It appears Hasbro is fulfilling, at last, the 30 year-old dream of a young man who would come to be known as Transformers fandom legend "Headmaster" Don Ferguson, the man who asked them year after year for a certain figure to happen. A leak from one of the usual Weibo sources has revealed the trading card art for Titans Return Deluxe Arcee with Leinad
! We don't know how or where this figure will be released yet, but there are some things we can make out from the art. Mainly? She's a remold. Keep reading for details! The major tells are the legs, and the folded up nose parts on her forearms. Though if this card art is accurate we may be getting a new nose/backpack part that may help her resemblence to Arcee.
This isn't entirely a surprise: as we're nearing the end of Titans Return,
the budget for entirely new molds has to be on the wane - particularly as Power of the Primes
seems to revert to the Combiner Wars
standard at the Deluxe and Voyager price points. But we're hoping that it's perhaps a better visual match than fellow female Blurr reuse Nautica was.
Titan Master Leinad
was revealed on yesterday's SDCC Trypticon poster. That's "Daniel" spelled backwards!
