Hello and welcome to the lastest edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your host ScottyP along with RodimusConvoy13, xRotorstormx, our long lost partner in crime TigerTrack24, and coming to you live from San Diego Comic Con, Seibertron. In this episode we will be discussing all the latest news coming out of San Diego Comic Con from rumors and reveals to new comics that will be headed to a comic shop near you.

Episode #121 "SDCC 2015" 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.

San Diego Comic Con, the place where everyone wants to be, is taking place this week (July 9-12) and we've got the latest scoop on all the big surprising and those not so surprising reveals in the Transformers world BUT we decided to throw you a curve ball tonight and start off with a little discussion of non-TF SDCC news that we are each looking forward to.

Up next we'll dive into the world of transformers...

Oh, what do we have here, do my eyes deceive me? Nope, those 90's neon colors are headed our way again in the form of G2 Superion and Menasor and we couldn't be more excited!

We've also been shown this awesome spreadsheet of repeated mold use in the Combiner Wars line, just in case you were curious. :D

We fall back into some G2 chat when out of the blue, who do we have here? Live from San Diego, its Seibertron! He was able to take some time out of his busy schedule to join us to chat about everything from his first hand experiences to the overall vibe of comic con. You do not want to miss this.

While it may not come as a surprise to some, it looks like we've finally gotten an update that Toys R Us may actually be getting Masterpiece Starscream.

Up next, we discuss our thoughts on the awesome looking game from Activision Transformers: Devastation plus, our very own Seibertron was lucky enough to get a first hand walk through at SDCC.

The votes have been tallied and the fan built female combiner, Victorion, has finally been revealed. We'll discuss our first thoughts on her as well as the overall fan reaction.

At this years Botcon, we were lucky enough to get our hands on some G2 figures that never saw the light of day, General Optimus and Sgt. Hound. On top of Nacelle from the club, the twincast deviates a little to discuss what other unreleased figures we would love to see.

SDCC also gave us images of the upcoming Combiner Wars Scattershot and Betatron but the question still remains, will we actually see Computron? Guess we will have to wait and see.

With the popularity of the Combiner Wars line so far, what does this mean for the possibility of the other combiners making an appearance?

Combiner Wars Devastator, the set we have all be clamoring to get our hands on is finally popping up in stores. Some of the twincast were lucky enough to have him in hand so you'll have to tune in to hear our thoughts on this new box set.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #121 "SDCC 2015"

There were a few things that were surprisingly absent at SDCC this year, most importantly, Titan Wars. The images were (leaked?) at Botcon this year on the Hasbro banner but with no official word, will we ever see these figures come to life? Well, just when we thought all hope was lost, an image of Titan Wars Blaster has appeared...

In other news, the twincast discusses the upcoming Combiner Wars animated series coming to us from Machinima.

I don't see Phiranacon or Abominus happening in CW-They can't get them out of the existing moulds. >:oP

Our podcast is an audio only experience for the moment, but to listen there are a few different ways. Episodes can be downloaded individually, clicking this text will start a download of an mp3 file of the latest episode. You can also find us on iTunes, and Stitcher Radio, though sometimes it takes a little while for the files to populate on those services so they may not be up to date with the latest episode until tomorrow or the next day.

Hope you enjoy it! If not, well, we tried :lol:

Most of the time the episode is on iTunes as soon as the news story is posted. Only a few times it hasn't been. I hope you enjoy the show. You can go back and listen to old episodes or wait for new ones. I was a listener from day one and have always enjoyed listening and occasionally yelling about what was being discussed. :D Now I don't yell. But that's because the other people on the podcast can hear me. :lol:

I mean, you can feel free to yell. As long as it makes sense. Or just scream random phrases every ten minutes.

Last Podcast there was a tease about Ryan potentially having to talk about third party figures in an upcoming episode.

Please tell me this is happening!

I may have been the podcast equivalent of a red shirt, but I could've told you that.

Hooray for a weekend recording! Although my wife won't be pleased one bit if that becomes a regular thing.

Definitely maybe. Ok, yes, but it may not be soon. Plans changed a bit. Stay tuned.

This screaming random phrases every 10 minutes sounds fun. I may need to work on the Professor Frink voice from the Simpson's. After all, every thing is better with some FLAVIN GLAVIN!!

I'm kind of surprised when they talked about MP Bluestreak that they didn't mention the MP Megatron picture in the package, like the ones in the other Combiner Wars packages. I realize it was a quick mention of Bluestreak but I thought someone would mention it regardless. I'm not sure if Megatron has been shown before. I do know it has been talked about some, and even fussed about for not being done yet, just don't remember it being in the news or mentioned in the forums. I might of missed it if it is in the forums somewhere. :???: Either way here is a picture of him in the package. Also there is a curious picture of Unicron in the package too. I wonder what that will turn out to be, just a little accessory piece or an actual MP figure?

It's been debunked as just "cool art" for quite awhile, which is why it didn't come up :)

Oh man, that sucks! That is sad! Thanks Scotty for clearing it up for me. :oops:
It looks cool and would of been a great figure from the image in box. Oh well! :BANG_HEAD:

I agree on the sentiment. I'd love an official MP Megatron "2.0" from Takara. Apollyon is good, but it's so painfully un-fun to transform that I'm still left unsatisfied.

Honestly, I'd take a Tank Megatron if the bot mode was right, but with the direction Masterpiece has gone/is going in, coupled with the (I presume) general unpopularity of that idea, that's probably not in the cards either.

I'd take the tank too, but I'd love a G1 (Proper) gun mode more I think. I hate the whole bright orange safety plug idea though, especially if it is painted on or glued in, and a tank wouldn't need the plug. I guess they both would have an appeal to me. I lucked up on the original MP Megs and got it without a plug from someone already in the U.S. but it was several years after the original release.

A little late on this, but I heard another request of me in this one.

That little yellow guy next to Roadbuster on the Sins of the Wreckers cover is... unknown to me. :-P

Some have guessed Armada Sparkplug (like you guys mentioned), others have guessed G1 Hubcap.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see who it is when the comic comes out. :PEACE:
