Welcome to the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast Episode Number 230, where Primes abound and ghosts are haunting. Join your host ScottyP as he welcomes xRotorstormx and D-Maximal_Primal for a discussion that delves into the depths of 3 Convoys (or Optimus Primes), some Generations Selects, and some more G2 goodness. Are you ready to dive into the Opti-verse?

Episode #230 "The Search for Convoy" is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on Apple Podcasts, 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:

  • We start off with some opening thoughts from ScottyP who has the new MP-44 Optimus Prime in-hand.

    Megatron must be stopped, no matter the cost (Actual cost between $300 and $450)

  • Next up, we delve into the War Stories from the San Diego Comic Con exclusive hunting session. One member suffered a particularly bad sense of luck.

  • Exclusives segue into some Generations selects talk, where we talk the awesome paint on Nightbird, the sheer doofy fun of Zetar, and the camera package of Refraktor.

    Gobots make their triumphant return

  • We check in with the Chaos Bringer, who seems to have stalled out after the extension 2 weeks ago.

    Chaos continues to rise

  • We check in on Cyberverse season 2 as it kicks off, with some heavily spoilerific talk about the first 2 episodes. You can watch the first episode here.
  • Story time with ScottyP continues with the next Bio from the Grandreams Generation 2 Annual
  • We also throw in some talk about the newly revealed Masterpiece Burning Convoy, and what we think of this clear candy Convoy.

    Flaming Munky!

I only listened to the first few minutes so far, and didn't even hear the end of his thoughts, but Scotty is speaking to my soul on 44.

I want this figure, but no matter how I twist and turn and justify in my mind, I just can't bring myself to pull the trigger for $350 (it's current amazon.jp price).

Great episode gang. It was awesome hearing D-Maximal himself on there and Rotorstorm too. Just a fun laid back couple hours talking about Transformers. Just what the doctor ordered. Thanks! ;)^

Update on that SDCC debacle: my source who had ordered one had his pretty much cancelled. They did not actually cancel the order, but they cannot no longer find the stock to satisfy the order even though they charged him for it. So refund and promising him one when it comes back in stock. HAHAHAHASBRO

And then he also had his Zetar cancelled, same story. Got 2 Nightbirds that he did not order but no Zetar he actually ordered.

He was also a pulse guy who did not get his order in for Prime until day 2, and then this happened. And unlike me, he paid for his back 2 months ago. He is understandably furious.

Fortunately, it seems a generous other Podcaster and I have worked something out for TFcon, so here's hoping i finally manage to end this luck!

Good. You deserve one.



Finished the 'cast, and as usual I enjoyed it. As one of the sticks in the mud telling people to be smart when considering backing Unicron, thank you Scotty, for your PSA. ;)

I was surprised one aspect of the weeks developments wasn't discussed....

Also, on your idea of making it a limited run of 10000, I take Dmax's side of it not working, but for a different reason. I think the 8000 mark was too high to shoot for. I honestly dont think that there are that many fans, in north America, willing and/or able to spend 600 bucks on something with no play value. Hell, even Seibertron said that he would take it out of the box to look at, then stick it straight into storage.


But hey, I was also shocked when it surpassed 2500 backers, so what do I k now, you know. :-D

That started going down on Friday, or at least that's when I learned of it. We recorded last Thursday so didn't get to chat about it. Pretty interesting from an academic-like legal standpoint for me, might grab some highlights next ep.

This all assumes we're talking about the same thing :lol:

You guys flipping over 12 pack hot dogs for $0.99 at Save Mart TOO? It was today only, was so exciting. That's my first guess at least.

At some point in the ep you mentioned how many days were left on the hot dog sale and I was like oh that was a couple days ago. I figured that's why you didn't mention the hot dogs specifically but what you said about hot dogs was still really applicable to the current hot dog situation.

That's assuming we're not talking about burgers.

Scotty, you did 44s storage bin wrong. You didn't push the extra heads down all the way. It takes a lil extra oomph, but if you do, plenty of clearance when you slide the tray home.

Just a little something I learned today playing with mine, and remembering your report here.
