Ha! Lione! I didn't think we'd see him in the Legends line. Neato!

The best mold in the line but with dudes that turn into guns? Sold.

Talking of the line; I'm pretty sure that's everything from Titans Return done now, isn't it? Barring any re-uses like G2 Megatron they want to do.

Seems like it. Though they never released Wilder (Fangry) as a Headmaster (his animal partner is getting packed with G2 Megatron). Which is odd because he appeared in the comics.

Ptero and his animal partner were never released, and I'm guessing the Lione that comes with Seaspray is the head. If that's the case the lion partner hasn't seen a release yet either.

Then there are retools of existing Headmasters (not talking about any vehicles or animals) that weren't released and likely won't be (Krok, Getaway, Shuffler Headmaster, Black Shadow, etc).

With Takara seemingly shoe-horning the Targetmaster partners into whichever release they can, and their appearance in this latest comic, what are the chances of us actually getting Crosshairs, Pointblank and Sureshot as figures, even if they are Takara exclusives?

I feel like it's possible that the autobot targetmasters might be part of the "Power of the Primes" line. So it's possible that Takara's preemptively releasing the target masters to be paired with later figures.

I doubt it, with everything being a Combiner.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Takara whip up the Autobot Targetmasters - Hot Rod and Kup provide good bases for two of them and one original mold wouldn't be too out of the question imo - but I think it's equally if not more reasonable that they're just releasing their Targetmaster partners because they're doing Targetmasters anyway.

Maybe as a special release, but for the main line? Nope. Head swaps have it hard in the Japanese market you know...

Possibly as retools, but not as new figures. Also, the first 4 waves of PotP has been leaked, but the Autobot TM's are not part of them. They'd have to combine anyway, so...

Eh who knows, It's possible takara has a more extensive catalog compared to the Hasbro one that was leaked. Whether it's a standard LG release or a UW realease, it's possible takara's already planning ahead for figures that aren't finished yet.

Well, considering that Crosshairs, Pointblank, and Sureshot's appearance in the comic basically had them go "Yeah, we're not going with the rest of you guys to the Legends World, we're staying behind on purpose"...

Well they did say that they're staying to look for their targetmaster partners, but those all obviously are going to end up in the legends world so there's that.

At the same time, they also still took on Headmaster forms and they could eventually get bodies for a future situation. This just explains why their Targetmaster partners are purchasable without them.

Also I really want different umbrella terms to separate Crosshairs, Pointblank and Sureshot from Peacemaker, Spoilsport and Pinpointer. Having to specify which 'Targetmasters' I'm talking about is getting really frustrating.

To know I'm most likely in the minority here, but I'd like the jump starter wreckers' guns to be Rack and Ruin so there could at least be an official release of them...

And we can't abbreviate either of them down to TM either, 'cause that adds a third layer of confusion with Titan Masters, who'd also probably be involved! I don't know if there's any really good way of solving that (outside of another officially-sanctioned designation, like the split between Headmasters - the main guys - and Titan Masters - the partners). If you'd like a suggestion for a substitute term though, you could always call Peacemaker/Spoilsport/Pinpointer "the shooty-men". :P


Personally I don't think it's likely that we'll see TT-only renditions of the C/P/S-type Targetmasters; if they were planning to release them soon, why then release their partners with other random figures? The Targetmaster partners are a non-line-specific extra on top of TR's gimmick anyway, so even if C/P/S weren't going to be part of the TR-section of Legends, that shouldn't stop them from being packed with their gun-people. To me, that (pin)points to C/P/S not being in the plans for Takara at the moment - they've done some crazy retool/new-mold stuff before in the last two years, but it doesn't seem too likely this time around IMO.

Courtesy of fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999, we have a video review of the very recently revealed Takara Tomy Transformers Legends LG46 Targetmaster Kup - in comparison with the Titans Return Hasbro version of the figure, and featuring the Targetmaster Recoil too! Check it out below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub.

[quote] Once again Takara steps up and goes above and beyond Hasbro giving us the best Kup to date outside of a theoretical Masterpiece. The inclusion of Recoil a new mold update to the G1 Targetmaster is the cherry on the sundae. Highest possible recommendation.[/quote]

Funnily enough I vaguely remember something about the crossover comeback a while back, but heard nothing since, just hope they update the vehicles to coincide with the current movies ect

Thanks to fellow Seibertronian Albatross250, and with the previous image found on Loopaza MegaStore's Facebook page, we have confirmation of those Takara Tomy Transformers Legends figures reported here.

Specifically, we're looking at March 2018 releases of LG64 Seaspray and Lione (Sawback), LG65 Target master Twin Twist, LG66 Target Master Top Spin! Still no image available, but we do have price points in Yen of 2000 and 4000 respectively, meaning 17 USD and 35 USD at the time of writing. (Also included in the image appear to be reissues of MPM-3 Bumblebee and TLK-25 Nitro Zeus.)

So Twintwist and Topspin are officially Targetmaster-Headmaster-Jumpstarter-Wreckers. Talk about ambitious. I'll probably end up getting those two over the Hasbro versions for the Targetmasters. Seaspray depends entirely on if I can find a Hasbro version before Power of the Primes starts.
