    Just an FYI to all board members, Target is doing their fall reset for Toys THE WEEK OF AUGUST 5TH. Ultimate Bumblebee will be featured on an endcap beginning that week as well.

    So I was browsing at the new planogram for boys action and saw something interesting. An item on the planogram has a DPCI of 087-06-0413 and the description in the line listing was "Transformers G1". Checked the DPCI and it isn't Jazz, could be Starscream. But get this, the picture on the product image (a mockup of how the aisle will look fully stocked) page shows a 6-inch titanium box!

    Could Titaniums make a brief comeback to Target shelves in early August? I will report back tomorrow morning after I do some more investigating at work tonight.

    EDIT: A quick search of the forums yielded this post by Nevermore http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showpost.php?p=584665&postcount=1. The DPCI matches the old on for the 6-inch Titanium figures. Keep in mind, DPCIs are recycled, but chances are good this DPCI is for 6-inch Titaniums

    Possibly just the G1 style repaints of several movie toys.

    Dark Magnus addressed that. It's not Jazz, but he says it might be Starscream.

    What's the price, DM?

    Is it the same size slot Titaniums have used before? Narrower than the Voyager G1 repaints?

    Didn't catch the price, and I could grab the measurement off the line listing at work tonight and let you guys know tomorrow morning. If the slot matches up with the size of Titanium boxe, this could be good VERY good news.

    Thanks. Even eyeballing it against the Voyager slot would be helpful. The trapezoid shape the Titanium box makes it stand out. I'm hopeful to get G1 Magnus and the rest that haven't hit B&M yet.

    My prediction -it IS a 6 inch Titanium.
    My second prediction -Hasbro will never actually ship it to Target, but Target will reserve shelf space for it.
    That seems to be the way of it for Titaniums.

    This scenario does not occur, as far as I'm aware. If it's ordered, Hasbro will ship it. Poor distribution is not Hasbro's fault.

    I really hope that they are the 6 inch tits again. I really need to finnish up that line. Although G1 reissues would also be nice.

    And the my closest target is about 3 minutes away.

    The line ended because retailers didn't want to carry them anymore. My guess is that there are leftover stock ( and probably lots of it ) and since they have a good relationship, Target will carry them til they run out. This could be my chance to get a G1 Magnus.

    As I said before DM, interesting news. Definently looking forward to this. Although, I'd say I'm looking more for WW Prowl, WW Grimlock & Soundblaster.

    ..yeah, I caved and bought the others through BBTS a looooooooooong time ago... :lol 

    Course, considering it says "Transformers G1" it's very possible it could be a Target exclusive G1 repaint of one (or more) of the 6 inch Titaniums. This strikes me as a possability given that only Soundwave and Scourge really fit into "G1" within the Titanium line. The others are largely War Within and random other generations.

    Still, either way, this is good news. :D

    It would be nice to see the 6" Titaniums back on store shelves. Maybe, I'll be able to find the elusive G1 Ultra Magnus figure. You never know.

    Well, I was trying to be funny.

    I live in the Dallas area and I hunt for Transformers and I never saw 75% of the line make it to the shelves, yet I did see the empty space reserved for the 6 inch Titaniums.
