Over all on the Titans Return front, a little underwhelming.

Brawn as a Titan Master is unexpected. Guess there goes any hope for a redeco of Gears as Brawn. Clobber/Grimlock is a meh, too.

Kinda expected Weirdwolf and Highbrow to happen, so not exactly enthused about their reveal. Don't get me wrong, they look great! It's just I had a feeling they'd happen eventually.

If only Scrounge came by himself... *sigh*

Now for the one thing arhat legitimately got me excited:

OVERLORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Really, really disappointed in Apeface and Brawn only being titan masters :-( . Two of my most wanted Generations figures. Maybe I can use the Brawn head to make a custom at least, but dont think I am good enough to make an Apeface. But very excited at the possibility of OVERLORD! Sweet looking paint work on that TF:Movie platinum set. Bring on Chromedome(what to do with me TFCC one?), Galvatron, Skullcruncher, Wheelie and Astrotrain to my house and I will be happy for a while :-D

Like other's have mentioned. This year's reveals have been "MEH!" for the most part...

Pros-
Overlord was clearly the highlight of the day.
Wolfwire and Highbrow look okay.
That SDCC set looks cool.
I'll be grabbing a Deluxe Groove in May.
Astrotrain looks cool but I may try to hold out for Takara's

Cons-
Those Titan Master mini heads are a lame cop out!
Alpha Trion is a pass
Hasbro's Technobot set is a pass (Takara all the way)
Reflector should've been a retail release with better head sculpts and paint apps.
No mention of Legend class figures at all. (No Kickback, Gnaw, Brawn gears repaint)

Man, Hasbro has knocked it out of the ballpark with a lot of the Titan Masters. Wolfwire and Highbrow look great. During May Mayhem (if he's on Amazon), I'll be getting Groove for my CW Defensor. Astrotrain looks great, and Alpha Trion looks good (though I don't like his lion mode). Hopefully those two silhouettes of the tank and jet could mean we're getting Overlord. As for Liokaiser, it's awesome that we're getting a CW figure of him. Good job so far, Hasbro. ;)^

For the SDCC set, Brainstorm has been given a special IDW-based deco, Windblade has a Fort Max-based deco, and Sentinel Prime's translucence is meant be an "energized" resurrected deco.

A gamble for sure - Takara might pull an Encore on you and give you a black and white Astrotrain. ;)

Fun fact: it was a canceled retail release. Remember how the "Thrilling 30" series Legends class skipped a whole ton of numbers? Now we know one!
