Getting back into the swing of things, Seibertron.com is proud to present the latest episode of the Twincast Podcast. As always, you can obtain our podcasts by visiting the podcast download area or directly from iTunes.

This week, a skeleton crew with your host, Counterpunch, and regular podcast members Razorclaw and Tigertracks, take a stab and some of the most pressing news in the Transformers Fandom as well as bring a close to 2011.

We start by discussing our over-Christmas hauls, including Matt's new addition and Bob's new car, as well as Mike's and Matt's bounties of new toys.

Next, we recap the 2011 holiday season, and our year-in-review article, edited by news-mod extraordinaire Blurrz.

Following that, we give you an overview on the massive set of new galleries from Ryan, including:

Finally, we get into the topic on everyone's mind: BotCon 2012 and the figure set. We discuss "The Overlord" Gigatron, SG Treadshot and the Universe connection, SG Soundwave and the Cold Slither tie in, and SG Tracks, as well as speculation on registration, which has occurred since recording.

Thanks to an ebay auction we now have robot-mode images of the upcoming BotCon exclusive Octopunch.
Octopunch is based on the G1 Pretender of the same name, as you can see he's based on the HFTD Seaspray mold, and does not feature a new head. Oh and do you notice how the faction symbol is red, which means he's Shattered Glass? Well, congrats to those who spotted that back with the first image we saw of him.
You can click any of the following images to get to the original auction.

It looks like third-party toy group iGear may be following BotCon's lead and repainting/remolding their Seaspray homage, Spray, into Octopunch. Full Metal Hero has received a digibash of Spray with G1 Octopunch's Pretender shell head and colors. Chock it up as rumor for the moment. Image mirrored below.

Some interesting images have surfaced over on ACToys that appear to be the rumored BotCon 2012 attendee only add-on figure Octopunch. As you can see in the images mirrored below the figure is a repaint of HFTD Voyager Sea Spray in G1 Octopunch's Pretender shell colors with tentacle deco. The figure is packaged the familiar convention style baggy labeled BotCon 2012. This is consistent with the list of potential BotCon 2012 figures we published earlier, which stated this figure will also feature a new head mold.

BotCon has tweeted a concept sketch for the BotCon 2012 convention exclusive Metalhawk. We got a teaser earlier this evening when BotCon 2012 registration went live and all six figures where more or less revealed. Metalhawk is a repaint of Generations Thunderwing with a new head sculpt. As you can see they are going for his Pretender shell look in robot mode. We will have to wait until next week for Metalhawk's full figure reveal, but for now this sketch gives us a good idea of what the new head sculpt will look like.
