Though people originally thought that Blaster's Titan Master head was based on Perceptor, it actually seems to sculpted (not colored, but sculpted) more in homage to the headsculpt of Binaltech Asterisk Broad Blast.

Blaster's pack-in Legends comic seems to agree with this as there's a close up panel of Blaster's helmet-less head that also contains a thought bubble that flashes back to his Binaltech Asterisk body.

Because the head is in Twincast's colors. The larger body isn't the real Blaster, just a lifeless Transtector that Twincast, the head, controls.

I knew it wasn't a coincidence! The legends tablets confirmed to work with Fort Max's chest just made my day. I wonder why it wasn't mentioned on either TR legend tablets or Fort Max.

Though, for clarity's sake, this toy isn't being treated as Blaster's cartoon body proper, but is instead treated as an evolved form of that body, an upgrade from his Twincast body that he got in The Headmasters cartoon. A third form for Cartoon Blaster overall.

Comments:

* So, Japanese Nightbeat is EVERYONE! :P (Specifically, Nightbeat is just a Headmaster Junior suit worn by... I guess all of the employees of the Axalon Trading Company, with Rattrap being the first one to don the armor via a pair of Master-Braces.)

* Uh, Wheelie, you do know that Arcee is usually naked 99% of the time, right? What you're peeking at is always exposed anyway. 8-|

* And Chromedome is still stuck inside Batora's mouth.

Wheelie hiking up Arcee's skirt is a sly reference to a similar incident in 15! 15! Go!

There was a lot of continuity-rich material in both Kiss Players Position and Teletraan 15 Go! Go!. And Sakamoto is a continuity nut himself who loves filling in continuity holes and referencing other materials to add to the continuity overall.

By the same illustrator, no less. Mind you, he's also done Metro Wars, Train Wars, and done line work for FunPub. And skirt hiking is seemingly considered "humorous" over there as it incidentally pops up in manga, anime, and the occasional live action series.

...

Don't look at me like that!

Broadcast's transtector body mass shifts to the size of a Boombox?! Cool! :BOWDOWN:

Galvatron's transtector body functions by itself and treats the head like a soccer ball? Weird and not surprising. Galvatron is a looney as you can get.

All this references and retcons by Takara is really eerie yet fits.........as if they really planned the connections years ago.

Somewhat related,if that Megatronia combiner eventually becomes, which looks to be, canon in the JP continuity, Convoy dies after 7 days, Galvatron gets stasis lock and is thrown back into the Arctic then leads to Return of Convoy then leads to eventual Metrowars etc

Really eerie coincidental with the product background connections.(No wonder in one of the G2 comics a few years back, Broadcast was already in his G1 mode (i.e. red)..........enough to make your head spin and yet now makes sense.

In other words, it's kinda cultural as I mentioned in Unite Warriors. This can be seen in anime since like Gatchaman (1972) (or even earlier Astroboy( not Tatsunoko) episodes and even religious Superbook where one of the boy characters are seen swimming nude which was eventually edited in later shows also by Tatsunoko) where you see Jun the Swan keeps getting gratuitous upskirt shots.

Why? Well JZGR says it all. :lol:
