With a team-up of characters with the names of Misfire and Aimless, you know they are probably not very good at their jobs. And they aren’t. Misfire is a BIG retool of Triggerhappy. The irony is not lost on this writer, going from Triggerhappy who would shoot and not care where his blaster bolts went, to Misfire, who couldn’t hit anything… at all.
Aimless comes with two cannons that can be put together to form a double-barreled gun. Not that it will help him any.
He is painted up in his pink and white like we saw back in 1987. There are touches of red in there too. He comes with the visor style eyes like he had in the cartoon, but it is blue like his eyes in the toy. NIce compromise.
Misfire comes with the Titan Master Aimless. The two were teamed up back in 1987, where Aimless was a Targetmaster. A Targetmaster named Aimless? As you can guess, he didn’t help Misfire shoot any better. Aimless is a retool of Blowpipe that came with Triggerhappy.
I am really happy with the vehicle mode that they came up with. It is very similar to the G1 version with the double nose cones, and the forward swept wings. Even the legs fold up at the back to form an oversized engine compartment.
Aimless gets a cockpit to sit in, which has been a fantastic touch in this line.
There is a port in the back of Misfire, so the dynamic stands can be used with these figures. It allows for great posing.
The Cybertronian jet mode has a great look overall. Big in the back, and sweeping to a point in the front. We tend to lose engine nozzles in these Deluxe figures from time to time. In Triggerhappy, the engines were attached to his wings. So when they made the retool to Misfire, he lost the engines. We have ti imagine they are back there somewhere.
I am so happy with the amount of work that Hasbro has put into these retools. They are very different figures than the first version that came out. I hope we see this continue as we move into Power of the Primes.
