Titans Return Chaos On Velocitron Boxset Hits ToysRUs Website! So What's In The Box?
RAC - Wednesday, April 05, 2017

Thanks to TFU.INFO for the tip! Toy hunt got you down? TRU's website can solve that one for you! The Chaos on Velocitron boxset featuring Quickswitch, Laser Prime, Nautica, Fastclash, and diecast Titan Master Rodimus Prime is now up on the ToysRUs website for the SRP of 99.99. While distribution seems to be evening itself out, you can save yourself a lot of gas by clicking through and getting the link to the item!
Quickswitch - Sixshot's Autobot son - is made from the Leader Class Sixshot mold. He has a new Titan Master faceplate, but unlike the package images still uses Sixshot's helmet.

Laser Prime - Based on Titans Return Voyager Optimus Prime - is the deco the mold was more or less intended for, putting him much closer to the G2 figure for which he is named. Luckily, the stickers on his tanker trailer are significantly better than the ones on the "Spychanger" retail release of the mold.

Nautica is Purple Blurr with hoverjets and a new face. ...okay, that's not entirely fair. Nautica is the first toy of the popular More Than Meets The Eye/Lost Light character, and for a boxset recolor is really, really well done with plenty of paint to go around. It's not the perfect rendition of the character, to be sure, but the Blurr mold is still among the best.

Fastclash is the first of the Autobot Clones. Formerly known as Fastlane, he transforms into a futuristic car. Roughly Legends sized but more solid feeling, his brother Cloudraker will come in an as-yet unannounced future boxset.

Rodimus Prime is... a head. Well, a Titan Master. With diecast face and body! QC varies greatly, but when you hit the lottery on that the head looks very, very good, and is extensively painted, perhaps even to TakaraTomy levels!

Thanks to SurgeOpressor we have a sighting report of the new assortment of Cyber Battalion figures featuring Shockwave and Sideswipe, plus some new photos of Shockwave. The figures were purchased at a Walgreens in San Francisco (of which we assume there must be a staggering number all told) with at least one other sighting in the same area indicating the beginnings of distribution for the new wave. They're priced the same as their predecessors at Walgreens, around $18, though it seems to vary by location. Click through to check out the new photos.
