    The hothead release is slightly delayed to mid-august as we keep refining our molds for perfection. Please see the attached packaging teasers.

    Blood will be our 4th release and Gyro will come after.

    In major news we have added two new members to the headrobots team. We wanted to bring back traditional techniques so most of Blood is handsculpted and will be manufactured just like vintage toys. Blood has two faces you can choose from, 2 swords, and all parts help make a more accurate tank mode, we will show the real-life tank later.

    Gyro has a new "drone" head sculpt, a massive gatling gun, particle cannon, as well as two leg weapons. There are new wings for heli mode and the wings turn into blade weapons for robot mode.

    Oh man... So glad I have the Hardhead on pre-order. Those other 2 look amazing too. Might have to go grab one of those 2-packs on clearance. :D

    Very nice stuff. I'm especially interested in the Blood set. Well, interested in all of them actually. Keeping me eyes on how these progress.

    This. I have a problem with them spending so much time on a horrible mold. The things they are doing look fantastic for both molds. However, I think they are wasted on substandard figures (at least in Whirl's case). While I do like that Bludgeon, I still don't understand the upgrade. Why not focus on the more popular Voyager mold? Or at least have a head included in the set for that one.

    That said, I like all the accessories Bludgeon is getting. Really gives him more of a samurai feel.

    do you think there is much of a chance that the gyro head would fit on the upcoming deluxe tomahawk? if not, any plans on doing some sort of whirl conversion for that figure?

    All of the work looks great. I have Hothead preordered, and I'm really looking forward to getting it.
    Tomahawk to Whirl is a great idea!

    Looking foward to Hothead and Gyro. No need for Blood as I have ROTF Bludgeon and not the Masters of Metalikko Bludgeon. But it does look awesome as well.

    Question: will Duros be the same height as Nightstick? I kinda want my Nebulons to be the same size... Always bugged me that the 1988 Head and Targetmasters were tiny compared to the 1987 ones...
