Join Mike (Counterpunch), Ryan (Seibertron), Scotty (Scotty P), and Matt (Tigertrack) as they flex collecting muscles to try to acquire the latest and greatest Transformers toys.

In this episode, Ryan and Mike go in to collector nirvana describing what it's like owning the super-awesome collectible that so many now have their hands on ... Metroplex.
A little ol' convention called WONDERFEST happened, and there was some big yellow plasticy Scorponok thing shown on display next to G1 Fortress Maximus. The crew speculate, and wonder what does it actually mean? And then we talk dolls... like CM Corps new addition in Spike and Daniel Exosuits.
Then there's the hunting. Beast Hunters 'Rise of the Predacons' Exclusives, Target resets, Generations comic packs, and more seemed to magically appear all at the same time. Is Target the most consistent retailer for releasing similar toys at similar times in so many stores?
Not only are Beast Hunters toys making news, but the Beast Hunters cartoon showed its final episode, and we share a few thoughts on its finality, Bumblebee speaking, and what comes next for Transformers cartoons.
Believe it or not, the Twincast also had a few moments to talk about the SDCC TF/GI JOE Exclusive Set and how separate entities are having trouble playing nice when it comes to a certain white jet with black and red details, and super-cool fast pack jet engines.

Saturday night at BotCon unfolded like many previous BotCon Saturday nights. After the traditional dinner reception, many BotCon attendees partook in a fun Casino night accompanied by drinks and other entertainment. Many of us headed to Town & Country's Charlie's bar afterwards. Once the bar closed down, we thought it'd be fun to do an impromptu Seibertron.com Twincast/Podcast recording because, you know, that's always a good idea after a night of drinking and tomfoolery.
Many regular Seibertronian BotCon attendees were present ... some of the roster includes Joevill, El Duque, ScottyP, his girlfriend Candace, Rated X, Flux Convoy, Claire, Prime Evil, Mr and Mrs Delicon, and many others. If you were there, please feel free to join our conversation to share your thoughts about the first ever official SEIBERSOCIAL!
A word of caution about this episode ... it's a pretty raw episode. It was recorded around midnight on a Saturday night at BotCon after the bar closed. We were all having a really good time. During the episode, there are some ramblings, repeated questions, etc. And we all continued on with having fun while we were recording. It's a light hearted episode that some of you will find very entertaining while some of you will find it very annoying. It's just a carefree episode with a group of Seibertronians recording a moment in time at BotCon 2013. You've been officially warned!

Note from Ryan: This episode was recorded on July 12th, almost a week before SDCC. The craziness and 16+ hour days of Comic-Con prevented this episode from being posted last week and earlier this week. Without further ado, here's Episode #71: "SDCC 2013 Preview" ...
"It's Summertime in northern Michigan..." and everywhere else, even though Kid Rock only cared about the latter, Ryan and Matt discuss vacations, trolls, and yoopers, and then the group gets SERIOUS!

Beat the summer heat and listen to these chaps talk Transformers as the Eve of Sand Diego Comic-Con is upon us.

This iteration of the Twincast talks about the Transformers exclusive toys that are to be available to purchase at SDCC and hopefully, on HASBRO TOY SHOP early next week. We focus mainly on the insanely shiny and gigantic Metroplex; but also talk about 'the pales in comparison, but still nice Shockwave's Lab'; and the "not even Action Masters" vinyl figures set. In case you missed it, Ryan also posted galleries here on Seibertron of all 3 exclusives, including quite a few comparison Metroplex pics between the SDCC Exclusive and the retail HASBRO release. The debate is on as to what version of versions YOU MUST OWN (or not, no pressure)!
You can also hear our thoughts on the Takara Tomy SENATOR RATBAT Generations toy, Toys R Us' Masterpiece Pre-order eBay Auction Oopsies, the newest toys like TT vs. HASBRO Hoist, TT vs. HASBRO Blitzwing and Springer, the new Construct-a-bots Blitzwing in-hand review by Scotty P, and much, much, more!
This week on the Twincast podcast live from parking lot of the Circle K, we join a dynamic uno and his partner as they discuss recent Transformers related stuff. Air guitars ready? "Excellent!" Let's hope we don't run into any evil robot us's. (cue riff)

Listen to host Counterpunch S. Preston Esquire and his sidekick tigertracks24 Theodore Logan as they jam on a WILD STALLION something near-and-dear to ol' tt24's heart, Masterpiece Tigertrack(s), as well as the most recent developments about Transformers 4 vehicles and setting. What results is a bit of love for Lamborghini's and a geography lesson...
Also the awesome pair with the great hair shares thoughts about other toy news like the SDCC Exclusive GI JOE Transformers Crossover Set ("Whoa..."), the Beast Hunters exclusives ("Heinous..."), and Generations Trailcutter ("Station!").
Our trip in the phone booth concludes with some Botcon talk including a final wrap on the exclusive figures set and it's 'totally awesome' box and the guest lineups, which then transitions to some bragadocious bragging rights when the twosome becomes a threesome and ends the jam session as the wily Jon 'RUFUS' 3.0 pops in just in time to say, "Adieu!"
