    Just saw these pics of Hardbone. Yes, that looks to be the official name! I believe these are the first pics of the actual product in color.

    That is one bright figure. Not sure if I need it with the Headrobots version, but with all the FP ones coming out, I may to add this to the pile.

    Looks as tough they made some tweeks to the initial prototype and added details. Diggin it! Everyone preorder their Hardbone from Toyworld. That's just funny.

    2013: Year of the Headmasters

    Gimme. That's a strangely vibrant green they picked for him, but I actually like it a lot.

    And yeah. Grind Rod? Hardbone? Seriously guys?

    The colors look kinda off to me, but mold wise I think this looks great. Looks so much better than FP headmasters yet the price is about the same. I think this will be a buy from me.

    ...a Head Master named Hard Bone...

    Before anyone translates and informs ToyWorld that they *really* should change the name of this...

    ...let's just fill this thread with dick jokes and get it over with.

    Boneheaded comments aside... wonder how this figure compares when standing beside an HR Hardhead... namely if that kit could even be used here... which would be pretty interesting.

    Figure looks nice overall... but that name... needs... changing... ASAP.

    I never got the Headrobots version so I'm very interested, but is his green supposed to be so brightly neon? I wouldn't mind a more muted color.

    It's big, though, and only $72? The headmaster looks good

    Also, the aesthetic is suitably blocky, but not too much so, and looks to fit in well with Function-X.

    Although bear in mind, that's more or less the price in Asia. Their Throttlebots are listed at $45 on the item description page, but even from their own store, they were $60 shipped. So the final cost on this guy's probably going to be closer to $90.

    Good God, that green is blinding me. Still the mold is ace, so it's a buy.

    So, three things:

    1. As discussed elsewhere, the original was named Hardhead presumably as a nod towards the Headmaster gimmick; which means this guy's a Bonemaster? i'm just putting that one out there.

    2. The colours definitely need a little tweaking. The green's too bright at the moment. Not by much, but yeah. I'm sure that won't stand in the way of me (or anyone else) picking him up - and maybe it's just the light conditions / camera. Lookin' pretty good though!

    3. I know this image is just showing us the knife scabbard but with FP's Code starting that ridiculous ankle tilts meme round here, I couldn't help but laugh when I saw this:

    Look, everyone: he has ankle tilts!
