    So Kup's still the wrong colour. In fact he's even more the wrong colour now.

    Also Hot Rod looks really dang gaudy. But that Sweep head is amazing.

    Excellent find! To the front! Are the Targetmasters new or previous molds?

    Holy sh*t, YES!

    Kup is grayer than I would have wanted but Hot Rod looks fantastic and I wasn't expecting them to come with ACTUAL Targetmasters at all.

    Preordering these on sight!

    Would have to get a size comparison against the MP target masters. Clearly not the Hasbro molds.

    Takara took so long with revealing their version of Kup that he died of old age... RIP Kup.

    But seriously, why is he grey?

    I really hoped when these were listed as targetmasters that they might have engineered them and given the parts forming the boot. Sad to see that's not the case. New head on Kup looks good but seriously why is he a corpse?

    I was wondering about this, has a grey alternate deco been established for Kup in any fiction or is it just a personal preference/want @DarkEyes?

    These are actually retooled! Hot Rod's chest is new, there's a flap covering the engine block in robot mode now, and the front looks different in vehicle mode too. Kup's arms are entirely new (as is his head) better proportions and no more hollowness.

    And the actual Targetmasters... awesome! I wish Kup had his movie colors though.

    I actually think those are remolds of the new Targetmaster that comes with MP Artfire. They look similar?

    The new headsculpt on Kup is perfect. Absolutely perfect.

    The Targetmasters for both are perfect.

    The color schemes are way, way off. Really disappointed that Takara went with grey for Kup instead 1986 movie teal. Hot Rod looks way too gaudy. That chest flame is ugly as hell.

    His G1 cartoon appearance was often more gray than teal.

    These look awesome, damn you Takara! I'll move the old CHUG Kup to my Wreckers shelf, but what to do with Hot Rod?

    Hot Rod's chest / front of car is also remoulded. The engine flips round to give him a flat, orange panel in robot mode and the front of the car that folds in, on the Hasbro version, now seems to be gone, with just a solid, one-piece front to the car.
