    Product Description
    This subject of this article goes by multiple names that apply to other articles as well. See Recoil (disambiguation), Flintlock.Recoil is an Autobot-allied Nebulan Targetmaster from the Generation 1 continuity family. Kup, that's not a Targetmaster. That's just some guy in a Trailbreaker costume. Put him down!One of the older Nebulans to join the Autobots, Recoil (aka Flintlock) was a former All-World Prismaball champion on his home planet, until age finally caught up with him. While helping to keep Nebulos safe is part of why he agreed to undergo binary bonding to become a Targetmaster, a large part was to prove to himself as much as to others that he still had what it takes. Transforming into a version of Kup's original old-style musket laser, Recoil has found a good match with the crusty Autobot, both seeking the respect they feel their age and experience deserves.Contents1 Fiction1.1 Marvel The Transformers comics1.2 The Transformers cartoon1.3 Transformers in 3-D1.4 Ladybird Books continuity1.5 15 Go!

After undergoing the bio-engineering process that allowed them to transform into replacement weapons, they partnered with the six Autobots who had surrendered their weapons some months earlier. Recoil partnered with Kup. He first saw action in the Autobots' unsuccessful defense of The Nursery; though the Targetmaster upgrade they had undergone allowed them to overpower the enemy, the ensuing firefight led to the facility's destruction. Shortly afterwards the Autobot forces fled to join those on Earth in an attempt to lure their enemies away and save Nebulos from further harm. Brothers in Armor!! Recoil and Kup, along with the other Autobot Targetmasters, were selected to accompany Fortress Maximus to Earth to rescue Buster Witwicky, brother of the newly binary-bonded Spike Witwicky who proceeded to introduce his team to his father. The group's rescue attempt to the Decepticons island base was ultimately unsuccessful. The Desert Island of Space!When the Autobots surrendered to Scorponok's Decepticons as part of a plan to ally against the coming of Unicron, Apeface happily snatched gun-mode Recoil away from Kup. Kup punched the Decepticon and picked up his partner, challenging Apeface to laugh now. Calm words from Optimus Prime finally prompted Kup to surrender his partner/weapon to Soundwave, who put Recoil in a box and ordered him to revert to his humanoid form. Surrender! The Transformers cartoonVoice actor: Johnny Haymer (English); Eiji Yanagisawa (Japanese), Hans-Rainer Müller (German, The Rebirth, Part 1), Peter Musäus (German, The Rebirth, Part 2) Where do you keep that thing, Max? Total Recoil!Recoil was a freedom fighter in the group led by Gort. After a group of Autobots were mistaken for Hive machines, he took part in the ambush to capture them. It wasn't long before a Decepticon attack put the Nebulans straight as far as who was on whose side, and Recoil boasted that the group knew the weak points on all of the Hive's machines. The Rebirth, Part 1Once Targetmaster technology was stolen from the Decepticons, Recoil volunteered for the process, and was partnered with Kup. He greeted Optimus Prime to the planet and informed the Autobot leader that the Nebulans had been told a lot about him. The Rebirth, Part 2 Like the other Nebulans, he traveled to Cybertron with the Autobots, and helped to close the Plasma Energy Chamber and bring a new Golden Age to the planet. Afterward, they returned to Nebulos to rid the planet of the Hive's machines. The Rebirth, Part 3 Transformers in 3-DKup wielded Recoil when the Autobots faced the Destructons on a barren and distant moon. The Destructons proved too powerful for the Autobots to handle, and so Kup stayed behind to distract them while the rest of his team escaped, possibly spelling doom for both himself and his targetmaster partner. The War Against the Destructons, Chapter 1 of 3 Ladybird Books continuity Your ventriloquist act sucks, Hot Rod.When the Autobots on Nebulos were running low on lubricant, Hot Rod happened to ask Recoil if he knew somewhere on Nebulos they could get oil. As it turned out, Recoil grew up on tales of a great lake of oil on Nebulos that, legend had it, vanished during an earthquake which caused it to drain away, mysteriously hiding underneath the surface where no Nebulan was ever able to locate it since. Convenient, that. Autobots Strike Oil 15 Go! Go!Recoil stood by as Kup berated Wheelie for his perverted ways after he peeked up Teletraan 15's skirt. Kup Volume United Kup wielded Recoil during a mission to Nebulos to recover the antidote for a nano-virus. The Fierce Fighting on Planet Nebulos Titans Return marketing materialThe ancient Titan Master Flintlock granted his larger partner Sergeant Kup the ability to fire metal-melting acid ammo. Titans Return Flintlock & Sergeant Kup packaging bio Legends comicMain article: Sue Faireborn#Unite Warriors/Legends Toys Generation 1 The only way to get Kup to agree to a caregiver was to dress him up like a gun.Kup (Targetmaster, 1987) Recoil was first released in 1987, boxed with the Targetmaster version of Kup. Like most Targetmaster weapons, his transformation is simple: simply fold his legs up and the barrels of his gun form are revealed. Recoil could be placed in either of Kup's hands or in a plug in the middle of his rear tray. This resulted in a noticeable difference between Kup's Targetmaster mold and his earlier release: his hands and rear tray needed to be retooled to add pegholes large enough to hold his partner. This mold was also used to make Barrelroller.More information on Recoil (with Kup) at TFU.info The Transformers Collection Future Cybertron (Transformers Collection, 2005)Japanese ID number: TF-20 Targetmaster Kup and Recoil got their first Japanese release in The Transformers Collection in a pack with Wheelie. There are no notable differences between the "reissue" Recoil and the original Hasbro release. United Recoil (Targetmaster Micron, 2011-01-01) A redeco of Power Core Combiners Airlift, United Recoil is a Toys"R"Us exclusive "Targetmaster Micron" available only on January 1, 2011 with the purchase of 3000 yen worth of United product. He transforms into a double-barreled gun that can be held by any toy using 5mm weapon-mount points, though he is meant to complement the United release of Kup. His instructions only show the hand-held mode, but as he is a Power Core Combiners Mini-Con mold, he can also be converted into a compact weapon meant for vehicle-mode use (attached by his Powerlinx socket), plus an "armor" mode that connects to a Power Core Combiners Commander toy's chest or back-mounted Powerlinx plug for use in either of their robot modes. Recoil is one of those rare cases where a redeco was released before or around the same time as the figure he is redecoed from. At the time of Recoil's release, Airlift had only been found overseas and very limited numbers in North America. This mold was also used to make United Targetmaster Micron Spoilsport and Deduce. Generations Flintlock & Sergeant Kup (Deluxe, 2017)Part of the fourth wave of the Titans Return line, "Flintlock" (trademark issues) can transform into a head for any Deluxe, Voyager, and Leader figures of the same line, but is of course intended to be combined with Titans Return Sergeant Kup. His Titan Master's head mode is inspired by Marvel Comics' Kup design.Flintlock was retooled to make the head stages of Legends Targetmaster Chear and Tribute Orion Pax. Legends Targetmaster Chear (Targetmaster Kup) (Deluxe, 2017-09-30)Japanese ID Number: LG46Legends Recoil is a new mold included with Targetmaster Chear, transforming into a double-barreled gun based on his original toy.In fiction, this toy represents Sue as a Targetmaster, but is kept on this page for informative purposes.
