The Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast comes at you once again with host Scotty P, who's joined by Twincast regulars Megatronus, Seibertron, and RodimusConvoy13 for a long Saturday night hang out as we digest the Tokyo Toy Show and much, much more.

Episode #146 “Happy Accidents“ 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.

Tokyo Toy Show just happened, and many new toys from Takara Tomy were revealed. The cast takes a look at all the latest, such as Ginrai, Unite Warriors Lynx Master, Ratchet, and more. New toy time even manages to leave out Thrust, because there just might be some other Masterpiece news to turn to...

Sir Not Appearing In This Episode


That's right, Masterpiece Cheetor has been revealed! This upcoming cat has, so far, blown us away, with a supremely show accurate look and a transformation that we take quite awhile trying to figure out. The only thing for sure is that the release of this kitty can't come fast enough, especially when we start thinking about the Universe version and the fun-but-dated Beast Wars original.

Ultra Gear!


Beast Wars keeps on grabbing attention with the ongoing re-watch of Season 1 continuing full steam ahead. After an extremely brief look at Dinobot clones in episode 14, the birth of Airazor in Episode 15 takes over. The spark is strong with this one, as Rhinox takes us along into actual plot, suspense, excitement, and world building.

:Phew: This is where it starts to get good.


The two part episode "The Trigger" comes next, and the crew analyzes the continued world building, character, and plot progressions brought about by this well loved pair of episodes. Seibertron does join us at this point as well, and we jump back to some of the earlier topics once again before coming back around full circle to Beast Wars.

Before that smooth criminal Silverbolt showed up, she almost won it all.


With Beast Wars Tuesdays about to take over Seibertron this summer, we look at both the recent new galleries for Magnaboss, and look back at some of our favorite import beast toys. Are they all going to be the weird molds, or does a repaint or two manage to make its way into our superlatives?

Maximals hate him! Wait until you see why when he does his one weird trick for natural Predacon domination.


The show changes gears at this point and takes a look at one of the more controversial recent developments in the world of Transformers. Much has been made about the Revolution coming our way - what does the Twincast make of these developments? Are we pleased as punch, or ready to punch a wall?

But really, does M.A.S.K. sell the gas to themselves?


The shared universe concept looks to be upcoming for the Michael Bay directed Transformers live action movie franchise as well, with ROM the Space Knight looking to be a key piece. Get a short history lesson on ROM as we continue on our lengthy speculation and discussion about our hopes, fears, and dreams with the potential of a universe featuring robots, more robots, little guys, transforming vehicles, and a Real American Hero.

You'll still never get this toy :(


The possibilities of fun new characters is endless, and with Club Ramjet arriving this week to Collectors' Club members as well, the cast thinks about what characters from ~ '99-'07 most need some updates. Whether it's updated fiction, a deeper backstory, a new toy, or some combination of these, tune in to hear who and what we'd like to see get the spotlight.

And then Scotty doesn't pick something from UT, and someone leaves to check his pulse.


An interlude into the world of Takara Tomy's Transformers Adventure line follows, with Scotty and Seibertron waxing poetic about this amazingly fun toy line. New stuff like Crazybolt and Mini-cons everywhere take center stage as we just hang out and talk about fun toys for awhile. Will you be looking more into this line after listening?

Illumination through acceleration! And fun.


RodimusConvoy13 saves the day by reminding The Worst Host Ever that the classic 1986 Transformers movie will see a long-awaited release on Blu-Ray disc in the United States this fall. From the great cover, to why this kind of upgrade is significant, to other animated movies on the format, we cover all the bases on this truly good news. Also, find out what Food Network, Sharkticons, and mean tweets have to do with this movie finally coming back out again the beers really, really kick in as it gets quite late on a Saturday night.

Just like James Roberts has playlists for each issue of More Than Meets The Eye, I believe this would be part of this episode's soundtrack:

another great episode.
I don't mind you guys veering off topic because it is like an everyday conversation with my friends where we talk about 50 diffenrt things simultaneously that would start with something as simple as I like PBJ.

So, who's with me with getting GI Joe: The Movie on Blu Ray? To see that opening in full HD could be the greatest thing ever. Do you think Shout could release all the other Hasbro movies?

Yes Chuck, that would be so good,

GI JOE for blu ray
