Leader Destruction Squad
The Leader Destruction Squad are third-party Transformer homages to three Targetmaster partners from 1987.
High Calibur is "The Slinger of Slugs", Pipe Blower is "The Itchy Trigger" and No Aim is "The Missed Shot". Their names are not mentioned on the packaging, but were mentioned in promotional material.
Renders of High Caliber, No Aim and Pipe Blower were posted to the MasterShooter Collectibles Facebook page in January 2012.
The Leader Destruction Squad was released in June 2013.
The Good Morning, Cybertron podcast for June 3rd, 2013 discussed the Leader Destruction Squad and the Crusaders in the news.
The L.D.S. are on a mission to kill the Leader of the Automated Robots. Despite the fact that he won't stay in the grave, they are convinced they can put him there permanently, because he is actually the evil one. The Deceptive Constructs have deceived them into thinking they are fighting for good, while actually performing evil deeds. Good always conquers evil, yet they can't understand why all their attempts to eliminate the Leader have failed. Maybe one day the Crusaders will get through to them and save them from a fate that awaits them at the end of the road. In the meantime, the L.D.S are a dangerous threat.
