Can't say I much care for any differences from Hasbro's version - especially the face, that just looks atrocious - I must say Loudmouth's vehicle looks beautiful in those colours.

I think Takara messed up with that visor. They made it far too big. The main difference between rebirth and headmasters is the shape of the head not how large the visor is.

I'll reserve judgment but I rather like the Takara head. Somehow I feel that it captures Highbrow's Rebirth personality better. I guess the Hasbro one looks too much like a "tough guy."

Also, is it just me, or does his head kind of look brown in the recent photo? I hope so.

Looks like dark gray with a hint of brown to me.

Finally, I found them. And so, the names:

Driller: モグル moguru, Moguru, or "Mogul". Probably from mogura, or mole
Dino: サーバント sābanto or Sarbant?
Car: カルゴ karugo or Cargo.

Fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath has been keeping an eye on Takara Tomy's releases under the Legends line, and has spotted on site sponsor RobotKingdom's pages some new in-package images of the upcoming Headmaster sets for LG32 Chromedome, LG33 Highbrow and LG34 Mindwipe! We also get to find out the names of the drones that accompany the Titan Masters along with the deluxe body figures: the driller is Moguru, or "Mogul",the dino is Servant, and the car is Cargo.

Also, added in via the official Twitter account, is a group shot of the Autobot Headmasters, including Brainstorm, Hardhead and Cerebros. Check it all out below!

You know, I noticed a trend with the names of the Crashbash drone redecos:

バトラ batora: can be translated as "Butler"
サーバント sābanto: can translated as "Servant"

As in, they're based on words for service jobs. Anybody think those are the intended names, or if there's a pun behind it?

Those box art on the Legends packaging are really stunning! I wonder who is the Japanese artist responsible?

You mean Fortress. Cerebros is treated as a different kind of guy in Japan.
