It's been fairly certain that Titans Return Grotusque
, the complete surprise exclusive revealed during NYCC which quickly sold through at Hasbro Toy Shop, would follow Arcee's path and appear later at Toys R Us. And that has partially come true. Thomas Tam has posted on Facebook an in-store sighting at a Toys R Us in Hong Kong where Grotusque is being sold - seemingly with an open-box copy being used to demonstrate what you're buying in the effectively unmarked black boxes. Hopefully the North American branch will be following suit with website sales soon! Keep reading to check out the photos.
Via Kevin Liu on Youtube, a couple videos have gone up featuring the Power of The Primes Wave 1 Deluxe Dinobots. Slug (Slag) and Swoop are featured in typical style, but the real bonus to be had is a look at Grimlock (who doesn't have his own video yet) in robot and dino modes, and as the torso of Volcanicus while the limb modes of the Deluxes are being demonstrated. You can find the videos (in Chinese) embedded below, or jump down to our gallery for HD screencaps of the good parts.
Toys R Us Canada is joining the stock photo drop lineup with new images of Leader Class Rodimus Unicronus from wave 2 of Power of The Primes in a newly posted product listing. The toy is a redeco of Rodimus Prime, evidently with a modified Rodimus Prime head featuring a visor and thick robo-stache. The smaller Hot Rod component homages Shattered Glass
Rodimus in its hood deco and use of a purple Autobot logo versus the Decepticon emblems used elsewhere on the toy. Keep reading to see the high res stock images!
Just up on the official Machinima page is a new poster for the season 2 debut that kicks off tomorrow on go90. The poster for Perceptor, voiced by Wil Wheaton. Gives up his appearance will occur in the very first episode of Transformers: Titans Return. Where he is revealed to be making a startling discovery. We also get a nice look at Rodimus in a promo image for the kick off tomorrow. See the images after the jump.
on Twitter has snagged some Power of The Primes following their discovery at retail today, and has posted several photos of an opened Dreadwind. But this set of photos doesn't focus on the figure quite so much as the new accessories we'll be seeing throughout the line. So we get a nice look at the combiner hand, the secret of the dummy plug for its Prime Master slot, and front and back of this line's collector cards. Plus a little fun with a vintage Darkwing. Find all the photos mirrored below!
From retailer Forbidden Planet, we have a first look at several pieces of retail stock photography for the first wave of Power of The Primes. Excluding the Prime Master class for the time being, we have everything from Legends and up, including Windcharger, Beachcomber, Jazz, Dreadwind, our first two Dinobots, plus the Voyagers and Leaders whose photos we saw before, but now at a larger clearer resolution. Forbidden Planet lists a ship date from their suppliers as January 7th, which may give some insight toward general availability. We've got the whole batch of images mirrored, keep reading to see them now!
Coming to us from one of the recurring Weibo sources, we have two stock photo images of the packaging for Prime Masters Alpha Trion (wearing a Landmine Decoy Suit/Pretender shell) and Alchemist Prime with Submarauder suit. These present in package almost identically to the Titan Masters we've had for the last year and a half, simply swapping the "Decoy Suit" Pretender shell for a transforming vehicle. All signs right now are that we should expect to see the first trickles of POTP products hitting stores in the upcoming few weeks - hopefully with good distribution everywhere by the start of 2018. Click through to see the two images.
Japanese news site "Natalie" has announced a special limited edition of Cerebros/Fortress from the Titans Return
Fortress Maximus mold that will make absolutely no sense to anyone who's not up on Japanese TV comedy. RAC definitely wasn't, but he's discovered enough info to actually bring some context to what this weird thing actually is. Keep reading for all the details!
Autobase Aichi has posted more stock photo assets from the first wave of Power of The Primes, now giving us in package shots of the first Legends assortment with Beachcomber, Dinobot Slash, and Windcharger, plus the remaining photography for Leader class Optimus Prime and Rodimus Prime. Of note, this includes the individual Hot Rod vehicle form, which has not been played up very much since the reveal of the toy. You can find all these new images mirrored below!
The Facebook page TFCN has shared some low quality copies of retailer stock photos for upcoming Power of The Primes toys. We've got the in-box images for the Leader Class Optimus Prime and Rodimus Prime. We also have Voyager Grimlock in box, plus the basic out of package images showing the robot and dinosaur modes. So far none of these show an ill-conceived sticker-hell to match what we saw of Starscream just recently
, but there's always room to be surprised once these are out in the wild! Click through to see the images.
Machinima's Facebook page has been updated with a new behind the scenes video which features quite a bit of content from the soon to debut Titans return web series. The focus of the clips shown is the battle between Trypticon and Metroplex, with a few other random bits interspersed. This offers our first real look at whether Machinima's animation is up to the task of rendering the battle between two giant Transformers, and the answer may not actually surprise you at all! We've got the video embedded below, as well as screencaps from the new clips. Click through to see it all right now!
The usual Weibo leaker has posted three new images of Power of the Primes
Voyager Starscream! Besides an in-package image, we get to see the current ruler of Cybertron with his Prime Master bucklers/Combiner feet connected to his shoulders as mounting points for his Null Rays. The jet mode photo shows a few other interesting things... keep reading to see!
Iron Factory has announced on Weibo that in 2018 they will be adding a combining Decepticon Justice Division team to their Legends-scale toyline! Given the traditional names of the stars of Ursa Major, IF EX 31-5 are referred to as the "Spirits of the D.E.C." - whether that's their combiner name or just the team's designation it's difficult to say at this point, but keep reading to have a look at all five members plus their giant Tarn combined form!
Artist Emiliano Santalucia
has once again posted some of his concept art work for Hasbro to his Facebook page! Today's subject is Generations Titans Return
Deluxe Wolfwire, known as G1 as Weirdwolf. Besides his beast mode, we also get a look at the detail intended for the figure's cockpit compartment. Keep reading to see!
This morning brings our latest toy gallery for you! Slugslinger is the final new toy for Titans Return - at least at general retail - being the sole first-run figure in Deluxe wave 6. Though sharing a fair bit with Misfire
(but mostly by way of what both have in common with Triggerhappy), Slugslinger ends up feeling more than a little better in execution thanks to not needing to move quite as many elements between modes. If only it wasn't a color that is virtually impossible to duplicate digitally. But you can see over 150 photos color matched as close as possible - click through to head to the gallery now!
