The Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast is gearing up for another year of Black Friday goodness. Your host Megatronus along with xRotorstormx discuss their plans for Black Friday as well as all the latest Power of the Primes, Siege, and Bumblebee Movie news.

Episode #212 "Countdown to Black Friday" 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:

o We start the show off with a discussion on how Black Friday has changed over the years and if the TRU closing or Cyber Monday impacts our spending habits.
o PotP Optimal Optimus has been sighted at Target, Studio Series ROTF Starscream has also made it to store shelves, and Siege Micromasters have started to show up in stores as well.

Image

o Our very own Seibertron has been working non-stop to provide us with some amazing Galleries for the latest Siege Micro Masters, Battle Masters, Deluxes and even fan favorites Optimus and Megatron.

Image

o We have a bit of science afoot with a mass analysis of Siege Optimus & Megatron versus their Titans Return counterparts, and the result may surprise you.
o More information has come to light regarding the runtime and rating for the Bumblebee Movie, as well as a new trailer featuring some Optimus on Thundercracker action on Cybertron! #JoinTheBuzz

Image

o Of course we close out this episode with a short round of Bragging Rights.

Something like the evolution gimmick has been done before. For one, Powermaster Prime. For another, Star Saber.

NEVER DONE BEFORE I SAY!

...

I could qualify it a few ways - i.e. we've never seen something executed in this way in the Generations line, or we've not had an expression of evolution where one character indelibly transforms into another. That is to say, someone like Star Saber or Powermaster Prime is a super mode; Prime doesn't have the ability to convert back to Orion in the fiction (although I suppose Rodimus reverts to Hot Rod in the cartoon/anime).

You're right on this in that there's never been "Beast Wars but worse than in the 90s" before Optimal Optimus. The other Generations Beast Wars figures were marvelous improvements over the originals (I'm not counting Universe Cheetor and Dinobot here, just Rhinox, Rattrap, and Waspinator)

I'll take the backhanded affirmation all the way to the bank :lol:
