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.

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.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #135 "The Road To Multiverse"
Something old, something new.

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!

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

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.

The B Team. (The B, uh, stands for Bruticus.)

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.

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"
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.

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?

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.

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


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. 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.

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!

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. This special episode has Scotty P and Seibertron's News Administrator Va'al chatting with IDW Transformers comic author Nick Roche.

Episode #129 "Nick Roche Talks Sins of the Wreckers" 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.

Yes, you read right, this episode is all about the upcoming Transformers: Sins of the Wreckers from IDW Comics, and the author himself joins us to talk about the book and what it might bring readers. First up though, we'll tackle the truly hard questions about hotels and hard "ch" sounds.

Every interview and article with him uses this photo and it's really old but it's a good stock photo and we have to keep the joke alive.


The conception of the book is discussed next, as we learn what might have been in the past had this book come sooner. Why is it coming out now, and how heavy do our expectations weigh on its creator? Answers lie within the show, but we can go ahead and tell you that after this segment, you'll want to pretend it was good even if it turns out otherwise.

It was always destiny.


You may have noticed some familiar characters from other IDW Transformers titles in both previews, covers, and solicitations for Sins of the Wreckers. Nick lets us know what books you should read before, what books you should read during, and even sheds some light on how toys relate to IDW's plans.

Could've left off this black paint if it weren't for con exclusives.


Stakeout, Kup, and Wreckerleaks take center stage next. Why is Stakeout involved, and what might he have been doing all this time in the background? What's a "Wreckerleak" anyway? Does this megalomaniac author have any remorse for the torture of Kup? Find out these answers, plus what Prowl may or may not know already. Whatever you do, be sure to brush up on the IDW iteration of Kup before the release of Sins of the Wreckers.

You mean you didn't read Spotlight: Kup?


It's well known already that one of the most popular human characters from IDW Transformers will make an appearance once again in Roche's upcoming mini-series. Will Verity die? Like he could tell us now if we asked! You will find out more about her involvement, as well as Roadbuster's appearance, Whirl's lack of one, and even a bit about the color work on the book set to come our way from the one and only Josh Burcham.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #129 "Nick Roche Talks Sins of the Wreckers"
All her fault? Basically, yeah. Maybe Prowl's too.


The mood of the landscapes in the book comes into play next in our discussion. Everything goes well until John Barber out-Christmases us, so then we just play sing-along with The Audio Knights Theatre and the interview ends. Only one of the things in this paragraphs actually happens, but tuning in will explain the insanity of the rest of it!

The last metroid is in captivity. The galaxy, is at peace.


The Transformers talk starts to wind down, but before we leave it, we ask Nick about his chance to write one of IDW's most complex characters: Arcee. Did he want her around for a reason, or was this just happenstance due to events in other books? Or is it really just a case of picking up Mr. Barber's daughter for the dance? Unlike the last paragraph of this post, the questions posed here do get answered in the show.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #129 "Nick Roche Talks Sins of the Wreckers"


We finish out by finding out how you can get the book, as well as who might just have given the first issue a "thumbs up" without bribery being involved.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #129 "Nick Roche Talks Sins of the Wreckers"
Fairly sure this wasn't related to this. Fairly.


Oh, and there's even a little talk of the incredible Monster Motors mini-series that Mr. Roche collaborated on with Brian Lynch. Look out world, the Motors are eyeballing heading to an independent theater in limited distribution just like one of Lynch's other art house productions.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #129 "Nick Roche Talks Sins of the Wreckers"
There are no Transformers in this book, ok?


Our very grateful "Thank You!" to Nick Roche for taking the time out and appearing on this episode with us. We hope you enjoy the show, and be sure to pick up Sins of the Wreckers from IDW Publishing this November. The Twincast will return in a couple weeks with more of our regularly scheduled programming, and you can be certain more comic book talk will follow then.

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.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. This episode features host Scotty P guiding cast members Counterpunch, Megatronus, Seibertron, and Tigertrack through the gauntlet of all the latest news and reveals from New York Comic Con 2015. Plus, Seibertron gets to sit down with the Hasbro Transformers brand team for a special Q&A session you won't want to miss!

Episode #127 "Titans Return" 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.

As you can probably infer from the episode title, Hasbro's Titans Return line shown off at NYCC 2015 is front and center for this episode. Follow along with the site's extensive galleries of the product reveals from the event as we tackle it all in some form of order, including the individual Titan Masters themselves.

My other car is a drill tank.


We also analyze the Legends class figures, including the important questions. These include questions such as "What does Rewind turn into?" and "Are these tablets also phones?" Well, ok, at least one of those gets asked along the way as we take a look at this upcoming pocket sized fun.

Next fall, the robot romance comes home


We can't forget about the Deluxe class figures of Headmasters coming our way either. Listen in to hear about the size of these guys directly from our crew that was on the ground at NYCC, as well as our other thoughts on the strategy and direction these may tell us about the line.

Does he also do stand-up in gator mode?


The Voyagers don't get left out either. Galvatron and Sentinel Prime go under the microscope, and also give us some hints about future uses of at least one of these molds. Also in this part of the show: Counterpunch goes bummin' on gimmicks.

The head can rotate here, but later?


We can't forget Blaster either, especially with his head being a homage to our program! Well, maybe it isn't, but we still have fun taking a look at this upcoming Leader class figure. Base mode speculation is also included here, as well as something else from Counterpunch: not bummin' on gimmicks.

You can change the face, but the visor remains


Nestled within our coverage of all the new toys is a special interview with the Hasbro Transformers Brand Team! Marketing Director Ben Montano, Senior Manager of Global Brand Marketing Sarah Carroll, Franchise Creative Lead David Erwin, Product Design Manager Ed Masiello, and Product Design Manager John Warden were all gracious enough to take a few minutes during their busy convention to sit down and chat with Seibertron. Listen in as he asks about Titans Return, Prime Wars, and more.

A sincere thanks again to our friends at Hasbro for taking out some valuable time to speak with us!

The show isn't all just NYCC fall out, as there is more going on in the world of Transformers to discuss, including the first two reveals from Botcon 2016's boxed set of toys. Ravage and Tarantulas are the first looks at the Dawn of the Predacus so far. Is the cast sold on the theme by these reveals, or do we still need some more convincing? Turns out we might just be a bit weary on combiners after all. Listen in for our thoughts on these first two limbs.

But what does the red Predacon symbol mean?


There was also a new Transformers video game released last week, and some of the cast has picked it up and started to dive in to this new adventure. Tune in for our somewhat (though not entirely) spoiler-free review of Activision and Platinum Games' Transformers: Devastation. We even touch on some gameplay hints and tricks. Who knew there were game reviewers lurking on this show?

Get ready to go to Sunbow City


Bragging Rights come next, and with them, a long show gets longer. After that, Scotty refuses to let the show end by rambling on about who knows what for several minutes.

That's not a Transformer...


Hope you have fun with this one, we'll see you again very soon with our haphazard ramblings from TFcon weekend!
