    Nice to see some official shots for figs like Hot Rod and Six Shot. Pumped for Broadside, but also really happy to see Perceptor, that generations one looks nice on the shelf, but what a mess. Love his Microscope mode. Kickback is great, a long time coming. My biggest shock was a proper Brawn! So happy to see this after the titan master.  No massive reveals yet, but certainly some stuff to get excited about. Also, terrific reuse of Chromedome. That mold is stellar.

    Oh these are all kinds of awesome. That Perceptor is perfection. Sky Shadow looks awesome even as a double vehicle. Broadside is so bought on sight. Repugnus is epic. That Brawn is perfection outright. So need to buy his Titan Master now. I need Brawn to be able to drive Brawn.

    Everything here is so much classic win done up in modern awesome. Even Perceptor looks like he has his hidden tank alt-mode.

    That's about what he's worth.

    That new Perceptor is sooooo gold. The deluxes just keep hitting it home.

    Broadside, missed the mark again because the underside of the carrier mode is tragic. I wonder if he will get acknowledged as the largest Autobot now in Titans Return? Planes on the deck people, planes on the deck. Hot Rod, really great in both modes. This may be my favorite Hot Rod ever, Optimus Prime, robot and semi truck modes are awesome, jet is terrible. The truck mode really looks like a normal truck which is fantastic. Yes that Repungus is too cute. Overlord mold, sorry but I was really hoping for a Blackbird, because I like the Earth looking tank mode.

    I want basically everything on display here, minus the Voyager Optimus and Megatron, only because I'm holding out on Octane and these two don't really have a place in my displays.

    but uGH legends brawn you make mama real happy

    and Sky Shadow looks delicious so I can't wait for the inevitable Overlord (For which I might break my rule of "No Japanese-Original toys" but then I'll have to crack and get Liokaiser too and then it's all downhill from there)

    I wonder if it's possible to get a tank mode out of Perceptor? It's possible to do with his original G1 toy so maybe the same can be done here?

    Also I've said this at the other thread but I can see a potential IDW Star Saber remold from the Sky Shadow/Overlord mold. The design cues are very similar to make it possible.

    Repugnus is cute. I haven't been getting any Titan Masters, but he may be the first.
    Brawn and Kickback are pure win.
    Hot Rod is bought. Perceptor looks neat, but I'm not totally feeling it. A tank mode may win me over (also, it'd be sweet if he had an actual magnifying lens, but I doubt it).
    Sure, I'll get Broadside. He looks pretty neat and comes with mini Aerialbot planes! Pass on Prime, though he does look better. I'll wait for Octane.
    Pass on Sky Shadow. Have no interest in the character. I'll wait for the inevitable Overlord. Love the altmodes, I gotta say. That's a cute tank. Six Shot I'll probably get, but I hate how rectangular he is. I prefer a bit of stylization.

    *reads toy list* Aw, no look at Overlord. *sees Skyshadow* OOOOH! A bit blockyer than I would've liked, but I was expecting that.

    Broadside comes with miniature Aerialbot jets?! OMG, I almost want to buy him just because they included something like that.

    UGH! Perceptor is all bulky. I'm never gonna get an official sleek sniper Perceptor, am I? He doesn't even have rear treads, so he's stuck as a microscope.

    Edit: Actually, Overlord's mold isn't that blocky. In fact, his arms are actually round. I'm just being thrown off by a combination of him being posed like an 80s toy, and my expectations for Skyshadow seeping in.

    Sky Shadow looks nice! Really hoping we'll get Overlord soon! Also I wonder if this mean's we'll be getting Thunderwing out of that mold as well.

    Sixshot, Kickback and Brawn are on my small buy list. *edit: oops, forgot about Triggerhappy and Doublecross (Twinferno).

    Lots of others look great though. Really like the little Aerialbots on Broadside. Sky Shadow looks cool but Overlord will wear the mold better, I think. The Titanmasters are cool, the Elephant homage is great.

    Also add me to the list that NYCC came to as a complete surprise. No idea it was happening this week.
