Unite Warriors Grand Galvatron Team Member Bio Translations
ExVee - Monday, December 07, 2015

BlackMax on Allspark has done some quick translations of the bio blurbs from the TakaraTomy Mall page for Grand Galvatron. Giving basic background and origin info for the involved characters, there's not a lot of surprises to be found, but taken together they offer some context to the grouping of these characters as a combiner team. We've got the translations quoted below, so keep reading to have a look!
Tactician Cyclonus:

Emperor of Destruction Galvatron's loyal Air Staff Officer. Transforms into a Sci-Fi jet. Receiving a revelation from the dead Galvatron, Cyclonus takes Galvatron's spirit into his body and reformats himself into a new combination-capable "scramble body". Using the power of the Interstellar Emperor Unicron, Cyclonus summons from other dimensions warriors bearing strong malice and evil power. Using the combined energy of their malice, they seek Galvatron's complete resurrection!

Ghost Starscream:

Former "Number 2" of the Destron Army; known by all as a traitor. Transforms into a jet fighter. Wandering space as a being of pure spirit energy, Starscream was resurrected by the power of Unicron and sealed into a half-living-half-dead, insubstantial "ghost body". Now, his insubstantial form radiates the malicious energy generated by his hatred of his murderer, Galvatron. He appears to be cooperating with Cyclonus and Galvatron, to whom he owes his resurrection, but his true nature remains unclear.

Curse Armada Thrust:

Destron warrior from another dimension, he is known as a cool-headed strategist. Transforms into a jet fighter. Once crushed to death during Unicron's transformation, Thrust harbors complicated feelings towards being summoned and resurrected by the Unicron of another dimension. It seems like he secretly plots to somehow use the revived "Grand Galvatron" formed, in part, by his new "scramble body" to get his revenge on Unicron.

(Translator's note appears in italics)
Zombie War Breakdown:

Decepticon (yes, it specifically calls him a Decepticon) warrior from another dimension, he is adept at destruction. Transforms into an off-road car. Killed by his comrades and forced to suffer the use of his corpse by human, Breakdown's incredible malice would not allow him to die. Instead, he roamed the earth as a zombie until he was summoned by the Unicron of another dimension. Resurrected in a new "scramble body", Breakdown faithfully obeys the orders of his new master. However, in his deepest thoughts he dreams of reuniting with his former partner, and secretly longs to return to his original dimension.

Wandering Roller:

Wanders the space between dimensions after being separated from his comrades in the heat of battle, he was originally a Cybertron warrior. Transforms into a 6-wheeled armored vehicle. Roller's spirit was destroyed by absolute solitude while awaiting rescue by his sole comrade. Believing himself abandoned by his trusted comrade, he became ruled by despair and self-condemnation to the point where he eventually carried strong malicious energy. That energy was sensed by Unicron, who brought him to this world. His memory is patchy due to his long wanderings, but he still bears an incredible hatred for the symbol of the Cybertrons: Supreme Commander Convoy.

Thanks to SurgeOpressor we have a sighting report of the new assortment of Cyber Battalion figures featuring Shockwave and Sideswipe, plus some new photos of Shockwave. The figures were purchased at a Walgreens in San Francisco (of which we assume there must be a staggering number all told) with at least one other sighting in the same area indicating the beginnings of distribution for the new wave. They're priced the same as their predecessors at Walgreens, around $18, though it seems to vary by location. Click through to check out the new photos.
We've got a quick few images on Weibo giving us our first in hand look at the new Cyber Battalion Sideswipe. Part of an assortment with the brand new Shockwave, Sideswipe has been accused of not entirely representing the typical look of the character, and now we have a clearer idea why: It shares fundamental engineering (and probably some of its parts) with Prowl. While many parts look brand new, some of the inner body structure does seem to be shared between the toys, and they seem to transform identically. You can get a good look at the pair side by side in the new photos to compare them for yourself, click through to see!
This evening via twitter, Flame Toys has shared some new photos of an early sample of their upcoming figure of Tarn. Tarn is the first of IDW's Decepticon Justice Division to get an official, licensed figure representation, albeit a non-transforming one. Flame Toys reports that they've finally finished the color master as depicted in these images, which should represent what the full production run will look like later on. We have the photos mirrored for your convenience, check them out just below!
Thanks to Weibo user NOTRAB. We have look at the Transformers Power of the Primes Optimal Optimus figure. The Beast Wars Maximal Transmetals II design figure is finally seen out of package. Giving us a look at what the final production edition will look like. Read on to see the figure out of the box in his robot, ape, and jet modes after the jump.
