Through TFW2005 user burrociano, we have some rather exciting news that Titans Return Deluxe Brainstorm and Platinum Combiner Wars Liokaiser have both been spotted in the retail chain Ripley in Chile. This is their first sighting outside of Walgreens and Entertainment Earth respectively; and indeed, outside of America - perhaps foreshadowing retail release elsewhere in the world. Feel free to chat about Liokaiser in the Combiner Wars thread, or the resurrection of Braingate in the Titans Return thread in the Energon Pub!

And, for the record, if you zoom in on Brainstorm...

You see he's standing on Alpha Bravo packaging; AB being the favourite of Va'al who popularised Braingate. We've come full circle.

I wonder if Hasbro is pondering the idea of the *Deluxe Insecticon Barrage made from Titans Returns Kickback ?

*(Don't get confused as I said Deluxe it's what he was called 30 or so years ago).

------

I was wondering does TR Rumble still have those arms that don't transform without scaring you that they want to snap off ?
I think they should fix them if they ever get around to doing Eject & Frenzy too.

I'm a little concerned that Titans Returns is going to have more incomplete sets than any Transformers line in history as it is.

I'm pretty sure an alternate head is built in already, "just in case". In fact, Bombshell may have one too. :)

You did get names mixed up: the grasshopper is Ransack, and the rhinoceros beetle is Barrage. If Chop Shop did well enough in popularity (he got two releases already!), the rest shouldn't be far behind. Too bad there's no analog for Venom the cicada (by the by, they don't sting at all!).

Yeah and not all spiders are venomous but I'm still not going anywhere near the creepy looking things! :-P

You're down under, that's different. You got Redbacks, the US got Black Widows and Brown Recluses, Europe has... cute and harmless Garden Spiders :x

Did you know? Nobody in Australia has died from a spider bite since 1979, thanks to the development of anti-venoms.


Also, I want to say Bombshell could reasonably be retooled into Venom --similar squat li'l bugs with similar transformation schemes-- except the legs/abdomen would get in the way of any wings...

Okay so for some reason my latest email about this thread keeps taking me to the MP Cheetor discussion topic instead of this one. Did a post get moved or something?

Not at all; we all make mistakes like that. Especially for characters as obscure as those.

Just as long as we all know Rumble's the red one ;)^

How did Australia and the UK get them so early.

They have been getting them early since wave 1, this isnt new. US got them 1-2 months after Australia (at retail).

^ ditto.
I think the last thing we had early was wave 1 of Combiner Wars

I wonder if the reason the UK is getting some waves is that they have under-manufactured them so they seem to be selling out a lot of places so when a store reorders they know they have non in the warehouse so they have to place a ship-in order from Vietnam and thus the newer stuff shows up unusually quickly.

Other times the UK has had things early but only Forbidden Planet got them as the stock was still being sent out ad-hoc from earlier waves.

As I have mentioned before I pretty much consider Titans Returns to be a mostly online release in the UK as the few places that have it are no where near me and places like Supermarkets don't seem to be stocking it at all.
(except some of the very largest ones)

For example I have two Large Tesco near me and neither have b***er all Transformers toys - they have a whole isle of just throw cushions mind you.

One of the smaller ones had a 12 foot long section of just Paw Patrol - and one tiny segment for all other toys - UK supermarkets are quite odd.

I can just hope they might wake up before Xmas - but the Discount stores are kinda terrible this year too. B&M & Home Bargains is floating in Girls Toys - and TK Maxx seems to have got over it's brief love affair with Transformers and gone back to mostly selling stuffed toys - electronic Baby toys and diecast cars & trucks & lots and lots of Dinosaurs.

So I'm glad for those who have a good TRU - might help if they actually listed more of what they have online though.
