Article: Action Masters Reborn Introduction

Action Masters were one of the most maligned segments of the "Transformers" line from Generation One. However over the years fans have begun to appreciate some of the characters and oddity around these non-transformable figures. Over the years new figures have been made based on Action Masters, but there are still several characters that need updating. In this speculative series of articles I take a look at who has been redone and who still needs to be redone (and how). Today I kick off this series with my introduction to "Action Masters Reborn"!
