Centurion has left the factory awhile ago and will be arriving in hand to distributors very soon!

We want to share the next generation of headrobots so there is time to buy the bodies.

For darksol, the head and figure can now turn into bat. It will come with a cape, there are a lot of parts and it is still being refined, you can see some of our development and how dramatically parts change, this has been in refinement for over a year and it will keep getting refined until we are happy.

Savant is complete though no tooling has been started.

We are excited to announce a limited run of Courageous recolor of Centurion. Like the Gyro resin kit this is limited to 200 pieces to megatoyfan. Unlike Gyro this is injection molded ABS plastic on clamshell with exclusive card. The set comes with two heads, two head adaptors, and a blue colored clear sword. For last year a lot of people were upset about not being able to buy, this year keep in mind:

FRIDAY, MARCH 30. Sales start 3 PM central time. Courageous will be listed up in batches throughout the day and into Saturday if necessary.

Darksol looks pretty sweet and Savant looks pretty good too.

And now the prices of Mindwipe and Skyhammer skyrocket...

Couragous doesn't interest me, hopefully the others will see a wider release.

They both looks sweet, but for some reason, I feel each upgrade sorta detracts some of the already great elements. With Mindwipe, the Vehicle mode is much uglier, but I guess you can just take the guns off and let Vorath fly around in his own bat mode. And for Skyhammer, the rotor blades in vehicle mode destroy the Hind chopper appeal, and also detract the robot modes neat arrangment of the propperlors. But... I am a sucker for headmasters, so I will probably DEFINITELY get Darksol... Just so that I atleast have the sweet option to give him a real bat mode. Also, kudos to headrobots matching the purple.

EDIT: Hmm, just realized Vorath doesn't have a robot mode.... don't know if I like that too much :???:

Check Targets and Walmarts, I just found Skyhammer for $15 last week at a Target.

May try to find another one now.

The cape made me laugh. Really loud and in a bad way.

Who is Savant supposed to turn Skyhammer into?

Oh wow! Friggin' Highbrow! I'm loving him and that Mindwipe. Love that fan mode. Both definite must buys.

Same here. Both Darksol & Savant look potentially really cool, but too bad both figures are the completely wrong color for the homages.

I wonder if Hasbro has considered a Highbrow repaint of Skyhammer.

Now might be a good time, are you listening Hasbro??? You too can profit off 3rd parties. Unlike Hardhead where the upgrade came out when the figure was mostly off shelves. Now if you put out the repaint to take advantage of the upgrade you can sell a lot of figures. However it wont happen because it would be like condoning 3rd party practices.

Well, I thought they already did that and that was why we got that Battle In Space pack with that ugly Hot Rod to put on Protector armors.

There's such a market for alternate heads these guys could have field day. 10 pack of Junkion heads please.

Thanks for the info on Highbrow. This guy will be awesome with my Fortress Maximus...

Anyone know if there is another mold than Universe Onslaught variants that has the same head plug that would work with most Headrobot kits?

This shows a big step up for the HeadRobots crew, and I am looking forward to picking up the Darksol upgrade! So many extra pieces, I love the use of the fan-mode for a giant bat, and also good job on filling that huge gap in Mindwipe's chest.

Savant looks cool too. So, HR is really trying to get us new versions of all HeadMasters. Woo!
