    It's been a while since we got Universe Cyclonus with his targetmaster Nightstick, but I can't help but notice the amount of targetmaster minicons we are getting with the PCC figures. I think Hasbro would take a step in the right direction if they'd release more targetmaster sets. Honestly all they'd have to do is repaints released with new minicon sized targetmasters to make it work.


    Really all they have to do is make some new minicon molds and do some slight retooling and we'll have a good portion of the targetmasters.

    Inferno into Artfire
    Jazz into Ricochet
    Blurr re-released with Haywire
    Rodimus with Firebolt
    Kup with Recoil


    Scourge with Fracas
    Straxus retooled into Quake
    Cyclonus retooled into Triggerhappy

    Then they could do some new deluxe molds and pair them with previously released targetmasters that are repainted/remolded.

    Then they could release standalone minicon targetmaster sets the different minicons just in various paint schemes to make even more characters, we'd have targetmasters and Hasbro would make a profit.

    Am I the only one who wants some targetmaster love?

    I would love some more targetmasters, just as long as the targetmasters themselves are done more in the style of Nightstick rather than the minicons that come with the PCC's.

    Definitely. I was just giving a nod to the fact that PCC actually has minicons as targetmasters. I still think minicon ports wouldnt hurt either, just so they have a way to store in alt mode and a way to be "holstered" when not in use in bot mode.

    I don't really want to own him twice.

    Just release his TM separately, thank you. :thumbs2:

    I'd rather FP make Fracas, Haywire and Recoil. They'd make them compatible with the Generation figures vehicle modes

    Targetmasters are fine, just so long as they're not those godawful repainted PCC mini-cons.
    Anyway, Headmasters are way cooler. :D

    Meh, Target masters... I'll buy them if they make them but they're not important. I'd rather have some cool super detailed guns like the ones FP made for Bruticus...

    No. Freakin'. Way. That mold is bland and never fit Blurr in the first place. They need to make a completely new mold with the targetmaster instead.

    I'd love to see new TMs come out. But I think weapon-only figures would be better done by third-party companies since Hasbro would likely make them as minicons and, well.. they tend to suck.

    Now if we're considering repaints for new characters, I'd say a Warpath repaint for Quake rather than Straxus since we already have Skullgrin.

    No I do too, and I like your ideas. But it'll never happen as the figures would cost too much with the additional figures/tooling for Targetmasters.

    I'm happy with Nightstick, Sidearm, the 5 United Targetmasters, and the upcoming Blesser and Stepper with Nebulon. :)

    I really would like more Targetmasters as well. I don't care for the PCC's, but I would love for FP to give us others such as Haywire, Recoil, and Fracas. As far as official ones, Tak/Tom Hasbro, fill your boots. :D

    This. The PCC Minicons suck big time.

    It isn't too bad if you paint it. Its more posable, and some of the mini's gun modes are pretty nice.
