Maybe I'm mistaken but wasn't Cosmos planned as a Classics and not a Titanium?
Either way I'm praying that they follow through and release them thru the club
He was origionally supposed to be a Classics, he was then switched to the Titanium line, and then he was canceled from that line. They've said that they'll try to work him in someplace in the future. I'm thinking we'll see him in the future Classics 2.0 line. Maybe not in the first installment of it, but possibly in the later parts of the line. I honestly kinda like the coloring on thos Piranhacons. I'm kinda hoping that they do make them now, lol.

You know, I really don't want to see those four Titaniums unless they get better engineering. I know everone says that the problems with the Titaniums was their diecast, but really it goes deeper with almost every mold. There's always some Achiles Heel that kind of makes it great, but not as good as it could have been.

For example, Rodimus Prime. He's hollow in the center. Which means if you try to do dynamic poses with him you end up stairing at a gapping hole in his side.

Ultra Magnus' (who everyone is clamouring for) would have excellent articulation... but too much of his armor has been molded in such a way that it limits what you can do with him. Thankfully, I got him through BBTS instead of the insane eBay prices I've seen for this guy of late. NOT WORTH EBAY PEOPLE!

I could go on, but I'll just say that while those molds look good and I wouldn't mind them being released in Classics 2.0... I hope that Hasbro does some engineering overhauling to them first.

Those look nice. I kinda like the color scheme more than the originals. lol
