Here's another variant to add to the line, Gold Vader's Tie. The article doesn't state anything about being a treasure hunt but I'm sure that's what this is. This one actually has the clear plastic in the front.

I was looking through SSG's coverage of TF and it turns out that the golden Vader's Tie is a convention exclusive. The package has a sticker on it that states "2006 Convention Exclusive". One less thing to hunt for ;D.

Just starting a thread about the new to-be-released Titanium ships to be released so folks can sound off on their like/dislike.

Mine: Liked it ..alot! Really am looking forward to the multiyear expansion possibilities of this line.
Excited about the new(can someone identify the name of it?) ambassador ship for episode 1, new ROTS falcon? and blue A wing..the Tie interceptor rocks too. Okay, I EVEN like the Battlestar Galactica ships too ::)

200 Beans? :o  Pass.

Did find the CW gunship the other day.  I paid $5 for it.  About what it's worth.

Hopefully for me the gold tie will show up at CC for 9.99$-that would be at the Hasbro's booth right?

Yeah, that was Hasbro's booth.  For $9.99 I'd get one.   ;)

I'm having a hard time with this line.  I already have these from Action Fleet, so why bother repeating again?  But I do prefer the diecast and smaller scale of these over the larger, plastic Action Fleet versions.  In for two, in for them all?  I dunno yet.

Well I'll have to get 10 of these if possible(unless there's a limit). Also depends on what convention exclusive figure Hasbro's lays....on how many of these ships I buy.

Or did this ship replace a figure for the show exclusive this year...Hmmmm

What's up with the single TF ship????  I saw the packaging for the BG stuff and it's the same except for the label.  Are they just going to mix this one Autobot ship in with the SW or BG assortments or are there more Titanium TF's that I didn't see??

Found this blub from Tformers.com, but it doesn't really answer my quest:

HASBRO’S TITANIUM SERIES EXPANDS TO INCLUDE NEW OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD DIE-CAST VEHICLES AND FIGURES FROM STAR WARS, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA AND TRANSFORMERS

PAWTUCKET, R.I. (February 2006) – Intergalactic spaceships that are powerful enough to shuttle heroes and villains across a variety of sci-fi universes at the speed of light are now small enough to fit in your hand (or on your bookshelf). Hasbro, Inc.’s (NYSE: HAS), TITANIUM SERIES, a line of die-cast collectibles featuring intricate micro-detailing and action features, will be available nationally in early 2006 and is expanding to include new 3” vehicles, 3.75” figures and TRANSFORMERS robots!
