    This is a work (english version come when the french is finish) i made because i'm a fan of the canonmasters, the toys of my childhood.
    i use the pics of the gallery of TFW2005 ( i asked the agree before dont worry) and somes pics friends take for me....
    all the pages is made on photoshop by myself
    we have two versions for now ( normal in full color and light for ink economy)
    when the files is finish it count 68 pages
    this is in process, so i add pages after pages in this thread
    (sorry for my poor english)
    i hope you like this

    "voila un petit projet en cours
    je monte le (et bientot "les") dossier sur les transformers européen
    evidemment c'est du fait maison par un amateur (moi en l'occurence) qui n'a aucune notion de la maquette typique d'un magasine
    donc ne vous etonnez pas si la mise en page peut parraitre etrange d'ailleurs ce dossier n'a ete fait que dans un but ludique et non lucratif
    j'ai commencer par les CanonMasters, "exclus" européene de 91/92 (les Turbomasters contre les Predators) ceux qui sont nés dans les années 80 se souviennent peut etre des voitures et helico et camion autobot aux missiles jaunes et aux vitres rose fluos et leur ennemis les avions et tank-lance fusée aux missiles vert et cockpit vert fluos
    donc ce premier dossier traiteras de ces derniers
    (j'editerais ce post pour donner un lien qui fourniras la totalité du dossier une fois fini)

    les photos presentes sur les pages appartiennent a Sol fury sur TFW2005 (voir le sujet que j'ai ouvert la bas: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?p=1868684#post1868684

    Hey there neighbor,

    no offense, but the correct name would be "Cannonmasters", with a double "n". :) 

    Was that name actually used on the French/Dutch packaging? All I know is that the Predators were called "Scope Masters" in the French/Dutch version.

    i call the two groupe (scopemasters aka the decepticons Predators and autobots turbomaster) in one groupe name Canonmasters because all of these have the same gimmick , their weapons....Canon with missiles (with one "n")

    and i have 9/12 canonmasters and 4 of these from france and is "predators" and "turbomasters" on packaging
    ;) 

    when i make the page pages 59 and 60 i add a board with the name variations, so wait and see :)

    Were these ever released in the US? The blue, red and white cars all look really cool, I don't believe I've seen them before. What kind of prices do they fetch? Or, what are their names, so I can do some research myself?

    No, these came out in 1991-92 when the line was dead in the US. They got released in most other areas, though.

    Names are:

    Scorch (yellow van), Boss (Batmobile), Hurricane (white racer), Flash (red pickup), Rotorstorm (blue badass helicopter) and Thunderclash (truck trailer)

    Decepticons were Snare, Talon, Falcon, Skydive, Stalker (the tank) and Skyquake (the flippin' huge jet!)

    Canon is not a firearm. Cannon is a firearm. Hence, CannonMasters.

    Canon is something different than cannon, at least in English. :) 

    I see that it's "canon" in old French, though. Not sure about modern French.

    But "Canonmasters" would essentially be half English, half French. :)

    I have Rotorstorm and Flash from the Turbomasters (what they where called here) and Stalker, Falcon and Tellon from the Pred's. They where a nice G2 serise, but the Predators suffered from GPS in there cannons which really sucked.

    to razorclaw: i know but i use the french word for it "canon" with one "n" i combine it with the english word master because "maitres des canons" is not sound good but i understand you not like that (and use this hybrid terme=not recreate the first page for english version :p )
    http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_%28artillerie%29

    for rodr-evil: it not a official catalog, it is a fan-made files :) 

    for deltasnake: i prefer class it in G1.5 because those toys are definitively hybrids between G1 and G2
    they have: G1 articulation, LOGO. and G2 colors, gimmicks

    you know those toys are the first to have the pipelight? (i need a confirmation)

    I *think* they were the first toys to feature a light-piping gimmick. Unfortunately we have no article for that gimmick on the Wiki yet.

    I believe they are the first *Transformers* to use the gimmick. The same designer at Takara more than likely was also working on Da Garn, which came out first (from my perspective, Feb 1992 VS early spring 1992). Da Garn has a very similar aesthetic and also makes great use of light piped eyes.

    And yeah, I think they're generally considered G1.5. I'd definitely call them G1, as they were still adorned with the original faction insignias. G2 was when they started to tamp the insignia and faction name onto the figures, and the Turbomasters and Predators didn't have that.
