More Transformers Titans Return - Wave 2 Impressions

LoudmouthTransformersIf you buy toys online, even more Titans Return Transformers Toys are shipping now. I got Wave 2 of Titan Masters in the mail last week, Voyagers are en route, and other stuff is starting to hit around town at stores, too. They're all lovely.

Click here to see Titan Masters Wave 2 images of the head modes on my Tumblr. It's worth it!

Clobber is Grimlock. He'll make you angry that the last proper G1 "Classics" Dinobot toy was arguably Grimlock Classics 2006. (Platinums, shmatinums.) It's a redecorated/retooled Crashbash.

Skytread is Flywheels - and boy howdy, is he great. The Terri-Bull mold got new colors and a new faceplate, but that face sculpt is WONDERFUL.

Also wonderful? Brawn. He looks gorgeous in person, but again, no unique body just yet. Customizers will no doubt make great use of these. His vehicle mode ain't bad, and the weapon mode is gnarly. I like it.

Rounding out the set is the fantastic Apeface. A little gorilla becomes a little jet, and the tiny robot ain't bad either. The gun mode ain't bad either.

If you want to see all the wave 1 head modes on bodies, click that link - also on Tumblr. You should follow me. After you do, be sure to compare US Nightbeat with Japanese Nightbeat and be very, very amazed with what they can do with paint over there.

Blurr is styled after the original toy quite nicely - his head Hyperfire is very much like the original Targetmaster Haywire. Other than the colors, the sculpted details are there. The "shield" can be worn as a backpack, the gun is nice, and I love the car mode with its tiny surprise wheels on the bottom. The coloring is very blue - very blue - but the figure itself is pretty sturdy and fun enough.

Skullcruncher is fun but isn't perfect. A big part of the green body is pink plastic painted (perfectly) green, so be aware of possibly scraping it. The trapdoor for the driver figure is a rubbery plastic, and it can be caved in upon purchase if you aren't careful. The hip joints on mine were a little loose, but it does stand and it's a ton of fun to transform - I love the arm articulation on the robot. I wish he had a little microphone. The head is strange, but that's the reason you've also got a Japanese release.

I also got G2 Bruticus, but we'll talk about him and probably the Voyagers in a few days.

New Games for the Xbox One

Xbox OnePrison Architect: Xbox One EditionXbox fans, it's time to try Prison Architect: Xbox One Edition. Microsoft says:

"In Prison Architect you will see the impact of your grand design on the lives of your inmates; be it a utopic center for rehabilitation, a brutal Super Max Prison or anything in between. Even when all of your prisoners' needs are met, remember one thing - it's still a prison and no one really wants to be there. Start your journey into the world of Prison Architect by playing through the Prison Stories (campaign). You'll quickly learn how to cope with blazing infernos, hostage situations and prison wide riots - if you make it through all that unscathed, the Mayor will be ready to give you the reigns of a brand new prison development where you can build the prison of your dreams."

Also available: The Banner Saga 2, Dynamite Fishing - World Games, and The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II.

More Transformers Titans Return Impressions

LoudmouthTransformersIf you buy toys online, even more Even More Titans Return Transformers Toys are shipping now. I got Wave 1 of Deluxe and Legends and Voyagers, so are here are seven more quickie reveiws. Also there was a fire and I am typing with one hand and a finger, so yeah. Fun. Many typos.

Click here to see Titan Masters Wave 2 images of the head modes on my Tumblr. It's worth it!

Rewind is the best of the first wave of Legends thanks to stability. Nice articulation, good weapon, beware of excess plastic in spots - I had to trim some. The labels on mine were pre-applid poorly, the manual hinted at one point the consumer would apply it. It fits in Blaster, but its lumpy form doesn't go in as easily as the slug iPod or Buzzsaw. The rolling tank wheels don't.

Stripes is... present. Weird design, wonky transformation, and a lumpy smart phone mode make it difficult to insert in Blaster. Jet mode is the best, but it seems all Titan Master compatibility - pegs and slots - was engineered out. Don't make it a priority.

Adequate with a good robot mode and unstable car is Wheelie. The tabs and slots fall apart easily, and I can't get a Titan Master to ride in the car seat without half-changing him to robot mode. Love the robot, nice deco, looks great with GDO Wheelie Slingshot. His wheels are clear smoke color.

Hardhead is better than I thought in most respects. For starters there's a bobble head connection between the Furos head and Hardhead socket. Scourge has the same issue. Otherwise, Hardhead has big arms, a nice transformation, and lots of places to seat or stand the little Titan Masters. On vehicle mode, he can easily carry 7 total - more than most other figures other than Fortress Maximus. It's neat, but not as good as Blurr. The head connector could use a fix.

Scourge is good, but strange. The shellformer aspects are mostly negated, and I love the compartment for Fracas in space boat mode. The coloring is a little bland in bot mode, but it is fantastic as a space vehicle. Surprise 5mm portholes can hold his new gun on the sides quite nicely.

Galvatron will satisfy the itch for an improvement over the 2008 version, but the mask and head alone will make you hope for a Leader or Masterpiece down the road. The jet mode is weird, but the cannon is adequate. Nice robot, but I expect a great many third party heads down the road. His shoulder pads get in the way of many poses, but you can probably get around this with patience and futzing.

G2 Bruticus is gorgeous. Bright, cheery, fits together nicely, and has botched Bruticus knee assembly. It also sports G1 symbols, but makes up for it with rich purple metallic paint and a colorful look you won't see elsewhere.

StatsGhostbustersVia FiveThirtyEight: ‘Ghostbusters’ Is A Perfect Example Of How Internet Movie Ratings Are Broken.

Numerous ratings of a movie unseen by the masses are an interesting thing to contemplate - I remember seeing numerous toys rated on a fan site years ago, several months before the first one shipped. Similarly people rate movies and TV they don't see and will never see, which is something you no doubt know by now. Some shows aren't for everybody - for example, I doubt anyone reading this was meant to like Dora the Explorer at their current age.

Captain Power Gets a Reboot

Remember Him? Of Course You Don't.SDCCVia CBR: 'Captain Power' Reboot Series in Development, Heading to SDCC.

Captain Power will be rechristened "Phoenix Rising". For those of you not old enough to remember, the TV show tied in to the toy line through interactive electronics. Toys should "shoot" the TV show, and the TV show could send signals so the toys would be "damaged." It was a really clever idea at what was basically the end of the 1980s toy/TV marriage, but it didn't last very long and few seem to remember it. It was, however, a thing that was heavily requested for a revival.

For those keeping track, most of the 1980s toy brands you remember are getting snapped up one way or another. Well, some are. Dino-Riders is supposedly optioned for a movie.

Aside from the previously-seen Liokaiser, Hasbro debuted Legends-class Gnaw and Bumblebee - both required updates for you - as well as Titan Masters Sawback and Overboard. The Walgreens-exclusive Brainstorm was shown (a toy-based redeco of the SDCC exclusive) as was Voyager-class triple changer Megatron. It looks like many of the non-exclusives are set for around January, with Brainstorm being either August or November - probably November. More from SDCC tomorrow!

More He-Man - Super7 "The Curse of the Three Terrors"

Fight!TransformersVia YouTube and presumably Super7: The Curse of the Three Terrors! This was sold at the show on VHS (really) and projected on a building in downtown San Diego, giving you about 10 new minutes of 1983-esque He-Man animation. Alan Oppenheimer - who voiced Skeletor and Mer-Man and others - is back to lend his pipes to some of his more famous evil warriors over 30 years after the show stopped getting new episodes.

The animation isn't quite the same as the original Filmation He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, but the old character designs are very similar and the new guys - of which toys were sold in San Diego - aren't bad. Give it a few minutes, it's a nifty tribute to a classic cartoon.

Cybertron Con Reveals Transformers Sixshot, Kickback
