Titans Return Deluxe Wave 4 - What's In The Case?
RAC - Monday, January 30, 2017


Titans Return Deluxe Wave 4 is shipping from selected retailers, and ExVee's got them! While he's hard at work on galleries and reviews, we're going to take a minute to reacquaint you with all five members of this Deluxe wave! You heard right: for the first time in a very long time, we've got a wave of Deluxes with five members! Keep reading to learn more about Quake, Krok, Sergeant Kup, Perceptor, and Topspin!

Quake was originally a Double Targetmaster who has died in at least three different comic continuities - and probably more than once in the original Marvel G1 continuity. Described in his original Tech Specs as a destructive berzerker, Quake's original Nebulan partners were named Tip-Top and Heater. Titans Return Quake, a recolor of Deluxe Hardhead, has a Titan Master named Chasm.

Krok is getting his very first alt-mode as a retail toy. Introduced in the G1 Action Masters subline as a mecha-soccer star whose kicks were as strong as 7.0 Earthquakes, he had a robot alligator buddy named Gatoraider. More recently, he has been featured in IDW's cult hit More Than Meets The Eye as a member of the Scavengers, a team of misfit Decepticon deserters. Titans Return Krok, a recolor of Deluxe Skullsmasher, has a partner named Gatorface - a name which probably does less to cause electrolyte imbalance in corporate lawyers.

Sergeant Kup is everybody's favorite cranky old drill sergeant, seen in pretty much every G1-derived continuity as a mentor to younger bots. He remembers the time back on Earth in 1987 - or was it Nebulos in 2007 ? - when he was partnered with a Targetmaster by the name of Recoil. He's had a new toy relatively recently, but these days he's an all-new Deluxe mold and working with a Titan Master name of Flintlock - named for a technology several hundred years newer than his traditional musket laser. (Though in fact muskets were in use for hundreds of years and were made in flintlock varieties.)

The verbose Autobot Scientist Perceptor is among a handful of personages considered difficult to render accurately within the sensibilities of a modern action figure product line. While his previous incarnation was that of a so-called "Scientific Expedition Vehicle," the current rendition of Perceptor has returned to his previous alternate configuration, that of a microscope. And a fully-functional one at that! Perceptor has a Titan Master companion designated as Convex, and is singular among products of the Titans Return Deluxe assortment in that he has a second alternate mode, that of a (rather haphazard) tank. This is a reflection of his original release as a Microchange action figure.

Topspin is the first new version of G1 Topspin since 1985. Originally one of two G1 Autobots known as Jumpstarters, he was also featured as a member of the infamous Wreckers. His Titan Master partner is named Freezeout, and the Titan Master alone is roughly equal in complexity to the original Topspin toy. His G1 mold was used for a figure called Salt-Man X, and the fact that we'll never get a modern version of a figure by that name makes me sad.

The official Transformers pages on Facebook and Instragam have posted a video announcing the new Fan Vote for 2018! Using the hashtags in this article's title on either of those sites and those sites only, you can vote for one of three two-packs to come in 2019's first chapter in the War For Cybertron trilogy: Spinister vs. Wheeljack, Impactor vs. Mirage, or Needlenose vs. Tracks! Keep reading to see the video.
Hasbro's people said during Toy Fair they have exclusives planned for Generations for this year, though they didn't reveal any specifics. Blast Off and Repugnus had both been discovered via leaked materials and distributor information, but it looks like at least one more figure may be joining their Special Edition ranks this year. Amazon.ca has a listing page for Deluxe Counterpunch, and while the currently attached price and some of the product info are a bit wacky, the associated product code makes sense compared to Repugnus and Blast Off. So what could we be looking at? Keep reading for another round of speculation!
We're capping this year's Toy Fair 2018 with the official images Power of the Primes Transformers action figures shown at this years show.

During Toy Fair this year, the Hasbro team gave the invited fan media representatives a special treat, in the first reveal of what the next instance of Transformers Generations would be. Power of The Primes is wrapping up in 2018, and with it comes the conclusion to what Hasbro referred to as the Prime Wars Trilogy. Part of the meaning of this is that 2019 will be the beginning of something completely new, a point they made very clear despite having few real details they could share. But something about the way they talked about it concerned me and got me thinking. The following is a speculative post, so if you'd like to join me on a journey of theorizing the future, please click through and continue reading!
The thing about rampant speculation is that if you open your mouth, you will almost certainly not always be right. But RAC has embraced that, and today he comes back to look over his own pre-Toy Fair predictions and see what happened and what didn't, and how close he got. There's only one category where he can claim 100% accuracy... keep reading to see what it is!
