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.
