    Dear Hasbro,

    I just received my HFTD Highbrow yesterday and simply cannot put the thing down. It is a glee to transform back and forth and the WWII style plane is just perfectly executed.

    Please do more figures like these with classics alt modes. I would be very grateful.

    Yours,

    RW

    It seems like he is a polarizing figure. I've only read very good things about him or very bad things.

    I think the Ransack idea was great but not as well executed as Highbrow. But as it is a scout class figure, I think there was only so much they could do with it. Same with Hubcap and the classic hot rod look. Perhaps if they were bigger in size they would've had more potential?

    I'm getting him because I love Headmasters. If he's as good as you say then that'll just be a bonus.

    i'm way stoked to get him... he looks badass... and I love that plane design... had a hot wheel style jet back in the day that my dad gave me, and Highbrow looks almost identical... I just hope i can find him soon...

    Hell fricken no! :lol 
    The arms take some getting used to but other than that, it's pretty awesome. The head is a little SWTFish as well but not that bad.

    I really do hope that Hasbro continues to look at classic vehicles as alt mode options though. There's just so much stuff they can tap into.

    I've always wondered why it took this long for them to start looking into classic era stuff.

    I like WWII shooting games. Maybe Hasbro can find some other WWII based design and give Highbrow a rival or something.

    I'd love for them to create a new Rail Racer with steam locomotive alt-modes.

    No the new figure is not a head master. The Highbrow name was first used on a headmaster figure though.
