Transformers Legends LG-37 Jaguar & Bullhorn

Let me start by saying I bought this for the Headmasters. Basically, I guess. Yeah, primarily for the Headmaster Bullhorn. That's not to say the Jaguar toy isn't fun, or desirable at is, it is. It's just that the Hasbro Ravage is just better in almost every way.

I'm a sucker for these little Titan Master/Headmasters that TakaraTomy throws into their versions of the Hasbro Transformers Legends class toys. Because I didn't really need the Jaguar I could have held out for anybody selling just the Bullhorn, but the price was so cheap on the set I just grabbed it. And again, it's not a horrible toy,but when you have one that is so much more perfect it's hard to really gush about this one.

Something about the grey on the Hasbro Ravage and the fact that it breaks up the black, and kind of adds the silver chrome flair that the G1 toy had really does it for me.  The jet mode these guys have is fairly weak anyhow, so neither works for me much. But if I had to pick, I'd go for Ravage here too. About the only place the TakaraTomy Jaguar outshines the Hasbro Ravage is in the device mode, and really it's only because of the label used for the screen.

It's absolutely a matter of opinion, and I have heard feedback for and against both. I just prefer the nod to the G1 cassette form more than the probably more proper data readings design. As much as I've downplayed Jaguar here, I think he is still better than Stripes, the (so far) Hasbro exclusive Titans Return pre-use of Ravage. Stripes just kind of sucks.

Turning to the part of this set I was more excited about, the Headmaster Bullhorn! Admittedly I barely see Bullhorn's anime look in this toy, but it's different enough from the Hasbro version to keep me excited. I didn't see much of Horri-Bull's Headmaster in Terri-Bull either. I love the fact sculpt, such a sour puss face.

That about wraps this up. I can say, if you're on the fence this set should be available for a little while in the $18-$22 range, so not outrageous. But I'd probably act sooner than later because you never know which of these toys will rise in price later. Til next time...
