Valued site sponsor TFsource has put up a pre-order for the newest product from Third Party HeadRobots. It is Hothead, a headmaster add-on for Universe Hardhead. This is a high-quality upgrade kit that contains a transforming head with ball joints and clear blue eyepiece, two photon rifles, one assault cannon, and a backpack. The backpack features many mounting points so the guns can be configured in several different ways. Feel free to pre-order Hothead over at TFsource here. The new product page also brings in new pictures of the Hothead upgrade, which you can view below.

Figures. picked up a hardhead on ebay for 32 shipped about a month ago, then yesterday found one in walmart for 20 bucks.

Once this set comes out I think I will be getting my 32 bucks back!

I'll be getting this myself, seeing as i'll have extra cash from not buying anything from Botcon this year...

Damn I was really wanting to resist this item but it looks like I'll give in and order this along with the Perfect Effect Frenzy/Rumble figures though I'd really like to add at least one more thing before I order but unless FP puts up a pre-order for the Rodimus Upgrade next month I'll have to deal with only getting two things because I'm sure if I wait till June the Frenzy/Rumble set will be sold out.

I wonder if those added cannons ontop of the torso can swivel up and down. Also wondering if the head goes overtop the original, or does the original get removed.

Seen someone say they wanted a mock-up so I made one.
Didn't take long.
Enjoy!

*To the post above, The original head is removed, and the new one takes it's place. They also say that the electronics are not effected by the swap as the lite-up part is in the neck. -Speculation: The front of the robot has a peg in the chest to connect to the back pack in head mode. The guns attach to the back pack and rotate up and down.... But lets be honest.. the one big grey canon will be on his shoulder and the two green guns in his hands... as "insert deity" intended! <3 Headomasitahs!

If I could find a reasonably priced Hardhead I'd be all over this. :-(

That's what I love/hate about these 3rd party releases. Whether it be Classics Magnus, Universe Bruticus, Universe Hardhead, etc., when these molds were first released you couldn't give these away. The prices then march upward the instant any semblance of an upgrade is presented.

I have the Cobra head from Head Robots and I gotta say the quality it top notch. Definitely looking forward to this. Hardhead just isn't Hardhead without a big blocky transforming head atop 'is shoulders.

I'll definitely be picking this up. I went out and found a Hardhead on clearance as soon Headrobots made mention of this. Hopefully BBTS will have their pre-order up tomorrow.

I've had a Hardhead since he was released, I'm looking forward to this upgrade very much.

I have Hardhead so this might actually interest me. A few questions:

1. Why did the take a picture of they prototype from behind ??? Cameraman....HELLO ???

2. Im assuming the old head must be removed or does it fit over the Onslaught shaped head ??? Is this made for easy transformation or will I need a screwdriver every time I want to transform him to vechicle mode ???

3. Can you remove the head in vechicle mode ??? hy would I want a tank with a head ???

1. It's a teaser shot, it was done that way intentionally.

2. You remove the original head which leaves a post the new head can attach to, you won't need a screwdriver every time.

3. Yes you can remove the head in alt mode, they show a pic of the head in robot mode riding in the alt mode.

Well thats cool. I probally will want one, since I have both Hardhead and Onslaught. It will seperate them better. I had took Hardhead out of my main display case.

I dont like "teaser shots" If I want to get teased, a robots butt isnt doing it for me...LOL :lol:

I talked with these guys today at the Canadian Collectible Toy Expo. They confirmed that the original head gets removed and this new one goes in its place. They also said there'd be a retro-kit to fit this new head onto G1 Hardhead. I saw a cell phone picture that showed details of the hands, and was told they'd been molded so they could hold Lego-size weapons and accessories.

I asked when it would be available, and they said their best guess was some time in July. When I pointed out that it wouldn't be ready in time for Botcon, I was told that they won't be going to Botcon because there's rumors that Hasbro is scrutinizing their products and they don't want to draw any more attention to themselves.

Dunno if that's true, but that's what they said. If it is true, that's really a shame that Hasbro might start going after the fandom that's kept the franchise alive all these years. I mean, it's not like Hasbro is losing any money from these third-party homages and add-ons; if anything it's strengthening the overall popularity of Transformers.
