I’ve never been a big fan of the Targetmaster gimmick, and the Target Masters that came with the recent Takara Legends versions of Titans Return figures I found to be flimsy and disapointing. Nevertheless, I thought I’d give these a try. Blowpipe’s robot mode is nicer than Firedrive’s due to the fact that he has some colour on him. Whilst the massive handle poking out of his chest is a bit awkward looking, it is accurate to the G1 toy, so does evoke a bit of nostalgia. He has basic articulation only and the plastic feels very light, but he stands well and has a good amount of sculpted detail. Transformation to gun mode is simple but effective and everything pegs together securely to produce a gun that can easily be used by larger figures without parts coming apart, or moving out of their intended position. The gun does look a bit daft though with one of the two parallel barrels being longer than the other. I never like this look on the original figure, nor on any other figure that has replicated this look since (Cybertron Safeguard). The effects part with this figure is the best of the first wave. It can be used as either a firing effect, or as black damage on larger figures. Excellent versatility that really increases the play / display options. I just wish we got more than one of these effects parts included in the pack.
