Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast #280 "A Roar That Grasps Victory"
Episode 280 of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast begins with speculation on the tease from Hasbro's Haslab for their next Transformers project, where all that is currently confirmed is that it will have something to do with the 1989 Japanese TV installment, Transformers: Victory. Impressions of the just revealed Beast Wars Ravage exclusive for Pulsecon 2021 come next, followed by discussion on the upcoming Generations Selects release of Galvatron II, with a color scheme inspired by the original toy release. Multiple topics analyzing repainted toys follow, including talk on Shattered Glass Jetfire, the four entries in the suddenly released Buzzworthy Bumblebee Worlds Collide set, and the Premium Finish lineup's latest reveals, Ultra Magnus and Movie Megatron. A repaint that may not actually be one is talked about next given the leaked images of the upcoming Studio Series 86 Voyager Class Sweep. A quick chat about pictures from the Transformers 7 set which show Mirage rounds out the main topics. The episode concludes with a listener question and the recurring Bragging Rights segment.
Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast #279 "Clever Girl Summer"
Episode 279 of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast starts out by looking at the newly announced movie entitled "Transformers: Rise of the Beasts", set to hit theaters next summer with some fan-favorite Beast Wars characters set to hit the big screen. Transformers Collaboritive is next in the chat, and Hasbro spared no expense with the latest reveal of the Transformers x Jurassic Park collaboration featuring Tyrannocon Rex and Autobot JP93. A look at the J Balvin version of Soundwave is next, followed by rumors that have surfaced about a literal Amazon Prime. Rumblings of a possible collaboration with Universal Pictures Dracula fly around the discussion after that. Next up, images of Origin Bumblebee have surfaced showing the toy's look, inspired by the very first episode of The Transformers. Shattered Glass Goldbug makes his official debut for Hasbro's latest Transformers Tuesday event, then Studio Series keeps rolling down the track with new images of Thrust (from the Bumblebee Movie), Jolt and Grindor. This episode wraps with another round of bragging rights.
Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast #278 "The Return of Rodimus Prime"
Episode 278 of the Seibertron.com Twincast Podcast starts off with some catching up with former podcast crew member RodimusConvoy13, with no set topic and general talk about recent Transformers toys. Next up, we dive into the latest War for Cybertron Battle Across Time set with earth-mode Sideswipe and a throw back to Beast Wars II, Maximal Skywarp. With the reveal of Kingdom Tracks, we knew it would only be a matter of time until we saw Kingdom Road Rage unofficially revealed, so some very brief discussion occurs about it. Next, we discuss the new images of what looks to be Kingdom Deluxe Class Waspinator. It looks like we will be seeing more in the Premium Finish line with the latest reveal from Takara Tomy Mall, SS-02 Optimus Prime from the Bumblebee film and WFC-02 Megatron. With all that has been revealed recently, the crew discusses their thoughts on different character iterations throughout the years before the episode concludes with the recurring Bragging Rights segment.
Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast #277 "Daring to Be Stupid"
The latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast starts out with talk about the recently revealed upcoming toys for the Generations Studio Series 86 lineup, featuring Slag, Wreck Gar and Gnaw. The Shattered Glass Starscream toy also gets in to the discussion with a light debate about the tooling used to depict the latest version of the character. Generations Selects Artfire takes a quick turn under the microscope before the discussion moves to the latest re-release of the 1986 Transformers movie, which will be on 4k Blu-Ray for the first time. Cyberverse toys are making a return in a less than ideal way with their upcoming roll and combine figures, and the cast wonders if anyone actually wants these, including children. IDW Publishing's announcement of their upcoming King Grimlock series has the crew excited for new storytelling possibilities, so that receives its share of speculation as well. The episode wraps things up with thoughts on toys most Transformers fans hate which are loved by the cast anyhow before a quick round of the recurring Bragging Rights segment.
Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast #276 "Whoops! All Bumblebees"
The latest episode of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast jumps into some of the latest Transformers news with analysis and speculation about the just-revealed Premium Finish subline for Generations and Studio Series toys. Reaction to the also just-revealed Amazon exclusive two-pack of Mirage and Grimlock comes next, followed by further speculation on future, unconfirmed releases for Studio Series, Cyberverse, and even Botbots. Discussion topics follow, beginning with the crew's thoughts on what Transformers toys are nearly universally beloved by the collector community. Listener questions about completing sets of toys that depict teams of characters as well as preferences for the Pretender gimmick are next, before the show concludes with the recurring Bragging Rights segment where cast members share their most recent Transformers toy and product acquisitions.
Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast #275 "Non-Fungible Mailbag"
The Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast's 275th episode begins with a discussion on NFTs, what they are, what they have to do with Transformers, how they're created, why that has to deal with cryptocurrency, and who's concerned about its impacts. From there the talk goes on to opine on the just revealed Shattered Glass Megatron figure before the show moves into listener questions for the remainder of the episode. Speculation on the next round of official product reveals and what will be in them kick off the question and answer session, and this is followed by some thoughts about reissues in other older product lines such as Transformers: Armada and Cybertron in light of the recently revealed Beast Wars reissue lineup. Questions about favorites in Cyberverse lead to characters and lore coming front and center before we bring it back to toys with character deco paradigms and the color schemes that are just plain ugly. A final listener question has the cast analyzing which older Classics or Generations toys still have a place among the toys from the most recent years depicting the same characters. A quick round of the recurring Bragging Rights segment then closes out another episode.
If you're going to spoil Fall of Cybertron for those of us that haven't finished it, could you at least warn us?
