Might not want to mention that first name to non fans lol.

Repungus also works pretty well on that body too if you haven't tried it yet.

ToysRus finally has Titans return Grotusque available for order. They have limited it to one per customer though, hopefully this means that everyone who wants one can get one and scalpers wont be making any cheddar off of this release.

Someone at TFW reported it early this morning. Just got my order in, with a prime master to qualify for free shipping. I can totally see this selling out real soon.

Heh not paying too much attention I guess. My inbox is blowing up because of the TFW notifications on this figure. I guess cuz of how it's tagged on Seibertron I wasn't getting the same notifications. Oh well, hope everyone that wants one can get it now. Kind of impulse bought it myself.

And no, I'm not counting the Titan Master. I want a full-sized Deluxe Repugnus!

So I recently picked up Shuffler and his Titan Master head does not fit well onto a body. When I push it does not go in easy like the others and never feels snug no matter how hard I press it in. (Any harder and I'd risk snapping it.) It's a real shame because Shuffler is a cool Titan Master head.

Anyone else have this issue?

Did you check the back of his head? Sounds like there's an issue with the notches in the back, or there's some sprue flash there.

My Dreadnaut's arm left arm is really loose when in any vertical position, but tight horizontally. Very peculiar.

I looked and after careful consideration I realized 2 things:

1 - You gotta line it up real square to get it to fit right. Take your time with it and there is no need to press hard.

2 - Unlike Furos, the Titan Master's head needs to face backwards while the actual robot head goes forwards.

The arm troubles could just be due to gravity. I have some wrestling figures like that. If I raise their arm to hold a title belt the ball joint gets maxed out and the arm lowers by itself. Never had an issue with holding his arms out sideways or forwards.

That's the standard way of doing it, really, so the clamps can grab the notches in the back of the head. Reversing the head is more of a improvised fix to make the fit better.

Doing some TF hunting while on a business trip. For anyone in Malaysia, I just saw at least 5 Chaos on Velocitron boxed sets at a TRU in Kuala Lumpur. Beware of sticker shock though, they are priced $699 ringgit (sp?) which is about $175 USD. Yikes!

The boxed sets are just hitting Asia, I think.

Anyway, no pics at the moment but Scrounge from the Computron boxed set was a retool of Generations Cosmos. Cosmos from Generations won’t fit on Computron’s arm.

But Titans Return Cosmos has Scrounge’s retooling rather than Generations Cosmos’. So he can combine with Computron or sit on a 5mm port.

And TR Cosmos is $3 at most nearby Target’s right now.

Motto: "If I have the power to make a difference, I should put it to good use."
Weapon: Twin Swords
I'm not thrilled with having to pay up a little for TR Windblade, but since every source I found her available sold her at the same price I decided to go ahead and splurge. It helped that I was able to work some magic with Amazon.com AND I was able to order PotP Grimlock and Slug at regular price (not the presumed markup originally announced for the next line).

I'll make comments about the dinobots in the appropriate thread and let you know what I think about Windblade here when I get her next week. I have to admit I am looking forward to how she will look with the Reprolable stickers as much as I hate applying stickers (I managed to do a good job with TR Megatron and boy to do those stickers make a difference though the wing stickers cover up beautiful mold detail and I don't find them necessary). I wish I could have also ordered Swoop but at that time his price skyrocketed due to low supply. I expect the price to normalize once he is restocked.

I'm still hoping HTS will restock before my order ships so I can tweak that in conjunction with my HTS coupon and their free shipping minimum.

For now it looks like Windblade will be my last TR figure as Twin Twist is too expensive. If he cost the same as Windblade I probably would have eaten the markup with him as well on the same order. I am debating completing TR with Grotusque from TRU or possible Arcee since I have Hot Rod and Chromedome and wouldn't mind evening out my :BOT:'s with two females to two males. I also want one more :BOT: to even out my deluxe/voyager total numbers with my :CON:'s (Galvatron, Megatron, Scourge and Triggerhappy). Unfortunately I only have one :CON: Titan Master (Fangry) vs. 3 :BOT:'s (Sawback, Shuffler and Ramhorn). I had terrible luck with the two :CON: Titan Masters I picked up and had to return them.

From here on out I'll just continue to be patient and hope for the right sale on the right figure to sort of even things out, though having two voyager :CON:'s and no :BOT:'s that large does make things interesting. Still, I am sort of regretting not grabbing Arcee when she was on sale, but I'm more attached to Grotusque as I had his G1 toy and I really like Thrilling 30 Arcee. However I do like TR Arcee's pistols.

I thought my legends class figures would only skew :BOT: (Bumblebee and Brawn) but with Kickback released and in my collection and the other Insecticons getting re-released as part of PotP they may even out when I get Slash or outnumber my :BOT:'s if I am still able to get Chop Shop on HTS when they are restocked with the other figures I want.

Time and money will tell as it always does when collecting on a budget.

Where have you heard that all the Insecticons will be reissued under Power of the Primes? So far as we know, Shrapnel is it. Kickback was just released last year and was plentiful in stores for several months. Bombshell might get a re-release, but I don't recall him being too hard to find during Combiner Wars either. If we get any more releases in the Legends size class in PotP, I would imagine it would be another figure that was realtively scarce during Thrilling 30, like Gears.

I don't remember the article I read way back when Skrapnel was announced. I'm pretty sure Bombshell was mentioned as being re-released there as well but my memory could be wrong. I hope it's not. I suppose I'll need to keep an eye out for a good deal on Bombshell in case my memory is wrong about that announcement. However, I think I'm remembering this because Hasbro was committing to all the Insecticons with warning so those of us who missed out or didn't bother because we only wanted all or nothing would start with Kickback and get the others in the next line.

Early on during Titans Return when Kickback was announced I believe, rumors of Insecticon re-releases and Deluxe Insecticon retools (thanks to CW Chop Shop) started showing up. Naturally, none came to pass, but a big but should be mentioned: it's quite possible the Deluxe Insecticons Barrage and Ransack are alternate toolings for Bombshell and Kickback respectively. That said, none have been officially announced or hinted towards: we know up to Wave 3 of PotP, and no Insecticon in sight.
