Live, from New York, it's a Twincast Podcast Saturday Night! Maybe not quite live or on a Saturday, but it's still our recordings from New York City as yours truly, episode host Scotty P sat down with Seibertron and Diablien/Collecticon/Paul (of RIPT fame and an eternal Friend of Seibertron.com) to discuss the new toys and goings on from the toy industry's largest annual trade show.
Oh, and there's this matter of an interview with the Global Brand Marketing Director for Transformers, Hasbro's Jerry Jivoin!
Episode #111 "New York Toy Fair 2015" 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 hope you'll listen to the entire show, but if you'd like to skip our personal musings and get right to the interview with Mr. Jivoin, you may do so by going to 1:05:48 in the audio file.
We first tackle the big guy himself, Devastator! Now that we've seen this hugely anticipated, hugely sized toy in the flesh, are we more or less impressed? Are the individual bots something living up to expectations? We'll break down everything you ever wanted to know based on our observations, along with a bunch of facts you probably don't care about in the first part of the show.
A certain shade of green
Section something-point-something of the Autobot Code dictates that our next point of discussion is Generations Leader Class Ultra Magnus, popping right out of the pages of the IDW comic series and into our hearts. Listen in as we dissect what we saw of this latest entry into the impressive Generations series Leader Class lineup.
Duly Appointed, indeed
There were yet more cool Generations reveals such as Defensor, Cyclonus, and Legends Class figures. The customization/create-a-character aspect of Combiner Wars comes full circle with these releases. Tune in to hear our thoughts, as well as our condolences to GI Joe fans.
Totally not Onslaught even a little.
Seibertron.com is very proud to present the next segment of the show, an approximately 20 minute interview with Mr. Jerry Jivoin! You'll need to listen in to hear what he has to say about everything from Combiner Wars, more female characters, decisions on paint decos for reissue toys, the west coast dock strikes, whether these Combiners are being made in response to a certain other toy market, and even more!
Our sincere thanks to both Hasbro and Hunter PR for the opportunity to interview Mr. Jivoin on a very busy day in a very busy environment, and on basically zero notice at that! It was a blast to conduct and we hope our listeners and the fan community as a whole enjoy the information shared.
Archive image from SDCC 2012 - this is Jerry's second appearance on the Twincast
We didn't forget about the new toys from Robots in Disguise. Jazz and Sideswipe Warriors, plus lots of new Minicons will grace store shelves this fall. Find out our thoughts about the upcoming products coming out to support the cartoon show that's coming soon.
Since we're all just big kids here, we take a little bit of the show to chat about the upcoming releases for Rescue Bots. Join us as we jump on the boat and don't transform. Wait, what?
Broadside's little cousin
Loyal Subjects vinyls are about to hit their third wave and Toy Fair gave us the opportunity to get a very clear look at them for the first time. Why is Scotty so mad about the case breakdown? You'll find out, plus you'll get to hear the counterpoint which makes for a fun, lively discussion of these Action Vinyls. You can even preorder a case of this upcoming wave from our buddies at RIPT Apparel.
He can't see anything at all, but can he see why kids love Cinnamon Toast Crunch?
Toy Fair brought along far more than we could possibly cover without having a four hour show, so catch the rest as we break down our thoughts on licensed products hitting stores in the next year. Protect your home, keep your spot in a book, and try not to stab yourself with metal if you check out any of this stuff once it's available.
Small in stature, but not in character.
We finish up with an insanely elitist edition of Bragging Rights. The pictures can speak for themselves!
That wraps things up for this very special episode. We sincerely hope you enjoy this one, definitely had a blast on this end putting it together. See you in approximately two weeks as we attempt to get back on to a more "regular" show schedule between now and Botcon.
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 Seibertronian Cobotron has spotted both Robots in Disguise Warrior Drift and Optimus Prime in a Target in Omaha, NE today for $14.99. He took a picture of the Drift he purchased along with the proof of purchase. Now that these are available in stores, if you are wodnering if they are worth picking up, we recently put up galleries of the two figures and a review of Drift is also available.
It seems Genetic of TFND is up to his old tricks again, bringing us in hand shots of the third Combiner Wars Wave 2 figure Dead End! He is the final "Classic" Stunticon of the wave, and leaves only Offroad yet to be in hand. Something tells me that we'll be seeing him soon though, so while we're waiting why not have a look at Dead End's bio!
Most Decepticons would say the Autobots are doomed. Dead End is the only one who would say the same about the Decepticons. He's convinced the end of the universe is right around the corner, and he's going out with his blasters blazing. -Hasbro
Courtesy of a tip from fellow Seibertronian Supreme Convoy, we have news of a double bill being offered by the Los Angeles American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theatre, featuring the The Movie of our favourite franchise and its twin cousin: The Transformers and G.I. Joe! The screenings also features a Q&A with directors, storyboard artists and consultants - you can find more information below, and if you're in the area, buy tickets here.

Double Feature! Director & Crew Members In Person!
THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE / G.I. JOE: THE MOVIE
Presented by the American Cinematheque and Dammaged Goods
Discussion between films with TRANSFORMERS story consultant Flint Dille and G.I. JOE director Don Jurwich, story consultant Buzz Dixon and story board director Larry Houston.
THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE
1986, 84 min, USA, Dir: Nelson Shin
The hit animated television series (and action figure toy line) makes its first leap to the big screen! In the year 2005, Optimus Prime and his heroic Autobots struggle to defend their home planet Cybertron from the voracious Unicron (Orson Welles, in his final role) and defeat the evil Decepticons and their ruthless leader, Megatron. The all-star cast giving voice to these battling ’bots includes Judd Nelson, Leonard Nimoy, Robert Stack, Eric Idle, Scatman Crothers and Casey Kasem. Released between the series’ second and third seasons, THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE killed off several major characters and featured a heavy-metal soundtrack and anime style that gave it a slightly darker tone than the TV program - but it’s still intergalactic fun for kids of all ages.
G.I. JOE: THE MOVIE
1987, 93 min, Japan, USA, Dir: Don Jurwich
In this feature-length spinoff of the beloved 1980s TV show, the G.I. Joe soldiers join newest hero Flint (Don Johnson) to take on the evil forces of Cobra, whose ancient Lovecraftian history is revealed as a new enemy, Serpentor, enters the scene. Featuring many of the same cast members as THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE, with Wally Burr once again directing the voices of Frank Welker, Peter Cullen, Chris Latta, Michael Bell, Dan Gilvezan, Neil Ross, Corey Burton, Jack Angel and Gregg Berger. Also features Burgess Meredith and wrestler Sgt. Slaughter.
Screening format: 35mm (THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE) and Blu-ray (G.I. JOE: THE MOVIE)
A YouTube video by fellow Transfan Darkon633 provides us with the first video review of Robots In Disguise One-Step Changer Fix-It. Fix-It is part of Wave 2, which is currently shipping to retailers both at brick and mortar stores, such as Walmart, and online retailers such as Entertainment Earth.
Before you run off to buy this little mechanic bot, check out the video review to see if he's right for your collection. In the video, there's a scale comparison and in robot mode he seems to scale quite well with the rest of the Warrior Class figures.
When you're done watching the video, come on back to the forums to share your thoughts!
Keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest in news and updates, plus the best galleries around!
