    With FP releasing Sidearm for $10, I can't say that I'm surprised. Though the design looks good, I can't see spending $30+ for a Target master.

    That's a shame. I have to say that I'm lukewarm with FP's Sidearm and was looking forward to this as a replacement.

    A mere 200-preorders? Surely that load could be spread overseas to TFsource, BBTS and the like. I know, pending better photos, I'd buy at least one or two. Maybe more.

    That does look neat, any point in taking a vote to see how many peeps would be interested?

    I just can't see myself picking this up. Sidearm is more than good enough for me honestly. I love that other 3rd parties are trying to put out TM related products but even if this did get released I think I would stick with Sidearm. The fact of the matter is we as fans have been spoiled with a $10 TM release and the thought of paying more, potentially in excess of $30 puts most of us (myself included) off from buying it. :(

    Didn't read the whole thread- I'm curious if people would call this a KO?

    However, I came across this a few nights ago while doing research for me to make my own from Nightstick. This is a good design.

    Whichever Targetmaster that's supposed to be looks really good. As large as it is, I would expect it to cost more than FP's Sidearm. Around $35 seems a bit steep for a Targetmaster though :(  (granted, I think $35 for Shadow Warrior is steep.)

    Not that I know of. Red Leader edited some of his posts on 6/23/2011 and appears to have removed some info. Not sure if that is due to cancellation of this project or what.

    I hear MasterShooter Collectibles is working on some gun robots for Rodimus, Kup, Blurr, and Scourge.

    As long as they're in scale with Nightstick and Sidearm/Firebolt (I love him, so I'd buy semi-accurate Targetmasters for Kup, Blurr, and Scourge)

    I sooooo hope that's true. My classics can't get enough upgrades.

    Is there any source where I can read about that or maybe pics? Yesterday I was looking on shapeways, but I did not find anything. Even a replica of his G1 gun would be great. But a fine targetmaster would be also cool, if not better when done correctly!
