With wave 1 having only hit a few weeks ago now, amazingly we're already seeing a first video review for wave 2 Titans Return product! Chefatron has posted a Youtube video featuring Soundwave from the second Leader Class assortment. The Blaster retool gets a nice show here, highlighting some of the changed parts, and displaying it in all three of its modes. It even features some of the data tablet toys of Soundwave's minions (sold separately) to top the whole thing off! The video is embedded below - click through and watch!
Poseable, well-sculpted and with a tiny nod to his IDW self, Rewind's a couple of arm hinges and the usual foil problems away from being excellent. If you don't care about the phone mode, he is
excellent for all intents and purposes. But those hinges are a bit distressing in how quickly they've become distressed. Click here to read and watch the review!
Our next review is also the next retread of 2010 Generations alongside Blurr. Scourge and Fracas is likewise more consistent with the classic G1 look of the character apart from that whole removable head thing, and generally comes out quite nice. But it still needs a bit more paint than it got. Click here

Man, this thing is a mess. Stripes shows just how hard it is to get a decent toy of an organic shape like a cat out of a rectangular alt mode. It makes a decent lifter for your Titan Masters, but otherwise there's far better things you could be spending ten bucks on. Click here to go to watch and read the review!
I've got the blues, which is at least one more than is present on Titans Return Blurr's deco. While the toy may not be a visual treat, the design is solid, and bodes well for future iterations. In the meantime if you're comfortable doing some touch up painting, this will make a nice, virtually blank canvas! Click here

You can call him Terri-Bull, or you can call him Horri-Bull, but you can also
call him the second-best figure of the wave. Today RAC wraps up his coverage of the first wave of the Titan Masters pricepoint, and declares it a success! Click here to go to watch and read the review!
We're reviewing Titans Return Deluxe Wave 1, starting with Skullsmasher, better known perhaps as Skullcruncher. With a great underlying design and an excellent crocodile mode, the only thing really hurting it is some bad plastic tolerances. You can click here
to proceed to the review page, with video and our text and photos coverage of the toy. And stay tuned because we have lots more Titans Return reviews coming soon!
RAC continues his look at the Titan Masters price point with the Deceptions. First up: Crashbash! Who is the best of Titan Masters Wave 1, easily, turning into a dragon rider, a dinosaur, and a gun that looks like the back end of a dinosaur. If you only get one Titan Master, get this one.

The big bot is the central figure in the Weaponizer sub line featuring lights and sounds, that are somewhat hard to control and can go off at random. Transformation is simple, but not simple enough to justify the small sheet of instructions, that are only one sided. Overall the figure looks cool, and thanks to some well placed swivels, can get into some good sword wielding positions. Most collectors will turn their noses up at this figure, but Prime cuts an imposing pose and is a lot of fun. Keep reading for the embedded video!
The second entry in the Titan Masters Wave 1 assortment, Nightbeat is weird. Shooting for G1 accuracy but doing so with a bizarre expression and not enough paint, this seems like a compromise that isn't going to please much of anybody. Click here to go to the review!
Windsweeper is an update to the old G1 Triggercon. Unfortunately it uses one of the most overused molds of Combiner Wars; thus out of box, Windsweeper is a floppy mess. Thankfully the figure is meant to be a leg, and holds together in that form. If you're completing Thunder Mayhem Windsweeper is a necessary evil; if you're a die-hard Triggercon collector, you can pass on this figure.
The new Titan Masters price point of Titans Return, gives you a new head and weapon for your larger robots as well as a tiny robot and tiny transforming vehicle all at once. It's like you got Headmasters and Micromasters back at the same time! Today, RAC opens up his look at Wave 1 with Loudmouth, AKA Siren! Click here to go to the review!
There's been another murder in New Iacon - and as far as the public knows, the Badgeless are responsible. How can Starscream maintain order if nobody trusts the police? And are there even any other Cybertronians willing to go along with Starscream's definition of order? "Applicable Skills" is written by Mairghread Scott with art by Sara Pitre-Durocher and coloring by Prisiclla Tramontano. Click here to go to the review!
We're happy to bring you the full review for Titan Class Titans Return Fortress Maximus! It's an interesting toy that in large part will win or lose on how one values a playset piece, since that's the main success of the alternate modes. Apart from that you have a great big robot that will dominate any display - or display room
- it's placed in. You can find out more now by clicking here
to find our video review, right alongside the text and photos version. Go have a look!
As our coverage of Titans Return Fortress Maximus continues, we're moving up to Cerebros, the next-biggest head! Who becomes a bigger than average robot, as well! Cerebros contains all the electronics of the set, which may be both a blessing and a curse, especially since it has one of the highest annoyance level sound functions this side of Energon Scorponok. You can find full details of that in our video review, which you can see right now alongside our text and photos version here
