This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Hey, it’s our 18th anniversary show! Now with that out of the way, what a crazy week this was! Between Grotusque being announced Thursday at NYCC and in some of our hands by Friday, to the revelation that Takara-Tomy is looking to produce a Grand Maximus and Greatshot, this has been quite a week for Transformers fans! Also on the show we probably spend just a bit too much time talking about Jason Jansen and his birthday. All that and more on this week’s Radio Free Cybertron!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: We're back from an awesome TFcon. Almost every single thing about the convention was perfect, except for one small thing that left many fans disappointed. We'll discuss. On a COMPLETELY UNRELATED note, is third party in a death spiral? We take on that debate and the sides chosen may surprise you. Also on the show: we got tons of toys over the weekend at TFcon, and we share our hauls for the week. Diecast finally gives Kronos that viking funeral it deserves. Yes! He did it! He finally really did it. That maniac! He burned it up! All that plus this week's news including the reissue God Fire Convoy that you probably don't need. It's a madhouse on this week's RFC!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: HASCON is over, TFCon is next week, and NYCC is the week after! We are here to keep you up to date on all of the Transformers news, opinion, and analysis that you need! HASCON exclusives came and (mostly) went today at HTS, did you get yours? If you didn't get your Arcee, you should participate in our 18th anniversary contest! Also on the show Toys R Us moves forward with bankruptcy, new Transformers statues are coming your way, That Takara Tomy Cogman you were banking on has been delayed and way, way, way more!
This week on Radio Free: HasCon is over and we're back home. We spend much of the show recapping and sharing our thoughts of Hasbro's first convention. Did it match our expectations? Besides all of the news coming out of HasCon, we have new information from Takara-Tomy on G2 Megatron, finally! Also on the show we have our interview with John Warden and Ben Montano from Hasbro, as well as our interview with Pablo Calvo of Space Ape Games! Check it out!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: We observe the 19th anniversary of the Dark Glass controversy, and reminisce a bit about the early online fandom. Hasbro sues DC over their infringement of the Bumblebee trademark, we share our perspective. Apparently action has been taken against an online retailer in respect to a third party toy, we unravel that story with the information we have available to us. More statues are on the way. Who's buying these? We're not. Are you? Plus we talk a bit more about the end of the Last Knight's theatrical run, that awesome new Toys Alliance Mega Action Series Megatron, the toys we picked up this week, and more!
This week on Radio Free we're fast approaching Hascon, and Hasbro has offered up tickets at a fairly steep discount to entice prospective con-goers to make some last minute decisions. We're somewhat divided on the Maketoys Galaxy Meteor cancellation that occurred this week. Since announcing NOT Cybertron's Starscream cancellation, they've since stated that they will figure out some way to make the toy available. If you tweeted that you want to #GetMakeToysMade, are you actually going to buy the toy? Bumblebee is filming, and you can be in the film. But do you really want to? All that and more on this week's Radio Free Cybertron!
This week on RFC: The SDCC exclusives hit Hasbro Toy Shop. Did you get yours? We're guessing not. With little fanfare, The Last Knight comes home next month. Titans Returns Slugslinger has hit Australian retail, Metroplex is being reissued in Japan, Perfect Effect's Black Jinrai upgrade for the SDCC Primitive Skateboarding Prime looks phenomenal, and Deluxe Cogman looks AMAZING--let's hope we get it! All that and we ponder the deeper meanings of life and Masterpiece Targetmaster Hot Rod on this week's edition of Radio Free Cybertron!
