    Mouse Droid's Coverage

    New things include I think the first look at packaged 3" TF Titanum figures, as well as the bio for WWI Optimus and a small pic of Titanum 6" Megatron. Here's a transcript of WWI Op's bio:

    Gravitas and the members of the Chamber of the Ancients have spoken. It has been determined that the fate of the Autobots wil rest upon the shoulders of an archivist named Optronix. Although Optronix is initially reluctant to accept this great responsibility, he begins to understand the devestating risks at stake for the entire Transformers race.

    Optronix is given the leadership name of Optimus Prime once the power of The Matrix is bestowed onto him. It is a sign that he must lead the Autobots away from Cybertron, not only to escape the war with the Decepticons, but also to escape the self-destrctive war that exists within them. After a colossal battle with Megatron that spans the boundaries of both time and space, Optimus discovers the power wihin himeslf to step up and provide the leadership his race needs in their most desperate hour.

    UNIQUE FEATURE: Inherited Matrix from the late Sentinal Prime.

    Neat. Also, I noticed that his tech specs are... brace yourselves... NOT all 10s.

    GASP! SHOCK AND AWE!

    Hehe, I guess it took the 7 million or so years to build up to all 10s in 1984. :)

    Well that certainly makes that Titanium 6" Megatron look a little better. But I still question the use of purple on him. Should be black instead.

    I don't know, "unique feature" might refer to a unique feature of the character, like Skywarp's teleportation. Frankly I don't see a place on the figure's chest that looks like it would open up. At least the mock-up shows Prime coming with a gun.

    And I'm a little ticked off that they're passing that Megs off as the War Within version.

    They didn't use Don's design for Megatron.

    Makes me wonder if this line will produce as much as Alternators.

    Hopefully a more evened out Autobot, Decepticon toys.

    The Cons are always losing the numbers game.

    Actually, I would say no. because I dont remember adding a compartment on him, seeing he's kinda small and all. but they could have made improvements, I dunno.

    Hey Don, this might be asking a bit much, but are there any hints you can throw us about upcoming War Within Titanium 6" figures besides Prime, Megs, Jetfire, and Thundercracker?
