Default Titans Return Slugslinger and Misfire

Thanks to Hasbro and Hasbro Australia at the 2017 Toy and Hobby Fair, a world first revel of the Titans Return Slugslinger and Misfire.

Photos on our Facebook page here. (link updated)

Misfire has Aimless, for June-July.
Slugslinger has Caliburst, for October-November.

More photos and reports later tonight.

The reveal of the Deluxe Misfire and Slugslinger toys, with some extra photos.










The small gathering, with the two Hasbro ladies there, soliciting feedback and opinions on some potential promotional ideas

Kinda bummed that TM's are now HM's, but they look great and will be bought nonetheless.

As Fatbot said, Misfire needs black head. A lick of paint can fix it

I like the look of Slugslinger, but it looks like his "twin cockpits" are just for show (i.e. fake/non-functional) and the real cockpit is the clear blue one in the middle. I'll still probably get it though. After all, it's Slugslinger! He was voiced by Peter Cullen in Rebirth. Misfire looks very pink.

Misfire is a lot pinker than I would like but otherwise cool. Slugslinger looks great!

Wonder if we will see their Autobot equivalents in 2018 or perhaps sooner? Probably.

They might get away with sharing a common base mould for Crosshairs and Pointblank, but Sureshot's gonna be trickier. Still, I didn't think that they'd be able to do anything with the Triggerhappy mould and Hasbro has proven me wrong on that, so who knows... they might be able to work some engineering marvel and manage to squeeze a convincing Sureshot after all. The great thing about these retools is that none of them feel forced or contrived.

P.S.: Link also didn't work for me. Here's a link to the OzFormers FB page
https://www.facebook.com/ozformers
And if that doesn't work, I've also shared it on Planet Sabretron

P.P.S.: Coincidentally Hasbro are releasing these characters in the same order that I collected them during G1! (Triggerhappy>Misfire>Slugslinger)
Although my very first Headmasters were Apeface and Snapdragon.

Link was broken for me, but saw on TFW. I know nothing about these characters/G1 figures, but they look pretty nice.
