Wow, they look like pretenders almost.

Gotta say, I like G1 Chop Shop better than CW Chop Shop.

I love the Deluxe Insecticons. This gallery inspired me to pull all mine out of storage. THey are a glorious looking team.
I'm waiting for an official or even a 3rd party release of a proper Venom. Desperately. Venom was one of the first Transformers i ever owned as a kid. HE looks fantastic in both modes and i love that his whole torso is die cast.

Will somebody please make an updated Venom please!!

These guys have been part of my collection in one form or another for at least 10 years or so. I've gone through a few different versions of them trying to get them ready for the galleries. At one point I was going to do repro labels on them, but one by one I obtained original sticker sheets, better versions of them, and so on.

A mosquito or something along those lines is what I always thought Venom was because I thought his insect mode had a needle nose. A harmless Cicada was not what I thought Venom was and I love that he has a happy face as a Cicada. :D

It might as well be. The "horns" on his chest easily break, the insect legs break off, and on the one featured in this gallery, the hinge joint for his insect mode's horns broke, which I finally managed to get superglued back together so that it would be functional at least for my gallery so that I could finish them. I'll look for a 3rd replacement for this figure in my collection while I'm at BotCon next month.

My barrage is still in good shape but I tread lightly around him. I don't want him to break. He's a tough guy to find in good condition and I got a nice minty one.

I have 3 different Venoms in varying degrees of awesomeness. Accept for one. I was so excited to finally get him in hand and relish in child like nestalgia that I dropped him and snapped his arm off. So bummed.

His face is the odd one out in this quartet. His body is fine, it's just hist face that's goofy. It'd be interesting to see Combiner Wars Bombshell with an updated Barrage head.

According to TFWiki, it doesn't seem likely we'll ever get reissues of these guys, since Bandai owns the molds. Still, just like Chop Shop has been retooled from Generations Shrapnel, there's nothing to stop HasTak from creating new molds or slightly retooling existing molds to give these guys some love.

Nice galleries! Especially loved Pointblank and Peacemaker.....those were the only Targetmaster(s) I ever had as a kid.

Did you have any trouble transforming the Decepticon Targetmaster partners? I know they're notorious for breaking at the hips.

Pioneers.



Never had any Targetmasters, but always liked the introduction of the new Autobot cars and Decepticon jets to the series.
So is this group getting new molds in Titans Return?

I've got Crosshairs, the only Targetmaster I had as a kid. Funny how the Decepticon jets have clear windows and the Autobots are painted on; the color schemes and designs for the Deceptions look better too IMO.

I enjoyed these galleries! I think Slugslinger has aged the best; just a nice, balanced G1 toy.

I've always thought it was kind of odd that the 1987 Autobot Targetmasters were smaller than their Decepticon counterparts. They almost look like they were designed by two different people, especially when you consider how their Targetmaster weapons are different for each faction. Even the heads are a similar style for each group. The size difference in the Autobot and Decepticon Headmasters is also something to note, but it always seemed more to do with the way Hardhead and Chromedome "unfold" which is why they ended up with such larger robot modes than the other 5.

As a kid I think target masters were the only sub series I never had been able to get my hands on. Always wanted a couple, especially the deceptions, I have some modern updates and a reissue Kup but these guys would be awesome to see reissued and updated.
My personal prime collection so far in descending order of how great i reckon the toy is -
FE Prime, Silas Breakdown (Powerizer), Dreadwing (Powerizer), FE Bulkhead, Voyager StarScream (Powerizer), Ratchet, Soundwave, Arcee, Voyager Megatron (Powerizer), Wheeljack, Thundertron (Powerizer), Ultra Magnus (Powerizer), Knockout, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee,Airachnid

New Galleries: G1 Decepticon Headmasters Weirdwolf, Skullcruncher and Mindwipe

Postby Va'al » Thu May 12, 2016 1:08 pm

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
The fandom seems abuzz with opinions on the upcoming Transformers Titans Return line, as we've seen from the conversation following the stock images we reported on recently. So here at Seibertron.com we've dipped back into where a lot of those characters started!

Check out our new galleries for the Decepticon Headmasters from all the way back in G1, and the year 1987: backwards self-talking Weirdwolf, tooth grinding fighter Skullcruncher, and master of dark forces Mindwipe! Each of course joined by their Nebulon partners Monzo, Grax, and Vorath respectively. All of these characters will be receiving updated toys in the upcoming Transformers Titans Return line later this year. You can view the galleries by clicking on any of the images below.

If you've been keeping count, this update brings us to 3,996 galleries. You know what that means? Only 4 left until the big milestone! What do you think the gallery will be? What would you want it to be?

I was wondering what was up with the the gigantic eyes/visors the Headmasters universally had, then I saw this:

Never imagined they actually hid the faces on these things! That's pretty impressive.

I have been into transformers since 1984.
While I love G1 I also love new innovations and takes on the characters.
I prefer official Hasbro releases of stuff for the most part
I'm not a huge fan of Japanese original Transformers media or designs.
It's easier for me to say which are my LEAST favorite toy lines: Beast Machines, Robots in Disguise.
