Transformers: Legends Deluxe Triggerhappy & Blowpipe

Legends Deluxe Triggerhappy is repainted and remolded from Transformers: Generations Deluxe Triggerhappy. Headmaster Triggerhappy is repainted from Titan Master Blowpipe. He comes with a new mold Targetmaster. Read my review of the USA Triggerhappy & Blowpipe here.

Headmaster Triggerhappy

The Takara version of Triggerhappy has the same head sculpt with some paint changes to his eyes. I kind of prefer the USA version.

Blowpipe

Blowpipe is awesome. I love the colors and the weapon design is reminiscent of the G1.

Triggerhappy

Triggerhappy’s only remolding is the port to mount the Targetmaster on top of his vehicle mode. He’s bluer than the USA version. They also used white plastic rather than the gray the USA version uses. This is an enormous improvement.

Overall: The Targetmaster and paintjob makes this superior to the USA version.

Thanks for reading!

    As usual, Takara tried to be more faithful to characters than Hasbro: I appreciate it but this time the execution puzzled me.
    I don’t see the point to include an oversized figure like that when Headmasters and Targetmasters partners are supposed to be of the same size. Customize a titan master pilot into a gun is relatively easy for me, so why Takara simply didn’t retool them? A retooled pilot would be able to enter the cockpit.
    However, nice effort from Takara.
