Game News: "Earth Wars" Bombshell revealed

Thanks to the folks over at Space Ape, we now have an exclusive look at Bombshell from "Earth Wars"! Here's the profile for this master of psychological warfare!

For Bombshell, warfare is all in the mind. Once he sinks his stinger in someone's head and injects his enslaving cerebro-shell, that being is his to command. Bombshell loves nothing more than entertaining himself by making his victims embarrass and debase themselves, before sending them (normally) to their deaths. Equally as effective against humans as robots, Bombshell is one of Megatron's most valued warriors.

With the Australian release of Fortress Maximus, many fans have asked many times about sound effects with Fortress Maximus. The figure has been advertised as having sounds, though exactly what sounds Fort Max himself has we're not too sure of yet. That said we do know Cerebros has the classic transformation sound! Check out my video below from Toy Fair 2016 that shows off this feature:

Toy News: "Titans Return" Fortress Maximus released in Australia

According to a post on TFW2005, the big guy himself, Fortress Maximus has been released in Australia! The figure was sighted in a Myer’s store in Perth, Australia retailing for $360 AUD (approximately $260 USD). Keep in mind however that Australian prices tend to reflect twice the price of their US counterparts.

This cunning Predacon is a master manipulator who should never be underestimated. He is just as proficient in combat as he is planning strategies and manipulating others to achieve his nefarious goals all towards the goal of restoring the glory of the Predacons and Decepticons!
