Thanks to Blacklai's Toybase we have some new in-hand images of the Hasbro Asia Limited Edition Release of the Master Sword! These new images show off the sword in great detail, how it splits in half, the translucent blade, and the blade in multiple figures hands. Check out some of the mirrored images below.

Was the KFC condiment packet to show that it was transparent or is it an in-joke that I'm not getting? (Besides finger lickin' good of course)

Ya. I think it was to show the translucency.

Why would they choose to make the blade transparent? That makes no sense.

Because transparent implies energonish-glowey-evilkicking-goodness? :-s

So I was playing around with my Blaster and PM Prime in base mode, and there are some ramp attachments I'm not sure anyone's pointed out (or noticed) on Blasters back-side

I knew about those attach!ent points already, I just never mentioned them because I thought everybody else noticed. :BANG_HEAD: BTW, I'm surprised that I'm probably the only person that knows how to store Blaster's Titanmaster while he's in boombox mode. Everybody who owns TR Blaster, take the little black thing that goes in his chest. There should be a hole shaped like a Titanmaster's body. See if Twin Cast fits in there. ;)


I actually mentioned and showed it off at the end of the Wave 1 Titans Masters review. I found out about it from some commenters on Optibotimus' review of Blaster.

But... It doesn't do that.

It's probably transparent in parts because they thought it looks cool.
And I certainly can't disagree.

Maybe it didn't in Headmasters, but does now?

No, I'm almost certain the sdcc version has no paint apps outside of the black hilt, making the Hong Kong exclusive is far superior >:oP
