Fellow Seibertronian Ebonyleopard has already provided us images of the alt modes for the Chaos on Velocitron set and now not only does he have the robot modes, but he also has a written review for us, which you can find below. Allow me to spoil something first though, Quickswitch does not have the retooled helmet shown in the Hasbro renders. Instead his body is a straight up redeco of Sixshot.

Ebonyleopard wrote:Ok. So, Fastclash Aka Fastlane is incredibly simple to transform (though so was his G1 counterpart). BUT, there is transformation elements in him that do not get used in his conversion but is obviously built in for his clone brother, Cloudraker. So it's a definite we'll be getting one of him.

Rodimus Prime head is nice, the colors are much more muted than Hot Rod's with a slight Magenta like color on the crest of his forehead. The diecast is only in the face of the TM, not the whole TM.

Nautica is pretty much what you'd expect from a Blurr repaint. Same transformation, though her head definitely goes in nice and snug (was almost worried I was pushing too hard to get it in place. The connection hole was pretty tight). There is no given name for her TM, so I guess he's wholely Nautica.

Laser Prime is EXACTLY like the already release nor traditionally colored Prime coming out now. His head is much more light blue than I was expecting. I'd say, if you gotta get one, you might as well wait for this boxset to come out and just own it once as a Prime. G2 color scheme does look nice on him and while the stickers are decently added on, some seem to be just slightly big for the area they are covering (particularly on the chest) and of course, who wouldn't rather put the stickers on themselves if something is going to have stickers?

Quickswitch is indeed his father's son. He's pretty much a straight recoloring of Sixshot with the only different thing being the TM face plate. He does indeed have the same helmet as Quickswitch. Easiest way to make them look dramatically different from one another is to not pull out the chest wings and just leave them inside their inner compartment. That being said though, his paint is well done. They've pretty much nailed the color scheme. Really the thing that would have made it stand out more would have been if they gave him different weapons (Render form folks, you got some work to do. New guns for Quickswitch, a gun for Fastclash, and a wrench for Nautica).

Overall, is the set worth $99? I think so. They're nice updates of their G1 (or in the case of Prime G2) counterparts, and while many are repaints, the paint jobs are decent enough to visually make them look different from their original mode brothers (or fathers).

Now to get another Hot Rod for the Rodimus Head (and maybe someone will make a trailer attachment for this Hotrod like they did in the past for the old Generations Rodimus). :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK: :KREMZEEK:

Ah man, that's too bad that he still has Sixshot's helmet (you wrote that he has "the same helmet as Quickswitch" in your post BTW) but it looks like the colors are different enough that he can stand relatively well apart from Sixshot! Especially with the chest-wings in, and the wolf-toes tucked up in robot mode (as opposed to Sixshot, on whom I will be keeping those toes flipped out).

Also, someone get onto that symbol on his headband! Is it the same as Sixshot's? Does it mean something? I don't know!

Quickswitch's symbol on his head is the same as Sixshot's, but flipped upside down. 8-}

Edit: Actually. No it's not. Just looked closser. It's its own symbol.
Myyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy Baaaaaaaaaaaaad. :lol:

Sooo.... What's the deal with Fastlane? It looks like he doesn't have a Titan Master, yet... Is he a Deluxe Class, or is he more like a Legends class?

Would it really have killed them to do a little more retooling? Puma head for Quickswitch and a rounder shield/front for Nautica. It can't have been that difficult.

Hasbro you were being a bit cheap with the render showing Quickswitch with a new helm then not actually giving him it.

And do I need to come round to Rhode Island and explain to you personally that a Doggy-&-a-Pussy are not the same thing.

The closest Kanji I can find to resembling that symbol is the Kanji 廿 (Nijū), which means 20.

Not sure why they'd pick that for a Sixchanger, if that even is what the symbol is supposed to be.

When I get the set, I might consider selling off Quickswitch. Don't really want or need him. the other 4 though look good enough and I'll keep them.

Dammit for the stickers. Gah, stupid things

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed in TR that there have been more leader Decepticons? Soundwave, Six Shot, and Sky Shadow for the Decepticons with only Prime and Blaster for the Autobots.

A little disappointing that Quickswitch got the short end of the quick-stick, but it doesn't really matter if he'll be a back liner on the shelf. Also a little worrying I'll be experiencing half the mold for the first time from this set :shock:
I'm never forgiving my local TRU. They seriously just restocked CW WAVE 6!!!!!! :BOOM:

Similarly, CW had Megatron, Armada Megatron, and the three Seekers vs. just Ultra Magnus.

It's just this time they are making good Decepticons

You guys are over thinking it, it's just the crest on the original figure's forehead slightly embellished.

The Clones are all tentatively designated as Legends Class figures, but a combination of factors renders them unfit for individual sale. Fastclash having no cockpit is directly inspired by G1 Fastlane:

Cloudraker does have one, so make of that what you will.

Victim of sharing a torso design with a jet. Apparently it makes more sense to not sculpt a window on a car than to explain why a jet has a vestigial window on the back. Frankly, I would have gone with the window.

Other Legends Class figures, except for Rewind and Rumble have no weapons either, so it's par on course. Fastclash should have the standard 5mm holes, so he could always borrow some guns.

And I hope that helmet is an overlooked error on Quickswitch, so it can be fixed with a running change. Not that I should care, right?

So Quickswitch has his crest on the Titan Master, but no remolded helmet?
That's a big mistake.
How does go about reporting a major error like this to Hasbro?

Also as a bonus it looks like a "V" with a horizontal "I" (yeah, I'm reaching) for a grand total of VI

Also from these boxsets I believe we're evening out on Leaders by faction.

Autobots:
Powermaster Optimus Prime
Blaster
Quickswitch
Magnus Prime

Decepticons:
Soundwave
Six Shot
Sky Shadow
Overlord

At least for me, the clones will probably get Hot Rod's guns...

Or he'll keep them and Titan Master Roddy Prime will man them like a boss. I haven't decided yet

Clones are their own class and not linked to Titans Return in aany way in terms of functionality. So no titan masters, no way to pilot them, really their own subline divided up in 4 boxsets. They are also the size of the old scouts.

I am also peeved by this. Its minimal effort.

I am surprised, I thought you were really looking forward to having two of this mold :-P

hasbro said they were focusing on decepticons in this line and releasing all six phasers. So what you are noticing is something hasbro already confirmed is happening.

Arent all Decepticons bad :-? ;)

My dear Emerje, you are a bit out of the loop here. Look at the most recent news stories about this set and you will understand whats going on here.
