Toy News: "Legends" Kup sports new colors in latest promotional photos

A couple weeks ago, Takara Tomy revealed its releases of Hot Rod, Kup and Sharkticon. Fans were excited for these releases thanks in part to Hot Rod and Kup both coming with Targetmaster partners that were not included with the "Titans Return" releases. However, many fans were not sold on Kup's colors, which made him look mostly grey.

After a hiatus from announcing upcoming releases, Takara Tomy is back in force with three awesome announcements. First there is a "Legends" release of Sharkticon with a Sweep Titan Master/Headmaster ("Legends" being the name of the toy line, not the size class in this case). Next up are Hot Rod and Kup, but not just redecos of the existing figures. These releases will also include fully transformable Targetmaster figures as well!

Toy Review: "Transformers Adventure" Roadblock with Targetmaster

Roadblock is not the brightest or fastest Decepticon around, but what he lacks in grace he more than makes up for in sheer power! Paired with Targetmaster, his power is greater than ever before! Check out out my review of "Transformers Adventure" Roadblock!

Toy News: Revised mock up of Collector's Club exclusive Spinister

The Transformers Collector's Club has updated its Twitter account with a news item about the upcoming Spinister figure that is part of their Subscription Service 4.0. This figure is a redeco of the Alpha Bravo figure and comes with two Targetmaster partners (presumably named Singe and Hairsplitter so long as trademark issues don't get in the way). The new mock up shows the character in both modes with Targetmaster partners attached. What do you think?
