I would be more in love with Headrobots...if I had a few more Universe Onslaught molds to work with.

Don't mean to knock them. I really love the idea and execution. Just literally wish I had a few more Universe Onslaught molds (and Hardhead) so I could enjoy!

I really like Onslaught, think it looks awesome. I think the head he comes with is better. Never got the point of Head Robots or Headmasters, while the head is in robot form the main bot is headless which seems daft to me. Target Masters I understand.

This looks pretty good but I am not sure I'm willing to buy this set again. Give me something new HR.

Check the clearance sections a Walmart, that's were I pick mine up for only $11. Also I have seen this figure at TJ Maxx a few times, good hunting!

I think this set would be a yes if it was just a new head, making it much cheaper, like the Blood set. I really don't need a non headmaster becoming a headmaster.

I think the new head for the onslaught mold thing is played out. Move on to something else Headrobots. It made sense for the Hardhead repaint but the rest is just silly.

Not much compulsion to get this. Another exclusive for a con maybe?

I made a quick digibash to compare these two... Stronghold VS the Japanese rich blue Onslaught... that's how I'd intend to display them.

I hate it when 3rd parties attack a mold I actually PLAN to GET, but isn't still available were I live. Aftermarket Value is murder.... this guy's been re-done like twice now? Sheesh... I don't know what's worse, the fact that I want this mold, or the even worse fact that these 3rd party companies make them look so much cooler!

Another Onslaught based kit? Enough already move onto another mold.

While it DOES look great... I'm in agreement. I'm ready for some different figures. :P

I don't like the head. As Onslaught, it's too big. If I were to get this, I'd just use the new weapons with the stock head and either set the headmaster figure aside or use it on a G1 Headmaster body. I think it would look really good with the Takara version though.

Agreed. New head looks better than Stronghold head IMO, but how many clones with different heads do we really need? Also, kind of dislike when promo art shows dual bayonets but you only get one (especially when you get two guns that it could attach to). :(

I have their version of Hardhead, or whatever they called him (can't remember off the top of my head) and I love it. Quality, accessories, and price if I remember were all on the ball.

This though, while it looks equally impressive, I'm just not feeling it. The original head was pretty suited to Onslaught, and I know I gave him someone else's big schmancy gun to beef him up so I don't need to worry about lack of firepower. Looks pretty solid for anyone who does want it, though.

Same regarding the single knife.

The point is to give the repaints their own head and characters. Redoing Onslaught, plus two Hardheads, Stronghold... I'd call it overkill if I didn't really LIKE them all.

Cue crying wallet. :ic$:

I personally like the look of the new head. Not sure if I'm gonna have him as Onslaught though. Can always use new characters. I'll probably use this head and have him on the Japanese version of Onslaught, use the TFcon one and stickers with the US version. Nice to know that I'll have four characters with this mold and all with different heads (G2 Clench, Hardhead)! :D

All of you hush Ive been waiting on these weaponry for my Onslaught forever. The added knives and headrobot are just icing on the cake.
Re: Headrobots Butcher Images (1271574)

Holy crap. How'd I forget about G2 Clench!!?? (I guess because he's boxed up in the Botcon set.)

That gives us...

Onslaught (japanese blue version adding new head)
Stronghold (USA gray version with new head)
Hardhead - comic version
Hardhead - cartoon version
G2 Clench (Botcon)

The ole Onslaught shelf is starting to get heavy! Debating buying a second Hardhead for that extra head. Hmmmmm.
