A photo, first posted in the "Transformers Collectors Group" page, of a nicely stocked Walmart made the rounds on Facebook. While the shelves weren't overflowing, there was lots of new stock like the latest Cyberverse deluxe toys, the Netflix figures, SS86 Grimlock and the second wave of Headmasters. These are redecos of headmasters we got in Titans Return using the Japan exclusive heads the Takara versions had. And they come in G1 packaging. Wave 2 consists of Weirdwolf, Highbrow and Skullcruncher. There is no word yet if Weirdwolf has been fixed or not (both the Hasbro and Takara version had major breakage issues).

This sighting comes from California but these are apparently making their way across the US.

Well, if he hasn't... shaving off the outermost millimeter or so on either side of the hinge portion of the glazing should do the trick.

Hoping to find the two Decepticon Headmasters. Highbrow I can take or leave, the American headsculpt isn’t too different from the Japanese one.

Wave 2!? Wave one hasn't even hit my area. The distribution of these figures are a cruel joke.

Agreed. I live in the same state as this sighting (although Northern CA and Southern CA might as well be different countries) ;) .

I saw a single Chromedome ONCE, and that's it.

I just need Mindwipe from Wave 1... hoping they fixed the tolerances on his rubbery bits. All 3 of Wave 2 are on my list, Highbrow top priority (just to finish the Autobot lineup). >:oP

Highbrow and Hardhead for me to finish the Autobots, outside of Fort Max who I ain't buying at eBay prices. I have the TR Mindwipe but one of the batwing tips broke off.

My Walmart had one each, Chromedome, Hardhead, Mindwipe, Brainstorm, and Weirdwolf. I got my Hardhead.

Wait, Fort Max is actually expensive now? I remember him being worth less than retail once.

Yeah, he is in the $300 range from what I have seen.

I already had Skullcruncher, but I needed all the others. Just waiting for Weirdwolf and Highbrow.

Maybe they'll do a re-issue of Fortress Maximus. Maybe I'll buy it if they do.

Holy crap, it's my lucky weekend. I've now seen all of wave 1 and 2, and I got my Hardhead and Highbrow ;)^

Well, these two Autobot Headmasters keep the skies and ground clear of Decepticons.

I own TR Quake so I knew what to expect with Hardhead and my only complaint is the mount for the tank cannon is pretty loose compared to Quake. And Highbrow still has the neck issue, the mount for the Headmaster/Titanmaster sits high and is a little loose so the head is a little floppy.

Even with these two complaints, I am very happy with my purchase and I now have all four warriors from the sky.

Damn... I'm glad I got mine back in 2018 for $109 then.

I wonder if perhaps Scorponok has driven Fort Max's price up.

A few years ago, I was having dreams of shelves full of G1-style boxes containing superior versions of familiar Transformers. It was very pleasant. These Headmasters look like those dream models. ;)^

Man, I saw Hardhead and Mindwipe... If I see Skullcruncher I think I'm going to have to get him.
He'll be my one and only Headmaster figure in my collection.
