"So toots, you say you want to make to be a big Hollywood star"- Wheelie.

different shades of orange too. Kinda like the Hasbro version. Except this one looks way better.I love the clear cockpit on this one.

I actually prefer HASBRO's smoky-tinted windows on Wheelie.

But, I think I like the other Wheelie colors better.

As for the Hasbro grey to the Takara brown, I agree with you. For me, this time around, I like the Hasbro versions a little better than the Takara versions. I know I'm probably in the minority on this one, but I think the color schemes are better matched in the Hasbros.

I do kinda like the heads though. Takara did a better job on those IMHO. The solution I read about painting them is a good one, but for Hardhead the entire sculpt is different.

Legends Hardhead just arrived. I'm very impressed with this guy. I don't know why, but I am. And the box is beautiful.


Do we know when the Takara Fortress is due?

Super Convoy needs his trailer shells to be black and the trailer stripes on said shells to be blue.

Although, thinking about it, maybe using the PMOP version of the mold would work better since it, for once, is supposed to be Convoy/Optimus himself, and he's also a legit Powermaster instead of a Godmaster. :idea:

Hardhead and Skullcruncher arrived today! First impressions:

They are smaller than I imagined :lol: I knew they were deluxe size but seeing them in-hand is different. This makes the details rather impressive.


I opened Skullcruncher first because I was looking forward to having a Decepticon with a beast-mode, finally. He's kind of difficult to pose in robot-mode and the joints are inconsistent.. some are tight (arms) and some kind of loosey (legs.) Anyone else have this issue?


The alligator's head-articulation is really cool, but I wish the back legs had knee-articulation. Maybe instead of the dino/bird accessory.


I like the handgun, unlike Hardhead's it's proportional and sleek. But not a fan of the tail partforming -- it looks goofy as a weapon and falls off as a tail.


Skullcruncher has some rubbery parts.. why? Don't those get sticky and gross real fast? Should I apply Future to them?


His transformation is pretty simplistic, but I'm very impressed with Hardhead's innovative transformation!

Correct, see the :BOT: on his shoulders?

That bash is based on a "Reissue Companion" for God Ginrai called "Nucleon Quest Super Convoy":

A black Convoy does not a Black Convoy make

The backstory is that during a fuel crisis, Optimus Prime set out to find the miracle fuel Nucleon, which is found in Black Holes. The black coloring is a special coating or armor, devised by Hi-Q, to protect him from the extreme gravity.

You know, I could totally see TakaraTomy releasing this as an exclusive, using the unaltered version of the Powermaster Optimus Prime mold and not the Super Ginrai retool.

Fellow Seibertronian chuckdawg1999 has sent our way a video review showing off the differences and similarities in the Titans Return and Legends Headmaster Hardhead (which includes the little tank found with Terri-bull, too) figures, from Hasbro and Takara Tomy respectively! Check out the clip embedded below, compare our own gallery of the Hasbro release here, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub.

Hardhead was one of the original Headmasters introduced during the Rebirth miniseries. I've always felt a closer connection to the US fiction than the Takara version, where the smaller robots were the characters who combined with transforming vehicles. Takara as usual has enhanced the experience with a cartoon accurate deco and face, while including a repainted Titan Master vehicle to round out the pack. The Legends set is the better value but may be harder to find at this point.

Hey both look very nice. I'm happy with hasbros but I've become so hooked on the legend comics I really want both, stuff is just getting good too pricey now though

I said this at teh weekend when I saw the hasbro one in person. It looks like he's wearing shorts.


I do much prefer the takara one. Not just for the head, though that was the draw. So glad managed to snag him for 20 quid.

Courtesy of fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath, we now have an in-hand prototype shot of TakaraTomy's LG35 Ginrai from TFYuki's Twitter - an extensive retool of Hasbro's Titans Return Powermaster Optimus Prime, itself an extensive retool of Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus. TFYuki also comments in particular on Ginrai's wrist articulation, a feature missing on his Hasbro counterpart. Check out the image below and feel free to compare with our gallery of Titans Return Powermaster Optimus Prime!

I'm sorry, but anyone who says Powermaster Optimus Prime is better than Super Ginrai are just wrong. :-D

Cool, thanks for letting me know that, despite having a rational and objectively based opinion about them, that I'm still wrong >:oP
