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:

Motto: "Motive is a universal weakness."
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.

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

Preordered nonetheless.
