Classics : Headmaster Hardhead. As a kid, I always had a special love for Headmasters. One that I particularly remember well was Hardhead. I wanted to do a more modern revamp of this character. This customs started as an Armada Megatron. I completely rebuilt and replaced the upper legs, allowing much more articulation (rotation above knee, then full hip and knee articulation) I replaced the hands with articulated hands, which also rotate at the wrist. I had to make more space for these hands in the front (shoulder) treads. I heavily modified the turret/top of his alternate mode. Adding guns and a cockpit (Duros does not fit in) This turret rotates. For the head (Duros) I combined a Nightstick from Universe Cyclonus with a Safeguard (Vector Prime) Added ball joint articulation to the hips. The Duros photo gallery can be seen here : http://www.flickr.com/photos/accardi1/sets/72157623299245193 Once built, I added some battle scars and painted him with some custom blends using House of Kolors lacquers, and Testor model master enamels. * Special thanks to fabexmax for the idea of using Armada Megatron for this custom (many moons ago) and Zildjian for the cast hands, they rock! Hardhead stands approximately 11 inches tall. Duros stands approximately 1.75 inches tall. Later this week, I will be adding some really cool "extras" to this custom, to really "complete" his role as a Headmaster. The full gallery of large photos can be seen here : Headmaster : Hardhead - a set on Flickr Bonus Item Number One : - Shoulder Cannon Removable shoulder cannon clips onto Hardhead's shoulder. It also fits on top of his turret OR on a tread in alternate mode. Bonus Item Number Two : - Chest Headmaster Tech Specs Clip-in stats for Hardhead's speed, strength and intellegence.
