Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This very special LIVE, video-recorded episode features your host ScottyP along with cast members Counterpunch, RodimusConvoy13, xRotorstormx, TigerTrack24, Megatronus, and for a few fleeting moments, Seibertron himself, live from San Diego! Listen in as we discuss the latest news and reveals coming out of the vaulted halls of SDCC.

Episode #151 "SDCC 2016" 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.

As a special bonus in the audio version of the show, join Seibertron at SDCC 2016 as he talks with members of the Transformers brand team!

Thanks as always to our amazing friends at Hasbro and the Transformers Brand Team!


The remainder of the show kicks things off with a lively discussion dissecting one of the biggest reveals of the show: triple-changing Titans Return Voyager Megatron. The cast has both high hopes for and reservations about this figure - but bigger news awaits.

Image
Do you see what I see? (No, it's not a Triggerhappy Optimus.)


We move right along to some exciting Legends reveals: an all-new Bumblebee (yawn) and Gnaw, the Sharkticon (yay). As we bemoan the inevitable shortage of these nifty little troop-builders in the making, one question rules all: does Gnaw have a fat head? Watch or listen to find out.

Image
Catch 'em all!


Titans Return Legends Lione (Sawback) and Overload (Overkill) are on the block - as are their strange and wondrous alt modes. Before the Twincast can get too deep into the weeds, a question emerges: what missed opportunities do we see with this line of Headmasters?

Free cookie to whoever can tell me how that alt mode works.


Ever since he was leaked at Botcon, Liokaiser (video here) has been generating considerable excitement - but not everyone is pleased. Tune in to find out what's bugging the crew, and why some might be passing on this Platinum Edition set.

Image
The boys are back in town... minus one.


RID gets some much needed love with Super Ginrai, a showdown set with stasis pod, and... Starscream? That's right, one of the Decepticons most conniving players makes an entry into both the cartoon AND toy line. Tune in to find out which version we prefer.

A face only a mother could love.


Viva La Revolucion! That's right, the Revolution is upon us as we discuss the latest and greatest in comics - for those looking to avoid spoilers, this section occurs from one hour and fifty one minutes to approximately two hours and sixteen minutes.

Image
ROM ROM ROM ROM ROM.


BREAKING NEWS: straight out of Wonderfest, we have color pictures of the highly anticipated Masterpiece Cheetor. The crew is pumped as we parlay this topic into a listener question: what does the crew think the next 5 MPs will be?

Image
Meeee-owwww.


We wrap up our video live show with everyone's favorite segment: bragging rights. Some of us are still waiting on Titans Return to hit shelves; others have some shiny new toys (literally) that steal the show.

Image
Bringing the bling.



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.

On 153 (yep) which is out next week-ish, while talking about TR Fort Max/bases I forgot to bring up how cool the Rescue Bots playset compatibility is right now. Those little hexagonal connectors lead to some fun possibilities!

I agree with you 110% on Lio Kaiser. They could've done the set right, instead, we're getting another box set of repaints. Heck, I would've preferred a re-release of the original set.
