One of our esteemed Seibertronian moderators and everyone's favourite bro, Cobotron has made a pictoral review for Titans Return Chromedome and Mindwipe which we are sharing with you below. This is a man who knows how to play with his toys and he will share all the possible play patterns he has found, enjoy!

Transformers News: Pictorial Review for Transformers Titans Return Chromedome and Mindwipe

Titans Return Wave 2? Already? Well alright then!
I was lucky enough to get my hands on two Wave 2 Deluxes at Walgreens, thanks to a little tip from a fellow collector.
I picked up Mindwipe and Chromedome.
Let's have a look!

Mindwipe. I am having a blast with this one. He is a great update to the original toy. The robot mode is fantastic, and makes for a really fun action figure.

The larger weapon that doubles as a Titan Master ride-on is a little goofy and clumsy, but we'll have a little more fun with it in a minute.
In robot mode, Mindwipe has great articulation. I'm only slightly bothered by his molded perma-tilt ankles. It almost seems like it was intended that he have pose-able ankles, but it probably got nixed by the Parts Count Police. The bat wing to robot leg transformation is wonderful!

Again, I am really liking this toy. I'm enjoying him for what he is, and I tend not to put to many expectations on these main line toys, but I fear Mindwipe may catch a lot of flack from the fandom. In robot mode, the bat head just sits on his back like a ... bat-pack? Also he has a lot of rubber molded parts. This might disappoint a lot of folks, but from a safety and non-breakage/durability stand point, I can see why they went this route. Lastly his alt/beast mode is a bit of a kibble fest.

Bat Pack

Let's look at his beast mode.

That is one gnarly maw!
Transformers News: Pictorial Review for Transformers Titans Return Chromedome and Mindwipe

The amount of sculpted detailing on this line has been fantastic so far, and Mindwipe is no exception. I love those creepy little bat hands sculpted into the wings. He also ranks high in the paint apps department. He isn't dripping with paint, but the placement of the apps is really tasteful.

Vorath
Transformers News: Pictorial Review for Transformers Titans Return Chromedome and Mindwipe
One thing that has me a bit concerned is, the Wave 1 Deluxes' Titan Masters all had some small amount of paint, which looked great. So far Vorath and Stylor have none.

Now, what all you MuhTuMTEers have been waiting for...

Chromedome.

Transformers News: Pictorial Review for Transformers Titans Return Chromedome and Mindwipe

This robot mode is just AWESOME! So stable and so cool looking. He is a serious hunk of beef cake with his He-Man physique. He is articulated in all the right places, a good solid action figure, and very stable.

Transformers News: Pictorial Review for Transformers Titans Return Chromedome and Mindwipe

Let's just go ahead and address the elephant in the room. Yes. He shares the transformation engineering of the Deadend/Prowl mold, but he is indeed his very own mold. And an amazing one at that. Both modes are phenomenal. I would say they took that engineering and perfected it. Everything tabs and clicks together so well. The more I played with him and admired both modes, the more I thought, when both modes are this good, does it really matter how we get from one to the other? There are a few differences between the final transformations. It's a good transformation scheme that alleviates the telescoping leg method. It works! And it works well.

While an entirely new mold, he is not wholly original. His hips, thighs, and knees are shared parts with the Blurr/Brainstorm mold. He also comes with their gun.

I had only three Head Masters in my collection as a kid, and none of them were these three. I have patiently waited for a revisit/revamp of these characters for a long time. Seeing this crew on my desk makes me very happy.

Let's get silly before we check out his alt mode.

Did I mention the delicious translucent wheels? YUM!

Transformers News: Pictorial Review for Transformers Titans Return Chromedome and Mindwipe

This is such an awesome update to that clunky yet lovable alt mode of the original toy. It keeps all the charm of the old, but bumps it up a notch on the cool-o-meter with some new styling.
If you look where the canopy meets the rear window, you can see that my copy has a bit of a sloppy paint app. (The red. it's not like that on the other side.). I hope this isn't a wide spread problem, but I'm not loosing any sleep over it.

Over all he is an awesome toy. In style and function, he is among the best of the line so far. Such an amazing update of the original, and he is sure to scratch the Chromedome itch of G1 and IDW fans alike.

Have fun with Toys!

Copied engineering, shared parts, cutting back on already sparse paint... awful lot of corners being cut.

Mindwipe's kinda the exact opposite of what I want. Generic robot that doesn't even look like it transforms, and a bat mode compromised to hell and back. Meh.


Can you imagine what Wave 2 of the Legends would look if they still packaged everyone in alt mode? :lol:

I would love the Mindwipe mold... As Swoop. Hasbro should listen to Seibertron. ;)^

As for Wave 2 Legends, yes, yes I could. We'd have a tank, a weird assault vehicle, and a jet of some sort. ;)

Ehhhh Mindwipe looks awful. Weirdly proportioned robot mode, no ankle articulation despite there obviously being room to implement them, appalling bat mode... I'll track down FP's version.

Chromedome loos pretty good, but again, there was obviously room for ankles there. And where is all the paint? I'll go Takara if I get him at all.

I think Chromedome has enough paint. All the appropriate details are there, except for maybe some silver and red highlights that wouldn't really add much to the figure. At least he has different plastic colors for his deco to make up for any lacking paint, unlike some figures ,that may or may not be named Blurr and Scourge.

We shall see what they've done this time out. Turning it into an aircraft carrier seems a bit of a reach...

I, uh. I'm a bit confused by your comment. Are you under the assumption that this Broadside is a retool of Thrilling 30 Springer...?


I donno man - I'm seeing bits of Springer/Sandstorm in that figure - especially round the shoulders...

It's, uh. It's really not. Anything you're seeing is coincidental; I really don't see how it could be a Springer retool at all.


Looking more closely, it's true the legs and body definitely aren't springer/sandstorm's. Must have been the shoulders/arms....

Right, that can work, but tidalwave has a very distinct head design, and that just doesn't cut it, it really comes off looking like megatron that's pouting because someone spray-painted him green while he was napping.

Couldn't they just do an extending head piece like blurr? It'll be thinner than the original but it would still give a similar look.

It's Broadside. Not a TFA knockoff. Why do people think this has a mouth and eyes when that COMPLETELY goes against the whole TR aesthetic? :-(

Has anyone put Constructbot wheels in Chromedome's shoulders yet? Give him that IDW look. That's been my plan since I saw him spoiled, but probably be awhile til wave 2 hits my area.

All congrats Cobster! One major thing to mention, all these 1st party releases are dirt cheap over the 3rd company figs. Though all are attractive, nothing beats the originals at an acceptable price points.

Mr Chaos posted a slew of new listings found on a store computer for the Transformers Titans Return line. We have included them below with some images for reference throughout his post which was first seen on TFW2005. Mr Chaos has posted listings like this before and the last time, they all panned out. You can see his previous forecast here.

Mr. Chaos wrote:Once more my wonderful friend/source of information was able to dig through the Product Listings at his store's computer and revealed some new and rather interesting upcoming Titan Returns Figures.

First, let us start with the Voyagers, as these are the ones that are the least surprising.

First we have Broadside who was already revealed via a prototype. However, with his case number (C0277) it is clear he will be the only new figure in his Wave with some other Voyager getting a second release with him.

The wave after his sees the two everyone knew was coming: Octane (C2396) and Blitzwing (C2397).


This is interesting as this confirms that Titans Return will be lasting more than than just one year total as was once rumoured.

TR 2017 Voyager wave 1: Optimus Prime and Megatron
TR 2017 Voyager wave 2: Broadside and a rereleased Decepticon (probably Galvatron)
TR 2017 Voyager wave 3: Octane and Blitzwing
TR 2017 Voyager wave 4: Unknown but this would be where Tidal Wave comes in if he is indeed being released as a redeco of Broadside.

Next we move on to the legends with a surprise: Cosmos (C2398) is getting released! No idea if this will simply be his Generations Figure rereleased or a brand new mold. Coming with him will be Seaspray (C2399).

Finally the Titan Masters which are the most surprising of the listings. First we have Toraizer (C2390). Next, and quite a shocker, is Optimus Prime (C2389), who will be released as a Titan Master. And finally we have Ramhorn (C2391). And before anyone asks... yes, Titan Master Ramhorn and NOT Legends Ramhorn. I had my friend/source triple check the UPC, the Case Code, Pricing, so on and everything has him listed in the Titan Masters group.


Toraizer is like Sawback/Lione and Shuffler, a Titan Master based on small G1 Transforming animals that turned into a head to fit on the larger Headmasters. It will probably be based on the Sawback mold since they are both big cats. Below is an image of G1 Toraizer for reference.

Tidal wave is actually supposed to be part of the strength set which is most likely a special box set with the decepticon clones, a repaint of Powermaster prime, and iron apex. Then there's the speed set with Nautica the autobot clones, quickswitch and a Voyager.

Gotta say I'm disappointed in the lack of cassettes in this line. Sure Soundwave has all of his originals except frenzy so far but blaster only has rewind and stripes. Instead of adding a legends ramhorn or someone else they're doing another cosmos.

No one knows yet it's all just best guesses. I doubt it'll be a platinum set, it's more likely going to be similar to the combiner wars g2, Victorion and Computron sets.

Since I pre-ordered UW Computron from BBTS, I was heavily leaning toward adding Cosmos to my POL to spread out the shipping cost. Now I'll need to see the TR version first to make a decision.

I was never a huge fan of Seaspray, but will have to grab it for the collection.

A seperate post for a seperate idea. This interview has John Warden state that the whole concept of retools has changed since CW. Now they plan the whole line out and see what they can do. So its no longer putting new heads on the same body (aside from when its exactly that). And I like how he uses the word pretool, which means its part of the Hasbro lexicon now. You can see that at the 2 minute mark. Personally, I much preffer the idea of parts sharing to make different figures rather than have a main mold that is then retooled.

So then Titan Master Ramhorn is to counter Overboard/Overkill then. Hopefully that means we have a rhino partner vehicle coming.

I really hope the whole box set thing is someone trolling because that sounds like a terrible idea. Combiners are one thing since ideally you'd want a complete set, but shoehorning random characters together to make teams of exclusive characters is just terrible.

The Titan Master class Optimus Prime could be the Star Convoy-based head that was supposed to come with the Voyager in addition to the G1 Laser OP head that it does come with (despite the Voyager sporting a more Star Convoy-based deco in its robot mode)

When you say it like that, it sounds terrible. But these aren't the higher end collectibles of Botcon. It's like a big box of characters at around their combined retail price. That just stinks to me

That's not an entirely fair comparison. Sure, BotCon made a lot of neat stuff, but rarely anything I felt I must have to complete a retail collection. Not after the Games of Deception set which Hasbro had to back pedal on and redo half the characters for retail. BotCon sets work since they're often standalone sets, but to do what's described with mashing new characters together with better painted versions of figures I already own is the wrong way to do things.

I feel like Cosmos will leave a lot of people disappointed. Think about it, there's only two ways for them to do him in this line: either he'll be compromised to fit a Titan Master inside him, or he'll turn into a mobile device to stick in Blaster's chest. Neither of those options sound too great to me.

Ok, time to recap the rumored figures:

Titan Master Class
Repugnus
Optimus Prime
Ramhorn
Shuffler
Trizer/Toraizer

Legends Class
Cosmos
Seaspray

I believe Legends Brawn was debunked as a communication error.

Deluxe Class
Quake
Krok
Topspin
Sergeant Kup
Perceptor

Voyager Class
Broadside
Blitzwing
Octane/Tankor
Tidal Wave with Powerhouse

Wait... as we never had a G1 Tidal Wave, and lost trademarks are plentiful in TR, wouldn't it be possible that Tidal Wave is Broadside's new name? :shock:

Leader Class
Magnus Prime

If I remember right, since Brawn and Gnaw were both planned as Legends originally (and canceled) whoever leaked the names assumed that would still be true for Titans Return. I think someone else said that Hasbro said the missing Legends figures would be released soon which added to the confusion until Titan Master Brawn was revealed.

Some interesting stuff here though some of it was obvious, like the triple changers. Though talking about them, last time we had octane he was renamed tankor (giving us thin tankor in IDW) So have they got the rights back for that name? I mean it doesn't bother me if he is tankor but it's a curious thing.

Also these rumoured box sets, aren't the autobot heroes platinum sets a similar composition? I.e. A leader class, a voyager class 2-3 deluxes?

Why would Galvatron be rereleased

It hasn't been debunked anymore than it's been confirmed. The miscommunication thing was speculation

Tidal Wave with Powerhouse

Powerhouse is not Tidal waves titan master. Powerhouse is a die cast exclusive titan master not associated with a full body

Leader Class
Magnus Prime

You forgot quickswitch and Overlord

As far As the box set rumors go every rumor that's been released so far is here http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-toy-discussion/1046898-transmissions-podcast-titan-wars-leaks-rumors.html and the strength and speed rumors are at the episode 157 point and goes down. The post says they're lines but when listening to the actual podcast it's unclear how they're being released, box set makes the most sense to me though. They also talk about a Voyager optimus in the speed set but I think that too is a mistake.

It's just what Hasbro does for different waves. For instance, the recent Wave 2 has their Leader class be made up of Soundwave and a Powermaster Prime re-release. Fills up the assortments.



I really hope that boxset thing is fake. I don't want to have to get two more deluxes, a voyager and a frikkin' leader just to get Nautica, especially when I couldn't care less about Quickswitch and the autobot clones. I'm sure they'll be great toys, but I'm kind of on a budget and want to prioritise MTMTE. If they're really gonna do this I'm actually gonna be a little angry.

Wait, it says items 3-5 + Voyager Prime. Nautica is listed as item 6.

Same way Voyager Motormaster and Onslaught were rereleased in Combiner Wars. Its just a way to keep toys on the shelf without making new toys. Only 6 voyagers got released in 2015, but it seems 2016 has gotten 7 voyagers.

You are missing a few here no? Like pounce, wingspan, iron apex, Nautica, fastlane, cloud raker.

My speculation, to be exact :lol: I'll believe it when I see it. But I do hope for it, I wouldnt mind more Brawn and the fact that we are seeing the same charactes appear in multiple classes means nothing is off the table.
