    Allspark is having a running commentary from the Hasbro Tour going on today. Notable are the revelation of:
    a prototype for a G1 Optimus Prime helmet toy
    Prototypes for Titanium figures (6") for Arcee, Cosmos, Cybertron bumblebee, G1 Shockwave (and the indication that they won't be released)
    "Expanded Universe" movie toys (possibly named "Power of the Allspark)
    Images of a V-22 Osprey Decepticon and Blackout retooled to Evac (with liferaft instead of Scorponok, images on page 2)
    Toon styled MP Starscream confirmed for US release exclusive at Walmart for around $50

    Ah, very nice. Too bad those titaniums will never see the light of day... does that mean the 6inch line is dead or that those particular prototypes will never be made?

    Really digging that Osprey and the Evac retool is just a thing of beauty!

    I have to have that V-22 Osprey Decepticon!!! He'll go great w/ Blackout :D 

    EDIT: Not sure if I like Evac yet, and I'd love to see those prototypes of the 6" titaniums as well

    If I'm reading the thread right we will never get those Arcee, Cosmos, Cybertron bumblebee, G1 Shockwave, this annoys me to no end

    damnit, the only reason people didnt buy the 6" Titaniums was because Hasbro refused to ship them to stores.
    Hopefully pics will turn up of the prototypes soon, then we can see what we missed out on.

    *Sigh* why kill a line when its approaching its high point, Also, hopefully the tour guys get some good answers, not "cus we felt it went as far as it should".

    First the Seacons, now this.... *Sigh*. Surely if the molds have already been made they will lose more money by not releasing them, and having expensive prototypes going unused.

    You know, I wouldn't be surprised if the whole Titanium line as a whole is being axed.

    I'll bet retailers didn't bring them in much because they weren't selling the larger ones in other lines. I've seen many an unsold Star Wars or Marvel Titanium.

    Hasbro just doesn't know what kind of boys toy will sell. It wasn't the TF 6' inch that killed titaniums it was the Marvel and Star Wars Tits that don't sell worth a damn. I seriously question the judgement of people running a toy company when they don't klnow themselves what toys seem like a good bet and what toys are gonna be stinkers.

    No, it's because the first wave sold so piss poorly, stores refused to put later waves on shelves. Same result though.

    Can't wait for MP Starscream, and that Osprey looks abso-fucking-lutely awesome. Purchased on sight. Not digging Evac at all.
