UPDATED: Titans Return Arcee is back in stock at TRU's website! Though it's not possible to order yet, ToysRUs has posted Titans Return Grotusque and Scorponok's product page to their website! Plus, if it goes live soon, the price will be only $19.99 instead of $24.99. A good deal! While you refresh obsessively, check out ExVee's Gallery and click through for a link to the page!
It's that time again! The first Power of the Primes Deluxes are hitting now at certain Target stores, and so it's time to take a look at what exactly we're getting. Short version: Dinobots, Jazz, half of a G1 Powermaster power couple, and Combiners are back. Keep reading for what's in the wave!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: Tons of interesting topics including MP-41 Dinobot. Are you laying down the $250? Also we have some new Power of the Primes stock photos. How do these differ from what we saw at Hascon? We discuss it! We share our thoughts on the Titans Return trailer from Machinima! Plus we catch up on listener questions and comments! All that and more on this week's RFC!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: It's November and the holidays are on the way! We start off the show with two ways that you can help kids in need! Please consider this year's Extra Life videogame stream and/or our annual toy drive--this year dubbed "The Last Knight Before Christmas!" We share details! Also on the show Fansproject is seemingly back from the brink with the missing Dinobot from their Lost Exo Realm line! Plus we have details on HASCON 2019 (yes, 2019), hands on details with new Takara Tomy Legends toys and way more on this week's Radio Free Cybertron!
HASCON returns in 2019... Er uh, what happened to 2018? Just a guess, they are waiting for another Movie year with Bumblebee and MLP closer to the show. In any case, they have decided to let us know two years in ahead of time the second convention will be held at the same time and place as before.
While good for Hasbro, it is a kind of shame they are not going to stage the event for others around the country. Otherwise, this is just an initial announcement with more details you can read after the jump.
Note that date: the official Transformers Facebook page has just announced that a second HasCon will be happening September 6-8th, 2019. At the moment, no other information is available, though Hasbro thanks fans for "making (the) first HasCon a huge success". More information as it becomes available - but with us being two years out, that could well be a while. In the meantime, keep reading to see the announcement!
It's that time again: New York Comic-Con is over, and so now it's time to go over what exactly we know about the figures in next year's Generations line, Power of the Primes. At this point, it's quite a lot! Some blanks were filled in at NYCC, some leaks confirmed, and even a couple minor surprises as to the nature of the Deluxe and Voyager accessories. Keep reading to see it all!
Here is a quick update from www.robotkingdom.com.
1. Starting from 11th September 2017, for all Star Wars orders over USD60 will come with a FREE Star Wars plastic folder as GIFT!
For all Star Wars orders over USD120 will come with a FREE Star Wars notebook!
NYCC is happening now! Yes, already: barely a month after HasCon and the week after TFCon, we've got another major convention happening. Twitch TV is streaming presentations from the event, and Hasbro's Transformers presentation is scheduled for between 11:15 and 11:45 this morning, so hopefully we'll see some of it! Keep reading to see, and we'll update with info as it happens! PS: Note that some of the ads and other content on the stream are likely NSFW.
Fans at NYCC will be able to get the Titans Return Arcee 3-figure set a few days early at this year's NYCC. It will be available for presell at booth #110, Toysrus NY Comic Convention Fan Vault, from Thursday, October 5 to Sunday, October 8th, while supplies last, to be sure. No word on price, but it hopefully will be the same as retail.
So as of about 10 days ago at HasCon, it's official: Power of the Primes, the third and final leg in the Prime Wars Trilogy, will return to combiners! And we're fine with that - or so say the row of Combiner Wars boxsets RAC has in his room. Combiner Wars was fun, and produced some good toys... but it wasn't perfect. There's room for improvement, and he thought of some areas that it'd be nice to see Power of the Primes address. Keep reading!
This week on Radio Free Cybertron: HASCON is over, TFCon is next week, and NYCC is the week after! We are here to keep you up to date on all of the Transformers news, opinion, and analysis that you need! HASCON exclusives came and (mostly) went today at HTS, did you get yours? If you didn't get your Arcee, you should participate in our 18th anniversary contest! Also on the show Toys R Us moves forward with bankruptcy, new Transformers statues are coming your way, That Takara Tomy Cogman you were banking on has been delayed and way, way, way more!
One of the more immediate questions post Has-Con was "so if Arcee is going to retail, then where and when?" We now have answers to both those questions: ToysRUs, October 5th! The embattled retailer has put up a page on their website announcing the figure and when it is scheduled to be sold. And the page also makes mention of in-store availability! Keep reading for details!
This nearly slipped past us yesterday! The @tfwiki Twitter has posted a photo of the resin Volcanicus prototype from HasCon that shows yet another way to dispose of your two spare hands. See, Voyager torsobots are now going to ship with a pair of dedicated feet, and each limb will have its own separate hand. But there's another way to stow them, one that might even be more beneficial than padding out Dinobot Combiner Volcanicus' torso. Read on to find out!
HasbroToyShop now has all the HasCon exclusives up for sale! "First Sale" Titans Return Arcee with Leinad and Power Bank Optimus Prime are both up for grabs and in stock as of this writing! SDCC Exclusive Primitive Skateboarding Optimus Prime is even back in stock - but don't expect that to stay the case for long. Keep reading for a link!
