Iron Factory has new images up for Fangs of Tyranny, their set of Conehead Seekers. The trio of unofficial Ramjet, Dirge, and Thrust are of course based on Iron Factory's existing Seeker body, so these are largely a known value in terms of design and build. The set is expected to be in the $90 range, making the per-unit cost on par with previous offerings, and is set to include the last piece of the not-Sunstorm "build a figure" that has been featured with prior Seeker releases. Check out the photos from Weibo in the gallery below!
Thanks to diecast, we've got a look at a variation of DX9's unofficial Legends-scale Seeker mold, in the form of X16G Usurper, the "ghost" clear plastics deco of their not-Starscream. DX9 has applied some interesting new engineering ideas to the (extremely) tried and tested Seeker design, giving some interesting variation to possibly the most perennial of classics - and things I'd personally love to see applied to larger scale figures! Check out the video review just below from the RFC Reviews channel.
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!
MakeToys has announced via Twitter and Facebook that Galaxy Meteor, their unofficial rendition of Transformers: Cybertron Starscream, has been cancelled for low preorder numbers. They say they're "currently looking at ways of making the project more successful," which could mean anything from negotiating with specific retailers to looking for ways to reduce cost. It's difficult to say, but hopefully you didn't have your heart set on owning this any time soon. Keep reading for the details.
On Facebook, GCreations has posted an update featuring a color testshot of Fuuma, their unofficial version of Sixshot designed for a Masterpiece display. Noted as featuring various die cast metal parts and "hyper-articulated" joints in key locations, plus an array of accessories focused around the "Ninja" part of "Ninja Consultant". All of that is on display, as well as a run through of all the modes (with odd exception of the iconic submarine form) and some height comparisons with other unofficial figures to demonstrate the largeness of this new figure. We've mirrored all the images, check them out below!
Gorira Prime might sound like a likely name for a planet in some B-grade sci-fi, but in fact it's another upcoming Perfect Effect product. This is a redeco of Beast Gorira taking after the redeco of the real Optimal Optimus: Primal Prime. Look, it was the year 2000, we didn't have as many names to choose from in those days. Don't judge. Gorira Prime is expected to be released in November. No pricing information was officially released, but it can be expected to follow suit with Beast Gorira. Click through to check out the promo renders.
It looks like the unofficial Optimal Optimus will have an opponent in the near future. On Facebook, Perfect Effect has released the first tease for a new entry in their Perfect Beast series, a silhouette-style CG render of what is unmistakably Transmetal 2 Megatron. Even in this state it's clear the design has been passed through the Perfect Effect stylizing filter, which may or may not work for some collectors. And don't be surprised to see at least an additional blue version be announced before too long, too... Keep reading to see the full size image.
Now up for preorder at BBTS, Estimated to arrive November 2017. The PC-20 Perfect Combiner Upgrade is a repaint of the previously released PC-16 and is designed to work with the Comicon Exclusive Primitive Optimus Prime. This set includes a transforming figure, a breastplate, laser gun, neck kit, combine helmet and two interchangeable hands.
If you felt that this year's exclusive Primitive Skateboarding Optimus Prime from San Diego Comic Con bore a bit of resemblance to the old exclusive Nucleon Quest Super Convoy redeco of Powermaster Optimus/Super Ginrai from the early 2000s, you weren't alone. Perfect Effect has announced a black redeco of their Jinrai Prime coordinated with the SDCC Optimus. PC-20 Black Jinrai is due out around November, and features a new super mode head unique to this release which, along with the chest plate addon, are decoed to blend in with the SDCC Optimus. Check out the promo images, mirrored below!

Twitter user @TcrackerGenmon has posted some in-hand images of Perfect Effect's PC-16 Jinrai Prime upgrade figure, and it looks really good in full color! The figure replaces the cab on either Titans Return Powermaster Optimus Prime or Legends LG-35 Super Ginrai, and also adds true Powermaster compatibility (for use with the PC-15 upgrade set which includes a Powermaster/Godmaster Ginrai). Keep reading to see the photos!
That truck... it's the wrong color, but that's got to be Optimus Prime. Right? Wrong! This is the Mighty Thor, famous member of the... "Avfngcrs"!?

Once again we've got a new video from the RFC reviews channel, where diecast shows the Shadow Fisher upgrade kits for Masterpiece Ironhide and Ratchet to replace and reposition the door panels off of the hips for a cleaner look. Installation is demonstrated on Ironhide and at the end both figures are shown with the modifications completed as well as showing that Ironhide is still fully capable of transforming with the replacement parts installed.
