Welcome to the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast Episode #169 - "Worst Giveaway Ever". Join host ScottyP, all alone with Razorclaw0000, in the wilds of North Carolina as the team prepares for - and winds down from - NC Comicon 2017.

Episode #169 "Worst Giveaway Ever" 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.

This short show starts off with some silliness as we open two full of cases of vintage Transformers Armada trading cards by Fleer as we attempt to complete Scotty's set and get Bob hooked on some true collecting insanity. The experience prompts us to offer the "worst giveaway ever" - you could win a complete stack of Energon Scorponok teaser cards from the Armada line by guessing how many we have. Closest winner without going over will win the entire stack! Open to US residents only - complete rules available in the show!

You could win a whole lot of me!


After that, we chill out and reflect on NC Comicon, including our interviews with John Barber, David Hedgecock, and Chris Ryall, the panels, exclusive covers, and show in general.

Was this convention an experience that's enough to satisfy Transformers crazed veterans of several Botcons past? In many ways yes, even without the laser focus on our favorite Robots in Disguise. Tune in to hear our thoughts on how this convention stacks up and whether or not you'll want to look into checking it out in years to come.

Cheap Pop!


Finally, we close out with some small bragging rights from the show. We hope you enjoyed the insanity, and stick around for Episode #170 - and the discussion with the folks at IDW.

Razorclaw0000's laugh always amuses me! Just started listening to this.

I reckon you got at least 53 Scorponoks. (Just a fun guess because I'm in the UK. :p)

I have a follow up to this show: there is, in fact, a gold checklist card. Source: bought gold checklist card on eBay :michaelbay:

Oh good! I really don't like my voice and I'm surprisingly self conscious about it, despite doing the podcast for literally years now. Thanks!

I did listen to this while doing housework and baking last week, which means all my comments have been forgotten. I'll relisten this weekend!

I thought this was a fun segment, and as much as I really enjoyed the silliness of the cards, the cooldown post convention was a really interesting part to listen to.

It had a much more relaxed feel than the post BotCon ones we did last year, too, inevitably. :D

An iPad for knowing who the leader of the Autobots is? Dang.

Tbh I'd be more exited about getting a free titan master than any apple product.
