    Dr. Wu breaks his long silence with an accessory for Titan's Return Alpha Trion! Can be can be slung in the back, according to the good Doctor.Seems to be based on the Alpha Trion Concept Art By Emiliano Santalucia. Also, this invokes the old Alex Milne Dreamwave Energon Alpha Trion staff, if you ask me.

    Seems many board members are speculating Takara is gonna skip Alpha Trion... I'm curious what they will do as well... The Hasbro color scheme is just okay.

    Sure, as long as it's not terribly expensive (like $15 at the most). Even if it doesn't work for Alpha Trion, I'm sure it'd be a cool accessory for someone.

    This looks great and I'm glad Dr. Wu is back, but is it wrong that my first thought of seeing a Dr. Wu reveal was, "How 'bout dat CW Mixmaster"?

    Would definitely buy that staff. Would also love them to do the sword as well, which looks much more majestic in the concept art than the final product.

    This toy is kinda unappealing, but the staff to use with another version would be cool

    So is he actually making the staff or is this just to gauge interest?

    I wonder if the staff would add balance to the carrier mode if placed on the other side from the sword - is the second hook on the support to take the sword incidentally ?

    Has anyone made him a cape yet ?

    The back hook looks to be a repack of the one included with the scythe dr wu released during thrilling 30, the scythe split in two to mount on the back. Since this staff comes with that mount I imagine A. It splits in two to get it into Trions hands
    B. You can back mount it in the seperate pieces for a cleaner profile

    As soon as I saw the artwork, I was hoping a 3P would come up with the staff.
