    Wait wait wait wait what.

    Kup and Hot Rod are listed as targetmasters. I need to see this, beyond the original need to see it anyway.

    I wonder if they just come with an additional vehicle like the headmaster but with and extra Titanmaster? Theres no way in hell the removed the TM gimmick. It's possible on Hot Rod but not Kup.

    Also, guess I need to pick up a second Sharticon so the Legends version can be their leader, and I'll stick this Sweep head on my main Scourge.

    Finally! Curious what the Sweep is that's coming with Gnaw. Just a repack of the Scourge head?

    And specifically calling Hot Rod and Kup Targetmasters is very interesting. Retooled perhaps? That would be fantastic, though I'd be bummed that we didn't get the same treatment for Blurr and Scourge.

    Holy shit. Finally some more Legends releases. Too bad I don't actually want Hot Rod or Kup. It is odd that they're labelled as targetmasters. I'm curious to see the final product.

    Sweep & Sharkticon one seems interesting though. Sounds tailor made for people who troopbuild.

    Sweep is probably Ptero aka Swoop

    I doubt it. The katakana says "Suiipusu" (スウィープス), which is the Japanese name for Sweep(s) (I'm pretty sure the Japanese name doesn't change between singular and plural form even though it technically could, especially since it's written in katakana). The Japanese name for Swoop is "Suwaapu" (スワープ).

    IF the existing Headmasters get made into Targetmasters (but I have a feeling all they're doing is just changing the name and nothing else, so don't keep your hopes up), then it'd stand to reason that they might make a Scourge with a Targetmaster instead of a Headmaster and therefore sell the head as a separate piece.

    But I have another, more logical hypothesis: that it is literally Scourge's Headmaster done as a regular Sweep, designed to be a troupe-builder, especially considering it's packed in with the Sharkticon, another troupe-builder itself.

    Another theory i have, is this will be a clean shaven version like the recent devcon on the multipack exclusive 3pack with cyclonus. So if this truly is clean shaven scourge i might have to import since malaysia hasbro is allergic to money lately.

    Both HotRod & Kup will probably be musthaves.

    Anyway, this is Takara's start of a long TR catch up.

    Quite possibly, yes, as that mould exists now and they want to make it different to Scourge.

    Hasbro (or at least their shitty Australasian distributors) are allergic to money here in New Zealand too, and it's ironically cheaper to import the Japanese toys anyway, so I almost exclusively buy my Transformers from Japan now... which is a problem when TakaraTomy decide not to release half of the Titans Return line forever and ever.

    Are those prices wholesale? They look lower than some of the recent Yen prices I've seen. HLJ has had Legends legends RRP at ¥1,800 and Legends deluxe at either ¥4,000 (with Titanmaster accesory) or ¥3,200 (without)

    Transformers Legends | HobbyLink Japan

    The prices look similar to HLJs discounted prices for legends and deluxe, no accessory.

    Kup could do with having his colours tweaked MASSIVELY.

    Hot Rod I'd be happy to loose the grey on the Titanmaster and deluxe robot body for red.

    Going by the MSRP, the "Sweeps" packed with the legends class Sharkticon is very likely a head/titanmaster.

    And will likely be one of these guys.

    Considering a store posted what appears to be a photo of a computer screen with those prices, I think it's safe to assume that they are indeed wholesale prices. The RRP is ¥1800 (a ¥500 markup), and since HLJ's price is ¥1440 for the Legends Class figures with a Titanmaster, that means their markup would be ¥140. That sounds about right to me.
