The rest of Hayato Sakamoto's Megatronia tie-in comic has been released! And there's some serious weirdness within. When we left off, MegaEmpress had separated Grand Galvatron and Lynx Master with her rail cannon. Now MoonHeart uses her "Healing Pheromone" ability on the defeated Autobots, and... it just gets kinda weird. Keep reading to see!
Chinese-language toy news site Toy-People (motto: "I Have More Toys Than Your Kids") has posted images of a new Asia-exclusive sticker sheet for Titans Return Wave 2! Sporting stickers for the Deluxe, Voyager, and Leader classes, the set is maybe not as desirable as the Wave 1 set with its remedies for low-contrast figures like Scourge and Blurr, but there's some very nice touches on here as well. Keep reading for selected photos!
Autobase Aichi has posted some sample pages from a Unite Warriors Megatronia comic by Hayato Sakamoto! Perhaps the most interesting part is how they've decided that MegaEmpress' ladder is a railcannon specifically designed to disengage the limbs of combiners. Neat concept! Though it's entertaining to watch her intimidate and terrify UW Cyclonus as well. Keep reading to see the images.
Thanks to Oku we have a first look at the third wave of Titans Return Deluxes on card! While Breakaway (Getaway) is only shown from the back, we do get direct looks at the other three figures - Hot Rod and Firedrive, Triggerhappy and Blowpipe, and Twinferno and Daburu. Twinferno is a renamed Doublecross, while the Titan Master has been named based on the Japanese phonetic pronunciation of the English word "double". A rumor appeared early this morning that wave 3 might be available as early as November, and these package samples seem to support that idea! Click through and take a look.
Emiliano Santalucia has posted the original art for Generations Alpha Trion to his Facebook page! Interestingly, Santalucia reports that these sketches were done years before the Titans Return line and at that stage, there was no intent for there to be a third mode. The lion mode also looks a fair sight more organic than what we ultimately got - and it's a pity we didn't get that nifty staff. Keep reading to see the images!
Brawn has needed a good update pretty much forever. And the good news? He's got a really great toy here with the best weapon mode the Titan Master vehicles have yet produced. However, it's definitely not the proper update you probably hoped for. It could be the start
of one, though - all you have to do is pick a body for him. Click here to see the gallery for Brawn!
Apeface is a Titan Master with a few minor weaknesses... when taken as just another Titan Master set. But taken as a World's Smallest Transformers
Apeface, he's pretty great. Plus all three of his Titan Master vehicle's modes - gorilla, jet, laser crossbow gun thing - are at least decent. So he's definitely worth your five bucks! Click here to see the image gallery for Apeface!
TalaraTomy Mall has updated the listing page for UW-EX Megatronia, the Decepticon redeco of the Victorion components. A sample image of the packaging gives us our first look at the box art for this set, which follows the particular stylistic cues we've all come to expect of these pieces at this point. Along with this are updated stock photos for the toys, showing minorly tweaked colors that we can expect to be more in step with what the actual toys will look like once the set is released in late December. You can keep reading to see all of it for yourself!
Artist and designer Emiliano Santalucia has posted some new pieces to his Facebook page. The latest offerings feature his original design work for Titans Return Powermaster Optimus prime. While between this stage and where the toy eventually went, details were altered for various purposes, you can see a great deal of this design is reflected in the final toy. And in some small parts it seems like TakaraTomy's Super Ginrai may have adopted other aspects! Click through to see the art.
TFW2005 user Lambi
has posted a photo of a new Titans Return advertisement spotted in a Melbourne bus stop! It's a really nice image of Galvatron, and since the initial posting artist Marcelo Matere has come forward to let us know he did the lineart for the image. Keep reading for the image and the Tweet!
Sage, scribe... swordsman? Alpha Trion's looking a bit more aggressive than we last saw him. Taking as much or more inspiration from a pair of collector's club figures as it does his original character design, Alpha Trion has his charms... but I'd be lion if I said he was my ideal rendition of the character. Click here for 84 images of Alpha Trion!
The final stop on our photographic tour of Titans Return Deluxe wave 2 is Wolfwire - better known I'm sure as Weirdwolf! And with this, the main "teams" of both Autobot and Decepticon Headmaster characters is complete with just the first two waves of product gone by, a fact sure to make collectors quite happy! This might be the end of the galleries for this assortment of Deluxes, but the reviews are up next, so stay right here with us for more on these toys. And click through now to see our gallery of 131 photos of Wolfwire/Weirdwolf!
We're back with the next entry in our photographic coverage of Titans return Deluxe Wave 2! We start on the Decepticon side of the assortment with Mindwipe. The first real updating of the character in Classics ...ever? Mindwipe does some neat tricks and feels suitably different from the toys around it. Just watch out using that cockpit in bat mode, it's really tough getting Vorath back out of there once you tab him in! We have over 120 photos, so jump in and start checking this toy out!
Twitter user @tief_v has shared a nice piece of customization work. Starting with the basic framework of Fun Publications' attempt, tief_v has made an idealized Combiner Wars Ravage that homages both of the character's Alternators toys. With some clever use of a new-build spoiler for the car and an Energon Battle Ravage head, this figure can adapt both a quadruped animalistic robot mode, as well as something that's basically the base figure's natural robot form. It's a really elegant piece of work that we just had to share, so click through and see all the photos below!
Citing a source they have declined to credit, Allspark has posted a set of in-hand photos of Combiner Wars Liokaiser! The upcoming Entertainment Earth exclusive features the Voyager Sky Lynx mold, as well as Deluxe Air Raid and Skydive... and two Brawls. But everybody looks good, and every single figure in the set has a new headsculpt! Keep reading for the images, mirrored here for your convenience.
