    Well, if you shout loud enough I guess anything is possible.


    Non-snarky answer = No. The line didn't do well enough for Hasbro, which is why the killed it. I actually quite liked the Titaniums after the first wave.

    No. Other than the remaining few figures, maybe some exclusives, that's about it for the Titanium line. I think it did well, for what it was. I'm surprised that it lated as long as it did.

    I really want a SkyWRAP too. Cling film Transformers have been terribly neglected.

    There's always a chance. It's just a very slim chance. :)  Hasbro canned the line in favor of more Classics, which was probably a good decision. Skywarp could theoretically show up as an exclusive of some kind at some point... but after the poor performance of SDCC Menasor, I doubt they'll be scrambling to release any more exclusive Titaniums.

    If having an incomplete trio of Seekers is keeping you up at night, there is always kitbashing. Or commissioned kitbashing.

    Skywarp would tell A LOT better than Menasor.

    There's that 2/3 KO seeker Skywrap, but otherwise I'm not aware of others. A G1 Titanium Seeker would be kinda cool, I guess...

    :lol  I didn't catch it.
    Mate, long time no see! (sorry if you've been posting in other forums)

    On topic, Skywarp would have been nice, but seeing Starscream in person I doubt if I'd pick it up even if Hasbro releases Skywarp. I understand the need :)

    WOW SOMEHOW HE TURNS OFF CAPS LOCK LONG ENOUGH TO LEAVE THE REST OF HIS post in caps I AM AMAZED.

    I'd imagine the line is DEAD. Entirely based on the shoddy construction and terrible pricepoint ($10 for a deluxe with play value, or $15 for a metal deluxe-sized statue? I pick option one) I would REALLY like to see Prowl or Grimlock (and Shockwave) but I really doubt we'll see them.

    I completely agree. And, let's be honest, these things weren't even deluxe sized. I own a few of the 6" Tits, but I for one am glad that the line went away. Most of these toys just did not have anything beyond somewhat of a cool factor due to the inclusion of die-cast in the molds, IMO.

    *Waves back.*



    The somewhat annoying thing is that if they'd decided to release Skywarp before Sunstorm, then it would be Sunstorm who got the chop. Whilst there would be people who want Skywarp and Sunstorm.... demand for Skywarp is probably higher.

    I'm obligated to ask: what's the status on Titanium Prowl, Grimlock, shockwave, & Cosmos? Are there plans to recycle those molds into Classics or something?

    Would be cool, but I doubt it. Those molds (well, at least Grimlock and Prowl) were based on the War Within characters, and wouldn't really fit into modern classics-type vehicles. Would be really cool to have a classics WW Grimlock though.
