Cloudraker and Wingspan - the Titans Return Clone 2-pack - have yet to be spotted at Wallgreens around America, but a few people have managed to get their hands on the mold-mates of Fastclash and Pounce. One of those people just happens to be fellow Seibertronian Insurgent, who's been kind enough to share with us not just a few in-hand images of the two Legends-class figures - showing among other things the cards and Cloudraker's Titan Master compatibility - but also their thoughts in a little mini-review! Check out said review and images below and tell us if you plan to get the 2-pack in the forums!


Cloudraker and Wingspan came today. I absolutely love these little guys. The arms could do with pegging in somewhere in alt mode (I did it without instructions, maybe I'm just missing soemthing). But they have oodles of character and charm. I've been keeping an eye out for the G1 con clones for years, so I'm happy to be getting this modern version. And Pounce has a little Titan ankle slot behind his bird head so the Titan masters can ride him. And it look ssooooooooo freaking adorable. And worth noting, Cloudraker's wings don't seem to sit flush straight in jet mode, they angle downwards to form a nice triangle with the front landing skid, though that skid keeps folding away by itself. They also have a really nice box. I don't normally comment on those, but it feels really high quality.

Yes, they came with two Cloudraker instructions instead of a Pounce.

Does anyone remember this "leaked" list?

Image

It lists several figures that were in box sets individually.

Has the steam of new info slowed down now? Is it safe for me to come out? *climbs out of her burrow* :shock:

*ahem* OK, let's see what we have here:

Image

An Ultra Magnus Titan Master from Stylor... with Fangry/Brisko's head it seems. I didn't know Hasbro was suddenly into mixing and matching unrelated toolings. Either that, or it's an unused pretooled head, making him more like Fracas and Xort, or an artist goofup. The theory of him being a release of a box set Titan Master is plausible, except unlike Rodimus Prime and Thunderwing he has no retooled chest from what I can tell.

Image

Another Blurr retool? She just needs the wheels :lol: I wouldn't worry too much about the shoulders, like Laser Prime's cab it's an artifact from the original figure that may not show in the final toy.

Image

Joy! Names for the box set Titan Masters too?! Bah, and I had profiles and names made up for them. They were good too! :evil:

I will largely agree with the theory that Ultra Magnus and Arcee may be from originally planned sets, but plans changed early enough in the process (I think somewhere between final production of the toys and the printing of the boxes) for them to be "salvaged" and shuffled about. However, I wonder what fate will befall the Leaders and Voyagers. Standalone exclusive releases via the original retailers?

I have terrible news guys. John Warden has just confirmed that Slugslinger is the only new toy in his wave, everything else is a repack. He is the final TR toy to be released at mass retail (and yes, that means that retailer exclusives like Orion Pax can still come out). But nothing else in the mainline.

So yes, that means that a line where every voyager was a triplechanging headmaster did not include apeface and snap dragon as voyagers. I am speechless.

Wingspan and Cloudraker don't look bad, but the clones kinda lose their charm if you don't have both, since their gimmick is looking like each other. I'll probably pass on this unless by some miracle a more practical way of getting Pounce and Fastclash shows up.

That's... horrible

To be fair, however, Jazz looks like he can combine.

So Titans Return has ended earlier than expected? Bummer, to be fair, it was never officially confirmed it would have 6 waves worth of figures for each Size Class like Combiner Wars, was it?

They never gave us a figure count. All they said was that Power of the Prime was starting in begining 2017 which I guess meant TR ended right before.

And there will still be a wave 6 but it will all be rereleases. Like the Wave 6 of CW for Leader class.

I hate to see TR end so soon, but I'm excited for PotP....I can't wait to see more info on their Leaders, as I've enjoyed the ones for TR quite a bit!

There's always Power of the Primes for Apex Bomber.

Skywave? i mean it would be cool if he got a Tankette vehicle like Hardhead :-D
I don't know why he's called Flattop, :CON:
Image

It's because of the aircraft carrier. Flattop is a slang term for aircraft carrier.

I actually brought up a while back that Flattop would be a good repurposing of Siege on Cybertron Tidal Wave.

Warden said "no plans for Godbomber in the U.S.", not strictly for Titans Return.

Ok, lets assume it is based on Blurr's TM...isn't that thing behing him Arcee's leg? What if they were part of the same set? What Ultra Magnus IS Arcee's partner?
Also...what if this is the HasCon exclusive? Maybe they won't release the other 2 boxsets at retail because they were repurposed as the convention set? Mayber one as a set and the other split into antendee's exclusives or freebie figures like it was in BotCon?

Unlikely.

Most of the speculation is based on the list of Titan Master names that's on the Trypticon cereal box. One of the names is "Leinad" which is "Daniel" spelled backwards, the one who Arcee bonded with in The Rebirth. Besides, what would Arcee be doing in that image, with Ultra Magnus separated? :lol:
There's no precedent for regular retail releases being repurposed as convention items. The reverse however has happened in the past, and only with leftover stock. Alternators Nemesis Prime comes to mind here.
Finally, we don't know the nature of Hascon's exclusives, though given the nature and size it's more than possible they'll follow the SDCC format and not the FunPub-run BotCon one.

So am I, Will, so am I...I WANTED SNAPDRAGON, GOD DAMN IT!!!
Lets hope the rumors of PotP having Triplechanging Optimus Primal and Megatron to be retooled into those two turns out to be true.

Hey, one can hope :(
But they did NOT come out at retail, they haven't been announced at all(as of now, at least), besides, John Warden said that they wouldn't come out as boxsets in the way they have so far, they would come out in other forms.

Domino of TF2005 has spotted Titans Return Deluxe Wave 5 at retail! Windblade, Misfire and Twin Twist were discovered at Target in Hoover, Alabama. Soon these figures should start appearing all over the states, happy hunting!

If you find any cool new figures near you, please be sure to let us know!

I really love Titans Return and I liked Combiner wars a bit but with Power of the Primes so far being weak with being retools and reused gimmicks as well as this wave 6 business this here further cements to me that Warden and his team have very little idea on what their doing with the line with these questionable decisions.

What happens after POTP is done and over with and the Prime wars trilogy is over, is generations done with because what else can they actually do besides remake characters who don't have updates yet?

Actually if Generations was done and over with that could allow Hasbro to put effort in main lines that need it like Rid and the movies.
