    You know with the new lineup of Generations toys coming out, there is pleanty of opportunity for Shootermaster partners for these toys IF they don't come with their partners from Hasbro...

    Generations Arcee - Daniel
    Generations Brainstorm - Arcana
    Generations Doubledealer - Knok
    Generations Hardhead - Duros
    Generations Nightbeat - Muzzle (also works with the old TFCC exclusive Nightbeat)

    Also, the coming X2 Toys Overlord head for Doubledealer could use Mega and Giga.

    For some guys who already exist, Sideswipe, Tracks and Shockwave all had drone partners from their Action Master days. Who not make guns based on Vanguard, Baser and Fist-Fight for the Universe Sideswipe, RTS Tracks and Generations Shockwave toys?

    For an older toys...

    How about the yellow partner for Cybertron Quickmix as he only comes with the blue Partner?

    How about a partner for Generations Warpath that comes with a lance accessory?

    Taking a page from Perfect Effect, how about Shootermasters that are colored like Rumble, Frenzy, Rewind and Eject for use by the FOC Soundwave and Blaster toys? Much better than those horrid spring loaded disks!

    Beside Doubledealer, when are the rest of the generation toys listed coming out? Haven't seen pictures or confirmation they will be actually happening. Is there a link?

    I would only want the ones for the Targetmasters. I don't want Targetmasters of characters that were supposed to be Headmasters or Powermasters.

    That makes one of us. I'd rather have a little dude that becomes a gun than a head or an engine. That's why I have MSC's High-Que and Revaway, Powermasters turned Targetmasters!

    They even mention in the bios for the characters that they was basically the human characters from Masterforce, who used to be the Godmasters, but after their Transtectors came to like converted to become the weapons. So there is unofficial fiction explaining their forms.

    Targetmasters were my favorite gimmick out of the three, sure, but I also want the character to be properly represented with the correct gimmick. To each their own.

    Well, when someone wants to make an engine for movie Breakaway, that's cool too. I'll give him a gun that turns into his Nebulan.

    Just thought of another one... That movie Highbrow toy that was a bomber, someone could make a Targetmaster partner for him that looks like Gort!

    I just realized that Pinnacle and Firebox's bios on the Charticon Aftershock box is different from that main Ground Shakers card.

    On the Ground Shakers card Pinnacle is afraid of heights, and Firebox is a hot headed female.

    In Aftershock's bio Pinnacle is a failed circus performer, and Firebox is a pimp.

    Transformations should be updated. A lot of the mini transformers out there seem so detiled now. Would love target masters given that treatment.

    Only saw the first page... Hi Q and Bolt action look good!

    Captured Prey decided to ignore the official bios and make their own. They actually printed up new cards and replaced the ones from MasterShooter. Since they didn't forward the official ones to Charticon, they had to make up their own as well.

    I'm not getting into that discussion, because it's not something for public consumption, but it's not a case of ignoring the official bios. However, that's a situation that should remain where it belongs, and that is between myself and MSC.

    Anyways, I just paired Charticon Unleaded with PotP Dreadwind. They work great.
