On Cerebros? Yeah, it is. I think you might be posting in the wrong thread though since we're talking about Sixshot, whose titan master is Revolver Ocelot.
And Revolver is based on Jack, one of Chromedome's old friends from The Headmasters cartoon, whom Sixshot captured, tortured, and planted a bomb inside his body for a suicide mission (with some assisting hypnosis from Mindwipe).

Who knows what Japan might do. But whatever they do, I bet it's gonna be awkward since it'll either result in Sixshot scaling down to look like a guy he murdered, or a resurrected Jack getting a Transtector that looks like the guy who killed him.

Or a means for Sixshot to make amends for his bad guy days by homaging the 'bot he stuck a bomb on.

Despite its flaws, HM really did make both Chromedome and Sixshot appear more than mere cookie cutter characters.

And this mold needs to get a Greatshot version too. :x :x :x

No amends for his killing Abel, though. Or Ultra Magnus. :P

Does anyone know of a fix for a loose Titan Master knee joint? When I plug in Highbrow's head and hold him horizontal looking up, the back of the head will fall down due to gravity. There's no friction at all.

What's worse is that the only way to stop the hypnotized Jack from completing his mission was for Chromedome to have to shoot him before the bomb could go off and blow up its target (the bomb eventually went off anyway after Jack was shot, just sooner than it would have had Chromedome not shot him, which prevented the bomb from destroying its target).

Hmm.. nevermind. Slathered on some nail polish and it seemed to do the trick.

Titan Master molds are generally tied to (parts of) their larger partner. Meaning not only retools will have the same one (just with a different face), but also molds that share parts, like Blurr and Chromedome sharing the Stylor mold.

Revolver is indeed based on the Headmaster anime character Jack as explained before. Quite ironic, don't you think?

Jack looks a lot like one of many those Takara/Bandai/Popy robots of the 1980's specifically the one that worked like a russian nesting doll - which I forget the name of at the moment. But there were several that had that sort of T-1000 Motorcycle cop look to them from that time.

Gordian from Toshi Gordian. He was later retooled, eliminating the smallest figure, into Baikanfu for Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos. :)

There are several Titan Masters, mostly of Voyager Class that take inspiration from some left field sources:

Daburu: White Leo/Pirate Lion from Battle Beasts
Diac: pilot figure from Diaclone

At least Daburu has some fiction homage. The only episode of the Headmasters anime to feature the monsterbots was the episode with the battle beasts and White Leo in.


It seems someone at Hasbro, not just has a sick sense of humour, but is a fan of the Headmasters series.

I don't know if they could get away with references to things they don't own the rights to, but Titan Masters sculpted to look like, say, Asuka or Rei from Evangelion, or the Zentradi pilot suits from Macross would be pretty cool. Eva references would probably be OK as Anno and co are pretty liberal about the license/references to it in other media, and Takara have done Eva themed products before, but Macross would probably be off limits, as Harmony Gold are notoriously anal about the license- to the point even the creators of Macross hate them.

That would explain Overlord. Though he got the wrong Godmaster (Mega instead of Giga) :lol:

If Brave/Yuusha homages are possible (Sunrise/Bandai may throw a wrench into that), there's another possible retool:

Shadowmaru on BraveDX

It's incredible how much better TR Hot Rod looks than Classics. It's not even funny.

I dunno, proportionally the TR figure looks a bit wonky. Classics Hot Rod is IMO the best Hot Rod figure from a purely aesthetic perspective- even the MP has some funky proportions.

The best Hot Rod figure full stop is of course Cybertron Excellion. :-P

Eh. I think the original looks far superior. You can see his spoiler in robot mode, alt mode looks solid instead of an oversized legends (i'm sorry, but it does to me) and superior wheels. And head. And proportions. The new one looks like he skipped leg day and bulked his torso way too much.

But that's just me.
