While we had several images of the second wave of Titans Return toys at SDCC's Preview Night, we now have a few more featuring Apha Trion. What is fun is that you can see all his three modes in one fell swoop: The Majestic Robot, the Horned Lion and the Cybertronian Cruiser.

Do you think he has it in him to be one of the best triple changers of all time? Maybe top 5? Is that even a hard feat? Let us know!

Not saying I agree, I'm fine with and actually like Blurr being a headmaster; but I don't think this is a valid argument.

People asked if there would be fiction supporting this. Hasbro said not necessarily and people didnt like that because it made even less sense to change the toys (even though its the other dam way aound). But now there is from Takara. So you get the best of both worlds. You get fiction which supports the new toy and at the same time they dont have to change anything in MTMTE.



That's what really ticks me off anymore. This is not directed at you Will but you bring up a point that just grinds my gears. People demand an explanation for everything and get pissy when a toy doesn't have fiction, or has a new feather they they haven't had before. "Why is blur a headmaster? Why is Galvatron? Sky Lynx never combined before I need to know why they're doing this"

What happened to people having an imagination?

I was kinda thinking the same thing. I love the comics and the old cartoon. Great stories, great fiction. But with my toys, I totally make up reasons for a toy to be the way it is. I don't know why all the "It's not in the fiction, so I can't like and/or accept it!!!" thoughts.

Make up your own story. Stop worrying. It's a toy with a head. You'll feel better.

If it's not EXACTLY like how it was when I was a kid, no matter how badly drawn what I had as a kid was, then this new stuff SUCKZ!!!!

I was on the fence about Alpha Trion, but those pics look really good.

I think it's more the idea that they're getting a new, re-invented version of the character first rather than a representation of what they had as a kid - which, considering Generations literally being a redone G1 line at this point, is what would be the main draw.

Again though, personally I like Blurr and the like being headmasters as it adds play value, and I like Sky Reign because Sky Reign is awesome. My only problem comes when the new gimmick takes away in some fashion, like with the now-infamous Galvatron Headmaster Crown.

I agree with both of you, hence why I dont feel this comic changes anything for me in the least. I love my toys and they can be whatever I choose them to be :)

Exactly. I know you're joking but how many times do we see people actually being serious about that? It's ridiculous the entitlement people feel they deserve on toys that are an option to continue getting.

Good thing you and your Blue Bluestreak have plenty of it to share! :D

Also, I just noticed that A3's side antennae/ears are like the helmets or Sentinel's head guards, not part of the actual titanmaster :oops:

Not me. Don't need an explanation and I don't demand one. I can create my own and enjoy what I get.

I was just looking at the original Powermaster Optimus Prime and got a little curious: can anyone show a size comparison of TR PMOP's vehicle mode cab with say, Classics or CW Optimus' vehicle mode? It'd be interesting to see if they're similarly sized...

Considering it is the same size as Magnus, I'd say check out the Emgo review here:



If I'm remembering watching the review correctly, the leader cab is dwarfed by the voyagers

This is all I could find for comparisons:

It's smaller. Smaller than a deluxe vehicle but little bigger than a legends toy
