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

Episode #175 "Bayhem" 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.

Yes, that's right, the Seibertron.com Twincast/Podcast is now available on Google Play! Be sure to subscribe today if this is your podcast platform of choice.

First up on the chopping block is Transformers: The Last Knight, coming to a theater near you in just one short month. There's a new international trailer out, and we dissect it for new details, plot points, and anything else we can spoil for our (soon to be not so) loyal audience.


We need a trailer for this trailer...


In the context of the trailer, we mention a few interesting articles in Empire magazine, including an interview with TLK producer Ian Bryce and some of the TLK writers. What tidbits do we take away, and how does this new information color our understanding of how the TLK sausage is made?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #175 "Bayhem"
Surprise!!! It's Bumblebee!


After our thorough discussion of the movie itself, we move on to one of the quirkier aspects of modern movie culture: promos. There's the Chinese Coca-Cola raffle, the Singaporean Coca-Cola steelcase, and Japan's 7-11 Dark Optimus exclusive. Also, international distribution is weird. We're totally feeling the zaniness.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #175 "Bayhem"
Product placement to the rescue!


This all leads to a discussion on how these contests, and international distribution generally, is a function of Transformers being marketed to an overseas population where dedicated collecting is less a phenomenon. With a Screen Rant piece about Wonder Woman as our guide, we achieve total brand awareness.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #175 "Bayhem"
That's good marketing.


On to comics: specifically, Lost Light #5. You can find the Seibertron.com review of this issue here. How does the Twincast crew feel about the Functionist Universe, and are we on board with Rung's newly revealed abilities? Where's Orion Pax? Is Terminus a good addition, or does he just need to shut up?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #175 "Bayhem"
Today shall now and forever be known as Brainstorm Day.


Optimus Prime #7 is next on the chopping block. You can find the Seibertron.com review of the issue here. We take a slight turn towards the political (in a non-partisan matter, we assure you), and discuss bias and the way that real world concerns seep into the content of this surprisingly compelling story. Also, Jazz.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #175 "Bayhem"
That Matrix is definitely messing with Optimus' brain.


We conclude with our freestyle segment: what's everyone going to bring to the table this time? Rotorstorm's all about Toxitron, Dr. Va'al points us to Lindsay Ellis & her TF-related video essays, Mr. Starscream's planning his own con, and Megatronus <3 Sharkticons.


This is another seriously brilliant video essay!

Transformers Armada, Cybertron and Energon all together in the Ultimate Trilogy!

Armada Saga
On the planet Cybertron, war rages between Autobots and Decepticons over a smaller race called Mini-Cons, who enhance the power of the Transformers they link with.

Millions of years later, two young humans awaken the Mini-Cons, bringing the conflict of Optimus Prime and Megatron to Earth!

Energon Saga
Ten years after the epic Unicron battle, there is finally an unsettling peace between the Autobots and Decepticons. Working together they form a secret alliance with human kind to find the rare and precious substance Energon which they soon discover on Earth. Lurking in the distance are mysterious forces that have honed in on this discovery and will stop at nothing to gain control of the Energon at all costs, and only an elite team of Autobots empowered to combine their robotic forms and strengths into an ultra force can save the planet from total destruction.

Cybertron Saga
CYBERTRON, the TRANSFORMERS' home planet, is on the brink of destruction as an ominous Black Hole looms. In order to save their world, the TRANSFORMERS embark upon an intergalactic scavenger hunt across the universe searching for the lost Cyber Planet Keys. The evil DECEPTICONS, villains unlike any you have seen before, are in a race against the heroic AUTOBOTS to recover the Cyber Planet Keys - keys that have the power to unlock the CYBERTRON planet itself, creating the greatest TRANSFORMER the universe has ever seen! The battle will span the galaxy in a race to wield the all powerful keys and save their home world of CYBERTRON from certain doom!

Kup has been there, done that, got the T-shirt. There's almost nothing this veteran warhorse hasn't seen or experienced - so when it comes to swapping stories his fellow Autobots don't even try to compete.
 
Gruff and grizzled, Kup is forever waxing nostalgic about this battle or that narrow escape. Even if only half of his stories are true, it's still a packed life he's lived. One thing's for sure - he's a born survivor.

Despite his dreary, fatalistic certainty that the big shutdown is all that awaits them, Dead End spends more time than any 'bot this side of Sunstreaker making sure he looks his bright shiny best.
 
The "best-looking wreck in the auto junkyard" as Stunticon boss Motormaster likes to say.
 
Nevertheless, Dead End still fights with grim and committed intensity, perhaps determined to take as many Autobots with him as possible.

Fellow Seibertronian IAPETUS_PRIME has pointed us towards the newly revamped Hasbro Transformers website, and the new Transformers: The Last Knight mini-game that has been set up to promote the live-action movie (coming in just over a month) - Quest for Optimus Prime! The game includes the Glyph Hunt (linked only in name to the TRU Mission to Cybertron sub-line) and the Ancient Symbols sections, plus a third to be unlocked on May 29 - check some screenshots out below!

Leaving Earth, Optimus Prime planted a beacon on the moon. Sqweeks received a coded message from that beacon. The message comes from outer space and it might be from Optimus Prime. Sqweeks needs your help to decipher the message. Will you embark on this quest and find out if Optimus Prime is in danger?

This time round, we've tried to make the event enjoyable for a wider number of players, with the top leaderboard prizes being available to more alliances than before.

Additionally, we have enhancements in the works for future leaderboard events to encourage players to remain in one alliance during the war. This will result in the top 40 player's Battle Points contributing towards the total.
