As TFCon Chicago gets so very close, and NYCC is just around the corner, we'll keep on getting Transformers: Robots in Disguise news. Today, it's the auctions of a China-based eBay seller, jet_tang_2000, who appears to have prototypes for the series' iteration of the non-transforming Titans. The three figures available, show off three headsculpts and body variations: Bumblebee, Qui-Gonn Optimus Prime and a new head dubbed Galvatron by the seller - though it looks a lot like that wolfish character in the trailer. Check them out below!

You know who the wolf Con is reminding me of (at least face-wise)? This guy:

Megatron? :lol:

By the by, that "Wolf-Con" may be connected to that wolf-like insignia we saw on a slide for a Hasbro presentation.

Dear, those are prototypes what you normally call the "shampoo bottles", they're not the main line figures. I'm still surprised they're keeping the Titan lines alive...

With various sources now making hay about the upcoming RiD figures, I guess this means the movie toy hullabaloo is really winding down. We may well see the movie stuff on clearance soon. As I anticipated, most of the movie4 stuff wound up warming the shelf, big time. I'll soon be seeing Grimlock figures for $5 at Ross or TJ Maxx.

Still won't buy them. Stick it, Bay. Your 'reboot' was more like a rePOOP. What does it say about you as a writer/director/producer, when CHILDREN's shows have better writing and stories than your movies?

And I found the Classics Prime/Evasion Prime G1 2-pack at TRU. What a disappointment. Not in the evasion figure itself, it's a fine mold (it's the ONLY movie4 toy I have), but I was told there was going to be a face mask head-sculpt for Evasion Prime - which would have made it worth buying again. But it was just the normal face movie sculpt with shinier paint. That's just LAZY. It had chrome covered bits (they both did), but without a face plate sculpt... well why did they say there was going to be one in the first place if they didn't mean it?

these stupid things fill up the toy shelves. I hate them. They are such a let down. I'm not one to rail against toys for kids but I think non-transformable transformers are not the way to go...

The simple one steps are alright, but this stuff and those sparkler AoE toys just take up shelf space.

I hate non-transforming TFs too, but I'm pretty sure Hasbro (and their licensees) have been making non-transforming TF toys since the 80's, and it hasn't ruined the franchise yet, so I don't see what the big deal is. What about those stupid "drone" figures that were unpainted and had no articulation? Collectors still buy those on eBay. Or go check out the prices on MISB Action Masters. I bet you in 20 years, collectors will be paying top-dollar for these Titan figures.

"Galvatron" here appears to be missing the top half of his head. Eyes should be exactly midway in the face. >:oP

I hope the more high-end versions of the character has better proportions. I don't think anything bothers me more. (Thinking especially of figures with misplaced waists, too short legs, etc.)

I agree with your sentiment that non-Transforming toys have been around for a long time (Action Masters, Pretender shells, etc). However, I see those more as the best that could be done or as playing with gimmicks. Also, they (aside from some AMs) were all original characters, not simplified versions of ones that already had toys that did transform.

Again, not trying to start anything, just a conversation about why people are reacting the way they do at all these Titans. Personally, I think it's because, aside from one-step-changers and that deluxe BB, this is all we've seen of the RID line, and it's not very impressing to lead with simplified versions instead of the main line. That, and we've seen these types become shelf warmers twice now (Prime and AOE), and have no reason to think it won't keep happening.

why is habro keeping this subline? Its clogging shelves now and thats not going to change at all when RiD comes out. Im sure hasbro thinks they're saving money by making nontransforming figures but in the long run their just hurting themselves. On another note im interested in this wolf looking character, not this toy just the character in general.

Can we just keep this thread as a thread about this one figure? Do we really need to combine all discussions of the entire RID line into one thread? That's really annoying.

I cannot guarantee that, right now. From a posting news point of view, this is much easier - from a reading point, I agree that it can be very disruptive. The staff are discussing better ways of finding a compromise, and will take on any suggestions sent to forums@seibertron.com! :D

IIRC, it's because the Titan Heroes/Guardians/etc. are actually a success over in parts of the world like China and such. So as long as there's some markets for these to profit off of, Hasbro's gonna keep making them.

If that's the case I don't really see it here. Hopefully with the recent price cuts they'll start moving a bit.

Why produce them for markets they don't sell in, then? Why not just make them available in the places where they're popular? Or are people buying them stateside too?
