Transformers Titanium was introduced in 2006 as a sub-line of the existing Transformers toy line that was expanded from Star Wars. Originally developed under Hasbro’s Galoob brand as a subdivision of Micro Machines, this line was expanded into Battlestar Galactica, Marvel and finally Transformers.
Seen as a bold move, this sub-line features two class types that consists of 3 inch which is non-transformable and the 6 inch which is transformable, about the size of a standard deluxe class.
The characters that was made part of this toy line spanned across all other Transformers lines making it a ‘Transformers Universe’ of their own with a difference – partially plastic and die-cast.
The composition of the of toy lines that was absorbed in this line includes Generation 1, Beast Wars, Beast Machines, Robots In Disguise, Alternators, Energon, Cybertron, Movie and Don Figueroa’s comic adaptations such as War Within and Transformers/G.I.Joe Crossovers.
Titaniums are not engineered by TakaraTomy and the die-cast metals are not made of titanium.
