Folks, we have a date! The second half of the first season of the Netflix documentary The Toys that Made US - focusing this time on Star Trek, Lego, Hello Kitty, and our very own Transformers - finally has a release confirmation for May 25th 2018, uploaded to all countries that have their own version of Netflix across the globe!

The first half, you'll remember, featured the likes of Barbie, Masters of the Universe, GI Joe, Star Wars toys, and was extremely well received in both fandoms of the respective franchises and the mainstream audiences tuning in to the show, to the point that it has already been renewed for a second season, as we reported here. And remember, this second half will not only feature the likes of Michael Bay, Peter Cullen, Bob Budiansky.. but also our site owner Seibertron himself! Tune in next month, and share your thoughts on the discussion boards.

He just needs a hug


Following up, we discussed availability and in-hand impressions of (currently) Toys'R'Us-exclusive Studio Series Thundercracker. We speculate on eventual availability at other chains, after-market prices, and discussion of the figure itself.

We then take a quick hop to Takara-land and discuss the recent Movie The Best figures as well as how Movie the Best and Studio Series fit together as a whole. We talk through some of the gems in the line, and the future of the movie toys. The cast works together here to find out if both MB and Studio Series can live together in harmony on your shelf.

Closing out our movie discussion, Scotty gives us a great in-hand preview of MPM-5 Barricade. While not generally available yet, many of our sponsors have this figure in stock or have available pre-orders.

Next, Starscream gives us an overview of Dairycon, which recently held its 18th annual convention in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. We discuss the dealer room, growth of the convention, exclusives, and general atmosphere, comparing it to other unofficial fan-run conventions. Might there even be some luck involved? Maybe the kind that's drawn!?

Puns... everywhere!


We next touch on some listener discussion from Episode 197. In this segment we talk about a potential timeline for IDW's reboot, and the merits and drawbacks of both immediately rebooting and waiting.

We bring the show to a close with some quick discussion on some recent toy news, including the availability of Authentics at Market 6 retailers, an Armada-inspired Nemesis Prime, and the long-awaited release of LG-EX Greatshot and Grand Maximus. We wrap things up with a quick "Bragging Rights" section.

Via Kabam's official page for their mobile game Transformers: Forged to Fight, we have a new udpate for a new playable character in the game, this time from the Autobot ranks of old: Blaster! The full Bot Intel Report has been mirrored below, and we have a short trailer and image embedded too - check it all out.

Add Blaster to your ultimate squad April 12th at 10AM PDT!
About Blaster:

Faction: Autobot

Class: Tech

Only one Autobot brings the noise and drops crazy beats – Blaster! Some of his tunes may hurt your audio receptors, but you can count on him to save the day with his superior sound system.
Stats and Abilities:

2-Star:

Health: 1679
Attack: 156
Max Rating: 551

3-Star:

Health: 4124
Attack: 328
Max Rating: 1314

4-Star:

Health: 10718
Attack: 851
Max Rating: 3539

Basic Abilities: Amplify, Interference, Shielding

Amplify

Each time Blaster uses a Special Attack he gains an Amp Charge up to a maximum of 10 charges.
Sonic Attacks used in Blaster’s Basic Ranged and Special Attacks deal 5~6% more damage for each Amp Charge on Blaster.

Basic Ranged Attacks

70~80% chance to inflict Interference, lowering Ranged Damage by 10~20% and decreasing Projectile Speed for 10 seconds.

Heavy Attack

100% chance to inflict Shock, dealing 30% of Attack over 5 seconds.
Shocks are 20% stronger for each Amp Charge on Blaster.

Block

Activates a Shield, reducing incoming Damage by 6~15% while holding Block and for 0.2 seconds once released.
Blaster’s Shield lasts 50% longer for each Amp Charge on him.

Signature Ability – Absorption Shield

Blaster’s Shielding system can be upgraded to absorb incoming energy attacks and repair damage. A similar upgrade was requested by his fellow Autobots for their audio receptors as an answer to his taste in music.

While Shielded

Blaster’s Shield allows him to shrug off the impact of Basic Energy Ranged Attacks and reduces a further 20% of incoming Energy Damage. Additionally Energy Attacks that hit Blaster while his Shielding is up have a 40% chance to instantly Repair Blaster for 7~17% of the opponent’s Attack Rating, if the attack is a Special Attack he repairs double that amount instead.

Special Attacks:

Special 1 – Amped

Turn up the volume, start the beats.

Blaster gains up to 2 additional Amp Charge(s).
60% chance to grant a Power Gain Buff, generating 30% of Max Power over 10 seconds.

Special 2 – Steeljaw

Blasters speakers won’t be the only thing roaring.

100% chance to inflict Interference, lowering Ranged Damage by 15~30% and decreasing projectile speed for 20 seconds.
7% Chance for each Amp Charge on Blaster to Stun the opponent for 3 seconds.

Special 3 – Boom Boxers

The hits just keep on coming.

100% chance to inflict an Attack Debuff reducing the Opponent’s Attack Rating by 10% for 20 seconds. Blaster then inflicts an additional Attack Debuff for each Amp Charge on him.

Synergy Bonuses:

Mutual – Allies – Ultra Magnus, Arcee

+2~8% Armor.

Mutual – Enemies – Soundwave

+2~8% Attack.

Outgoing – Shield Amp – Soundwave, Mirage, Rhinox

1.5~10% Damage Reduction while Shielded.

Outgoing – Brain Drain – Shockwave

Shockwave generates 1~3 Energy Charges at the start of the fight and every 25 seconds.

Incoming – Brain Gain – Shockwave

25% Increase to Attack against Demolition Bots. Shockwave only gets this benefit if all bots on his team have this synergy.

Strong Match-ups:

Galvatron – Galvatron greatly relies on his Ranged Damage, something Blaster is an expert at reducing.
Soundwave – Blaster is able to Repair himself with his own Reflected Projectiles. Let the Rivalry Begin.

Weak Match-ups:

Bumblebee GS – The little gold speedster will break through Blaster’s Shielding, inflicting Shock damage on him everytime he blocks.
Bludgeon – This tanky warrior does not use energy projectiles and will not allow Blaster to Repair when struck by his projectiles.

Recommended Modules for Blaster:

Laser Guidance Module

This module will greatly increase Blaster’s Ranged Damage and Speed, a perfect fit for a bot that can do the inverse to his opponent.

Repair Module

The Repair Module will add to the constant Repairs he gets with his Signature Ability unlocked.

Check it out below!

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode harkens back to days long past as it features your host Counterpunch along with Razorclaw quadruple zeroes and Tiiigertraackk. Our trio discusses a few of the latest news topics, but then delves into some places and questions that will challenge current and long time fans to really establish their ground rules for some of the Transformers long taken for granted history, abilities, and more. Who's right? Who's not? Is everyone wrong and you're right? We welcome your respectful and disrespectful discourse afterward in the thread.

Episode #197 "Alpha Lyin' and Liege Factimo" 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.

In the first 1/3 of the show the crew talks recent news. At first we rattle on about the recent in-hand images of the Transformers Movie Studio Series toys, that fans are finding them in stores.... and our current feelings for the line based on the new images ( nobody on the show had any experience of their own with them yet).

At that point we delve into the sad news for all toy collectors: all US Toys R' Us Stores are closing and the experiences that we've had with TRU recently, including during the liquidation sales starting. Will this change our buying habits? Are we broken up about it? Hmmm...

Transformers News: Twincast/Podcast Episode #197 "Alpha Lyin' and Liege Factimo"

The final news pieces we discuss was this planet-sized bomb shell dropped by IDW onto current TF comic fiction fans... and it's not just the fact that Alex Milne can draw a kick @$$ Unicron..

Transformers News: Twincast/Podcast Episode #197 "Alpha Lyin' and Liege Factimo"

And now to the really fun stuff....


Think about what you think the correct answer is to these questions...and then take us to task on our responses...

1.) Transformers have been at war for over 4 million years our time, according to records. Does that make them really bad at war, really good at war, or serving a larger purpose to the galaxy/universe as a whole?

2.) What should everyone consider to be canon? What do you consider to be canon? Can everyone have their own official canon? Or do you just pull an Ultra Magnus and, "...not deal with that now...?"

3.) Why don't more Transformers change alt-modes more often? Do they not have the ability? Does it take to much energy? Is it...TABOO!? ...wear out your t-cog? Let us know are you functionist in your thinking, or do you think everyone is alt mode exempt as long as it's not effecting someone else's happiness? Okay that really doesn't have to do with changing alt mode forms more often, generally...

Transformers News: Twincast/Podcast Episode #197 "Alpha Lyin' and Liege Factimo"



4.) What are the possibilities that a Transformer has with it's mechanical components (keep it clean)? When they create or grow weapons in themselves (like missiles, arm cannons) and then use them is this painful, and life-threatening due to shooting your own life at another Transformer (your energy) to possible make them lose more of theirs? And where do fire-breathing Transformers create the fire that they use at will? Especially when being on a planet with not much carbon-life. What's the limit on Brainstorm's and Ironfist's endless experiments with 'super weaponry'? Why aren't all the Decepticons dead from 'glass gas induced structural failure'?

Transformers News: Twincast/Podcast Episode #197 "Alpha Lyin' and Liege Factimo"



As you can imagine these questions led to some pretty fun conversations. Counterpunch put us through the ringer with this one, but what we'd really like to hear is what you think about these topics that maybe you never really took the time to think about before. Because maybe you didn't care...

...but we cared enough to try, and we think you should too! After you've listened to the episode, yes we throw in just a couple of bragging rights at the end, please tell us your ideas and feel free to tell us about what we managed to forget.

We have new in hand images of the highly anticipated Transformers Studio Series Leader Class Grimlock. This figure was first revealed earlier this year by Hasbro at Toy Fair 2018, which we reported on back in February. These images from 神回十六夜 and 模玩麦片周 on weibo definitely show him in a different light (literally) from the amazing images we previously saw from NOTRAB a while ago. We have also included those high resolution images at the bottom for you to compare how the same figure could look. Also we translated Notrab's thoughts on the figure below, which he posted on Chinese social media site Weibo along with a video review with various comparisons on Chinese video website Youku.com.

Here's the awesome Google translation of what NOTRAB wrote on Weibo regarding Studio Series Leader Class Grimlock.

NOTRAB wrote:Studio Series leader-level steel locks, deformation steps and parts count without dizziness but the deformation process is very amazing, the human type made two complete faucets to restore the movie and one of them is the biggest highlight in the dragon type hiding, the painting style is also Very satisfied... finally got a right movie steel lock


Seibertron.com has translated Google's translation as "Studio Series leader-level Grimlock: transformation steps and parts count without confusion but the transformation process is very amazing. The robot mode has two complete dinosaur heads which movie Grimlock's character model had. Those heads are one of the biggest highlights in the dinosaur mode transformation process. In addition, the painting style is also very satisfying. We finally get a properly done movie style Grimlock!" If you have a better translation, just let us know what you would suggest NOTRAB meant.
