Though the recent Toys-R-Us exclusive Titans Return Chaos on Velocitron boxset has been out for a couple of days now, new things about the set still end up coming through. Initial CGI renders of the boxset did not include every mode of the included figures; including Laser Prime's jet mode - well, if that's was what had you on the fence, fear no more for we finally have an image of the flight mode, courtesy of fellow board member Diem. Check it out below and tell us what you think in the comments!

Great Googaly moogaly, That mode looks unfinished, I am surprised they bothered with the jet mode's front windows

Well, that looks completely hokey.

Luckily, I have no intention of ever putting him in jet mode, so I can just ignore...whatever that is.

I'm definitely in the minority, but I think it looks good. The primarily black truck kibble blends in pretty nicely, and the grey wings and cockpit give a nice contrast, giving it a bit of a simple look. The truck is all show, but the jet is a no-frills transportation mode [strike]excluding the giant "OPTIMUS PRIME" sticker[/strike

I mean I really enjoy the concept of Optimus Prime flying around as a jet with the words OPTIMUS PRIME written on the sides in huge letters. It kind of makes me think of those jumbo jets that had Pokemon painted all over them. But even easily amused as I am, it looks simultaneously gaudy and basic.

Speaking of jets I'm digging Quickswitch's jet mode. For some reason it really pops in those colours.

Any reason for the tip being painted blue? Also, any guesses at to why Quickswitch is the slowest mode on the box of the SPEED set?

Well G1 Quickswitch did have some globs of light blue scattered around, like on his chest, the roof of his hydrofoil mode, behind his jet nosecone, and his landing gear/targeting sight. I don't feel like any of those parts correspond to the tip of his jet mode nose but I guess they wanted to break up the white and wanted to use an accent colour he'd had before. Trying to fit a size Quickswitch foot into a size Sixshot shoe can be tough!

And as for the boxart, his buddies that transform into a truck and a dragster are choosing to go on foot so he's hardly the biggest offender in the "look good first, go fast second" department. Besides, if Transformers Cybertron is to be believed an APC can outrun a racecar if they try hard enough.

The blue is probably a cockpit or window.

Officially the Titan Master sits inside the rear of the jet mode (between and below the two red tailfins) but it could be some kind of secondary, frontal, upwards-pointing viewport or something I guess.

Unrelatedly, the plot of this boxset is pretty bonkers.
Rodimus Prime (in an unspecified body, with an unspecified relation to TR Hot Rod) wins a race and gains the power to control the speed of things but is forced to become a tiny head robot to wield that power. Decepticons show up, Fast"clash" and Quickswitch confuse them, Nautica (whose official function is Quantum Mechanic, which might be the best thing I've ever seen) allows the gang to escape using "faster-than-light" engines (did Rodimus really need to become a munchkin if she could already casually flout Relativity?) and then Optimus makes use of what are presumably faster-than-faster-than-light portals to escape the planet entirely.

It only this second occurred to me that Siege On Cybertron includes both Metalhawk and (sort of) Ginrai. I'm excited to see how nuts that Masterforce reunion gets.

Going off of that and looking at the bios and roles on the team. Laser Prime is "team leader" so i would hazard that "Magnus Prime" will be that team leader, with 2 more to come I would think. Also will be fun to see how they fit Thunderwing in there bio-wise :lol:

Yikes... that looks more like a oil trailer with wings than a jumbo jet. The fact that that particular part of the truck mode is so instantly recognizable doesn't help at all.

And believe it or not, that blue paint app in Quickswitch's jet mode is based on the blue hinge that the "nose" is on on the G1 figure.

Of course the most important part of the entire set is that you can remove Fastclash's spoiler to reveal a 5mm peg and thus create the greatest Devcon/Beast Machines Mirage homage of all time.

Quick question, does the hole on the crotch accept the heel of Titan masters? It looks like it but I'm not sure.

Yeah, when he's in dragster mode you can flip up the centre of his chest to form a seat for TMs.

Where the normal version of voyager Prime is just a crummy unpainted stupid jet...

this is a terrible looking jet in cool black and gray with GIANT OPTIMUS PRIME written on the side of his jet.

*win*


Can't wait for this set. I'm probably selling Quickswitch but that jet mode looks nice.

Heh, yeah that Prime jet mode looks terrible. Fine in truck and robot mode.

No amount of paint can make this prime. Figure in jet mode look good

My set came with 2 heads for Quickswitch. 1 was lined up next to the other 3 TM'S in the plastic case and another was already inside QuickSwitches chest compartment in his helment while in car mode as well.

Did anyone else get 2 in their set?
