Pricing error[edit]

When the first series of the 6" Titanium series figures was released in August 2006, Target stores initially sold them for their suggested retail price, but then shortly afterwards their computer systems started swapping the prices for the 6" and 3" figures. This resulted in the prices ringing up for 6" figures at one third their normal price, and the 3" figures ringing up at three times their normal price. After a few weeks the problem was fixed. The 3" figures soon returned to their original price, and also sported a sign saying they were "reduced".

Future releases[edit]

A pamphlet included with The Fallen and Cheetor lists many new 3" Robot Masters. They include characters from the 2007 movie (Decepticon Brawl, Autobot Ratchet) as well as the following: War Within Megatron, Jetfire, Soundblaster, Skywarp, Silverstreak, Black Rodimus, Shockwave, Ultra Magnus, and Grimlock. It is unknown at this time if any of these new figures are repaints of existing molds.[3] Apart from the movie characters, these have not seen a release yet.

The 6" line has been canceled and Grimlock and Prowl are said to be the final new molds released, though no schedule has been revealed. Molds for several unreleased figures were on display at the 2007 BotCon, and it's possible they may be released as part of other toy lines. They included Cosmos, Arcee, Shockwave, Silverstreak and War Within Bumblebee (along with a Cliffjumper head).[4]

Grimlock and Prowl where released in August 2008 as ToysRUs exclusives. A Thundercracker redeco for Skywarp was released as a SDCC exclusive also available from

Currently this is the end of the 6-inch (150 mm) Titanium line with all other prototypes being shelved by Hasbro.

During a panel discussion at BotCon 2009, a Hasbro employee stated that there are plans for more figures in the Titanium line to be released. 2009 saw the release of 3 redeco 6-inch (150 mm) figures as Target store exclusives, under the name label Transformers: Universe Titanium Series.
