Takara tomy has sent TFSource information on the Japanese Generations TG-31 Rhinox and TG-30 Waspinator! We know these are almost assured to have US releases as well, and exactly how the Takara versions differ is unknown at this time.

This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Takara provides new photos of Kup with corrected hue. Does this change anyone's opinion on this toy? (Hint: Yes.) Also on the show we talk about the return of Robots in Disguise on April 29th, the awesomeness that is the upcoming dinosaur Bumblebee toy, Transformers coming to Carnival Cruises, Magna Convoy, more last Knight toy details, and more. Plus we have a discussion about why we still do this to ourselves? If distribution is so bad, and prices keep rising? Why do we still collect? We round out the show with the return of a segment from over 15 years ago, Bad Poet's Corner. All that and more on this week's Radio Free Cybertron!
