Still I'm getting them for my Classics guys. I hope they give them different heads at least.

Actually, it looks like two different heads as well. One has eyes and sharper edges on the detailing while the other has a visor and more rounded detailing.

This. In fact the two Megatron figures where about 35$+shipping, and they both looked raw and unfinished.
As I am living in Europe, I might go for the Shapeways route: the Drawn-steel hero designs look amazing. I'm a bit concerned about possible rub issues on the painted ball joints, though...
I'm holding Mega-Gun right now, as well as some parts I had printed on Shapeways. How can you compare the two and call MasterShooter's product raw and unfinished? It's smooth ABS plastic verses whatever that rough stuff Shapeways prints with. He is blocky, but then so was G1 Megatron in the cartoon. How is he "raw and unfinished"?

This is exactly what we needed, targertroids & those Micron targetmasters were a waste of time & they where horrible. The only flaw in these I see is Scourges tm, in the cartoon his gun was upside version of Cyclonus & the colors was flipped. I think now his gun is gonna look just like Cyclonus now, but it's still worth getting.

So if anyone is wanting a Mega-Gun… complete and repackaged?


Is that the Targetroid Megs your referring to or that other 3rd party and it looked like a small version of Megatron and was available in two different colors...I think. I didn't like the Targetroids but I've been wondering about the other 3rd party fig, I never saw the release. :???: :VEHI:

Explaining the joke doesn't make it funny. Plus someone already said this in a not-so-obvious way earlier.

It would be the others you are thinking of, not the Targetroids. They were released, but you may have missed it due to them being exclusive to Captured Prey. The link is here: http://www.capturedprey.com/store/maste ... king_2pack

Well that seems about right. After months searching ebay and spending up to £100 on Targetmasters and Minicons from here, there and everywhere in preperation for some custom paint work; NOW a 3rd party company gets round to making these. Typical.

The robot modes look pretty good with the extra articulation, but the weapon modes are little too G1 accurate for my likings, i.e. fugly.

It's always that way. I bought the Shapeways guys who are pretty darn good, but you have to paint them. The Shapeways are way better detailed, but the molded color is really the best.

You think I'm ****** because I missed someone else already posting the same thing. I get it. It wasn't funny.

Though I appreciate that you said what you just did and didn't make another snide remark.

You are right, sorry, it was a poor choice of words. By the way I was referring to the design, not to the material. Sure Mega Gun - which I know just from Peaugh's review - is casted in high quality plastic, better than Shapeways' nylon - or whatever that stuff is. Yet the design and the paint aps don't really work for me, I find them too simplicistic.
So I'd rather print the Drawn-Steel-Hero's ones and paint them myself, but it's just my opinion of course.

MasterShooter Collectibles has updated their facebook page with prototype images of their next round of TargetMaster style mini-figures for Generations Kup, Scourge, Blurr, and Classics Rodimus. According to their post each figure will be just over two inches tall and fully articulated. Check out the cleverly named little figures in the images mirrored from their facebook page below.

Since I have United Haywire.. guess I'll put that on United Blurr, and then put this Quick Shot on Generations Blurr. Guess I'll need to buy another Blurr for the sideFXcustoms.

I love targetmasters but not enough to pay 3rd party prices for them.
I rather get another hexatron instead of a set of these 3rd party targetmasters. i'm more of a quality over quanity type TF fan.

2 years ago, when there was only like 5 3rd party joints to keep up with, I would have preordered these without thought. But now, I'm going to need to know price and quality before really considering these little guys. I like 'em, they would look great with their intended partners, but for god sakes people, slow down!
