Legends Deluxe Slugslinger is repainted from Transformers: Generations Deluxe Slugslinger. Headmaster Slugslinger is repainted from Titan Master Caliburst. He comes with a new mold Targetmaster. Read my review of the USA Slugslinger & Caliburst here.
Headmaster Slugslinger is not all that different Titan Master Caliburst. Caliburst was one of the only Hasbro Titan Masters to be properly painted.
Caliburst looks great. I love these Targetmasters.
Unlike most of the Titans Return line, Slugslinger had paint apps rather than stickers, so this is one of the rare case, where I think the USA version is the better looking toy. It’s also closer to the G1 toy in overall color. I really do like the Japanese version’s blue, though it is less accurate. I wish his gray robot parts had been white like many of the other Legends Headmasters. I really like the gold painted circles on his chest. I wish the Hasbro version had those.
Overall: The USA version is the overall better one, but you can’t go wrong with the Japanese version for the Targetmaster.
Thanks for reading!
