    Wow that backpack transformation with the wings folding around it is amazing.

    Is Nitro's head small enough to fit into the cockpit?

    I do like Warden's F-5/F-16 hybrid jet design but man it would've been cool if it turned into a Gripen like in the movie.

    I think dragonstorm would look a lot better if he was primarily black. That tan looks awful

    "Hey. You color Dragonstorm accurately?"
    "No..."
    "Be a lot cooler if you did."

    It wasn't hence the post I made. So glad the OP fixed that.

    Wow the head just rips right off! Too bad we don't see that in the movie. It's so cool we get to have the titan master gimmick make it into the movie figure line. The best of both worlds.

    "Warden was excited to do it because of his time with the G.I. Joe Franchise."

    I almost want to think that Nitro Zeus is doubling as a test market toy to see how other might react to real life looking mold with cockpits and spaces for drivers at such a small scale for the possibility of a proper GI Joe Transformers toy line. The hybrid jet design is very much GI Joe like in that it accommodates for cost and budget by justifying its inaccurate scale as a special compact version of a vehicle that the designers were inspired by.

    I believe that making a cross over line with headmaster elements and micro sized figures (with 3.75 or 6" figure support) would be a great way to inject enthusiasm for the Joe line. I hope it happens.

    Nitro Zeus with Cogman would be a great test for this.

    It's kind of an extension of the Cyberverse playstyle(which Warden also worked with); smaller Transformers interacting with bigger vehicles and playsets. It's worked well IMO with the Titans Return line and I love how we have a Headmaster(Cogman) and Headmaster compatible figure(Nitro) in the TLK line. I didn't care if we got Titanmaster movie figures, I wanted it to happen whether it was canon or not since Headmasters have been my favorite TF figures since childhood.

    Skullitron still looks amazing, apart from his altmode parts which neither match his paintjob nor the moviestyle dragons. Need it! Protect the staaaafff!

    Dragonstorm...eh. I think all modes look cool enough (maybe the dragon necks are a bit dinky), and I don't mind he's not made up of the impossible number of 12 knights..but the paintjob just looks very disjointed. Plus the return of the most horrible plastic grey color.

    Fingers crossed for an eventual Premium or Takara repaint. Mold seems bitching enough!

    Wouldn't mind this. Not a Joe fan but I adored the Human Alliance subline. Too bad they kind of dropped the ball on that by just giving us hordes of uninteresting soldier guys and racers with helmets..but the idea was solid and I wish TFs would come with tiny posable human figures more often.

    Hmmmmm...I don't have mine in front of me, but does anyone else want to see if DOTM shockwave's head will fit on a Titans return headmaster balljoint?

    The character, the toy, and the packaging art all have different heads. :lol

    It would be a really smart move for them to re-release the figure with a KSI Boss head, so people can buy dozens of them for Age of Extinction displays. Kinda doubt it, but it would be cool.
