that ghost arm just bugs the hell outta me. I would have bought it if it wasnt clear.

Looks great. I have no attachment to Armada in general but that Thrust is beautiful. I want four!

I don't mind the ghost arm, actually think it's kinda goofy and fun.

Roller sipping his juicebox is the energon bath is awesome!

I knew that didn't sound right, I couldn't remember what they relax in.

I'm surprised they're even relaxing in it considering the damage it did to Galvatron made him insane.

I prefer the Hasbro Cyclonus (i love that purple) but the new decepticon limbs are more than welcome. I wish they were sold separately..

Well...since they are basically becoming Galvatron, they have to follow suit with the boss' heh...

Also the fat "Grand Galvatron" holo from Headmasters is a nice touch. Every time I see that, I have to wonder about the theory that even though TF:TM wasn't released in Japan until 1989, they (Toei) must have known about it since their own studio animated it, and since TF 2010 (US season 3) had references & appearances by Unicron.

I think the appearances of dead bots in the early episodes of Headmasters is more just a lazy error and lack of communication more than flat out "not knowing" what happened in TF:TM.

That Grand Galvitron is confusingly, strangely beautiful. A bit out of my price range and not really fitting into my Sunbow/generations/IDW G1 collection so I wont be buying. But it looks awesome. That Breakdown is super sweet and Starscream's ghost was a great idea/mould use.

I really hope someone out there will make casts of Starscream's head though, I love the look of it. If anyone does make casts I will buy 3 for my FoC Seekers. As long as they fit correctly.

Well he was more machine than man last time we seen him after Starscream's "upgrades". You wouldnt think getting shocked would warrant all that lol, cold-blooded Starscream.

I was just thinking about it, and I have to admit I'm really happy that, between Takara and the Club, we're getting a couple combiners composed of bots from different factions.

"Combiner Haunt Leader" is a pretty loose interpretation of his Japanese title 怨靈破壞大帝 (onryo hakai taitei), too loose as "Combiner" isn't mentioned anywhere. It actually translates to this: "Wraith Emperor of Destruction", another variation to the classic standard.

Not a huge fan of Grand Galvs.
I like the UW Cyclonus, but that's about it.
The UW combined version's colors almost make him look like he could be an Autobot.

1. TT would be releasing him as Baldigus/Valdigus not Ruination.

Yeah, thats in the article:
Sakamoto said that he’s waiting for a Unite Warriors Baldigus release before saying any more about that.


2. TT would have nothing to celebrate this year (2016) as last year (2015) would have been the 15th anniversary of "Car Robots", they would have no reason to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Hasbro's RiD line.

The Tweet said happy birthday. And plus Takara is currently celebrating the 20th anniversary of Hasbro's BW line and not waiting till next year which would be the correct anniversary for them (they celebrated the 10th anniversary in 2007)

Maybe it has to do with the specific date the Tweet was posted. What was its date?
