So I got to thinking the other day, playing with my Chomp and Stomp Grimlock. (Which I'm having a lot of fun with, btw, as it's encouraged me to pick up some of the one steps and they are surprisingly done! Check out onestep hound at the very least!) That at an $80 MSRP, and massive 20 inch robot mode, he's basically Hasbro's "giant scale big ticket toy" for this year. The big one that kids are meant to spot on the shelf and be their parents for Christmas. Seems reasonable, right? But it got me thinking that basically that's what Metroplex was for last year: Giant expensive neat looking toy for Christmas, and act as a play set for your other TF toys. (Which C&S Grimlock also does to a lesser degree.) Once I saw that, I suddenly realized that C&S Grimlock is basically filling Metroplex's "slot" for this season. It may not be a "Titan" class, but it's doing the same sort of thing from a marketing perspective. So What I'm getting as is that a pattern may be emerging: Hasbro doing one large, big ticket expensive TF toy a year, revealed at toy fair and dropping in the third quarter. As such, I think "Titan class" may have more life to it. Now, as C&S grimlock is a price point reduction on Metroplex, we may see varying degrees of size and complexity for each year's "big ticket." And they may alternate back and forth between Generations and Rid. A retool of Metroplex may yet be the best option for another Titan class, (I'm really warming up to the idea that someone suggested of retooling him into Tidal Wave and emphasizing the carier mode,) But some other new, slightly smaller toolings along the line of C&S Grimlock may be up. Like say, how would you all feel about an 18-20 inch high Omega supreme that turned into an updated version of the rocket base that would work with the Legend class figures like Metroplex did? I think I would be up for it! What do you all think of the "big ticket toys" for the years to come?
