Twincast / Podcast Episode #292 "Planet of Junk"

Planet of Junk - The 292nd episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast Podcast begins with a round of discussions about recently revealed, and sometimes unofficially leaked, upcoming Transformers toys. The Junkion named Junkyard is discussed first, then the 1986 Movie toy talk continues with Spike and his Exo-Suit. The toy train continues to track after that with impressions of the MPG-02 Getsuei, who also forms the right leg of the Raiden combiner. A quick look at possible Micro Machines of vehicles from the 2007 Transformers movie leads in to more quick impressions, this time for Drag Strip from the soon forthcoming Generations Legacy line. A pair of listener questions leads into a listener suggested segment where the cast takes groups of three and decides which is "fun", what goes in "my collection", and which gets destroyed by "Kremzeek". An extra short round of the recurring Bragging Rights segment then closes out another episode.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #291 "Til All Are 2021"

Til All Are 2021 - Episode 291 of the Seibertron.com Twincast Podcast looks back at 2021 and ahead to 2022. The retrospective begins with opinions on the objective best Transformer of the year before a small tilt occurs for the next topic where the cast provides their subjective favorites. Transformers TV and comic book releases are looked at next, with Cyberverse on the minds of the cast when thinking about the best media of the year. After a tongue-in-cheek look at the year's "Most 2020 Moment", the best-of segments are put on pause as the talk moves into scolding the worst toys and general developments for Transformers during the past year. Positive reflections return with a look at personal collecting achivements that occurred in the past twelve months. Predictions follow with both easy calls and less likely, wishful thinking predictions for what could be in store for Transformers in 2022. The recurring Bragging Rights segment closes another episode and another year of the show as usual.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #290 "On the Skids"

On the Skids - In episode 290 of the Seibertron.com Twincast Podcast, crew members discuss the rumors that Skybound Entertainment, publisher of the popular comic-series-turned-Amazon-Prime-streaming-cartoon Invincible, is looking to acquire the publishing rights of The Transformers. We speak to IDW's remarkable 16-year run and how times have changed, from the use of forums to source novice artists and fan feedback, to the way the focus and themes of the narratives have evolved with time. The discussion turns to toys, as ScottyP talks about his in-hand experience with Masterpiece MP53 Skids and MP54 Reboost, entries that are reminiscent of the 'Super Car' era. Super7's Ultimates Wave 3 are next on the agenda, with the eclectic mix of Wreck-Gar, Aliigatorcon, Tarn, and G2 Megatron all capturing the scattershot imaginations of the podcast team. Core Class Kingdom Hot Rod and Studio Series Bumblebee Movie Arcee earn a brief mention, before jumping into a more in-depth discussion of the Amazon exclusive Golden Disk collections Jackpot, Road Ranger, and Puffer figures. The episode concludes as it always does, with a round of bragging rights, where each member discusses what they've acquired since the last episode.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #289 "No Thanks Given"

No Thanks Given - The Seibertron.com Twincast Podcast gathers on a holiday weekend to talk about the Transformers, starting with the latest rumors of an upcoming Amazon exclusive sub-line featuring the Wreckers. In-hand impressions of several Transformers Collaborative toys follow, beginning with the Jurassic Park themed set featuring Tyrannocon Rex and Autobot JP93. The J. Balvin themed J. Balvintron, plus cassette companions Energia Buzzsaw and Vibras Stripes, are discussed next before the Collaborative talk ends with quick-hit impressions of the just-arriving Draculus figure. A special topic follows which goes around the table to see which toy gimmicks that never seemed to hit their stride, in popularity or execution, the cast would like to see make a comeback. The series finale to Transformers Cyberverse has been made available for most of the world through Youtube or other means, so that gets some attention from the crew before the episode ends with the recurring Bragging Rights segment.
Twincast / Podcast Episode #288 "Filler Episode"

Twincast / Podcast Episode #288 "Filler Episode"

Filler Episode - The Seibertron.com Twincast Podcast presents its 288th episode which starts out with reaction to the news of the year long delay for the next installment in the Transformers live action film franchise, Rise of the Beasts. Along with this topic, the cast considers what imaginary "filler" toy-lines they would like to see if the movie's accompanying toys happen to get delayed alongside the film's release. Actually planned toys are the next topic on the slate, with just-revealed Studio Series toys from the Bumblebee movie such as Deluxe Class Brawn and Voyager Class Soundwave creating excitement. The Generations: War for Cybertron: Kingdom Blaster also comes up, with inevitable thoughts about an obvious repaint inspired by the name of this very podcast. Impressions of the first 45 minute long Cyberverse special released last week on Hasbro's Youtube channel comes next, followed by brief lamentations on IDW's ongoing Transformers run inspired by a listener's question. The episode concludes with the regularly occurring Bragging Rights segment.

Combining Weapon Gimmick in Legacy Core Class Confirmed

Posted 1 day ago by william-james88 - 11,641 views

Fans were very quick to pick up on the strange weapons that come with core class Skywarp and Iguanus. Turns out, these same "weapons" can be seen combined to form a larger sword on the box art of core class Kingdom Hot Rod (which will be repacked in Legacy wave 1 with these other core figures). Below you will see images of each weapon along with the combination in the art. We will see how that extends to other classes when people have the varying classes in hand. Also it is unknown if Hasbro - Read More

Transformers Legacy Iguanus and Skywarp Revealed

Posted 2 days ago by william-james88 - 17,311 views

With this being Transformers Tuesday, Hasbro chose to unveil two upcoming figures from the Legacy line. Both are core class figures Iguanus and Skywarp. Iguanus goes from reptiliam monster (homaging the G1 pretender shell) to a motorbike (homaging the alt mode of the G1 inner robot). His smaller core class size might be to homage the smaller inner G1 bot, though the class size seems rather arbitrary as this design could have translated to any standard size (be it deluxe or voyager). Skywarp is - Read More

Transformers Rise of the Beasts Toyline Still Expected to Come out in April 2022

Posted 3 days ago by william-james88 - 22,674 views

When we did the year end review, what most of us selected as what we were looking forward to seeing this year was what will happen with the Rise of the Beast toyline. As we saw with Godzilla vs Kong, Black Widow, Snake Eyes and Rise of Gru, toy manufacturers and retailers cannot delay a toyline, even though it would benefit from being released at the same time as the movie it is linked to. It seems the loss of sale from a lack of cross promotion is not as big as the cost of storing all these - Read More

More In Hand Images of SS 86 Junkyard with First Look at Alt Mode

Posted 6 days ago by william-james88 - 37,545 views

We saw a bit of the upcoming Transformers Studio Series 86 Junkyard and now we have more images to show you. These now include the alt mode which has a very different look in the front than Wreck Gar due to the arm kibble. This works quite well in distinguishing this bike mode from Wreck Gar and making it look less like a robot going into a fetal position, since the arms and hands are now hidden. This toy is due out in stores around April/May, since it is from Wave 2. The wave mate is - Read More

First Look at Transformers Studio Series 86 Junkyard

Looks like a few people have SS86 Junkyard at the moment since we are getting various images/videos with him in it. Below you will see an image of the toy along with screenshots of him in Chefatron's Legacy Skids review. Junkyard is a far more extensive retool of SS86 Wreck Gar than some may have imagined. We only know what he looks like in bot mode for now. You will let us know what you think of this - Read More

MPG-02 Masterpiece Trainbot Getsuei Officially Revealed on Amazon Japan

Posted 8 days ago by william-james88 - 37,853 views

Great news to those wanting some more MP Raiden news. Amazon japan has revealed the second of six trainbots today. This is MPG-02 – Masterpiece Trainbot Getsuei. You'll let us know what you think from the images posted below since it seems the alt mode was even more favoured than in the first trainbot. While it gives the bot some odd proportions with very tall legs, it does make one of the most gorgeous train modes ever seen on a Transformers toy. And it being revealed on Amazon means you get - Read More

First look at Transformers Generations Selects Sandstorm

Posted 9 days ago by william-james88 - 41,867 views

We have our very first look at the upcoming Generations Selects Sandstorm. This is a redeco of Kingdom Scorponok based on a redeco of the original Beast Wars toy. It has a new headsculpt too based on the original toy's mutant head. However, the character in the fiction was never shown with that mutant head but with the toy head instead (see image below). It still gives us further distinction between the two releases of the mold. This is said not to be an exclusive and available at multiple - Read More

In Hand Images of Transformers Legacy Kickback

We have our best look yet at the upcoming Transformers Legacy deluxe Kickback. In the images below you will get a good look at his robot mode and alt mode from various angles along with comparisons to other Deceptions and the Titans Return version. There has been hyperbole used to say that Hasbro's smaller figures make the deluxe class look like a legends/scout class and these pictures show that there is no truth to that with Kickback well deserving the deluxe name, at least when it comes to - Read More

In Hand Images of Transformers Legacy Dragstrip

Posted 9 days ago by william-james88 - 30,836 views

We have our best look yet at the upcoming Transformers Legacy deluxe Drag Strip. In the images below you will get a good look at his robot mode and alt mode from various angles. Including the back, which actually looks too clean for a combiner. The final picture shows that the alt mode splits in half, showing that this will simply be parts to stick onto the menasor arms to give it the G1 animated look. We thank fellow Seibertronian O.Supreme for the heads up regarding the review from - Read More

In Hand Images of Legacy Skids with Comparisons

We have our best look yet at the upcoming Transformers Legacy deluxe Skids. In the images below you will get a good look at his robot mode and alt mode from various angles. Including the back, which actually looks very clean even though it's not an angle many care about. We also get an idea of his size and there seems to be some real life mass shifting going on since while his bot mode is much smaller than the MP version, his alt mode is almost the same size. We thank fellow Seibertronian - Read More
