Yeah, are they related to the BioRoids from Robotech/Southern Cross?

The mini prime can maybe pass for a orion pax, i guess... might be worth getting so that the figure isn't just a mini version of the larger deluxe. They all look cool, but... don't serve any purpose

If only they came with a headmaster version of themselves that could combine with the targetroid to form an 80's cassette tape that shoot sparks!!! Someone tell me why I should want these. Pass.

do Prime, Hot Rod or Starscream have vehicle modes or just their weapon alts?

I don't think these look terrible (they seem quite posable and the robot modes are mostly nice for their size) but other than Megatron I don't really see the appeal of the Mini-Me versions.

I'm probably going to pick up that Megatron. His bot mode looks prety awesome and it makes the most sense for him to be a targetmaster.

When's someone going to make a Shockwave or Sixshot like this?

I hope never... I don't want a tiny little robot for a Shockwave and definitely not for a Sixshot.
Although those 2 are reaally reaally overdue for a remake. I'd be worried if anyone tackled sixshot unless it was fansproject.

I must be in the minority that actually likes these little figures. They all look great in bot mode and the gun modes ain't bad either. I really like the idea of TF's holding mini versions of themselves as guns.

Prime: So, is that my rifle or yours?
Hot Rod: Gee, I'm not sure...

I'm tempted to buy them just to add to my Op/Meg collection... but as they don't have the right alt mode I think I'll pass at that price.

I don't need any more images of these guys, I've already wanted them when we saw the first unfinished pics.

these guys are awesome.

I those are pretty cool, just not 20 bucks a piece cool.

If a 2 pack of these were hanging on the shelf at Target for $4.99, I'd snap them right up. For almost $40 after shipping, not so much.

I just can't get behind the concept of turning mainline characters and turning them into Targetmasters. Megatron, I can kind of see since his alt mode is in fact a gun, but the other three seem strange to me. I would be much more receptive to a third party producing updated versions of the original Targetmaster partners.

I agree. Peacemaker please.

If these things were original characters, or even re-designs of Targetmasters from G1, I'd be likely to buy. As it is... umm, nope.

I really like Targetmaster style weapons for TFs, but the price is just too out there.

I agree, that I'd be MORE likely to get these if they were NOT main characters, and were just generic bots or re-dos of the old G1 targetmasters.

If they were $20, even $25, I'd go for it, but $35 plus shipping is just to much $$$ for what they are.

I don't get why people are complaining about $35 for two targetmasters when people are all over Perfect Effect target masters (and that's all they really are) when they are priced $35-$40 each. I think these are priced cheap.
