Fellow Seibertronians, following an awesome weekend full of action pack Botcon adventure, we are pleased to bring to you some new galleries as well as some updated ones. For our Titans Return discussion, we bring to you 2 updates. You will remember that previously we had a gallery showing off all the new Titans Return stuff as well as a gallery showing off the SDCC Sentinel Prime, Windblade and Brainstorm. Well, we are pleased to tell you those galleries have been updated and the new gallery can be found Here. Among the updates to this gallery are some shots of the SDCC guys in vehicle mode as well as in the box.

Also clocking in on this Mid-week gallery update is our latest gallery: that of the Fortress Maximus Battle Diorama! This new gallery shows off that beautiful display that was the centerpiece of the Transformers show floor and showed off some Awesome and occasionally adorable Figures. Some of the images have been mirrored below for your enjoyment, but feel free to visit both galleries and let us know what you think of these galleries in the comments section below. And as always stay tuned to Seibertron.com for all your latest Transformers News and Galleries!

Man, that backpack on Mindwipe is gnarly, it's like it's not even trying to collapse to the back 8-}

Ran into two of the :HASBRO: guys at the airport on my way home. I chatted them up for a minute, and they told me that when they pulled Astrotrain out, his wing had snapped off. So they had Fort Max pull the wings off that fly. :lol:

Gotta say, those guys have a great job.

Was Windblade remolded or just redecoed?

Also, who is that green repaint of Groove?

Redeco of the RID Warrior class Windblade mold.

Rust Dust, Victorion's Legends class component.

That is a repaint of the RiD Windblade. and the green Groove is Rust Dust, the chest piece to Victorion :MAXIMAL:

Okay, now I'm curious. Is that supposed to be sentinels own fraction symbol on the sdcc exclusive or is there more we haven't been told.

That's the symbol for the Autobot Security Services operating under Sentinel Prime. It's origin? Why, the IDW comics of course, Megatron Origins to be exact. It is missing the central chevron however:

Thanks jelZe :-) it's been a while since I've read megatron origins. I just assumed he had the autobot symbol like everyone else.

Who's the orange car beside Mindwipe?

Is that a Voyager size Windblade?

The Orange car is wheelie and wind blade is just a deluxe, she's redeco'ed from her new RiD mold

Didn't take long for them to use the new Windblade mold lol. I'm still confused just what on earth her colours are supposed to be, especially when Brainstorm and Sentinel are so accurate to their original colours (well, Sentinel is translucent but)
I'd be tempted to get that set just because of Sentinel's faction symbol but since he seems translucent I think I won't. Reprolabels'll always come around anyway :p
It's funny he has his own faction symbol now. I was just thinking the other week about how Sentinel Prime, at least this one, is being marketed as a heroic autobot leader to kids and they'll be getting him thinking "woah, an Optimus Prime that's orange and turns into a spaceship!" sort of deal. When we know the horrible, horrible things he's done. Oh IDW~

At the Hasbro panel, they said the deco for Windblade in the SDCC set is meant to be Fort Max colors.

Well that's a relief! I was getting nervous when it was pointed out earlier, but I thought I had seen the fintenna up on the Hasbro version.
Thanks for the eagle eye, Emerje! Good lookin' out. ;)^


A great touch - shame it can't save hasbro's 'deco' >:oP

That's a key point. Through minor use of paint apps, Takara manages to make their figures not look like cheap crap. The exact opposite of Hasbro's apparent strategy.

Well, that's... interesting. I wonder why on earth they're doing that

She was initially linked with Metroplex, right? In this take on the character she could be linked with Fort Max instead and thus would have different colours showing her new "colours".

True, but as of right now IDW Fort Max isn't a Titan, just a bigger than average guy.

Since all the Platinum sets are supposed to be recreating prominent scenes - or in the case of Autobot Heroes, bundling together characters that were in a team together - I am starting to think this is a hint at an upcoming IDW Titans Return crossover. And so far this has all the makings of 'what the fuck', what with Sentinel back, Windblade linking up with Fort Max and then joining with Brainstorm from the Lost Light. I don't know how to feel about it. Just as long as Hasbro doesn't mess IDW's story up as bad as Combiner Wars...

Except that this isn't a Platinum set, it's the SDCC exclusive set.
