    pre-order hothead


    newest limited edition Cobra release with gun:
    highendtfs exclusive


    New Hothead info: All parts are totally backwards compatible with G1. Works if you have all the stock G1 weapons or none of them though the parts will be color-matched for the newer figure.

    ANY L.G.O Brick weapon can be used as a weapon. swords, shields, guns, etc....

    Thanks everyone for your support!

    I agree. But is there any chance we can get a few pictures against a dark background? I'm having trouble seeing the parts and head against the white.
    :crazy:

    Holy crap this is a total win-win. G1 fans and modern fans will be delighted! Can't wait to see more man. Looks like I need to get some megablox weapons too...

    Just one question that's been bugging me: is the head going to be articulated on the universe toy?

    Freaking cool.

    Building in G1 compatibility was very smart.... not only does is multiply their potential purchaser base, but it opens up a few more repaint options as well.

    While FP's products have managed to crazily inflate the prices of a few specific figures (Ultra Magnus, Rodimus, Bruticus, etc.), these HeadRobots products might actually raise the asking prices of an entire sub-line. All those cheap, headless G1 Headmasters on eBay may get a new lease on life.

    Oh, and I'm not familiar with "L.G.O. Brick Weapons," but assuming that is a reference to a popular Danish building toy company, that's a nice bonus. Lego is the other toyline besides TF's that I collect, and the idea of a TF Nebulan that can wield Lego weapons is just delicious nerd candy to me.

    Note that those aren't official Lego guns. Those are guns made by a company called Brick Arms that makes custom Lego weapons. BrickArms
    I've got a bunch of them, they are pretty neat and look great with Lego minifigs.

    I have the Cobra Commander-themed ones in hand right now and the plastic quality feels really good. I think what you're seeing is just glare.

    The quality is descent, I would not give it a really good but I would give it a really poor either. The concept itself is so great though that I ordered the Snake one from HighendTFs Toy Store: Welcome to HighendTFs Toy Store! as I am a G.I. Joe fan also.

    As for HardHead being G1 compatible, that is just amazing and cannot wait for this figure to arrive. I am going to have to find some headless headmasters on eBay now though for these guys.
