After yesterday's Optimus Prime bio from the upcoming Activision Transformers Devastation game, the Facebook page has also uploaded a gameplay trailer featuring the Autobot leader! You can take a look at the embedded video below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub - does it scratch your G1 itch? Or are you still doubtful about the game?
In Transformers: Devastation, Optimus Prime mixes speed with power. And that Energon Axe makes all the Decepticons nervous.
Fellow Seibertronian o.supreme has let us know that it looks like streaming service Netflix has finished uploading the last of season 3 of Transformers: Rescue Bots, meaning that the entire run so far of 78 (!) episodes is now available to watch on demand!
(With the caveat that Sabrblade points out, of two Season 2 episodes having been listed under Season 3, instead. But if that doesn't bother you, binge-watch away!)
Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! 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?
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
He's a mean, green, devastation machine!
We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording?
Minus his armada.
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.

Fellow Seibertron.com user SlyTF1 has alerted us to a new article discussing the goings-on at Paramount, and specifically in the writers room for the extended Transformers universe, as IGN caught up with Daredevil's Steven DeKnight on the current situation with Akiva Goldsman's project, and the surprise visit from Steven Spielberg! Read more below, and head here for the full piece.
Taking a page from how a TV show is run, Paramount assembled a big group of experienced writers to help chart out the future of the Transformers film series, under the guidance of Akiva Goldsman, as the studio looks to build more of an expanded Transformers movie universe. I asked DeKnight what the experience was like taking that TV dynamic and using it in film, and he had an enthusiastic reply.
“It's that wonderful thing where features are now taking a page from television and getting people together to really try and plan things out. It was a wonderful experience. Akiva Goldsman was fantastic and Jeff Pinkner, who's co-writing the fifth [Transformers] movie with him was phenomenal. Zak Penn... It was just a room full of brilliant, funny, amazing people. And we spent two and a half weeks in physically the best writers room I've ever seen in my life. Paramount pulled out all the stops. It was phenomenal! We laughed and joked and told stories and plotted out...”
