    I'm just gonna preemptively note that I'm only interested in Squeezeplay, so if someone wants to buy the other three, PM me.

    Definitely going to have to pick this up, but that tarn is not going to be long for my collection.

    Why does tarn have a red line across his face?

    the tarn looks like ass, but the rest of the set looks cool. Hopefully tarn isn’t too hard to get rid of.

    Am I the only one who thinks that red line across Tarn's face looks like the Joker's red lips?

    Man that headsculpt on Tarantulas is crisp. Tarn is looking better with each new set of pics too.

    Whoever picked the colors for Tarn as a Cyberverse homage needs to have their eyes checked.

    Why the red smile on Tarn's face?!? It's just so distracting.

    This may very well be the first of the 4pks that I would like and keep all 4 from. I like the look of all these deco’s and sculpts. I haven’t opened the Tarn I already own, so he can just stay MiSB I suppose. This Tarn looks quite nice to me.

    I skipped Legacy Tarantulas, I have the BW 10th Tarantulas, as well as both deco’s of his Beast Wars Transmetal toy, so this Orange Spider can just be someone else.

    Squeezeplay with Browning, gotta love any Masterforce stuff.

    Cliffjumper here is probably the one I am least attached to, given how little time he was alive in Prime. It’s great to see more another Cliffjumper that has a proper head, and isn’t just a Red Bumblebee redeco.

    I’m very curious to see how this mold is used next. G1 or Cybertron Downshift maybe, Armada Sideswipe, Universe Big Daddy, Nightracer, Live Action Bayverse-Bumblebee. Maybe Windcharger or Tailgate. Could see this being used for something from Transformers Animated as well.

    As silly as it sounds, Tarn really would have benefited from a VERY slightly different headsculpt to really pull off the Cyberverse look better. Something like the two Thundertrons.
    The big Joker smile is a feature of that Tarn, but it ought to be much thinner and more pink. Oh well, it'll make a decent Perfect Decepticon to be led by the original Tarn.

    Really glad that Squeezeplay isn't as yellow as some of the samples we had earlier. He's still a little yellow to match Masterforce, so it's about as good of a match as you can hope I guess. If it was a cold bone grey I'd have been fine too though.

    Design team must have looked up an old figure to use for color mapping and not realized the grey was yellowed. That's all I can think of. Unless they just wanted to get ahead of the curve...

    Okay real talk, why didn't they remove the claws and round attachment from Cliffjumper and instead give him double of what remains? He could have had dual guns by default then. (The base and the square attachment)

    Because that isn't how molds work. They can omit parts. They won't use the molds twice for one figure's parts though.

    I believe it’s because he’s that colour in the Masterforce anime, & Mark really wanted to nail down the animation accurate look.

    I’m fine with either tbh, but that’s why he has a newly tooled headmaster too to match the Japanese cartoon, rather than Fangry who was more toy inspired kept his original Titans Return Titan Master head.

    Anyone wanting to get rid of squeeze play please let me know. It's the only one from the set I want.
