The grand spectacle of Toy Fair 2020 rolled into town, giving us jabber jaws plenty to gab about on the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. Join your host ScottyP alongside xRotorstormx, Cobotron, and a brief drop in from the Boss Monkey himself, Seibertron as they discuss and react to all that was revealed at the (with echo) BIGGEST SHOW OF THE YEAR!

Episode #241 “Toy Fair 2020” is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

Worn out and weary from a whirlwind weekend of wonderful reveals, here's what we discuss:

  • We dive head first into Generations WfC Earthrise and do our best to try and touch on everything we saw.

    SNAP IN TO IT! Oooooh yeah!

  • As if Toy Fair wasn't enough deliciousness to digest, we gorge ourselves on the latest goodies from the rumor mill

    Damn mosquitos!

  • Judging by the Trailer for the forthcoming Netflix War for Cybertron Trilogy, Siege cartoon series we can all agree the art looks great! But, will the story live up to its look?
  • Accompanying the new show comes a slew of rebranded repaints from Siege. Are we ready do it all again, for the first time?

    Crasher! Is that you?

  • Generations aren't the only pretties on parade, Studio Series brings in some heavy hitters as well.

  • Cyberverse makes a good showing with some "Best of" characters, and some oddly exciting rookies to the mythos.

    There's a new sheriff in town.

  • It isn't Fair, but it is Fest. We jump to the other side of the globe to briefly discuss Takara's Wonderfest 2020 reveals of Masterpiece Arcee and Tigertron

You guys were talking about earthrise figures that came with blast effects, and so far as far as I know, it's only the shield guy who comes with blast effects.

Oh sweet! So the Battle Masters DO still come with them. Awesome! Good to know. ;)^

Good show as always, glad this went up this morning!

I don't think I ever saw a springer in stores. I have seen no shortage of TCs and Megs though

Speaking of which, TC/Megs/Shockwave have Targets and Walmarts clogged around here. They will not move.

Titan Buddies: I still need a Wipeout and a Slammer to complete the Titan groups. If I had gotten Grand Max, I would technically need 3, but I was in the clear!

G1 Doubledealer is a phenomenal toy, i love it. The double powermaster gimmick with the 3 modes is wonderfully fun, glad he is getting a new toy in that style!

I love Apeface, not sure why he is so despised. Snapdragon looks to compliment him very well, Looking forward to finishing the headmaster beasts! And Titan Master jaw is fantastic as well!

Sunstreaker will come from Wheeljack, I all but guarantee it.

Scotty: I agree with everything you've said about Cyberverse. Season 3 right now is a sleeper season, people have no idea how much good they are missing.

The Prime Wars cartoon did get better as it went, but it still wasn't very good at all.

Both Netflix and IDW's Bee have ugly faces, STAAAHHHHHHPPPPPPPPP

All of the 35th anniversary guys are stuffed full at my Walmart too. They won't get anything in new for a while, we still have about 10 Bluestreaks

Netflix show is set to come in June 2020, which was in our story, but we were asked to pull the date.

Scotty, I was watching the Pulse stream live too, the Star Wars quietness and lack of cheering was painfully obvious.

Cobs: do yourself a favor, and just get car Dropkick and Jet Shatter. You only need those 2! A wonderful bad guy set of partners! Just do it! I might even just send you a pair once I get Shatter, just to help you out.

SS Cliff: I am convinced this only got made cause 1) they can get another Bee out of it, 2) it was one of only 2 cybertronian alt modes shown, and 3) it is a retool of Jeep Bee. I am glad we are getting him though, I liked the small part he played

The SS Constructicons have included some of the best figures and engineering of the past many years, they are wonderful. They are also wonderfully diverse and interesting, and bring a lot to the table while still having all the combining stuff fully integrated. I cannot wait for Devy.

I got a bunch of figures on that Target deal pre-ordered, and I also took the precaution of pre-ordering Overload for the mistaken $29.99 price on Amazon too. I honestly might keep both pre-orders if Target actually works and have 2 Overloads. Love him.

To give you guys an idea of how big Devy will be, here are 4 of his components assembled with Deluxe Bee for reference

Image

Cobs: DHL shipping for me has been universally 1500 yen, Amazon JP is the way to go!

Cobs also: I think the opening scene you were thinking of has Demolishor, who shares a body type with Scavenger, not Rampage (wheels vs. jackhammer). And yes, Skipjack is being made to give Devy a yellow left leg like the movie, or you can use Rampage (not sure which I will use yet)

Great show, and thank you for the fun!

Who do I gotta sacrifice to the Fallen to get a Masterpiece RHINOX!?
That's all I want to know.
:BOOM: :BANG_HEAD: :-(

Yeah dang it! That Dropkick winks at me every time I see him in store. I might bundle him up with some ER Deluxes if necessary to work the Target sale.

And thanks for that call on the opening scene. All I could see in my head was a big red monopedal Con. But you're right it was Demolisher with the unicycle, not a pogo stick. :lol:

@ Z3ROhour - Your first born should do nicely. :twisted:

You need that Dropkick. You dont even have to be a SS collector, if you enjoyed Bumblebee you have to have it. (Me personally, I prefer the look of Car Shatter with Bee and Dropkick but thats more to do with the synergy of the other two being cars. The Jet is absolutely a better toy.)

Ditto! Glad to know they have dropped them as an accessory :D

I've been a total lazy pants with the Masterpiece Beast Wars figures but I'd actually be really curious to see what they could do with him. I am sure he is coming down the pipeline at some point...actually surprised we having seen him already!

To amend the "so many Arcees" conversation, ThreeZero confirmed that they are absolutely continuing the DLX line, and the next character to be announced is... Cybertronian Arcee.

UGGGGGHHHHH.

Pretty much what Flash said too. If you were to only get one, jet Shatter will be the way to go, but if you could get a cheap car Shatter that would be ok too (even though that is probably SS weakest mold).

I'm going to Target this weekend, now I'm hoping a Dropkick is there for the BOGO deal ;)

That's in a line I'm happy to ignore, yay! Btw, not saying they're bad toys, just not for me.
