    During the Hasbro tour (very awesome, btw), we were shown a display case full of what Eric Siebenaler termed 'things you'll never see.' Among them were four of the five 6inch TS listings previously dug up in Wal-Mart's systems by Shawn Tessmann: grey protos of G1 Arcee, G1 Shockwave, Classics Cosmos, and Cybertronian/War Within Bumblebee (which had on the shelf next to him a Cliffjumper head, so you can tell where THAT was headed). Eric said those will NOT BE RELEASED, and that items like War Within Prowl wold be the end of the road for the six-inch TS Transformers.

    (/cries uncontrollably at the mention of 'no Tww BB)

    Another little tidbit: G1 Masterpiece Starscream will be a Wal-Mart exclusive, from another presenter whose nam escapes me at the moment. He initially said TRU, but corrected himself, so if you see someone else say 'nuh-uh, it's a TRU exclusive'--that's why.

    (/still crying)

    Damn, a Titanium Shockwave and Cosmos would have been awesome. Why weren't they put out earlier instead of some of the junk that did get put out? Shame.

    So... because they refused to stock it they killed the line. Damn. That makes me sad. And just when we were on the threash hold of actually recieving a G1 styled Arcee. This, just makes me sad... :cry 

    So, did they give any reason or did they just say "Sorry, we're not moving forward and it's dead".

    I'm not too disappointed. The Titanium line was pretty hit and miss. I would have loved to see those five be made though, especially Shockwave and Arcee.

    Man we are never going to get a G1 Arcee. War Within BB would have been cool too. He was one of my favorite WWi designs. :(

    From the pics you'll no doubt be able to scope via someone's sooper spiidy laptop, the pieces were all in robot mode, and had pics of both modes placed in front of each figure. Shockwave's gun 'hand points out from th gun mode barrel. Arcee had that narrow rear spoiler that's probably the most noticeable part of her vehicle mode. Cosmos's UFO mode was...spiky. :)  And....sniff.....Bumblebee was just SO CUUUUTTE!!!!
