This week on Radio Free Cybertron we have the rundown from Toy Fair 2014, onsite interviews with Activision and Hasbro at Toy Fair 2014, this week in History, the week's news, comic news from Aimee and the entire 23 minute presentation from Hasbro at Toy Fair 2014.
Activision Publishing, Inc. and Hasbro today released two new video game bundles that are more than meets the eye: TRANSFORMERS: ULTIMATE BATTLE EDITION for Nintendo’s Wii system and TRANSFORMERS: ULTIMATE AUTOBOTS EDITION for the Nintendo DS™ hand-held system. Both titles combine two full games from the epic, galactic saga between the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS into one package loaded with adventure and value for this holiday season.
So, it seems lately that there's always something I don't like about Optimus prime figures and their paintjobs. Last time it was PRID OPtimus that I had to do something about, and since I've just got my Corbot V war axe in, I decided to finally tackle WFC Optimus. Check out the full makeover list after the jump
For those who are worried that they if they jump into Transformers War for Cybertron multiplayer now will be extremely far behind, have no fear: the multiplayer XP will now multiply by five starting on Monday until forever. This change is in effect for Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony Playstation 3, and PC versions only. So if you have been looking to max out all of your classes but have been too lazy to do it with only a 1 to 1 ratio for points, how about 5 to 1?
The Gnomon Gallery in Hollywood, CA will be featuring a special exhibit that highlights the work of the High Moon Studio's artist's on the Transformers War for Cybertron game. As many fans already know, this was some of the best art work ever realized around the Transformers universe. Now the whole world can enjoy it in this art show that opened on 3/5. Read all the details after the jump.
2011, the 25-year anniversary of “The Touch” and of the original Transformers movie, Stan has teamed up once again with songwriter Lenny Macaluso to come up with this high-energy rocker “Heat of the Battle”!

Earlier this week, we focused on Soundwave in the War For Cybertron subline. Now, we turn our attention to his supreme commander Megatron. From initial looks, the designers seemed to have pulled cues from G1 and the movie, as well as (surprisingly enough) Animated. Does it translate into a good figure? This review attempts to answer that question.
Since Bumblebee and Optimus Prime premiered the War For Cybertron toy line in July, people have been anxiously awaiting the second wave featuring 2 infamous Decepticons. Well, the time is now as Soundwave and Megatron appear on the shelves. We look first to the loyal communications officer Soundwave, whose review can be found here.
