2016 New York Toy Fair Transformers Toys

Over this weekend the 2016 New York Toy Fair was held to announce a planned slate of toys for at least some of 2016. Hasbro was on hand to reveal their planned first wave releases of Transformers: Titan Wars and Robots in Disguise season 2 figures. For Titans War, the main gimmick was Titan Masters which is the catch all name for G1s Head Masters, Target Masters, and Power Masters. The signature figure was Fortress Maximus whose retains the G1 gimmick of his head transforming into Deluxe scaled Cerebros and his head in also a Titan Master called Emissary. Below is a link to the official pictures (really computer renders) and show room galleries for these upcoming Transformers. No release dates but presentation suggested Fall 2016 for Titan Wars (which makes me wonder what the next 8 or so months of TF toys will be).
