In-Hand Images: EX Roller Master Vs. Chopper Master

Motto: "The Wreckers. Weird brain bullets. Impossible odds... It doesn't get much better than this."
Weapon: Sniper Rifle
Courtesy of our friend in Japan, Alfes, we have new in hand images of the recently released Transformers United set - Roller Master vs. Chopper Master. Roller Master is a repaint of PCC Icepick, paired with a repaint of the Minicon Chainclaw. On the other hand, we have the Autobot Chopper Master, who is a repaint of the PCC 2-Pack Searchlight with Backwind. Click the links for their respective photo-galleries!

The Allspark has also provided a translation of the story printed on the set's packaging, "In the Burning Alps":

Translation
In the deep snow among the Swiss alps, an Autobot helicopter, Choppermaster, hovered as he issued commands to four drones, which in turn struck their practice targets with unerring accuracy.

“Controlling these drones is no problem. The merge test should be a cinch."
The next moment, he was struck by a burst of cannon fire from the ground.

“How do you feel now, Autobot?"
As Choppermaster plunged to the ground and slumped down in robot mode, a Decepticon stood regally before him with enormous claws outstretched.
“You seem to have lost your vigor. Perhaps “Rollermaster” should seize those toys of yours… Unite!"

Responding to Rollermaster’s command, the four combat drones came together as his arms and legs. The Decepticon’s newly-formed Prime Mode wasted no time in bathing the training grounds in a sea of fire.

“Sorry to say, but that outfit doesn’t suit you!"
Choppermaster emerged from among the flames, his partner Firebug having converted into protective armor to shield him.
“I’ve heard that old folks can’t figure out the latest toys. I’ll show you how to play!"

Detaching from Choppermaster’s chest, a gatling gun emerged from Firebug as he slid into the Autobot’s hand. The next moment, Rollermaster was ablaze with flames.

“My body… it’s burning! What trickery is this, Autobot?!"

“You like the taste of incendiary gel? Guess nobody told you, I love playing with fire!"

The two continued their combat, unaware of the gaze focused upon them…

Not much to go on, but it looks like they're fighting in a snow storm.

So Rollermaster is Straxus, and Choppermaster is the Micromaster Blaze Master? Interesting.

Quite honestly, I with that Takara Tomy would have given the same treatment to the previous UNITED line. Because it is given that it is a new G1-based timeline, but I would have enjoyed knowing if they had intended to have Optimus Primal be Prime's second form or not (as the pre-Beast Wars canon intended this to be such). But I guess that will never happen, and I am glad that they are giving some kind of insight to the EX portion of this line. :michaelbay:

It would be nice to see some drone configurations on him.

The Hasbro(Con) version looks pretty nice with all the spinning blades.

All-in-all he makes for a good commander. There is a beast hidden inside each of these things. And, as much as I would like the Choppermaster I will stay happy with what I have and not spend a fortune.

I need more drones though :sad:
