By way of our friends at Autobase Aichi we have new images of the upcoming Million Publishing/Hero-X exclusives, Shouki and GoShooter. These figures will be mail away exclusives the Transformers Generations 2014 Volumes 1 and 2 respectively. GoShooter, who is a redeco of the Generations Deluxe Nightbeat mold, was the winner of a fan poll to determine the Volume 2 exclusive. This image reveals that GoShooter will come with the Generations Blazemaster/Spinister Legends Targetmaster figure to represent Shuta Go. Check out the image mirrored below:

Update: Hero-X has updated with a couple of additional images.

GoShooter with Gō Shūta... :roll: Well played.

I should note that to all the Japanophiles is that while the Transformer name uses Katakana (ゴーシューター Gōshūtā) the human as a native Japanese uses regular Kanji (剛 秀太 Gō Shūta).

Boo. They used an unfun mold for Shuta. I wanted one with more than just articulated shoulders. A PCC Micron would have worked better.

I thought you knew he was coming with Shuta.

Just that he came with a Mini-Con.

No, he's a previously unknown Gobot. :roll: [spoiler]OK I was joking. Read the previous posts, Sabrblade has explained it already, so I'm not gonna repeat it[/spoiler]

I like it. Bit of Masterforce/Victory is usually good. I question the helicopter targetmaster for Shuta. But I'm not sure there is something that works better and looks somewhat like an exosuited human. I was thinking maybe a police car micron, but this is not a deal breaker. Cool.

It's not the one I wanted most out of that poll, but I'll get him and place him beside Metalhawk.

I agree!

I'd love to get this! Siren was my only headmaster toy as a kid, so I quite like Go-shooter. Sadly funds make it pointless to try and get one. Maybe if Nightbeat feels like turning up at retail I'll get 2 and paint my own...

A very nice figure, but i don't care about the ugly targetmaster wannabee or the "aqua" guns this mold comes with. Hopefully it will have a normal gun that you can hide somewhere. What they really should have done is actually make him a new mold and a headmaster.

quite true for 90% of reprints we get...then there would have been a lot more choices on the poll to vote for if they weren't doing repaints of existing figures. Hasbro/Takara doesn't seem to have much interest in actual headmasters, except the soon to be released Brainstorm. So Million Pub doesn't have many options for using I that regard.

I'll do JelZe to favor of say, yes, he is a G1 character, and a well done one at that.

Goshooter, better known as Shuta Go, was one of the Autobot Headmaster Juniors from the Japanese Super-God Masterforce cartoon. His toy was a redeco of the G1 Siren toy.



However, don't let that video clip fool you. Though he looks to be a mere human merging with a lifeless Transformer body when he transforms into robot mode in this video, the end of the series had all of the human-bonded TFs gaining their own life and separating from the humans completely, no longer needing them anymore.

This new toy of Goshooter represents the fully-living robot version of him after that series, so there's no need to worry about some human boding with him to give him life. But, the little Targetmaster this toy comes with is meant to be that same human, by now grown up into an adult, likely wearing a Targetmaster exosuit like those we saw the G1 Targetmasters wearing in the three-part G1 cartoon episode "The Rebirth".


Though, you did previously make this post in this topic, so this news about Goshooter shouldn't be new to you. ;)

There's something in one of the bios about either Goshooter or Shuta being a "Godmaster Junior", but it's difficult for me to make out as it sounds like the smaller helicopter figure is the Godmaster Junor Transtector instead of the larger Deluxe figure (which would make more sense than the smaller figure, but it sounds like it is referring to the smaller figure, hence the confusion here).

I just noticed something in the robot mode: the shoulder kibble has an alternate transformation to make it look more like the original G1 Siren/Goshooter toy:



It makes me wonder if that's the reason why Gen. Bumblebee was used for Nightbeat/Siren instead of RtS Jazz. :-?

Still can't believe this utter nobody Go-Shooter was elected rather than Alpha Trion. So pissed at that.

He is not a nobody in Japan, where this poll was aimed at. Japan got many many more iconic, beloved, very popular G1 characters that the Western World never got. It's like when Star Saber won the Masterpiece Fans Choice poll. These characters won these Japanese polls because they're very darn popular characters in Japan.


And that Alpha Trion toy looked less like Alpha Trion and more like Scourge cosplaying as Alpha Trion.

And we don't go BS crazy when an obscure character like Scoop gets a new toy? :roll:

Yeah, I totally think this was designed as Nightbeat, and the alternate transformation and Bumblebee version was tacked on second. With the shoulders down, it really does make a great GoShooter/Nightbeat. This paint job also looks like it has a lot of detail. Really happy with it.

That said, I DO really hope they re-visit the list they showed. Many — like Alpha Trion — deserve to be made. Police Sunstreaker also in my top choices.

As for the Omnibots... I hope they get their own new molds. While they were at the top of my choices, they were each admittedly a little off.

The more I look at this, the more I wish this mold had become Barricade instead of BH Smokescreen.
