Why are they not releasing Slugslinger along with the other three? I mean REALLY.

2 retools of the same base in the same case? Not after putting bee and chase in the same case.

But is there anybody else in wave 6? In any class?

He's gonna get dropped before release. I just know it. :-(

He'll probably show up at TJMaxx with terrible QC at $10. If wave 6 gets a full release like on CW, expect 2 more deluxes to accompany him.

'The other three' being Windblade, Twintwist and Misfire? Simply, I think it's because that wave was already deemed to have enough new Deluxe figures (bear in mind that Wave 4 has 5 new figs, so 3 new in Wave 5 balances it out back to an average of 4-per-wave); plus they still have another subsequent wave planned in which Slugslinger will be placed, presumably along with some other as-yet-unrevealed Deluxes. Even if they did include him in Wave 5 we still wouldn't be getting all three Targetmaster jets at once, so I'm not too bothered about waiting one more wave to complete the trio - especially since we at least know that they're all happening, looking at you cassettes [-( .

Not so far, but that's absolutely no indication that he's going to get dropped. It just means that they haven't yet revealed the other figures in his wave 6 months ahead of release (if we go by the "intended" release schedule). No way they'd drop him now, they clearly know we want it and it's so far along in the design process (especially considering it has new tooling, and isn't just a repaint or new head) that I can't imagine it'd be more cost-effective for them to drop him, barring some unforeseen totally awful problem with his particular use of the mold that would actually ruin the figure completely. (At which point, would you really want it released anyway if that was the case?)

Yeah, Wave 6 is gonna happen; we just don't know who's in it yet. That'll be a very nice surprise for us either at SDCC or maybe even in stores.

... more than likely Slugslinger or another Deluxe shows up early and we glimpse some of the wave through the cross-sells.

The best surprise would be an individual release for Nautica. I really need to complete my lost light crew.

I'm looking forward to Windblade but am concerned about her potential backpack. I'm also strongly considering Twin Twist as I had his G1 toy as a kid.

After a close examination of Hot Rod I can easily see a retool into Pointblank. New hood, new arms, new calf car panels, new rear car shell with engine and blue v-wing spoiler that hopefully detaches and pegs into forearm as a shield. I can also see a lazy redeco. Since I have no idea what is coming out in wave 6 other than Slugslinger I'm hoping for some pleasant surprises.

Unfortunately I doubt they'll have a mass-retail version of Nautica on the cards, at least not yet - the Velocitron set hasn't even come out in much of the world IIRC, so it seems unlikely that they'd intentionally compete with themselves by individually releasing what's probably one of the biggest draws for that box set.

Maaaybe we'll see an individual variation a few years down the line (though the nature of this gimmick suggests to me that we're unlikely to see many of these molds directly re-used - i.e. without modification to be less Headmastery - without good reason after the end of this line); but honestly I'd still say it's not worth banking on, since I'd imagine we'd be more likely to see that mold re-appear in some other con-exclusive or box-set that could theoretically happen in coming years. (Though one can always hope, of course! :D )

Seems extremely possible if they reused the mold. The Blurr mold is the most likely to get reused later since the area the head goes is easily modified by using a new shield accessory. I could even see them changing the sleeves to be more accurate and it would be assumed a non-Titan head would be used, allowing a better head and some translucent plastic since it is already used for the cockpit.

It's time to hit the stores for those of you in the market for Titans Return Legends Class Seaspray and Cosmos. These two were found at Target in Wichita, KS. Seaspray and Cosmos comprise wave 5 of Titans Return Legends Class with Seaspray being a brand new mold and Cosmos a redeco of the Thrilling 30 Generations mold.

She was revealed at Toy Fair, along with the others. She'll be the third main member of the Scourge/Highbrow family, sharing the same basic parts.
