It's almost time for the big ceremony admitting Earth to the Cybertronian Council of Worlds! ...wait, I feel like we've been here before. Have we been here before? Well, yes - but not from the Revolutionaries' point of view!

Stardrive has had it - with Autobots, with Decepticons, with Dire Wraiths, and even with her fellow Solstar Knights. So then, what is she going to do about it? Rom Vs. Transformers: Shining Armor

Things are going a bit wrong. The delegation from Earth has traveled to Cybertron, as has a group of the Earth-based Transformers in order to work out entry to the Council of Worlds. But an untimely explosion, cut off communications, and tensions are rising quickly. With Optimus Prime and Arcee off world and out of reach, Aileron has to take command. She is so going to hate this day. "Primeless, Part 1", written by John Barber, art split among Sara Pitre-Durocher, Fico Ossio, Paolo Villanelli, and Kei Zama, with colors for all by Josh Burcham.

Joe Colton has to be stopped and Scarlett and her team are the only ones with the knowledge that Optimus Prime needs. So it's time to bust them out of prison! But it's not going to be that simple - on any level. First Strike

Holy crap! Transformers has too many names on their packaging. But this is Walmart Exclusive Transformers: The Last Knight Autobots Unite Deluxe Class Autobot Hot Rod.
The younger generation needs Transformers as well. If you want your children to have Transformers that are slightly more involved than Rescue Bots, then this is the way to go.
From diecast on RFC Reviews we have what we're pretty sure is the first video review for Meteor - original recipe style, that is, G1 cartoon inspired rather than Galaxy
Meteor. Meteor goes for as much of a cartoon-inspired look for Starscream as is practical on a figure that can still transform, and that efforts looks quite successful with mainly smooth surfaces, bright colors, and slightly rounded edges that clearly set it apart from where the official MP Starscream was aimed. The video review is a little over half an hour. Check it out embedded below for your first in hand look at this brand new release!
Scarlett, the Joes, MASK, and their Cybertronian allies know exactly where Joe Colton is going and have a good idea of what he's trying to do. Unfortunately it's not their planet, and they don't get to decide how the pursuit will be handled - or who will handle it. First Strike

Finding themselves on an alien world, four intergalactic factions work towards different goals. But how to achieve those goals isn't something anybody agrees on - and the differences don't fall squarely along party lines. Rom Vs. Transformers: Shining Armor

One more quick review from diecast on RFC Reviews tonight! FansToys recently brought out a replacement head option for their unofficial Masterpiece-style Grimlock, Grinder. This new head is modeled more closely after the look of the dinosaur mode in the G1 cartoon, giving an easy modification option for owners more inclined to that appearance. How easy? Well, diecast manages it in the space of about six minutes, and still has time for several off-color jokes in the process! Wow! Check out the video in the post below.
On the RFC Reviews channel, diecast has shared a video for the Hascon "exclusive" that caught most people's attention, Titans Return Arcee. This is the latest heavy retool of Blurr featuring a bonus die-cast metal Ultra Magnus Titan Master in addition to its own Titan Master Leinad. All information so far is that this will be available again outside of the convention distribution, with the info card at the event promising major retailers. Meantime, you can watch the video embedded below to get a better look at the whole set!

Diecast from Radio Free Cybertron and the RFC Reviews channel has a problem. That problem is the China-based marketplace website TaoBao. But sometimes this expensive habit of his benefits us, as today when diecast brings us a review of Cosmos Dominator, an unofficial light up Unicron bust that doesn't seem to have been picked up much by sellers outside China. But we've got a chance to check one out now, so click through to watch the video embedded below!
Slugslinger has a special place in my heart. It was the only Decepticon Targetmaster I had when I was young, so I knew I had to make sure I got the Titans Return update. I'll say it right now, Slugslinger's weapon is the best of the entire line, being the closest to the original G1 Targetmaster look, you almost miss the Titan Master interactivity. Transformation is simple but satisfying which leaves me wondering why its mold mate Triggerhappy is so involved. Even if it wasn't the last deluxe figure in the line Slugslinger would be a must have.
