Generations Video Review
We've got another video from John Garringer to share. The newest review is Twinferno from Titans Return Deluxe Wave 3. This figure represents the Monsterbot Doublecross, who probably had his most prominent appearance in fiction in the Japanese The Headmasters
cartoon. This video shows off both modes, a walkthrough of the transformation, and some handy height references with other Classics-style figures. The video is embedded below, so take a look!
Thanks to Matt Guzy from Awesome Toy Blog, we've got a full video review series for the just-released in the US Liokaiser Combiner Wars boxset. Unique retools make for a reimagined take on the Transformers Victory combiner character, centered around Dezaras, and featuring an Arms Micron extra team member. The full series is collected together in one playlist for easy viewing, and we've got it embedded below. Click through and start watching!
John Garringer has uploaded a review video to Youtube for Triggerhappy, from Deluxe wave 3 of Titans Return. Besides being obviously really nicely styled as all the photos so far have demonstrated, the video conveys an extra strength of the figure in showing a really interestingly engineered transformation that starts to break out of the recurring pattern Deluxes had started falling in since Combiner Wars. The video is embedded below, check it out!
Diecast from Radio Free Cybertron has come through once again with an early Titans Return review! This time on his Youtube channel he's showing us Titans Return Wave 3's Hot Rod, a very long-awaited updating of the character. For those keeping score, this is the first new Classics style mold for the character since 2006! Diecast does report some mild individual QC issues on his copy, but hopefully those won't be prevalent in the overall production run. We've got the video embedded below, so click through and start watching!
Our very own TMan978 on the forums brings us another CHILL REVIEW. This chill review has been a long time coming, as we get a look at the Walgreens Exclusive Transformers Titans Return Brainstorm & Teslor. Read on to see the full video review below.
Since we got a deluxe G2 Prime in Reveal The Shield, I was hoping for a larger scale version that looses the movie aesthetic. With this Titans Return figure, we get that, and it is good. While I would've preferred a separate cab and trailer, I fully understand the design choices we got. The only real negative I can find are the loose hips, but those aren't nearly as bad as they could be.
Diecast from Radio Free Cybertron got in a special little something over the weekend, a small fleet of Legends Class Titans Return Gnaw. The delightfully design-faithful updating of the G1 movie Sharkticon is shown off in a full length video review on Diecast's Youtube review channel, where you can see some good size comparisons and a run through of the transformation from robot to tooth monster. We've embedded the review below, so you can get a good look at the toy that everybody is going to want to troop build!
Coming to us from chefatron on Youtube, we have some quick look videos of Titans Return's Deluxe wave 2! This assortment finishes out the basic Decepticon Headmaster team with Wolfwire (Weirdwolf) and Mindwipe, and adds Chromedome and Highbrow to the Autobot group. Opinions overall of this batch of figures is high from this reviewer, making it sounds like Titans Return has found a definite strength of design in the Deluxe class!

Youtube user chefatron has gotten hold of some wave 2 Titans Return toys and has presented some video reviews to show them off. Alpha trion is a decent first look, showing the sometimes surprising and interesting ways the transformation works that weren't always evident just looking at the early photos and convention displays. And Astrotrain... sure is a recolor of Sentinel Prime, for better or worse! The two reviews are embedded below for your convenience, so click through and get watching!
Hardhead was one of the original Headmasters introduced during the Rebirth miniseries.
I've always felt a closer connection to the US fiction than the Takara version, where the smaller robots were the characters who combined with transforming vehicles.
Takara as usual has enhanced the experience with a cartoon accurate deco and face, while including a repainted Titan Master vehicle to round out the pack.
The Legends set is the better value but may be harder to find at this point.
Ah yes, when Summer feels the hottest it's time once again for SDCC. With the lines for panels filled with A list celebrities who want to be anywhere else, showing trailers that are just slightly more than a title card, are even longer lines for baubles and trinkets in pretty packaging that drives up the price almost 100% over retail. The Titan Force set from Hasbro features an orange sherbet version of Sentinel Prime, and the first release of Deluxe Brainstorm. Prime is Prime, only more translucent. Brainstorm is an extensive remold of Deluxe Blurr. Brainstorm will be available at Walgreens at some point, but in a different deco.
The Titan Force set box is really nice looking, featuring an embossed front and back. The instructions unfortunately are printed on paper, which is fine, but the print is shrunk down and combined with the dark colors, ends up hard to read. Windblade is a vast improvement over the Generations version of the mold, and I personally like the blue and gray color scheme. If you're looking for the retail release I'd go with the Takara version, which is closer to the animation design.
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!
The last figure from the first wave of Titans Return Legends Class figures has gone up in the latest video on the Starblight.de Youtube channel. Stripes is the figure from this batch that's gotten the least love, and while the video is not completely positive toward it in every mode, this does give the impression that Stripes may be at least a little better than photos would lead you to believe in its bestial robot mode. The video is embedded below, so click through to start watching!

Once more from Youtube channel Starblight.de we have a new review of Legends Class Rewind from Titans Return. The video gives a general overview of the figure through its three modes, and does call attention to an important point or two in the design that should be kept in mind, such as the weapon storage. We also get a good look at the new pack in tech spec cards, and generally a nice look at the figure. We have the video embedded below, so keep reading and have a look!
