We can assume these molds were originally designed and always intended to be these two. So it came as no big surprise to see them unveiled at #HasbroToyFair. But having seen the mold before as Megatron and Optimus pre-colors, I was shocked at my own reaction to see just how sweet these toys look as their intended characters: Octane and Blitzwing.
See for yourself! I think you'll agree, they turned out very well. Images taken at #ToyFair2017 display are now archived and available 24/7/365 in the 2017 Transformers Section

While Toy Fair was commencing over the weekend in New York, TakaraTomy was not one to be one-upped by its American counterparts at Hasbro. For over in Japan was Wonderfest taking place the same weekend, at which TakaraTomy showed off its own latest Transformers products and foreshadowed others to come. While Hasbro was unveiling the likes of Titan class Trypticon, TakaraTomy was silently announcing a new dinosaur toy of their own.
Thanks to snakas blog, we have scans of a flyer that was handed out at Wonderfest, which advertised several new Transformers products from TakaraTomy (mostly for Transformers: The Last Knight), including a silhouette accompanied by text that indicates said silhouette to be for the third Beast Wars figure of the Masterpiece series. Behold the announcement of Masterpiece DINOBOT!!! ...
Hasbro representatives introduced this Movie "Premiere Edition" Deluxe character in their #ToyFair2017 presentation as "The First Knight." Considering the name of the next Transformers film, I'm left wondering if this guy could make an on-screen appearance? It's an interesting mix, to have a Dragon alt mode with a Renaissance styled robot mode. Interesting food for thought.

I never thought there could be a better toy depiction of Movie Bumblebee, than the first Human Alliance figure. That toy, to me, has endured as the definitive version of the character. - Until now, I now stand corrected!
2017's Movie Masterpiece Bumblebee is closer to being in-scale with other figures and has sculpting detail much closer to the 3D models produced by by ILM special effects animators. IMHO it looks beautiful in each mode and Hasbro representatives tell me the level of complexity for transformation is what they believe fans will consider "just right."

The Wrecker pair, make their triumphant come-back. If you thought that Topspin looked amazing, (and he does!) wait until you get a load of this! brother-in-arms, Twin Twist, shall return in the next wave of Titans Return Deluxe figures.
Designer John Warden told a fun story, about the inspiration for this character/toy came from a occasion gardening, where while digging, he unearthed a G1 original - 30+ year-old figures. Imagining a child playing with the toy in vehicle mode, drilling in the dirt. He dusted it off and to his amazement, the spring loaded transform mechanism still worked! Hope you enjoy our photos as much as we enjoyed seeing it!
We've been waiting (not so patiently!) and we finally have our first look at this Titans Return Leader Class figure. He's a beautiful representation of this formerly Japan-only G1 favorite! Hasbro representatives explained that the chest compartments can swing open, just like the Masterforce original. Similarly, the robot splits into two vehicles and has a combined base mode, which was not on display. Alongside Sixshot and Skyshadow, we now have an army of our own "Phase Sixers!"
Comprised of Decepticon Clone Pounce, Energon Tidal Wave, Takara G1 Classic Metalhawk and Masterforce Ginrai! Check out our complete new gallery of this beautiful set! We were told that the clones would only be available in these Series Packs, so one can surmise that additional packs including Cloudraker and Wingspan are yet to come!
Comprised of Autobot Clone Fastlane, MTMTE/Lost Light Nautica, G2 Laser Optimus Prime and Autobot 6-Changer Quickswitch! This is just the first of many photo galleries will start with this beautiful set!
From the showfloor of #ToyFair2017, #Transformers Generations Design Director John Warden points out some of the features and highlights of this beautiful behemuth! The largest Decepticon ever made, Trypticon boasts 3 impressive modes: a towering t-rex, Decepticon City, and Nemesis (Decepticon spaceship).
On display with so many other upcoming Titans Return toys, it takes awhile to soak it all in! Hope you enjoy watching as much as we enjoyed seeing it firsthand! Stay tuned, there's a lot more goodness to come!

Thanks to Hasbro for providing us our first look and info on Titans Return Trypticon in each of his three modes. Much more to come from ToyFair midday tomorrow (Saturday)!
"Hasbro will be unveiling one of their BIGGEST (literally) toys of 2017 – the TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS TITANS RETURN TRYPTICON Action Figure!
In 2015 (as you may already know) Hasbro gave fans the option to vote for their favorite character to become the next Generations Titans Return Titan Class toy. The ballots were counted and fans voted on TRYPTICON.
Coming in the fall, the TRYPTICON figure is the largest figure in the 2017 Titans Return universe and is also the biggest Decepticon figure ever made. It converts between three different modes: dino, spaceship and city."
Excited for New York Toy Fair this weekend? IGN is too as they have posted new official images of Titans Return Titan class Trypticon in all of his modes, as well as concept art and prototype images. Based heavily on the original 1986 G1 Trypticon design, this impressively large figuret transforms from its Godzilla-esque robot mode to either its City Mode or its Spaceship Mode, and is the largest Decepticon toy ever made! In City Mode, other Titans Return Leader class toys can connect to Trypticon to form the mighty Nemesis Command, and his Spaceship Mode is a modern reinterpretation of the 1986 toy's Battle Station Mode. But the dino-like Robot Mode is where the real fun is at, as he can swallow Titan Master figures and have them removed from the toy's stomach.
Trypticon also comes with Deluxe class Full-Tilt, who is the true aspect of this figure's belonging to the Titans Return line, as Full-Tilt's head detaches to become the Titan Master named Decepticon Necro, who in turn is based on Trypticon's little minion from the G1 Marvel Comics named Wipe-Out.
Trypticon is set for release in Fall 2017, priced at $149.99. Look forward to more coverage of this awesome figure at New York Toy Fair over the weekend. ...
