Most Transformer fans are probably aware that the official Botcon convention is this weekend. However, for those that couldn’t be there, Hasbro has provided official pictures of all the Transformers revealed today at their 11 am EST panel.
First up from the upcoming Titans Return series we have Voyager Class Alpha Trion and Astro Train:
Next is Titans Return Deluxe Wave 2 Wolfwire (looks like they lost the name Weirdwolf) and Highbrow:
And here are the Titan Masters that will come packed with Deluxe Wave 2: Apeface, Brawn, Clobber, and Skytread:
On the Combiner Wars front, it also looks like Hasbro collectors will no longer have to look to Takara’s Unite Warriors line if they want a Groove for Defensor! He is expected to hit retail around May of 2016:
And of course the big reveal of one of Hasbro’s worst kept secrets ever, the Computron box set! Computron will include Voyager Class Scattershot, Deluxe Strafe, Deluxe Nosecone, Deluxe Lightsteed, Deluxe Afterbreaker, and Legends Scrounge. Here are the individual bots:
And here is the completed Computron gestalt, my biggest plus on this set are the scrapping the feet/hands for new ones. I wish the Takara set had the Hasbro hands and feet:
Finally we have a Platinum Edition Autobots Heroes box set which will include redecos of Leader Ultra Magnus, Voyager Springer, Deluxe Blurr, Deluxe Arcee, and Deluxe Kup. A Leader, Voyager, and three deluxes in a box set? It’s probably going to be a pricey one, but a decent selection of characters, none the less:
Personally, I can’t wait for these Titan Returns figures to start hitting the shelves. Headmasters are great, and I think they did a bang up job with Wolfwire aka Weirdwolf.
