Radio Free Cybertron - All of our Transformers podcasts!
Summary: The Original Transformers Internet Radio Show and one of the world's first (if not THE first) podcasts. We've been online since 1999. We discuss topics from around the Transformers world, bring you the news worth talking about, provide insight and commentary. We are the official podcast of TFormers.com.
In Demand Toys leaked some stock images for a mysterious two pack of Bumblebee and Spike Witwicky. Bumblebee looks a lot like a Core Class figure, and also looks a lot like a G1-toy-accurate Autobot mini car in vehicle mode. Exo Suit Spike also seems to be a fully new mold, which can transform as seen in Transformers The Movie. This seems like it would fall under an irregular price point, which is a good sign that this is probably someone's exclusive. As for exactly who, there's not a clear indicator yet, but my early guess is Target, at least for the US. If this is an exclusive though, it makes it unlikely either figure is unique to this set. Spike could easily be a reuse of the Daniel that's supposed to come with Studio Series Slag, but we don't have any signs right now of where else a Core Class Bumblebee (or Cliffjumper, or Hubcap, or Bumper) might fit in.

This week: New crossovers, old crossovers, and maybe a new movie? Oh, and Aldi has Earthrise, but still no Jive. The News Transformers Collaborative X-Men Crossover Ultimate X-Spanse
Let's pretend this wasn't all spoiled hours earlier. The latest Fan First Friday brought reveals for Studio Series, and the second turn at Ghostbuster X Transformers Collaborative. On the Studio Series side, we got to see B-127, the Cybertronian form of Bumblebee which is a redeco of Cliffjumper with a new Bumblebee battle mask head. And finally Dino is making it to shelves in Studio Series after having a couple false starts over the prior years. Dino is definitely not a Ferrari, but the robot looks pretty accurate, and the Transformers team member they had on was talking up the robot mode's articulation in particular as an effort to capture the character as best as possible. The Ghostbusters reveal was indeed just an Afterlife Ectotron. This release features a weathered deco and a very limited amount of physical changes, most prominently the remodeled robot head. It also includes a second ghost figurine. Afterlife Ectotron will be exclusive to Target, which means you won't be able to preorder it when the listing goes live this afternoon. Thanks to all of our Patrons who are making this possible!
This week: It's our 700th episode and we discuss the recently unveiled Galactic Oddysey set, and the new Studio Series Starscream. The News Final Galactic Odyssey Set Revealed RFC News Desk 122 – Studio Series 72 Starscream Revealed
This week: Masterpiece Starscream 2.0 breaks our brains. Also: Lots of new toys in-hand. Golden Lagoon, uh, and more stuff. The News Masterpiece Starscream Ver. 2 Details And More in Figure King Pages First Look At Leaked Images of Kingdom Ractonite And Repacked Arcee Not sure why, but Golden Lagoon stuff hits Hasbro Pulse
Yes, yes, go ahead and make the Blitzwing joke; I'll wait. Ozformers was finally able to get their exclusive reveal event underway after some unavoidable delays, and even better, they managed to bring us an entirely unspoiled surprise! They showed off Studio Series 72 Starscream, a Voyager based on the Cybertronian battle scene in the Bumblebee movie. Preorders went up a little while later, and Starscream is due to hit stores next summer, around the start of July. Despite visual similarities between it and Blitzwing in their robot modes, Starscream is said to be an entirely new toy. But in this often baffling age of toy design, that still might not mean the two are entirely unrelated, engineering-wise. Thanks to all of our Patrons who are making this possible!

Rob's back in a post-Halloween hangover to tell you all about the Transformers. Well, Transformers SCF to be specific. He also talks about various Universal Studios stuff, the hidden Micronauts Kreon he discovered, and how he became a creepypasta by accident on Halloween night.

14 reveals, and only 1 we didn't have specific knowledge of in advance. The latest Fan First Friday has wrapped up, and they came armed with a lot of upcoming product announcements to cram in the half hour runtime of the stream. The full first wave of Studio Series 86 was shown off, though not every toy had a production sample on hand today. Jazz, Kup, and Blurr for the Deluxes, and Hot Rod and Scourge at the Voyager price point were shown off. Leader Grimlock had design CG shown, but a sample wasn't available due to some deco issues. The preorders begin today, and the figures are planned for release in February. They showed off the boxed set version of Studio Series Devastator too, with minor deco modifications and a giant display backdrop. As of posting it's already up for preorder on some retailers for $259.99. Walmart is getting a series of Titans Return rereleases, featuring the TakaraTomy version Headmaster heads, and with new decos. The first wave consists of Chromedome, Hardhead, Brainstorm, and Mindwipe, and they're supposed to be released in January.
