Before the current "Generations" line existed, there was a small series called "Classics" which launched the modern day line of toys that took G1 characters and updated them with modern day toy design. In this initial line Optimus Prime was a truck and Megatron was a blaster, as it should be! Last year these two figures were given snazzy new decos and released as a Platinum Edition two pack. Now the set has gone on sale (again) at Amazon for the low price of $38.42!

Game News: Space Ape announces this weekend's event - "Out of Control"

Bah-weep-graaaaagnah wheep nini bong!

The Rust Renegades set out on a mission to find Slog. Fight to find out if they succeed and earn up to TRIPLE XP!

Out Of Control

Accustomed to Slog’s wanderings, the Autobots weren’t surprised when they heard Slog may be stuck somewhere in the Rust Desert. Clumsy Dinobot!

But the Rust Renegades aren’t so keen about Slog’s trespassing and launch their own mission to intervene.

Finding Slog won’t be an easy task… especially with Decepticon activity in the area!

Start Date: 12/05/2017 11:00 UTC
