Transformers Takara Legends LG-52 Misfire
I’ll always have a soft spot for Misfire’s alt mode. It reminds me of Gradius ship from the classic video game, good times.
In the US version, the Headmaster’s is named Aimless and he grants his partner the power to fire ion particle fireblasts.
Personally I like the Takara version colors better, the Hasbro version (based on the G1 toy designs) seemed too dull.
Aimless sports basic articulation.
Thanks to a modified canopy, Aimless can also be equipped on vehicle mode.

Painted c0ckpit hatches on the Takara.
For whatever reason, they decided to put Slugslinger’s crotch on the Takara version instead of totally copying the Hasbro version mold.
The original Decepticon Target Masters!
I’m really glad Takara went the distance and released these guys with separate designs, as opposed to “one mold, different colors” concepts.
