    Fortress Maximus' feet were red in his initial showing, though that's about the only one I can think of

    Wow. Slugslinger looks just as great as Triggerhappy!! I don't like the color of Misfire's head. But I'll get him anyway and just paint it. Hnnn..I just wish all of these great figures were Voyager-sized!

    I am kinda disappointed. It took me awhile to realize that WAS Misfire at all. It doesn't look like the IDW character I'm used to. Otherwise this would be an insta-buy.

    The titan that is standing next to him while he is in vehicle mode has all pink legs while the titan master that's transformed into his head has black legs. Take a good look. That tells me these are test shots.

    I think you need your eyes checked. You can even see the pink TM legs on Misfire's head. I've circled them in green. It's the same Titan Master as the one next to the jet.

    I'm not saying Misfire won't have the pink head (I'm picking up the Legends version, who should have a black head either way) but I did notice the Full-Tilt on display at the Oz toy fair/meet had both a black and purple gun depending on which one you looked at (I think it was even pointed out that they're not sure which will be used for production)

    I'm not saying that's a guarantee things aren't set in stone for everything, but it's something to note at least.

    I always roll my eyes when people try to mock the 80's - 90's for their music and fashion.
    Especially kids with their critically aproved books, shows and movies, their bland songs and coolâ„¢ imago's.
    Grey must be such an awesome and respectable lifestyle :rolleyes:

    Slugslinger looks spot on, I'll be happy with the Hasbro version there. Not so thrilled with Misfire, I may have to wait on TT to get into gear with those. However, with the glacial pace of the TT releases compared to Hasbro, that could be next year at this point :/

    Looks great! Can hardly tell they are retools. I tend ot avoid retools (even for such a good mold). but these could get onto my maybe list. Plus one of them is from the MTMTE cast.

    Rescue Bots Boulder (the version with the dump truck alt mode) had tires the same color as the body in previews and promo shots, but the released version had black tires.

    As others said, Misfire may be likely to have the pink head seen here, but I'll wait until some other appearances or promo images before writing off the color entirely.

    (personally, I'd rather have the toy/IDW head design, but that's another matter)

    Club exclusives aren't widely available, and I don't want to pay $50 for deluxes. I agree that scoop is a great figure, however, he and the other 2 don't have the headmaster gimick like the other new target masters do. Hasbro is no stranger to creating a second figure of the same character only a few years later (trailbreaker, nightbeat, brawn in the same product line......)

    Not even alt-mode? I've never seen a jet/starfighter mode as uniquely shaped as Misfire's before i read MTMTE. It was half the selling point for me. :D

    Huh. Missed out on Triggerhappy and not likely to find him at this point at a price I like, but a chance at the mold from these two sounds just as great. Plus color diversity on the shelf would be nice.

    ref autobot TM's - I'm fairly certain that if we do see Sureshot, he'll be a heavy retool of Hardhead - take the cannon off, remould the canopy area, stick some dune buggy wheels on, and a nice yellow/orange paintjob and you're pretty much there...

    Sureshot would need to be his own new mold which Hasbro then could use to make Joyride.

    Crosshairs needs to happen from Kup so hopefully he is in the last wave?

    And Pointblank I think needs to be a new mold? Honestly as much as I love the Getaway we did get I would of made him his own new mold and then heavily retool it into Pointblank.

    My thought is if Full-Tilt is on enough of a separate sprue on Trypticon, then we will see it repainted as Sureshot. It fits well, and could easily be used for Joyride as well. Hardhead is just a "Wha...?!?!?!" kind of idea. Crosshairs could easily be a Kup remold, and of course Pointblank could be a Chromedome redo.

    Oh, and these look fantastic.
