    In all honesty just decide which of their jet modes looks the coolest, and then get that one. Each figure is awesome - and since it appears that you plan to get all of them you really can't go wrong. Slugslinger is my personal favorite, though: awesome jet mode, retractable landing gear, and a quick yet functional transformation. Caliburst is also a kick-ass Targetmaster gun.

    According to my experience with these, I'd go in the following order:

    1. Slugslinger - Hardest to find minty because he has a tendancy to yellow + Target master barrel tends to get lost
    2. Triggerhappy - Very sought after and Target master barrel tends to get lost as well
    3. Misfire - Seems to be the less sought after one from what I've seen in the past.

    Just got a really really nice Slugslinger today in the mail as a matter of fact, off of ebay. I'd say go with that one first for reasons stated above and for sheer win factor, at least with mine that is. Next up for me is Triggerhappy. So yeah I'd say that's a good order.

    Triggerhappy is my personal favourite, followed by slugslinger and then misfire! You have to also limit the amount of times you transform their guns, the joints very notorious for snapping for this particular reason you should only be interested with the highest quality available !

    Whichever you see the best deal on first. Sounds like you're going to get them all eventually, so why not let money decide?

    Slugslinger is pretty cool, though I personally think Triggerhappy is the cooler looking one overall and I really like the look of Misfire's jet mode. Real robots wear pink.

    I think this is very accurate.

    All three look cool so you can loose. Unlike their autobot counterparts.

    I like Misfire best. His robot mode is a more solid shape but still has good articulation for G1. Aimless is made of a weak material and gets too much stress on the hips when bending over to form the gun. The jet mode is also my favourite of the three with the only thing lacking being an opening canopy (the canopy seems big enough to accommodate a Nebulon).

    Agree! I am also looking for Slugslinger with Targetmaster, with the little hope that it does not have serious stressmark

    TM for the WIN [​IMG]

    All of them stickers unused and in untouched condition.

    I agree with G1 Junkie as I have hade them all loose aswell. Just a tip is that the hips on the deceopticon TM are very fragile and have a easy tendasy to break, especially Misfires TM. Just be careful and dont transforme them to often.

    Du-ude! That is bloody astounding. Well done indeed Swedish Sir.

    Of those, my preference is for Triggerhappy. Probably because I had him as a kid. Although I do like Misfire's jet mode for some reason...

    I don't order transformers. If I know I want all three I just look for the best deal. Slugslinger and Triggerhappy are harder to find mint and complete because of yellowing and the barrels though. Curiously enough I have them but not Misfire.

    Wow! I own every single one of them but seeing them in their original packaging makes them look a 100 times better, awesome stuff, my eyes are green with envy!
