I think I'm a Targetmaster guy.
All the best
in no specific order
As I see transformation so often...I guess action masters really were the worst gimmick,lol. Kudos to whoever it was that said retail availability...yep..that alone ought to be a gimmick!
$32 Combiner Wars Superion-G2/Menasor-G2 collection set figures.
Bestest gimmick ever!
Any time there's a mini robot partner. Whether that be Targetmaster or Head/Titanmaster or the rare occasion there's a transforming pilot like Ultra Magnus. It was a bit much with Armada and mini-cons but I still dug it in theory.
I second that
Besides the obvious one, Transformation, I suppose it'd be Combination of the Scramble City variety. I wasn't all that interested in Combiners beyond Computron and Abominus before that line, but I was hooked as soon as I combined my first three spontaneously bought Aerialbots.
Targetmasters are the best.
But I think the gimmick I like best are base modes. Chairs or desks were fine as a kid...but I always wanted something better than that.
$32? Whoa! THAT is a steal!
Seriously? Out of all the non-transforming toys over the years,
is still the worst of them all?
or one of the toys like it?
Other than Robot Heroes which rates highly due to how collectable they are, Action Masters should rate among the best of the non-transforming toys.
Haha, actually, I totally agree with you. My dirty little secret is that I loved my action masters. I think it was because of the cartoony look. Those titan hero things, yeah, THOSE are cheap and horrid! To be fair, when I listed non transforming gimmicks, I represented it with action masters because they were the only non transforming figs I had on hand, largely because they were the only ones worth picking up. And transformation doesn't save things either, I mean, constructbots, bot shots (I think) and q transformers all change, and they are questionable, depending on your collecting tastes of course.
Without a doubt Combining.
Well, there was a certain charm to the action masters, also having their own vehicles to ride on was interesting.
Also there was Hero Mashers as a close second to the non-transforming figures. Too bad Hasbro missed a chance to recreate the action masters with those.
Combination and multi-changing, I can't pick one or the other.
Combiner targetmaster, like g1 seacons and certain combiner wars gestalts.
The one where I can afford all the things I want! But seriously, I don't know if I can choose. I do I like the whole TR thing, though. Not just because of the 'head converts to pilot' element, but because I like really tiny figures that can be arranged on a base that turns into a vehicle that turns into a robot! The amount of variety and imagination that leaves open is inspired to me. Makes me feel like a kid again. And that's why we all do this, right?
The idea that they are going to keep Convoy/Optimus Prime dead in any continuity!
I mean... Headmasters, Master Warriors, and Headmaster Juniors.
More specifically, the current "Legends era" variants. Because the upgrades, the changes, and the team-ups have helped me find this to be a fun variation to what Titans Return has to offer.
Plus, I am starting to arm up to the Godmasters stuff. But I have decided not to delve into that until TakaraTomy caves in and gives us Masterpiece versions of those characters.
I'll be the one person who says that he likes Cyber Keys, at least when they're done right.
