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.

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

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

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

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #129 "Nick Roche Talks 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!

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

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #127 "Titans Return" ... includes interview with Hasbro from NYCC 2015
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.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #127 "Titans Return" ... includes interview with Hasbro from NYCC 2015
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.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #127 "Titans Return" ... includes interview with Hasbro from NYCC 2015
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.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #127 "Titans Return" ... includes interview with Hasbro from NYCC 2015
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.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #127 "Titans Return" ... includes interview with Hasbro from NYCC 2015
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.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #127 "Titans Return" ... includes interview with Hasbro from NYCC 2015


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.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #127 "Titans Return" ... includes interview with Hasbro from NYCC 2015
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?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #127 "Titans Return" ... includes interview with Hasbro from NYCC 2015
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.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #127 "Titans Return" ... includes interview with Hasbro from NYCC 2015
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!

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!

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

Episode #126 "False Finish" 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 Windblade #7 - you can read our own Seibertron.com review here. Listen as we discuss what we like about the issue, what we dislike about the series, and what we hope to see in the ongoing continuation of this storyline in 'Til All Are One.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #126 "False Finish"
Classic Starscream.


Next up, the next entry in the Masterpiece line: Clampdown? This out of left field redeco harks back to the eHobby exclusive, but where's Deep Cover? Also, can we get an MP Barricade? We quickly turn to a recent teaser: a new MP Hot Rod. Squeals of joy ensue.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #126 "False Finish"
He's champin' for a clampin'!


Unite Warriors Groove is the bees' knees, or Defensor's, anyways. The Twincast continues to grow excited about this release, but are we willing to pay the hefty price tag for the Takara set? Will Hasbro save us with an individual release? What about a Junkion combiner... for the win?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #126 "False Finish"
It's as if Steve McQueen were his own motorcycle.


In-hand images of Combiner Wars Bruticus are upon us. Some are impressed, and others are, well... spoiled. What does the Twincast crew think of this combiner, or better yet, the interesting molds and characters that compose him?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #126 "False Finish"
Swindle Lives!


It's time… for a LISTENER QUESTION! Seibertron member Nemesis Maximo asks: "Where are the [Classics] Dinobots? Why isn't this a thing? When will Hasbro give us this?" Great question. We might not have great answers, but as always, we have some speculation.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #126 "False Finish"
This is not what he means.


News staff member williamjames88 has a question of his own: "The general rule is that Takara has better decos, but when was it that you preferred the Hasbro version over the Takara version?" Our answers may surprise you. Listen in to hear what it's all about.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #126 "False Finish"
Not as obvious as you might think.


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

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #126 "False Finish"
Shiny and chrome.

...

Wait! Hold it! We're not quite through. Just as we finished recording, prototype images of MP Hot Rod and MP Shockwave drop, and the internet explodes. ScottyP, Megatronus, and Seibertron reconvene to give some parting thoughts on these exciting developments.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #126 "False Finish"

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

Episode #125 "Wrinkles" 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 a brief note on the location for Botcon 2016. Is the crew going? As we debate travel plans, drives, flights, and general availability, let us know: what should the theme and toys for this year's official Transformers Convention be?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #125 "Wrinkles"
Bourbon country!


The Club's Subscription Service 4.0 sign up period has come and gone, and Thunder Mayhem is upon us. That's right, the Mayhem Attack Squad's combined mode has been revealed. Is this what we wanted, or does a twinge of 'what could have been' haunt us? Listen and find out.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #125 "Wrinkles"
All hail the Thunderking!


Speaking of the Subscription Service, 3.0 Tarantulus has arrived, to the delight of the Twincast crew - check out our very own Seibertron.com galleries. This is a fun little figure, but is he a good fit? Where does he go? As always, we've got some opinions on that.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #125 "Wrinkles"
It's gonna be clamp this, clamp that. Bada-climp, bada-clamp!


Comic time: More Than Meets the Eye #44 is out about town, and we really, really liked it... which you may have suspected from ScottyP's Seibertron.com Review. This one's symbolic, folks, so tune in as we debate the merits of Megatron, guilt, and intentions. Don't miss it.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #125 "Wrinkles"
Everyone knows Anakin Skywalker is the Chose One. Pshhhh.


Starting in February 2016, it's the Year of the Monkey according to the Chinese Zodiac, and that means another year of 'Year Of' exclusives. This time, it's Air Attack Optimus Primal done up in G1 Optimus Prime colors. We have some strong thoughts on this one. Rants, ho!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #125 "Wrinkles"
Trukk not Munky


Toy-talk-minor: Starscream-Super-Mode is the latest reveal in Takara's Legends line. Plus, prototypes of Combiners Wars Brawl and Onslaught have been leaked... someone's been naughty. These are pretty cool developments, but we're more excited for the final products.
Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #125 "Wrinkles"
Thundercracker, is that you?


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

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your prodigal host Counterpunch, xRotorstormx, TigerTrack24, jON3.0, and Megatronus - listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #124 "Dogfight" 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 out with news from across the Atlantic - an intriguing, remarkably detailed fan survey run by Hasbro UK, allegedly a result of feedback Hasbro received at this year's Auto Assembly. Several members of the Twincast filled out this survey, and boy do we have thoughts. All the thoughts. Also, what's this about 3rd Party items?

Transformers News: Twincast #124: "Dogfight"
This seriously took a couple of hours.


We move on to toys, a staple of our friendly neighborhood podcast, starting with the TFCC Service 4.0 reveals. As of this writing, Bludgeon is the latest Club reveal, and Twincast reactions are mixed. Is this the Bludgeon we're yearning for, or does he leave us wanting?

Transformers News: Twincast #124: "Dogfight"
Faux-Pretender goodness.


Optimus Maximus is here! Combiner Wars wave 4, AKA the 1984 Autobots (check out our very own Seibertron galleries, here), and Battle Core Optimus (available at Amazon) are hitting shelves. Will the Twincast crew pick these up? More to the point, will these versions spur us to replace our Classics and Universe figures? It's a tough call, so tune in.

Transformers News: Twincast #124: "Dogfight"
Yea buddy... we feel ya.


We've got some interesting redecos coming out of the Transformers Adventures line, including legends class Override and Runabout, and the ever-stoic and much vaunted deluxe class Vehicon General. These sweet rides have caught the Twincast's eye, so listen in to hear what we think about these speedsters... Megatronus makes the wrong choice.

Transformers News: Twincast #124: "Dogfight"
Ugh. Dem stickers.


We've wound our way back to the MP line, and we still have some gripes about the upcoming and much debated MP-27 Ironhide. Is the Twincast crew capable of making peace with this figure? You're just a download away from finding out. Also, what's with this red Bumblebee?

Transformers News: Twincast #124: "Dogfight"
We want Cliffjumper!


We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording - or even since two recordings ago?

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

Episode #123 "Vroom Vroom Vroom" 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.

Let's jump right in with some discussion on the new Robots in Disguise Deployers and minicons that are hitting store shelves and a neat little commercial that's been spotted. We also take a stroll down memory lane with the history of the minicons. *cue music*

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #123 "Vroom Vroom Vroom"

Clash of the Transformers, sounds like a new movie or video game doesn't it? Welp, it's not! The new Toys R' Us exclusive Robots in Disguise line has started taking over shelves and we'll discuss our thoughts on these new and very interestingly colored figures.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #123 "Vroom Vroom Vroom"

Takara seems to be pulling out all the stops with their new TAV line, which coincides with Robots In Disguise. Case in point, leader Optimus Prime, what makes this figure so fun, guess you'll have to tune in.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #123 "Vroom Vroom Vroom"

Now it's time to dive into some comics. Our comic gurus take on IDW's The Transformers issue #44 which is headed to a comic store near you.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #123 "Vroom Vroom Vroom"
*kermit flail* SPOILERS!

The Transformers Collectors Club's new Transformers / G.I. Joe crossovers are finally available. Marissa Faireborn with Afterbreaker (*cough* Afterburner *cough*) and Old Snake with the advanced stealth B.A.T. duo. The twincast sits down to discuss these interesting sets and whether or not we've decided to add these to our collection. A few of us may need some convincing...

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #123 "Vroom Vroom Vroom"

Ahh glorious, shiny gold plastic. Yup, Transformers Masterpiece G2 Bumblebee has shipped and many of us have him in hand...except some of us have failed to actually open him up. SO is this a masterpiece figure that every G2 enthusiast or masterpiece collector needs? Well, you'll have to tune in to find out what we think of this little gold bug.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #123 "Vroom Vroom Vroom"

Of course, we finish up this episode with a round of bragging rights.

This episode features your prodigal host Counterpunch, Micron master ScottyP, lead vocals RodimusConvoy13, Combiner Wars junkie Megatronus, and the site owner Seibertron himself - listen in as we discuss the latest news, comics, toys, and more.

Episode #122 "The One Where Rodimus Sings" 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 a diverse agenda for this episode folks, so keep on listening or you might miss it. We start with comic-talk, specifically Transformers #43 - official Seibertron review here. The Soundwave/Cosmos dynamic is an interesting one, and we have a bit of a role reversal. What does the Twincast crew think of this installment, not to mention the promo covers?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #122 "The One Where Rodimus Sings"
Take that, peaceful dude!


We move onto the more divisive More Than Meets the Eye #43 - official Seibertron review here. Holo-matter avatars abound in this issue, and whether you dig it or not, we're all eager to get on to the next thing. Can this issue's ending catharsis redeem the long slog to the end? Listen in for some strong opinions.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #122 "The One Where Rodimus Sings"
Well... that was unexpected.


Only a select few of the Twincast crew are caught up on the RID Cartoon, and Counterpunch has one incisive question: WHY? Listen in as we compare RID to its predecessors, discuss its strengths and weaknesses... and get distracted by distribution of on-screen characters... and distribution in general.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #122 "The One Where Rodimus Sings"
Not hard to find!


We move right onto some exciting news - Transformers Subscription Service Impactor. The Twincast finally agrees on something: this guy is COOL. Well done, FubPub. Our all important head-canon and the Combiner Wars figures we want aside, you should join the discussion in Seibertron.com's brand new Collectors Club forums, right here.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #122 "The One Where Rodimus Sings"
Squeal!!!


Time for some Masterpiece talk. Word has come down (or eastward) from Japan that MP-11T Thundercracker is coming. The Twincast's reaction is mixed. Are we digging the semi-accurate cartoon deco, or are we happy with our Hasbro version from a couple years back? More importantly, where are our Coneheads?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #122 "The One Where Rodimus Sings"
He's so pretty, and silky smooth too!


So, how about that Masterpiece Ironhide? Ever since MP27 was announced at Tokyo Toy Show, the fandom has been alternating cycles of uproar and rage on this figure. The Twincast crew has their own prognosis. Listen in as we consider the future of this impending release, and agonize over this photoshop.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #122 "The One Where Rodimus Sings"
Non-heroic nonsense.


It's time… for a LISTENER QUESTION! Doctor McGrath ask "Combiner Wars Devastator looks great but where does he fit in your collection?" Devastator goes plenty of places to go... a shelf of redundancy here, a shelf of misfit toys there. There are no wrong answers, so listen in to where the Twincast will be placing this behemoth... if they do at all.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #122 "The One Where Rodimus Sings"
He's a mean, green, devastation machine!


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

San Diego Comic Con, the place where everyone wants to be, is taking place this week (July 9-12) and we've got the latest scoop on all the big surprising and those not so surprising reveals in the Transformers world BUT we decided to throw you a curve ball tonight and start off with a little discussion of non-TF SDCC news that we are each looking forward to.

Up next we'll dive into the world of transformers...

Oh, what do we have here, do my eyes deceive me? Nope, those 90's neon colors are headed our way again in the form of G2 Superion and Menasor and we couldn't be more excited!

We've also been shown this awesome spreadsheet of repeated mold use in the Combiner Wars line, just in case you were curious. :D

We fall back into some G2 chat when out of the blue, who do we have here? Live from San Diego, its Seibertron! He was able to take some time out of his busy schedule to join us to chat about everything from his first hand experiences to the overall vibe of comic con. You do not want to miss this.

While it may not come as a surprise to some, it looks like we've finally gotten an update that Toys R Us may actually be getting Masterpiece Starscream.

Up next, we discuss our thoughts on the awesome looking game from Activision Transformers: Devastation plus, our very own Seibertron was lucky enough to get a first hand walk through at SDCC.

The votes have been tallied and the fan built female combiner, Victorion, has finally been revealed. We'll discuss our first thoughts on her as well as the overall fan reaction.

At this years Botcon, we were lucky enough to get our hands on some G2 figures that never saw the light of day, General Optimus and Sgt. Hound. On top of Nacelle from the club, the twincast deviates a little to discuss what other unreleased figures we would love to see.

SDCC also gave us images of the upcoming Combiner Wars Scattershot and Betatron but the question still remains, will we actually see Computron? Guess we will have to wait and see.

With the popularity of the Combiner Wars line so far, what does this mean for the possibility of the other combiners making an appearance?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #121 "SDCC 2015"

Combiner Wars Devastator, the set we have all be clamoring to get our hands on is finally popping up in stores. Some of the twincast were lucky enough to have him in hand so you'll have to tune in to hear our thoughts on this new box set.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #121 "SDCC 2015"

There were a few things that were surprisingly absent at SDCC this year, most importantly, Titan Wars. The images were (leaked?) at Botcon this year on the Hasbro banner but with no official word, will we ever see these figures come to life? Well, just when we thought all hope was lost, an image of Titan Wars Blaster has appeared...

In other news, the twincast discusses the upcoming Combiner Wars animated series coming to us from Machinima.

Also, there was some exciting news to come out of the IDW panel at SDCC. Lets just say we will be seeing new comics galor in the coming year!

Of course, we finish up this episode with an excellent round of bragging rights. What has the Twincast picked up since last time? You'll have to tune in to find out...but here's a hint.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host ScottyP, along with Counterpunch, Megatronus, and Seibertron himself! Listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #120 "Cons" 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 begin with a very special segment, dear listeners: the Twincast chats with Colin Douglas, organizer of the upcoming TFCon in Toronto, July 17-19. Sit back and enjoy while we find out what really goes into planning the largest unofficial Transformers convention in the world.

Solid Logo.


Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to chat with us, Colin. We had a great time talking about Toronto, water slides, Peter Cullen, the genesis of TFCon Charlotte, convention exclusives, and more!

We get into some additional Con discussion, and the crew quickly settles in on SDCC exclusive Devastator. Seibertron is on-hand mid-photo shoot - the finished SDCC Devastator gallery can be found here. What does the Twincast think of this exclusive, and how does it stack up to the Generations and Unite Warriors releases? We move on to the Combiner Hunters 3-pack, Kre-O Class of '85, and whoa... things are getting expensive.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #120 "Cons"
Prepare… for chrome-termination.


We seamlessly move into Botcon and this year's exclusive figures. The collection of oddities and the Diaclone-homage-surprise-attack caught a couple Twincasters off-guard. Some are bummed, and some wish they could have been at the convention. While you listen to our joys, woes, and a spirited conversation on these Diaclone-inspired figures' factions, check out Seibertron's mini-gallery of the Botcon 2015 exclusives, right here.

Misfits.


We skillfully segue to the Windblade #4, MTMTE #42, and TF #42 comics. We're on the verge of a very cool Velocitron arc, some MTMTE set up, and great story work in The Transformers (formerly RID). What do we think of the long-game they're playing, and the worlds the writers are building? Listen in to hear the crew's thoughts about the comics' larger direction, and the greatness at the end of the tunnel.

Finally, Knock-Out takes center stage.


We digress, and talk through the hunt for Transformer Prime Megatron, Transformers Subscription Service Nacelle assembly problems, some special dealers at Botcon, and more. You like it when we riff, right?

Upside-down rear wing tips. Grrr.


We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording - or even since two recordings ago?

Also, someone got a lucky draw!
