Robot Heroes under a new name?

tiny titans assortmentMultiple Transformers sites are reporting that “Tiny Titans” figures will be available as a part of the “Robots in Disguse” toyline in 2015. These figures appear to be very similar to the now-defunct “Robot Heroes” line of non-transforming figures that were available in 2007 and 2008.

Made of PVC and standing only two inches high, these figures are posed in various action stances, and will likely have very little in the way of articulation. Retail price per figure is unknown at this time.

The Tiny Titans are expected to arrive at retail in early 2015.

Masterpiece Thundercracker Sighted in SoCal

Masterpiece Thundercracker, exclusive to Toys R Us and based on the Takara MP-11 Coronation Starscream remold, was sighted by my own eyes and wallet yesterday at Culver City, CA TRU, as well as by my friend Bikerscout who found his at Glendale, CA TRU. The pricetag on the set is $69.99 and comes in a keystone box meant to evoke the shape of the original US MP Starscream, only simpler. The instructions on Thundercracker call back to the wrong figure though, using the Starscream v.1 instructions which deviate from this transformation after step 5 of 27. More details will be coming soon.

So you could buy 1 Transformers figure and 1 Star Wars figure, and the discount still applies. This sale will continue until the 18th, according to in-store signage, and since TRU has been told by Hasbro to set aside the August street date on almost everything Transformers, they have a lot of new product right now. Good luck, and good hunting!
