While Titans Return Sixshot is finally reaching saturation in the US, there is of course no sign of Sky Shadow. So while a big chunk of the fandom waits, I have put together some images we have not seen yet, of how Titans Return Sky Shadow works in base mode connected to other bases in an interconnected city. He actually has 3 connection points, offering different altitudes of connection and the legs offer various possible angles to connect to other bases, as you can see below. You will also find images of how he looks like with different faces on, just for fun.

Enjoy!

How are the stickers on him, by the way? Are they garbage like the TR Megatron stickers?

Yes they are. Thankfully there arent that many. Theres just the ones on the wings and the decepticon symbols and the later ones are perfecetly fine. This is easily the best leader of Titans return to date.

And I just love how well that tank rolls. Its a very elegant transformation for his bottom half. Top Half is overly simplified though, too bad.

How is it that a single column of a supermarket whose shelves are so bare it wouldn't be out of place in a zombie apocalypse movie is still making me envious compared to what we have in the UK?

Man, that sucks. I'm glad they're not in abundance like Megatron or the new Laser Prime, but it's still a shame. I wonder what prompted them to use such horrible quality stickers? Other than cost-cutting, of course.

I have realizes that shelves being stocked matters much less than what they are stocked with. The TRU next door to this walmart looked like this:

Now I dont know about you, but I think what Walmart had is way better than what TRU had.

I really think it is just that, cost cutting :( But hey, thats the way it was in G1 so I hope at least some fans are happy.

I'd say that the G1 stickers have held up better than these new ones have. Several of the wing stickers on my TR Megs have already peeled pretty badly, and I've only transformed him twice or so. And yet my uncle's Pointblank has stickers that have survived some serious playtesting from him, me, my brothers, and my cousins, not to mention attic storage inbetween.

Although, my Sixshot has held up nicely, despite a good amount of fiddling to get all fo his different modes. Perhaps it's just bad luck with Megatron.

I was just being cheeky with mentioning G1. Some of the stickers on my G1 figures are fine but others have peeled off badly. But they are all from different places and aquired in the pat 3 years so I wouldnt know what happened to them.

And yes, Megatron is easily the biggest offender to the sticker issue. I dont mind the rest as much.

@william-james888. There's no need to take a negative at people who prefers G1 transformers. G1 people don't like shitty stickers, for your information

Swerve and Tailgate fought Trypticon in this cartoon battle.

Note: This video is in Japanese only because there's no English version of this fight on YouTube anymore. Otherwise, this episode is definitely from the American G1 cartoon, being the Season 3 ep "Five Faces of Darkness, Part 5".



Ok I stand corrected - I think I'd never seen that episode - I think I didn't manage to wade through all of season 3 so I likely stopped before I got that far (I think I stopped before the ark got destroyed for example) .

But it's interesting to see Pipes, Outback, Swerve, Tailgate in there as I genuinely didn't know that any of them were ever in the western cartoon. I notice Bumblebee has a roof cannon - I am surprised Takara didn't pick up on that as a bonus MP accessory.

I recall Cosmos, Powerglide, & Seaspray being in there so I obviously got that far. I really must finish watch those DVD's one of these days

He just said he was joking he is not being negative at all.

Also I don't think you speak for everyone I'm pretty sure there are a few G1 "people" who like stickers.

The G1 stickers that are poorly cut or where the ink rubs off suck. or where they tell you to put them in places they get chewed up by the Transformation - or they just don't fit (like Hotrod) are bad.

But when they don't rub and they have a little cutout to sit into they work perfectly fine.

Oh and as to the durability - I bought a G1 Powerglide at a Carboot sale over the weekend - his stickers are in great condition and I dug him out of biscuit tin full of rusty Hotwheels, Matchbox & Dinky toys.

Oh and I like Soundwave's head on Sky Shadow - that looks nice.

Has anyone found a better fan base mode for Six Shot yet ? something flatter & more ramp friendly perhaps.

I am talking for all G1 people. G1 people don't like "shitty" stickers. No one does. I didn't say G1 people don't like stickers. :). Just saying. I'm not offended.

There are good stickers and there are bad scrappy stickers. Whether you are G1 or not, we all hate crappy stickers!

And the ones used on 3x Megs suck. Sixshot's? Well the foil type are kind of a pain to mount and crimp easily, heck, I'll live.

It was the fifth episode of season 3, so I'm guessing you stopped after Part 4 or so.

Swerve was also briefly seen in one scene of another season 3 episode, "Forever is a Long Time Coming", but sadly there's no clip of that scene available on YouTube that i can find. :(

Said episode was also Pipes's sole other cartoon appearance. Outback, however, got a few appearances in Part 1 of the aforementioned five-parter, and again in the episode "The Quintesson Journal".

I think what happened it I got as far as season 2 on DVD (not having seen hardly any of season 2 until it was on DVD as it was barely published on VHS) and never even unwrapped season three from it's shrink wrap. and the season 3 eps I have seen were all on VHS releases so I've seen things like Return of Optimus Prime or Call of the Primitives on VHS. So things in parts of the 1st 2 years like Nightbird & Kremzeek were new to me as I missed those episodes until it was on DVD. and boy was that bizarre seeing Kremzeek all that time late for the 1st time.

Anyway I'm pleased and surprised to find out (nearly all) the Minibots featured in the show after all.

Did they skip Hubcap ?
------

I wonder if Hasbro is aware how much we dislike there use of substandard sticker stock ?

Has anyone had a word in their ear about it at events ?

I actually don't mind the bonus sticker sheets - but those seem to be decent quality stickers so they are not an issue.

But Megatron for example really just needed some red paint on his wings - that was all. and a tampographed logo on his chest and on his jet nose.

Bought and sold this guy in 24 hours basically to take a "test drive" (and I'm trying to cut down how many TFs I buy --- I don't *need* Shadow, nor do I have a connection to him, and Overlord is coming), and man, he's a fantastic toy. Big, bulky, still posable, and just imposing and fun. Transformation may be relatively simple but it's also satisfying and it's rad just swapping modes.

It's funny, though, looking at these pics, my daughter put a pile of Titan Masters on Blaster's base mode last night for a dance party. I want Max just for base mode for the headmasters.

I do find it odd that the stickers are only on the Titans Return toys, and not the RiD ones no matter the size. Maybe it's their way of saying: you want G1, we'll give you G1, stickers and all! :lol:

Possibly - I think they saw the positive reaction to the give away CW stickers and jumped to the wrong conclusion. As there is not stickers in Wave 1 & 2 so why add them in 3 & 4 ?

RID toys are sometimes missing paint to a horrendous degree - especially some Bumblebees.
