Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host ScottyP, Megatronus, RodimusConvoy13, xRotorstormx, TigerTrack24, and Counterpunch - listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #139 “No Deviations“ 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.

The Twincast is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Beast Wars by rewatching the seminal series that rescued the brand. This time, we tackle episodes 6, 7, and 8, in which Terrorsaur goes on a power trip, and Tigatron and Blackarachnia join the cast.

So THAT'S what that's for.


After firmly deciding NOT to discuss the recent Transformers: Deviations comic (ScottyP's thoughts on the mini-series can be found here), we tackle some great listener questions.

On implementing Combiner Wars' and Titan Returns' thematic gimmicks on characters who traditionally never had them, MemphisR56 asks: "Do you feel that this trend is a welcome addition to the transformers toyline (e.g. if it means we'll see some character that otherwise would've been avoided) or that the trend is problematic for any reasons?"

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #139 "No Deviations"
A gimmick only a mother could love?


StuartMaximus asks: "Anyone know what'll come after Titan Wars? so far we've had or getting Combiner Wars & Headmasters? so if this is some sort of Prime Trilogy or something? then what's the last part gonna focus on? Action Masters? Pretenders? or maybe something else?"

We end this segment with Amelie, who asks: "At which point do you feel that over-complexity in order to achieve maximum animation model accuracy hurts a toy? Or (reversely) - are noticeable sacrifices to the robot and alt-mode acceptable if the transformation is good?"

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #139 "No Deviations"
We're calling you out.


Next, the Twincast covers TF51 and the continued Earth-centric storyline (Tigertracks' excellent Seibertron.com review can be found here). How about them humans, eh? Once you hear this topic start, you'll have to jump to the one hour and twenty three minute mark to avoid spoilers for this issue.

Prime said, with his FISTS.


We turn to an what is likely an evolving topic for many collectors: holy grails. It's been quite some time since we checked in with the Twincast to learn what, exactly, dances between the realistic and unlikely, so we get down to business.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #139 "No Deviations"
Google her at your own risk.


We polish off the episode with bragging rights - with a twist! Each Twincaster must declare their own individual "wild card" theme. Some themes are straightforward, others are out of the box. I guess you'll have to listen in to learn about our most recent acquisitions.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #139 "No Deviations"
OK, fine. Here's a hint




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.

Building on the following of Transformers: Robots in Disguise, Hasbro has partnered again with the SuperAwesome platform to release digital content with interactive, multimedia experience across the globe, as reported by Toynews-online.Biz. Find out more in the full piece below!

Hasbro will release full length episodic Transformers Robots in Disguise content on the platform every two weeks.

Following content partnerships for the My Little Pony and Littlest Pet Shop brands, Hasbro has once again teamed up with digital kids engagement platform SuperAwesome to deliver Transformers branded content.

SuperAwesome’s platform reaches over a quarter of a billion kids each month around the world and is used by hundreds of brands for safe digital advertising and branded content delivery to the under-13 audience.

As part of this campaign, Hasbro will release full length episodic Transformers Robots in Disguise content on the platform every two weeks.

Kids can also enter competitions, meet the bots, play games, download Transformers content, and choose a side in the Autobots v Decepticons battle.

The branded Transformers content will also appear on an integrated ‘Drive in Cinema’ section on the Bin Weevils virtual world, dedicated to the Transformers brand.

“As one of the most innovative companies in the toy market, we’re extremely excited to be working with Hasbro on this Transformers content partnership," said Dylan Collins, SuperAwesome CEO.

"Hasbro realise that kids need to engage with content in multiple locations and devices and this is the perfect way to achieve that objective.”

This latest activity complements the companies’ existing partnerships as Hasbro is also using SuperAwesome’s Kids Web Services platform to power its My Little Pony Friendship Club site in the UK, Italy and France.

Craig Wilkins, marketing director, Hasbro UK & Ireland, added: “Transformers has always been a hugely popular brand for kids across the country, capturing audience’s imaginations for over 30 years.

"SuperAwesome is the perfect partner to bring this exciting brand to life for an increasingly digital generation and introduce Transformers on a unique, interactive level.”
