Unleaded and Accelerator were released at Charticon 2013.

Reception

The Retro Robot Radio podcast for September 7th, 2013 covered MasterShooter Collectibles Unleaded and Accelerator in the news.[2]

Fictional biography

After their transforming mech suits gained sentience at the end of the master force war, Unleaded and Accelerator were left without a purpose in the giant robot war. Rather than abandon the Deceptive Constructs, they decided to find a new role to play. Their bracelets were reconfigured to change them into weapons instead of engines. Being used by the robots instead of piloting them will take some getting used to.
