Set adrift amidst a sea of new comics, outstanding current toy releases, and purchases yet to purchase the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast navigates the ever shifting currents of speculations, expectations, and fandom zeitgeist!

Captain Scotty P is joined by Co-Captains Megatronus, Counterpunch, and Tigertrack as we continue our quest to find the Knights of Cybertron while learning important lessons about life, love, and the dangers of shipping every two characters that share a panel.

Episode #205 "Ship Wrecked" 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.

Here's what we talk about during this episode, including comics and other recent news and reveals:
  • We open with a discussion of the recently released Amazon Exclusive Titans Return Repugnus.
    Image
  • The release of three highly relevant comics discussion, occupies much of our discussion on this episode. As usual, we don't hold back on spoilers, so if you're not caught up on Transformers comics and don't want to be spoiled, look out for 18:20 - 1:54:22 in the audio.
  • Optimus Prime 22 continues with its brilliant visual style and continues to set the stage for the Unicron Event while reminding us of past plot threads that may soon all tie together. Just how long until we get a Generations Detritus?
    Image
  • Unicron #3 drops some serious answers to the current crisis and poses the insidious question, "is it really monkeys all the way down?"
  • Lost Light 22 caps off our comic discussion. If you thought the reveals in Unicron were dramatic you're about to have the lid blown off.
    Image
  • Masterpiece 41 Dinobot brings warriors, accountants, and collectors alike to the table to discuss the perils and costs of potentially single use molds.
    Image
  • The 1984 cast takes another step towards completion for Masterpiece collectors as Wonderfest 2018 reveals Takara Masterpiece Hound.
  • Wonderfest 2018 rolls on and out withMasterpiece Optimus Prime V3. Will we be buying him again? Signs point to yes, except for Counterpunch who apparently needs more munky in his life.
  • Our final main topic focuses on the upcoming Siege line and what it means as an extension of the Classics/Generations branding we've come to love. Take a look at some new pictures from Wonderfest. While you're at it, go back and have a look through our SDCC2018 Siege Gallery. Don't forget to drop a line here also get a turn in the discussion.

I have to agree about Shockwave. He's... a pretty simple toy, so having him as a straight up leader would be quite a waste. He's gotta have some add ons or a gimmick of some sort.

So, I am going to do my full listen, but before I switch away from my phone, I want to post this.

Megatronus mentioned Vector Oracle, and I went and looked and got excited, but before I pulleD the trigger, I went to ser what Repug's gun looked like.


Image
Transformers G1 1987 Repugnus (Repug) Gallery

Its white, and has a circular disc in the middle. "Where have I seen that before?" And then it hit me.

Image
Thats the Hasbro Afterburner gun he's holding. Not o ly is it a good fit, but the hole on its side means it can mounted on the bug's carapace blades' handles.

Image
Image
Image

However, fair warning: In myattempts to repose him for Bot Mode, the tab that attach the sword to his back broke off in his back. No way I am getting that out without gouging something and I couldn't glue that if I wanted.

Image

But I quite like that and beteen both Hasbro and Takara Computron sets, I have a pair of guns I can spare.

This post brought to you by the Soundtrack for "The Greatest Showman". We now return you to your regularly scheduled PodCast Discussion.

PS. I LOVE Imgur. So much easier than Photobucket ever was.

Vote for Cutest Public Service Announcement.

I wonder what the listening numbers are?

I was going to say Scotty's thing about Twinferno being the B2 with Dragon heads, but Dang, you're right!, that IS the Metroid. I almost need to track that thing back down again. Shame on me for passing him.

If there's a reason, is it dumb?

As a head, I think I like the TR head better, but to be honest I think I like the PotP head on him as a whole. If I put the TR head on I would switch the Torsos.

So Titanium Soundwave is wearing a MAG.

*See my previous Post*

I think if there was a 4th Monsterbot, I would be getting burnt out of the mold. Doublecross set the bar, Grotusque really ran with it and it was cool. Repugnus does something so different with the same base mold, but I am also becoming conscious of the similar parts.

I like that Repugnus has his legs/Beast Mode abdomen remolded. They actually snap together, which is a problem I have with both of the previous, Doublecross moreso, mostly because of the tails.

I loved Spotlight Cliffjumper. Sad to see him gone.

I like the Trypticon take. Nice to see him more wise. Marissa's been a great human character. I am not fond of the IDW Prowl take.

Agreed, being spoiled by the Unicron release is not helping

Slide is just another part of my larger complaint with Prime. I am glad they have "Humanized" him, and I am glad to see IDW exploring the idea of what is one person's God and another's Job Title, for want of a better word, but for me they've muddied Prime too much and Slide just keeps calling that out to me. He's almost the naysayer's of the comic in character form.

I don't think SLide CAN get an alt mode. In the Windblade series, they call out that the Sparks of Divisiun split, sorta like IDW TopSpin and Twin Twist in Last Stand, but even moreso, the Divisiun Transformers are literally 2 halves of 1 whole, one nervous system, anything he scans he becomes the back of, or worse, his T-Cog may not even work, because it requires having contact with his other half to compensate for the reformat and when he tries to rescan it's going "ERROR- HARDWARE NOT FOUND> UNABLE TO COMPLETE TRANS_SCAN"

Also, his point about "I can't transform" isn't about him not transforming, its that severl times through the IDW Comics the "Colonists have transformed and driven off without him. He had to WALK where they were going. If he were on Divisiun, maybe they have technology to refit him with a dummy front half, or dedicated Public Transportation at least. But the others just LEFT him standing in the Mojave.

Now, why isn't he just walking wit the giant crab? I don't have a smart answer for that.

To be fair, when Megatron came back, Starscream was being numbed by the Matrix

Definately want a Good Detritus.

I forgot about that Hot Shot head.

Arti: "Information Creep"

In Stormbringer, he was loyal to Thunderwing.

Didn't they reinforce that old Weak Spot though?

I thought the Izzles were dead? They died trying to save Kup.

Well, we do sorta know why Micronus left though, don't we? DIdn;t he leave when the other Primes left/were run off Cybertron?

Primus Hand---> Guiding Hand.

I love how they reveal Rung is Primus, when the COver is showing Chromedome literally running with him like a battering ram.

If Rung is Primus, doesn't that mean that Red Alert has been crying to GOD for how many miullion years?

It's sad Terminus wasn't there to say "Uh, sorry, thats uh my Bad"

Decibel was Megatron's Officer on the Last Light.

Yes, Matt, thats him.

Yes, there was a roll-up tacklebox case. I had one as a Kid.
Image

In Lore, Adaptus became the T-Cog. Obviously that's not the case, but what if that legend was based on what happened to Epistemus being reduced to the Magnificence? Yeah, it's forced, but it makes sense since the Magnificence is an artifical Epiphany

I thought it was a nice touch that, knowing now that Solomus is Tyrest, that Tyrest subconscouiously reaching out to his old brother.

I got the impression that Mortilus, Primus, and Solomus more or less willingly chose to be "reborn" for a reason. They don't reember who they are or are the same because they aren't the same Guys anymore. Same Spark maybe, same basic mind, but different ways of thinking and different life experience.

They do kinda match up to the Quints, don't they? Tyrest's' crown does match the Quint Judgement head. Less so.

Adaptus/Pharma came through the Burrow from the past and Saw the Primus. He created the God Gun to punch a hole in the Universe to get rid of Primus, not knowing that he was creating a Self-Fulfilling Prophecy.

Hound definately has pins in his head, it looks like something flips out of his noggin.

I personally don't like the gap etween the front bumper and the fenders in his Bot Mode. Probably accurate, but I don't like it.

Arti: I worked in an Amazon warehouse for a Christmas, and was on the Individual Package Recieving. My job, along with one other, was to load a conveyor and unload the truck. One night, we opened the trailer, and I walked in to discover a box. It's long, narrow, flat, and heavy; looks like the box you get at Walmart when you buy a bookshelf. UPS had it tagged "71 of 123", meaning there were likely 123 of these in the trailer.

The were Kosher Rated, Pine Box Coffins.

And they were in differernt sizes ranging from "Small Dog or Cat" to "Fat Guy". We decided to leave them for Day Shift. Days lovingly left it for us.

When Siege frist dropped, I was hella in love with all of it, but after First Impressions, I have really cooled to them. Even Magnus, I will get it, but the more I see it, the more I actually am appreciating the CW mold. I prefer the SIege Alt mode because it actually looks like something, but it's another Parts former, and I really like the 1 piece Magnus.

Is Shocky confirmed for Siege? I don't want a Leader of him myself, but I'm down for any good Shockwave. I could be down for a Shockwave that comes with a buttload of accesories.

I DO want a Tidal Wave that armors up Megatron. Will it happen? When Pigs FLy. But it's cool.

Generations Percy was more Classics style.

I love that Poster where Predaking has Defensor thrown against a wall, staring down Superion who just scrapped himself. So I am quite happy with his hugeness.

Cheetimus actually did a Cyclonus Custom.

My favorite TR toy just by the one I keep pulling off my shelf, is Metalhawk. I even like him more than Triggerhappy, even though its the same mold.

I saw TFTM in theaters during a Botcon. I am taking two friends. I got lucky though because it falls on a Day I normally have off, I work weekends so this plays out.

Thanks guys!
