Let's put it this way: this is not news. But it is entertaining, enlightening, fits easily with our recent contributor piece of the Top Ten G1 Episodes and the existence and presence on Seibertron.com for many adult collectors. From the YouTube channel series Kids React.., and via fellow user Sabrblade, we have a six minute clip of kids no older than 12 being shown the G1 Transformers for the first time, and comparisons with some of the Paramount/Michael Bay designs and some facts from the franchise.

Some of the kids make great points about the sellable value of the repurposing of the franchise, its appeal to multiple generations, and the effect it could have on the different generations - plus this one: "I think they [G1] could still be cool today, but now that we've been exposed to the movies.. the movies look so different, and that's what we're used to!"

Warning: It'll make a lot of people feel old. For real.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your prodigal host Counterpunch, micron master ScottyP, pinball wizard xRotorstormx, and combiner wars junkie Megatronus - listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #117 "Block Town" 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've got toys on the brain tonight folks, and we get started with a few of this year's Club exclusive figures. A couple Twincasters have the first Subscription Service 3.0 figure, Carzap, a few others this year's 'free' Lio Convoy, and yet another the Club Store exclusive Nova Prime. Are these worth your hard earned dollar? While we assess paints apps, heads, and what we're looking forward to, check out Seibertron's galleries of Nova Prime, here.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Gotta watch your back in Block Town.


Time for some main-line talk, starting with Combiner Wars Leader Thundercracker. In-hand images have been piling up, and this figure is in stock at Hasbro Toy Shop and site-sponsor BBTS. Is the Twincast excited for a comic-accurate figure, or resigned to an out-of-scale one? We discuss what could have been, and how we come to terms with what is - it's all quite zen, actually.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Starscream: not far behind.


Seibertron's got brand spanking new galleries of Legions Class Cliffjumper, Skywarp, and Ultra Magnus up and running, and some in our ranks want to know what all the Ultra Magnus fuss is about. Listen in as the rest of the crew discusses these neat little finds - probably coming to a Dollar Store or Big Lots near you!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Goodbye Minimus Ambus… Hello Ultra Magnus!


We move onto something BIG - San Diego Comic Con's exclusive (oh, that word) Titan Devastator. Some of the Twincast crew is entranced by dat box and others by dat purple chrome, but is dat enough to make the crew pull the trigger? Are we still hung up on our original assessments of this set, or are we coming around? It's a tough call, so tune in.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Prepare… for extermination.


The Twincast crew gets down to some serious business: Unite Warriors Defensor with deluxe Groove. The Twincast discusses the intrigue of these figures and their exclusive molds and decos. With wave 3 of Combiner Wars appearing at retail, will the crew be picking up Unite Warriors Defensor? What's it mean to be exclusive anyway? Well, you'll just have to listen to find out.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Groooooovy


The time is ripe… for a LISTENER QUESTION! News staff member williamjames88's thoughtful query initiates a lively discussion about buying at retail vs online. In an age of increased convenience and internet dominance, what motivates some of the crew to venture out into the wild of brick and mortar retail? Conversely, what keeps some crew-members married to eCommerce? There are no wrong answers, but some revealing insights into Twincast members' nostalgia, collecting philosophy, and life commitments. Listen in to hear what it's all about.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Old toys, new channels.


We get on to some unlikely art-talk with the release of five very cool Fembot concepts by IDW artist Alex Milne. The popularity of female Transformers amongst the fandom, and the demand for more toys of such characters, has been an encouraging trend. Will we see these characters take flight in toy or comic form? As always, the Twincast crew has some opinions on that.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Let me stand next 'toy' your fire…


We touched on SDCC before, so you know we got to talk Botcon! The convention is just a month away, and we've caught wind of some rumored Waspinator-based army builders. Which of these taste-the-rainbow decos make sense, and which don't? Does the Twincast crew even care if these figures fit in, or are we simply excited for some Waspinator-related fun?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
Prepare… for buzz-termination. See what I did there?


We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording - or even since two recordings ago?
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #117 "Block Town"
This episode, there are some clear winners.


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!

Not on the show to give your take? Probably not, so don't forget to keep the discussion going on the Seibertron.com Energon Pub Forums by simply replying to this post!

Got a question for the Twincast? We take all of them, we just don't take them all seriously! Leave a question in the Ask the Twincast thread and, if it makes the cut, it may get read and answered on the show.

Rumour: Paramount Transformers Expanded Universe - Transformers One Prequel on Cybertron

From the same source as the last big piece of news for the Paramount Transformers franchise, Deadline, we have a very rumorous rumour, and please take it as such until there is any confirmation whatsoever. It appears that the current writers (post-Edgar Wright) for Marvel's upcoming Ant-Man movie, Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, have joined the writers' room for the expanded universe - and may be behind a prequel project by the name of Transformers One - set on Cybertron. Read more here or below, and sound off your speculations on this hearsay piece of information!

Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari, who spent half a year doing the production rewriting on Marvel’s Ant-Man, have become the latest to join the Writer’s Room that Paramount Pictures and director Michael Bay have organized to hatch sequels, prequels and spinoffs on their billion dollar Transformers franchise. I’m hearing that one of the ideas in the works has a working title of Transformers One, and that it is more or less an origins story that takes place on Cybertron, the planet where the good guy and bad guy robots hail from. Those talks originated with rights holder Hasbro. I’d also heard that this might be an animated feature, but that Barrer & Ferrari are also going to the writer’s room with the expectation they’ll write a live action Transformers movie, as well. Paramount insiders said that they haven’t gotten that far on the specific projects, but I am told this is the plan. A Cybertron movie sounds like fertile ground for a feature, to me.

Fellow Transformers fan and Seibertron.com member fenrir72 has spotted a tweet by Toys'R'Us, revealing another characteristic for the upcoming fan-built combiner Victorion (as revealed here).

Check out the teaser image below.

On a day like this, as we approach the end of the virtually unnoticed May Mayhem for Hasbro Transformers, the latter's official Facebook page has posted two really quite enjoyable promotional posters for the main faces of the Combiner Wars line: Stunticon combiner Menasor and Aerialbot counterpart Superion, with the 'Courage is Stronger When Combined' tagline!

Check out the mirrored images below, notified by fellow Seibertron.com member MaverickPrime, and make sure to take a look at our very own galleries for the two teams here and here. Meanwhile, I will be waiting for Hasbro to credit their artists...

Courtesy of our fellow Seibertronian from Costa Rica Kaliaticus, we have all the details of the new Rovio Angry Birds Transformers mobile device game update! And if you don't believe the write up, you can check out the screenshots that they sent us, mirrored below.

Hey guys! It's your costarrican friend Carlos, aka Kaliaticus, with Angry Birds news. I just installed the latest update, and it's pretty badass. Now you can level your Autobirds and Deceptihogs to level 15. Also, what we've been waiting: you can unlock Arcee and Airachnid. It's got a new way to customize your bots and cons with "materials", but I'm not sure yet of how this works.
