Grey and black Targetmaster Microns are where it's at. Also Vector Oracle is sexy. Dunno why but I love it. I couldn't care about the rest. I am beyond surprised that Hasbro is nailing paint and colors on the Prime stuff. It's a nice break for the wallet and an opportunity to throw more money at domestic releases for a while.

The stickers are awful. The micron does not compensate.

Absolutely right. It has never been called Slugslinger. I got reprolabels in the mail today for my G1 Slugslinger and just had it on the brain. Thanks for the heads up.

Any time :PEACE:

The more I look at Pinpointer, the more I want him, despite there being no Classics Crosshairs. I have the same problem with Spoilsport without a Classics Sureshot, but I could repurpose him as Barrelroller for WFC Optimus Prime, as he's an inverted Recoil for Kup, and Kup was used for Orion Pax ^^

The stickers (or lack of paint) and the Micron ports are really hurting these figures which are already inferior to the First Editions. I just don't get it.

I don't understand the paint issues with Takara. If they could make the color on the ports all one color for CJ why the hell couldn't they do the same for Ratchet? Yeah if your a pro and you do your own paint mods that's all good but I'm not. C'mon Takara this laziness crap is BS!! :VEHI:

Arcee and Vehicon are the only exceptions to this, with their RID toys being improvements over their FE toys.

I can't speak for the Vehicon, as I don't have a deluxe version (i do have a nice troop of cyberverse Vehicons for background minions!). But the Arcee is a split decision. My opinion is they are about even. I like RID Arcee because she is little smaller, better head, cleaner arms and I dig her rifle, but the FE seems more complex, higher quality (at least with the ones I got) and doesn't have the wings.

Well, I thought these Takara RID figures looked good at first, but now that we are starting to get some in-hand images...bleh. Those stickers suck.

CJ looks pretty horrible. Those stickers were a bad idea.

That micron with Roddy looks pretty sweet though, and those are some of the best pictures of that particular Rodimus deco I've seen so far. Not bad at all!

Did Takara leave the work experience lad in charge of development for the AM line? How can they balls it up so badly that they even chose the wrong shade of red for Cliffjumper?

I'm annoyed how good Firebolt looks with Hot Rod considering I'll probably never be able to own him, and that group shot with the other Targetmasters just makes it worse.

Yea, it's going to hurt getting those. I didn't think I would care, what with the FP Firebolt and Blesser, but I do. I care. They look killer.

What's really bothersome is how United Rodimus Prime is a G1 character toy, while Firebolt is a Prime character toy (he's an Arms Micron).

True. Thank goodness for repurposing.

Both for those who like to stick to the official placements of figures' continuities, it's irksome.
