We have some potentially big news for US fans who have been waiting for more Titans Return Wave 3. Fellow Seibertronian Mordhelm has told us that BBTS has sent this message to those who preordered the Wave 3 Leader Sixshot figure:

"Preorders Processing Soon - HAS25255 - Transformers Generations Titans Return Leader Wave 03 - Six Shot"

"We are expecting this item to arrive within the next 10 business days (barring any unforeseen complications or shipping delays) and will begin processing preorders as soon as the shipment reaches our warehouse."

Of course, we only know of Sixshot coming in now, but we'd be surprised if he was the only toy arriving. This possibly means that a container containing a bunch of Transformers products probably just came in to port or is scheduled to arrive soon and that the Optimus Prime and Megatron Voyagers and Sixshots are due to arrive soon, and possibly more Deluxe and Legends Wave 3 for other retailers that haven't received them. We can extrapolate that since BBTS gets their orders directly from Hasbro and thus the shipment would be for Hasbro proper, meaning that they could also ship them to their other direct retailers.

I agree and thats what I was thinking. All of their heads would turn into an homage for the minicons they came with. Plus no one would say: "turning Armada Sideswipe into a headmaster is terrible, he must retain his original gimmick" :lol:

It would be a super fun way to get armada updates to go with the others we already have.

If it helps the distribution argument, I just got emails from BBTS saying that Triggerhappy (and presumably the rest of the deluxes) and Sixshot will be in stock within 10 days.

Amen, brother. It's funny actually, because whilst his toy sucked, Armada Sideswipe's show model, and at the very least his toy's car mode, were pretty nice. His anime robot mode obviously had animation magic on his side, but the car mode was a nice rarity in Transformers in that it was a fairly "normal" family car, albeit a stylized, cool one. So many TFs turn into sports cars, and whilst I like sports cars as much as the next guy, it's neat to have something a little more "in disguise" now and then.

Absolutely. Honestly I'd be down for the whole cast done in TR form (except maybe Starscream as he already had a cool T30 figure, though I will admit a Voyager figure would be even more awesome- perhaps as a homage to his little buddy Swindle he could turn into a huge "land jet"/giant dragster...thing for his third mode, like one of those land speed record-breaker vehicles). I'd buy an updated Armada Blurr over a G1 Blurr to be honest, that car mode was sweet as hell.

What I really want, though, is a Hot Shot, if only for that crazy JaAm loving grin!

Did you know they already gave us an updated hotshot?

He was the first armada update we got. and I like what you wrote about Sideways' alt mode. Yeah, it was fun to just have a sedan like what we went on roadtrips in when we were kids. And yeah, I cant think of other TFs with such an inconspicuous car alt mode. I can only think of a sports car or a muscle car or an old timey car.

Yeah, I did know they did an updated Hot Shot for Universe 2.0. I heard it wasn't very good (with the Japanese version being the only one to come with guns), and more importantly, he didn't have his unhinged grin. Boo.

And yeah, it's a real shame that Armada Sideswipe sucked so hard...and got redeco'd over and over and over and over and over...(though admittedly often in some cool decos.) His car mode was great, but I feel an update is unlikely given how unpopular he was (AFAIK).

Completely changing the subject yet again, you know what would make an excellent mini-gimmick for a TR figure? Remember how Animated Oil Slick's head was in a dome/bell jar? Imagine a TR figure where you put the head on and then covered it with a translucent dome, like Oil Slick (except obviously with a bigger dome). Wouldn't necessarily have to be Oil Slick, but it'd be a pretty fun and different take on the "Headmaster gets a helmet over the top" gimmick of the Voyagers and Leaders of the line.

Found Legends BB at a local Target. Not collecting this wave of Legends, but just another notch in the belt. For TR as I've stated before I'm only collecting Titan Masters, Legends (that are Tablets), Leaders, and Titan Class (I know the deluxes and voyager are cool, but lack of connectitivty, I hagve to draw the line somewhere). But just sighting the figures has become a sort of game for my son and myself.

So, things that are presumably "Released" that I in Northern California have yet to see in a store:

1.Soundwave (even though I have him I ordered it on Amazon, I still want to see it in a store)
2. Wave 3 Voyagers (Prime & Megatron)
3. Sixshot

Not even considering wave 4 yet...

2 and 3 have yet to be released so I would say you are pretty much up to date. Although if you want wave 4, the deluxes started popping up in your area at Wallgreens.

I've never seen a shelf tag with the name of a specific figure.

Yeah I did stop in a couple of Walgreens, one was fully stocked with wave 2 Deluxes, the other had nothing. But I swear...you can trip over those stores, they seem to be everywhere. I don't even know if I can check them all.

Walmart did it a few months ago with a Topspin tag from a Walmart. While we ended up getting a Topspin, the tag was actually from the Fall of Cybertron deluxe from a few years ago.

So a question for the Jury: I was messing with TR Mindwipe this morning when I noticed this his mushroom caps for his lego rotation face out, as opposed to the normal inward orientation most figures have. The rest of his legs are fine, and it seems his feet tilt the right direction. Is this normal, or is he misassembled? What do your guys' look like? Here's some illustration to show what I mean.

They are like that so they don't show in bat mode.

P.s.

I was just thinking I don't think I've yet seen TR Kup side by side with Blurr and Hot Rod yet.

Anyone seen that in a video review or gallery anyplace yet ?

Ok, I did some rumor revisiting and... chances are Triggerhappy will be redecoed/retooled. However, it won't be as Slugslinger just to complete the Decepticon Targetmaster lineup. Of the Autobot ones, only Crosshairs was rumored (expect a Kup retool for him), no Sureshot or Pointblank, so Targetmasters are no big priority.

Nope, instead we overlooked another viable, rumored candidate:

Transformers G1 1988 Needlenose Gallery

As his fellow group member Quake has shown, straight redecos are not off the table.

I was thinking about Needlenose the other day and was trying to think of which mold they would use. While it's not the most G1 body I still think it would work, much like quake.

There's no doubt in my mind that by the end of the prime wars trilogy we'll have complete teams for everyone. Hasbro has said that they're done breaking up teams. I think they called it the seeker rule so the rest of the targetmasters will happen. Just like how I think we'll see the final scramble city combiners, headmaster juniors in full bodies and the other monsterbots in full bodies.

This is the way it's supposed to look.

If they were open on the inside instead they'd be very visible in bat mode. Having them open on the outside of the leg keeps them covered in bat mode.

Must be nice having options. We have a whole 14 stores in the entire state of Maine. Although, if the merger with Rite Aid ever does go through then my options will explode as we have 79 of those in the state. Then with my luck they'll probably stop doing the Walgreens exclusives and it'll all have been pointless for me.

Ah! Thanks to both of you. Just seemed strange to me, but that explains it!

Did they really say that about complete teams? Nice to know they took a lesson from the whole seeker issue way back.

I definitely read it somewhere but I can't seem to find it anywhere. So I suppose don't take what I said as fact but I thought it was brought up when someone asked about getting the other two leader seekers back when thundercracker was first revealed.

It was definitely said (at Toy Fair 2016?), but the question is whether or not they remember saying it.
