We start with what rocked our 2015: toys, media, personal acquisitions... Our highlights may surprise you. But then again, you might have seen some of that big green coming.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #133 "2015 Superlatives"
That face says it all. No, I'm not talking about the kid.


Next, we switch up the format with a battery of listener questions:

Ionrac asks: if you were putting together a display, on a single, if large, shelf space (tall enough for Fort Max or Metroplex), how would you approach it?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #133 "2015 Superlatives"
We all just want to zoom cars around cities, really.


Stuartmaximus asks: are you super excited for The Force Awakens & are you going to see it on opening day?

Seibertron.com Staff Member williamjames-88 asks: with Hasbro back in the business of reissuing G1 toys, what should they get down to reissuing in the coming years?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #133 "2015 Superlatives"
Daily Double: This news-post picture addresses multiple listener questions.


We interrupt our regularly scheduled program (actually, the show segue is unusually natural!) for some holiday bragging rights. What deals did the Twincast snag this holiday season? We had our eyes on the prize this time around.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #133 "2015 Superlatives"
Trypticon: triple-changer AND tri-lingual. That's a good dino.


Unite Warriors Grand Galvatron is turning a few heads. The crazy assortment of Combiner Wars redecoes and retools is nutty, but is it attractive enough to buy? Listen to hear the Twincast's verdict on this set.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #133 "2015 Superlatives"
The comic helps, and almost makes sense!


We polish off this episode with our thoughts on the recently released Combiner Wars Combaticons. Long story short: awesome-sauce.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #133 "2015 Superlatives"
The B Team. (The B, uh, stands for Bruticus.)


Don't forget, the show only gets better if you tell us how. Drop us a review on iTunes and be sure to tell us what you love, what you hate, and what you want to hear!

Not on the show to give your take? Probably not, so don't forget to keep the discussion going on the Seibertron.com Energon Pub Forums by simply replying to this post!

The latest issue of Bloomberg Business Weekly features a cover story about Hasbro getting the Disney Princess deal, which spells big money for Hasbro and a big loss for Mattel.

The cover image is an awesome picture introducing the princesses to Hasbro figures with Robots in Disguise Optimus Prime being smothered by Elsa from Frozen. We also get a quick rundown chart of how much money Transfromers made at retail in 2014, compared to other toy brands at both Hasbro and Mattel. While the Transformers brand beat Star Wars (390 M$ over 377 M$, something that is sure not to happen this year) we can see that the brand iself is still trailing behind My Little Pony, Nerf, Play-Doh and Monopoly. There is a Playskool brand as well and it is unclear where Rescue Bots would be counted in this chart.

Remember when cereal boxes had a little surprise in them? Well, this is kind of like that instead you get a free Transformers toy... using a coupon sent through the mail.

Kellogg's has teamed up with Hasbro for a special promotion. The details are written on the box pictured below. It seems each specially marked cereal box under the Kellogg's brand (like Fruit Loops) has a special code inside which can then be entered on kelloggs.ca/hasbro. You will then write your shipping address for a 15$ free toy coupon to be delivered. A maximum of 5 coupons per address are allowed. The box identifies Transformers as being one of the main toy brands which can be picked offering One Step Robots in Disguise Bumblebee as an example. Bumblebee is also featured on the front of the box as well. There are 40,000 free toy coupons available. There are also 100,000 10$ off Hasbro products coupons which can also be exchanged for the pin numbers (if the user doesn't want any of the choices available)

This offer is available to all Canadians and Canadian addresses. There is still no word whether or not a similar promotion will be happening in the US or anywhere else.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host ScottyP, Megatronus, Tigertrack, Counterpunch, and Jon3.0 - listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.

Episode #132 “Watch Out For The Stinger" is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on iTunes and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

We start with Sins of the Wreckers #1 - you can read our own Seibertron.com review here. We gush over the art the story, the twists. Wreck and rule - spoilers ahead.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #132 "Watch Out For The Stinger"
Hustlin'.


We have More Than Meets The Eye #47 on our minds (review here). Cyclonus and Tailgate are entangled in a plot to eliminate a fellow Lost Lighter. Will they reunite at the very moment they are farthest apart?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #132 "Watch Out For The Stinger"
Getting the band back together.


The big toy news is the announcement of Titan Class, Titans Returns Fortress Maximus. As the Twincast crew pores over the leaked images and (alleged) sales slide for Fort Max and deducts release dates and base modes, one thing seems to be clear: we will be buying it.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #132 "Watch Out For The Stinger"
Fort Max heeds the call of Hasbro's Marketing Department.


Fan Vote? Don’t mind if we do! In the tradition of Windblade and Victorian, Hasbro opened up voting for the next Titan Class figure to us, the loyal and oh-so opinionated fans. Who did the Twincast vote for?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #132 "Watch Out For The Stinger"
#VoteTrypticon


In more Titans Returns news, we have images of the upcoming Powermaster Optimus Prime, a heavy retool of Combiner Wars Leader Class Ultra Magnus (Seibertron.com Galleries can be found here). Is the Twincast impressed? Listen and find out.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #132 "Watch Out For The Stinger"
Fancy Photoshop!


Another reveal: Combiner Wars G2 Bruticus, monkey arms and all. Some eagerly await his arrival… others demand G2 Defensor. Don’t worry Tigertrack, it’s coming.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #132 "Watch Out For The Stinger"
Swindle Lives!


Mini-Cons, Fracture, Overload, Crazybolt… RID seems to have it all. Are these your go-to Saturday morning companions, or merely oddball additions to your TF:Prime shelves?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #132 "Watch Out For The Stinger"
Beast mode? Let’s go with ‘puking frog’.


We’re going to skip over what Counterpunch calls ‘Hipster Garbage’ and right onto to Million Publishing Dogfight and Runamuck. Tiny robots… hefty price tag. Will the Twincast crew be picking these guys up?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #132 "Watch Out For The Stinger"
Prices runamuck. That’s right, I went there.


We finish up the Twincast with some bragging rights. What did everyone get since the last recording?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #132 "Watch Out For The Stinger"
Something to be thankful for.

New Writers for Transformers 5 Script, Akiva Goldmans Moves to Other Hasbro / Paramount Projects

Via entertainment media website Deadline, we have some news regarding the Paramount project for Transformers 5 and the expanded universe led by Akiva Goldsman - who appears to have been moved from the direct writing of the script for the next movie, and will be heading a similar project for the G.I. Joe and Micronauts franchises instead. Read more on this below, and head here for the full story!

After their Akiva Goldsman-led Writers Room experiment led to at least three movie ideas to extend Transformers, Hasbro and Paramount have set Goldsman to supervise a Writers Room for their G.I. Joe movie series. And they will go the same route with Goldsman to draft ideas for the Hasbro property Micronauts, with Goldsman supervising that as well.

This change of duties means Goldsman will supervise but won’t write the next Transformers installment. Paramount now is negotiating with Writers Room participants Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (Iron Man) and Black Hawk Down scribe Ken Nolan to write the script together. That course change was cemented by Paramount, Hasbro, Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg and producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Don Murphy.

Relax, take a seat and enjoy as we discuss all the latest news, toys, comics and more in the world of Transformers.

Episode #131 "The Darkest Timeline" is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes, and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

We start this episode off with some hot off the press news from the Transformers Collectors Club. With just under 5 months to go, the Botcon 2016 brochure is now available. We'll run through our thoughts on package pricing, exclusives and the events taking place in Louisville, KY next year.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #131 "The Darkest Timeline"

Of course, with the brochure now available, we can only assume registration is on the horizon...so be prepared!

Up next, MTMTE #46 was released this week along with a preview for MTMTE #47. Tune in to hear our comic aficionados break down the lastest happenings and hopes for the future storyline.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #131 "The Darkest Timeline"


After being delayed a bit, Masterpiece Tracks has finally started to arrive and many of us are anxiously awaiting this beautiful blue vette. ScottyP was lucky enough to get Tracks before the rest of the cast, so you'll have to tune in to hear his in hand thoughts on this latest MP release.

In other Masterpiece news, coming on the heels of Ironhide is none other than Ratchet.

A new wave of Robots in Disguise mini-cons have been revealed along with a bevy of interesting animation renders and names within the latest update for the RID smartphone app

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #131 "The Darkest Timeline"


And now it's time for something a little different. Counterpunch has a special topic tonight that you surely do not want to miss. With "Classics" or Generations styled figures now being the main focus of the Transformers toy line for Hasbro's collector focused branding, are us old-timers with a decade's worth of these toys already thoroughly occupied? Within this framework, the cast also discusses the new Robots in Disguise line and our thoughts on its place in the collecting world.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #131 "The Darkest Timeline"


Moving on...let the rumor mill begin! Recently, Hasbro registered the trademarks for CybertronCon, currently the name of their Transformers convention in Asia. Does this mean anything? (No.) Is there a change to Botcon coming down the pike? (Probably not.) The Twincast has their take on this latest "development".

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #131 "The Darkest Timeline"


This episode's listener question comes from SW's Silverhammer and it has to do with some amusing knock offs. Will Dolphins fulfill their bloodlust for Transformer podcaster souls? Is Overlord and Star Saber's baby better off in the Korean box or the original Russian? What on Earth is this paragraph talking about?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #131 "The Darkest Timeline"


Of course, we close out this episode with a round of bragging rights! What have the guys (and this gal) gotten their hands on since last episode? Have I opened anything lately, and why not? You'll have to tune in to find out.
