Saw a few of these in the local smyths toy store. Liked the look of galvatron and blaster. Prime seems over stylised for my tastes but might pick up the purple rage monkey.

Lots of pictures of Titans Return Sixshot floating around from Cybertron Con. I've attached the slideshow images from 52 Toys to illustrate my absolute favourite bit.

They've turned the gun upside down and called it a submarine because guns bad and all that stuff... but his subgroup/function/descriptor/whatever is "revolver".

He's a revolver who doesn't turn into a gun. That's some top class trolling from Hasbro right there. Big points for that one.

Though the ****er would probably still be inexplicably alive again two issues later.

Deluxe Fangry.
Apparently not a deluxe, but one of the smaller classes. Whoops.

Sixshot's a little simple, but better than I expected he'd be.

They did. I think they called him "Crashbash". But he was in the first wave of heads and nobody seemed to realize that making the solo Headmasters' drones resemble their G1 toys would be a selling point until they designed whichever wave that Apeface is in. Which is a shame because the mini-Fangry and mini-Apeface toys are pretty cute, and if Squeezeplay, Horri-Bull, Nightbeat and Siren aren't going to get proper toys it would have been nice to at least get them done up the same way. But alas, Squeezeplay's got a dinosaur drone, Nightbeat has a drill tank, etc...

Yay for Legends Kickback!

Leader Sixshot looks good for a mainstream figure, but underwhelming compared to MMC Hexatron. Of course, that makes sense given the high-end nature of the latter, but nowadays (in UK at least) the price points aren't different enough anymore. Does a better job of G1 toy homage than MMC though.

Don't see the need for a new Generations Rodimus mould - still love the Classics version and to me the new one isn't significantly different.

Voyager Prime is interesting - I look forward to seeing the Octane version!

Titan Trypticon is looking promising based on those rather limited photos!

Really rather cool. I don't want it, but inventive.

AE have pre-orders up for TR Ginrai/PMOP so I'm taking a punt -- http://www.anime-export.com/ -- and it in no way is going to replace the original, but figure it'll go nicely with the Autobot TR lineup of characters like Brainstorm and Hardhead. Really liking TR in general so far.

MP34 Cheetor up for PO at various retailers.

55 pounds plus shipping at Kapow

38 odd quid at AE before shipping

January release, which makes it look like Inferno is going to be the last MP release this year [potential release date for Dirge excluded].

Takara's version of Victorion is, er... somewhat different to Hasbro's...

That's unexpected, and yet... not unexpected at the same time.

Where have I heard of Mega Empress before? I'm sure it was something from Takara, but I can't recall precisely.

Oddly I like him much more than the Inferno.
