As a part of the Titans Return line, we’re getting all four of the classic Generation 1 Headmasters in the Deluxe size class. Some commented on how we’ve already had a Voyager version of Brainstorm, when the news came that he too would get a new toy.
It seems the answer to that question is that in the US Brainstorm is going to be an exclusive. We already know that San Diego Comic Con 2016 is getting a set of three dubbed the “Titan Force”, which includes Brainstorm. Now, via an image on Steven G Anne’s Twitter page, we have a hint that a non-giftset, single carded Brainstorm could be headed to Walgreens as an exclusive.
For those unfamiliar, Steven G Anne is the one who is in charge of toy distribution for Walgreens. The image that was tweeted was talking about how Walgreens is to have a pair of exclusive Marvel Legends – but you can see a card back for an individually carded Brainstorm in the background.
Nothing else is officially known yet – and it is speculation on everyone’s part that this image leads to a Walgreens exclusive Brainstorm. Although the reaction when someone queried this also lends some weight to the argument, with the reaction being basically “whoops, didn’t realize that was in shot”. We will probably learn more when SDCC arrives in a few weeks time.
