Welcome to the latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. This episode features host Scotty P guiding cast members Counterpunch, Megatronus, Seibertron, and Tigertrack through the gauntlet of all the latest news and reveals from New York Comic Con 2015. Plus, Seibertron gets to sit down with the Hasbro Transformers brand team for a special Q&A session you won't want to miss!

Episode #127 "Titans Return" 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.

As you can probably infer from the episode title, Hasbro's Titans Return line shown off at NYCC 2015 is front and center for this episode. Follow along with the site's extensive galleries of the product reveals from the event as we tackle it all in some form of order, including the individual Titan Masters themselves.

My other car is a drill tank.


We also analyze the Legends class figures, including the important questions. These include questions such as "What does Rewind turn into?" and "Are these tablets also phones?" Well, ok, at least one of those gets asked along the way as we take a look at this upcoming pocket sized fun.

Next fall, the robot romance comes home


We can't forget about the Deluxe class figures of Headmasters coming our way either. Listen in to hear about the size of these guys directly from our crew that was on the ground at NYCC, as well as our other thoughts on the strategy and direction these may tell us about the line.

Does he also do stand-up in gator mode?


The Voyagers don't get left out either. Galvatron and Sentinel Prime go under the microscope, and also give us some hints about future uses of at least one of these molds. Also in this part of the show: Counterpunch goes bummin' on gimmicks.

The head can rotate here, but later?


We can't forget Blaster either, especially with his head being a homage to our program! Well, maybe it isn't, but we still have fun taking a look at this upcoming Leader class figure. Base mode speculation is also included here, as well as something else from Counterpunch: not bummin' on gimmicks.

You can change the face, but the visor remains


Nestled within our coverage of all the new toys is a special interview with the Hasbro Transformers Brand Team! Marketing Director Ben Montano, Senior Manager of Global Brand Marketing Sarah Carroll, Franchise Creative Lead David Erwin, Product Design Manager Ed Masiello, and Product Design Manager John Warden were all gracious enough to take a few minutes during their busy convention to sit down and chat with Seibertron. Listen in as he asks about Titans Return, Prime Wars, and more.

A sincere thanks again to our friends at Hasbro for taking out some valuable time to speak with us!

The show isn't all just NYCC fall out, as there is more going on in the world of Transformers to discuss, including the first two reveals from Botcon 2016's boxed set of toys. Ravage and Tarantulas are the first looks at the Dawn of the Predacus so far. Is the cast sold on the theme by these reveals, or do we still need some more convincing? Turns out we might just be a bit weary on combiners after all. Listen in for our thoughts on these first two limbs.

But what does the red Predacon symbol mean?


There was also a new Transformers video game released last week, and some of the cast has picked it up and started to dive in to this new adventure. Tune in for our somewhat (though not entirely) spoiler-free review of Activision and Platinum Games' Transformers: Devastation. We even touch on some gameplay hints and tricks. Who knew there were game reviewers lurking on this show?

Get ready to go to Sunbow City


Bragging Rights come next, and with them, a long show gets longer. After that, Scotty refuses to let the show end by rambling on about who knows what for several minutes.

That's not a Transformer...


Hope you have fun with this one, we'll see you again very soon with our haphazard ramblings from TFcon weekend!

I could see Overlord and Omega Supreme working as retools of each other thusly:
Overlord as a Leader class. The Tank forming the Legs and main trunk of the torso. (tank turret stays on the back) the jet splits in to 3 parts, the rear in half, the nose detaching. the arms connecting to the body via combiners wars ports. the nose pegging onto the arm g1 style

Omega as a Titan Class. g1 style. retaining the tank from Overlord. half of the launch gantry locks onto Overlord's feet. using Overlord's ankles as Omega's knees. the other half of the gantry slips on over the torso/tank beefing up the body. (using the cw ports to make the connection that much more secure) the rocket splits in half and becomes arms g1 style. and connect the tracks to the back as per g1. (tank turret becomes the head this time around)

I got one of those it's a Microman base based of Micromaster Countdown's Rocket base.

Would make a great accessory for the 2016 Titans Return toyline, as it's a pretty complementary scale.

I have a micromaster thing, and when I knew it was a thing, I needed it.

Plus, black colored....
