    This thought dawned on me the other day; since the Titanium line (namely the 6" series) is utilizing non-mainline figures (War Within, whatever that Megatron figure is from, etc.) whats the likelyhood of finally seeing a proper Jhiaxus figure in this line? Seems like this line would be perfect for picking up obscure characters like that. For the 6" line, I wouldn't imagine it'd be too hard to design a working transformation for him; just do a very stylized version of a typical jet transformation that they've used dozens of times already (accomodate for the huge head, give him those "bat' looking wings, etc.)
    What do you guys think?

    Yeah that would be sweet....plus one of those jets that separate into two separate robot modes so Jhiaxus could have someone to order around would rock too:D

    Thing is, we've been very vocal in asking Hasbro for for WWI figures since that comic came out. Jhaxius however has had his day long past and doesn't have nearly as much fan buzz.

    Myself I would LOVE to see him in the line, but I don't know if Hasbro has that long a memory. I feer he wouldn't even occur to them.


    -ZacWilliam, who would also love Straxus while we're at it.

    Who knows? We're getting Megatron (from god knows where), Optimus Prime (WWI), Jetfire (WWI), Thundercracker (WWI), Optimal Optimus (BW) and Scourge (from who knows)... I don't think an actual Jhiaxus would be too far fetched, but I agree that Hasbro might not have that kind of memory. However, if someone were to mention it to Archer and Co. at the next Botcon in September... it might have a chance. :thumbs2:

    The Megatron is a new design due to the WW design being unfeasible for some reason. Don said so himself (the first half, certainly, the second was a tad implied).

    Really curious about the Scourge, though. I'm betting on RID, but G1 is probably a close contender.

    I'm almost certain that in that same thread later on, Don confirmed that Scourge would be a much improved version of the original from the Movie, but I COULD be mistaken.

    We've already had a Jhiaxus toy - the Universe repaint of BM Jetstorm. :) 

    But I agree, I would like to see him as a 6" Titanium.

    There are a lot of toys I'd rather see done first. WWI/MTMTE Bumblebee, for one. Good idea, but the Jhiaxus character is too obscure.

    I would dig on seeing a good Jhiaxus figure, the universe release was weak IMO.

    BW OpOP? Random line Scourge? I never heard of these releases before today. Both would be cool, espescially if they released a G1 Scourge (someone else mentioned some vague confirmation from DON that it was indeed G1), and I never got an OpOP before!. Toygasms for Titaniums!

    OpOp & Scourge were confirmed by one of the online vendors (the one from Australia... can't remember the name right now). Basically, the current line up for the 6' line is this:

    wave 1: WW Optimus Prime & New design Megatron
    wave 2: BW OpOp & Unannounced Scourge
    wave 3: WW Jetfire & WW Thundercracker

    With all the diversity already unoficially announced for this line... I don't see why we couldn't get alot of various characters that we've never had designs for before now. Jhiaxus, Alpha Trion, Arcee... anyone that never recieved a propper toy. My personal desire currently is for them to release Scourge as his G1 self and than for them to do a shuw accurate Cyclonus & Galvatron. That would be sweet!

    I just wanna see more G1 figures that the Neo-G1 line misses. A full G1 remake between the two lines would be awesome!!!

    I'd like a titanium combiner. An updated Menasor, perhaps.
