You can almost hear the theme song as the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast shows up to lay down the low-down on the latest Transformers news and speculation, as host Scotty P and Mr. Starscream join up to saber their way to victory. Confirmed news, rumors, rumorleaks, actual leaks, leaks that aren't leaks - this episode has a little bit of it all, unless you were hoping for leeks. Those are not on the menu, because this is a Transformers podcast.

Episode #280 “A Roar That Grasps Victory” is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher Radio and many other Podcatcher sites within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

Motto: "Our society's downfall will not be this war. The war IS our society. That which will get us will be the little things. Some humanoid race, some tossed cannon, the little things that no one looks out for. THAT is for what we must be vigilant."
Weapon: Twin Shoulder-Mounted Rocket Launchers
Downloaded Stitcher, lets see if this plays better than Google Podcasts.

=========================
I know I am a bit of a broken record, but

I still say a modern Star Saber could have been done in a WFC Leader class. Design the Saber figure similar to the Earthrise Seeker and base the Star Saber armor to work the same way as Siege Ultra Magnus. I feel like even though Star Saber is an obscure Japanese character there is appeal for Super Space Fighter Plane that would appeal to kids in stores

Then you could do Victory Leo as a Voyager Weaponizer. I feel like there is enough elasticity in that for a risky obscure character that still turns into armor for Leaders and large voyager. Thats what I want to see.

Hasbro could also maybe redo it as a Voyager Leobreaker for Galaxy Optimus Prime

Two Commanders might better match the toy size the G1 collectors want, but that's a bit too large for what I am wanting.

I hope its not massively bigger than the Dai Atlas from TR Overlord

Don't make me want Chromedome...

For me the other good use for HasLab would be Landcross. The tooling for needing the Superlink style combiners, as well as the big dude could be more than the budget for Deluxes in a mainline. But thsts gonna be another huge pricepoint

Get ready for even more shipping issues too: the wildfires have closed major intermodal corridors for both UP and Canadian National (Port of Vancouver is the other main gateway with LA)

My model train remotes used 9v until two years ago. But to your point, finding a rechargable 9v that was reliable was a witch

I think those foil stickers make thr Selects look gaudy, but I hate to wait and see Repro does some nicer ones and its already sold out. I hope we see a naked Galvatron for photos

Stitchers what I listen to stuff on, when it's there. Interface is super easy and auto-sorts episodes by new, meaning we're usually near the bottom being bi-weekly but, eh, s'ok.

Chromedome was basically the leader for a few episodes. More or less. I'm helping :D

Landcross, Liokaiser and/or Dinoking would be my personal choices for a Victory Haslab, but I'm not holding my breath for those. In a world I controlled though, yeah, it'd be one of those three.

See, I was perfectly fine with Google Play Music until they split it into Yt Music and Google Podcasts, which does this neat thing where if you press the "rewind" or "skip singing" buttons it restarts the entire podcast from the beginning and won't let you use the trackbar. But you CAN turn the play speed up to 3x so you can listen to screaming mice for 20 minutes. That's just as good, right?

I just don't want to double back and have to get the TR Chromedome mold is all. I was perfectly happy with just the TFCC one since its that really fun Wheeljack mold and FoC Rewind.

Haslab project could be Rocket Base, stretch goal could then be Galaxy Shuttle.

(Yeah, we pretty much know it's Star Saber but Rocket Base would be quite neat.)
