If that means anyone's getting shot of a Cerebros, I might be interested.

I got a snicker at this idea. A massive blown up Deluxe to Supreme class. No change in transformation or articulation. Like some weird Chinese knock off sold officially in stores.

Of course it's not like Hasbro hasn't blown up smaller figures before into new size classes...

Possibility.

:)

Denyer 2015-11-14 03:18 PM

Cool, keep me in mind if you do. :)

Plex is my citybot of choice and I think works well with Infinitor, Evil Lord and WSTs. Great to see Hasbro trying the Titan Wars concept though.

numbat 2015-11-16 09:42 AM

Will do. Likewise, Metroplex is my fave citybot, and he does indeed work well with WSTs and Evil Lord. (Indeed, while getting a book from my study to take to work this morning I had a wee play around with Evil Lord, Metroplex and WST Anime Convoy...)

I just always wanted a Fort Max. Then I got old enough and 'rich' enough to consider buying one. And I realised Brave Max was better. But they're both crap. And very expensive.

I like that IDW turned him in to a normal (if on the large side) character, and Perfect Effect Warden is great. But I would go a Metroplex retool with good articulation that could use Warden as a head. I think that would be just awesome-sauce.

Denyer 2015-11-16 08:51 PM

Would be surprised if they got much reuse out of the first design. And even though the pic seen so far seems stretched horizontally, it's going to have to be generally wider in the body or a deluxe sized figure will look wildly out...

They did have lots of precedent to "borrow" from, but definitely agree -- it works better as a name than literal indicator of size.

DaimChoc's FB page has got lots of pictures going up today from various sources (lots of 3P stuff from a Chinese fair that I'm sure somebody else will collate properly in a bit)

Official-wise, there's what looks to be a Combiner Wars Hot Rod (Blackjack redeco), a G2 redeco of Bruticus and this Titan Wars Powermaster Prime:

I do like that Powermaster Prime. Favourite Prime growing up - I remember saving up money for a year to buy him.

Also liking the G2 CW Combaticons, but am really confused as to why they have the G1 Decepticon insignia. Shouldn't they have the G2 Decepticon insignia?

Clay 2015-11-20 09:08 PM

Apparently Powermaster Prime is a super-heavy-thorough remold of Ultra Magnus. Neat.

Also, there's supposed to be an online vote on Tuesday for the next Titan class figure - Omega Supreme, Trypticon, or Scorponok. I'm guessing Hasbro has rough ideas for all three and just want to see which one to do first, but I'd be surprised to see multiple Titan class figures in the same year.

According to the TFW article, whatever wins will be due back end of 2017.

Ah, well it looks like we'll only get one of the three, then.

Here's hoping it's Trypticon.

Or Scorponok. I'd be pleased with either of those two.

Titan Class seems too big for Omega Supreme, plus it would be good to have a huge Decepticon base to face off against Metroplex or Fortress Maximus - and the two Decepticon options are their respective nemeses.

Denyer 2015-11-21 12:01 PM

Maybe Takara will do the PM Prime with black shoulder cannons or the original ones will fit... doesn't look bad, though. It's a possible.

Brendocon 2.0 2015-12-01 07:03 PM

Trypticon won the poll, apparently.

Warcry 2015-12-01 07:41 PM

Good. Hopefully that means we'll get a Scorponok who's a reasonable size rather than an insane two foot tall one.

Yay!

Denyer 2015-12-01 10:01 PM

Logical since Metroplex is already a thing... and robot dinosaurs are ****ing cool, of course.

Hound 2015-12-01 10:13 PM

Agreed!

Sades 2015-12-01 10:50 PM

Ah ****, why do these people keep giving me reasons to want to spend money I probably can't really afford to spend?

That's a stupid question, me.

Seconded that. I was really hoping one of the Deceptions would win, but especially the giant robot dinosaur. It has nothing to do with my love of kaiju movies, I swear. >.>

inflatable dalek 2015-12-02 07:03 AM

At least this means he'll have to be a whole new toy. There was always the worry with Scorponok that they'd have painted Fort Max green, put some claws and legs on him and declared the result a scorpion .

Brendocon 2.0 2015-12-02 09:26 AM

Just you watch. Trypticon'll be Metroplex redone in grey with a new head, a tail and the arms shortened.

Nah. Just a new head.

numbat 2015-12-02 11:09 AM

Huzzah!

I'd have been happy with either Trypticon or Scorponok. Big-ass Decepticons are much needed! Also, they both turn into cool things (I'd be hard pressed to choose between a giant dinosaur or a giant scorpion to be honest).

It would be nice to see a decent Scorponok as well - what ever happened to Perfect Effect's Deathstalker? That would be perfect to stand opposite Warden anyway.

He's totally going to be a Headmaster, isn't he?

Tetsuro 2015-12-02 04:20 PM

I still say they missed a perfectly good opportunity not including a black repaint of Tailgate with the Platinum Trypticon.

So I'll be able to give random robots a comically over sized dinosaur head?

Red Dave Prime 2015-12-03 06:34 AM

Probably just be a bigger version of the snap dragon mould. With more stickers. Less phallic stomach thingy.

Sades 2015-12-03 07:07 AM

Pretender shell with a GoBot inside.

Battle Beast.

Chewy gummy candy.

Scratch and sniff sticker?

Red Dave Prime 2015-12-03 11:22 AM

Old vanished clear red plastic for back of the book japes.

You're welcome

A GoBot with a Pretender shell based on a Battle Beast?

Hound 2015-12-09 04:12 PM

yes

Knightdramon 2015-12-26 02:59 PM

Combiner Wars giftsets [G2 Superion, Menasor, Victorion] up for PO at Kapow, 89 pounds a piece.

Actually works cheaper than getting all the bots at those pricepoints individually.

Might get Victorion at some point.

Clay 2015-12-28 10:00 PM

Optimus Prime prop truck from the first three movies is up for auction.

Skyquake87 2015-12-28 10:56 PM

i bid 5 Euros.

Brendocon 2.0 2016-01-08 10:29 AM

Some top class fun and games going on in TFW2005's news section right now.

A day after they reported that somebody's found a Combiner Wars Computron in TRU's computer, a picture has emerged of Brawl with a drill instead of a barrel, which is now being reported as speculative evidence of... Combiner Wars LioKaiser.

As opposed to, y'know, a mock-up of Nosecone like logic would dictate. Or just somebody twatting about.

But yeah, anyway, possible Computron boxset on the way.

Warcry 2016-01-08 04:42 PM

Isn't drill-Brawl part of that hideous CW Tripredacus-with-five-members that the club is doing for BotCon, anyway?

I could totally see them doing a quick cash-in Technobot box set after all the outrage that one wasn't getting made, though.

Death's Head 2016-01-08 05:34 PM

Brendocon 2.0 2016-01-08 06:08 PM

Well well well.

Though it turning out to be true doesn't make the initial leap any less crazy.

Does make sense though. Easy vehicle recyc, straight Nosecone repaint if they're doing Computron, plus answers the nagging question of how they get a mould reuse out of Sky Lynx.
