It'll work if you put some superglue on the joints of the Decepticons used for the arms to thicken up the joints. But if you just do the standard figures, it won't support the weight of the Targetmaster modes. The poses I put Piranacon in are not for the faint of heart!

They look pretty cool though! The Seacons look awesome and you photographed them quite well.

Also, does this mean we're getting Ginrai, Godbomber, and God Ginrai galleries next?

For the combined gun mode, were we have provided "official guidance"?

I have to say your take on it, is the best I've seen so far!


I cringe at the idea of "modifying" my figures when it comes to joints... but I really do want to be able to pull of some of those poses with the target master mode.

Not as elegant as free standing, but you can use some type of overhead supports and a thin string or thread to support the targetmaster kind of like a puppet.

This would be the joints on the legs of the figures used as arms, correct? I'm thinking of trying this with an extra Red Swoop. Those are some of the loosest legs evar!

More like 'great job, Seibertron!' :lol:

Is it weird that looking through this gallery is making me want to buy the original G1 figures again? (Had to sell mine about 10 years ago.)

Yes, that's where I added the super glue. On the knees, I applied a tiny dab to the backside of Nautilator's knees and just kept bending the legs back and forth until I felt the glue had done its job and dried. Then I popped the legs off and applied a thin coating of superglue to the ball joints. I let those dry for a few minutes, popped the legs back on, and moved the legs around until I was satisfied with the level of friction and making sure that the glue had dried. My Nautilator now almost has the opposite problem when his ball joints might be a tad too tight, but I needed them to be like that to support these poses.

On that note, the biggest problem I ended up having with Nautilator holding a Targetmaster mode Seacon was the actual combiner joint inside of him wasn't always strong enough to support the weight. To really fix him, you'd have to disassemble Nautilator's chest (which requires pin removal) in order to get to the combiner port to disassemble that piece and stretch out the spring to make it stronger. I didn't do that because I was able to pull off the poses I wanted long enough for my pics (though it was a really, really, really frustrating process that involved me cursing when Piranacon would tip over or a limb would fall off or whatever else happened behind the scenes).

Transformers Generations Selects Piranacon (King Poseidon) Gallery

This one was my favorite, though I didn't like that Overbite's gun had to sit sideways on top. I wish there had been a better way to handle Overbite's gun integration. It was always the one piece that messed up whatever I came up with.
