Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. Intrepid host ScottyP is joined by RodimusConvoy13 and, in what is like the sighting of a rare, albino elk, Razorclaw0000! What wise Transformers insights will they drop on you in this episode? More than you can imagine, Optimus Prime.

Episode #182 "Great Expectations" 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.

Once the usual pleasantries are out of the way, the team dives into the San Diego Comic Con 2017 exclusives. Ordering seemed to go pretty smoothly for the cast this year, what was your experience? We also take time to reminisce on past experiences with obtaining exclusives.

She said see you later bot


Moving onto more exclusives, the latest exclusive set from site sponsor Big Bad Toy Store has been released in the form of the Titans Return "Siege on Cybertron" box set, with preorders starting to be fulfilled. We discuss our thoughts on the set and how poor ScottyP waited too long and doesn't have a preorder. These are beginning to arrive at collectors' homes now, so if you got a chance to get in on this set let us know what you think of it by replying to this post!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #182 "Great Expectations"
It's only $5 more than the Takara version of one of the figures. By Grabthar's Hammer! What a savings!


Next up, RodimusConvoy13 fills us in on the recently announced MP-40 Targetmaster Hot Rodimus. Is a new deco and a Targetmaster enough to warrant a purchase of this fine Masterpiece? The various differences between MP-28 and MP-40 are discussed along with variances between Firebolts and MP Targetmasters in general. Plus: an idea for a repaint that has Razorclaw0000 getting, well, let's just say "excited".

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #182 "Great Expectations"
You'll never get me in full on Transformers: The Movie coloring, so stop asking.


Keeping the topic on upcoming Takara releases, our stalwart crew discusses the reveals of the upcoming Legends Overlord, Blitzwing, and Autobot Clones. What is difference between these and their Hasbro releases? What do we like better? Can the Shuffler repaint be the beginning of a robotic pachyderm army you never knew you wanted? What about the Clones? There's a little grumbling about them, but hey, it's not like Cloudraker is getting replaced by Ben Reilly...

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #182 "Great Expectations"
No, seriously, this is the real Cloudraker. That other guy was the clone.


Staying with toys, Scotty gives us his thoughts on Masterpiece Movie Optimus Prime and they are not good thoughts. He explains the difficulty in the transformation and poor instructions that come with the figure. It's more of an action figure than a Transformer to him, and the comparisons are damning. Listen in for the full rundown and find out why this one might have needed a little bit more time in Beta before being sent out to store shelves, and save money by just checking out the awesome Seibertron.com Gallery of MPM-4 Movie Masterpiece Optimus Prime. Seriously, it seems viewing the gallery is more fun than trying to transform the toy!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #182 "Great Expectations"
Prepare to spend a lot of time turning me into a truck.


Masterpiece Movie Prime's lackluster in-hand presentation, from the perspective of the box, packaging, included paperwork, and range of accessories leads into a discussion on what some of our favorite packaging/presentations of Transformers figures have been. What makes a great experience just opening the box? Has there ever been a figure that was greatly enhanced for you by the experience of opening the package? Let us know some of your favorites!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #182 "Great Expectations"
One thing we can all agree on - this packaging was just darn cool.


Moving on from toys to Media, it's been announced that the Japanese version of the G1 Cartoon is being released on Blu-Ray. Apparently this is getting released with no remastering. So it will be DVD(or less) quality on three blu-ray discs. We ask, "What is the point?" Also, it's really expensive.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #182 "Great Expectations"
That's some sweet artwork though.


IDW's next big crossover event has started. We discuss First Strike and what we thought of it. Check out the Seibertron.com review here. It's a fun, action packed book that seems like a good jumping on point for the wider Hasbro/IDW Universe, but is the release schedule killing excitement for all the books it's spoiling?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #182 "Great Expectations"
Ninjas! Aaah! Oh, wait, I'm a ninja too.


Next we discuss Revolutionaries #7 and how the big reveal in that book ties into First Strike. ScottyP lets us know that we're missing out on some fun stuff in the Revolutionaries book and listeners should check it out. It's the book Kup is hanging out in, so it can't be all bad.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #182 "Great Expectations"
Don't we all miss Teaspoon, Cybertron's Chief Dishwasher?


We finish our comic talk with the last issue of a fantastic series, Til All Are One #12. We talk about what we loved about this particular issue and the series in general. It was a great book that showed the general day to day life on Cybertron. There's still the annual coming, so tell us what you want to see wrapped up in that story due later this year.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #182 "Great Expectations"
It was so much more than just a book about me!


The Twincast goes off the rails for a moment and lands in Westeros. Yes, again. We have a spoiler laden discussion that could easily spiral out of control. Will anyone take the Black and go to the Wall? Winter is coming! Hurry, let's steer this back to Transformers before the White Walkers get us!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #182 "Great Expectations"
You think he likes Brienne, wait until he sees Arcee!


We finish off the show with some bragging rights. What new goodies have we gotten since the last time? How much is currently in transit?

You think you like Topspin? You're gonna love me!

Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Event "Zeek and Destroy!"

  • We have received reports regarding an issue with the increased deploy range of Soundwave and Blasters minions.
      Thanks for the reports, we're currently actively investigating why this is happening. A fix should be released soon in an upcoming content push
  • Last week we made it so Combiners could no longer target bots with Rush & Smash to stop them rushing through the map.
      This is only a temporary change and we're working on a way to stop Combiners charging through the map when targeting bots. We hope to have this function enabled again soon.
  • When going through the troop profiles the damage stat would switch and get stuck on healing after viewing a healer bot.
      The reason for this has been identified and a fix will be released in the next build.

Transformers Forged To Fight Developer QA: Shockwave

Shockwave Revealed

This week we’re going to take a look at the one-eyed wonder himself -Shockwave.

Sam Makes Shockwave Sizzle

Cuz: You were in charge of visual effects for Shockwave. I couldn’t help but notice a recurring theme running through all his moves...purple. Was this some sort of tribute to the late, great Prince?

Sam: C’mon Cuz, you know that purple is the iconic Decepticon colour, particularly for Shockwave.

Cuz: Of course, was just testing you. What was your favorite effect to do for Shockwave?

Sam: Hmmm, probably his last laser blast on the level 3, where you see his gun shooting the opponent into the ground, and thecamera swings around to show the view from his perspective.


Francois Takes Aim With Shockwave

Cuz: I’m really digging Shockwave’s number three special. Take us behind the inspiration.

Francois: For Shockwave’s special three, we wanted to show a sense ofescalation. He starts with his mini-me gun, then his canon and finish you by transforming into his gun form and blasting you through the ground.

Cuz: I’m glad you took sort artistic liberties and actually had him hit the targets and move around with reasonable agility. Fans have been known to knock the big guy for those two qualities;) Of the moves you animated for him, which one is your favorite?

Francois: Definitely his special two. He knocks you back with his energy field and uses his laser beam to cut the screen in two. This move was without doubt inspired by Dragon Ball Z.


Ryan Designs The Decepticons’ Most Famous Bridgewatcher

Cuz: It must have been both an honor and a tremendous responsibility coming up with the stats and design for such a heavyweight fan favorite like Shockwave. What makes the master of logic tick?

Ryan: We knew he was going to be master of Shock (it’s in his name), so Shockwave can absorb energy from the opponent’s ranged attacks to amplify Shock Damage inflicted by his Special and Heavy Attacks. Equipped with Heal Block, Shockwave will ensure that even Healers have no escape from destruction at his hands. Finally his Signature Ability grants him the ability to Undo any damage dealt to him over a certain time period, making the opponent’s defeat all the more inevitable.

Cuz: What’s the best mod to pair him with? Have you made a special aim enhancement mod?

Ryan: The Strange Refractor turns Shockwave into the ultimate challenge for both Ranged and Melee play styles; do you shoot him with a Ranged Attack and have him absorb it or do you move in to hit him with a Melee Attack and risk being Stunned by the Refractor? Shockwave has also cooked up some unseen mods like the "Yet-To-Be-Named" Mod that commanders can eventually use toput him over the top...once he feels the time is right to reveal it of course.

Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Event - Ultimate Weapon

  • We have had reports that Combiners can charge out of the map when using Rush & Smash.
      To resolve this we have removed the ability to target bots with Rush & Smash, this should stop incidents like this from happening anymore.
  • Further reports are being received regarding 2 of the same bots being in a single squad. This can cause the game to crash if you attempt to battle with them.
      We're still actively investigating this, but, for now, we would advise you to just remove one of the bots and not try to battle with both.
  • We had a lot of reports regarding the quantity of Premium Character Crystalsthat were rewarded in the recent Leaderboard Event.
      This was just a display issue, and the correct amount of Premium Character Crystal will be rewarded when the event is over.

These are just a few examples of the reports that we've received from you, and we continue to work hard to improve your experience with the game every day.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. Join host Scotty P plus almost everyone else you know and love from the Twincast, including Counterpunch, Jon 3.0, Megatronus, RodimusConvoy13, and Rotorstorm. With a busy summertime of news, a calm approaches and the gang finally gets to Kickback with some Shrapnel and drop poetic Bombshell opinions.

Episode #181 "Wipe-Out" 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.

Wait, did that say "poetic"? Yes indeed, as a lighthearted way to start out this episode, the first and probably last ever Twincast / Podcast Poetry Grand Slam is here! Each podcaster came up with Transformers related haikus, and the topics range from e-Hobby New Year's Specials to the death of the cinematic universe's writer's room. Sit tight while the cast works off the cobwebs of being bound to a news cycle for discussions as we have some fun on poetry night.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #181 "Wipe-Out"
This: Not a Haiku
It's only a short poem
Not what we did here
(kinda)


Movie topics won't die on us yet. With the delay of the Bumblebee Movie, along with the news of John Cena being cast in the film, we attempt to take it seriously but just make wrestling jokes instead. We hope you're ready for an Attitude Adjustment, because it's guaranteed that you won't be able to see this topic. Its time is up, its time is now, so five-knuckle-shuffle your way up to the download button!

Transformers vs G.I. Joe


Of course, regular listeners of the show may be acutely aware that due to the way recent show topics have fallen, we've neglected to give our in-hand opinions on this year's biggest release: Titan Class Trypticon with Necro and Full-Tilt. Counterpunch and Scotty P are proud owners of this dinosaur menace, and talk about their product codes, fixes that were completed, and how the process of stickers went. Plus - if you're driving near I-40 somewhere west of the Mississippi, maybe you'll spot Jon 3.0's wayward Trypticon son. All this and (mostly) everyone forgetting why he's called Trypticon awaits you in this part of the show.

As we continue with Titans Return, we take a look ahead to totally rumored releases for Power of the Primes that definitely maybe will happen or won't happen. Are we discussing totally real events that definitely happened? Is the rumor mill one corn short of overloading our meal with pepper? Will this paragraph ever make sense at all? Get your copy of a Clean Desk Policy ready to read between the lines for this part of the program, with one last hint given here by this seriously unrelated image below.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #181 "Wipe-Out"
Just play along, ok? Thanks, pals :)


Ah, The Rebirth. The classic, revered, definitely not rushed out of production five three episode wrap-up to the American version of the G1 cartoon series. Who can forget the superb depth of characterization given to new toys like Six Shot, and the definitely not weird at all part where a little boy becomes Arcee's head. We can finally celebrate the normalcy of that latter part with a new Arcee with "Leinad" toy, as we were able to discuss last episode, but now we can do so while taking pot-shots at Flo Rida. In case you hadn't yet gathered from this post, the episode is called "Wipe-Out" for a reason.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #181 "Wipe-Out"
Maybe Leinad is the real Florida.


We haven't forgotten about comics yet, even if you stopped reading. With last week's release of Lost Light #8 still fresh on our minds, we consider the book's plot, characters, and larger message. With huge mysteries inching closer to resolution, be warned that some spoilers within might be particularly rough if you aren't ready or willing to hear them. Wipe-Out even appears for Total Brand Awareness with this podcast! We also take a quick moment to discuss the important and (to most of us) effective real-life message in the book about what it is to be transgender, and speculate on whether this is the final lampshade on Spotlight: Arcee.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #181 "Wipe-Out"
Avid Twincast listener Agonizer discusses this episode


We finish things off by totally wiping out with our extra time in a bragging rights segment, then take some parting shots at the not-surprising-but-still-totally-a-bummer pricing of Flame Toys' Drift figure. It's safe to say there's at least one upcoming release unlikely to be featured in this bragging rights segment in the future, but we will accept your kind donations or "review" samples.

The first legit voyager Starscream! Is this figure truly more than meets the eye-- of course it is-- but the podcast discusses just how it might be better than you think.

The return of Pretenders, a perfect peaceful minibot, and the Power of the Primes 'theme' falls into our optical field next... What happened to the rest of our headmasters and targetmasters? Why is Sluglsinger the last new figure in Titans Return (wave 6)? What's going on with the Titans Return Arcee and Titanmaster Ultra Magnus? What? What. What!

We take a few minutes to chew over the con exclusives, GI JOE, and what might be in store for us at HASCON. Has Hasbro started a Revolution?

Our SDCC quest goes into its final evolution as we take the last bit of the podcast or so to discuss IDW at SDCC, Transformers fiction, and the massive reveal of... another entire book starring Thundercracker (playing Starscream). We all hope that Josh-boyfriend and Buster are prominent characters as well. There was some announcement about something called a 'UNICRON' so we talk about what that could be, and finish with a little TF VS. ROM #1 and a lot of Optimus Prime #9 gushing. I'm hoping for a Jon Snow moment for our beloved issue's hero, but am afraid the ending will stay more Ned Stark...This issue was a can't miss.

Over at San Diego Comic Con 2017, brand team household names Ben Montano and John Warden were hosting the Hasbro Transformers panel, as Megatron keeps interjecting on screen with #StandWithMegatron messages as hacked by Soundwave. Presentation proper starts with Transformers: The Last Knight toys, followed by a presentation on Power of the Primes.

No full news was really revealed during the session, as most of what we learned was either already known or shown in the story from the breakfast event here. Follow the links below to join the relevant threads for discussion, and stay tuned for visual support soon!

Generations: POWER OF THE PRIMES

Final chapter of the Prime Wars trilogy. Combiner Wars, Titans Return - now going as big as they can get: Transformers Gods. Fan poll (Megatron skit interrupting again) was mentioned, as a candidate in the poll to Optimus Primal (some very cool art shown, including some from the Covenant of Primus). Each Prime has an ability and an artefact, but faded becoming legend - until now.

Mysterious characters called Prime Masters are spark bearers, connecting to others to bestow godlike powers.

Prime Masters
Skullgrin shown, as spark of Liege Maximo. Each comes with a collectable card, 12 in total. Cards are part of the story. Each Prime Master hides in a Decoy Suit (5$ price point), who turn into weapons.

Deluxe
Dreadwind & Blackwing combine into superjet Dreadwing

Jazz

Voyager
Starscream - also has 'secret powers', as seen in previous gallery post.

Leader
Rodimus Prime - able to evolve from Hot Rod to Rodimus Prime, as G1/ 1986 accurate as possible, Matrix can worn inside the chest, can be interchanged with other Leader sparks.

(Megatronus, Amalgamous Prime from Aligned Continuity both mentioned)

Prime Masters are new across the line play system: ride Legends, worn on chest by Deluxes, worn on arms by Voyagers, Matrix by Leaders.

More will be shown at Hascon, but some packaging mock-ups of art shown leading into the Machinima series part of the panel.

Q&A

Where is Titans Return Arcee? Hold tight, something might happen in Power of the Primes.

Will Masterpiece Dinobot see US release? Stay tuned.

Are we ever going to get a Bludgeon figure, in Decoy Suit style? Stay tuned.

Which is your favourite toy (kid question)? John: Cogman and Trypticon, I feed him every day. Ben: Leader Megatron.

Any plans for Decepticons in Masterpiece Movie Line? Great things in store, good reception of the line.

No plans for movie line exclusive repaints, like SDCC 2016 Dinobot set.

Any plans for classic Combiners, like Predaking, or IDW characters? Stay tuned, we know they're popular. No more plans for Nautica right now, we're aware of stories and interest.

What is planned for that Power of the Primes Starscream mold? Many, many things in store.

Response to QA issues with Trypticon, and limited distribution of the Titans Return boxsets? May have been isolated incidents, but it has been reported and it is being looked into right now. Warden has been made to do the splits. Same is being done for latter, with possible reissues down the line, but nothing confirmed.
