    Interesting to see that Misfire and Doublecross are priced at 4000 yen, same as Hot Rod, Kup and Triggerhappy. I guess we can expect Misfire to come with Aimless, but what's going on with Doublecross....?

    Guess we'll see those at Tokyo Toy Show in a few days.

    I'm curious if they made tooling changes on Sixshot, from what I've read Wingwolf mode cannot be achieved by this mold, maybe they did something about that? Also yay, Misfire!

    I hope Broadside will be cartoon accurate (not Grimlock's new brain design) with his new chest. I'm confused that broadside design toys or cartoon.

    A character who never was a Headmaster or a Targetmaster is now both at once? Interesting indeed :lol

    It might be TakaraTomy's way of releasing Fracas and Haywire, by bundling them with other characters like Doublecross here.

    Great news! Now, how awesome would it be if Doublecross came with Blurr's Targetmaster Haywire? Please Transformer gods, be kind! We'd just need Scourge's Targetmaster Fracas thrown in with another character (maybe Sixshot?) & we're sorted then :D

    For starters, they need to resculpt the straight brow on Sixshot's helmet.

    There's a lot of stuff to play with there ....I hope they remold broadside's feet and misfire's arms.

    Personally, I would rather Takara retool Broadside to make the jet mode look good. I would throw money at that in a heartbeat.

    How exactly would you attach Haywire to the car? There's no 5mm port on the hood.

    Looking forward to Sixshot, especially if he's gonna be more toy / animation accurate with the colours. Never liked the black legs on the TR version.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. I was planning on getting Legends Doublecross anyway because I really want a painted White Leo.. But if he comes with Haywire, all the better! Then maybe Perceptor or Topspin would come with Fracas.

    What a fantastic idea. Would love to see re-releases accommodating this though, I never got Blurr.

    For sure. So that, maybe some remolding to make Wingwolf possible and... new anime accurate guns? I hate the guns they used on Sixshot, they work well as plug-in guns for his alt-modes but as weapons for Sixshot himself they suck.

    The ones he has in the anime are much better looking:

    Kind of a shame that the pace has sagged so much, I was looking forward to seeing Perceptor, Blitzwing, Seaspray and maybe Bumblebee this year.

    Preordering everything except Broadside.

    The mould is not bad (aside from the awful jet mode) but at this point I need a Leader-size Broadside.

    Although I'm still not sure if I will get Legends Misfire since the character I actually care about is the IDW version.

    LG50 Sixshot - I'd like to see what changes they've made compared to the Hasbro one. I actually like the TR version, especially with the Dr Wu add-ons, but Takara has a thing for adding those extra special touches.

    LG51 Doublecross - Already got the TR version. Not a priority, especially if he's almost identical, even if he is a Targetmaster, but we'll see.

    LG52 Misfire - Don't have the TR one. Targetmaster. Must-have.

    LG53 Broadside - Hopefully better paint apps and none of those awful stickers that Hasbro seems to be fond of using for their TR Voyagers these days.

    I'm guessing Sixshot will have a different shade of green and white thighs. Probably tampos instead of stickers. I highly doubt there will be remolding.
