We never had a clear release date for the Walgreen's exclusive Titans Return Brainstorm but the wait is over. Brainstorm has just been found in a Walgreens in San Diego, in the toy aisle, by Transformers fan Michael. The finding was posted on Facebook. Good luck with the hunt and let us know where you spot him in the site's sighting section and the sightings forum.

If you want to get a good look at this Blurr retool before purchasing it, we have some in hand images of this figure comparing it to the other modern Brainstorm releases.

My Walgreen's got a truck in today. Is there a good chance he was on that truck

He looks a lot better in hand than that overly-bright colour he had in the rendering. Wouldn't mind having him for a MTMTE display.

Love 'em all :x

Thanks man! And while I am impressed with all the work done with him, even down to he inclusion of scratches on his claws which are all purposefully made, I really wonder why it was done to this toy and not others, like Blurr or Highbrow or Scourge who dont have great variations in colour. But at least we have Wolfwire.

Because he uses his claws and his beast mode - it helps sell that his alt mode is a wolf for a reason other than nostalgia ;)

Yeah, come to think of it, shouldn't Darkmoon have mass-shifting, and Apeface give cons the ability to detach an arm and wield it as a blunt instrument in battle? No wait, that would just lead to kids permanently breaking arms off their new toys.

And while it makes some sense for Flywheels-homage-TM to let TFs make duplicates, it'd make a lot more sense for Scourge's little buddy Fracas. Dang shame CW just did Cyclonus, since Nightstick could have Retcon-Reconstruct, allowing any TF he's attached to to have been Skywarp, Bombshell, or whoever he feels like at the moment, in a previous life. That'd fit right in with some of these guys' abilities.

Not complaining of course. What better way to sell kids on the concept than vague, game-killing powers for the pricier toys? Galvatron powers up to infinity and blows up Cybertron, but Sentinel reorders the universe so that it continues to exist, and Chromedome jumps in and fixes Galvy's brain...then Wolfwire loops time back so that none of this happened in the first place!

Why is everyone taking the "looks to impose his will upon the universe" line from Sentinel's bio extremely literally as if he has an actual physical power to do that? It's clearly just a vague line referencing his role in various media where he wants to dictate over others and impose his views upon everyone. Since this is an Autobot toy they made it a bit more vague to kids so they could possibly see it as him heroically imposing justice upon villains or something.
It even says his Titan Master's power is a temporary forcefield which has nothing to do with reality-warping or whatever. This is a really bizarre interpretation when it's so obvious what they're going for and what they're referencing.

Well, I was talking about how children might misinterpret this.

But don't worry: when the new Sky/Black-Shadow comes out, I'll be sure to explain to younger TF fans that this time, he really is the entire Space Mafia.

I have a feeling our stores are a good 4–6 weeks behind southern and coastal state stores. TRU does have a couple Fort Max on hand, which has been available for a couple weeks, though, so I decided to snag one of those. I am just getting tired of waiting for Chromedome and Highbrow to hit the shelves.


Try Walgreens. That's where Titans Return deluxe Wave 2 has been showing up in the Minnesota Twin Cities area. I snagged my Highbrow and Chromedome there. Be warned, Walgreens sells the deluxes for a whopping $20 USD! I also spotted a lone Chromedome about a week or two ago at the T1 Target in Roseville, MN. The wait should be almost over, I imagine.

Odd, my Walgreens is selling thembfor $13.99.


Decided to try stopping by Walgreens in Moorhead tonight on a whim, and BOOM, they had one Chromedome hiding behind a full rack of brand new Brainstorms.

I checked two Walgreens stores on my way home from work tonight, and found no sign of Brainstorm anywhere. Just a Scourge and Highbrow at one and a Chromdome with a huge paint scratch on his mouth plate at the other. At least the former store had their Titans Return deluxe figures marked down to the "New Low Price" of $18.99. :P

I hope my hunt goes better tomorrow.

And talking about toys's boxes, Sentinel Prime's box says he has time manipulation powers (he can slow down time).



This does add to his already impressive putative power list.

Haven't found one in the few in nyc I've checked. Hoping to find it tomorrow or over the weekend.

Checked two Walgreens in PDX, OR, and no luck on Brainstorm either - both had wave 2, but not Mindwipe.

I like how Skytread looks on Mindwipe, btw! At this point, though, I'm really only looking for Alpha Trion....

After playing around with Chromedome a little I'm starting to like him a lot more. The car mode is really beautiful and this engineering benefits from being a Headmaster more than the Dead End mold did with it's awkward head transformation. Only thing that really annoys me is that while I do love when vehicle modes can be piloted, Stylor doesn't have anywhere to peg in so you just sort of put him on the seat and then he shakes all over the place once you close the window over and just slightly move domey. Let's just hope Prowl doesn't ask for his license.

I like the green it reminds me of Smart Robin.

I have to say though that the situation with him Internationally is going to be a pain or a Puzzle - Is he going to get released as a Sainsbury's Or Tesco exclusive or something like that or is European fans going to have to import him. (If they can find one at all) some importers got him I guess.

It would have been really cute if instead of a single figure (Because he's green ?) they'd have done a wave of 4 I'm sure there is plenty of wacky ideas for toys for such a line for example :

Soundwave or Ratbat Bat
Optimus Prime or Megatron Aligator
Cybertron Snarl or Beast Wars WolfFang the Wolf
Megatron Helicopter (from Highbrow)
Arcee from Blurr

Or even another style of Chromedome.

To slightly change topic I noticed it was crazy difficult to get Skullsmashers gun in an out of his tail - but after a while it seems to have loosened up - and yet no sign of stress marks - what is you folks experiences like with that part ?

Anyone think that they'll carry the Beast Hunter mold over to the Titans Return for Sargeant Kup? coz they've already carried two molds from a previous line into this one(Legends Shockwave...granted it's a Hastak release & CW Ultra Magnus...granted with some heavy retooling as PMOP)

Considering this line is heavily G1-based in design, I'd say there's zero chance of Kup not being a new mold based heavily on his original toy.
Also for Shockwave it's not really carrying over a previous mold if it's the first release of that mold by the company. Especially when the non-combiner CW molds like Ultra Magnus and Megatron are in the same line as the Titans Return figures in Japan.

I also take it they'll be reusing the existing Generations Cosmos mold too for this Legends Class one coming up? as they already reused this mold for CW Scrounge
