Best/Worst Looking Titan Master?

Postby DestronMirage22 » Thu Aug 31, 2017 9:47 am

With Titans Return pretty much done, I figured it'd be a good time to discuss something about the line's main gimmick, the Titan Masters.
Which Titan Master did you guys think turned out the best? Which one do you think looks the worst?
(Takara's Legends Headmasters don't count as those automatically look the best)



My personal picks:
Best:Fracas
Image
I really like the way this little guy turned out. His face is nicely painted and the different tone of blue used on his legs adds for some interesting variation. As a head he works pretty well, him being completely blue matches Scourge's body nicely and makes it look like more than just a folded up guy and more like his actual head. Not to mention how cool it was they were able to incorporate Scourge's little head-gun.
Plus, he looks like a tiny Rumble. :D

Worst: Firedrive
Image
(Not my picture)
I don't like the way they did Firedrive. He's completely unpainted! That's just extremely lazy. They couldn't even mold him in the same red as Hot Rod, if they did it would've at least matched with his face. But no, instead he's the most plain and drab shade of grey I've ever seen! He brings down what is otherwise the best Hot Rod figure we've gotten yet.



So, what are your guys' picks?

Can't speak for worst because all the TMs I have so far have been great but my favourite sculpt has to be Crashbash. I love the semi-organic look his "suit" has going on.

I'll agree with Firedrive being the most bland, but I think Rodimus Prime from the Chaos set is the best looking, even though technically he doesn't have a Titan body. He is still a Titan Master.

I wouldn't describe Firedrive's gray plastic as "drab", it's the same metallic gray as Hot Rod's guns and exhaust pipes. A. There might not have been room left on the red sprue and B. It's a callback to Hot Rod's original toy, where his engine block formed the back of his head

I do wish he had been painted, would help him stand out more in the combined guns' seat, but I understand why he wasn't: Roddy's spoiler took up most of the paint budget.

Twinferno aka Doublecross, his is styled after White Leo aka Pirate Lion. In The Headmasters, Doublecross and the other Monsterbots were stationed on Planet Beest, home of the Beastformers or Battle Beasts, hence that connection.

For me the worse is repugnus, painted with the ass.

I think I prefer no paint than that.

For my fave, it's harder to choose. As a head/face, I like a loot shuffler, but the titan master itself is not painted at all.

I only have a best pick since i only own Overboard (G1 Overkill)

But the pearl white and navy blue contrast quite nicely. The details are amazing on this little figure.

EDIT: Took me a while to find a image online. Overboard isn't in the seibertron toy galleries and i'm not good at photographing small things :CON:

Image

on a quick note i don't know if it's only the dinosaur who is called overkill or does the pilot have a separate name. That's what is misleading when dont get tech spec profile s and number s for tje small sets

Weapon: Acid Rays
Out of the ones I own
Best: Daburu (cool face) and Darkmoon (nice detail on the arms, the only one I have that portrays any sort of weapons).
Worst: Firedrive is rather boring. My Doomshot had cracks on his legs right out of the box.

Have to agree with worst being Firedrive. That's just bland.

If Takara's offerings count, then Ginrai is very much one of the best ones.

Blue visor, gold face. White body, black boots. Red arms and legs. So much variety.

Otherwise, Furos is decent, even getting visor paint, and different color limbs and body.
