i still think the armada unicron + all the repaints and the G1 retool of the same toy
was the best, this Gaia one is a disappointment it could have much more awsome by making it at least a supreme class and not combine with megs or optimus which i don't understand why
they do combine it makes no sense

Maybe it's a form in which Unicron possesses them?

Look again. It's a horned volcano with his face in it. The chrome part represent lava flowing down.

I really don't know what to make of this guy anymore. Robot mode is pretty good apart from the split spiked glove thing. Combined mode is poor. What's the point to it anyway? It's too bulky to fly. Doesn't provide extra armour. And as far as I can tell there's no extra weaponry. Alt mode is still a mess. Regardless of what it's meant to be, it sucks.

The more pictures I see, the better I feel about my preorder. This is actually pretty cool as he transforms into a volcano as well as having his face be part of it, similar to the shows concept. Also, if you use your imagination (as I believe they intended), the "wings" in volcano mode look like lightning bolts striking down. I for one am excited.

Turns out the so called "combined" mode is actually a "capture" mode.

they should have made him a massive cyberverse play-set were you have a large robot form that turns into a base or volcano in this case and have traps and such for the cyberverse figures
make it bigger than the maximus prime set

The altmode is designed to work with the cyberverse figures. Robot mode is a figure, altmode is a playset. Dual-toyline figure. ;)

He just gets worse with each new viewing. Partsformer? Bleh.
The volcano mode is making more and more sense, I even have to give them credit on the lightning bolts thing, but still hasn't sold me on it.
The robot mode might be the only saving grace to it.
The capture mode (makes a lot more sense with that title) still looks ridiculous.

If I ever do buy it, I'll wait for the prices to go to clearance. If at all. It's actually rather hideous.

It looks like it may just be one piece (the head/horns piece), as the weapons must detach from the arms for their gimmick to work.

after looking through all the pictures its designed more for the arms microns not cyberverse
its just way too small of a toy to work with cyberverse and before you say im wrong
show me how you think this has anything to do with cyberverse

I do like his robot mode, nice and shiny, spiky evil right there. Volcano alt mode...I wasn't overly impressed at first. Then I remembered the UK comics where Galvatron had his volcano exploder thingy and now the idea of the alt mode is kind of vaguely appealing. IF (and that's a big, planet that eats other planets sized IF) I do get it, I don't see myself ever even bothering to figure out the "combined" mode though.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.
