We've been teased about it, we've seen it in the San Diego Comic Con 2016 Titan Force set, we've seen him as the Walgreens exclusive at SDCC in the Hasbro area (right here!), and now fellow Seibertronian Neurie offers us a very quick comparison between the standalone Titans Return deluxe Brainstorm, his Titan Force counterpart, and the Voyager from the Generations line, with Headmaster Arcana! Check out the images mirrored below, including the Titan Master Teslor - note: the Walgreens one is the more saturated one on the right.

UPDATED with more images, showing Titan Master looks, comparisons with Takara Legends Headmasters, and closer looks at details and features!

Its a fun toy, I prefer the main colour of the Wallgreens version, neither it nor the SDCC version are as good as the Voyager thought.

The Wallgreens has nice blue eyes and a vibrant orange face plate with better tampos.

I really hope they don't do it and, well, obviously they shouldn't because base modes aside even a blind dude could tell you they're nothing alike; but maybe that cynical side of me is really trying to scare me...


I highly doubt it. You can't make a scorpion out of a dinosaur, not even with the most extensive retooling. And Scorponok wouldn't be Scorponok without a scorpion mode.

I don't know, I could see it. On one hand, Scorponoc's robot mode would have the same limb placements as Tryp's, the only differences a being Scorp has longer arms and no tail in robot mode. And how involved was/is the transformation of the original Scorponoc? Doesn't he kinda just do the whole "hey look I'm a scorpion!" And then when you transform him he's just. Scorpion on two legs?


Maybe you can finagle a scorpion mode out of the dino mode, but what do you do about the bot mode? Trypticon's torso isn't the right shape for anything humanoid, his hips are too far apart and he doesn't have a proper pelvis. Scorponok's legs would have a mile wide gap between them on a squat body. There just isn't any way around making this work.

I guess the Walgreens version looks better?

I don't know.

MtMtE has such washed out colors most of the time that I got used to the lighter color scheme.

I wish neither one was as extreme in color as they are.

I got the SDCC one over the weekend with the Walgreens on me on the way. I really like the SDCC one. It's very MTMTE and so it fits with what I wanted but I'm excited to get the retail release too to see them compared.

I must admit, I quite like the retail release over the SDCC version....

When is the Walgreens one released?

I still just see Blurr vosplaying as Brainstorm. Generations version for the win.

Did you count Fortress Maximus as two?

I'm sure others have said it but the Walgreens release is striking me as having a very toy inspired deco. I do prefer the SDCC lighter colors. Luckily I already have the voyager and don't need to have all the Headmasters in the same scale.

I know I probably should have expected this, but the Titans Return Brainstorm makes the Generations one look like a powered-up version!

DUDE. Size DOES matter!

Oh well I guess there'll be those who will be happy with baby-sized ones....

I don't really count Arcee as she's fiction-only and a toy of her was never made in G1. As for a possible TR release, expect a redeco of Chromedome like the original G1 proposal:

I really don't see them retooling Gen. Arcee.

The Walgreens one has unpainted altmode guns, whereas the SDCC one has them painted gray/silver.

Really? I mean, the Voyager definitely looks better... But I found the Voyager Brainstorm to be an incredibly boring figure to play with. Whereas I am enjoying the hell out of Titans Return Blurr.

I definitely like the vibrant colours of the algreens version more. Where can I get one in the UK? I prefer the deluxe figure far more than the voyager too. I had the Voyager but there were so many things I didn't like about the design and overall shape of parts (the pointy feet bugged me for example) and they're all much better on the more G1-ish Deluxe here.

I'd keep an eye on stores like ASDA and Tesco, as such exclusives tend to become regular releases in Europe. However, don't look for just the name "Brainstorm": the UK import for the SDCC set required a name change for him, he was renamed "Charon". Don't ask.
