The Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast is back in your feeds with an allegedly short episode that stretches into infinity, or at least into the typical length for this podcast. Listen in as ScottyP and Megatronus do their thing with Transformers news.

Episode #293 “License to Thrill” is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher Radio and many other Podcatcher sites within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

Here's what we discuss in this episode:

  • After some irreverent small talk, we dive in earnest into Daikron, AKA Diaclone Ironhide, and the amazing packaging upgrade to Legacy's Generations Selects line.

  • Speaking of Legacy, new core class figures have been revealed: Iguanus and Skywarp. While Skywarp's lack of ion blasters give us pause, there is no resisting the near perfect, threading-the-Pretenders-needle execution of Iguanus.

  • The rumors have become reality as IDW is reported to lose the Transformers license at the end of the calendar year. We speculate on the remaining releases and how to transition to the new license holder.

  • Rise of the Beasts the movie, delayed? Well that's not going to stop Rise of the Beasts toys from hitting shelves in Q2 of this year. How will these toys fair without media support? Not great.
  • We have a Rise of the Beasts-related listener question from meanguns: "Everyone give a realistic prediction and a bold/ridiculous prediction." Well... you asked for it.

  • Next we speak to the rollout of Legacy, the appearance of the line at French retail, and whether there's been a shift in approach given supply chain constraints and container allocations, or if it's just all in our heads.
  • We wrap up with a round of bragging rights. Megatronus couldn't find an image of the really, really, really cool thing ScottyP got, so you'll just have to listen in to find out but he used magic Admin powers to edit this post to add it in. Cool!

Don't have a lot to say, but Scotty I feel like Roadblock us a faaaaaaarrrrrrr stretch for the G1, outside of maybe the target master. That Scoop mold is 100% intended to be G2 Roadblock the Motorvator dude.

BTW, Energon Dem9l8shir makes a good stand in Dirtbag.

I came here to say the same about Roadblock. Maybe all you gotta do to spark some more discussion is say things that are subtly wrong :lol:
Also, as far as I can tell, the only other non-FP Pretender update/homage is Generations Skullgrin (from the Straxus mold), which I've actually been looking at purchasing recently. He looks like a cool toy.

While I do read the TF ongoing, I cannot say I am sad it is ending, but I am sad to hear Larry Hama's Joe book is ending.
