While Instagram might be a place filled with pictures of meals and duckface selfies, it will now finally have some awesome stuff in terms of official Transformers Images from Hasbro. Fellow Seibertronian AZT found this interesting announcement on the official Transformers Facebook page:

It’s high time the Transformers team gets on Instagram. So Bumblebee is packing up the crew and snapping pics in New York to kick it off. @TransformersOfficial goes live this week with a big announcement and an up-close look at a certain Titan scale figure.


Transformers News: Hasbro will be Revealing Toy Images of Transformers Titans Return Fortress Maximus on Instagram


So keep a lookout for when the official Transformers Instagram account goes live since it seems this is how they will reveal toy images of Titan Fortress Maximus, who is without a doubt the "titan scale figure" they are referring to.

Does not look like Takaras bumblebee. Too bright and cartoony yellow. I like it.

I live in the UK which doesn't always even get many of the figures, particularly late wave ones and I picked up Gen Brainstorm at Cambridge branch of Toys R Us a few months back and it was half price too. For me, any figure that appears in that Toys R Us in the past year that isn't RID or CW is surprising as all heck. The headmaster worked absolutely fine (the number on the back of the box confirms it was the later fixed version). I'd actually much prefer more of the original Headmasters in Voyager than shrinking them all to Deluxe. It's whats putting me off Hardhead. I'd much rather have him in Voyager so he can fit in my Voyager group of Autobots that include Springer, Sandstorm, Grimlock and others. Hardhead is probably gonna end up the size of my AoE Deluxe Bee and he really shouldn't. I like my Deluxes to be characters that are meant to be smaller than the norm (with Leader class for the ones the other way)

As far as the, 'if you don't like headmasters, don't remove the head' thing, to me the problem comes in when they make significant concessions in a toy's design to include some gimmick. The fact that Galvatron is a headmaster doesn't bother me, but I will be bothered if he has a springloaded crown/helmet that looks bad from any angle except straight on, and that eliminates any functional articulation at the neck.

That's basically my issue, I don't think they're spring-loaded, they were shown off in video's. While most, if not all of them will have y-axis rotation (left and right), none of them appear to actually have x-axis rotation (up and down) which is truly unfortunate, especially when they could have incorporated it into the headmasters :(

I'm also a Brit, but unfortunately I do not even have a Toys R Us that is even viable to get to. :( all my recent generations purchases have either had to be from Ebay or B&M Bargains I was able to get Roadbuster and Rhinox.

I think Galvatron does have at least a head swivel.

Nope. I live just north of Blackpool. :( Nearest Toys R Us is Preston, and I have never seen either of those other stores.

I'm in Texas and my nearest Toys-R-Us is about 30 minutes away. I've not been to it yet but it seems to be very small.

I wish the one in Preston was only 30 minutes away. Even if I had a car, it would be an hour away from me. On the buses, closer to 3.

Great characters like galvatron, sentinel prime and astrotrain shouldn't be headmasters in the first place.
Sentinel Prime and Astrotrain are "great characters"? Since when? :P


Sentinel prime was bad ass in megatron origins I loved his power suit like iron man. He valiantly stood against but was ultimately viciously killed by megatron. He was a good predecessor in his nature to optimus and came off really well.

I always liked astrotrain in g1 and idw have given him a nice new lease of life as the grumpy sarcastic transport. I just don't think these characters deserve to be stained by being headmasters.


So they have a removable head, how is that 'being stained' for every person out there against headmasters is another who maybe grew up with them, and has been hoping for these figures, and gimmick to make a comeback >:oP


As I said above if you read my comments, the characters mentioned never have been headmasters. Galvatron idw states his hatred for headmasters.

It stains the characters by having a crap gimmick that they never had previously. They're their own character not some body being piloted.

I've no problem with the likes of brainstorm and chromedome and the likes who've always been headmasters to make a return but to make characters like galvatron, sentinel, astrotrain, scourge and blurr into headmasters is hugely disappointing.


So, rid, armada, energon, and cybertron are all garbage because they designed the figures around a central gimmick... I mean, they took G1 Grimlock and made him a raptor in BW, is he forever stained now :roll:


That's an incorrect analogy. Those are different eras and different characters that used gimmicks. These figures are based off idw/g1.

Grimlock still remained a beast to robot. The gathering is a tie in to sell toys and extend the story of beast wars but the essential thing is grimlock remained a carnivorous dinosaur to robot. Not a headmaster. That's actually a massive change.

Heh, indeed, Hooray for the Internet. :) And Thanks for the welcome, I have been a lurker and reader of the boards for years, but it's only recently I have actually started to post at all. It's just a shame that internet prices get inflated. My best friend has been working on getting a full Menasor, now only needing Dead End.. but the cheapest one available is £23.. the RRP of a Voyager figure in the UK!
