What a waste of time, money, and resources.

Once again, Hasbro gives this figure ball-jointed shoulders, yet says that figure with articulation like that aren't viable on the market.

What a spread on that left hand! He looks like he's beginning to morph into a werewolf!

Ill say it again. If they did a line like this of just droids I would get multiples of all of them. Maybe certain troopers, but certainly droids.

Surprised to see this thread pop back up here... Can it not be moved to the "out of sight, out of mind" recess of the Titanium section now? Or is there an editorial hand at work here?

If there is a Titanium section I would like to have a link to it. as blatantly stupid as this wave and especially these sculpts are ...this may not be a high point for Titaniums but I have a legit enthusiasm for the concept and would like to support it at least in conversation here on RS for the possibility of someday refining it into the line it could potentially be. Imagine a Phasma with polished Titanium body ( would look like a Plasma Juliet if you follow the good Oakleys) with BJ Shoulders and elbows. I would be far more glorious than even the SA Phamsa and would even be more screen accurate than a vac metal one. FX-7, Super battle droids, Saw, Magna Guards, RA-7 Death Star droid ( god that would RULE).... there are a LOT of good choices that would make sense character wise in this line. They just need to make smart choices about which parts they die cast and for the love of the force of will NUETRAL POSES

I saw the whole wave of these 40AC Titanium figures at GameStop of all places. I'm not really into the concept. And the $16.99 price point (at least at GameStop) did not help that.

What he said. Metal droids. That said, I like the Leia and the character artwork behind her. Nice scene specific pose as well.

I guess these threads are never going to get moved. Anyway, I spotted a TON of these figures at Walmart this morning. They already had clearance tags on them! Not sure if it was intentional though, they could have just hung them on the pegs where the 3 3/4" TBS were.

Is there a thread discussing this Titanium line as a whole? I have yet to see a single one at retail, not that I'm too anxious to. Certainly not for the sake of buying them, but I would like to see them in person.

I don't disagree with this concept as a whole, just the specific execution.

I don't mind the preposed nature of the figures and the lack of articulation. I think a line of figures like that, especially with cool stands could do quite as at work desk items. Simple little fun statues that you dont mind decorating your cubicle with. The problem is the price. $15 per fig is a lot to ask for these guys. Especially since they are basically rehashes of the 25th anniversary two packs. And you can get those for dirt cheap on eBay. If you go down the mostly preposed route, make them cheap. Super cheap. Like $5 range.

If you insist on the $15 price point then make them the ultimate editions of figures. Like the votc was when it first came out but take it to the next level. Alternate hands, tons of accessories. All new from the ground up sculpts. Yes it's a lot of cost in the beginning but the plan is to put the same ultimate sculpts on vintage cards next year without all the accessories.

There is a whole section for Titanium stuff here. I realize that's primarily for Titanium vehicles, but it seem more appropriate than the "Black Collection 3.75"" section.

there's actually one really good use for this figure: it's the perfect head to pop on medical frigate leia for the best yet ANH leia.

Thing is that the Medical frigate leia is a 3 inch figure.

The newer black series Titanium figures are bigger at 4-6 inches so the titanium heads are bigger so they wouldn't fit onto a 3 inch figure where the head will just wobble around probably.


Plus some pics comparison of a regular 3 inch figure and a newer Black Series Titanium would help.

I've tried the titanium head on the VOTC / Medical Frigate body. It fits better on the VOTC body for some reason but the skin tone is off. It's a little bit too big on the body for my tastes but works if you use other big-head figures around (ceremony Han for example).

Cool, doesn't look all that disproportionate to me, I think the VOTC figure may have had a smaller than normal head. I'm not sure the Titanium figures are a larger scale, Hasbro stated they are 3.75 scale, though the way they were produced may have made them slightly larger, considering parts are made with both plastic and metal.
