Radio Free Cybertron - All of our Transformers podcasts!
Summary: The Original Transformers Internet Radio Show and one of the world's first (if not THE first) podcasts. We've been online since 1999. We discuss topics from around the Transformers world, bring you the news worth talking about, provide insight and commentary. We are the official podcast of TFormers.com.

The second wave of the Velocitron Speedia 500 Collection has started to hit shelves. In New Zealand, to everyone's surprise. This has given us the chance to both verify that the previously leaked Crasher is in fact being sold as Crasher! Plus it gives us our actual first look at the toy known in listings as "SHADOWS", which has been believed to reference the legacy name Shadow Striker. Except it turn out it didn't. It actually meant G2 Dragstrip. Or maybe a new character inspired by G2 Dragstrip? We don't really know what's up with this, especially since we didn't even know this specific thing existed before about five minutes ago. But hey, at least the age of surprises isn't totally over, right? Photos thanks to python5003.

News Chris McFeely covers the earliest draft of TFTM (twitter) Toy News: "Buzzworthy Bumblebee"/"Rise of the Beasts" Energon Escape 2-Pack Revealed - Because Brian put it on the thumbnail Hasbro Pulls Back: Hasbro (HAS) Stock Down 19% in 6 Months (Yahoo Finance) May bounce back, projections are based on the entertainment areas, but uh… Hasbro Considers Sale or Restructuring of Entertainment Assets (Bloomberg) It sounds like Brian Goldner was mostly the champion of making Hasbro an entertainment brand, and the new leadership may not be as convinced after his passing. Concrete plans to be announced, but the leading options are focus eOne exclusively on in-house IP, or sell most or all of the eOne assets off. Hasbro To Change Their Toy Distribution Strategy (TFW2005) Unclear if or how this will affect collector lines, what TFW has reprinted it sounds like the overall totality of product won’t change, but maybe grouped differently and staggered more to absorb logistics challenges more smoothly. Also: We’re probably getting SG Perceptor (functionally the same as Magnificus), per a listing on an overseas alleged-theft site that’s broken news on a bunch of other toys. No pictures yet.
