May has come and gone and none of the exclusive figures we were hoping to get for May Mayhem were released and most are still not revealed. For those keeping tabs, the exclusives that have yet to be revealed officially are Repugnus, Counterpunch and shuttle Blastoff.

While we still have no images of Repugnus, we do have some new info courtesy of a new Amazon listing.

It states the following:

Special Edition Titans Return Repugnus and Titan Master Dastard
Features a Deluxe Class Repugnus figure with premium deco
Also comes with a special edition Prime Master figure, Solus Prime
Comes in special edition packaging; celebrate the Prime Wars Trilogy with this collectible set
Includes Deluxe Class Repugnus figure, Titan Master Dastard figure, special edition Solus Prime Prime Master figure, 2 accessories, and instructions.

The big take away from this is that Repugnus will be a headmaster and not a combiner. This means Hasbro will be completing the 3 monsterbots with them using the same gimick. It also seems he will be released in a similar packaging as Titans Return Arcee. The reason he is still part of Power of the Primes, at least somewhat, is because he does include the Prime Master Solus Prime. Like the Megatronus figure that will come with Blastoff, this is a special edition version of Solus Prime, so probably with clear plastic. Feel free to speculate as well.

Wonder which Beastformer this dastard will be based on this time (if the trend continues, that is). :-?

When taking colors and allegiance into account, possibly Goldar (no, not that one) aka Ferocious Tiger, or the Laser Beast Brown Lion. As an aside, Black Panther/Jaguar is a Destron ally, and Scope Cougar in Legends had Toraizer's body.

It's always possible (and likely) they'll just use the already available Repugnus Titan Master.

That's actually pretty unlikely, based on the way Hasbro does things. The Repugnus TM is molded along with his bug-suit, just as whatever body this new Repugnus is based on (my money is on Doublecross again) will be molded along with the TM for that figure. So to just use the pre-existing TM would mean, pretty much, throwing away one Titan Master and one Titan Master-accessory per Repugnus made. Much more economical to just make another new face for the Doublecross mold, and maybe switch out a part or two on that mold's partner TM to make it resemble a particular Battle Beast (or whatever what they should be called).

My money is also on Doublecross, more specifically the Grotusque mold, with a new bug head, and maybe retool the arms/hands a little bit. Can't wait, then Repgunus can join my ever growing "I'm gonna shoot you with myself" club. Old photo below, I was going to update it a few times, but Hasbro keeps putting out either new mini weapons of figures I have, or figures of mini weapons I have. Guess I'll wait for Repugnus then get the crew together for an update.

I was hoping this would come with one of the unaccounted for Prime Masters, it makes me even more worried that they won't happen at all. Regardless, Twinferno is still fairly common at brick-and-mortar stores in my area, so I've been toying with the idea of adding the Monsterbots to my collection for a while. I can just pick up a discounted Twinferno from my local toy shop, get Repugnus when he's out, then rob a couple of banks to get Grotusque actually the Ebay prices for Grotusque are surprisingly okay for an older exclusive, so it might just be doable.

So glad Repugnus is staying a TR figure to keep the trio the same. I would have still bought him as a combiner, but I wouldn't have been happy with the lost potential.

Dastard: dishonorable or despicable person.
Ya know this is an Autobot right? That definition doesn't fit an Autobot at all. That name would work better for Swindle's headmaster (if he had one).

With that said, I can't wait for this figure. I LOVE REPUGNUS! My favorite of the 3.

Not every Autobot is a model citizen. Blades, Whirl, Flame, even Repugnus himself are all downright despicable and/or dishonorable.

eh, pretty much the whole monsterbots trio are far from righteous. If anything, they are more lawless and more violent than the dinobots on the battlefield.

Repugnus takes the cake in that aspect. He's in fact been kicked out on multiple occasions, only to be asked back for jobs so dirty regular Autobots wouldn't go near them. Even better, the dirtier the job, the more Repugnus revels in it. So the name for the Titan Master definitely fits.

Thank god. It has a Titan Master. They did it effing right.

Now. Just do these with Titan Masters, and my level of respect will increase tenfold: Springer, Sandstorm and Cyclonus. Just... Please. Please make everything match!

(P.S. They could do those three and then, like, a G2-Shuttle Blast Off, and a few other missing pieces. If they put Special Edition Prime Masters with each, we could get Special versions of each to hang out with the Pretender Armors. That would BLOW MY EFFING MIND. :michaelbay: :michaelbay: :michaelbay: )

Just pretend that the reason that the other Triple Changers are all Headmasters while Springer and Sandstorm aren't is because Springer decapitated them all with his sword (but left Sandstorm's head alone). :P

Better idea: make Triple Changers that match Sprimger and Sandstorm. Octane and Blitwing are cool toys, but to be honest I am most enjoying Megatron and Scourge from those molds. Broadside only gets a Passable plane mode if you use the Fan Mode, abd that... thing... Astrotrain turns into is NOT a Train. Hasbro knows how to do it, the Classics toy is beautiful if not a tad too small, and the G1 toy transforms nicely between the two. But this?

That'd be fine too!

But we're reallllllly close to getting all the On-Screen characters from English-G1 in Prime Wars. You can probably count the missing characters on your fingers and toes. I'd like to see them finish it off in the Combiner/Titan Master-style.

AND THEN go back and do the others in a great CHUG toy to match Thrilling-Springer/Sandstorm.

I'm actually surprised we haven't gotten an Omega Supreme (energon nod) out of the mode yet.... if they could figure out the colors right, the shuttle mode could be yellow ala The Ark

Omega Supreme has been short-listed for Titan-class. If one is put out, it will likely be no taller than Devastator and Predaking. The WFC line coming out would be the perfect time to do it too. We should know more pretty soon.

And if Hasbro keeps to their trent of alternating, we should be due for a "Basebot" soon.

I WOULD actually ne down for an Omega Supreme, I could totally see that homage. Anf the Energon OS was also a Headmaster...

Not quite alternating, but close, more like sandwiching a combiner between 2 city bots.
Metroplex, Devastator, Fort Max, Trypticon, Predaking, To Be Determined. (Grand Max intentionally left out since he's just a redeco and Takara only.)

We do know that they had to have some preliminary designs for Omega Supreme and Scorponok based on them being in the fan poll that got us Trypticon, so I would say that one of those 2 is most likely next. Unicron would be the wildcard since he is coming up in the comics.

My gut tells me Omega Supreme would be next since the Decepticons already have a 3-2 advantage.

This^ in fact, I was a bit dissatisfied when they announced predaking as it broke the nice little pattern they were building up of alternating between factions. To point out though, it's not a slight against the predaking toys, just my unhappiness at a pattern being broken...even if it was in my head.

Also it's worth pointing out that TR Astrotrain was inspired by his storm bringer designs which were a cybertonian alt mode (he hadn't been to earth yet)

making america great again, stood for less govt control, bringing jobs back, and a fair healthcare system, etc. whats wrong with that? nothing.

Overly sensitive?

I found Inferno at Walmart this weekend! He's a pretty nice repaint, all told, but he won't replace my Henkei Inferno on my Classics shelf. No, he will be primarily the torso of the might "Firestormer!" His "official" team is still to be determined, but for now, I've got him configured with Alpha Bravo, Rook, Smokescreen, and Jazz. Looks pretty good to me.

Wheeljack and Ratchet belong to Sky Reign/Lynx Master and Groove is always going to be a part of Defensor. Alpha Bravo, Rook, Smokescreen, and Jazz were the only Autobots I have that aren't already being used by another combiner team. I know originally that the first three were associated with some Combiner Wars teams, but I'm using the Unite Warriors configurations, so Takara's use of Slingshot, Groove, and Ratchet freed up these "Hasbro exclusives" for use here.

I don't think colors matter so much on combiners anyway. With the exception of teams that have a unified color scheme, like the Constructicons, the Predacons, or the Torchbearers, most of them are pretty "Voltron" like in that regard, making each member a unique color primarily to help them stand out. To me, the sillhouette matters more, which is why I put the THICC boys down there as legs and configured the arms to have a similar shape and soulder profile to one another.

Finding suitable limbs for Inferno will be hard... I'm actually looking at Rescue-themed teams for inspiration. US Nosecone maybe?
Re: Generations Repugnus to Come with Titan Master Dastard and Solus Prime (1962922)
Posted by Wolfman Jake on June 4th, 2018 @ 1:09am CDT
I'd like to be able to do that for Firestormer too. In fact, I'm kind of counting Alpha Bravo as a "rescue helicopter," a la movieverse Evac with his orange, blue, and white "Coast Guard" color scheme, which matches Alpha Bravo's color scheme quite well, actually. If Blades can get away with having missile pods and still be considered a rescue vehicle, so can Alpha Bravo!

With Rook being a police SWAT vehicle, that's two down. I could swap Smokescreen onto Sky Reign/Lynx Master and free up Ratchet for a third. That just leaves one more. Maybe if we ever get Hoist from CW/UW Trailbreaker, that could complete the team. I'd consider a tow truck a rescue vehicle, even if it only rescues other vehicles.

(Also double as unnamed Rescue Force 1 and 2)
CW Mirage (RF3,flip rear spoiler up and use HFG in hole for the mounted launcher)
Rook- doubles as RF4)
Alpha Bravo-Flyup

Streetwise
First Aid
Blades

Even if you use the small Legends Groove, you still have 2 full sets of Limbs for Hot Spot and Inferno

HA! What a bunch of great ideas above. The ratchet limbs = excellent.

And man... I feel like Hasbro really should have better jumped onto the bandwagon with the extra team members in addition to the original 5.

The Kabaya set mentioned above with the drill and VTOL plan additions to Defensor is such a cool concept. I love mixing and matching, and having some INTENDED official extra members really jump starts the imagination.

Again, that's one huge reason I miss the club and botcon. They really worked to fill in the cracks with stories, comics, prose, bios. I feel like we are missing out on a lot of history, stories, lore, background for the past few years... not to mention some artwork/battle scenes. I

Those aren't bad repurposings, but not perfect. US Strafe isn't a VTOL jet and US Nosecone doesn't have dual drill bits. I'd rather turn the uniquely tooled Hasbro Technobots into new characters in their own right, a la Combiners Wars Alpha Bravo and Rook. I'm counting Combiners Wars "Jet" Blast Off as a new character named "Take Off."

I'm going with all new characters myself to round out some teams. No matter what, I'll be left with some extra torsos and limbs that will just end up being individual figures or sit in a bin unused.

I have both Computrons and the G2 Superion Menasor and Bruticus sets. My Comutron is mostly Takara with Hasbro Afterburner (I like the orange) and the Hasbro feet and hands.

My plan is to use the remaining computron and G2 bits to round out the rest of the combiners.

I already have Megascream mostly figured out. Both jet Blast Offs will go with Blackwing and Dreadwind. I'll use Takeoff and Crash Landing as their names.

Still figuring out how I want to handle Elita 1 and Inferno, but I'm waiting to get Inferno, Wreck Gar Novastar and Counterpunch in hand so I can see what looks best color-wise.

Then I'll see who is left and mix and match to create a few more. I'm pretty sure I'll pair up G2 Onslaught with the most obnoxious colored decepticons left (G2 Swindle and Breakdown for sure) and call him Eyesore.

No, I agree, I was more lookong for names I could put to figures, but the Nosecone toy especially doesnt match either re-use. I am kinda the opposite though, in that I would rather tie them to established names than make it up off the cuff.

Well.. Its less about rescue and more about color coordination. There is a serious lack of random limbs, started in combined wars and followed through potp.
Also, Inferno's box shows him combined with slag, so..

I think it has to do with the fact that 5 year old boys love dinos and fire trucks.

Is it just me or do the paint apps look much more crisp?

I think it's just the lighting or the camera's focus. My Wave 1 Jazz's paint apps are extremely crisp, as much so as the "new" one on the right in that photo. :D

I gotta hand it to the person who took notice of MAGA in Jazz. At that size of the font, he/she actually took the time to decode it? With a Loope? Sure decoding Alana in Seaspray was amazing, and it was molded in but MAGA?

Do you guys use a loupe to check all your figure's details?

Come to think of it, has there been a spike in demand for Jazz ver.1 with MAGA?

I wonder why there's no update yet on the JP version of Jazz? Did the JP version also sport this running change?

What's the feedback from our JP members? No feedback yet?
