>>6111579>Yes, at the cost of the robot having a head
Not by using another titan master as the weapon, why pull off hotrod's head for example when you can have the brawn TM and vehicle act in place, makes for a good "gotta buy them all" thing which looks good from a retail stand point, and kids would be switching heads around alot similar how in the japanese headmasters series how the main autobots would swap heads to share abilities and power, here you can "pretend" to give hotrod more physical power by swapping heads and swap back when you want hotrod piloting the show.>hardly the same as a targetmaster
Because its not, a master of all trades as >>6111581
additionally points out, master of none, I find them fiddly at best and in most cases the guns to be meh (though the secondary vehicle forms even more so), then of course qc issues like the crashbash dino having a connector to fit inside of intended 5mm ports to be frustrating when it doesn't fit or gets stuck requiring additional, non-child friendly tools to get out (but that's factory qc and not so much design).>stupid, a poor homage at best
Smart in some ways, from a retailer standpoint, as well as the intended consumer ie a kid with a g1 eccentric parent who may encourage to grab a krok and apeface just because they remember the characters and show the kid a portion of the world he grew up in.
Of course said g1 centric parent would also have to concede times change, for better AND for worse, given time deluxes may reach voyager level prices
For a g1 diehard collector who has never let go of his g1 days they should consider not getting these newer toys, if its not the cheap hollow feeling they get its the fact they cost more than they were once worth, kinda like complaining how kids socks don't fit an adult
