If you cannot see the Army Card graphic, check Hasbro's Unit Page for stats and special powers, plus "character biography" and other non-game unit info.

Character Bio:Alpha Prime is now a war-torn husk of the glorious world that used to be. In a time now lost to history, a brilliant race thrived there. The planet was then called Mariedian. With technology the Mariedians ended crime; with technology they ended hunger; and with technology they ended war. Life was good. Hard labor was preformed by the Robota, complex machines design to perform arduous tasks. It was one grief-stricken scientist who after losing a child to a fatal accident, changed that beautiful world’s history forever. In an effort to save the child from death, he twisted science to preserve the soul of his child in the metal encasings of a Robota. Thus, the Soulborg were born. Three Millennia pass, and now the Soulborg rule the planet, fighting among themselves in a constant state of war. Mariedians still exist, mostly as slaves on the prison planet Isadora. But there is a resistance. Small factions of Mariedians, driven deep underground, still fight the Soulborg. The Blastatrons, and their counterparts the Gladiatrons, were built to mimic the size, movement, and guerrilla fighting style of the Mariedian resistance— for the Mariedians continue to adapt and survive against great odds. While that disgusts many Soulborg, others envy those traits. (Hasbro)

-Rulings and Clarifications-
- GLADIATRON MOVEMENT BONDING : Using Movement Enhancements
When using the Gladiatron Movement Bonding, can the Gladiatron’s movement be enhanced by anything like roads, or auras to increase the amount of spaces it can move?
No. That is a static move value. The 4 Gladiatrons that you choose to move may move up to 5 spaces each, but cannot move any further. (Hasbro FAQ)

- HOMING DEVICE : What Vydar Soulborgs Apply
Can an opponent’s Vydar Soulborg figures adjacent to my target enhance my Blastatron’s Homing Device special power?
No, only Soulborgs who follow Vydar that you control contribute to your own Blastatron’s Homing Device special power. (Hasbro FAQ)
