    Titans return was my favourite line of the prime wars trilogy, though I wish I'd picked up a few of the Japanese Legends versions (Chromedome mainly) I even picked up the recent Retro Headmasters as I preferred those decos on most of the figures. But... I would still probably pick up new more accurate versions with better articulation of these characters in a WFC type of style.

    I'm pretty happy with the Decepticon Headmastets though, specifically the newer Retro decos, though admittedly Mindwipe is a little sketchy in terms of accuracy but I still find him really fun, especially with the old nonnef kits that added articulation to the ankles/wrists.

    I just find the figures so fun to mess with.

    Same here. Headmasters have always been one of my favorite gimmicks because it was essentially two figures in one with multiple play combinations. I loved that pretty much all the figures in the line from Leaders and Voyagers down to Deluxes and Legends all had cock pits where the Titan Masters, and later Prime Masters, could all ride around in. It was especially surprising on guys like Brawn, Beachcomber, and Tailgate. It really did become my favorite line of the Prime Wars for these reasons.

    Impressive work!
    one thing I never noticed with the manga panel is the Paint Brush held by Fortress(?) implying these are just literal repaints.

    I prefer the SS86 Kup for his alt mode and body but I will always like Titans Return Kup's face sculpt better. All it needs is a Cy-Gar.

    Hahah! Neat, I actually did not notice that when I first read that chapter
    I wished we could've get official repaints of these guys tho. Trying to find a used Full-Tilt for Sureshot is PAIN. I'm probably gonna use a modded Retro Hardhead for him...
