I wonder if the head is the same size as the original Fortmax? If so, could it also be attached to the Headmaster body?

Seems a waste of materials, honestly. Plus, that kind of weight hanging off of the jack? That can cause damage in time. Kinda like heavy keychains wear out an ignition switch in an automobile's steering column.

Regional considerations.

Would much rather a useable better sculpted non transforming head for cerebros or even better a reissue of one or all of the 4 heads to the 1987 Autobot headmasters over novelty stuff like this I will never have a use for.

That's why it's a special region locked promo. I too would have hoped for a re-issue of the Japan only beast headmasters...........but then again, what would it be used for if you don't have a transtector body?

It's so left field I want one. I doubt it's very large, let alone large enough to replace a regular max head. I'd guess its Kabaya sized or smaller.

I'm not too sure about this. I think I like the coins better.
