    Well of course I'll recommend you reading it!

    It's a full production, with sets and effects. I can't draw for crap, but these toys have made it possible to do such a "photo-comic", so after years of wanting to do something like this, I finally started.

    It takes in figures from every line (that I have), including the Prime trilogy (so Titan Returns too) that work well together.

    It's getting close to a 100 pages... and still barely getting the story started and been adding "doors" to sub-stories should I find the time.

    Hope you take the time and that you enjoy it.

    I'm aware plenty of people dislike him and that mold but I'm tempted to hunt down a loose Titans Return Tidal Wave because I kind of want 'a sea dude' for the Titans Return triple changers and a Broadside repaint fits well for a smaller Titdal Wave. Is it a mistake/bad idea?

    Im not sure why the mold is disliked tbh. Tidal wave is a really nice repaint. The face sculpt really seals the deal for me too. I wouldnt call it a bad idea. Just dont pay too much.

    Figured that all my Titans Returns pieces needed to be consolidated in one spot, so here they are after some housekeeping today, somewhat categorized by their subgroups!

    And the larger bots and misc at the bottom! TR_Front.JPG


    Fort Max and Trypticon had live in separate spaces due to space :/

    This line really was a cool one which brought back so many memories of staring at ye olde catalogs in the past but never being able to collect them all :) ​

    The 'triggerhappy' and 'monsterbots' trio are the kings of deluxes in the TR era!

    Very funny :D ! and it also helps me to appreciate a little more Alpha Trion toy ,that I find a little bland compared to other Titans Return ones .

    Splendid ,it shows very well why I'd buy him,as a corrupted and rotten former leader Autobot with glorious past but now for hatred he's affiliated with TR Galvatron ,and in my universe, along Cyclonus, is one of his 2 helpers in battle against waves of enemies in enormous battles!

    Still amused by how Takara called this figure Leo Prime instead of Lio Convoy. Shows 3 different heads on him:

    Convobat Headmaster (different plastic and paint colors):

    Did anyone ever connect bat convoy to his back? Saw that with A3 and Mindwipe?

    Took a while to figure out how that setup was done. Surprised he didn't tip over backwards despite the lack of heel supports.

    Convobat: "Hey, Leo, what's our new battle cry?"
    Leo Prime: "Get the [email protected]!!% off me!"

    I enjoyed the strength set way more than the speed set, and TR Tidal Wave was a big reason why
    He's pretty imposing, and curbstomps TR Broadside imo (can't speak for LG Broadside though)
    Tidal Wave's face has got that whole "looking up at him" dynamic with the chin placement, that really no other TR face has
    Makes him unique, and the colours are cool (neon orange wings, on purple/grey)
