Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host ScottyP with Counterpunch, xRotorstormx, Megatronus, and special guests Mr. Starscream and that wonder from down under, Burn. Listen in as we discuss the latest news, toys, and more.
Seibertron was at Toy Fair to bring the latest and greatest images to your screen. Check out Seibertron's show room photography and official images of the show's awesome reveals HERE.
We start Toy Fair talk with the show stopping Trypticon. Starscream and Megatronus, who were on site at Hasbro's show space in New York, provide some first hand opinions of the monstrous kaiju on display - from the included Full-Tilt deluxe figure & Titan Master Necro to Tryp's Titan Master-munching gimmick. Is the rest of the crew sold?
Hungry Hungry Trypticon
We check out the contents of the upcoming Chaos on Velocitron and Siege on Cybertron box sets, featuring diecast Rodimus and Thunderwing Titan Masters, respectively. Likely modeled after the recent Combiner Wars sets, will the same concept work for Titans Return? Looking at Quickswitch, Nautica, Tidal Wave, and the other individual figures: which hit the right stride, and which are simply forgettable?
There were plenty of other notable Transformers figure reveals besides Titan Trypticon: a new Windblade figure is coming down the pipe, Topspin is getting his Twintwist, and the remaining Decepticon phase sixers and triple changers have finally (if expectedly) been revealed. Are these reasons to celebrate, or is the Twincast crew focused on other priorities?
The boys are back in town.
Taking a brief break from toy reveals, the crew discusses the Power of the Primes vote, and the next Prime of Cybertron: Optimus Primal. That's right, the fans have spoken, and the famed Beast Wars leader, representing 'Chaos' will lead. Is the crew psyched, or can whispers of Deathsaurus be heard in the distance?
With a rebel yell...
Forged to Fight, the upcoming mobile fighting game by Kabam, creators of the ever-popular Marvel Contest of Champions, was also on our minds this weekend. A new trailer is out, and the good folks at Kabam held a special preview event over Toy Fair weekend to showcase the gameplay. Are we in for another mobile sensation, a la Earth Wars?
Back to toys: Toy Fair 2017 featured some extremely exciting reveals for Transformers: The Last Knight. While Movie Masterpiece figures and a handful of new voyager toys are nice, there's one character in particular that seems to be on everyone's mind. All. Hail. Megatron.
4th time's the charm!
Time for some Toy Fair superlatives. The Twincast crew embarks on a discussion of favorite reveals, disappointments, biggest surprises, and what we were surprised not to see at the show. There are some interesting selections, so listen in to find out what we thought of Toy Fair overall.
Bragging Rights is here. What has everyone gotten since their last recording?
Until next time!

Directly from the Javits Convention Center showroom floor at New York Toy Fair 2017, site owner Seibertron has posted a gallery of an extremely limited premium edition set of Transformers Monopoly. Winning Solutions, a premium games company that has collaborated with Hasbro in the past, is working with the Transformers brand team to produce a high-end, G1-themed edition of one of America's oldest board games. Previous premium games from Winning Solutions include popular games such as Monopoly, Clue and Scrabble.
At first glance, the set appears to be framed artwork - suitable for hanging thanks to a friction locking system - featuring a laser etched aluminum 'frame' with classic robotic detailing, and The Transformers: The Movie inspired art by Marcelo Matere. The frame unfolds to become players' money and property trays, revealing a sleek Monopoly board with touches designed to entice fans' sensibilities:
Traditional Monopoly properties represented by classic Transformers characters
Diecast player tokens, including: Megatron (Gun mode), Soundwave (Walkman mode), Starscream (Vehicle mode), Hot Rod (Vehicle mode), Grimlock (Dinosaur mode), Optimus Prime (vehicle mode), Matrix of Leadership, and Unicron (planet mode).
While many details are as of yet unconfirmed and subject to change, Winning Solutions projects an early summer 2017 release date, with a prospective run of 500 sets and suggested retail price of $499. Additionally, each set will likely be hand-numbered and possibly signed by artist Marcelo Matere.

Another gallery from this weekend's Toy Fair in New York brings us some mock-ups and miscellaneous items related to both Transformers: Robots in Disguise and Rescue Bots, including plushies, biscuits, Playskool Friends and Baby figures and more. Check out the gallery here, and a small selection below!
A year later, and at the next Toy Fair in New York, we have another Comicave 1/22 scale collectable figure of Optimus Prime. The figures is a 50% die-cast metal, fully articulated figurine with interchangeable accessories, and LED light features in the eyes. At over 15 inches in height, it weighs close to 3.5 pounds (1.6 kg). Extendable joints at key points of the figure enable extensive posability and playability, as the official description tells us - so check it out in its gallery and below!
As we continue on with the vast amount of content from Toy Fair 2017, we bring to you a new gallery featuring Flame Toys' IDW Drift statue! Flame Toys based this statue on the first Drift mini-series version of the character after his transition from Deadlock. The character is shown to come with swords (cause, why wouldn't he?) as well as a cloak that he used on a couple of occasions. Check out some sample images below, and head to the full gallery to check out the rest of the images.
The new season and subline of Transformers: Robots in Disguise will be Combiner Force, and already is, as we all well know. What we also have now - after Toy Fair New York - is a better look at the animation models and designs for the Ultra Bee and Menasor combiners, as they'll appear in the show!
The new gallery posted here has the static versions, but we also give you below a re-post of the turnarounds we saw over the weekend, for your enjoyment. Check them out!
In other IDW Revolutionaries news today, we have a variant cover for the third issue of the new Hasbro universe series with our pals Micronauts, Kup, Blackrock, Action Man and GI Joe - check out below the Soundwave-tastic artwork from Marcelo Ferreira, via Previews World!

BLAST FROM THE PAST! In the deadly catacombs beneath an ancient pyramid, Joe Colton-the original G.I. Joe-found something far worse than any curse or boobytrap. He found the Decepticon Soundwave... scouring Earth for Cybertron's salvation. Their meeting remained classified-until the Revolutionaries crashed headlong into the modern-day results!
Not entirely news news in the newsiest sense of the word, but it is nice to get to see the people behind the live-action movies closer to the toys that made that particular slice of the Transformers world possible. That's right, along with the actual movie prop Sqweeks from Toy Fair, Michael Bay, Josh Duhamel, Mark Wahlberg, Isabela Moner (in a new haircut!), Laura Haddock and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura were all in attendance in New York! Check out some shots below, via the various The Last Knight social media feeds.
