Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast #262 "Generational Taxonomy"
The Seibertron.com Twincast Podcast returns for episode 262 and starts out with speculation about upcoming holiday season resets, spurned by mention of the Walmart exclusive reissue Headmasters. These Titans Return Deluxe Class toys in Generation One style packaging are discussed next, with the series classification of the toys presenting a puzzle for some collectors. Additional upcoming toys are talked about next with Target exclusive Voyager Class Thrust and Deluxe Class Runabout in the War for Cybertron: Earthrise lineup, as well as the Amazon exclusive Galactic Odyssey Micromaster six pack. Studio Series' forthcoming G1 invasion is discussed next, with the initial lineup of Deluxe, Voyager and Leader Class toys such as Hot Rod, Kup, Blurr, Scourge and Grimlock having been officially revealed last week. Books are next on the agenda with a short mention of a Beast Wars Generations Mook from Japan. The recently released third volume of G1 Transformers manga from Viz receives a brief overview after that, before the episode ends with the recurring Bragging Rights segment where cast members share their latest Transformers toy and product collection acquisitions.
Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast #261 "Ratchets, Tigers and Planes"
Episode 261 of the Seibertron.com Twincast Podcast begins with a discussion on the upcoming Abominus box set from Takara Tomy, set to appear in the Generations Selects line.

Hasbro PulseCon's Pit of Judgment boxed set is the next topic, and the cast members share the differences between the exclusive and retail versions of the Quintesson Judge, as well as dive into the strengths and shortcomings of the deluxe Alicon figure. The cast also touches on deluxe Earthrise Arcee, another 1986 movie-inspired figure which is a natural fit for this Pit of Judgement set.
