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 a exclusive solus prime eh? I have to wonder what thought goes into deciding which prime master is put into these sets :-?

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.

It fits if in his character bio he upset the cons so switched sides to stay alive

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.

Kind of feels like Wreckgar got left out of having a little guy packaged with him.

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: )

I don't know...we got really good springer and sandstorm figures just a few years ago...wait...it was four years ago :shock:

They were GREAT figures. I'm still VERY fond of Sandstorm. But they don't match... And that keeps me up at night.

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.
