This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Masterpiece Starsaber news keeps rolling in, growth at Hasbro Studios proves that Age of Extinction is a good thing, Beast Wars and Beast Machines characters we'd like to see in Generations, FP NOT Quickswitch looks pretty rad, (even more) too many third party Dinobots coming our way and tons more!





So it seems we have an update on Moonraker and his remold/recolor Duneracer (Beachcomber?) (Personally I was hoping for a Buggyman version.) Company is called Customs by Dawgstar.



Third party Transformers news for the week ending August 23rd, 2014. Includes the latest news from the BadCube, Bold Forms, Dr. Wu, FansProject, GCreations, Keith's Fantasy Club, Omnigonix Cassy Sark, Toyworld, X2 Toys and X-Transbots, Also includes repair parts for Masterpiece Rodimus Prime.

BBTS have just let us know they have posted pre-orders for the Topeam TSD-002 figure, SDMeister! A super-deformed version of Jazz, this figure is unique among SD figures in that it can apparently transform.

Robot Kingdom has released images of their upcoming TSD-002 figure, SDMeister! A super-deformed version of Jazz, this figure is unique among SD figures in that it can apparently transform.

Transformers@TheMoon has posted more new images of Fans Project's upcoming Quickswitch homage covering more of the alternate modes that weren't photographed last time. It does a reasonably credible job of every one of them, which is a bit more than you can say for the original toy. Keep reading to see the photos!



Keith's Fantasy Club will soon be releasing 3 newew recolor of it's Mugan mold. This time they are coming out as G1 Blaster, Shockwave and a recolor of Perceptor that's in TV series accurate colors.
