Meh.... A good paint job on a boring figure. I do find it rather uninspiring that this one is basically going to be lying on some Transformers' forearm with a case of stomach cramp.

With all the variations of Mastershooter Creations targetmasters on pre-order, I could care less about these mini-cons Takara wont stop churning out. I dont understand how anybody can even consider these things targetmasters for classics figures anymore.

It's quite simple really. From what I've seen of the Mastershooter figs, they are primitave in design and many are repaints of each other. What Takara is putting out (moreso with the TF Prime Minicons) is at least creative and innovative. I hope somehow we'll see them over here in North America.

I wouldnt exactually call it innovative. Theyre just milking every last drop from the failed PCC line molds. I dont blame them for doing that, but if they want to be creative they should repaint them to match certain TF Prime figures and introduce them as new characters. Mini-cons just dont make good G1 homages since they have wings, cannon arms, axe feet, etc. Once they set the standard with Nightstick, it's hard to accept anything less as a targetmaster.

Love em or hate em, you gotta admit Mastershooter was pretty innovative swapping limbs on 3-4 molds to create a total of 13 characters all fairly accurate to the G1 versions.

Not that interesting, and honestly a bit irritating in certain regard. We have new versions of targetmasters, but some don't even have their bulk counterparts. Generations/United/ect. Crosshairs anyone?

It's FunPub. It's their specialty.

I'm a killjoy, and proud of it!
don't take that to mean I'm a killjoy just because I can be, though...
