    I didn’t see it yet, but... I’d be Shocked if unarmored Shockers couldn’t transform! :p 

    If you don’t mind that you might have to work harder to have them fit in with the Macross or Legend of the Galactic Heroes vehicle modes for the Waveys—and that there’s a very slim chance that they might be harder to weaponize with Brunt, Ravage and the like~

    There is Mech Fans Toys and Papa Toys oversized KOs of Perfect Effect’s Reflector.

    I’m considering MFT’s Black/Diaclone ‘Flector since they’d fit more with MasterMade’s Trypticon, though I think the Siege ‘Flector might have the better camera mode.

    And, both KOs also come with a ton of weapons, so that might make up for the differences in design.

    Still, there’s something about those dualing KOs that had me thinking that HasTak also had a set of paparazzi in development. Though, my guess was that they were the rumored spies... Until it was noted that there were some mecha pet cassettes that were also called spies, along with some micro masters. Then, I put equal odds on Reflector and the Tape Bots, with some slim chance of those micromaster Decepticars.

    Oh, and thinking towards Gundam for a trip down mecha past, maybe Shockwave and Soundwave transform into “Waveriders!:D

    The hi-res images seem to show that the main component (Shockwave) becomes the laser pistol and plugs into the battle armor/surfboard.

    EDIT: literally ninja'd

    Yes, but now I can’t find the picture.


    Edit: I think the first time I looked at the Decepticon renders, I confused Reflector’s individual weapon mode for Shockwave, but didn’t realize that’s what I was looking at after I found out that that was Reflector.
    Well dang, I didn’t see that before!!! NICE!!!!

    Just realized Brunt is based off the IDW Centurion Droids.

    For what it’s worth, I would imagine that’s how Takara will release them as a 3-Pack. Japan isn’t bound by certain price points like the US & most of the rest of the world is, so they’re ok. Because of the unification between the two you won’t see a different deco, but they’re releasing Punch without his Titan Master there as a regular release at retail.

    You’ll probably also see Reflector as an exclusive 3-Pack down the line I imagine, probably in toy colours with maybe a bit of remolding (like Target did with their recent Titans Return Soundwave remold)

    Regardless, the panic that Computron wasn't happening was unfounded.

    Not really. Hasbro fully admitted they made Betatron because they weren’t going to do him and the plans changed to make another box set

    Titan Omega Supreme!? Sweet!
    Let\'s hope he isn\'t disappointing like the other 3 Titan figures.

    I highly doubt that Hasbro will be able to beat Wei Jiang's Ultima Guard. Every single large figure by Hasbro has ended up being a disaster that needed a 3P to step up and improve them. I will follow Omega's progress, but I just don't think it will impress.

    “Articulation to the next level” just means ankle tilt and wrist swivel gets added back in. *eye roll*

    This is not true. I own Fortress Maximus and Trypticon and both are excellent figures with or without 3rd Party add-ons.
