Im surprised they didnt showcase his armor or his combined cannon as well…. Im kinda meh on one of my favorite characters and hes doing everything right.
That's what she said?
how many inches is astrotrain in train mode im not spedning $50 to have a 5 inch train
I really want to see the combined orbital cannon for Astrotrain its bugging me its not been shown.
It depends on what grounds they are being judged as. They are better figures but less solid weapons. Weapon mode on the lg targetmasters is inferior to siege battlemasters, but siege battlemasters have inferior bot modes
Those people should never be trusted aa judges of what makes a good figure.
The claim is one of the most ridiculous I've read in this fandom. And that's saying something.
People have been saying the TT LG Targetmaster weapons were inferior since before the Siege Battlemasters even came out. Clipped limbs? Seriously? For toys that like 80% of the buyers will just leave on a shelf for a year or two untouched? If they even ever come out of the package.
It's all personal opinion/bias of course. I'm collecting both however. :/
Maybe take a look at what he actually said:
There are no figures of Targetmaster characters coming out that include their Targetmaster partners. Even the packs you're referring to (which do not include Targetmaster characters, but do include larger figures and Battlemasters in one package) are not part of Wave 5 – they're not part of any wave.
I am aware of all the reveals. There is no figure coming out in a retail wave that includes a Battlemaster.
Barricade looks awesome, but I haven't seen any information about him. Do we know anything such as release date, exclusivity, or pre-orders?
Right. It was mentioned specifically in the show that their beast modes were not always real-word accurate in size. Waspinator was always a giant wasp.
Pinpointer comes with G2 Sideswipe and Grandslam, called Trenchmouth now.
Fracas (Scourge's partner) and Hairsplitter (now called something else) come with Skywarp.
So yeah as that poster above said, you need to keep up with the reveals.
Trust me, Ihave 5 of those Takara molds and am selling them off now. They may look more distinct and have more articulation as robots, but are terrible in weapon mode. The legs and arms often don't clip together, and just hang there, while the hasbro ones clip into a solid compact gun. The weird translucent barrels are also not great. And I love the way you can remove the guns from the back and add on the arms for the Hasbro battlemasters. I did comparison pics with Misfire amd Triggerhappy if anyone is interested.
Too true! We are still just getting to 1989 micromasters and 1988 double targetmasters. Now we move on to 1990 micromaster combiners, and I expect a few Action Master hommages (but transforming) like Banzai-tron, Rad, Jackpot, Rollout. Then comes 2021 for the 1991 EU stuff like Turbomasters and Predators, Motorvators, maybe a Titan class Overlord…
Thanks hasbro. Between you and all the third party combiners there goes all my vacation money. Worth it keep up the good work. Not too sold on the astrotrain head sculpt but maybe it will grow on me
I believe it's been confirmed that the other cockpit folds up underneath the copter.
Im excited and disappointed at the same time of how Frenzy looks wonder if he will have guns
Hope to god Rumble comes with Pile drivers! And probably Buzzsaw? But when and how!!?
How does spinister’s left leg work in vehicle mode and why was he given two cockpits for legs?
Ok but you quoted this from Hasbro: "All of the Targetmasters are being sold in the "master" pricepoint with some other non-gun weapon transformers under the blanket name "Battlemasters." Which at no point specifies that Targetmasters will be packaged with partners just that Targetmesters like Blowpipe will be included in the battlemasters assortment.
I am talking about the Legends Targetmasters figures being released packaged WITH their companions (same package). The fact that the first three Targetmasters that are being released in the Siege line do NOT come with their companions is Boo.
Blowpipe, Aimless and Caliburst were released to coincide with the TR Legends, so that's not the same.
Targetmaster refers both to the gun bot and their larger partner
