The Official Transformers YouTube channel has updated with a brand new Designer Desk video aimed at Australia, giving us another peek into the Aerialbots and Stunticons, AKA Superion and Menasor. This is not the first they've been featured in the Designers Desk video series, as we've just recently reported on their appearance, which you can read about here.

Design Manager John Warden takes center stage yet again to briefly discuss the two combiner teams and you can see the video by clicking on the embed below:

I've noticed that John Warden has taken the lead on this last batch of Design Desk videos. Where did Joshua Lamb go?
I really hope my old signature didn't discourage him from being a part of these vids.

Dear Joshua,

I just want to apologize for any harm I may have done to your feelings. You did a fine job on the video. Although your facial expression may not have matched the sentiment you were conveying, that gave me no right to make you the butt of my joke. In fact a truer statement could not have been made. It is indeed, "a real fun way to play with Transformers". I haven't had this much fun with my Transformers in a long while.
Let's chalk it up to misguided hero worship. Heck, I would kill to have your job. Why you, John, and the rest of the TF design staff are not treated as Rock Gods is beyond me. I wish you and your crew much success. Keep up the great work. You guys are killing it right now!

No hard feelings?
With much respect and admiration,
your #1 fan,
Cobotron

Duuude. Seriously, that's awfully nice of you, but I think you give yourself too much credit. You weren't the only one who made comments on his appearance in the video, so if it was such a thing, it wasn't just you. Still, cool that you'd take that step.

No, most likely what happened was he's either behind the scenes now or moved onto a different department. It's not uncommon for Hasbro to play Musical Chairs with their staffers, a lot of the teams are moved around and broken up from time to time. Although, getting rid of Kyde and Archer was pretty big...

You know what would be a great third party upgrade for these guys? Adapters that allow Energon (and by extension TFC) limbs to connect to CW torsos. That way you could put TFC Groove on Defensor if you don't like rook, or buy the Uranos limbs and replace the godawful TFC Silverbolt with the CW version.

Well than, may my apology extend to all those who poked fun at someone who deserves our respect.

Through a reliable source with first hand experience, I have heard that the corporate structure and culture in the design departments at Hasbro is super competitive and down rite cut throat.I asked my source his opinion on why the TF designers aren't idolized like they are in Japan, and he answered, because Hasbro will not stand for it. Take from that what you will.

I've always hoped that Archer left on his own volition, possibly due to said culture. But, that is all speculation on my part.

Anyway...
Viva La Guerras Combinador!!!! :D

1st one, 1st page, 2nd post.
The other 2 should be easy to find via the front page news. They hit last week, I think.

OK, if you notice the white plastic sticking out is the head/chest piece for robot mode. If you're ok with that sticking out cool, but there's no way for it to fold flush with the hood like that. I'd also stress caution as those hinges are pinned in and the wrong kind of pressure could cause damage.

Well since Adventure Nemesis Prime has been delayed I bit the bullet and ordered Slingshot and Wildrider. It'll be interesting to see how they look in hand.

I note in this video, the guy did NOT try to rotate Menasor's arm in his socket. Due to weak tabbing, trying this without keeping a grip on the Motormaster sections of the torso will cause them to pop loose....

Ya! You know, Prime doesn't have this problem. I think MM wears the mold better than Prime, but he is a sloppy mess of noodlieness. :-(

Once again I have to state that if you're posting reviews in the reviews forum, DO NOT POST THEM IN OTHER DISCUSSION THREADS. It's akin to spamming.

In my opinion, Cyclonus is a good remold, but I could to give a sense only like Sweeps team body.

...and Rook has found his collocation in the historical group, carrying all Defensor components. ^ ^

Is there any online store other than Robot Kingdom with the Quickslinger and Brake-Neck up for order?
