    I think we can pretty much count on getting TT Decepticon Target Masters, especially if their versions of Kup and Hot Rod do well.

    I'm hoping they'll include Targetmasters for Scourge and Blurr with Triggerhappy and Misfire or whoever.

    Hmm, so I wasn't too high on these guys originally, but I finally took some time to look them over. I like the Kup quite a lot, and will get him. I used to like Hot Rod more, but now I'm liking Kup a lot as well. There may be some psycho analytic thing going on where as I am getting older I am preferring the grisled veteran versus the young upstart, but overall I like Takara's new Kup design and paint scheme a lot. I'm not quite as impressed with Hot Rod, but I may get one of him as well. The Targetmaster gimmick is very cool.

    titans return Megatron is the first voyager g1 Megatron since the original nerf gun and considering its unlikely he will appear in legends I could see a few Imports just for him

    he means g1 style, however if you want to get into all the g1 versions outside of the 80s, he was a tank in G2 (same megatron, same continuity), he is a tank in idw, he is a tank in the combiner wars cartoon, he is a tank in devastation, he was a weird hover tank thingy in the high moon games which are arguably g1 styled, he has at least four tank figures in the overall classics/universe/generations line which is essentially a rebooted g1.

    all of those are technically g1 megatron;)  but im sure he just meant the look of the robot mode.

    Honestly I don't care about any G1 media rehash after 1987, none of it IMO is true original G1. With exception the the Japanese continuation of the original toon, but even then there's some silliness I've seen like Planet Galvatron...

    Nah, Trypticon is due at the end of August. These 3 are due at the end of September.

    Hopefully October, November, and December see several Legends releases though. :)

    The planet Galvatron thing was just Galvatron imagining what he'd become. It didn't actually happen

    One COULD also fan canon TR voyager Megatron as being related to this guy, especially if we get the Optimus Prime solo Titanmaster head:

    That would work really well with Megatron's shoulder hole and the seat in the gun.

    Yeah, I'm actually kind of wanting E-HObby to do this now.

    Funny enough, I was just starting on a custom of Reverse Convoy using Hardhead.

    Hardhead works too but It's Megatron cosplaying as Convoy he should be a voyager in my opinion.

    I mainly chose Hardhead because it looks more like the original, in my opinion.

    This Kup, Hasbro's Kup, and TR or LG Blitzwing will likely be the last Transformers I buy going forward, barring fun little Legends class figures. I just can't afford this hobby anymore sadly, owing to medical and other circumstances.

    But I'm not bummed. I've had a ton of fun and fond memories, and will be donating the proceeds from selling off some of my collection to the St Anthony's Foundation, so it's a positive thing ultimately. :)  I'm super psyched to finally have a Kup coming, though. He was one of my faves as a kid in the 80s, and it's a fitting way to end, together with Blitzwing, one of the first TFs I ever had as a child. :D 

    Weep not for me (lmao :p ) I'm content.
