If you have been wondering who the next Movie Masterpiece figure will be, you are in luck!

Bah-weep-graaaaagnah wheep nini bong!

Happy New Year to all of our Transformers: Earth Wars community!

Fight and Die

A special kind of spark brightens Kup’s eyes as he remembers that day…

Traitor by nature, Starscream stands over what’s left of his former master. Smashed and broken -but still fearless and hardened- Megatron offers him what he always wanted: an opportunity to show his worth.

Meanwhile, Motormaster storms the Autobots base in an all-in attack. Defeat seems certain and final… but nothing is certain when facing the might of the Autobots.
