If RK or BBTS stock him, I'm in.

I'd like to see the FP versions, but lately, I've preferred the offerings from these guys better.

Currently looking for:

So he's sized somewhere between MP Lambor/Sideswipe and Hegemon. He'll be taller than FP's Code (Chromedome) but "scale" is relative. Intrigued, but I do enjoy my HardHead + HR combo.

You may have to wait a while. I don't think that a Hard Head was among any that has been announced by FP to date.

I didnt know that. I might just have to pick this guy up then. I guess I can live with the scale difference since he is a tank. Is Fansproject going to do Highbrow ? If not, Headrobots still has some life blood...

I remember Fansproject concept art for:

Chromedome
Brainstorm
Minerva
weirdwolf
Mindwipe
Skullcruncher painted as Gator Prime

That's a pretty decent price. It's a good looking fig, but I'm still happy with my Classics Hard Head + HeadRobots kit.


Yes, I am too. Which Hardhead HeadRobots kit do you have? I have Hothead, but wish I had the comic version.

Excellent looking figure if a bit... too neon green for my taste. I'll hold out for a FP Hardhead.

I'm just not really seeing this as Hardhead for some reason, but still an excellent looking figure.

Maybe as a pre-Beast Wars Rhinox?

Compared to Function X Code, the headmaster on Hardbone has articulation, and Code has ankle tilts... :lol:

Oh my God! How wrong was I about this figure? :oops:

I still think the tank mode is a little flat, and it's looking like he may be big enough to go toe-to-toe with Universe Hardhead (which equals a bit too big for me), but it's really looking like a badass figure. The colours need a little work (less neon green and perhaps grey up the black) and 'Duros' needs a complete palette overhaul, but I think I'm actually onboard for this guy.

I too am now tempted. The size difference doesn't really bother me much. It makes sense to have a larger, kick-ass weapons specialist...
I once read that self deprecating humor is a sign of intelligence.

That's Aurora, the next Throttlebot to be released (hopefully) soon. It's a homage to Searchlight.

As for Hardbone... Hells yeah!

Make the faceplate yellow & mute the green a bit and it'd be perfect! Either way, I'll definitely be preordering the second it's available.

Hmmm.... I am liking it but as others have mentioned a little bright on the green. And the headmaster needs some beige.

Me neighter, but considering it's larger and beefier than Chromedome, it may be about right.

Preordered nonetheless.
