    I got mine over the weekend, but didn't get to put it on Hardhead until today at work. I definitely like it. One word of warning though, AFAIK "Duro-5" doesn't split in the middle like it did for optibotimus in his video. Myself and a fellow tfwer both tried separately to no avail.

    What do you mean by split in the middle?

    I heard he got an early pre-production version. They tightened them up after...that might be why.

    Sorry, if you watch the review optibotimus did he was able to detach the front of Duros from his back (Hardhead's face) as part of the transformation. The video is here:

    YouTube - Video review of the Headrobots.com Hothead (Hardhead) custom figure!

    It's at ~2:30 into the video. I even tried some gently prying with an X-acto without success.

    That's what we're speculating, but let me know if I'm wrong and someone manages to get it apart. Just wanted to warn folks because we were both under the impression that it should split because of the video review. You can get a good grip on the back of the figure, but on the front you're either going to be pinching the legs, arms, or head while trying to pull the two halves apart. If it is indeed glued I could very easily see folks snapping one of those parts off. The plastic doesn't feel quite as sturdy as a Hasbro or FP release, though it might just be that he's so small.

    Mine shipped from BBTS, with a bunch of other stuff, on Friday. I'm expecting it either tomorrow or Wednesday; Thursday at the latest.

    Just need to find my tiny screwdriver to get Hardhead's original head off.

    I got mine today. It is freaking sweet.
    I noticed if you just sort of wiggle the head into place it works just fine.
    I really couldn't be happier with it.

    Mine will be in my pile of loot until MP Rodimus is released. Or I may wait for whichever United I decide to scoop up. I'll be late but I'll definitely give my thoughts then.

    And suddenly TFU Hardheads stop appearing in the Junkion/Sales thread altogether.

    Can anyone tell me why? :lol
