Since we first learn about the Titans Return series in the Transformers Generations line, we have found, reported, and discussed over details on what’s to come. The chance to get your own hands on experience in May, 2016 has finally arrived as preorder for Leader class Wave 1, consisting of Blaster and Powermaster Optimus Prime, is open on site sponsor Big Bad Toy Store and TFSource. You can find the link to these preorders below, and we will update the link to the rest of our sponsors as their preorders become available.
If you haven’t seen our earlier report, Hasbro is indeed releasing the Deluxe Class Protectobot Groove individually. We reported that this figure might be obtain through a Toys’R’US promotion in Taiwan, but for those of you whose living else where, luckily you can preorder Groove now through Robot Kingdom, Premium Collectables, and our other sponsors as they become available. The figure is scheduled for release in May, 2016, but don’t wait until then.
Following the Toy Fair 2016 Investor Event, Hasbro has sent us the official Press Release announcing their presence at this year’s New York Toy Fair.
Unfortunately though, the official Fortress Maximus image they were suppose to send us is misplaced… and replaced with Transformers: Robots On Disguise Power Surge Optimus Prime. For the time being, visit our coverage of the event to check out the new Titans Return toy. We’ll check back and will provide you with the Hi-Res image soon.
Update: Fellow Staff Member Mechafire has noticed that the Power Surge Optimus Prime sent with the Press Release is a retool of the Warrior Class Optimus Prime rather than what was shown during the event.
Check out the full Press Release, after the jump.
P.S: We also included other Hasbro brands as well (Because we are cool. *wink*).
The other major news that came from Hasbro’s Toy Fair 2016 Investor Event is… well… Toys.

Finally for collectors, the Titans Return toyline was also shown:
- Sentinel Prime
- Fortress Maximus
Check out the images, after the jump.
With Toy Fair 2016 about to kick-off Hasbro has put up a preview for the upcoming Transformers Titans Return.
The Transformers Generations franchise offers us a sneak peek at the beginning of their “TITANS RETURN” product with these images of upcoming packaging artwork. There’s only so much room on a box or a blister card, so the scintillating character images developed by our artists sometimes gets maneuvered and cropped from the full glory of the original piece. The Hasbro Pulse has secured the full character artwork that will adorn the packaging for this July’s “TITANS RETURN” Deluxe Generations Wave 1.
Check out all the new Transformers Titans Return. images after the jump.
Coming to us from E-Hobby and Amiami, and spotted by eagle eyed TFW2005 members Type-R and PoweredConvoy, we have our first crystal clear images of UW-07 Bruticus and the rest of the Combaticons in all their cartoon glory. Of note, Blast Off seems to ditch his esoteric looking robot mode and actually looks good, now that we have clear images of him. In addition Vortex is also looking pretty cool as well while Swindle seems to lack any changes at all except for a three barreled blaster. As to if they fixed the waist issues with Brawl, that has yet to be seen, but we can hope! Take a look at the pics and join the dicussion gang!
Thanks to 2005 Board member vproject for posting his latest local finding in the Phillipines – Combiner Wars 2016 Wave 2 Deluxes and Voyagers! This wave will feature a second set of “Classic Generation 1” Autobots, which will include Smokescreen, Wheeljack, Hound and Trailbreaker. The Voyager assortment that is shown with this sighting is only of the single new mold in the entire wave, Sky Lynx. For those curious, vproject did spot the Onslaught in this wave. However, those hoping for a brown/cartoon accurate Bruticus chest may be disappointed as this sighting featured a silver version. However, take that as a grain of salt. We’ll see as the wave reaches worldwide saturation.
Hopefully this sighting indicates a US release within the next couple of weeks. Join the discussion after the jump.
