The word from Hasbro is that Slugslinger is the final toy from Titans Return to be revealed with the rest being repackaged figures. What would that mean for other classes though, how would that be handled and which repackaged figures would we be getting? Well, a lising on Entertainment Earth reveals that the Christmas restock for Voyagers will consist of a case of Titans Return Optimus Prime and Octone. This is an easy way to have the most popular Transformers character on the shelves around the Holiday shopping season. Another repack wave consisting of Titans Return Megatron and Broadside will be part of the back to school restock.

Two of the same mold as the only ones in a wave. That's... an interesting decision.

I find it somewhat hilarious that the TR Optimus Prime Voyager and the TR Octone retool are selling together. Mold mates for the win I guess. XD

I agree with Twintwist, he looks awesome! And my love for the Wreckers makes him an instant buy anyway. Plus the mold is fantastic

There goes that unrealistic glimmer of hope that we might still get Apeface and Snapdragon to send off this line. Well, at least my wallet will be happy to recoup before PotP starts.

Reminds me of when Generations FOC had a wave of just Soundwave and Soundblaster.

Sheesh....if there gonna waste infinte plastic, cant they just make the blitzwing in brown and magenta and give is flywheels? They already got the head. Same color scheme just swap the beige with brown and magenta with purple. No extra money spent. Hasbro is stupid. Really... :BANG_HEAD:

Yay I might have a chance at actually getting Megatron now!

That's not really how that works...plus if they were going to make him then he wouldn't have been considered for the purposed Botcon 2017

Maybe they think it wouldnt sell as well as the most popular triple changers and the two faction leaders.

Plus, it actually would be extra money spent since (parts of) Titan Masters are gang-molded with (parts of) whoever they come with, in this case Skytread with his drone and Megatron/Blitzwing with Doomshot/Hazard. In other words, they can not be freely switched out at the same expense. TakaraTomy and FunPub may be willing to go that route, but not Hasbro.

Given we're probably getting a "proper" Flywheels for PotP (we're certainly getting a Battletrap) I'd say a Blitzwing-into-Flywheels would be totally redundant.

Myself I'm just salty we aren't getting Blitzwing's other two faces. I mean yeah there's Shapeways but it's still a missed opportunity.

Not to mention money spent on design and colour layouts. You still have to pay people to do those no matter how small a job -- a re-issue, no matter how little differences it might have from a possible redeco, will cost less.

And if I was hasbro and would like to do flywheels with a TR remold, I would use Skyshadow's base mold, more logical.

The Original Blitzwing only had one face.

The original Blitzwing wasnt a headmaster.

I don't mind if they make a small POTP one but a TR Blitzwing/Flywheels is something I do not object to at all. It would at least slightly complement the botcon toy (though the T30 one would have been a better match)

The idea of TR version is possibly a better match for a Battle Trap based on an as yet unmade Voyager Springer with some sort of implemented gimmick to him.

I don't really see an issue with them issuing a Flywheels in another giftset anyway or even using a TR mould or a mould variation in the main Voyager POTP line - I don't think all Voyagers need to be Secret Combiner Torso - they could just as easily have some other line gimmick implemented in them.. even something as simple as a bit of armour.

I don't even really need him to have a new face either -though the extra effort would be appreciated.

Size alone would make a Voyager Flywheel useful to me. But it being an upgrade to the platinum Blitzwing would be an added bonus too.

Obviously, but there is a running theme in TR. What would be the purpose of 3 faces on Blitzwing?

To add in traits from other universes. It wouldn't even be like T30 where the gimmick, arguably, actively harmed the toy. This would just be taking advantage of a gimmick that's already there for other reasons to give fans of Animated a very cool feature through the Titan Master class. I know it's the only thing that'd convince me to get Blitzwing.

No, that's ok, they tried to muck things up with Armada Megatron, and Tidal Wave, we don't need any more of that, at least until PotP is over. After that great, go wild! I'll be done collecting for a while at that point, I'm thinking.

If some fans want a new Animated Blitzwing, that's great, just wait for the next toyline to capitalize on TFA nostalgia, no need to pollute TR.

I don't really see any reason to wait.
