    Potentially.

    Yeah, classics toys will be great. Yeah, it's the line that most of us have been waiting for since Generation 2 or Beast Wars. But it's sort of a been there done that situation for me. We have been bombarded with reissues and homages for years now.

    Titanium on the other hand opens up a whole new world of sculpting. I've always been a huge fan of the futuristic transformers, beginning from when I first saw Wheeljack and Bumblebee, to characters like Kup, Blurr and Springer. I'm really hoping they will continue to create War Within toys like Wheeljack, Red Alert, Grimlock, etc.

    Not only that, but it opens up the possibility of odd characters like Devcon, Alpha Trion, and any number of fembots. The possibilities are endless:rock

    Yeah Im pretty stoked over the Titaniums.
    With some good suprises already in the first wave, no telling what the possibilities are for who they're going to do next.
    If they can do Unicron playing moon basketball, then they can make anything.

    Was hoping they would die cast some G1 cassettes or Minibots and bring them into it as well.

    I dont care much for the titaniums. the sculpting is weak, and they're really simplistic. they look pretty sloppy too.

    I'm far more looking forward to Classics. Titanium Jetfire is a must get, but the others don't really do much for me. I was never a huge fan of futuristic alt modes. Ti-Jetfire is just one that I happen to think looks pretty cool.

    There are only two titaniums that I like, thundercraker & skyfire/jetstorm. I've never cared about the war within so prime doesnt fancy me and I just cant dig that tank megatron no matter how much I try. The three inch ones shouldnt even exist they're so bad.

    Overall I think there's some good potential with the Titaniums but I'm way more excited for Classics. We'll have to see how the lines progress, then maybe I'll change my mind.

    I see Titaniums as a chance to pick up the ball that classics dropped. Give us the G1 toys ( that look the same in both modes ) but with more articulation. I'd rather see that anyway. G1's should have diecast.

    I'm still not too keen on the Titaniums what with the diecast and all.

    I could care less about the 3' titaniums but I like all the war within 6' titaniums. I can't wait to see which scourge will be in the third wave...hopefully the G1 version. I am more excited about the classics though.

    Hello guys so long not posting as regularly as I used to, but I am back again... a few questions if you don't mind, but I am little bit late for news:

    1- Does Titanium Megatron 6" have got articulation on the knees?

    2- How many Titanium 6" have been announced so far?

    Thanks a lot guys!

    I don't really care much about the 3" besides the Autobot shuttle and Unicron, but I'm full throttle for the 6" transformables.:D 

    Yes, the possibilities are limitless in that scale. *cough* please WW Nemesis Prime *cough*

    And Neo-Bombshell in regards to your questions:
    1. I think he does if I remember correctly from the TF Club magazine info...
    2. WW Optimus Prime
    Megatron (GIJoe/TF)
    WW Jetfire
    WW Thundercracker
    Optimal Optimus
    Scourge (I'm hoping G1)

    It has already been said that its the G1 version in classics, and for titaniums, its pretty unlikely to be anything else ;)
