Hasbro Inc. recently revealed Volcanicus, a brand new Dinobot Combiner that is making its debut appearance today in TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS, the award-winning combat strategy mobile game available for free from Backflip Studios and Space Ape Games on the App Store and Google Play.

Volcanicus and the Predacon Combiner, Predaking, are part of TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS' Combiners Saga storyline, which kicks off today and features a new playable level and event story written by comic legend Simon Furman.

Following Volcanicus' debut in the game, Transformers fans will get a chance to assemble this brand new Combiner in Spring 2018, when Hasbro releases five new Dinobot toys -- Transformers: Generations Power of the Primes Voyager Class Grimlock, Transformers: Generations Power of the Primes Deluxe Class Dinobot Slug, Transformers: Generations Power of the Primes Deluxe Class Dinobot Swoop, Transformers: Generations Power of the Primes Deluxe Class Dinobot Snarl, and Transformers: Generations Power of the Primes Deluxe Class Dinobot Sludge.

not sure if that volcanicus is better or worse than that beast from the really bad dinobot combiner comic. Both assault my eyes in different ways.

I dunno. Maybe the toy version looks better (I haven't seen it combined) but that thing up there is a cluttered, badly proportioned, overly-colourful mass of crap. Dunno why the Dinobots have gotta combine anyways. It's ok to have a team of five bots who don't turn into giant body parts... The Dinobots were totally ok with not being combiners for years. And instead of really awesome new toys of those guys we get CW-type crud that look worse and cheaper than the original toys and have only the addition of extra articulation as a true benefit.

Oh agreed. The Dinobots never needed to combine. And for those saying they need to to fight Predaking? Nah. The Predacons couldn't beat the Dinobots in Marvel UK.

[quote]Hey there!

 I hope this email finds you in great shape.

 Here’s a digested version of what happened these last days in Transformers: Earth Wars. If you need assets for your posts, please click here. Feel free to use any of them!

 As promised, the ‘Unleashing the Beasts’ series continued! The 3 last episodes, “The Art: Bringing the Combiners to Life”, “The Story with Simon Furman” and “The Toy: How it all began” are live on our Facebook page and YouTube channel. Don’t miss out and follow our social channels for more!

 We “pressed the button” this Tuesday - Volcanicus and Predaking are now available in-game! Also, if you don’t have the bots to combine them yet, you can play them for free in the Challenge Battle. You can access this feature via the newsfeed section.

 Last weekend’s event was called ‘Stolen Secrets’, the start of the new ‘Volcanicus vs Predaking’ saga! It starred the leader of the Dinobots, Grimlock, and the leader of the Predacons, Razorclaw. Will the Dinobots be able to withstand the vicious pounce of the Predacons? Stay tuned as the saga continues this Friday!

 Click here to fight for the Earth. Will you join the heroic Autobots or the ruthless Decepticons?[/quote]

Holy crap...

360,000 points to complete this? That's like 9000 per member per alliance if it's full!

That is ridiculous. What was the combaticon one, like 250,000 or something like that?
