    Ah, Combiners, something I never really cared much for before Combiner Wars sunk its claws into me all those years ago. So while I was fiddling with the Seacons and putting together Scramble 7 I thought "what if he had an Autobot counterpart?". I decided the Technobots were the obvious choice for the Targetmasters, and the right arm, leg and left leg's Autobot counterparts were obvious as well, but that left me with a dilemma; who should be the left arm if not Strafe? After some thought I settled on POTP Moonracer because of the link with GS Tentakil. I give you, Scramble Superior! (Or some other, better name)

    I had a few too many figures that arrived with Lancer months ago, so I transformed her a couple times, assembled Orthia, put her on my Combiner shelf and haven’t touched them since. Boredom is setting in deep roots so it’s a perfect time to revisit under appreciated toys in my collection.

    I know, it’s the hideous standard configuration, forgive me. :)  D2B4C207-934A-419E-A89E-FA98AC2ECEA3.jpeg

    It’s weird, every time I look at Lancer’s face I see Grace Jones, I think it’s her cheekbones. Come to think of it she carried a lance in Red Sonja too. Coincidence?

    Yeah, probably. :D  2F6C65B8-549E-4856-8743-E98E6224172F.jpeg

    I have to Reprolabel Elita soon, every time I touch her, her decals curl a bit more. 0F5D05F2-5C9B-4541-956C-EB8AE2FC7EBF.jpeg

    I repro-ed all five these beauties. Elita's set give her some much needed pink details to break up the red and white.

    And for some damn reason, Lancer's set is the only one that doesn't come with ring stickers for her wheels and it drives me nuts.

    CW Cyclonus is my favorite Cyclonus. There, I said it and the healing can begin.

    I, of course, ditched the Silverbolt gun and gave him the Classics Nightstick.

    He nestles in under the nose like they were designed to be together.
    20200407_181231.jpg
    Also, the proportions make it look believable that he'd wield it. Most of the new targetmasters look like they blow a bicep tendon of they lift the gun too many times.

    The head sculpt is great. Just enough bunny ears to get the point across, but not too much to think he's got your Easter chocolates.
    20200407_181310.jpg
    Overall, a great figure that works great in the CHUG line up.

    The world really could use some rescuing right now.

    I don't know why I like this Inferno combiner "Firestormer" so much. Maybe it's because he was so unexpected. Maybe it's because I've felt free to put him together the way I wanted to and not in some predetermined configuration that got a lot of exposure back in the day.

    "Retroactively?" I've always loved Combiner Wars! Alpha Bravo, Offroad, and Rook are particularly awesome. :rock
