    Like the subject says. I was googling for info on Autobot Leaders, and I thought he popped up in one of the results. I tried looking for the info again yesterday but I'm probably not getting the search terms correct. Can anyway lay down some info on this guy?

    Thanks!

    Did Operation Combination even have much of a story?

    As far as I've been able to determine, it took place simultaneously with Battlestars; while Star Convoy was fighting Megatron in outer space, Guard City was fighting Battle Gaea (whose toy is a repaint of Bruticus) on earth. The toyline consisted entirely of European Predators and Turbomasters in addition to the aforementioned two.

    Oh yeah, it did introduce a bunch of new micromaster combiners; Sixliner (who was a repaint/remold of Sixtrain...or was it the other way around?), Sixturbo, Sixwing and Sixbuilder. All four of those were repainted into Hasbro's Universe line ten years later (as Railracer, Defensor, Superion and Devastator).

    I don't think I can ask for anything more than the actual comic. Thanks for the links JJ!
