    Am I the only one pumped for this guy??

    Headrobots just confirmed that Butcher will be color matched for either the takara or hasbro version of the mold and that the molds are already done

    I look forward to having on my shelf:

    BBTS Hothead with Hardhead Body.

    Stronghold with Hasbro Onslaught

    Butcher with Takara Onslaught

    With all the options for the guns, the shield, and the cowcatchers i'm very excited

    I like it. I may have to finally invest in a Takara version of Onslaught. Saw it at a friends place and couldn't beleive how nice the colors looked. Between Butcher, Stornghold (hopefully have it in hand in a week or so), BBTS Hardhead, regular Hardhead, and Botcon G2, this mold has seen a lot of love. I think I will need the Takara version just to lead the pack.

    I have Stronghold and am thinking about getting a Takara Onslaught to go with my DotM Vortex. I normally don't get "same character new heads" but I'm SO impressed with Stronghold that I'm considering it.

    Hard to believe that a mold that started out with a poor sound chip (BA-WHOOP!) has turned into 5 kinds of awesome. I love my Hardhead add on and I agree that the kits are total win.

    Wow, awesome! Looks spot on! Pass for me, unfortunately;;.. I gd love HR so much, hate not supporting/passin a piece up.. Just cant justify a headmaster onslaught lol.. Much less a voyager onslaught that combines with nothing ><

    I'll bite, I'm sure, I have all but one Cobra Variant (Black Zarak...DAMN YOU!!!), and all the HotHead variants so far (Double dips on v1. Cobra and HotHead at that), I LOVE me some Headmasters.

    That said.

    The knives are a fun new addition, but otherwise, this guy's not doing much for me. Hopefully he gets some kind of fiction (like Most of the Cobra variants and almost none of the HotHeads), since I don't feel like having yet ANOTHER blank-slate dude to deal with :lol 

    OH..wait..what..? He's supposed to BE Onslaught? That's intriguing. Maybe he can hang out with the Junkion Blacksmith "I'm my own head" crew...

    I'd be all over it, but my Comic Head will probably be sitting in my POL for another month or so before I ship everything.

    Ooo, does that include the LE Toxin from TFCON? I've got NightRider so I'm leaning against trying to track down a Toxin.

    Hmm, it looks like the new head can light up. Not sure what the shoulder cannon's doing there, other than "we made the mold so let's use it."
