It looks like the 6 inch series of Titanium figures are making a come-back for the 25th Anniversary of the Transformers. Thanks to ACToys and S250, we see images for what appears to be Titanium Hot Zone, a repaint of Titanium War Within Optimus Prime, and a repaint of Starscream in to Titanium Thrust.
No idea when their release date is, but they appear to be Target exclusives.

Energon Shockblast looks good next to Henkei Megatron. If we ever see a Shocky in Universe, I'd love if he was around that same size.
Shockwave was only about the size of Megatron in the cartoon. This one would be about the right size next to Classics Megatron. Even though Megs is a Voyager, most of it is the wings on his back.
It depends on the character. Leader characters like Shockwave and Fort Max should be taller than your average deluxe. With Arcee and Cosmos, it doesn't matter much to me.
As to the inadequacy, neither of my wives had any complaints.
I am digging the RiD prime repaint. And I so CANNOT wait for thrust. Awesome find.
Bigger is better huh? Looks like someone has inadequacy issues
Foregone conclusion is forgone.
I bought a 6" Fort Max KO. It's also too small.
6" Titanium toys tend to be 6"…
I'd buy a Fortress Maximus 6" Titanium if they ever did one. Its just a representation, not indicative of the character's actual size.
Hot Zone is Hot Spot's new name since they can no longer use the name "Hot Spot" or obviously "Autobot Hot Spot" or some variation there of.
Who in the hell is Hotzone? anyway I'll buy HOTSPOT.
I have no need for that Shockwave, at least. He's too small.
Her animation model can't exist in the real world. Her bot mode is too lean and her car mode too bulky.
I would buy a classics version of her but that still isnt G1 .. I want a G1 Arcee and not something updated or close to it. That Titanium was the only chance we had for her.. Dunno why Hasblow has a problem with making her in every other form but G1 , They suck .. Can only take so many repaints. You would think it would dawn on them that they may sell better if they offered new molds and not the same crap painted a different color.
But won't the plastic components that hold all the metal parts together have crumbled away by then? Then all you have left is a bunch of antique robot limbs.
Actually, Hasbro did make them, but they're sitting in a locked factory in China.
At the next botcon Hasbro will show a few teasing pics.
Because, as we all know…

I'm just happy my Universe display will have Hot Spot and Thrust sometime soon, if these aren't hard to find that is. Maybe they will make a Dirge at one point since the Universe version is a lot bigger than the others being the Cybertron Voyager Starscream mold. Both the War Within Seeker and R.I.D. Optimus Prime molds are good so I can live with them. I will be skipping the Optimus Prime since I have two of that mold already.
I'd like to see them release the actual RiD mold repainted as Hot Spot.
Can that ever happen? Or are there legal issues from the cancelled Con exclusive?
Not me. I like my Titanium figures. They're for display, not to play with, and I think they look great!
I still want that Shockwave. Or at least a new one in Universe. I'm just not a fan of the Animated one.
They aren't actually made of Titanium.. They just call 'em that. It's just die-cast like any other metal toy.
Where's he gonna get metal for more bullets when the zombies come?
Being an Optimus Prime/Convoy fanatic (which means Hasbro usually treats me pretty well), this is EPIC WIN.
That being said, they still really need to release Cosmos.
