    New listings for TRANSFORMERS TITANIUM SERIES figures have show up. Funny thing is were we not told this line was finished? Well anyway here are the new figure listings.

    TRANSFORMERS TITANIUM SERIES: The War Within NEMESIS PRIME:
    War gives rise to all sorts of crazy rumors, especially a war as destructive as the civil war raging on CYBERTRON. That's how NEMESIS PRIME started out – as a wartime rumor. No one wanted to believe in a ghostly warrior every bit as powerful as Optimus Prime

    TRANSFORMERS TITANIUM SERIES: Die-Cast PRIMAL PRIME:
    Constructed by the alien Vok of the detritus left in the wake of the BEAST WARS, PRIMAL PRIME is a leader born. Powered by the cosmic energies of the aliens that created him, and bonded throughout with the rarified energies of the Matrix itself!


    TRANSFORMERS VOYAGER FIRST STRIKE OPTIMUS PRIME

    No Images yet of these 3 we will keep you posted as they become available.

    Primal Prime, Soundblaster, WW Grimlock , and WW Prowl were still in the pipeline. Isn't First Strike Prime the GEEWUN repaint that's coming later?

    First Strike Optimus Prime is the G1-style repaint of the Voyager figure, part of the Allspark sub-line, as seen at Hasbro's Comi-Con panel. With all the other Allspark Power listings seen elsewhere, it's little surprise that we'd hear something about him.

    Primal Prime is not a huge surprise, but Nemesis Prime? Whose bright idea was it to give us the WW Prime mold a third time, and of him of all things?

    Yeah, I remember the G1 voyager Prime being called First Strike.

    Anyway, very cool that the Titaniums are going to continue. Maybe if they can do one like Nemesis who was unannounced they can finally give us Skywarp. Now, here's my question... which Optimus got the repaint? We already got a War Within repaint... an RID Nemesis would be awesome.

    yeah, fuck the new molds like prowl and grimlock, give us more repaints. that'll sell.

    although if nemesis prime is the RiD prime mold, in black fire convoy colors, I'd be tempted. I wouldnt buy it, but I'd be tempted.

    Omegus - the listing says he's War Within. I'd wager that he'd be a repaint of the War Within mold. :p 

    A Dark Fire Convoy figure would have been a far more interesting and awesome figure.

    Dudes, this Nemmy profile is probably for the 3"er we've known about for ages.

    I'm sold for every Nemesis Prime figure, so I will try to get the WW Nemesis, and the First strike prime is for me the best deco for that mold.

    Nemesis Prime is probably the 3" repaint of War Within Prime that was announced a while back. We already know Primal Prime is the 6" Optimal Optimus and the Voyager Prime was shown at SDCC.

    I really don't care about the Titaniums, unless they're gonna put those Shockwave and Cosmos molds into production. I just want First Strike Prime.

    I'd buy a 6" WW Nemesis Prime, and a Black Fire Convoy. In fact, I could see a cool exclusive being made with a light blue RID OP and renaming it Defensor. To fight the SDCC Menasor. :drunk

    Just because the figures show up in Hasbro's systems does NOT mean that they will ever see production. Destro here got them by digging in Hasbro's database (an easy thing to do if you know anything about web addresses).

    Hasbro's web staff are routinely behind the info curve, and we've seen listings in their site for figures that never end up released. Some examples:
    Marvel Heroes (non-Legends) figures
    2.5 GI Joe
    3.75 GI Joe
    Universe Devastator was in the system nearly a year before seeing release.
    Several 3" Titaniums, including some in Transformers (Sunstreaker for example) that never saw release.

    Don't take this as confirmation we're getting these toys, especially with almost no retailers carrying the 6" line.

    yeah my local TRU manager told me yesterday that his store would not order any more of the 6 inch line. They just didn't sell well enough, but he did say that the Transformer line was the best of all the Titanium lines, which all suffer the from a bit of heat stroke after sitting so long.

    The listing says "War Within Nemesis Prime", so I wouldn't bet on the RiD mold.

    You're right though. Nothing says "Dear Target, please cut our second chance short" like a wave of two mediocre repaints.

    The answer, so far, is "nowhere".

    Good point, forgot him. Without any other context, or a link to the respective pages that included these bios, or pictures, there's no way to tell for sure yet.

    Hadn't heard any Titanium news for ages.

    Hopefully they announce when Grimlock/Prowl are due out so I can make sure I get them ordered.

    How about 6" being on clearance right now at my Target? The final 2 cases we had just sold (all at once- not to me) for $11.98 each.
