Seibertron Cyberpath has dropped in to let us know what Yuki has to say to us today. And today, he brings in Hardhead and Skull, and decides to show them off with their little drone buddies.

Hardhead's drone is the little tank figure that will be coming with Terribull AKA Horribull and Skytread AKA Flywheels coated in a green that matched up with his tank mode nicely, making for a double whammy of awesome green tank power.

Skull meanwhile brings in his little buddy whom transforms into a bird and a little T-Rex. Hasbro is using the molds for their Crashbash AKA Squeezeplay and Clobber AKA Grimlock. Skull's little buddy uses the pinkish color that Skull has as well as some purple not found on Skull.

Check out the images below and let us know what you think in the comments section below. These guys are due out very soon, so get ready to finally experience these guys in-hand!

So, if I'm to understand this correctly, the smaller vehicles or "partner drones" (not "partnered loans" :lol: ) have official names? Hardhead's is called "Tankette" and Skull's is "Battler"? Interesting :-?

Apparently, Bing Translate sucks as bad as Google Translate...

Why would Bing be better than Google at anything? I am surprised it isnt worse.

Because Microsoft! (Ag drinks the Microsoft Kool-Aid™)

These look really cool and are nicely color coordinated. If I remember correctly, and please someone correct me if I am not remembering right, Hasbro's are not so nicely color coded to these specific figures. :-?

Well, I mean, the Titan Master vehicles aren't really supposed to be colour co-ordinated with the Headmasters...

バトラ batora... Battler? Batra? Certainly not Butler, not without a suit. Ah, Japanese Engrish...

It's the new workplace ethics. While a suit is still preferred, you can now show up to work dressed as a tank or a plane.

As a Dragon or Dino you mean :lol:

:EDIT: Ok, settled on "Batra" for now, as a combination of "battle" (バトル batoru) and "dragon" (ドラゴン doragon).

Not really. Not only does Sentinel Prime have no real basis in Japanese G1 lore, they're going to release his retool Astrotrain first. TakaraTomy usually follows Hasbro's release order, so this means either Sentinel has been skipped, or is planned for a later release as an exclusive.

Thanks to an alert by Seibertronian Cyberpath and our favorite source of Transformers Takara product TFYuki, we bring to you a new image of the upcoming Legends Hardhead, who is clearly ready to roll out to your collectors shelf! But, one big piece of information is now revealed: Takara is sticking with the Headmaster title instead of the "Titan Master" title of the Hasbro line. The title Headmaster can be seen on Hardhead's box. Check out the new image, and prepare, for Hardhead is gonna be busting up onto the scene here very shortly!

Not particularly surprising; Takara loved adhering to the past and I'm not actually sure why Hasbro renamed them Titan Masters anywho.
In any case I'm adoring that retro packaging, especially with how the Headmaster is shown off in it's own little corner :D

They already stated that all masters themed figures starting now will be called Titan masters. That includes headmasters, target masters and possibly even power masters IF they do that. And like I said somewhere else, who cares. You'll call it whatever you want when you have it.

Only Hasbro stated that, not Takara.

Hasbro usually is the only one who actually does business promotions and will tell us stuff like that. Let's not kid ourselves, Takara has terrible advertisement for transformers. Their toy announcements are magazines and tweets. Once in a while we will find out something at a toyfair in Asia but let's be honest most stuff is found by tweets and magazine scans.

This toy is out in like a couple weeks and we're just now seeing the packaging and finding out theyre using the name "headmaster" and whos surprised? It's takara

No, they revealed the packaging a month and a half ago at tokyo toy show http://www.seibertron.com/transformers/ ... age/35585/

They reveal their figures at shows, just like Hasbro does.

Not most of the time though. Yes sometimes well get a "reveal" but it's rare. Cheetor, inferno and weirdwolf were the only reveals there. Most of the time it's the magazines and tweets from tfyuki. That's how we found out about all their adventure line, all the combiners, almost all their headmasters.

Then again it's getting ridiculous now over here with the leaked blueprints and color schematics that are getting leake now. I still have a laugh thinking about all the people who claimed fortress Maximus was a fake. Yup, he's looking pretty good on my coffee table right now. :lol:
