    I assume that's because the packaging was probably designed (maybe even printed) before the Titanium line was coming to an end, so the guys doing the packaging were under the impression that those toys would be coming out too, and Hasbro didn't want to redo the packaging.

    It might also mean that Primal Prime and Soundblaster might still be coming out. Who knows.

    That was my initial thought, though with a date code stamp of 81621 that translates to production on June 11, 2008, first shift... I think.

    I'd have to guess 2 sets, but only because a 2 case of them seems pointless, and shortpacking an exclusive is odd.

    My wife picked these up for me today in Burbank, CA. She said there were three or four of each figure.

    Can't believe they're $20 now. Not worth it.

    only Titanium you Canadians get are the one that will be of Backstop. Its perfect, as he already has a simple transformation and is a brick.

    I will get these. But I will keep them in package. They could've been so much more.

    I want them, but not $20 want. Hell, prolly not even $17 want.

    I'll hope these are like most other things and someone sells them in a month because they need cash and I end up with the set for $20.

    I can't believe I'm saying this considering War Within is my favorite sub-series offshoot of G1, but I think I'm actually going to pass on these. If there were many more figures already released in the series, I'd buy them in a second. But being a cancelled line with so few figures to begin with, I don't really see the need to get 2 more for a collection that will still look incomplete when/if displayed. Plus it looks like Grimlock suffers from the same lack of proper transformation to alt mode problems that Megatron does.

    All the same, I'm glad these DID get released, especially for Grimlock & Prowl collectors.

    I'd almost put money on it they'll be SDCC or botcon exclusives. Probably the next 2 sdcc titaniums, since they've been doing one for sdcc the past couple of years. This gives them Ti6 molds for two more years of repaints, maybe more if they toss in the prowl repaints after those.
