Those of you who didn't get in on the blink-and-you-missed it preorder for Studio Series Leadfoot should have another option pretty soon! A fellow fan sent us this picture of a shelf tag with the simple description "TRA LEADFOOT", and the DPCI code of 087-16-8197.
We know Leadfoot is a Target exclusive figure in the Studio Series line, similar to the Voyager class Battle Damaged Megatron that appeared at Target last year. Given that Megatron's short period between announcement and being found in stores, with the additional caveat of his shelf tag showing up, we expect his release to happen within the next month or so.
Are you excited to see this pop up? Itching to complete your Studio Series Wreckers? Let us know below and have fun hunting!
Thanks to the TF Addict, we have a nice review of the Transformers Cyberverse Sinister Seeker Strikeforce 4 Pack. It contains Starscream, Thrust, Skywarp and Thundercracker all in their cybertronian forms (so they have knees, yay!) This pack can currently be found at Target, exclusively, and is priced just shy of $50. This review gives us a good look at the different decos, which include a lot of translucent plastic. Fellow Seibertronian D-Max also provided some really striking images of Skywarp, which we also show below. Tags for this set have been found at Toysrus in Canada though the set has yet to be found. You will let us know what you think!
"You should have worked with me... now.. I.. cannot.. help.. how.. much.. they.. will... suffer..."
"Starcream is just a weapon to be wielded." "If you ask me, he's more like a tool."
"Another one of your secret experiments that we know nothing about? Tell me more."
Just what you didn't know you wanted, but are getting anyway! The Twincast podcast crew takes a turn at discussing the newest, hottest Transformers Media; the recently released Netflix Transformers War For Cybertron: Siege. Don't miss out on ScottyP, Cobortron, and Tigertrack sharing some of their takeaways after watching the greatest Transformers show released on Neflix on July 30th, 2020.
If you are listening to this episode, you SHOULD ALREADY HAVE WATCHED the new Netflix series. The crew shares many spoilers throughout all 6 episodes including the finale!
In this episode, the 3 crew bots discuss many elements of the freshly unpacked show including plot and sub-plots, characters, voice actors and direction, surprises, wishes, and more...
-The crew also takes time to answer a listener question, this time from Mr Micromaster, who asks..."What are some characters you would like to see in Generations Selects and what molds would you like to see them use." This is a really fun question considering what we have, and what we've seen rumored, and we'd love to hear some of your ideas in the thread, too.
-And there's just enough time for some braggin' rights.

While the toys from Takara and Hasbro may be the same now, the distribution is completely the opposite. FOr those not in the know, the "mainline" Earthrise toys are exclusives in Japan while the Netflix series toys are not. It could be that Japan is going by the old addage of the main line being the one that ties directly to the prominant media, where one supports the other.
The good thing here is that it means people who missed out on Walmart preorders or who simply do not have Walmarts to buy the exclusive Netflix toys from have more options. Especially for exclusive retools like Elita-1 and Bumblebee.
Those two are currently available for preorder at Amazon Japan. They ship worldwide (shipping will be combined) and they are a bit less than $25 USD a piece.
The Netflix Transformers War for Cybertron Siege series is being well recieved by many fans and critics but you may be curious as to what some of the most prominant Optimus Prime voice actors had to say about it.
Firstly we have Garry Chalk, who was the voice of Optimus Primal in Beast wars and the voice of Optimus Prime in the Unicron Trilogy. Here is what he stated on Facebook:
"Ok I watched the first episode of the new Transformers on Netflix .....um...
Everyone tries to sound like a tough guy and as a result they all have the same pace and delivery. Visually it's pretty good but I am sorry the voices were kind of low energy."
And then we have Peter Cullen who was asked how he felt about other people doing Optimus Prime back in March (when conventions were still a thing that happened). He specifically mentions the Netflix series when mentioning that it hurts that he isn't the one doing Optimus Prime and that it is wrong for the production to be using non union talent in order to cut costs. You can tell he cares deeply for the character he voices and his legacy. Now, while it may seem like he is speaking ill of other voice actors or of the idea of others being Prime, his emotional responses are really towards the producers who are using cost cutting tactics that may hurt actors' wellfare in general. Frank Welker, the voice of G1 Megatron, also shares how wrong he feels it is for others to be hired when the known voice actors are available and willing to work.
There is now a video review for the Earthrise Conehead set. This is an Amazon exclusive and can be preordered there right now and it will be released in two weeks in the US. The review comes from Wotafa and is in Japanese, but it does give us our best look yet at the deco and details, plus it lets us know what the final deco truly is. Horus shared it on our boards and e-mailed us to let us know, along with other fine Seibertronians. We thank you all for these news tips.
For those who did not watch the show, we will reveal the biggest spoiler of the series before moving on, so you have been warned.
The infamous $50 Walmart exclusive Spoiler Pack had the words "spoilers inside" that referred to the Netflix series we had not seen yet and Hasbro had advised we only open it after watching the Netflix show. Now I see that the advice was sound. Not because it meant that we would spoil ourselves (which is probably what they meant) but because it would only make sense once we watched the show.
In the show, Ultra Magnus dies. It is a rather brutal death at the hands of Megatron and is what makes Jetfire switch sides.
Now that we know this, the toy's deco makes much more sense. For those who do not have the spoiler pack Ultra Magnus, the toy is made up of a lot of grey plastic with colour sprayed on. Many found the deco underwhelming as it didn't really look like battle damage. That's because it is not. It is Ultra Magnus having just been killed and his colour fading, making him become grey, just as Prime did in the original 86 film. Below is an image of the toy and you will see how that interpretation makes far more sense than anything else. The inclusion of rung, along with that pink colour scheme remains unexplained.
