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.
This week: Masterpiece Starscream 2.0 breaks our brains. Also: Lots of new toys in-hand. Golden Lagoon, uh, and more stuff. The News Masterpiece Starscream Ver. 2 Details And More in Figure King Pages First Look At Leaked Images of Kingdom Ractonite And Repacked Arcee Not sure why, but Golden Lagoon stuff hits Hasbro Pulse
Yes, yes, go ahead and make the Blitzwing joke; I'll wait. Ozformers was finally able to get their exclusive reveal event underway after some unavoidable delays, and even better, they managed to bring us an entirely unspoiled surprise! They showed off Studio Series 72 Starscream, a Voyager based on the Cybertronian battle scene in the Bumblebee movie. Preorders went up a little while later, and Starscream is due to hit stores next summer, around the start of July. Despite visual similarities between it and Blitzwing in their robot modes, Starscream is said to be an entirely new toy. But in this often baffling age of toy design, that still might not mean the two are entirely unrelated, engineering-wise. Thanks to all of our Patrons who are making this possible!

Rob's back in a post-Halloween hangover to tell you all about the Transformers. Well, Transformers SCF to be specific. He also talks about various Universal Studios stuff, the hidden Micronauts Kreon he discovered, and how he became a creepypasta by accident on Halloween night. There's a lot to unpack here and don't you just hate it when people say that?
This week on Radio Free Cybertron, we have so many new toys, and we want to tell you about them. The News Transformers Galactic Odyssey Set 4: Barricade & Punch-Counterpunch
This week: It's that time again! Let's help some needy kids! Also: Oh, hey, lots of new toys. The News Official Images Of Walmart Exclusive Retro Headmasters RFC News Desk 121 – Studio Series Fan First Friday
14 reveals, and only 1 we didn't have specific knowledge of in advance. The latest Fan First Friday has wrapped up, and they came armed with a lot of upcoming product announcements to cram in the half hour runtime of the stream. The full first wave of Studio Series 86 was shown off, though not every toy had a production sample on hand today. Jazz, Kup, and Blurr for the Deluxes, and Hot Rod and Scourge at the Voyager price point were shown off. Leader Grimlock had design CG shown, but a sample wasn't available due to some deco issues. The preorders begin today, and the figures are planned for release in February. They showed off the boxed set version of Studio Series Devastator too, with minor deco modifications and a giant display backdrop. As of posting it's already up for preorder on some retailers for $259.99. Walmart is getting a series of Titans Return rereleases, featuring the TakaraTomy version Headmaster heads, and with new decos. The first wave consists of Chromedome, Hardhead, Brainstorm, and Mindwipe, and they're supposed to be released in January.
This week: Studio Series, Bluestreak, and confusing typos. The News Earthrise Bluestreak Found at Walgreens Studio Series 86 First Looks – Grimlock, Jazz, and Blurr Dr Wu Galvatron and Soundwave
This week: Photos of Generations Selects Abominus and Barricade, Netflix Nemesis Prime, and MP Starscream 2.0! Also, Diecast finally gets his Unicron tattoo!

Happy Halloween! Rob's back for another Halloween edition of the podcast. Join in for talks of Kingdom and Botcon past. Then stay tuned for Halloween Keshi and blind bags before Rob talks about a few favorite costumes. Get a pumpkin spiced something and pull up a chair! We're going to talk trick or treating!
Well, sort of. Photos were posted to Planet Iacon showing a Barricade version of Earthrise Smokescreen, displayed with a TakaraTomy Generations Selects box. So while an offering via Pulse may well happen too, it seems like the Earth form for Barricade is going to be an exclusive for Japan. Does make you wonder about that Walmart listing for what was believed to be a Netflix Barricade from some months ago, doesn't it? Thanks to all of our Patrons who are making this possible!

This week on RFC: PulseCon, Kingdom, MP Seeker 2.0, Gigawatt, and a squirt gun. The News PulseCon Transformers Kingdom Reveal Panel RFC Extra 050 – Hasbro Pulsecon Masterpiece Starscream 2.0, Gigawatt And More In Figure King Magazine Pages Transformers Prime 10th Anniversary Official Images - Breakdown & Vehicon, Hades Megatron Transformers G1 Megatron P-38 Walther Returns as a Water Pistol! Transformers 2015 Combiner Wars Devastator Reissue
The guys catch up with everything that happened at Pulsecon!
This week: Holy crap, Pulse Con exclusives pre-sale went extremely well. What kind of witchcraft is this? Also, incoming reveals. Official and...not. The News Just Before PulseCon, The Official Kingdom First Reveal RFC News Desk 119 Transformers Prime 10th Anniversary set revealed PulseCon Full Schedule Studio Series 86 Factory leaks: Hot Rod Kup Scourge
A surprising number of questions answered! First up we have the reveal for the contents of that Transformers: Prime 10th anniversary product. Contrary to all logic (and package labeling) it actually is a two pack, and what's more it's reissues of two Arms Micron-exclusive molds: Breakdown and Jet Vehicon. The set is on sale now in The Philippines, and Eric John A Cruz from Cybertron Philippines posted photos of the package contents. Over there it's being sold for the equivalent of about $82. Compared to the aftermarket pricing on these two, that'll be a steal if it comes out for the rest of us at a similar price. Next up, we have details of PulseCon's panel schedule. Two Transformers panels will take place next Saturday, the 26th. The first is a Peter Cullen and Frank Welker panel, which sounds like a trip down memory lane of recording for their characters. Following that is the very directly-titled "Transformers War For Cybertron Kingdom Toy Reveal!" panel. The whole first wave of Kingdom will be shown off, and more. They mention reveals for exclusives, which will probably cover everything we have left due up for release in 2020. They also mention celebrating an unnamed tenth anniversary, so hopefully we get preorders for the Prime anniversary pack at that point too. Finally, they'll be carrying out this year's Hall of Fame ceremony following the product reveals, and John Warden will make his official departure from Transformers. That's going to be one busy panel! Look for wrapup coverage of that sometime next Saturday. And in the meantime, let's hope the leakers take a vacation so we get some genuine first looks directly from Hasbro. Thanks to all of our Patrons who are making this possible!
