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.

This looks pretty cool and I'm a sucker for a good 'H' tank. I might get him, but I'll wait for the reviews first.

It would really help if pre-orders (or ToyWorld and other 3Ps) would give a better estimate of release instead of Q1/Q2. I'm pretty sure we've all been burned by changes in release, and I think a month should be adhered to on when to expect something.

As it stands, there's simply too much coming out right now and through April (that we know of) to just pre-order this and potentially blow a budget. This might help me since I'll have to wait until after release and hopefully some favorable reviews have been posted.

I also share sentiments of previous posters that I'm not fond of the price either, but I figured the quote on ToyWorld's site wouldn't be indicative of what folks in North America could expect (based on GrindRod's listed price compared to my usual go-to retailers). However, if HardBone is near the size of Hegemon then at least there's precedent. From my previous crude observations, he's larger than MP Lambor but I'm only estimating that he's about the same size as Hegemon. TW released the pic of Aurora and HB, as well as a previous comparison pic of Aurora and GR who are the same height.

So, Erector, GrindRod, and HardBone walk into a bar... 8-}

Shouldn't they team up with Thrust to walk in and out of the tunnel repeatedly? Or maybe the tunnel gets smaller and they need to let out a Blot or two to lube it up?

I bit. I couldn't resist. I kept going back to BBTS and staring at the pics over and over again and the colors and details of the thing totally sold me. He will be mine :D!

Me too. Cant have the other Headmasters looking G1 and Hardhead looking all Hasbro-ish. But hopefully Headrobots will make Skyhammer into a decent Highbrow to complete the team.

I skipped out on FP's Chromedome (I always loathed his color scheme and wasn't too impressed by their efforts on that figure), but as I said, I likes me some H tanks, and Hardhead was the original (and best) in my opinion.

If anyone does Apeface, Snapdragon and Mindwipe I'll be all over it. I always wanted the first 2 as a kid and always saw them sort of as a set (thanks to how they always seemed paired up in The Rebirth) and I did have Mindwipe as a kid and he was always one of my favorite toys (I just always wished I could flip his wings up in bot mode :P).

I bit on this guy too.

I have a custom I did, as well as the headrobots upgrade kit.

I'll probably get rid of the Hasbro + headrobots set.

I also suspect the Chromedome will be the only FP headmaster I get, and that was mostly for the charity angle.
