Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host ScottyP (back from a much needed vacation) along with Starscream and Razorclaw0000 as we dish on a massive amount of Movie toys and more. Wade into the Bayhem with us below!

Episode #198 "A Night in the Studio" is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on iTunes, Google Play, and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

First up, we talk about the recently available Studio Series Leader Grimlock and Blackout, and Voyagers Starscream and Optimus Prime. We discuss comparisons to previous figures, scale, articulation, alt modes, engineering, and much more!

Following up, we discussed availability and in-hand impressions of (currently) Toys'R'Us-exclusive Studio Series Thundercracker. We speculate on eventual availability at other chains, after-market prices, and discussion of the figure itself.

We then take a quick hop to Takara-land and discuss the recent Movie The Best figures as well as how Movie the Best and Studio Series fit together as a whole. We talk through some of the gems in the line, and the future of the movie toys. The cast works together here to find out if both MB and Studio Series can live together in harmony on your shelf.

Closing out our movie discussion, Scotty gives us a great in-hand preview of MPM-5 Barricade. While not generally available yet, many of our sponsors have this figure in stock or have available pre-orders. We chat about many of the details, including complexity, articulation, accessories, size, and more.

Next, Starscream gives us an overview of Dairycon, which recently held its 18th annual convention in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. We discuss the dealer room, growth of the convention, exclusives, and general atmosphere, comparing it to other unofficial fan-run conventions. Might there even be some luck involved? Maybe the kind that's drawn!?

Puns... everywhere!


We next touch on some listener discussion from Episode 197. In this segment we talk about a potential timeline for IDW's reboot, and the merits and drawbacks of both immediately rebooting and waiting.

We bring the show to a close with some quick discussion on some recent toy news, including the availability of Authentics at Market 6 retailers, an Armada-inspired Nemesis Prime, and the long-awaited release of LG-EX Greatshot and Grand Maximus. We wrap things up with a quick "Bragging Rights" section.

I'm so sorry for that dagum cricket. I did what I could in post-production. If it happens again I'll pause to find it and eliminate it :(

I guess this one went over like crickets :HEADHURTS:

199 is going to be another week or so, in case anyone was wondering. Guess I just feel compelled to say something when our schedule falls into the "ish" part of "bi-weekly-ish".

I've let you down. :-(

Sorry man, its been one of those months, I finally got to listen to 197 and 198, but rhey were in pieces abd not near a keyboard. I have things to say, but I kinds want to relisten to the show so I can organize my thoughts.

Also, this is the second time I have written this post, the Seibertron website keeps throwing 503 errors, where its loading the header and sidebars but not the content of the page. Also did it to the PM Mailbox page too

If it matters: I am on Chrime on an LG V30+.

I did listen, but all of my thoughts on stuff are posted across the boards in their own threads, so I didn't come back here to say much. Sooorryy. :-(
