2016 Seibertron.com Year in Review - A Beastly Task

2016 Seibertron.com Year in Review - A Beastly Task

2016 Year In Review - One more day is left, and this year will be over. If you look at 2016, there have been too high a number of dark moments outside of the life on the boards. But when you look at what our hobby, our fandom, our world of robots have produced, we actually struck some very good chords this year, wouldn't you agree? It has been a year of anniversaries, a year of milestones, a year of beasts and movies and comics, a year of toys, a year of endings and beginnings -- I suppose it's only right that we take some time now to make it ... A Year in Review - Transformers 2016!
Seibertron.com Interviews Lost Light Artist Jack Lawrence

Seibertron.com Interviews Lost Light Artist Jack Lawrence

Jacked Up - We return, once more, to the IDW ever-shifting stables and rosters of creatives, for another interview in the Seibertron.com folder of 'the minds behind the hands behind the robots' that we read and love and hate and hate to love and love to hate. This time round? It's an entirely new addition, for an entirely new title, riding the wave of an established story... Readers, please welcome the co-artist on new title Transformers: Lost Light, the newly renamed brainchild of James Roberts and Alex Milne - Jack Lawrence!

Seibertron.com Interviews Simon Furman: from the Past to The Death

Furmanisms - You won't believe the things we can do now, as Seibertron.com has been fidgeting behind the scenes to bring you more exclusive content from the creators of one of the longest running brands of fiction about giant transforming robots out there. You all bring so much to the community and fandom... can we do any less for you? You may be asking what we're playing at, with these odd turns of phrase, but the more perspicacious among you may have noted the pattern. We planted the seeds a long time ago, Seibertronians, it is now time to reap the whirlwind: please welcome to our interview series... Simon Furman!
Twincast / Podcast Episode #148: "And Rom The Space Knight"

Twincast / Podcast Episode #148: "And Rom The Space Knight"

And Rom The Space Knight - Our first chat is about the most recent issue of Transformers #54, new series Transformers: ’TIl All Are One and of course, not to be left out a little something we like to call More Than Meets the Eye, issue #54. What is Galvatron’s final play…does he have a trump card or is it all on the table? Is Swindle still alive? Should Megatron die? We ask these questions and more, then to wrap up the comic discussion, we talk more REVOLUTION and decide if the TRANSFORMERS universe is getting a soft reboot, no reboot, or a very hard reboot. Our ongoing Beast Wars TV series rewatch continues with episode 18, "Spider's Game", and episode 19, "Call of the Wild". After that, we briefly reach into our creative bags and throw some paint schemes out there for the new PLATINUM EDITION UNICRON and KRANIX. SDCC is coming soon, and we share what version of TITAN MASTERS FORTRESS MAXIMUS we want the most to be our Fortress. You’d think this would be enough, but nope, we finally delve into a topic led by Counterpunch that breaches the world of packages ... Transformers toy packages that is. The best? The worst? What in packaging attracts you? What turns you off? What packages do you keep or do you just throw it all away? We end this jam session with some bragging about our BEST recent purchases that are toys at least 10 years old.

Twincast / Podcast Episode #147 "In Flanders Fields"

In Flanders Fields - We take a deep look into the world of Transformers comic book releases from IDW Publishing. This episode's focus is all on More Than Meets The Eye issue number 53, with Scotty P, Mr. Starscream, and Dr. Va'al going page by page through the book. This episode will completely "spoil" this issue, and many plot points in the greater IDW Transformers story arc, for readers that have not caught up to this point in the story. Speculation abounds along the way, with several stops to look at where the series has been and where it might be going. This is a special episode of the show in a slightly shorter time format, so tune in as the team analyzes and ponders the goings on with the crew of the Lost Light.
