There is now an auction for the upcoming Target exclusive Titanium Hot Zone up on eBay care of seller u-toys.

anything we have will be in the appropriate Resources section.
Thanks Ravenxl7 and Autobot Burnout.
Possibly Shockwave, if Hasbro is smart enough to finally make a Shockwave that turns into a gun to give to the collectors again. The rest are probably doomed to never see release, as the mini-bots all have legends toys now (except Cliffy, unless you count his Japanese repaint), and Arcee is in TF2. Also, almost all titaniums look good, but that's about it. The molds are usually horrible at staying together (UM comes to mind), and most should stay in the package.
Doubtfull, imo. They never did make it to the mold phase, so Hasbro would still need to put a good amount of money into them to produce them. They'd probably have to be wide releases to make up for that. It would be awesome for them to reuse the designs for all plastic toys, but that's even less likely.
While I still like the way Hot Zone/Spot looks, I probably won't get him. The only one I'm really going to try to get is Thrust. He'll be a great replacement for the kitbash I've been working on (the wings sort of, crumbled). Though I'm still hoping Hasbro releases their own versions of the molds they helped Takara with for the Henkei versions of Dirge and Thrust.
I was looking at whole Titanium line on this web site, I noticed a lot of real good figure's got canceled. Arcee, Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Cosmos, and Shockwave. Do you guy's think these figure's will actually get released this time around? I hope they do.
died at retail, continue as store exclusives.
thats expensive for a repaint.
Titaniums don't DIE, they MULTIPLIE
Oh come on! Titaniums ended, make up your mind Hasbro!
I saw this is person over the weekend for about US$37. Still not worth it. I only have 3 titaniums – WW Prime, Soundwave and the Fallen and they're all not very impressive.
I think the only other one I will spend cash on is Grimlock, who has since MIA-ed…
When will these three come out exactly?
I'm a huge fan of Hotspot (or Hotzone, if that's what we have to refer to him as these days) and Defensor. I really hope that Has/Tak will do a Classics version of the Protectobots (besides that Cyberton Evac repaint of Blades repaint …sometimes it boggles the mind to see how thoughtless Hasbro can be…)
Good repaint but I will never go back to collecting Titaniums.
Shipping's way too high for my wallet. I'll just wait for it to hit my local Target along with the others.
For no reason I can fathom Zellers stores do on occassion get Target exclusive Transformers. I've found "Deep Space" Movie Starscream, all those "All Spark" tube packaged Movie Deluxes, the Universe 2-packs and the Animated "Rescue Ratchet" and "Stealth Lockdown" all at Canadian Zellers stores.
Maybe the new company that bought Zellers and the Bay a few months back owns Target as well. I'm not sure why they show up there, but it makes me do my happy dance and thank the Gods of Plastic every time! Hopefully "G1" Animated Shockwave will be popping in soon.
awesome im a big fan of this line..i have all of them proudly displayed
any pics anywhere of the other up coming ones? any release dates?
I think i may pick this one up
There's a repaint of the seeker mold into Thrust and a repaint of WW Optimus in a more G1 style colorscheme, that's all we know of so far. I'm sure there will be morw though.
The only other ones we know of are WW Starscream decoed up again as Thrust and WW Prime in movie colors.
