Titans Return Grotusque With Fengul & Titan Master Scorponok - TFormers Generations Gallery
Having managed to stay under the radar for who knows how long, Titans Return Grotusque was announced and simultaneously listed for sale on HTS on the Thursday morning of New York Comic Con. Three days later, we're bringing you a full gallery of the set, which includes Grotusque, his Titan Master Fengul, and the fourth and (presumably) final die-cast Titan Master Scorponok. We've got nearly 200 photos of the set in the gallery below! Keep reading for more info and a few "chapter" links!

Some quick info about the set:
Grotusque shares parts with Twinferno (Doublecross), but is rather extensively different. The only parts shared by both toys are the weapons, the body of the Titan Master, the cockpit hatch, the wings, and the legs in their entirety.
Parts of the torso are detailed similarly to Twinferno, but also feature new sculpt and detail elements indicating the shared details must have been purposely reproduced.
The Titan Master Fengul is based on a Battle Beast - or more to the point a Beastformer character from The Headmasters
, much like Twinferno's Titan Master Daburu. In this case, Fengul is modeled after Platinum Tiger by way of fairly extensive deco and a new head with sabretooth tiger attributes.
Grotusque is intended to be able to tab the guns to the sides of the monster mode head for storage in robot mode. On at least my copy, the tabs would not fit. Testing with Twinferno's accessories seems to indicate the problem is with the slots on Grotusque, rather than with its instance of the weapons. The instructions (do not very clearly) indicate storing the weapons in this way, but it may not work in practice. Tread carefully else you may end up with many stress marks as I did.
Titan Master Scorponok is the same body type used for Thunderwing and Ultra Magnus. Delightfully, the Scorponok face is very based on Andrew Wildman's art of the character as seen toward the end of the Marvel US G1 comic run.
