Review: Dr. Wu DW-M06 Veteran Upgrade Kit

Time to go off script, and look at a Third-Party Transformers add-on set; this is the Dr. Wu DW-M06 Veteran Upgrade Kit for Transformers the Last Knight, Voyager Class Hound! Dr. Wu is known for their impressive weapon kits that are meant to complete a character’s accessories. On some occasions Dr. Wu will even release pieces to fix the appearance too. This small set is a wonderful combination of both aspects for Hound; with a truck cab that transforms into a more accurate triple-barrel mini-gun, a rifle, and animation accurate…

Review: Transformers Legends LG-52 Targetmaster Misfire

Targetmaster LG-52 Misfire is another great release in Takara’s Transformers Legends line. Seeing as it is the second out of the main three Targetmasters it is great to see that it outshines Triggerhappy in many ways.

Aimless may not be too different than Blowpipe in the grand scheme of things, but it does have enough differences to help…

Review: Transformers Takara Legends LG-49 Targetmaster Triggerhappy

Hello Hero Club, this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review. Transformers Takara Legends LG-49 Triggerhappy is an example of how a bit of extra polish can make the overall presentation that much better. The Hasbro version of Triggerhappy was decent enough, however the new white and potentially different shade of blue color scheme that is featured on the Takara version of the character is stronger in my opinion. Not only that is great to see the first Decepticon Targetmaster (sans Nightstick from Generations Deluxe Class Cyclonus)…
