    Wave 4 is showing the first repaints...

    Since we got SO MANY repaints in Combiner Wars, i'm wondering if Hasbro has just as many repaints slated for Titans?

    It's near wave 4 right now. Once they sell Wave 5, what will come next?

    Hmm... Maybe CW was 6 waves?

    Optimus Wave
    Superion Wave
    Menasor Wave
    Bruticus Wave
    Defensor Wave
    Skyreign Wave

    Optimus and Skyreign was heavy on the repaints though.

    I'm pretty sure we can predict the obvious Twin Twist, Blitzwing, Octane and Overlord are coming based on molds/characters already revealed. It looks like they are trying to do as many of the original Targetmasters as well. I would imagine they will give Headmaster Don his headmaster Arcee as well?

    After Titans Return it is off to "Power of the Primes"
    Ive been thinking, maybe there is no new gimmick for POP, but just all the other gimmicks from CW and TR thrown together. Maybe one wave is Abominus combiner, and the next wave are the Pretenders or G1 Dinobots who happen to be Titan/Headmasters, followed by a Predaking wave, etc.?

    The movie is coming this summer IIRC. I recall hunting for CW Ultra Magnus and finding Jurrasic World toys on TF pegs at all the stores.

    Wave 3 hasn't saturated everywhere in the U.S. Yet and we're hoping for two more waves before the movie toys release everywhere on a specific day maybe five months from now. I think some areas will have A better window for wave 5 than others.

    I'm going off the rumor mills list and say 6 waves like Combiner Wars...

    Wave 5 at least is rumored to contain the likes of Titan Master Optimus Prime, Ramhorn (ugh!), Toraizer, Legends Cosmos, Seaspray, Deluxe Crosshairs, Slugslinger, Misfire, Voyager Octane, & Blitzwing

    Then there is the rumors of Legends Cliffjumper, Hubcap, Searchlight, Freeway & Deluxe Nightbeat & Needlenose. I think there were rumors of an Overlord based on Sky Shadow (I don't see it). As well as Hosehead, Ranger, & Arcee in the Titan Master size class.

    But I'm hoping there might be more waves cause I REALLY want the rumors of two box sets containing the likes of Delta Magnus, Nautica, Quickswitch, Pounce, Cloudraker, & Tidal Wave to be false.

    Really? Maybe not from the shape of his body, but the tank/jet modes splitting, it'll be a pretty extensive retool

    I'm not expecting more than a different chest and head for Overlord. It will be TR Overlord, 100% accurate to itself.

    Edit: oh, and cones added to the shoulders. Maybe that's hoping for too much.

    Not rumors, he's been confirmed for a while now.
    He isn't based on Sky Shadow either, Sky Shadow is just his pretool so in a way, he's based on Overlord.

    They're going to release Sky Shadow first because no one would buy it if they release overlord first.

    Even considering Sky Shadow as a pretool, it is a great Transformers. No regrets buying him and also a future Overlord.

    Probably Six which would take us to the Autumn and then time for one Wave of Power of the Prime's right at Years end as seems to be typical when they do relaunches.

    I've enjoyed this Line so much I would be happy if they just kept going but I guess it's on to the next gimmick after this year.

    Combiner Wars lasted for 18 months with 6 waves of retail product and 6 fancy boxsets.
    hopefully Titans return will do the same.
    hopefully Power of the primes will do the same
    and then we'll have us a 35th anniversary line in 2019.

    The last three Generations sublines have had 23-25 deluxe figures at mass retail (excluding exclusives). However many waves it takes to get there is my guess (we're at 17 now). Probably two more waves, but we could get three if there are some repacks.

    You don't see Overlord from Sky Shadow? That's a classic "pre-mold" case. The entire transformation is Overlord.

    I hope we manage to get a Frenzy and Eject by the end of Titans Return.

    I suppose if we don't, they'll be in future lines kinda like with what happened with Buzzsaw coming out in CW.

    If they follow the historical trend of the last couple years (and giving this is a movie year, there could be some disruption, but it SEEMS like they intend to keep Generations running full-tilt alongside movie product this go-round),
    there will be 6 waves.
    Wave 2 2017 (aka TR Wave 4) should start hitting the US in late winter/early Spring
    Wave 3 2017 (aka TR Wave 5 - Trypticon!!!) should start hitting the US in late Spring/Early Summer
    Wave 4 2017 (aka TR Wave 6) should start hitting the US in late Summer/early Autumn
    Wave 1 2018 will come out late November/early December and should be Power of the Primes (or whatever Prime Wars 3 ends up being called) Wave 1.

    yeah, Hasbro officially teased a silhouette of Overlord (who had a completely different jet mode), that is EXACTLY Overlord's tank mode and he has been found in Retailer computer listings with a different product number then Black Shadow.

    That's as good as confirmed minus an official announcement.
