Apeface...I should be angry about how they turned Apeface into a glorified accessory...but I'm not. He looks legitimately cool. Well done Hasbro. Well done.

Skytread is using the quad-tank mold so I naturally love him, and the colours look great. That said I would have preferred an Armada Demolisher homage out of that mold (complete with Demolisher nogginmaster) but Flywheels is cool too.

Clobber looks cool. That said, I'd only buy him if I had Crashbash too so I could swap the purple parts onto the yellow body and have a Cindersaur. I have seen a picture of it done on 4chan but alas I didn't save it like the ninny I am.

Brawn has a nice facesculpt (albeit one ruined by the blocky rear of his head). That's it. The Headmaster mode doesn't really work because of the afforementioned blockiness, and the vehicle thing...what the hell? The tracked jeep mode is cool but the alternate mode is...well, let's say William James is gonna need to revise his incomprehensible alt modes list. What is that? A train? A snowmobile? A boat?

One complaint I have with all of these is the unpainted faces on the Headmaster robot modes. Yes yes, budget blah blah blah, but it still seems kinda cheap and lazy. We got painted faces on bloody Mini-Cons from Armada, and their faces were miniscule (and occasionally inhuman). Come on, Hasbro.

Might be because the friction from slotting the Titan Master in would scrape the paint off. Then again, it didn't stop them from painting Twincast and Infinitus's heads.

Well, those Brawn -with- Brawn faceswaps are nightmarish.

Still need to decide on Horri-Bull or Flywheels. I like the colors on one but the Headmaster face on the other...

It's a gun.

I love how they gave the titan master Brawn's old toy face. It's clever.

Not every Armada Mini-Con had their face painted.

And you're also talking about a line whose figures were predominately barely-articulated bricks with much more simplistic engineering overall.

That was years ago when paint was not an issue and when most molds were really simply and lacked articulation.



It only started to get really good with the Cybertron toys (Hardtop will always be my fave action figure ever)

Fair enough, though the Mini-con range was quite diverse in terms of engineering and molding. Save for the molded detail, every Headmaster in the TR line is engineered exactly the same.

And you're also talking about a line whose figures were predominately barely-articulated bricks with much more simplistic engineering overall.

I said Armada, not RID 2015. :lol:

In seriousness though, whilst I do agree that on the whole the engineering of Armada was a step backwards, aesthetically a lot of them were pretty good- very little hollowness, thick plastic, nice character designs and lots of paint. Armada was hardly the high point of toy design but it wasn't the absolute nadir either. I'd argue that the Generations FoC line wins the "crappiest line overall" award with its reduced parts count and appallingly bad plastic, whilst RID 2015 takes a comfortable second place- hollow parts everywhere, very little paint, and the bricks of the line- one steps and the like- aren't even particularly successful as bricks go. They aren't particularly sturdy and they look like arse. Whilst Armada largely consisted of bricks, they were nearly all very tough and with a few exceptions they were at the very least nice LOOKING bricks, with impressive sculpts and fairly lavish paint schemes.

Maybe I'm just overly nostalgic towards it due to childhood-toyline syndrome though.

It's not a gun, the gun mode is shown in Hardhead's hand (with the back portion folded in). All of these things have land, air, and weapon modes so the long thing would be an air mode like a speeder bike or something.

Yeah, a speeder bike of some type. Something between Rey's Speeder from Force Awakens and The Dark Knights Bat Pod without wheels. In green.

If you look closely you can just make out landing skids on the bottom of the front part.

Gotta say--Sentinel Prime's body + Skytread in head mode = A pretty good Autobot version of Astrotrain.

It may still be Sunday, but we're getting a head start on the working week here at Seibertron.com, with our new addition to the numerous toy galleries on our site! Coinciding with the release of IDW Publishing's The Transformers #56 (out this Wednesday), we present you the voyager class Titans Return triple changing figure for Alpha Trion, along with its (space)ship mode, lion mode, robot mode and Titan Master Sovereign. As an added bonus, and for the purpose of comparisons, site owner Seibertron is also having some fun with older versions of the character - click on any of the images below to find out more in the galleries!

He looks pretty good. The robot mode kicks arse and the battleship mode is cool too- makes me think of a combination of Space Battleship Yamato and the SDF-1 Macross. The lion mode is a bit iffy though.

Great gallery as always!

I feel like this Alpha Trion doesn't have as good as a beard game as he should though. He kind of was like the epic beard of the Autobots at least. Oh well.

Titanium Saint which came out in 2014 is the best Alpha Trion plus his alt mode is pretty much the same as the voyager Alpha Trion...hmmm :-? :-? :-?

It still amazes me just how much red this figure uses when compared to the two BotCon figures. Looking at the cartoon (and that cartoon-based non-transformable figure), Alpha Trion originally had about an even amount of red and white/light gray, whilst having slightly more purple by comparison. Of the three transforming toys, I feel like the BotCon 2007 figure got the color distributions of the red, the purple, and the white/light gray the closest to being just about right. Though, that toy ended up representing the evil Alpha Trion in the long run, so make of that what you will.

Also, tis unfortunate to see no comparison pics between Sovereign and Beta Maxx (BotCon '07 A3's Mini-Con), what with Sovereign's robot mode being molded in homage to the Cybertron Safeguard mold.

Discovered the missing images while working on Astrotrain's gallery this morning. Those images were accidentally put in his folder instead of Alpha Trion's. Images have been moved to the correct folder and comparison pics are now up!

Thanks for pointing this out, Sabrblade!

After the latest addition to the Seibertron.com toy galleries (which you can find again over here) we have another Voyager triple changer from the Transformers Titans Return toyline ready for you to start the week in style: Astrotrain, with his Titan Master Darkmoon! Using the same mold as Sentinel Prime, Astrotrain has his space train, space ship, and space robot modes but with the traditional grey and purple deco, with dabs of red and yellow. Check out the images below, click on any to view the full galleries, and see what you think of this new version of a simple triple changer from 1985 - by letting us know in the Energon Pub!
