, Counterpunch, and mitten-state dwelling daddios, RodimusConvoy13 and Tigertrack. And Rom the Spaceknight.

Episode #148 “And Rom The Space Knight“ 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 first chat is about the most recent issue of Transformers #54, and new phoenix series Transformers: ’TIl All Are One #1 (from the ashes of Windblade comes…) and of course, not to be left out a little something we like to call More Than Meets the Eye, issue #54. As we learn bits and pieces more about it, our team returns to talk a little more about ‘The Revolution’, MASK, and Rom the Spaceknight.

Transformers News: Twincast/Podcast Episode #148: "And Rom The Space Knight"

The group breaks into comic book discussion on the lighter side talking about Transformers #54 (or Robots in Disguise, whatever you refer to it as) and whether the current arc is getting any better or not. We definitely treat this one pretty lightly, but you can expect SPOILERS in each issue…if you don’t want to hear them time for some fast forwarding. We’ve got reviews for these three issues on site as well (Review for TF #54, Review for TAAO #1, and Review for MTMTE #54) if you want to read some more about these issues.

What is Galvatron’s final play…does he have a trump card or is it all on the table? Will Superion ever combine again? Are Optimus Prime and Starscream on even footing now (both chosen ones in the eyes of the Titans)? Is this how you pictured COMBINER WARS playing out?

Transformers News: Twincast/Podcast Episode #148: "And Rom The Space Knight"

The newest series in the Transformers family is ’Til All Are One’, the phrase that meant a lot in the beloved 1986 movie, and since has been re-uttered in the new movies, cartoons, and other media a little ad nauseum. This is the rebirth of the Windblade series as something that maybe isn’t supposed to be so Windblade-centric, but more about new era Cybertron united and its Council of Worlds.

Transformers News: Twincast/Podcast Episode #148: "And Rom The Space Knight"


The launch issue focuses in on events and characters related to Swindle and what he may or may not have known, and how it is effecting Starscream, the Combaticons, and the rest of Cybertron.

We ask pretty obvious questions like, “Is Swindle still alive?”, “Who is DC- 357?”, but introspectively Counterpunch brings to point Starscream, and his precariously balanced leadership position.

And MTMTE… so many questions, and many answers… which lead to more questions. Our big question, “Should Megatron die?”, and related to that “Will Megatron actually die in issue #55?” Some awesome hypotheses on what’s in this hollow planet and where RUNG and NIGHTBEAT are during all this super-powered fighting and action and what does CHOOM, CHOOM, CHOOM signal to us.

Transformers News: Twincast/Podcast Episode #148: "And Rom The Space Knight"

To wrap up the comic discussion, we talk more REVOLUTION, since we received some new solicits, we look into our crystal balls again and decide if the TRANSFORMERS universe is getting a soft reboot, no reboot, or a very hard reboot. And ROM the Spaceknight.

Transformers News: Twincast/Podcast Episode #148: "And Rom The Space Knight"

Whew. That was a lot.

*Writer's Note*- not in the podcast though- I wanted to give some love to Nick Roche who is creating some truly awesome stuff for Transformers fans and recently went through a series of very traumatic and wonderful events causing the delay in a product we were really anxious for. Nick recently shared his trials and triumphs in a blogpost. We love you brother, be well, and enjoy the new addition. Thank you for all of your efforts in these times.

Transformers News: Twincast/Podcast Episode #148: "And Rom The Space Knight"


On to our Beast Wars Re-Watch, Re-Action, “my queen”. This time we watched episode 18, ‘Spider’s Game’, and episode 19, ‘Call of the Wild’. “Defend the hive!” These episodes introduced the ever cool, very memorable, or not, but ultimately hot, pyromaniac loyalist— INFERNO (no not that INFERNO, which is also very cool, but not talked about this time)! Not everyone thinks Inferno is so awesome though, and we discuss the introduction of this new soldier and his place in Predacon history. And Rom the Spaceknight.

Transformers News: Twincast/Podcast Episode #148: "And Rom The Space Knight"


We briefly reach into our creative bags and throw some paint schemes out there for the new PLATINUM EDITION UNICRON and KRANIX. Clown Unicorn was my favorite, but Scotty preferred the Rom colored one (not actual things, listen for our ideas).
Transformers News: Twincast/Podcast Episode #148: "And Rom The Space Knight"


Oh my, SDCC is coming soon, and we share what version of TITAN MASTERS FORTRESS MAXIMUS we want the most to be our Fortress… SDCC with sword, fancy paint, and very Fortress looking Cerebro (and very hard/expensive to get if you aren’t at SDCC or know someone going), the regular HASBRO release; without sword, and with REBIRTH accurate Cerebros, which should be a little more plentiful but will probably be hard like Metroplex to find locally at retail (but not harder than SDCC or TT), or the general release Takara Tomy Fort Max with no sword that we know of—except 100 lucky folks in China, and a HEADMASTERS accurate Fortress looking Cerebros. As before with Metroplex, there may still be more versions coming in the Asian market for different conventions that are not yet announced.

Transformers News: Twincast/Podcast Episode #148: "And Rom The Space Knight"

You’d think this would be enough, but nope, we finally delve into a topic led by Counterpunch that breaches the world of packages… Transformers toy packages that is. The best? The worst? What in packaging attracts you? What turns you off? What packages do you keep or do you just throw it all away?

Transformers News: Twincast/Podcast Episode #148: "And Rom The Space Knight"

Transformers News: Twincast/Podcast Episode #148: "And Rom The Space Knight"


We end this jam session with some bragging about our BEST most recent purchases that are at least 10 years old, well that’s how it starts anyway…


Thanks for joining us brothers and sisters of the spark. Look forward to you giving us some righteous feedback. 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!

The Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast returns with Episode 0. That's right, this special edition podcast is a pilot for a new concept, the Mainframes podcast, focusing purely on the world of Transformers comics in an in-depth way. The globe spanning crew of Twincast / Podcast host Scotty P, comics expert and t-shirt guru Mr. Starscream, and Seibertron.com's very own News Administrator Dr. Va'al look to start this new project out with a bang by diving deep into More Than Meets The Eye Issue #53 from IDW Publishing.

Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields" 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.

Things get going with the first pages of setup, with Ratchet and Velocity setting the stage for the events to come. The call backs go way, way back and the crew takes some time to reflect on the world-building that's taken place.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"
Got his hands back, but can't decide on a head crest look yet.


More catching up comes next as we take a look into what Brainstorm and some others are up to. Friendship takes center stage, with some of the Lost Light's cast coming closer together while others are set to depart on a different adventure.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"
Well of course we are, podcasting is fun!


The first round of massive speculation takes over next. Are the missing glasses pointing to something? Or is regular cleaning of the optic sensors just good hygiene?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"
Just call me "LadiesMan217"


The big reveal of big reveals surrounding a certain character gets brought up as we proceed through the events of the issue. Years of plot threads collide, with yet more speculation about what it all means to events past and future.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"
Look, I'm not giving it away in a thumbnail in the middle of a news post, ok?


After the scene shifts, it's time to pick up with our villains and take stock of the odds against our heroes. Is there any chance? No. They have tanks with Decepticon symbols on them. Nothing else screams "Hopeless" like freaking tanks with Decepticon symbols on them.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"
That guy on the right's got quite a plan.


Mr. Starscream then leads the way as we all ponder exactly who could have brought back the evil Overlord, and what their intentions possibly could have been. Get ready to bounce back to the Season 1 finale as we analyze what it might all mean.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"
A penchant for Roman sculpture, perhaps?


Robot romance and hyperactivity come up next, with a two page spread leading to deep conversations about behavior and emotion. Tune in as we look at everyone's favorite clockmaker get bored, and everyone's favorite purple former-Decepticon get romantic.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"
All over your guns because they are guns and he needs them.


Megatron had to come up at some point, as we take a look at his tale of redemption and try to relate it back to other themes such as addiction. Also: is there actually something physically wrong with him, or is it all a physical manifestation of a disease of the mind?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"
Surprisingly, no additional uppercut required this time.


We close the show with a discussion about where More Than Meets The Eye stands in the pantheon of Transformers comic history, and then we take some of your questions sent in on social media.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"
Will anyone take a 'stand' on this topic?


We hope you enjoyed this "pilot" episode of potential Twincast / Podcast spin-off Mainframes, and be sure to listen towards the end of the episode to hear how to help make more episodes a reality! We won't get to make more of this type of show if you don't tell us you want it, so please, let us know if you do.

The Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast comes at you once again with host Scotty P, who's joined by Twincast regulars Megatronus, Seibertron, and RodimusConvoy13 for a long Saturday night hang out as we digest the Tokyo Toy Show and much, much more.

Episode #146 “Happy Accidents“ 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.

Tokyo Toy Show just happened, and many new toys from Takara Tomy were revealed. The cast takes a look at all the latest, such as Ginrai, Unite Warriors Lynx Master, Ratchet, and more. New toy time even manages to leave out Thrust, because there just might be some other Masterpiece news to turn to...

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #146 "Happy Accidents"
Sir Not Appearing In This Episode


That's right, Masterpiece Cheetor has been revealed! This upcoming cat has, so far, blown us away, with a supremely show accurate look and a transformation that we take quite awhile trying to figure out. The only thing for sure is that the release of this kitty can't come fast enough, especially when we start thinking about the Universe version and the fun-but-dated Beast Wars original.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #146 "Happy Accidents"
Ultra Gear!


Beast Wars keeps on grabbing attention with the ongoing re-watch of Season 1 continuing full steam ahead. After an extremely brief look at Dinobot clones in episode 14, the birth of Airazor in Episode 15 takes over. The spark is strong with this one, as Rhinox takes us along into actual plot, suspense, excitement, and world building.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #146 "Happy Accidents"
:Phew: This is where it starts to get good.


The two part episode "The Trigger" comes next, and the crew analyzes the continued world building, character, and plot progressions brought about by this well loved pair of episodes. Seibertron does join us at this point as well, and we jump back to some of the earlier topics once again before coming back around full circle to Beast Wars.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #146 "Happy Accidents"
Before that smooth criminal Silverbolt showed up, she almost won it all.


With Beast Wars Tuesdays about to take over Seibertron this summer, we look at both the recent new galleries for Magnaboss, and look back at some of our favorite import beast toys. Are they all going to be the weird molds, or does a repaint or two manage to make its way into our superlatives?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #146 "Happy Accidents"
Maximals hate him! Wait until you see why when he does his one weird trick for natural Predacon domination.


The show changes gears at this point and takes a look at one of the more controversial recent developments in the world of Transformers. Much has been made about the Revolution coming our way - what does the Twincast make of these developments? Are we pleased as punch, or ready to punch a wall?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #146 "Happy Accidents"
But really, does M.A.S.K. sell the gas to themselves?


The shared universe concept looks to be upcoming for the Michael Bay directed Transformers live action movie franchise as well, with ROM the Space Knight looking to be a key piece. Get a short history lesson on ROM as we continue on our lengthy speculation and discussion about our hopes, fears, and dreams with the potential of a universe featuring robots, more robots, little guys, transforming vehicles, and a Real American Hero.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #146 "Happy Accidents"
You'll still never get this toy :(


The possibilities of fun new characters is endless, and with Club Ramjet arriving this week to Collectors' Club members as well, the cast thinks about what characters from ~ '99-'07 most need some updates. Whether it's updated fiction, a deeper backstory, a new toy, or some combination of these, tune in to hear who and what we'd like to see get the spotlight.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #146 "Happy Accidents"
And then Scotty doesn't pick something from UT, and someone leaves to check his pulse.


An interlude into the world of Takara Tomy's Transformers Adventure line follows, with Scotty and Seibertron waxing poetic about this amazingly fun toy line. New stuff like Crazybolt and Mini-cons everywhere take center stage as we just hang out and talk about fun toys for awhile. Will you be looking more into this line after listening?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #146 "Happy Accidents"
Illumination through acceleration! And fun.


RodimusConvoy13 saves the day by reminding The Worst Host Ever that the classic 1986 Transformers movie will see a long-awaited release on Blu-Ray disc in the United States this fall. From the great cover, to why this kind of upgrade is significant, to other animated movies on the format, we cover all the bases on this truly good news. Also, find out what Food Network, Sharkticons, and mean tweets have to do with this movie finally coming back out again the beers really, really kick in as it gets quite late on a Saturday night.

The Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast returns with all the Mayhem of May. Join Counterpunch, RodimusConvoy13, Rotorstorm, and Scotty P for an episode filled with laughs, drafts, and even a giraffe?

Episode #145 “May Mayhem“ 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.

The ongoing Beast Wars re-watch kicks off the show as the cast takes a look at Episodes 12 and 13 of the first season. "Victory" brings us full blown cartoon villain plans gone awry, as no Predacon could ever predict a gorilla with a jetpack coming to save the day. Even viewers could never predict a ship crash landing from right where it took off. We take a look at "Dark Designs" as well, featuring Tankor.

If this gets you in the Beast Wars mood, why not travel back to 2014 and check out the end of Twincast / Podcast Episode 101 where Jon 3.0 and Scotty P got a few minutes to talk with Garry Chalk, voice of Optimus Primal!

With summertime upon us, and most of the major sports in the US winding down, it can only mean one thing: it's about to be draft season! (Well, and baseball season if you like afternoon naps.)

To honor the 20th anniversary of Beast Wars, we proudly present the first ever Twincast character draft. Each podcaster gets three rounds to assemble a team. You'll have to tune in to find out if there were any surprise picks at the top, league-shattering trades, and if Tom Brady somehow managed to cheat to win this too.

I just don't think the Browns are going to be any better with these animals running the farm.


This week also yielded two brand new Transformers comics from IDW Publishing. The cast starts their look at these books with the next chapter in "All Hail Optimus", with The Transformers #53

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #145 "May Mayhem"
Or at the least, some fans' devotion to this book.


The Counterpunching of recent Transformers comics fiction continues as the cast takes a decidedly critical lens to the pages of More Than Meets The Eye #53. Wipe off the afterglow of all those emotions and prepare for literary critique as the pacing of the "Dying of the Light" arc is called into question.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #145 "May Mayhem"
When Counterpunch tells you what he thinks of this issue.


Sometimes you need some music for when you're reading those comics, and some other times you just want to jam out to the tunes from over the years that remind you of your favorite hobby. With the recent release of "Roll Out", Hasbro and Sony Music want you to do just that. But does this experiment in cross-medium marketing work out, or are we left yearning for more? Spoiler: We're left yearning, it's actually really bland.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #145 "May Mayhem"
See those eyes? There's no soul there either.


We keep up the music discussion a little bit longer and think of how we'd give Transformers media a soundtrack of our own. This conversation goes in lots of different directions, including some mention of our favorite Transformers AMVs (Anime Music Videos) from Youtube.

Be sure to us a link to your favorite Transformers AMV, or to what your "soundtrack" for Transformers sounds like by replying to this thread!

Crawling in his skin.


May Mayhem descends upon the show, with in-hand impressions of Combiner Wars Victorion at the ready. In addition to the cast's thoughts about this new fan-built combiner, you can listen as yours truly is as dense as can be in trying to figure out how to fix Pyra Magna.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #145 "May Mayhem"
Leave a piece out and she'll call you a diode-blowing dimwit. If you're into that sort of thing.


But wait, has May Mayhem transformed all on its own? Has it instead become Halloween Havoc? For most of us, it sure looks that way, but at least there's Seibertron.com's gallery of Combiner Wars Deluxe Groove to tide us all over in the meantime.

See you this fall, suckers!


Black Tracks, aka "Loud Pedal" is the next entry in the Transformers Masterpiece series headed our way this summer. Find out if we're looking forward to this repaint and retooling of Masterpiece Tracks and how we think this release measures up to previous Tokyo Toy Show exclusives such as Masterpiece Tigertrack.

Plus don't forget that you can walk down memory lane to look at the reissue version of Black Tracks, the inspiration for Loud Pedal right here on Seibertron.com.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #145 "May Mayhem"
Ready to get loud and shout out for more May Mayhem!


With Robots in Disguise Season 2 having wrapped up a couple weeks ago, the cast takes a short look at the progression of the show from Season 1 to now. Plus, we consider which characters from the cast of the show could make cool toys for the Transformers: Generations line, like Lockdown and Lugnut once did themselves.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #145 "May Mayhem"
More RID Decepticons is just a good thing regardless.


One more segment closes out the show, as we get Counterpunched into doing bragging rights. Find out which treasures we recently picked up - they may not be what you expect!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #145 "May Mayhem"
Like Colorforms, but not.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host Megatronus, prodigal host Counterpunch, and one-time host RodimusConvoy13 - listen in as we discuss the latest (with perhaps a lag of 5 days) news, toys, and more.

Episode #144 "Don't Touch That Dial" 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 warm up with some casual chat about Optimus & Me, an editorial piece about an immigrant girl finding a role model and social shield in your hero and mine, Optimus Prime. None of the cast members were little girls, unfortunately, so we discuss where we found meaning in the original 'toon. Megatronus likes Megatron. Go figure.

Sometimes, we can all use a hand. A giant, robot hand.


Back to the 90s we go. That's right, it's time for another segment dedicated to re-watching Beast Wars episodes. We take a quick look at episodes 9, 10, & 11, wherein Rattrap saves the day, Optimus goes full Primal, and no one goes home.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #144: "Don't Touch That Dial"
Beast Wars never gets old.


As we discuss MP Optimus Primal and rumors of an upcoming MP Cheetor, we decide it's prime time for SureShot18's query: "With the possibility of the MP Beast Wars line continuing and the disappointment on the boards in Cheetor maybe being the next one, what would your ideal MP Beast Wars release schedule be for the Season 1 characters?"

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #144: "Don't Touch That Dial"
No hairy cat butts.


Speaking of Masterpiece, a certain red fire truck has been confirmed. MP Inferno will becoming to quench a fire near you, or maybe just keep Red Alert from going bonkers again. What does the cast think of this latest entry in the ever-growing money-making MP machine?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #144: "Don't Touch That Dial"
He's ash grey! Get it!? Get it??? Sigh.


We get into some comic talk: Sins of the Wreckers #4, The Transformers #52, and More Than Meets The Eye #52 are on the chopping block. There's a lot to discuss in each arcs' penultimate issue, and you'll just have to tune in to get it all. In the meantime, we bring you this moment, by Rodimus:

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #144: "Don't Touch That Dial"
Buuuuuuurrrrn.


Generation is up next, and we start with Unite Warriors Sky Reign. Rumor has it this set will deviate quite a bit from the Hasbro release. WIll the Twincast double dip for that tantalizingly likely Ratchet? While you chew on that, check out these awesome comparisons of the upcoming Computron sets. There's truly something for everyone.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #144: "Don't Touch That Dial"
Never underestimate the deadly tuning fork.


We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording - or even since two recordings ago? *COUGH* Grand Galvatron *COUGH*. Sorry, just clearing my throat.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #144: "Don't Touch That Dial"

Oh Botcon, has it already been 2 weeks since we bid adieu? Wait, hang on, before we start let me grab some Advil...this Botcon hangover is a doozy.

So I'm sure you've listened to our Botcon road trip episodes already, but we decided to take another short trip down memory lane to recap our favorite and most anticipated figures that came out of the Hasbro booth this year.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #143: "The Hangover: Hascon Edition"
I vant to suck your blood


Wasting no time at all, it was discovered that Hasbro has filed a new trademark, HASCON. Hmmm, I think we all know what this means.

One of the highlights of Botcon 2016 was the one and only Judd Nelson. His Q&A panel certainly did not disappoint.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #143: "The Hangover: Hascon Edition"

Of course, to the excitement of pretty much everyone, Casino Night was brought back this year...along with.... BINGO! Some of the twincast, might have been having a bit too much fun at the auction that night.

To top things off, the twincast decided to share some of their funniest moment from the weekend.

To totally change things up, we throw you a curve ball and jump into a round of Botcon bragging rights. Tune in to hear what our favorite con finds were.

Takara decided to tease up with an image of what looks to be MP Inferno. Is this really just a tease or will there soon be a big red fire truck sitting on our MP selves?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #143: "The Hangover: Hascon Edition"

So in other news, Paramount is full steam ahead with Hasbro's cinematic universe. Do you think something like this will work with the Hasbro brands, like it does for DC and Marvel? You'll have to listen in to hear what we think.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #143: "The Hangover: Hascon Edition"

Then out of nowhere, we finally have some updates (if you can even call it that) from Machinima about their upcoming Combiner Wars cartoon.

Up next, we head on over to the boards for a listener question. Thanks Amelie!

We close out this episode with some discussion on the upcoming mobile game Transformers: Earth Wars
