Decepticon leader MEGATRON is the latest addition to the amazing Transformers Prime Dark Energon Voyager Class (that’s a mouthful!). Check him out and read all about him:
Each of these translucent figures is the result of exposure to Dark Energon, which twists the mind and powers the body, eventually corrupting and destroying the user. With the Decepticons trying to use the Dark Energon to take over earth, Optimus Prime and the other Autobots are forced to expose themselves to it, so that they are able to take on the Decepticons on their own terms. Will they be able to defeat Megatron and his crew in time for Ratchet to reverse the process, flush the Dark Energon from their systems and save them from a horrid fate?
Translucent figures show the effects of Dark Energon infusion – Unique paint schemes of fan-favorite characters – Autobots and Decepticons have taken on new faction logos: Autobot Dark Energon Defenders and Dark Energon Decepticons

RAVAGE and RUMBLE make up this new 2-pack imported from Japan. Part of the Takara collection, it’s a duo you’ll have to see up-close to believe, with the articulation and detail sure to impress. Here are the write-ups straight from the source:
Cassette Warrior Rumble is a runt of a Decepticon with a Devastator-sized temper, a temper which is fueled by ridicule coming both from the Autobots and Rumble’s fellow Decepticons. Rumble loves destroying anything in his immediate vicinity, and fortunately his piledriver arms enable him to generate blast attacks and powerful quakes, which makes him one of Soundwave’s more valuable followers.
The most mysterious warrior in Soundwave’s cassette entourage, Ravage is a silent, brooding presence, frequently working alone. He is generally more deliberating than Frenzy. A feral adversary possessing an almost preternatural penchant for stealth, Ravage is versatile enough to be equally valuable in open combat situations and in darker endeavors requiring subtler sabotage.

If you’re a transformers fan who goes for the best of the best, then look no further than this amazing rendering of SUNSTORM.
A flaw in the manufacture of Sunstorm’s fusion reactor provides him with the approximation of a transcendent glow, simultaneously causing him to emit terrific heat and electromagnetic waves which damage the internal systems of any fellow Decepticons within his vicinity. Barring the installation of elaborate shielding to contain his corrosive emissions, Sunstorm frequently works alone, and this solitude ostensibly fuels his conviction that he, Sunstorm, is in fact a supernatural being; when in the presence of others his professed supernatural status and subsequent pontifications only succeed in further alienating his teammates. Sunstorm reaches an atmospheric speed of 2400 km/h and 16000 km/h in outer space.
The MP-11S Masterpiece Sunstorm measures 13” long in jet mode and stands 10” high in robot mode. Featuring a ton of articulation for optimum poseability, the figure also boasts arm-mounted guns (removable), decals, missile accessories and a sweet missile-rack display base, which supports both robot and jet modes.

What’s cooler than a giant robot in a sweet cape?
This new version of Masterpiece Starscream appears to have resculpted and recolored parts, and also comes with the crown and cape from his coronation after the supposed death of Megatron.
The jewel-studded Coronation crown and billowing purple cape depict Starscream’s absurd flourish just before the arrival of the vengeful Galvatron. An intricate mixture of plastic and die cast, the MP-11 Masterpiece Coronation Starscream features arm-mounted guns. Following the calamitous Battle of Autobot City, Starscream finally fulfilled his vainglorious quest for leadership after opportunistically casting the battered Megatron adrift in space. Among the remaining Decepticons gathered in Astrotrain’s cargo hold, Starscream’s self-nomination for Decepticon leader triggered a secondary battle for leadership between Soundwave and the Constructicons. Later, on Cybertron, on the lilting current of a pompous coronation ceremony, Starscream was reverently presented with the resplendent leadership crown—only to be completely destroyed by Galvatron prior to the oration of what would have undoubtedly been a profound morale-boosting inaugural speech.

Peter Cullen, the man behind Transformers’ Optimus Prime, gets the star treatment on today’s RIPT APPAREL design. The voice actor pulls a Superman in the illustration, which is sure to give you plenty of cred among fans of the Robots in Disguise. Plus, $2 from every shirt sold goes to the Hasbro Children’s Fund, making this a choice that’s as kind as it is cool.
