Of course this happens RIGHT after I've made/bought a dozen or so targetmasters but...
Dude, TARGET MASTERS.
You can NEVER have enough target masters^_^
As long as they aren't insanely expensive they shall be mine! *insert evil laugh*
DethPike
When are the other/first 3 coming? I gotta have "Shot Piece".
jerminator
No doubt. I'm hoping that those will be part of the preorders too.

Good news! Preorders should be going up within a couple of days! Stay tuned!
WarConvoy
I love Target Masters. I hope their finished product is as good as FP.

I'm interested but why are they so cartoony looking?

That's kinda how I feel. Their last outing was ok, but felt really light... So unless the prototypes for these look awesome, I may skip them.

Good. I look forward to seeing the final product and reading some reviews. I need Targetmasters for my G1 re-issue Hot Rod and vintage Kup.
Murasame
Where can I order this? And do they work for Classics Rodimus?
G1Prowl
I guess my main question is about the ones that are being made for figs with NO update yet. Will the handles fit any Classics style fig, since I'm customing up my own Pointblank?
DecepticonSpike
Targetmaster partners for my Classics Hot Rod, Kup, and Scourge!
ORIO
I like. Although, the names aren't as creative as the 1st ones. :

Still, preordered in a heartbeat
Murasame
Where do you pre-order?
megatroptimus
I would like to see a Shockwave Targetmaster first...
Scaleface
One little problem with the names, they changed them so they wouldn't be the names Hasbro used, but Pinpointed changed to "Pin Point" is basically the same thing that Hasbro did with their Mini-Con Pinpoint.
Scantron
Very nice. I think I'll probably be getting all of these.
Robogeek28
Goddammit there's just too much stuff coming out nowadays.


They do look really nice though.
Girl Pants
These are the same people who made Mega Gun and Brown King, right? I really like my Brown King, he's a nice "Classics Browning". I'm interested in getting some of these, despite not having most of the G1 or classics toys to put them with.

I think just have to get Shot Piece for the name alone, naturally.

Hmmm... might have to go pick up some junker Targetmasters and get these guys to finish 'em off-

I was referring to the names of this third party group's target masters. Ie;Shot piece
juxtapose519
I agree with the "cartoony" comments. They also look a little too "round" to me.

Is it really that different from the original toy?

You didn't make a mistake, I was just saying that their choice for a name of "Pin Point" is the name of a Mini-Con. YOu think they would give it a non-Hasbro name as a substitute.
Sonscreen
I like the clever names.

The handles will fit almost any figure with a standard 4mm or 5mm hand. There may be some rare cases where certain newer figures with "open" hands have issues, but that is very rare.

That will depend on who chooses to carry them once they get solicited. I can guarantee that anything they don't do as an exclusive with a specific store will be offered through Captured Prey though.

These guys looks pretty neat!
Scaleface
Some of the original Targetmasters were not that great looking either. Even humanoid is a step up from blockoid.

Aimless vs. No Aim



Blowpipe looks good too.

Scaleface
I hope we see revesed color versions for any toys that have Shattered Glass characters. Rodimus, Scourge, Crosshairs, Blurr, etc.
Foster
Are they compatible with the G1 large Targetmasters?
Scaleface
The G1 Targetmaster all used standard 5mm holes, I believe.

I'm glad too see my plea answered.



and we got...

twiztidRodimus
Will they be in three packs? Or seperate

From talking with MS, they are intended to be in 3-packs, and I believe the first four are going to be a four-pack. There may also be additional 2-packs or singles that have not been announced yet.
Snoopy Magnus
so is it bad that i am more excited and anxious about getting my hands on these that half of the botcon stuff that we have seen already? and the fact that these are 3rd party little guys too?
DJW107PRIME
cool
brr-icy
looking good, might have to get a set
CodeXCDM
Aw... they renamed them?

Shot Piece was an *awesome* name for Kup's Target Master!

Hope they're a bit more affordable than the Mega Gun and Brown King pair though. If the figures sold at around 10$ each that'd be great. Absolute buy.

No, they are still making the four they announced before, including Shot Piece, this is an additional six more Targetmas... I mean Mastershooters! There were a lot of G1 Targetmaster toys they need partners.
Yobuster
Hahaha i totally love the names they gave these little guys and the "descriptive" piece under their names. It's just enough to remind us their actual G1 names and their respective partners. I totally love it.

So the question is, from whom should i order them from and when?
Necro Prime
I am so stoked for these. The Megatron one they started with was good. And the quality of these definitely looks better. And they are far cheaper than the takara exclusives, with accurate coloration to boot.

You are not alone. I'm more excited about finally having Targetmasters for my G1 Kup and Hot Rod than I am about anything announced at BotCon at all.
Scaleface
Yeah, that's where I'll be watching.

I wonder once they make replacements for the original Targetmasters, maybe make ones for the Double Targetmasters too, what is on the agenda? Maybe a tiny Shockwave? Or Targetmasters for Classic toys that never had one? I'd be game for those.
Megatron31
Cool. Are the color schemes gonna be like the renderings?
Thundershot
These would be great for Classics versions of the characters they go with...

...if they had them. I'll get them anyway "just in case". The other four are a higher priority though.

The double targetmasters REALLY need updates. They look so cool with all the details and molded weapons but suck because of lack of posability.

But again, they don't have partners (though we may get Spinister this year).

Well, I'm biased as to where you should order from (me!) of course, but...very soon!

And I wouldn't be surprised if some variants of these show up with colorations to match at least some of the double-Targetmasters. In fact, I know a certain store that is very likely to have ones that would be a perfect match to Spinister and Quake...
BScorpinok75
WHEN? WHERE? and HOW MUCH?
TheDevastator
They all look pretty cool, but I'm a bit disappointed in the lack of differences between the figures. There are basically two or three unique designs for each part and they mixed and matched those parts to make new figures. Sure the gun barrels are different, but the heads are all the same. It was done save money, but making ten different characters out of less than three unique molds seems a bit repetitive. I know this has been brought up before and I don't really mean any ill will towards the designer(s), but it's hard to keep getting excited about these.

*salutes* I'll gladly buy them from you the moment you have them up for sale ^_^
Also-ooo double target-masters
Cal
I love Targetmasters, but part of that appeal comes from being able to store on their partner's alt mode. Targetmasters by themselves are like Headmasters without a body. I've got better things to invest my money in.
