    There's been many repaints that haven't happened in those comics. Notably, Bludgeon and the Autobot Targetmasters.

    Shit, this guy just drops on us out of nowhere! And at standard titan MSRP!! Yay!!!

    Guess this is gonna attract a lot of MP fans too (this is much more MP scaled after all).


    Exactly (although..G1 Cyclonus disagrees).

    It's Gen Select but not Pulse exclusive (Souce: the store I work at just got our solicitation to order him today and they don't offer us the Pulse exclusives)

    That's what I said.o_O 

    I'm doubtful of that. Never say never but Black Zarak would have been a great choice for a main release next year. This feels like they're trying to squeeze out as many titans as they can before they shut down the molds. Maybe a selects in the future...but main line? No, I think that course is run.

    G2 colors didn't sell very well in large sets, unfortunately. Otherwise, we would have seen G2 Defensor by now.

    Not every character is a titan, either.

    I'm glad he's coming even though I'm not buying him (I like having my redecos as different molds so I'm sticking with Devil Stinger as my BZ) but it gives me hope for Metrotitan and Brave Max

    Well I wonder if Black Zarak could be testing ground for them to keep the titan line alive for the time being via repaints while they figure out how to keep going with it? Everyone has said that the reason the titans were being done away with was due to their production costs. which we all know by now that repaints help elevate this because they are cheaper to produce because upfront costs have already been taken care of by the initial release.

    What if Hasbro could fix the titan costs issue by giving us more titans instead of stopping them entirely? like say 2 a year instead of 1 a year. A new mold and a repaint/retool of the one from the year previous to help off set the costs.

    It’s still a better deal (or the same depending on your tax rate) there since they don’t charge tax. Preordered at TCP!

    The surprising thing is that leakers were saying we would NOT get BZ because Titans barely make any profit. This is great. I love surprises.

    What titans still need to be made that can accommodate repaints like that?

    Considering that titans were dead at brick and mortar retail after toys r us was murdered, Selects/Pulse is a good place for them. I hope we get more. Gigastorm, G2 Devastator, Brave Max, a second run of Grand Max, Omega Sentinel, and maybe some kinda Maximal/Anibot repaint for Predaking.

    I know it makes sense at titan scale from a cost perspective but I was really hoping they would downscale him to commander some how. He was much closer in height to God Ginrai and Overlord in Masterforce.

    Or maybe we'll get Commander Class God Ginrai and Overlord in the future instead. :D 

    So, regardless on how we all feel on this release, let's all take a moment to thank Hasbro and Takara for NOT opting to go in this direction instead:
