Transformers Titans Return Arriving - Quick Rundown

LoudmouthToysIf you buy toys online, Titans Return Transformers Toys are shipping now. I got a batch of Titan Masters and Leaders over the weekend, and for you benefit I took the UPC from Terri-Bull around to find out what brick and mortar stores were charging. It did not scan at Kmart or Walmart, but Target's computers had them at $4.99. I'd say just order them online if you want some.

Since I'm early, I thought you might like some early impressions - FOTDs are of course in the works as of this writing. It does not appear the foot holes or foot pegs on the tiny toys are consistently sized, so be aware not everything is going to be compatible with everything else. (I'm looking at you, Buzzsaw.)

Powermaster Optimus Prime is a beast. The truck mode is fantastic, and while the cab looks similar to Ultra Magnus it's entirely new. The proportions are different, and there's a seat for Apex inside - plus lots of weapons. Robot mode is big and awesome, but the base mode is a bit of a bore. It does not connect easily to Blaster's base mode in the configuration provided by the instruction manual. I love it. If you want red eyes for your Powermaster Optimus Prime, buy Loudmouth. He does the job.

Blaster is a gem. Base mode is great - really great - and it makes a lot out of other 5mm toys if you have any. There are plenty of places to pose Titan Masters (sold separately) or plug in various weapons, so you'll have more fun with this one. You'd have more fun with rocket-firing parts or claws or something, but it looks nice on a shelf at least. It's just not much of a toy. Blaster's robot mode is nearly the exact size of the G1 original.

Nightbeat is the least interesting in the first wave of little $5 head sets. The head mode is based on Nightbeat's toy - but most people are more familiar with his comic book incarnation, which used Siren's toy as a model. The tiny robot is fine, the drill tank can change into a jet easily, but the problem comes from plugging in the head into the drill tank mode. You have to use excessive force to do what the instructions show, and that's going to be a bad first impression for a lot of fans on an otherwise good toy line. If you buy Nightbeat, open him last. The weapon mode is fun but requires the brute force merger.

Terri-Bull is a gem. The metallic blue plastic is very pretty, and the paint is generally good - the tank mode and jet mode are great. The small robot is the perfect driver for the tank, and he melts right in to the jet mode perfectly. If you buy only one, maybe it should be this one. The weapon mode is OK - the others are better.

Crashabash is a treat. The tiny dragon turns into a little t-rex, with the robot merging inside as the jaw and arms to the dinosaur. It's quite clever. The dragon is decent enough, and the gun mode is basically the t-rex mode with a couple of rotations. It's fun, I like it.

Loudmouth is also good - it has a little landspeeder that changes into a tank. The tank can be a gun. Everything seems to fit together well, with one of the best default vehicle modes and a pretty good alternate vehicle mode that reminds me of a tank from Revenge of the Sith a bit. The robot head is nice, and serves as a great alternate head for Powermaster Optimus Prime - granting him red eyes.

In short, I like what I've seen - I look forward to getting my deluxes and legends and talking about the Voyagers too! Here's a Galvatron gallery.
