New Gallery: Combiner Wars Leader Class Armada Megatron

New Gallery: Combiner Wars Leader Class Armada Megatron

Armada Megatron - Behold! A full gallery of the recently released Generations Combiner Wars Leader class Armada Megatron! Though not a combiner itself, it still falls under the 2015 toyline, and much like deluxe Armada Starscream, homages the Unicron trilogy cartoon of the same name. The toy shares the mold with the more G1esque tank Megatron (stay tuned for more on that!), features a new antlered headsculpt and orange/green/purple deco, plus a firing missile, telescopic arm cannon and a big purple rifle gun.
New Galleries: Robots In Disguise Warrior Class Drift and Optimus Prime

New Galleries: Robots In Disguise Warrior Class Drift and Optimus Prime

Warrior Class - Another day, another gallery update! Today's subjects come from the upcoming Robots in Disguise (2015) Warrior-class range, Drift and Optimus Prime! Drift takes after his appearance in last year's blockbuster Age of Extinction, taking on the form of an orange futuristic sports car that converts into the most honorable of robo-samurais, giving Bludgeon a run for his money! Of note, the Drift featured in these galleries has a small touch-up on his face, his whiskers being Sharpie'd black for a more accurate look. Optimus Prime transforms not only into a truck (as always), but pulls a Motormaster and transforms into the truck and trailer! His weapon of choice in his robot mode is his mighty axe which seems to be an homage to his War for Cybertron incarnation.

An extensive retrospective on his long career can be read here. The staff of Seibertron.com offers its condolences to Nimoy's family and loved ones. He lived long, and truly prospered.
