Blog #1454: Toy Review: Transformers Masterpiece Targetmaster Hot Rod & Firebolt

Transformers Masterpiece Targetmaster Hot Rod & Firebolt

Read my review of the original version of this Masterpiece Hot Rod mold.


Sorry about the photos. My camera started acting weird and some of the pictures came out lousy. Firebolt is pretty cool. I know the original Targetmasters only had painted eyes, but they could have given him a paint app or two.

Hot Rod

Targetmaster Hot Rod’s color scheme is based on his appearance in The Rebirth. I kind of love this version. The darker red color looks great and I like the way they colored his legs, even if it’s different from any other appearance or toy than The Rebirth.

Overall: I’m tempted to say he’s for completists only, but the color scheme looks so great, and he has Firebolt, so I have to recommend him.

Thanks for reading!
