The Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast comes at you once again with host Scotty P, who's joined by Twincast regulars Megatronus, Seibertron, and RodimusConvoy13 for a long Saturday night hang out as we digest the Tokyo Toy Show and much, much more.
Tokyo Toy Show just happened, and many new toys from Takara Tomy were revealed. The cast takes a look at all the latest, such as Ginrai, Unite Warriors Lynx Master, Ratchet, and more. New toy time even manages to leave out Thrust, because there just might be some other Masterpiece news to turn to...
Sir Not Appearing In This Episode
That's right, Masterpiece Cheetor has been revealed! This upcoming cat has, so far, blown us away, with a supremely show accurate look and a transformation that we take quite awhile trying to figure out. The only thing for sure is that the release of this kitty can't come fast enough, especially when we start thinking about the Universe version and the fun-but-dated Beast Wars original.
Beast Wars keeps on grabbing attention with the ongoing re-watch of Season 1 continuing full steam ahead. After an extremely brief look at Dinobot clones in episode 14, the birth of Airazor in Episode 15 takes over. The spark is strong with this one, as Rhinox takes us along into actual plot, suspense, excitement, and world building.
:Phew: This is where it starts to get good.
The two part episode "The Trigger" comes next, and the crew analyzes the continued world building, character, and plot progressions brought about by this well loved pair of episodes. Seibertron does join us at this point as well, and we jump back to some of the earlier topics once again before coming back around full circle to Beast Wars.
Before that smooth criminal Silverbolt showed up, she almost won it all.
With Beast Wars Tuesdays about to take over Seibertron this summer, we look at both the recent new galleries for Magnaboss, and look back at some of our favorite import beast toys. Are they all going to be the weird molds, or does a repaint or two manage to make its way into our superlatives?
Maximals hate him! Wait until you see why when he does his one weird trick for natural Predacon domination.
The show changes gears at this point and takes a look at one of the more controversial recent developments in the world of Transformers. Much has been made about the Revolution coming our way - what does the Twincast make of these developments? Are we pleased as punch, or ready to punch a wall?
But really, does M.A.S.K. sell the gas to themselves?
The shared universe concept looks to be upcoming for the Michael Bay directed Transformers live action movie franchise as well, with ROM the Space Knight looking to be a key piece. Get a short history lesson on ROM as we continue on our lengthy speculation and discussion about our hopes, fears, and dreams with the potential of a universe featuring robots, more robots, little guys, transforming vehicles, and a Real American Hero.
You'll still never get this toy
The possibilities of fun new characters is endless, and with Club Ramjet arriving this week to Collectors' Club members as well, the cast thinks about what characters from ~ '99-'07 most need some updates. Whether it's updated fiction, a deeper backstory, a new toy, or some combination of these, tune in to hear who and what we'd like to see get the spotlight.
And then Scotty doesn't pick something from UT, and someone leaves to check his pulse.
An interlude into the world of Takara Tomy's Transformers Adventure line follows, with Scotty and Seibertron waxing poetic about this amazingly fun toy line. New stuff like Crazybolt and Mini-cons everywhere take center stage as we just hang out and talk about fun toys for awhile. Will you be looking more into this line after listening?
We'll be back soon for more adventures in Transformers podcasting.
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.
A new week, another Beast Wars Tuesday! Every Tuesday, we'll be focusing our camera lens on a new set of galleries featuring vintage Transformers action figures from the Beast Wars era. Check back next Tuesday to see our next set of Beast Wars related galleries.
This week, we move swiftly into the Transmetal 2 concept and sub-line of figures, with two asymmetrically bio-cybernetic sort of animal kingdom creatures: Prowl and Scourge! Prowl, with his owl alt-mode, is shown in both the original white version as well as the later black redeco that were available in 1999. Scourge, the nightmarish locust with a paint scheme worthy of G2, and more spikes than a Bayformer is also available for your viewing pleasure.
Check out the galleries by clicking on any of the images below!
Fellow Seibertronians, we have an update to our early access Ramjet gallery, as well as a sneak peek at the upcoming TFSS 4.0 Spinister gallery, in the form of their bio cards and art. So check them out and let us know what you think in the comments below.
Fellow Seibertronians, we bring you 6 new galleries today, including: Robots In Disguise 1-Step Bisk, Ratchet, Optimus Prime, Strongarm, Sideswipe and Bumblebee. One Step Ratchet's gallery is the very first time we are seeing images of One Step Ratchet's robot mode since, until a few days ago, none of us had realized this toy even existed. It turns out that it shares similar molding with the new Strongarm, also released in this wave and seen below, but several parts have been remolded such as the chest, head, legs and top of the alt mode. These are all part of the 9th and 10th wave of the Robots in Disguise One Steps and many are new molds and new transformations with the exception of the Bumblebees and Sideswipe which share the common switchblade transformation first seen in Age of Extinction's Drift toy. As you will notice in the images below, all of these One-Steps have 5mm holes in their hands making them able to use weapons such as the upcoming new Weapon Minicons. These should all be appearing at retail soon.
While still part of the beast world of alt-modes, the latest addition to the Seibertron.com galleries lives in a crossworld of Transformers Collectors' Club Exclusives and a direct G1 redeco, as a set of figures that was supposed to be a retail exclusive, but made it into Timelines in 2008 instead!
Let your eyes float over the full Seacon team, including Nautilator, Overbite, Seawing, Skalor, Snaptrap, and Tentakil, and their combined mode Seacon Superwarrior Piranacon. The fun fact about these dangerously reused molds, is that each component is drowning in playability: they can be a robot, an aquatic monster, and a Targetmaster with their weapon mode, plus the combining mode! Surf the galleries by clicking on any of the images below.
We have newsed this figure before, you might say, as part of the Generations line inspired by the IDW Transformers comics - the theoretician and innate learner from the Lost Light Skids features all the way back here, in Alex Milne's interpretation of the character.
And yet, despite the lack of anything IDW beyond All Hail Megatron in Japanese, Takara Tomy took to their Legends line again to give LG-20 Skids the most comic-accurate paint job, replacing the light blue with a darker shade, adding black and brighter red, and some neon pink highlights! Also included in the gallery, which you can access by clicking on any of the images below, are images of the comics accompanying the figure, comparison shots and more. Check it out!
My fellow Seibertronians, lend me your listening devices. As News Admin of this thriving community, I am looking to replenish the ranks of the Blue Named Ones - what I'm after in particular is someone to help out with news related to the live action movieverse, in the run up to next year's Transformers: The Last Knight.
The actual requirements are a little different than usual, so let's proceed with order:
Knowledge of and love for the Transformers brand - Even if something isn't your cup of tea, you'll need to keep up with and hunt for any piece of news, no matter how trivial, regarding the Transformers.
Dedication to the hobby and the position - You will be a volunteer. The incentives that come with the position are what you can make of it, be it contacts, a name for yourself for your reporting and news sourcing, or previews of upcoming figures and publications.
Social media skills - The new marketing team is big on its Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter accounts. Ideally, you'd have an idea of how to easily dabble with these three, and are willing to create a new account or use your personal one for news purposes.
Must be an active member of the Seibertron.com community - You must be an active member of our community, and you must be willing to continue to post on the forums regularly after joining. Staff members of other Transformers fansites are not eligible.
Good writing skills - What it says on the tin. We are an English resource for Transformers news, and need good writing and reading skills to effectively communicate news to the fandom. Multiple varieties of English are fine, and any non-English language skill is welcome!
A clean Disciplinary board record - Having a warning doesn't preclude you from applying, but we will be looking over your board history.
Team first mentality - Remember, you will be an official part of Seibertron.com. You will have several perks that come with the job, but are speaking for Seibertron.com at all times while a member of staff.
How to apply:
If you feel like you meet all of the requirements listed above, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include name, geographical location and time zone, language skills, link to Seibertron.com profile, and a brief introduction to yourself and why you think you would make a good addition to the Seibertron.com team.
Deadline for applications is 30th June 2016 and we will not accept any more after that time.
The position comes with full News Crew privileges and a Seibertron.com staff email, and will include both a training and a test period for you to develop your skills and for us to assess your abilities. We will not turn down anyone without good reason.
Beast Wars Tuesdays begins here! Every Tuesday, we'll be focusing our camera lens on a new set of galleries featuring vintage Transformers action figures from the Beast Wars era. Check back next Tuesday to see our next set of Beast Wars related galleries.
Now onto today's topic of discussion: Seibertron is proud to bring to you galleries of Beast Wars II X-4 Magnaboss with Lio Junior, Santon and Skywarp! This version of the figure is a repaint of its Hasbro counterpart Magnaboss, which featured Ironhide, Silverbolt and Prowl as the 3 components. In this case, Santon, Skywarp and Lio Junior are repainted from their Hasbro members as the elephant, eagle and lion, respectively. Beast Wars II Magnaboss was sold by Takara back in 1998 and featured some extra paint details, among which were very badly needed robot mode head details outlined. Check out this mighty 3-member combiner down below and experience one of the most complex figures of the Beast era and let us know what you think of this Big Boss in the comments section down below. And as always stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your latest Transformers News and Galleries!
We are proud to bring to you today our latest Seibertron.com galleries, those being the club exclusive Nightbeat, Superlink SC-02 Hot Shot and SC-23 Hot Shot Fire! All 3 utilize the same energon Hot Shot mold that can powerlink to any other energon era figure. Take a gander at the gallery and let us know what you think!
We're not done yet! To accompany the launch of the Space Ape/Hasbro/Backflip real time strategy mobile game Transformers: Earth Wars, Seibertron.com has collected all of the official images from the game, including character looks, screenshots and promotional material, into a single gallery here.
This also collects the previously shown galleries for Autobots and Decepticons, and the exclusive characters. Check them all out below, and join the Seibertron alliances by installing the game!
