After our monster New York Toy Fair Episode, we took a break from the toys to bring you an all Comics, TV, and Games episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! Hosted by ScottyP, this episode also includes Seibertron, Razorclaw0000, and recurring special guest star, Starscream/Paul from Ript Apparel.

Episode #138 "#^@!( Off Megatron" 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.

After a brief catch up, we took a hard look at episodes 3, 4, and 5 as part of Beast Wars 20th Anniversary Rewatch. First up, we dive into the Cheetor-heavy episode, "The Web". At least one of us on the show got to watch this episode with Kup in 1996 and will tell you all what that was like!

Next up, we dive into the - bear with us - Cheetor-heavy episode, "Equal Measures".

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #138 "#^@!( Off Megatron"


In our final Beast Wars re-watch episode for this show, we tackle the first big "world building" episode, "Chain of Command".

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #138 "#^@!( Off Megatron"


With Beast Wars tackled, we turn our attention comics - wishing the teams at IDW a heartfelt congratulations on Transformers #50 and More Than Meets The Eye #50. For the spoiler-heavy discussion to follow, we discuss some of the revelations, future directions for both comics, and reflect on how the books have evolved over the last few years. You can also check out Dr Va'al's excellent reviews of More Than Meets The Eye #50 and Transformers #50 to go with the discussion. If you're a trade-paperback only reader, you'll want to jump to about the one hour and twenty-five minute mark to avoid being completely spoiled in regards to these issues.

After this, it's the return, for a while, of toy talk as we look at the upcoming Takara Masterpiece Delta Magnus as well as recent releases Hot Rodimus and (in a bit of playing catch-up) Ironhide. Tune in to hear what we think of these latest attempts to create definitive toys of these Generation One characters.



Recent news has revealed that the Transformers Collectors' Club and Botcon, as we know them in their current forms, will end as of this year. The Twincast team shares their thoughts on these developments within.



In our last discussion of the night, we bid farewell to Transformers: Battle Tactics and welcome in Transformers: Earth Wars from Space Ape.



To close out the show, we have a few "bragging" rights. Following up on News Crew Member william-james88's Top 10 Worst Transformer Toys of All Time, the cast shares some of the guilty pleasures or shameful holdouts in their collection. What awful toys lurk on each of our shelves?

Welcome to the latest edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host, ScottyP along with Counterpunch, Megatronus, Rotorstorm, and Tigertrack! Sit down, tune in, and enjoy as we discuss all the latest news, toys, comics and more.

Episode #137 "The St. Valentine's Day Toy Fair" 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.

Even though it's Valentine's Day weekend, we are excited that Toy Fair is finally here! (P.S. thank you to all our significant others for taking a little time away to talk about Transformers for 2 hours ;) )

Our very own Seibertron is in the thick of the excitement in New York City and will be updating us throughout the night with new photos and videos. Even though over the last few months we have seen many images leaked for the upcoming Titans Return line, we are still keeping our fingers crossed for some new and exciting figures.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #137 "Toy Fair 2016"

First up, in all his glory, we'll discuss the new images of Titans Returns Fortress Maximus and the clever way in which he was revealed.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #137 "Toy Fair 2016"

(Head On, Apply Directly To the Forehead)


So many pictures, so little time! As we take a moment to paruse the amazing photos coming in to the Seibertron Galleries, the Twincast discusses some figures that were teased prior to Toy Fair but left us feeling unsatisfied, until now. Powermaster Prime, Wheelie, Blurr and Scourge made their "in the plastic" appearance and you'll have to tune in to hear what we think of these updated characters.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #137 "Toy Fair 2016"


It wouldn't be Toy Fair without the reveal of a new Platinum Edition set, right? Well this time, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of The Transformers: The Movie, this year's (K*Mart exclusive :( ) is Cyclonus, Scourge, and a Sweep! Do we need another Cyclonus? Oh wow, is that Devcon from Botcon? Listen in as we get this early impression a bit wrong.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #137 "Toy Fair 2016"


Of course, we can forget about this lovely ray of sunshine, Sentinel "Not Ginrai" Prime:

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #137 "Toy Fair 2016"

(Ouch, my eyes!)


We decide to step away from the Titans Return line and focus on another line with some pretty neat reveals, Robots in Disguise. With 2016 being the anniversary of Beast Wars, and no official announcement from Hasbro that they are planning new figures - does the newly revealed Scorponok toy show that they might just be teasing us?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #137 "Toy Fair 2016"


Another interesting Platinum set has also been revealed, a Robots in Disguise Grimlock and Bumblebee set. We're excited to have another opportunity at Takara's Battle Grimlock retooling, and of course, another Bumblebee "Supreme Mode" deco for our swarms.
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #137 "Toy Fair 2016"


Then the conversation just gets depressing, in terms of sports anyway. Panthers, you had one job.

After that short off-topic interlude, we try and figure out what is up with Windblade all of a sudden?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #137 "Toy Fair 2016"
This girl had some work done.


Thanks to Toy Fair, we've finally been shown a more accurate version of the fan built bot Victorion. Does this new image change our minds on her? Guess you'll have to tune in to find out.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #137 "Toy Fair 2016"
This one did too, and she looks a bit better.


In celebrate of the 20th Anniversary of Beast Wars, we continue on with our special segment on rewatching the television show. In this episode, we'll discuss our thoughts on episode 2, the simply titled "Beast Wars: Part 2".
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #137 "Toy Fair 2016"
Prepare to see this image in our posts a lot this year!


We finish up tonight's episode, in celebration (man another celebration? Geez) of Valentine's Day, with a question that we are sure everyone has had to deal with.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast #137 "Toy Fair 2016"
I can feel my heart beat fast-errrrrrrrr


Well, that wraps things up for another episode! We really hope you enjoyed listening.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. This episode comes at you maximized with host Scotty P, plus reliable shipmates Megatronus, RodimusConvoy13, Rotorstorm, and Tigertrack.

Episode #136 "The Gathering" 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 once again get warmed up by taking a look at some of your listener questions, and this gets started out by a pressing, sticky issue from News Staff member WilliamJames88. Hopefully this one turns out with a level orientation.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #136 "The Gathering"
Half measures


SillySpringer keeps us rolling with a question about brick and mortar retail. The cast discusses their frequent hunting spots, and we also try to take a quick look ahead at the spring retail season to come.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #136 "The Gathering"
Reveal the Shtore. For the hunting. What?


Longtime friend of the show Sabrblade offers up our next question. This question is best digested with full context, so to get that, be sure to not only check out our last episode, "The Road to Multiverse" if you haven't already, but read through the discussion that followed! Oh, and yes, you can certainly keep it going if you'd like.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #136 "The Gathering"
Fiction leads to enabling. Enabling leads to toys. Toys lead to suffering FUN.


Talk then shifts to current events a bit, and things start to get beastly with our thoughts on Sins of the Wreckers Issue 3. What mad theories await, and which of them makes a certain host's expectations of delayed gratification even more painful? Tune in to hear some fun thoughts about the series and this issue while we patiently await the conclusion.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #136 "The Gathering"
You mean you didn't read Spotlight: Springer: Origin Backstory Journey Formation? Wait a minute...


The beasts take a back seat (mostly) for just a moment, as we wrap up current events chatter by taking a look at the continuing saga of Titans Returns leaks. With Toy Fair just around the corner, what surprises may still be in store?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #136 "The Gathering"
Chokon Power! Wait a minute...


After this, it's time for a new segment: a "Pick One" throwdown! This episode's clash is between Combiner Wars Bruticus and Combiner Wars Superion, and each cast member can pick which of these they prefer and use any version to justify it. A surprisingly specific example leads to a winner, and if you'd like to go ahead and spoil it, check out the amazing Seibertron.com Gallery of the consensus pick here.

Which bot will win the Rumble and head to Wrestlemania to face HHH? Wait a minute...


DAWN OF THE RE-WATCH! For the 20th Anniversary of Beast Wars, which is now upon us, the cast embarks on the Axalon for a re-watch of the Beast Wars TV series - or at least the first episode. Join us on a march down memory lane, as we experience the first skirmish of the Beast Wars once again. Be sure to let us know your thoughts on this segment, because it might be sticking around for quite a while. If you'd like to follow along, don't forget that Shout! Factory's DVD set of the series is still available at a great price.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #136 "The Gathering"
Look, Laser Discs might be an old format, but isn't this a bit exaggerated?


The show isn't quite over after that, as we then take a gander at some of our favorite board topics from the past few weeks. Follow along as we check out each podcasters pick:

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host ScottyP, Megatronus, RodimusConvoy13, and Jon 3.0 - listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #135 “The Road To Multiverse“ 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 kick off 2016 with a couple intriguing listener questions. First, SillySpringer asks a very relevant toy-related query: Which four deluxes from Combiner Wars are the best? I want to maybe get Cyclonus and slap some random and good limbs on him.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #135 "The Road To Multiverse"
Gotta catch ‘em all!


SW’s SilverHammer blasts us with a comics question: Do you think there will be a point in the story continuity, where the transformers galactic civil war ends? I don't mean where we are now with insurgencies, but a point where there is finality in the war. Or alternatively, do you believe, or would you prefer, that the writers continue the Cybertronain civil war in perpetuity?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #135 "The Road To Multiverse"
Finality.


Next, the Twincast tackles the reintroduction of the Head, err, Titan-Masters gimmick in the Titan Returns line, notably on traditionally non-Headmaster characters. In the words of Rung: how does that make you feel?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #135 "The Road To Multiverse"
Dance, Soundwave, Dance!!!


We turn to the Robots in Disguise animated series. Season 2 looms in the distance, and the Twincast has some strong opinions on what direction certain characters, and the series as a whole, should take.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #135 "The Road To Multiverse"
Wanted: character development.


After the TFCC’s announcement of Shattered Glass Unicron in the Club comic, we thought it would be fun to ask: what do you think of the "multiverse" concept in Transformers? Chaos ensues.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #135 "The Road To Multiverse"
There can only be one!


We polish off this episode with some bragging rights. This week's theme: your most brag-worthy acquisition from the past month that is not a Generations or Masterpiece.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast, where we set a course into the new year of 2016 to navigate the pointlessly exaggerated danger of what's ahead. This episode features a packed crew, with host ScottyP being joined by regular podcast rockstars Megatronus, Counterpunch, Tigertrack24, Razorclaw0000, and recurring special guest star, Starscream/Paul from Ript Apparel. We hear if you like him on the show, you should buy a shirt from his site, but we also promise that's the only shilling that occurs involved with any of this and it's purely out of gratitude for his donation of time taken out to record.

Episode #134 “Whale Wars“ 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.

First up, we start with spoiler-heavy discussion of "Sins of the Wreckers #2", to compliment Va'al's excellent review. Watch us speculate wildly! Or, you know, just listen. That video didn't get past the site's profanity filters.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #134 "Whale Wars"
Chris Hemsworth and Stakeout need to exchange tips


Next, we continue the wild speculation with some thoughts on what we'd like to see to commemorate Beast Wars' Anniversary in 2016. Rather than predictions, we focus on our "wishful thinking" types of thoughts.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #134 "Whale Wars"
We've been here before, but do we want to go there again?


After that, we tackle a listener question from news crew member william-james88, which dovetails nicely with this analysis comparing the Hasbro and Unite Warriors Devastators:

william-james88 asks:
On your CW Devastator, do you have the tampographed Decepticon symbol on his knee upside down or upright? Which do you preffer? Would you have preffered it being upright when rotated to lock in the leg or would you have preferred it blank like the UW version?


We delve into some deeper mysteries, with faction symbol orientation through G1 and beyond. The seeker rabbit hole is deep, but thankfully we've got an expert here to help us out.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #134 "Whale Wars"
Is this doing it wrong?


Before getting into some end of year wrap up, we sit down for a roundtable discussion on the future of G1 reissues and their current popularity. Are G1 toys and media still in the spotlight?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #134 "Whale Wars"
Platinum Series - our last, best hope for Reissues?


Finally, the show wraps up with some reverse bragging rights as the cast discusses the Transformers related gifts they've given, some thoughts on holiday stock levels, and a few ideas on what's going to be awesome in 2016.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #134 "Whale Wars"
We hope so too!


A very Happy New Year to all of our listeners, we can't wait to keep bring you another great year of the show!

Episode #133 “2015 Superlatives“ 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 what rocked our 2015: toys, media, personal acquisitions... Our highlights may surprise you. But then again, you might have seen some of that big green coming.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #133 "2015 Superlatives"
That face says it all. No, I'm not talking about the kid.


Next, we switch up the format with a battery of listener questions:

Ionrac asks: if you were putting together a display, on a single, if large, shelf space (tall enough for Fort Max or Metroplex), how would you approach it?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #133 "2015 Superlatives"
We all just want to zoom cars around cities, really.


Stuartmaximus asks: are you super excited for The Force Awakens & are you going to see it on opening day?

Seibertron.com Staff Member williamjames-88 asks: with Hasbro back in the business of reissuing G1 toys, what should they get down to reissuing in the coming years?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #133 "2015 Superlatives"
Daily Double: This news-post picture addresses multiple listener questions.


We interrupt our regularly scheduled program (actually, the show segue is unusually natural!) for some holiday bragging rights. What deals did the Twincast snag this holiday season? We had our eyes on the prize this time around.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #133 "2015 Superlatives"
Trypticon: triple-changer AND tri-lingual. That's a good dino.


Unite Warriors Grand Galvatron is turning a few heads. The crazy assortment of Combiner Wars redecoes and retools is nutty, but is it attractive enough to buy? Listen to hear the Twincast's verdict on this set.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #133 "2015 Superlatives"
The comic helps, and almost makes sense!


We polish off this episode with our thoughts on the recently released Combiner Wars Combaticons. Long story short: awesome-sauce.

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.

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

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

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

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?

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.

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


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

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


A new wave of Robots in Disguise mini-cons have been revealed along with a bevy of interesting animation renders and names within the latest update for the RID smartphone app

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?

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. For your listening pleasure we have our host, ScottyP, along with "The man who finally got a deluxe of his namesake", Megatronus, and our "Two podcasters from the Great White North who couldn't make it to TFCon", xRotorstormx and RodimusConvoy13. Listen as they give you their takes on the latest and greatest in Transformers news.

Episode #130 "Retools" 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.

Starting off in the exciting world of comics, we discuss Transformers #46. Learn who is a fan of Blackrock and what we think of Uncomfortable Prime. All that plus some thoughts on the Mistress of Flame and what she represents await in our discussion of this (mostly) new release.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #130 "Retools"
A giant leap is coming, is he ready?


Transformers: Redemption comes up after that. Between some cool crossover pages, story development, and new characters, there's a lot of cool that the cast found in this new release. There's also an intense discussion on Mad Max: Fury Road, so do remember to tell Scotty why he's wrong about it in the Energon Pub by replying to this post.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #130 "Retools"
Slag? Slug? ... Don't call me Mad Max


We move on to a new masterpiece reveal: Masterpiece Ramjet! We dive right into Takara Tomy's first MP Conehead and discuss the intricacies of the head transformation, if we think he's too much like the cartoon, and cheekbones. Yes, cheekbones. You'll want to tune in for this oddly complex tale of speculative reverse engineering.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #130 "Retools"
You wanna say something about my face to my face??


Next up is Combiner Wars Wave 4, specifically, concerns about Wheeljack. Is a Transformers/Powder crossover coming this many years after that movie you forgot about? No, but it's fun to kid around with this (we hope) early test shot.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #130 "Retools"
Ha ha, not enough of the alloy! Wheeljack is still going to be infected with the Hate Plague.


That's not all for re-painted and re-tooled toy reveals, as we next look at e-Hobby Legends Deadlock. Do we like him? Is he purty? Yes. Yes.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #130 "Retools"
Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the sword and the guns.


Had enough toy talk yet? Good! Because there's more. The conversation moves on to the Transformers Collectors' Club Subscription Service Krok and the bonus "mystery" figure, which we completely spoil if you've somehow managed to avoid that reveal so far. What works about this figure? What doesn't? What is the mysterious origin of Shakar? Do we still care now that we know?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #130 "Retools"
One killer Krok.


Botcon 2016 is next, and we give our thoughts on the soon to be revealed (as of the recording) Sea Clamp. Do we think he's the best torso bot to use? We also share our feelings on his boxset-mate Cicadacon. Tune in before the crippling blow of reality swayed our opinions in other directions (or not).

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #130 "Retools"
Sea Clamp owes me Lobster Money.


After the toy talk we move on to a listener question. WilliamJames88 asks how we feel when a less expensive, possibly better version of a character is released after we've gotten the more expensive exclusive. We tell you what to think!-- oh wait, what we think. Sorry.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #130 "Retools"
Will you still love me tomorrow?


We finish out with some bragging rights. What did we get? Were they Transformers? Of course they were!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #130 "Retools"
Am I blue? Or am I blue?


With that we wrap up another episode, and we'll see you all again in a couple weeks.

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!

Episode #128 "TFcon USA 2015" 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.

On the Saturday night of TFcon USA 2015 in Charlotte, NC, a group gathered in Scotty P's hotel room for a special group activity: podcast recording.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #128 "TFcon USA 2015"
Not this. Podcasting.


For this one, we're huddled around an ottoman with a small recorder, enjoying adult beverages and looking back on our first couple days of the show. This is your warning if you don't enjoy these types of episodes!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #128 "TFcon USA 2015"
Your Twincast crew! Well, most of it.


We'll talk about the show's venue, the dealer room, as well as how the show compared to other Transformers conventions that we'd been to over the years. Plus, hear about the first-time convention experience from Megatronus and Mooncake623.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #128 "TFcon USA 2015"
The smile says it all.


In the second half of the show, we've inserted a copy of the audio from the TFcon USA multi-podcast panel. On this panel, Seibertron's own Scotty P talks with other panelists Jeremy from the Transmissions Podcast, Bobby Skullface from Shattered Cast Uncut, and Rob Springer and Diecast from Radio Free Cybertron. Tune in as we chat briefly about the convention, the toys there, and the world of Transformers podcasting. This one also didn't have a strict agenda, so the free-form conversation rolls on!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #128 "TFcon USA 2015"
How many more Scotty P jokes will go unlaughed at? Many.


Stay tuned very, very soon for another special episode of the Twincast / Podcast.
