Grab your energon pitchforks and plasma torches faithful listeners! On the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast/Podcast, your host Counterpunch tries to find the silver lining in the disappointment the fandom has encountered over the last few weeks. Throwing gas on the fire is repeat guests Razorclaw and Tigertracks. As always, you can download the Twincast directly from iTunes or here at Seibertron.com's Twincast RSS feed.

Kicking things off, we discuss the launch (and relaunch) of the TFCC Exclusive Over-Run and Shattered Glass Drift figures, as well as the problems the Club managed during the sale.

Image

We discuss the issue with preorders, offer suggestions for the future, and discuss the figures themselves.

Next up, we lament the unexpected end of Transformers Prime: First Edition toys. We analyze the problems with store exclusives, discuss the costs involved, speculate on reasons, and get rather salty about the whole affair, including the shortage of Takara First Edition toys to compound fan desire.

Image

Moving on from First Edition to Robots in Disguise, we give our thoughts on the recently revealed Ratchet and Optimus Maximus, as well as some of the other, upcoming figures.

Image

Image

We then jump to other side of the world, and review the just-released United Rodimus and give our thoughts on his over-the-top paint apps.

Image

We have some Micron talk up next for those collectors with a tiny figure predilection, with the recently announced Arms Micron line.

Image

Finally, we discuss a few pieces of excellent art floating around from the likes of Jim Sorenson and Guido Guidi showing us some new sides to the art we've come to know and love.

Here's a little gem that almost slipped through the cracks! The same set of catalog images from the N├╝rnberger Toy Fair that gave up our first look at Kre-O Devastator also has a better image of the Transformers Prime Cyberverse Drill Tank with Knockout playset. We got our first look at this set from the Argos catalog scans a couple of weeks ago. This image is clearer and gives us a much better look at Cyberverse Knockout in both modes, who comes with translucent staff and buzzsaw accessories.

The Transformers Galaxy Hong Kong Fans Group have posted a couple of new images that reveal previously unknown Bot Shot characters. We actually saw some of the wave 2 figures a few days ago when we received the leaked images for the UK Toy Fair, but this confirms their identities. The blue sports car is Mirage along with movie Brawl and Autobot Ratchet. The unidentified wave adds Jetfire, Thundercracker, Movie Topspin, and Lockdown. Images mirrored below.

Courtesy of @Seibertroncom twitter follower -neurie- we have new images of some upcoming Transformers toys. We see four new and Bot Shots: G1 Ratchet, Movie Brawl, and two unknown sports cars. Next we have what is likely the Leader sized "Weaponizer" Optimus Prime that was shown at the UK Toy Fair, as it seems to match the description that was given:

Prime Weaponizers - Leader Class figures. Choose from Bumblebee or Optimus Prime who was on display, these new larger scale figures feature 4 modes of play with concealed weapons, Prime himself had a set of gattling guns which can flip out from under his hood in truck mode or mount the shoulders in robot mode. They have been simplified over previous leaders so the core audience of children can transform them more easily.


Lastly we have slightly better version of the Optimus Maximus image that was revealed last night.

Images mirrored below.

Optimus Maximus Revealed?

Remember the Supreme Class Optimus Maximus news that came out of the UK Toy Fair a few days ago? Courtesy of twitter an image of the figure has been revealed. The figure appears to be based Optimus Prime (not a shocker it's called Optimus Maximus after all) and according to the previous news transforms into a base with electronic features for use with Cyberverse figures.

Optimus Maximus - bases make a return to the line with Maximus, a large scale Cyberverse Playset which doubles a fully transforming figure and base for your Cyberverse figures. Featuring light and sound features, firing rockets and launching vehicle this guy was fairly imposing standing somewhere in between Ultimate Op and a regular Leader Class figure. It looked quite bare without any Cyberverse figures locked in but you could see the gun turrets just waiting to be armed by you min faves.
