Headrobots' not "Cerebros" release my take

Motto: "Power to the strong and the right!"
Weapon: Plasma Cannon
Okay, I don't exactly own one but have handled it from a batch own by a friend of mine who imports the stuff.

I don't have pics but I'll give a description of it.

1.It comes in a plastic blister pack with the card back art. Closes like a clam shell with no staples

2.Comes with 2 "headmaster figures. A more "anime looking "Fortress" head and a professionally sculpted alleged Hirofumi Ishikawa design of the "Cerebros" head (whose original(?)that was once sold on ebay by **** :lol: )

3.Mini(literally than the original black Mastersword of the original Fortress figure) Master sword with a red transparent central crystal design.

My take.

Concept and design wise, I give it a 5/5. Great implementation but kind of loose when connecting to the "Transtector". The pseudo humanoid figures, to my perspective, kind of small and very loose (rectified if you want with clear nail polish).........maybe too poseable for my taste.

The Master sword is too small. 'nuff said.

Over all, a great effort, though too pricey (understandable in asense because of the the rareness of the subject upgrade) for my taste.

I salute Headrobots for this "gargantuan" effort, pardon the pun for Fortmax but maybe, a few ratcheted joints on the arms and legs? The sample I handle was soooooooooo floppy.
My Transformers purchasing habits, here are my following considerations so as not to DERAIL thread discussions:

1. Not hung up or hate scale. MP, Legend, Voyager....I'll take 'em all.
2. Price is indeed a big factor but if its a need to own one even if I have to eat "Scooby Snacks " for a month then so be it.
3. I tilt towards Tomy products over Hasbro because it's got lots'a bling (Legends Jetfire being the exception)
