    I mean ppl were saying Doublecross's TM was actually Blurr's or somebody else's, Nightstick and Fracas is completely confusing, I've read up a lil bit via TFwiki but at the end of the day was hoping for a cheat sheet-type quick blurb ... worse-case, thy keep the TM's they're packaged with, I'll live ...

    In the Japanese series only crosshairs sure shot and pointblank were autobot target masters

    On the con side only misfire , trigger happy , slugslnger were target masters

    Only 3 on each side

    So if you are doing a Jpns shelf you would actually take away the target masters from Kup, hotrod and double cross and give them to no one

    Artfire and Stepper were also Targetmasters in the Japan. But only appeared in the manga. They had the same Targetmasters as Scourge and Cyclonus, where Artfire received Fracas (named Nightstick) and Stepper Nightstick (named Nebulon).

    Cyclonus and Scourge weren't Targetmasters in the Japanese fiction like Kup, Blurr, and Hot Rod.

    Kup and Hot Rod later became Targetmasters in the TF Collection reissue line, when their reissues came with their Targetmasters.

    Cyclonus became a Targetmaster in the Japanese series during Henkei! Henkei! His Targetmaster was named Nightstick.

    Blurr, Kup, Hot Rod / Rodimus Prime, and Scourge had store campaign Targetmasters released for them via the United line. Effectively making everyone of them a Targetmaster (or sorts) by that point.

    Then there are obviously the Legends releases, which then adds Doublecross as a Targetmaster as well.

    What a confusing pathway to targetmasterism. Thanks for sharing.

    Put my preorder in for all but Octane. Unless LG Octane looks significantly more impressive, TR Octone will do just fine. All that's left for me is MP-10B and I think I'm done with imports for the rest of the year.

    I have to admit, I'm not particularly happy that I'm gonna end up paying for that friggin Bumblebee just to get Spike (assuming that it will be the Cerebros head, which I think we all figure). But man, just the idea option between speaks to the strength of the Headmaster gimmick when done right.

    LG Octane appears to come with a second Headmaster that looks like Ghost Starscream.

    first post updated with new pics

    I'm really liking the look of Bumblebee and the spike exo suit, wonder if the back of it is a Cerebros face .. Octane looks to have a ghost titan master figure that looks like Starscream too

    Slugslinger looks incredible. I'll pick up Bumblebee for that Spike TM, and hopefully we'll get a pic of the face on his back soon

    No new face for Slugslinger? The hell?!

    It looks completely different in the cartoon!

    Well, that's a bummer to say the least. Guess I only get Triggerhappy now and skip the other two...

    Not impressed by Bumblebee or Perceptor, Octane is a real winner though. Looks much better than Hasbro's and the translucent Starscream Headmaster is great!
