Sorry, My Little Pony fans – “Equestria” wasn’t one of the final two armies revealed for the action-figure-inspired tower defense game.
Frankly, I think they cheated a bit – most of us assumed, probably, that “GI Joe” included Cobra, Dreadnoks and every other faction. But no: Cobra’s it’s own thing, which I suppose means that “Masters of the Universe” also doesn’t include Princess of Power or the Evil Horde, or even Skeletor. What is cool is that if you’re a good enough player, an animated Cobra Commander can finally win a battle.
And the other army is Assassin’s Creed. Is it NECA or McFarlane’s? I don’t know, and I suspect Ubisoft doesn’t care. Check out the trailer below.

Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
