I am not a fan of the idea or implementation of Headmasters. So the current line, excepting the Legends class, has far less appeal for me than Combiner Wars (which was my favorite), Thrilling 30, or Fall of Cybertron, or the regular Generations/ Classics line. There are two reasons for this. The first is that I find the very idea that a big, heavily armored and armed mechanical being would share it's head with a smaller, weaker creature, whether it was carbon-based or mechanical to be ridiculous. This is because in a war, one headshot, while difficult, would kill both creatures. So it's a liability from a tactical standpoint. The second, and this more closely relates to the toys, is that if you lose the Head- or Titanmaster, you have a headless, incomplete figure that only looks okay in one form (its alt-mode). By contrast, with Combiner Wars, you could ignore the "combiner" aspect of the figure if you really wanted to and just enjoy your figure as a stand-alone toy. With Titans Return, you have to detach the head if you want to convert the figure. Granted, you always have a place to put the figure the head converts into, but if that little figure breaks or gets lost, you are up the creek. That said, it was smart of Hasbro and TakTomy to sell separate spare heads. Headmasters are what caused me to lose interest in Transformers when I was a teenager (that, and other competing interests) and I sold my collection. It wasn't until RID'01 that I got back into collecting. Lest you think that I am talking out of my posterior without evidence, I do own the following Titans Return figures, ranked in order that I like them from best to worst, IMHO: 1. Leader Blaster:This guy is fun with his three modes, and I almost don't have to remove the Titanmaster at all to hide his head. This is only my second Blaster figure, so he was always a must buy. 2. Legends Rumble: This is my first figure of Rumble, ever. I'm glad he has an alt mode other than his tablet mode, and actually has arms that convert into something like piledrivers. Of course, the other thing that I like is that he doesn't need a Titanmaster to function properly. 3. Legends Rewind: Not my first Rewind, but everything that I said about Rumble applies to this guy, excpet the piledrivers. 4. Legends Laserbeak: This guy has better colors and stickers than Buzzsaw, and Buzzsaw was a decent, cheap toy. The spiky skateboard is weird, but the tablet mode looks good and the bird mode is okay enough. (updated) 5. Deluxe Scourge: Scourge shouldn't have to be a Titanmaster. That said, this figure is pretty decent and much easier to convert than my Generations Scourge, and still has two weapons and some interesting stuff that you can do with the Titanmaster besides putting it in the cockpit in vehicle mode. 6. Deluxe Skullsmasher (Skullcruncher to me): Once I put clear nail polish on his hips to tighen up those joints, this is a decent figure that is a nice change of pace with his alligator beast mode. The rubbery cockpit cover and the fact that I had to polish his hip joints just to get him to stand keep this figure from rating any higher. 7. Legends Stripes: Glad I don't need a Titanmaster for this, but the cat and jet modes aren't very convincing. The cat mode in particular has too many gaps. Not looking forward to this as Ravage, but I'll probably get it anyway for completeness' sake for Soundwave. 8. Voyager Galvatron: Sigh. This is the best Classics-Generations Galvatron that we've gotten, but the Titanmaster gimmick ruins the robot mode, since the head and helmet won't turn and don't stay aligned. The gun should have been mounted on the side of his upper arm to impair posing less, but I can kinda live with it. I'm glad that we finally got a Galvatron in Voyager size, but this thing has too many flaws to be truly great. Such a missed opportunity. Oh, well. Yeah, I miss Combiner Wars. On the other hand, I know folks have been wanting new Headmaster figures ever since Generations Voyager Brainstorm (which I have) and before. I'm glad the folks that wanted new style Headmasters have got the toys they were asking for. Sadly, I don't think this line is really for me. I plan to pick up Laserbeak, Soundwave, Fort Max with the sword if/when I can afford it, and maybe a few others, mostly Decepticons. However, I can't get into Titans Return anywhere near as much as previous Generations lines. What is it that people like about the whole Headmaster/ Titans Return thing? I would like to hear specific things that folks like about the line and the figures, but also if anyone else shares my complaints about their drawbacks. What do you all thnk? Thanks for reading my rant. I needed to get that off of my chest.
