Blog #1432: Toy Review: Transformers: Legends Deluxe Slugslinger & Targetmaster Caliburst

Transformers: Legends Deluxe Slugslinger & Targetmaster Caliburst

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

Headmaster Slugslinger is not all that different Titan Master Caliburst. Caliburst was one of the only Hasbro Titan Masters to be properly painted.

Caliburst

Caliburst looks great. I love these Targetmasters.

Slugslinger

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!

    The Japanese version here is actually closer to the Japanese Headmasters cartoon. To say it is less accurate is not exactly true. For me I thought the hasbro version was super bland. I hate to be a pessimist but toy colors have been done before. I’m glad takara did gave us G1 anime colors because it’s rare that anyone ever did it.
