They were never confirmed to be coming out in power of the primes. It was all speculation.

Why don't they have Windblades? Just because she's not from G1? :-?

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?

I don't get what you mean by:
[...]isn't that thing behing him Arcee's leg?

And you can see on UM's card that he has a blue face on his back. That's definitely his face and not Arcee's besides it wouldn't make any sence to give him Arcee's face ;)

No. Because windblade was so popular in Asia she sold out the first 15 minutes! :lol:

Cant wait to see her next figure in power of the primes and maybe she will make the bumblebee movie too! :-D

Starting with AoE, the movie bots are much more "classic" looking, going away from the alien/monster look of '07 and ROTF. So I'm actually looking forward to what a Movie Windblade would look like. :-?

That we have to wait up to 4 more years just to complete teams like the headmaster juniors and most likely the monsterbots with the way things are going? And I guess we can kiss Scorponok and Omega goodbye for the time being too.

I don't know. They keep saying that they listen to what the fans say but then they keep proving that they don't. They must only read the posts of people praising the stuff they put out and not the negative or criticizing ones. And I hate to say it but all this stuff is just pushing me closer and closer to giving up on Hasbro all together and just going full Takara.


While I understand and share your frustration, I dont see how going Takara would change your situation. It took them even more time to get the insecticons and they still didnt colour match them, plus we were stuck with some TAV stickers on em. Just one example, of course, but I dont feel you will be better off.
And yes, you would have to wait 4 more years from hasbro to get the stuff that we are missing, but didnt it take us 3 years to get all the insecticons? Its not like waiting around is something new to do. Its been 11 years since CHUG began and we still dont have a decent Ironhide toy from Hasbro.

All that Hasbro said is that they are on the line's roadmap from now to 2021. They could come at anytime within that period.

Lunatic Prime wrote:Why don't they have Windblades? Just because she's not from G1? :-?

I think the wording may be confusing, the user just meant that he didnt find windblade, meaning she was already sold out.

JelZe GoldRabbit wrote:There's no precedent for regular retail releases being repurposed as convention items.

Untrue, CW Reflector was a regular retail release that was repurposed as a convention item. Hence why his headsculpt looks more like something that comes from hasbro rather than fun pub. He was the intended second use of the Shockwave mold.

Deadput wrote: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?

Hasbro confirmed that there are currently plans for the generations line to continue until at least 2021.

You know what, for those unaware, I will just put the interview here, we got some juicy info:

Can you tell us about the other two Titans Return box sets which we have not seen yet?

Sure, as fans have noticed, the sets are centered around the four different powers/tech specs and only two of those powers are getting the boxset treatment. We will not be releasing the other remaining powers as box sets of the same kinds but there will be unique offerings that will allow fans to have a representation of the two remaining powers. It will be exciting news shared later so stay tuned (Editor's note: this is probably what the recent Arcee and Ultra Magnus leaks are about and would explain why they are a different format than what we have previously seen since the remaining powers would not be done in the same way as the boxsets)


Will there be other toys in the Slugslinger wave?

Yes but they will all be repackaged characters. I do not remember which characters are repackaged however Slugslinger is the only new character in that wave and the final new toy from the Titans Return line (Editor’s note: this might be a response to the frequent practice of retailers not ordering/stocking the final waves of figures as was the case with Combiner Wars)


Why not wait for this Prime evolution gimmick to release Power Master Prime?

That's an excellent question. The idea we have in Power of the Primes line is that they evolve up so he would have been a good fit. But in the year Titans Return we wanted to make sure we had a big version of Optimus Prime and there's only so many big cool versions of the character so as we were looking at the Titans Return ecosystem we weren't even thinking of that evolution system yet which only came to real form a year ago and by that time Power Master Prime was already finished.

Any plans for God bomber in the US?

God Bomber, there are no plans for God Bomber to come to the US at this time. All that is planned is that Magnus Prime in the Seige of Cybertron set.

Anything with Omega Supreme or Scorponok which were also into fan vote since you know we like those guys?

Well the fan polls are really awesome for us because they let us engage with the fans and see what they're excited about. When we look to 2021 and all the possibilities we now have with the technology, absolutely. Characters like Omega Supreme and Scorponok are some of the most memorable characters in The Transformers universe and in the spirit of imagining things that are cool and giving them a new light they are totally on the table.

I think this is another new box set with 1 Titanmaster (Magnus here), 1 Legends, 1 Deluxe (Arcee), 1 Voyager (the green bot Arcee is leaping over) and 1 Leader (the big leg behind Magnus). The art on both cards could simply be from the entire box art. That explosion on both cards could be one and the same explosion, so Magnus is rinnung somewhere in the middle, Arcee jumping away to the right, over a Green bot, with the Leader on the left and somewhere another Legends bot.

I'm glad we got the latest wave to hunt down in stores! I'll see if I get lucky at Target.....

I have one incarnation of Windblade, but I need that TR version. For DAT IDW FACE.

I wish we could see a shelf stocked like that, here in the States! Last time I was in Asia, I didn't have any time to hunt :(

Ok, I'll give you CW Reflector. He was never leaked or even hinted towards I believe, which may indicate he was scrapped early enough to prevent it, but the head was kept "just in case". Not really the case with this Arcee and Ultra Magnus, is it?

The art for the cards may have come from the original box set art, yes, just "snipped up".

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.
Y'know, I'm honestly not too upset about this. While it sure is disappointing that TR is ending, it just gives me some time to save up money for POTP.

Speaking as somebody who got into TR late in the game, I'm happy for the reissues in this last wave. And for the reissues in the preceding wave.

Wolfwire very likely won't be re-issued in Wave 6, as he just got re-issued in Wave 5.

I'm hoping that we might see more T30 re-issues. Then again, if we were, I get the feeling that would have been announced or at least Warden would have remembered and mentioned it. Or maybe that's our last 'surprise'.

That said, while an all-rerelease-but-slugslinger wave is very disappointing news, I must admit to being extremely interested as to which figures they'll put out. This is their chance to give us a sort of "greatest hits of Titans Return" Wave aside from those featured in the one directly previous. I don't think we ever got re-issues on this wide a scale so I'm actually getting more excited at the prospect.

On the plus side, this should prevent any major occurrences of "Tail-Ender Syndrome", in which newer toys at the end of a given line end up impossible to find.
