i love these so much! so far i have every titans return deluxe decepticon and i love misfire in the comics. one of my favorite g1 characters was slugslinger and i will enjoy these toys greatly! so excited
Those figures are essential.
you know i would still love a cyclonus use out of the triggerhappy mold, but that's just me
They look nice but it\'s a bummer that they\'re once again Targetmasters becoming Headmasters, especially since we know there are Targetmasters coming soon - they\'ll be out of Targetmasters to make into Targetmasters at this rate, and we\'ll get Headmasters and Powermasters turned into Targetmasters next, or something equally as stupid.
Most likely Anime accurate too..
Brutal murder of that Triggerhappy base mold!
We have Krok and now Misfire.
So when are we getting Crankcase, Spinister and possibly Fulcrum & SkyTread? (Flywheels)
I'm less concerned with the exact shared parts. Best guess based on the photos, the transformation is pretty much the same for Misfire and Slugslinger, and more basic than Triggerhappy.
- torso sides flip down, and shoulder joints flip to opposite side of those parts.
- legs/feet flip over and tuck in to the jet back like Triggerhappy, but doesn't require all TH's rotations to get there.
- nose section of vehicle flips from backpack to where head goes on swingarm(s)
- arms 'hang out' underneath the wings.
Not saying that's good or bad, though I imagine a 'non-Headmaster-style' mod might be more feasible on these two.
These look great, the alt modes are spot on. More exciting reveals than Toy Fair! (Given we already knew about Trypticon and Overlord.)
Sureshot could share a mold with with a potential Joyride, could possibly get a Slapdash out of it as well.
This hits all the marks! I'm not even gonna wait for the sales around here I'm grabbing the first one I see on shelf later this year.
Two-pronged altmode nose? Check.
Forward swept main wings? Check.
No cockpit kibble on chest? Check.
Goofy smile? Check.
Pink as hell? Big check.
The head color seems to be a letdown but it's nothing some customization can't fix.
Hasbrooo! I love you guys. They are beautifull.
Guess Misfire is a Triggerhappy retool after all.
I like Slugslinger, he looks great but the fact it's a retool of hollow limbs Triggerhappy, makes me not sure about it. It's one thing to have hollow arms, but the legs too? Meh.
The cockpits are fake?! Not interested then, what a wasted opportunity.
Great surprise to wake up to, they both look fantastic and are another stellar example of how cunning they're getting with their modern tech and design methods.
Targetmasters don't have to be dedicated to a certain figure though. They could make all the targetmasters for the rebirth guys, package them with other characters and then we just redistribute them.
They look great at first glance. Spectacular vehicle modes!
This is beautifull! I'm having a bit of an inner debate wether i'd wait for Takara for more anime colours. But these guys are awesome.
Fingers crossed for Sureshot, Pointblank and Crosshairs to get some TR love as well.
I just wish they were actual Targetmasters.
I hate line wide gimmicks so much....
I'm disappointed that something cleverer doesn't appear to happen with their arms. I wish Misfire's wings could fold in a little more discretely in 'bot mode. Slugslinger looks like the better figure out of the two of them. Love that his combined guns look like the archetypal Decepticon Targetmaster gun. Neither head sculpt satisfies. Why is Misfire wearing Slugslinger's sunglasses? Oh my god this is Siren and Nightbeat all over again. *flails*. I wonder how long it'll take me to get over Misfire's head? All this (not entirely serious) whining aside, I can't wait for these two. The Decepticon Targetmasters are going to look incredible together. Come on Hasbro; Wave 6 = Slugslinger and the Autobot Targetmasters! Crosshairs to Kup is such an easy win. If you must, Pointblank and Sureshot from some permutation of Hot Rod and/or Chromedome?
Pointblank could work as a Blurr Retool (new shield, head, and hand covers)
Agreed on Kup=Crosshairs
Hot Rod for Sureshot
I.could see Quickmix and Landfill sharing a mold maybe? Same base body/truck swap the dumper for a mixer. Maybe a falsie chest for the sake of g1 accuracy
