Hasbro wrapped up their final Botcon product preview panel this year with a tease of the long-awaited Overlord. Now thanks to frequent source Mr. Chaos who has relayed more store computer info, we have confirmation of that figure and its status as a Leader Class figure! Overlord's assortment is to come after Sixshot, which should mean wave 4. More interesting is the other figure in the assortment, listed as Sky Shadow. Could this be the name for Sixshot's recolor/retool? Or might this be an all new mold? With luck, New York Comic Con may tell the tale in another month's time!

It's been a while, but by way of one Mr Chaos who has related reliable information in this area before we have some info on future product assortments for Titans Return. Coincidentally verifying Broadside, whose color testshot we got a first look at yesterday, we have some additional Voyagers, Titans Masters, and a Legends assortment to look forward to! You can find all of that information in the full article below, so keep reading and let's see what's up!

By way of Previews World, we have news of a case revision you'll want to know about! Titans Return Deluxe wave 2 will have later shipments seeing the return of the wave 1 Deluxes, with one each of Hardhead, Scourge, Blurr, and Skullsmasher. These will ship alongside two each of Chromedome and Highbrow. Though it's often hard to predict how prevalent remix cases like this will be at general retail, it's probably a good idea to make sure to get Mindwipe and Wolfwire (Weirdwolf) as soon as you can. Might this feature Skullsmasher with improved joint tolerances? Or just be extra chance to army build Sweeps? Let's wait and find out!

Since the debut of Machinima's Combiner Wars animated series, a couple of interviews have turned up giving some behind the scene insight to the cartoon. First we have a piece from Comicbook.com with producer Eric Calderon that touches on some of the development. Next is a quick interview by ComicBookMovie.com, talking to Amy Johnston who voiced Maxima, Windblade's companion who made quite an impact in her appearance in the first webisode. We've highlighted some selections of both articles below, so keep reading to check it out.

TFCLUB on Weibo has collected together some of the information revealed from Cybertron Con, some of which we're hearing for the first time. Among things already known to us are Liokaiser's status as a Platinum Edition set, and apparent acknowledgement of the gun-to-submarine transition in Sixshot, we have some really interesting hints about things that maybe are yet to come in Titans Return, and even beyond? Keep reading to find out more!

From a variety of sighting reports it looks like the Titan Master assortment is finally appearing at brick and mortar retail in the US. Both of the first two assortments are being found at different stores, with Target seeming to be the current store of choice for wave 1, including Nightbeat, Crashbash, and more. Meanwhile Toy R Us seems to have skipped ahead to wave 2. For those looking for a hunt, we have the Target DPCI number for this new pricepoint, and a link to an inventory tracker site to help point you in the right direction. Keep reading!

Adam Pawlus of 16bit.com and Entertainment Earth has posted to his site about the upcoming Platinum Edition Liokaiser! He's clarified that the price on Liokaiser will be closer to $119.99 - a bit higher than the average Combiner Wars boxset but not unreasonably so in our opinion. He also said that, to his knowledge, Liokaiser will close out the Combiner Wars line in the US. Click on through for more info!

Walgreens toy buyer Steven Anne has responded to questions on Twitter concerning the timeframe for the release of the pharmacy chain's exclusive Transformers release, Titans Return Deluxe Brainstorm! Anne has said that they're shooting for November, so those who saw the preorders dated for August can breathe a bit easier for now. Keep reading for details!

We're just out from the Machinima Transformers Combiner Wars panel. Here is the report from the panel with many of the producers, and voices actors from the show that will debut on August 2, 2016. Read on for the full report below with lots details and previews.

It's been questioned and suspected since the reveal of the San Diego Comic Con exclusive Titan Force set. But with Hasbro's reps at Botcon being tight-lipped about it, there was just enough doubt to cause some worry. But it looks like we can rest easy as we have evidence now for the general retail release of Titans Return Brainstorm. While the SDCC version will have unique coloring, it looks like there will be a much easier - and less expensive - option forthcoming for this retool! Keep reading for more info and photo evidence!

Site sponsor Robotkingdom has put up a preorder page for a new release of Unicron! The Platinum Edition preorder, set at $129.90 USD, is due to arrive in December. Not much else is known about this upcoming figure, but we'll tell you what we know and what we can safely assume after the jump.

We have a tiny bit of new info about TakaraTomy's use of the Combiner Wars Sky Lynx mold. Revealed in the customary silhouette, their as-yet-unnamed take on Sky Reign seems mostly similar to the US version in molds, save for the replacement of Smokescreen with a use of the First Aid body type. Today offers no greater insight to character identities, but we do have the product code, UW-EX, and a date for orders to begin, June 9th. This looks like another TakaraTomy Mall exclusive - though as usual we expect mainland Asia to be general retail for easy import. Stay tuned for more info!

A short time ago this evening we may have finally had the release date for Deluxe Class Groove revealed to us! The US release is an online exclusive as part of a second "May Mayhem" event, following the official retail debut of Victorion this past weekend. Tonight Amazon listed their own stock of the previously TakaraTomy-exclusive figure, showing a price of $16.99, and indicating a ship date of May 20th for the pre-sale figure. That has since been taken down, but there's a good chance that indicates the intended sale day! Stay tuned for more updates!

Twitter user @chromless is bringing us more photos from Transformers fest, going on this weekend on Japan. The first three Legends Series Titans Return figures, Hardhead, Skullcruncher, and Galvatron are on display, and we get some nice detail shots on them, including the Deluxes' new faces. Also seen is Unite Warriors Blast Off and a quick glance across the rest of the Combaticons and Bruticus, and a final stop with TAV 50 Hyper Surge Optimus Prime. Keep reading to check out all the mirrored shots!

Thanks to Amazon we have another round of stock photography updates. This batch brings us three Legends class figures: From wave 2 we have Ravage, mold-mate of wave 1's Stripes, featuring a new character-specific head, and Rumble, remolded from wave 1's Rewind. This batch also helps us finish out the wave 1 photos by giving us a look at Wheelie's final product stock photos. All are currently unavailable, and we still don't know quite when Titans Return will hit in force, other than "summer" sometime. We have all the high res images mirrored below, so keep reading!
