I don't particularly hate him, but I'd jump at the chance for someone to make a robot head for him.

Not that I mind the human face, but it just seem to me as if Metalhawk needs to hit up the stairmaster. Wishing he was a lil more...IDK, chiseled looking in the face.

ok let me see if i got this straight -
Hasbro forces kotoys to closed down - a ko company that actually give fans what they want (sunstorm/rainmakers/clear convoy/dia convoy ect ect) but yet hasbro give us bullshit like this?

a god awful craptastic gigatron that looks as if a child has put another toys head on a different toys body - a god awful ultra magnus that looks as if it was made up while someone was having a fit - and now 'who ate all the pies' metalhawk....ffs dont they stop half way when making these guys and say 'errr maybe we should start again or do somert better'

christ i always felt energon prime looked like a fat **** but now metalhawk too? i guess we can now put metalhawk/E-Prime together and start making a FAT BOTS CLUB

i mean just look at metalhawk! he looks so fat that if he tried to transform theres no way in hell that fat gits gona take off the ground

Wow, FunPub did it again, another head that had potential and they managed to let it look horrible.

The rest of the figure looks great though.

Just...*sigh*. Well, at least I can say that's money I've saved this year. No, wait, I can't...just blew it all on G1 Star Saber D=. At least that figure looks good though, unlike this hot, juicy, steamy pile of poop that is this year's BotCon set.

To hearken back to a note from a previous post...I'd almost rather see Hasbro, Takaratomo, or whomever is responsible for BotCon exclusives contract out the KO companies that did all the very high quality "reissues" that were sold on KO Toys website! I'll admit that I did buy a couple, and they display damn well! Granted, if I ever part with them, I'll go out of my way to make sure it's known that they aren't real or original...but I digress....

If we could see some of those fine molds just reused officially, even as exclusives, I'd eat that up like candy!

Tiny robot heads are less noticeable than tiny human heads.

In robot mode this figure wouldn't look out of place in the Masters of The Universe series.

As far as the entire boxset goes, whomever at TFCC thought this would be a "must have" must be new to the world of Transformers.
