Two new figures in the Transformers Age of Extinction Voyager Class series

Our pal Slog isn’t exactly known for his intellectual capabilities (even Grimlock can think circles around him), but his robotic prowess in battle is the stuff of legend! This hero is at times a machine, at times an Apatosaurus/Brachiosaurus hybrid, and as an ancient Cybertron warrior he’s definitely got the chops to merit a place in the Age of Extinction line. Hasbro manufactures this version of Slog as part of the third-wave Voyager Class series, and this 8-inch, window-packaged figurine is naturally the next addition to the Age of Extinction aficionado’s or aficionada’s collection.

We’ve also got Drift, too!

Slog comes with two large, lance-like weapons and two smaller clubs.

Takara Transformers: Starscream and Skywarp

I won’t profess to know too much about Transformers–I’ve always been a Batman fan and my knowledge of the DC Universe is generally my only area of full-on geek expertise. But if there’s one way to win me over to another fandom, it’s to put a cape on it. Which is exactly what’s been done with the two newest additions to our Takara Transformers collection. While looking for figures to post about, I read the words ‘crown’ and ‘cape’ and was already sold.

Frankly, though, I have to ask what the Cybertronian tailors are usually doing with their time because as I understand it, there aren’t a lot of occasions on which clothes are needed for the robots in disguise. But whatever the answer is, they’ve made some fine capes for these metal men and you can snag ’em now over in the Transformers section of CmdStore.

Also new from Transformers, look out for new figures from this summer’s Transformers 2, some Generation 1 reissues (like the Insecticons 3-pack exclusive) and some new items for the Encore collection. Check ’em all out!
