This post copied from 2016 toy checklist.

-----------------------------------

FEB 2016 - Titan Wars

Unknown original posting - mirrored posting here.

Headmaster Star Convoy / Laser Prime from G2.

Headmaster Megatron is obviously Blitzwing, but with a Megatron head. You can see his tank turret on his back, and jet fins on his ankles. He comes with two guns which merge to form his big cannon that can plug into his arm. Megatron's head looks very G1 in head mode. In "Nebulon" mode it has a red torso, and grey limbs.

Chromedome's getting repainted as Getaway. Head looks G1.

Triggerhappy is a headmaster who looks very G1.

Hot Rod is a headmaster who looks G1 in vehicle mode. Robot mode looks vaguely IDW to me. Small waste. Long thinghs. Big hexagonal kneepads with vents in them.

Alpha Trion's a triple changer. Beast Mode is a wolf with a unicorn horn (I have no idea why). Jet mode looks very Vector Prime.

Weirdwolf looks good. Very G1.

Powermaster Prime is getting a Diaclone repaint, so it's a blue COE truck. They seem to be calling it Magnus Prime or something along those lines (I can't remember for sure).

Tidal Wave seems to be coming back (investor art, photoshopped, rough). Looks like it'll share a mold with Broadside. Vehicle mode seems to be USS Flagg homage. Part of "strength series". Tidal Wave's head is called Powerhouse. Grey body. Green limbs.

Decepticon Clones. Looked to me like they have a Predaking. And the D-clones were Predaking parts. Same with Horri-Bull.

Sharkticon looks very round and G1.

Technobots look like you'd expect. But Afterburner is weird. Instead of making him G1, or just an orange Takara Groove, he's got this really long warped/bent windshield. It looks awkward to me. But that was my only complaint from everything I saw.

SDCC Fort Max comes with red sword. Has blue hands, instead of white.

Takara Metroplex repaint as Diaclone Fortress X rumour?

What do you make of this?
Saw it on facebook posted in the TCCA group: Open Your Toys Cast

DaptoDog 26th September 2016 12:21 PM

They don't reveal the actual source of the photo so could just be a custom.

Fungal Infection 26th September 2016 12:29 PM

Was a diaclone Metroplex ever made?? As far as I recall, the only recolour would be Metrotitan right?

The link that philby posted has pictures in the comments section of Diaclone Robot Fortress X which shares a similar colour scheme and head to the one pictured but is not based on the G1 Metroplex mold. Very obscure though.

OptimusNerd 27th September 2016 08:15 AM

Definitely a custom. Link to original (Twitter) photos in this TFW forum.

Deonasis 27th September 2016 09:45 AM

A custom BUT this is what a SDCC or AKG? exclusive should be. Far better than a different set of stickers or minimal paint difference (looking at you Metroplex).

DaptoDog 21st April 2017 05:48 PM

This is a RUMOUR. One of the well connected members on TFW claims there will be a MP-36C sold as a TakaraTomyMall Exclusive that will be toy accurate silver / chrome. No news on when this will be released so please treat as only a rumour until it is confirmed.

Ploughmans Lunch 21st April 2017 07:14 PM

Would've been nice if there was an MP-36B instead, but hope springs eternal I guess~!
