Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host ScottyP with xRotorstormx, Megatronus, and special guest Mr. Starscream. Listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #186 "NYCC 2017" 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.

NYCC 2017 was a momentous convention for many reasons - and Seibertron.com has you covered with our official photo galleries of the reveals. Make sure to share your hopes, thoughts, and highlights in the comments below.

Before jumping into NYCC proper, the Twincast crew must discuss news from across the Pacific: Takara's reveal of LGEX Grand Maximus and Greatshot, plus official images. These Transformers Victory characters have not yet seen a Generations-style update, and the Twincast is not only awed, but excited for things to come. We discuss the logistics of ordering these expensive imports, and the risks that come with Takara Tomy Mall's order minimums.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #186 "NYCC 2017"
There's a lot I don't understand here.


Takara also recently revealed the Encore release of God Fire Convoy. In addition to pouring over images upon images of this highly anticipated figure, some of us take an affectionate trip down RID memory lane, only to be rudely awakened by this reissue's obscene $265 price point. While we drool over the reissue's wonderful purple master sword, you can check out Seibertron's galleries of the original toy here.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #186 "NYCC 2017"
Resistance is futile. Except oh wait, he's expensive.


Hasbro came to NYCC prepared with some surprises: during their brand panel, which was livestreamed on Twitch, the Hasbro Brand Team revealed the NYCC 2017 exclusive Titans Return Grotusque. This Monsterbot was available briefly on Hasbro Toy Shop, and is now unavailable. We speak to our opinions on the execution of the reveal, experiences acquiring the figure, and thoughts on the figure itself. Want more? Check out Seibertron's official images, here, and our very own pictorial review, here.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #186 "NYCC 2017"
Release the beast! Monster. Whatever. He's cool, OK?


NYCC also yielded a glimpse of the speculated Titan Predaking's wings, with Seibertron's detailed galleries, here. Plus, we got our first look at the complete Combiner Wars-style Terrorcons team, galleries here, with full color mockups of each monstrous figure. As the crew speculates on which Terrocon is a retool of which Dinobot - some are more obvious than others - we look forward to the possibilities these beasts open for the future *cough* Piranacon *cough* Monstructor *cough*.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #186 "NYCC 2017"
Sinner-Snarl has a nice ring to it.


There are a few reveals the crew is less pleased about. The upcoming Power of the Primes Windcharger is lacking in the frontal lobe - and do we need a third Windcharger after suitable RTS/United and Combiner Wars versions? That Power of the Primes Rodimus Unicronus is a thing of beauty, but did Shattered Glass (the Transformers Club originated mirror universe where Autobots are evil and Decepticons are good) and Unicron really have to be a part of it? Finally, Volcanicus in color is, in short, underwhelming. While our critiques are withering, we hope to thaw our icy feelings by the time these figures hit retail.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #186 "NYCC 2017"
"I have the greatest mustache this side of Unicron."


Now it's time for a listener question - or rather, questions. First, Ironhidesh ask a rather simple question: "How do you fight burn out?" We provide our advice, largely centered around, well, finding your center. Next, WilliamJames88 asks a two pronged question about how online buyers cope with new figures stuck in cases with older releases, and how retail buyers work around today's spotty distribution. Again, we're ready to provide our strategies.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #186 "NYCC 2017"
Three heads, but only one per case.


One last question comes from SW's SilverHammer: "are there any Vehicles/alt modes that you'd like see that haven't been used, or are uncommon in the fiction/toyline?" SW's SilverHammer prefers classic cars and biplane-type Transformers. The Twincast crew couldn't agree more, but we also have our own answers, which allows to seque into a brief bragging rights involving another rarely seen alt-mode: trains.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #186 "NYCC 2017"
Ospreys are awesome!


But wait - ScottyP and Counterpunch made their way to TFcon in Washington DC from September 29th though October 1st, and had the opportunity to participate in that fan convention's podcast panel. Listen in as representatives from our very own Twincast Podcast engage other Transformers podcasters, discuss their experiences, and promote our very special community here at Seibertron.com. On these panels, you'll also hear representatives from WTF @ TFW, Radio Free Cybertron, TransMissions, and even Preorder 66. Our thanks again to the organizers of TFcon for inviting us to participate!

Welcome to the latest Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast Mainframes episode, this time devoted to issues #8 and #9 of IDW's Lost Light. New to Mainframes? Catch up on the last episode where we dissected Till All Are One 5-8. Join host ScottyP along with Counterpunch and Razorclaw0000 as we delve into the wretched hive of scum and villainy that is Troja Major!

Episode #185 "Carnage in Troja Major" 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.

Be aware that this episode is entirely about IDW Transformers comics and will completely spoil many storylines from several books, including many books before Lost Light Issues 8-9, so listening after catching up with the most recent material is recommended if you wish to avoid spoilers.

Covering both Issue 8 "An Axe to Break the Ice" and Issue 9 "Chasing the Infinite", the podcast episode digs into the character building, world building, and mythos building of Robert's books. If you haven't done so already, remember that you can check out Comics Admin Va'al's review for issue 8 here, and his thoughts on issue 9 here for another take on the story!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #185 "Carnage in Troja Major"
We're looking for the original plot


We dive in and examine Robert's writing and compare and contrast the effort into laying breadcrumbs for future stories while still focusing on the characters in the here and now. We analyze in depth if characters are behaving consistently with established norms and strive to make sense of a few of the revelations, piecing together Furman-era plot points with modern revelations.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #185 "Carnage in Troja Major"
Here's the wretched hive of scum and villainy


We spend particular time on the further development of Anode and Lug, with most of the cast finding them to be a further and new degree of unlikable - but is that on purpose? We also discuss other characters, including obscure Marvel UK villain Flame and what his inclusion might mean to the story.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #185 "Carnage in Troja Major"
#GetawayWasRight


The main plot of this short Troja Major story gets its due attention as well, with Nautica and Velocity's subquest to save Skids in the spotlight. Is their friendship bound to be shaken by the very nature of friendship itself? We discuss some of the heavier ideas (to some small degree of success) while also analyzing the particulars of the storytelling for this plot and how it was approached. Could a little less dialogue go a long way in letting the visuals tell the story, or is the lack of ambiguity provided by vocalized feelings a welcome sight? Tune in to find out what the Twincast crew thinks, but let us know what you think by replying to this post on the Energon Pub Forums!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #185 "Carnage in Troja Major"
Hey look, we don't cause IDW's printing delays, ok?


Finally, we speculate on the direction things are headed (#GetawayWasRight) as we return to the Lost Light (the ship, not the series). How will things be resolved and with level of certainty will that resolution actually occur?

We hope you enjoyed this latest episode of Twincast / Podcast spin-off Mainframes, and stay tuned for future episodes as the ongoing IDW Transformers saga continues to unfold! We'll see you in the discussion thread for this episode which you can join in on by replying to this very news post.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host ScottyP with RodimusConvoy13, xRotorstormx, and Megatronus. Listen in as we discuss the latest HASCON reveals, comics, and more.

Episode #184 "The Search for Alpha Trion" 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.

After a brief discussion on the many merits and isolated failings of the first ever HASCON, we jump right into what you want hear: toys. First up, the new Dinobots team, and their combined mode, Volcanicus (yes... that's its name). The spirit of The Beast is alive as generally positive thoughts give way under the weight of a brontosaurus.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #184 "The Search for Alpha Trion"
Give me combiner limbs, or give me death!


The leader evolution idea is brought to life with the samples Hasbro displayed, and we're gaga over the Orion Pax / Optimus Prime. The only question is, what are we going to do with those other, now obsolete Orion Pax toys? While you listen along, be sure to check out Seibertron's images of the Power of the Primes displays at the event, which also has a second part available here.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #184 "The Search for Alpha Trion"
The Kup repaint won't make sense, but let's do it.


We spend a good amount of time on Pretenders, and why the heck shouldn't we? They're adorable. What additional Pretender characters do we want in Power of the Primes, and do we foresee a more elaborate execution of this concept? You can check out more detailed images of Cloudburst in particular to see the probable 5 mm peg in our gallery of official product images provided by Hasbro.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #184 "The Search for Alpha Trion"
Genius!


The HASCON brand panels brought some surprises, and well, not-so-surprises. But there was also a selection of reveals from the Hall of Fame/VIP dinner! What do we make of the two Terrorcons revealed thus far, Moonracer, and the latest evolution leader, Optimus Primal / Optimal Optimus? Our search for Alpha Trion begins here - nevermind that he was in the last Generations line.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #184 "The Search for Alpha Trion"
Dino arms!!!


After a quick pass over more G2 Megatron/Archforce from Takara, and some lamenting about what wasn't displayed on the HASCON show floor (where's the RID love??), we get our comics-talk on. IDW Unicron speculation starts us out with more teases given during Hascon about next year's Next Big Thing for the IDW Transformers and Hasbro Universe.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #184 "The Search for Alpha Trion"
One of the first non-Scotty-monologue IDW Unicron discussions on the show ever!


Recent issues of First Strike come under the lens next, with mixed opinions about the effectiveness of the event, but mostly positive vibes come from the team on this crossover. We also spend a little more time with Alpha Trion, given the happenings in Optimus Prime #10, then take a quick but magnificent look at Lost Light #9.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #184 "The Search for Alpha Trion"
Best. Quip. Ever.


Time for an excellent Listener Question from Seibertron user SIllyMcGilly: "Since it's around that time for a tenth anniversary of Transformers Animated, what figures out of that line do you guys like best?"

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #184 "The Search for Alpha Trion"
Transform, and rise up!


For the second part of the same listener question, which asks about a desire for Animated reissues, the answers take a surprising turn as we end with an immense shout out to occasional Transtopia poster Bad Lamprey's Animated customs, including his "heavily scratch-built" Mixmaster:

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host Megatronus with Seibertron himself and special guest QBKiller94. Listen in as we discuss the first ever HASCON.

Episode #183 "The Road to HASCON" 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.

HASCON 2017 was a truly momentous event, and Seibertron.com was on the scene at the Providence Convention Center. Check out our official YouTube channel for coverage of all panels and events, as well as Seibertron's extensive galleries of the show floor, new product reveals, and much more!

On the road from HASCON: Megatronus, Seiberton, and QBKiller94 jump right in after leaving the convention. How was the overall experience? Did we enjoy the show, and shift towards a more experience-centric convention? Most importantly, was HASCON worth the price of entry?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #183 "The Road to HASCON"
Can I HAS huge sign?


Once Seibertron has been safely delivered to the airport, Megatronus and QBKiller94 continue their sojourn. We walk listeners through the larger convention layout and our observations about attendee volume & composition, as well as our pleasant panel experience - no FOMO here.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #183 "The Road to HASCON"
I have a feeling we're all gonna fit.


We drill into a much more Transformers-specific discussion. Power of the Primes was on full display, including the new Orion Pax / Optimus Prime. Are we down with the Dinobots and their combiner form, Volcanicus? When are we going to hear more about the mighty Predaking?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #183 "The Road to HASCON"
The whole is definitely greater than the sum of its parts.


We get to the Transformers area itself: what was featured, what dynamic displays caught our eye, and what cool experiences was the Transformers brand dishing out throughout the weekend?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #183 "The Road to HASCON"
Talk about Power of the Primes...


We couldn't end the show without saying a fond farewell to Providence, Rhode Island, a friendly, accessible city that made the convention as welcoming and enjoyable as any Hasbro brand. Bon voyage, and until next time.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #183 "The Road to HASCON"
Can I get these year-round?


But wait, there's more! The show closes out with an interview featuring Ben Montano and John Warden from Hasbro's Transformers Brand Team. Megatronus and Seibertron ask their burning questions in this special segment, which is also available on the Seibertron.com Youtube channel. Enjoy the interview, and our thanks as always to Hasbro for helping make it happen.



Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #183 "The Road to HASCON"
I think we just found a convention!

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.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #182 "Great Expectations"
He was a skater bot
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?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #182 "Great Expectations"
You think you like Topspin? You're gonna love me!


Until next time, we're the Twincast!

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.

Click the image to check out the full Seibertron.com gallery for Titan Class Trypticon!


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.

This was it, a huge weekend for Transformers fans to finally get some new information about the brand. It's been a long time coming. What particularly tickled our fancy from the preview, breakfast, and panel? Listen in to find out as we discuss...and be sure to check out the Seibertron.com SDCC 2017 Events galleries to see even more awesome photos from the event!

Power of the Primes Rodimus Prime and the new 'evolution gimmick'. Is he the flame-decoed space winnebago of our dreams?

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.

Next up was the somewhat underwhelming deluxe class reveals: Jazz, Dreadwing and Blackwing.

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.

You did it! You made it to the end, and probably saw the second episode of the new season of Game of Thrones while I was focused on doing this news write-up. Please do not share any spoilers!

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. Join host Scotty P as he hangs out with Twincast Pros Megatronus & Rotorstorm. Listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #179 "Forever Is a Long Time Coming" 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.

We kick off the show with our usual case of scattered brains, but eventually home in on one of this year's SDCC quasi-exclusives: Masterpiece Optimus Prime. Available first at the show, this figure will see distribution at Toys R Us. Are we psyched, or will we bid this dear mold farewell?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #179 "Forever Is a Long Time Coming"
But new box!


Speaking of Masterpiece, Takara Tomy Mall is coming out with some interesting MP cassettes: Stripes, Nightstalker, Wing Thing and Enemy. We've got the full scoop, but wonder what other cassettes, and MPs, might be in the pipeline.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #179 "Forever Is a Long Time Coming"
Drool drool drool.


The Club is again in the news with their unrealized Club ideas featured at Pete's RoboCon. We discuss our favorites, and wonder whether the coming year might have represented a zenith for the Club given its recent string of off years. Maybe, but hey, cool toys.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #179 "Forever Is a Long Time Coming"
Winner winner chicken dinner.


Since we're on the topic of conventions, how about a little Hascon for you? We are... really unclear how this is gonna go. Like, totally in the dark. Is this thing for fans, families, buyers? Which fandom will reign supreme in this brand battle royale?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #179 "Forever Is a Long Time Coming"
Guess we'll just have to wait and see.


We're back to SDCC, and the true convention exclusives that have and have not yet been revealed, and sense the absence of a large kaiju. We also talk about the recently revealed Walgreens exclusive, and the irksome requirements to complete the clone pairs.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #179 "Forever Is a Long Time Coming"
I've been blinded by its sheer beauty.


The toy talk continues with the upcoming Takara Legends figures we haven't yet seen pictures for - and for that reason, move on to Power of the Primes related rumors, and the delightful eHobby blue convoy exclusives which are, in a word, awesome.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #179 "Forever Is a Long Time Coming"
Now THAT'S a Prime.


Wait - we're not done! Comics finally come to fore, and we get talking about Lost Light #7 (review here) and Till All Are One #11 (review here). With Till All Are One approaching its conclusion and Lost Light having just finished its first story arc in earnest, how is the crew feeling about these books? Just like with one of the issues in question, the opinions don't all end up being the same!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #179 "Forever Is a Long Time Coming"
Sadscream is sad.


Bragging rights - who got cool stuff (everyone)? Also, check out staff member Cobotron's pictorial review of the amazingly awesome MP38, here.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. Transformers: The Last Knight is out now, so join host Scotty P as he hangs out with a merry band that includes Twincast Pros Megatronus, Rotorstorm, Seibertron, Tigertrack, Razorclaw0000, and Mr. Starscream for a discussion of the movie. Did we love it? Should you watch it? You know how to start answering these questions, but just in case you don't, here's how to download:

Episode #178 "The Last Knight: A Twincast Review" 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.


Massive big spoiler warning!

Don't listen to the show until you've watched the movie if you don't want to be spoiled!


Unicron. There, we told you there'd be spoilers. The crew discusses their theater experience - or lack thereof - along with their preferred format. Who went to a special Kabam showing? Who got Optimus Prime Time perks? Did we go for the immersive IMAX experience, and will we go back for a second viewing?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #178 "The Last Knight: A Twincast Review"
Thanks for the gif, Kabam!


Seibertron gives us on overview of his red carpet experience in Chicago: the stars, the lights, the interviews, and of course, the afterparty. Being press never felt so good. You can find the full gallery of the event here, and Seibertron's summary of the event here.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #178 "The Last Knight: A Twincast Review"
Who's that handsome fella??


We kick off our discussion of the actual movie with, well, the beginning of the movie. We examine the Arthurian opening battle, which sets the tone for the rest of the movie. Is there a Gaelic translation for Bayhem?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #178 "The Last Knight: A Twincast Review"
Robots. Knights. Robot Knights. This movie has everything.


The crew can't talk about The Last Knight without talking about Quintessa, MacGuffins, and their relationship to the aligned continuity. Is the integration of ideas from across the Transformers multiverse a welcome addition to the Bayverse? Oh, do we have thoughts.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #178 "The Last Knight: A Twincast Review"
Solus, is that you?


Cogman. Squeeks. Hot Rod. Baby Dinobots? We discuss each addition to the Transformers movieverse roster, and come to a rare consensus: Cogman may very well be the best thing about this movie. Also, we love headmasters.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #178 "The Last Knight: A Twincast Review"
Seriously. Our hero.


We finally return to the Unicron question - and where the movie franchise can (im)possibly go from that revelation. We also dive deep into what isn't said. Is Megatron just Galvatron? Has he been resurrected from his severed head in the previous movie? Don't think too hard about it.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #178 "The Last Knight: A Twincast Review"
You, uh, got a little schmutz on your face there, buddy.


The crew wraps up with some final thoughts. How do we rate The Last Knight compared to the previous Michael Bay TF films? What stuck with us? What are we looking forward to as we forge ahead into this brave, new, post-The Last Knight world? ONWARD TO THE BUMBLEBEE MOVIE!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #178 "The Last Knight: A Twincast Review"
Sting like a literal bee.


Thanks for listening in. Transformers: The Last Knight is in theaters now so be sure to leave a comment by replying to this post in our Energon Pub Forums to let us know if you agree, disagree, or extra super know we are wrong about the movie.

Whatever your stance, have fun at the cinema!

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. While we await the release of The Last Knight, host Scotty P sits down with Counterpunch and special guest, Seibertron.com News Staff member Williamjames88 to talk about his recent experience visiting Kabam! studios in Vancouver, BC.

Episode #177 "Forged To Mic" 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.

As mentioned, our very own Williamjames88 had the chance to visit the studios of Kabam!, creators of Transformers: Forged to Fight, which is available now to download from the iTunes App Store and Google Play. We start out talking about the visit by taking a quick look at what the game is and learn fun facts about Vancouver. While we chat away, be sure to check out his written run down of the visit, plus a transcription of some Q&A time with the Kabam team, plus yet more other fun information about the game!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #177 "Forged To Mic"
Humor to go along with your cool Transformers trip? Why not!


One of the main topics of our discussion is about the transformations of the characters within the game, and how the creators approached it for a platform that's often more restrictive than a console or gaming PC. Counterpunch and Scotty recollect old PS1 era gaming magazines, N64 Beast Wars, and learn that Forged to Fight has nothing to do with these. Plus, we talk about the potential of playing the game on a larger screen.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #177 "Forged To Mic"
Beats the generic painting things in your office.


One character that the folks at Kabam were excited about is the iteration of Hot Rod from The Last Knight. With Hot Rod making his way into the game recently, we discuss why they felt like this was a standout character.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #177 "Forged To Mic"
Je suis "Street Fighter". I don't know French, I'm sorry.


Repaints: some fans love them, while others are continually frustrated by Hasbro's desire to stretch their budget for tooling and keep consumer costs somewhat controlled. We don't talk about that in this episode, but we do talk about the challenges the creators face in trying to bring in characters traditionally known as "Repaints" like Thundercracker and Skywarp into the game through a rewarding method. While we ponder that, we also consider if move-sets matter in this case, or if a skin can be just a skin.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #177 "Forged To Mic"
Above: Rhinox crushing your hopes for Soundblaster.


We wrap up the Forged to Fight talk with thoughts about how long the game can go. With a story to tell that has no ending and just constant "middles" given its very nature, what might the team have in store for players as time goes on? With a solid gameplay engine and even awards rolling in for the project, the future looks bright for mobile fighting fun with your favorite Transformers characters.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #177 "Forged To Mic"


We then conclude a somewhat shorter than normal episode by just hanging out and talking about some of the latest and greatest Transformers toys, with no real set agenda for discussion. Sit back, hang out, and hear thoughts from the crew about LG Magna Convoy and how that mold is holding up, Wave 2 Deluxes from The Last Knight, and yes, Scotty P finally got around to opening up Godbomber. Finally.
