The updated "Titans Return" versions of Grotusque and Repugnus were both limited items with Grotusque going for high prices on the secondary market while Repugnus has been selling out from Amazon consistently. Now fans who missed out on these figures have another chance thanks to Takara Tomy!
With a terrible attitude and a willingness to cross lines other Autobots won't, Repugnus lives up to his name as he uses any methods necessary to destroy Decepticon enemies! Today I bring you my review and gallery of "Generations" Repugnus!
In 2016 Hasbro released an updated version of the G1 Monsterbot Doublecross as "Twinferno" in "Titans Return". Then a year later they released both a Titan Master Repugnus and a Deluxe Class Grotusque. This seemed to round out the three G1 Monsterbot homages, but many fans were left unsatisfied by Repugnus seemingly being erm...shortchanged by only having a small figure (pictured left with his G1 counterpart).
Back in October it was announced at New York Comic-Con 2017 that Hasbro would be releasing a "Titans Return" Grotusque as a HasbroToyShop/Toys R Us exclusive. It was released on HasbroToyShop first and now the Toys 'R' Us web site has posted a listing on its web site! The item is not yet in stock but keep checking to get your hands on this awesome exclusive. Want to see how awesome he is?
The artwork of Ken Christiansen is well known to fans of the "Generations" and "Platinum" lines where his artwork has graced Hasbro packaging for years. With the release of "Titans Return" Grotusque, Ken was cool enough to share concept/design art for Grotusque's beast mode! Check out the art and his original post embedded below.
