Entertainment Weekly has just posted a story about Comixology's new monthly subscription service, Comixology Unlimited!

We're not sure yet which ones or how many, but keep reading for details!

After giving us in hand photography earlier today, Kal El has posted the first review of Titans Return Fortress Maximus on his Youtube channel.
While it doesn't cover the transformation processes, the 25 minute video does give a general look at all three modes, the articulation, a before and after with the sticker sheet, a demonstration of the electronics, and a quick run through of the Cerebros and Emissary components. It's a lot of information, and more may still be coming!
The video is embedded below, so click through and take a look!
Somebody actually bit on Myers' $100 AUD over retail markup, looks like! Twitter user @Kal_ElofKrypton has posted a series of images of Titan Class Fortress Maximus and is promising video soon. Among other things, you can see a comparison to the original Fortress Maximus' head, and to Titan Class Metroplex (who is actually taller by a shoulder-gun)! Keep reading to see.
Along with Wheelie, Goktimus Prime has uploaded a video showing Titans Return Rewind. The Legends figure draws lots of inspiration from the IDW comics as shown in the robot mode. The video also shows the data tablet and tank modes, as well as giving a look at the screen sticker with cassette "wallpaper" based on the deco of the original G1 Rewind toy. You can click through to take a look at the video, embedded below!
A small amount of Titans Return merchandise has hit retail in Australia, and we haven't had long to wait for fans to start showing them off. From Goktimus Prime we have a Youtube video featuring Legends Class Wheelie.

Thanks to Steve Watts - aka Sharky who has posted to the Ozformers Facebook group with new in hand photos of Titans Return Wheelie, part of the first Legends Class assortment that was found at retail in Australia.
These photos give a good sense of the difference between a Titan Master and Generations 2014 Brainstorm's Headmaster, as Wheelie's occupant compartment is entirely unable to accommodate the older head robot. We're expecting more photos to follow in the coming days, so stay tuned. Keep reading to see the photos!
