Default Takara Legends Targetmasters - Hasbro release?

Given that the recent Deluxe Titans Return figures have all been released in the Legends line with their Targetmaster companions, what are the chances that Hasbro (or even Takara themselves) will release them as a seperate collectors pack, similar to how Takara released the remoulded/repainted headmasters?

Has there been any rumours to this effect?

No rumours as far as I know but I know I'd probably buy a set of Targetmasters if they did release such a thing

It's believed that the next Generations toy line after TR is going to be Targetmaster oriented. So on the Hasbro side you will probably get the moulds Takara are releasing just a little late if that's correct.

The next line after Titans Return is "Power of the Primes", which implies a lot of Optimus'es, where did you hear that they'd be targetmasters, just wishful thinking of some collectors?

Just wishful thinking.

Toys to life sounds like a better idea personally although what would make more sense (given the name) is a new accessory related gimmick where characters would bulk up to be leaders when a matrix is plugged into their chest...but that's my wishful thinking.

I just want something new, a fresh new gimmick to run with rather than rehashes

Given that the word 'Power' is in the title, maybe the figures will have LED weapons or parts (glowing eyes, fists, faction insignias, etc), kinda sorta like the G2 Laser Rods. That's my guess. Honestly, I have no idea.

Skylanders still works, though nintendo seems to have hit the sweet spot I believe...

As long as the gimmick is not necessary to the enjoyment of the toy I'm all for it

I'm still too far behind technologically my phone can't run most apps
