    All three of them kinda suck, to be honest. The only decent one is Peaceman (what sort of a name is that?), while Fracas doesn't even work well with Scourge, and Aimless is pointless.

    I'm not sure I'd want a "Targetmaster" partner called Aimless - that's just asking for trouble.

    Peaceman = Peacemaker?

    Sounds like a name substitution. It continues the trend of releasing the PCC Mini-cons as Targetmasters, though none of them really fit the bill.

    I do find it ironic though that Peaceman / maker is a double headed axe, and Aimless is a drill - something you'd very much hope could be aimed!

    I think that was the joke back in 1987. Misfire and Aimless were Targetmasters who couldn't hit what the wanted, they just fired randomly hoping to hit an enemy.

    Peaceman was his Japanese name in 1987.

    A drill as a gun is no worse than, for instance, Animated Bumblebee's stingers.

    He turns into a cattle catcher for a tank.

    I made better Targetmasters from PCC Minicons for my "Classics" Quake... These don't even resemble the G1 originals in color.

    Pardon me for begin blunt, but these suck. Not only are they barely tangentially related to Tformers Prime (not having been created for that show specifically, but instead are insulting repaints), but the paint jobs, character names, and everything else about these are just L-A-C-K-luster.

    Well, they are free toys, you know? You don't even have to take them when offered from store clerks if you don't want them;)

    Oh I know, and pardon the overt bluntness. I'm really not a glass is half empty type normally. I just can't abide lazy repaints/renames, just to get more product into fans hands (or pockets, in this case). I respect Takara and the product they turn out, so when I see stuff like this...I guess I put my finger to the tip of my nose and turn it slightly upwards, to resemble the Tformers snob I must sound like. :D

    I like to see homages, and they probably have to repaint the Mini-Cons as store offers, what else can they give away... so it's either repaint them and call them Targetmaster names, or repaint them and give them new names. Which is better?

    Hopefully BBTS is able to get some in like the United ones? Otherwise there's always Bodhar.

    I've been bitten by the minicon bug, so I'll probably go after these. Peacemaker looks nice. I still need to pick up three of those United redecoes.
