    I'd have to say for me, it'd be Cyclonus, Quake and Slugslinger. Wish I had any of those three. Not sure about the availability, but that's what the E of Bay and Junkion Exchange is for.

    Used to have misfire and slugslinger many years ago. I think I actually like misfire better.

    Oddly, I believe Misfire was either the last, or 2nd to last transformer I got as a child before i stopped collecting.

    Hardest and most expensive is TM Scourge, he was short packed. My favorite is still TM Hot Rod.

    Sixshot

    The One and Only Human sized Targestmaster minus the trigger crotch. :p 


    I don't own other Targetmasters except for Universe Cyclonus with Nightstick.

    I'd find it a tough call as far as a favorite/most popular among the three 87 new mold TMs. Usually I don't see one of them sell for far higher price than the others. All three have the weak clips on their TM partners so they're equally fragile.

    I like Triggerhappy's robot mode the best but I think Misfire has the coolest alt mode.

    Favorite? Probably Triggerhappy, for the giant gold engines and the X-Wing vibe his vehicle mode evokes.... though Misfire gets points for sheer magenta-ness.

    Most Popular? Hardest to come by? No idea.

    Triggerhappy, just because his jet mode look's so awesome! And he ain't too bad looking in robot mode either.

    Out of the three you named, i think Triggerhappy tends to be the most difficult to find in good condition.

    Most popular, don't know. But my personal favorite is Misfire.

    Triggerhappy would be my favorite of those three. I know Scourge was the hardest to get when I was collecting them ~5 years ago.

    The only one I have is Triggerhappy, so I guess that's my favorite by default.

    I would like to get Cyclonus and Scourge at some point, though.

    Misfire's my personal favorite, but that's mainly just because it's the only on I've had since childhood.

    I was able to get Slugslinger and Triggerhappy about six years ago and they're both fun as well. I'm missing the barrel for Caliburst...I need to track it down but it's hard as hell to just find that part :(

    When I was a kid I bought Slugslinger and Triggerhappy because I liked the long barrels on Caliburst and Blowpipe. And I passed up Misfire because Aimless didn't have one.

    And both of their hips broke the very first time I transformed them. :mad 

    Of the two of them, I think I like Slugslinger more, but only slightly. I do remember that he's the one I bought first, so he had something going for him.

    I like all 3 new mold 1987 targetmasters. because there very poseable & are highly sculpted.

    if i had to choose it would be triggerhappy.
