Fellow Seibertronian StarblightSkylynx has a new Titans Return Titanmaster review for us today. Yesterday he had reviewed Crashbash and today it's Nightbeat. This toy makes it the second Generations Nightbeat toy released in 2 years time. The first was not a headmaster while this one is just a head. It is yet to be revealed if there will one day be a body to go with this head. If anyone has any questions about this new toy or other Titans Return products from the first wave, StarblightSkylynx is on our boards ready to answer.

I wish Nightbeat was more like Nightbeat, he doesn't have a visor and I wish he did.

In head mode if you move his arms out you can kinda give him his antennas.

:MAXIMAL:

Again, if you want a "proper" Nightbeat, just repaint Loudmouth. Remember that G1 Siren's and Nightbeat's heads are switched in-fiction? :)

The G1 toy didn't have a visor either.

Only reason he ended up with a visor in fiction is cuz somehow the character models for his and Siren's heads apparently ended up getting swapped between each other back in the day:

In case anyone missed this in the recent AJ's Toy Chest product update, their site has new images of the Wave 2 Titanmasters in cards as well as stock images of the products themselves. What we had before were just 3d renders of the new heads. You can find all these images below.
If you want more images of these wave 2 Titanmasters, we have an entire gallery of their appearance at Botcon 2016.
The second wave of Titanmasters includes:
Apeface
Clobber (aka Grimlock)
Brawn
Skythread (aka Flywheels)

Anyone else notice that Nightbeat's eyes were red on the final product?

I'm certainly into him. Then again, I'm into all but Brawn and Clobber...

As a toy, Brawn looks to be my favorite thus far, but as a character, I'd rather an '87-'88 character to go with the others (which is why Clobber looses out to Crashbash/Squeezeplay).

I'd be very tempted to pick this up... but (in all seriousiness) if i do... anyone want to swap (fortress?) heads?

I prefer the general retail titanmaster, but will gladly take more paint apps on Fort Max himself.


Are there more paint apps? I didnt see any more, just extra stickers.


Will the SRP be by a wide margin (aside from the availability) between the SDCC and retail? To entice Spikey and others to get this version.

Paint apps? Not necessarily more but the one on his chest seems to be new.




There appears to be new red on his upper thighs, I don't think those are stickers~

but what was the price difference on Devastator/Metro? I thought it was maybe ~$50? which to a degree... if you're dropping at least $120... what's a "little" extra? I regret not going with SDCC/Takara Metroplex... that chrome/silver really livened him up.

So Sky Tread is meant to be Flywheels.
Does that mean Clobber is supposed to be Grimlock?

General Retail. SDCC has the Cerebros head and Master Sword from The Headmasters.

Yeah that's true. Does the paint on the retail fortress maximus body match the American toon?

Anyone else reckon next year's May Mayhem could be a repainted Chromedome body with a repainted Loudmouth as Nightbeat?

I'm sure we'll get bodies for the heads at some point whether their released in the main line, as exclusives, or through third party companies. Or like you said during May Mayhem or something similar. Hasbro might also have the chance to release UW Blast Off next year during May mayhem

Hopefully Hasbro won't do blast off.
