Titans return doesn't miss a beat. With people finally getting their hands on the wave 4 toys, we now have reviews of the wave 5 toys coming in since they were released in the Philippines. For now we have a review of Titans Return Octone but we are sure we will see reviews of others shortly. The reviewer does a good job of pointing out what has changed from the Optimus Prime use of this voyager mold.

Enjoy!

I can't wait to see what Takara does with Blitzing.

My first guess was taht they would give him purple forearms so he would be show accurate but then I realized that it would make for one weird looking tank.

At the very least, they'll give him a silver face instead of purple. They'll probably get the gun barrel on the tank the right color too. Otherwise, there's not too much to be done, except for the forearms, as you mentioned. Oh, and lest we forget, NO STICKERS!

They might just paint the "inner" surface (the top in robot mode) of his forearms... not that it'd look fantastic on the robot, but it wouldn't mess with the tank mode's color scheme that way. Though it might look a little strange in jet mode too (or maybe it'd fit better with the jet's colors that way :-? ).

I found something on Blitzwing face why he was purple

Maybe because of this design?

It's because the original G1 toy had a purple face, which that art (likely Dreamwave) seems to be going off of. Bar the occasional MTMTE or Cartoon reference here or there in the facesculpts (or of course, the cases of retools/repaints) you'll notice a lot of Titans Return and Combiner Wars are heavily modeled after the G1 toys over most other media, in terms of both mold and paint.

It's Guido Guidi's cover art for the RI-C cover of Infiltration #3, and which was later recycled for The Transformers Classics, Vol. 6.

Another day, another review! Youtuber Chefatron is at it once again, giving us a video review of the upcoming Titans Return voyager class Blitzwing with Hazard! Blitzwing is a slight retool of Megatron, triple changing from a tank to a jet and then to a robot! He also features a gun and a sword. You can check out the review below and let us know what you think of him in the comments section below!

He looks a LOT better than previous looks at him had led me to believe. Not entirely sure how much of a fan I am of a purple that deep, but nevertheless its a good look.

I like the deep purple on the body, but it's a bit much for his face. It seems to wash out all of the sculpting detail. I know the purple face is G1 toy accurate, which is Hasbro's bag, but I think in this case, going for a gray or silver face would have worked a lot better. It would help the face stand out and compliment and contrast the purple elsewhere on the figure instead of kind of getting lost in it all. Here's hoping Takara can work their screen accurate magic on the presumed Legends release.

I think he fits in well personally.
Plus the "insect" he turns into is a skinnier bug then the other two so it fits plus Kickback is the agile one.

the reason for the tail fin splitting in half is so it goes flat against the robot modes back
