Jeez, third Toyless Guy Created For Fiction Who Now Gets A Toy in a row! Alpha Trion has kinda gotten toys before, whether they be PVC figurines or BotCon exclusives or what have you, but this is his first mass market North American transforming toy. That I have to use so many qualifiers should lampshade how many different little Alpha Trion items we've gotten.
Bizarrely enough, in lieu of replicating Alpha Trion's usual look that was introduced way back in the original cartoon, with the Floro Dery-esque geometry and the cape, TItans Return Alpha Trion instead homages two BotCon Alpha Trion toys -- one we didn't get and one we actually did. The one we didn't get was a redeco of Beast Machines Snarl -- a lion -- back in 2001, chosen because he was a robot mode with a beard. (Similar to how we got Arcee out of Blackarachnia because that was a Transformer toy that was a lady.) The one we did get was a Cybertron Vector Prime retool -- a spaceship -- with a new head in 2007. And so this Alpha Trion transforms into both a lion and a spaceship. It's like somebody from Hasbro wanted to find out what Alpha Trion turned into (he didn't in the original cartoon, as he was older than the invention of transformation) and saw on TFWiki that his two "real" toys turned into a lion and a spaceship respectively and that was that.
Titans Return Alpha Trion is a very clunky-looking toy, and it doesn't look particularly elegant. This seems to have turned a lot of folks off him at the outset, but in-hand, he's... well, he's still clunky-looking and inelegant, but he's fun to transform. He's just a doofy bearded robot that transforms into a blocky unikitty and a wedge that dubiously claims to be a spaceship. Like the other Titans Return toys, he has a little dude that transforms into his head, and there's a translucent compartment for him to ride in either mode, or he can sit in Alpha Trion's gun.
He's weird-lookin' but I like him.
