Amazon have updated with a listing for the third Classics-style Monsterbot, Repugnus. We’d known he was in the works since retailer leaks earlier this year, and now we’ve got some new information, which confirms Repugnus is going to be a Deluxe class figure celebrating the Titans Return segment of the Prime Wars trilogy, that his Titan Master is going to be named Dastard, and that he’ll come with a special edition packaging and a special edition Prime Master, Solus Prime this time. There’s still no images, regrettably.
Key information straight from the listing page is as follows (bolded text is our emphasis):
- Special Edition Titans Return Repugnus and Titan Master Dastard
- Features a Deluxe Class Repugnus figure with premium deco
- Also comes with a special edition Prime Master figure, Solus Prime
- Comes in special edition packaging; celebrate the Prime Wars Trilogy with this collectible set
- Includes Deluxe Class Repugnus figure, Titan Master Dastard figure, special edition Solus Prime Prime Master figure, 2 accessories, and instructions. Ages 8 and up.
What this confirms is that, yes, we’re getting a Deluxe class Repugnus to go with the Deluxe class Twinferno and Grotusque from last year, and that all three will be Headmasters. We’ve got further confirmation that there will be special edition figures who will celebrate the Prime Wars trilogy and that these will come with Prime Masters, with the previously leaked Blast Off with Megatronus will be celebrating the Combiner Wars part of the trilogy, and presumably the mooted Counterpunch figure will be the Power of the Primes representative.
Questions remain, of course. Will Dastard be another Battle Beast homage? Is Dastard one of the coolest Transformers names of 2018? Why are the special edition Prime Masters re-releases / retools of Prime Masters released in the main line, and not the three characters represented on the cards and not yet released as toys? When will we get pics? When can we buy him?
