Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast! This episode features your prodigal host Counterpunch, Micron master ScottyP, lead vocals RodimusConvoy13, Combiner Wars junkie Megatronus, and the site owner Seibertron himself - listen in as we discuss the latest news, comics, toys, and more.

Episode #122 "The One Where Rodimus Sings" 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've got a diverse agenda for this episode folks, so keep on listening or you might miss it. We start with comic-talk, specifically Transformers #43 - official Seibertron review here. The Soundwave/Cosmos dynamic is an interesting one, and we have a bit of a role reversal. What does the Twincast crew think of this installment, not to mention the promo covers?

Take that, peaceful dude!


We move onto the more divisive More Than Meets the Eye #43 - official Seibertron review here. Holo-matter avatars abound in this issue, and whether you dig it or not, we're all eager to get on to the next thing. Can this issue's ending catharsis redeem the long slog to the end? Listen in for some strong opinions.

Well... that was unexpected.


Only a select few of the Twincast crew are caught up on the RID Cartoon, and Counterpunch has one incisive question: WHY? Listen in as we compare RID to its predecessors, discuss its strengths and weaknesses... and get distracted by distribution of on-screen characters... and distribution in general.

Not hard to find!


We move right onto some exciting news - Transformers Subscription Service Impactor. The Twincast finally agrees on something: this guy is COOL. Well done, FubPub. Our all important head-canon and the Combiner Wars figures we want aside, you should join the discussion in Seibertron.com's brand new Collectors Club forums, right here.

Squeal!!!


Time for some Masterpiece talk. Word has come down (or eastward) from Japan that MP-11T Thundercracker is coming. The Twincast's reaction is mixed. Are we digging the semi-accurate cartoon deco, or are we happy with our Hasbro version from a couple years back? More importantly, where are our Coneheads?

He's so pretty, and silky smooth too!


So, how about that Masterpiece Ironhide? Ever since MP27 was announced at Tokyo Toy Show, the fandom has been alternating cycles of uproar and rage on this figure. The Twincast crew has their own prognosis. Listen in as we consider the future of this impending release, and agonize over this photoshop.

Non-heroic nonsense.


It's time… for a LISTENER QUESTION! Doctor McGrath ask "Combiner Wars Devastator looks great but where does he fit in your collection?" Devastator goes plenty of places to go... a shelf of redundancy here, a shelf of misfit toys there. There are no wrong answers, so listen in to where the Twincast will be placing this behemoth... if they do at all.

He's a mean, green, devastation machine!


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

Minus his armada.

Those RiD2k1 car bros molds are so darn good. Might have to mess with those later. But only the first few uses of 'em, by the time they put out the Universe 1.0 repaints they were so floppy #-o

If my singing in this one proves popular enough, we'll do a Karaoke episode where everyone gets to sing a song from Transformers: The Movie. :-D

And if you believe that, I have a MISB G1 Overlord I'm selling for $10.

Oh, you can send it to me. However, shipping on that Overlord will take, literally, forever. :lol:

I figured out what I was doing wrong with Fracture. His gimmick only works in robot mode when his legs are fully apart.

Great show as usual. It was interesting hearing the discussion regarding "monster of the week" style Television shows, as I am pretty much the complete opposite as the hosts. My favorite episodes of shows like X-files or Supernatural were the ones that focused a monster of the week.

I also find it fascinating to hear or see how fellow collectors display or organize their collections. Mine has no real rhyme or reason and I enjoy mixing characters from various lines together.

Anyway, keep up the great work!

I feel the same way when I watch Power Rangers and Sailor Moon. They always have a different monster in every episode
