Hasbro Transformers Generations Titans Return Misfire Action FigureAs a buddy of mine said, Titans Return Misfire is so good you'll hate the stickers on your other toys. The coloring is great, the deco does a nice job matching the original toy with a blue visor and a purple face - he's generally grey faced and red visored in the media (and Takara-Tomy's version of this toy.) The Japanese version also has a Targetmaster buddy, which this one does not. I still love it.

The tiny head robot is a lot like Blowpipe - 1.5-inches tall, same mold, but Aimless has a painted face and visor. A little paint goes a long way, and this 5-jointed figure fits nicely in the spacecraft's cockpit. The sculpting is pretty good and this form factor, it turns out, will continue in Power of the Primes - if you like it you'll get more. I like the face plate on the back, but I'm a sucker for a big, bright visor across a face.

Transformation is a lot like Triggerhappy [FOTD #1,610]. The figures share some parts, but not enough that it might be obvious - the body is different, but there are similar leg parts. You should be able to figure it out without a fight, and things go together quite nicely without a fight.

The jet mode is a delight, with the fanciful Cybertronian starfighter looking less like any specific vehicle beyond the original 1987 toy. I'd say I even like it more than the original, as it's a bit more streamlined and less chunky. The robot has mode has about 17 meaningful points of articulation, including what you've come to expect on an average toy. They're not Masterpiece Editions, but you get enough fun for the money that you will no doubt continue buying them as long as new ones enter your field of vision. The deco on the wings is exquisite, and the chest paint is actually pretty sharp too. Take a look at the tampographs on the shins - gorgeous! I don't love stickers, and if Hasbro switched entirely to this kind of printing I'd even suffer a small price increase. It's just better.

If you've enjoyed the More Than Meets the Eye comics, you're no doubt curious if Hasbro will complete the team of Scavengers - a bunch of Decepticons that are doing about as well as you might expect when you're in a war and your side loses. Krok is in the main line, with several others having been made as Club or Convention toys (or a sorta-kinda homage somewhere) so far. They're not huge players unless you're a fan of the new era of fiction, despite brief appearances in cartoons you probably saw once or twice when you were a kid. Or maybe your dad saw them. At this point, we're old and seeing toys like this from the tail end of what was really the heyday of the first generation will be a dwindling treat. It looks like we've got a lot of the remaining items from most peoples' wish lists coming up in the next year if the rumors are all true, so hopefully Misfire's ilk will see more toys. Support the obscure - buy one if you see it. It's a good toy and it's not like you've got a box filled with Misfires at home.
