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...

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

Trypticon won the poll, apparently.

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

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.
