So if you spend a lot of time staring at robot crotches - and we're not judging - you may have noticed that Titan Class Fortress Maximus is missing a certain... detail. If you really miss that red circle where the G1 toy housed the mechanism for its elevator, you'll be happy to know that DNA Design has got you covered. But that's not all the DK-04 kit contains, as you also get some new hip ratchets and a set of slippers that seem to add rocker ankles to Fort Max - and double as helipads for the alternate modes!

With the toy packaging favoring brevity, to put it mildly, the old days of character bios seem to be behind us. But where the packages are unable to provide, Hasbro is still filling in some extra info via their Transformers website. The various product pages for the first two waves of Titans Return carry generally at least somewhat enhanced character blurbs that offer a little more detail. Some of these have been seen previously, but for most of wave 2 we're getting first looks at things like Titan Master powers, plus some nice touches of flavor in the character writing. Keep reading for a collection of all the bios to date!
THUNDERCRACKER AND BUSTER SAVE THE WORLD! A DECEPTICON who wants to be a screenwriter. A dog who wants to, I don't know, eat stuff and chase squirrels or whatever dogs want to do. A White House under siege by DIRE WRAITHS. And the phone call that brings them all together. Just because OPTIMUS PRIME and SOUNDWAVE are leading the REVOLUTION doesn't mean the rest of the TRANSFORMERS aren't keeping busy!
It seems we have our standard look ahead a few months in comics, with the solicitations and cover previews for January's Transformers titles coming our way from IDW. Newsarama has the slightly early look at the solicits for the Hasbro license books, and relevant to us will be Optimus Prime
#3, which we saw a first look at earlier today with its excellent Artist Edition alternate cover, Till All Are One
#7, and Lost Light
#2. You can find the teaser text and cover images below - keep reading!
Comics Alliance has revealed IDW is planning a company-wide homage to the old-fashioned comic cover paste-ups of the past, in recognition of their successful "Artist's Edition" line of books that tries to faithfully reproduce comic art as originally drawn.
