Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host ScottyP, Megatronus, Tigertrack, Counterpunch, and Jon3.0 - listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #132 “Watch Out For The Stinger" 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 start with Sins of the Wreckers #1 - you can read our own Seibertron.com review here. We gush over the art the story, the twists. Wreck and rule - spoilers ahead.

Hustlin'.


We have More Than Meets The Eye #47 on our minds (review here). Cyclonus and Tailgate are entangled in a plot to eliminate a fellow Lost Lighter. Will they reunite at the very moment they are farthest apart?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #132 "Watch Out For The Stinger"
Getting the band back together.


The big toy news is the announcement of Titan Class, Titans Returns Fortress Maximus. As the Twincast crew pores over the leaked images and (alleged) sales slide for Fort Max and deducts release dates and base modes, one thing seems to be clear: we will be buying it.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #132 "Watch Out For The Stinger"
Fort Max heeds the call of Hasbro's Marketing Department.


Fan Vote? Don’t mind if we do! In the tradition of Windblade and Victorian, Hasbro opened up voting for the next Titan Class figure to us, the loyal and oh-so opinionated fans. Who did the Twincast vote for?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #132 "Watch Out For The Stinger"
#VoteTrypticon


In more Titans Returns news, we have images of the upcoming Powermaster Optimus Prime, a heavy retool of Combiner Wars Leader Class Ultra Magnus (Seibertron.com Galleries can be found here). Is the Twincast impressed? Listen and find out.

Fancy Photoshop!


Another reveal: Combiner Wars G2 Bruticus, monkey arms and all. Some eagerly await his arrival… others demand G2 Defensor. Don’t worry Tigertrack, it’s coming.

Swindle Lives!


Mini-Cons, Fracture, Overload, Crazybolt… RID seems to have it all. Are these your go-to Saturday morning companions, or merely oddball additions to your TF:Prime shelves?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #132 "Watch Out For The Stinger"
Beast mode? Let’s go with ‘puking frog’.


We’re going to skip over what Counterpunch calls ‘Hipster Garbage’ and right onto to Million Publishing Dogfight and Runamuck. Tiny robots… hefty price tag. Will the Twincast crew be picking these guys up?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #132 "Watch Out For The Stinger"
Prices runamuck. That’s right, I went there.


We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #132 "Watch Out For The Stinger"
Something to be thankful for.

New Writers for Transformers 5 Script, Akiva Goldmans Moves to Other Hasbro / Paramount Projects

Via entertainment media website Deadline, we have some news regarding the Paramount project for Transformers 5 and the expanded universe led by Akiva Goldsman - who appears to have been moved from the direct writing of the script for the next movie, and will be heading a similar project for the G.I. Joe and Micronauts franchises instead. Read more on this below, and head here for the full story!

After their Akiva Goldsman-led Writers Room experiment led to at least three movie ideas to extend Transformers, Hasbro and Paramount have set Goldsman to supervise a Writers Room for their G.I. Joe movie series. And they will go the same route with Goldsman to draft ideas for the Hasbro property Micronauts, with Goldsman supervising that as well.

This change of duties means Goldsman will supervise but won’t write the next Transformers installment. Paramount now is negotiating with Writers Room participants Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (Iron Man) and Black Hawk Down scribe Ken Nolan to write the script together. That course change was cemented by Paramount, Hasbro, Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg and producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Don Murphy.

Welcome to the latest edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. This episode features your host for the evening, Counterpunch along with Megatronus, ScottyP and Rotorstorm rounding out the chat on a laid back evening. Relax, take a seat and enjoy as we discuss all the latest news, toys, comics and more in the world of Transformers.

Episode #131 "The Darkest Timeline" 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 start this episode off with some hot off the press news from the Transformers Collectors Club. With just under 5 months to go, the Botcon 2016 brochure is now available. We'll run through our thoughts on package pricing, exclusives and the events taking place in Louisville, KY next year.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #131 "The Darkest Timeline"

Of course, with the brochure now available, we can only assume registration is on the horizon...so be prepared!

Up next, MTMTE #46 was released this week along with a preview for MTMTE #47. Tune in to hear our comic aficionados break down the lastest happenings and hopes for the future storyline.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #131 "The Darkest Timeline"


After being delayed a bit, Masterpiece Tracks has finally started to arrive and many of us are anxiously awaiting this beautiful blue vette. ScottyP was lucky enough to get Tracks before the rest of the cast, so you'll have to tune in to hear his in hand thoughts on this latest MP release.

In other Masterpiece news, coming on the heels of Ironhide is none other than Ratchet.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #131 "The Darkest Timeline"


And now it's time for something a little different. Counterpunch has a special topic tonight that you surely do not want to miss. With "Classics" or Generations styled figures now being the main focus of the Transformers toy line for Hasbro's collector focused branding, are us old-timers with a decade's worth of these toys already thoroughly occupied? Within this framework, the cast also discusses the new Robots in Disguise line and our thoughts on its place in the collecting world.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #131 "The Darkest Timeline"


Moving on...let the rumor mill begin! Recently, Hasbro registered the trademarks for CybertronCon, currently the name of their Transformers convention in Asia. Does this mean anything? (No.) Is there a change to Botcon coming down the pike? (Probably not.) The Twincast has their take on this latest "development".

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #131 "The Darkest Timeline"


This episode's listener question comes from SW's Silverhammer and it has to do with some amusing knock offs. Will Dolphins fulfill their bloodlust for Transformer podcaster souls? Is Overlord and Star Saber's baby better off in the Korean box or the original Russian? What on Earth is this paragraph talking about?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #131 "The Darkest Timeline"


Of course, we close out this episode with a round of bragging rights! What have the guys (and this gal) gotten their hands on since last episode? Have I opened anything lately, and why not? You'll have to tune in to find out.

Adding to the press release we posted earlier, about Victory Hill and Hasbro teaming up in Las Vegas, the New York Times has a little more detail on what the Cybertron Con collaboration actually holds for the Transformers. Read up below, and start packing your bags - Vegas is calling!

LAS VEGAS — Batman has his bat cave. Superman has his fortress of solitude. And soon the Avengers and a team of Transformers will call a corner on the Las Vegas Strip home.

Treasure Island casino-hotel has leased 28,000 square feet above a CVS drugstore to Victory Hill Exhibitions to create immersive displays dedicated to the pop-culture brands.

The 10-year lease includes $2 million in tenant improvements to the corner space on Las Vegas Boulevard and Spring Mountain Road.

Victory Hill ended its 18-month run at the Discovery Times Square space in New York where it offered its Marvel's Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. exhibit. The Transformers exhibit is exclusive to Las Vegas and is still in development.

The exhibit is expected to open by March or April. Company officials haven't decided on an admission price.

Hasbro's Investor day just took place and we have the presentation slides as well as the accompanying audio for everyone interested:

PDF
Audio

Out own Scotty P (podcaster extraordinaire) has his own commentary to lead fans through it:

Hasbro's Investor Day presentation was yesterday.

Some things of note:

Slide 20 (see first image below) has TF5 teaser logo (nothing exciting), and some new product called "Alt Modes" - looks like keychains or something but it's a very small image.
Slide 23 (see second image below) has the TF brand revenue (revenue to Hasbro, not retail sales to consumers! HUGE difference!) chart that we've seen in previous years updated to include the 9 months out of this year so far. Pretty good start for them.
Slide 34 talks about expanding footprint into more global markets.
Some new Kre-o product on Slide 37, but it does not look to be Transformers related. Read elsewhere it is a Chinese market exclusive line.
Slide 38 (see third image below): appears to announce Micronauts return - as a crossover with Transformers. Kind of cool considering Micronauts' roots as Microman.
I enjoyed the financial slides. Interesting bit on 61 about slightly increasing resin costs expected for 2016.
Slide 65 mentions a new e-commerce site. Direct to consumer sales or just B2B?

Poor GI Joe. Also no sign of M.A.S.K. which was on the last (I think last, maybe the one before last) Investor presentation.
