    It almost looks like a mini HISS Tank. I'm not too familiar with this character.

    I may even order 2 of these bad boys. Considering I don't own any headmasters toys, that's telling of the coolness of this item.

    I just acquired a hardhead classics figure, and am stoked about the upgrade kit.

    Just another 3rd party vendor getting my money. :) 

    Great work Headrobots!

    I don't know what you have to do to get news credits. I should have 2 from a LONG TIME AGO, and I have 0. So, good luck with that.

    Yes. Yes it was - and headrobots.com kicks ass for making it. Though if memory serves Takara only made concept art - not design schematics.

    Their designs are in the Complete Ark book

    plus there's like 10 of them or something, and since they've already revealed Iguana is coming up too, and that's also one of the designs, I think we might be getting a whole set within a couple of years :D

    Awesome - I did not know that. One thing I LOVE about these guys is that at $18 a pop, I think most anyone who wants some of these will be able to get them. Hell for me, all I have to do is not drive my truck for two days. I love it to death, but I sink in $10 a day on gas. So if I can leave it parked over the weekend I'll have me a headrobot cobra!

    Ah here it is, I'm home now, so here's a run down on the designs in the book:

    Robot 1
    Cougar
    Crocodile
    Black Banded Sea Krait
    Chameleon
    Buffalo
    Bear
    Cobra - Been made
    Jackson's Chameleon
    Iguana - Been designed
    Wolf
    Robot 2
    Rhinoceros
    Alligator
    Bull
    Dugong
    Gliding Lizard

    More than I originally thought lol

    These are all shown on pages 286-288 in the complete ark, I have no idea what page it is in the smaller parts, but it comes right at the end of the Headmaster's series section

    I kinda hope that they'll redesign the Japanese exclusive Headmasters and release them too :D

    On Hardhead or by itself.

    I don't think we will be making all of those. There are a few already designed. But as we are focusing on other future projects I doubt we will explore more beyond iguana. I know I want to make one humanoid headrobot but we are a small groupoif fans and money from sales feeds the next project. Simple economics. Demand will fuel supply in our case. Since demand is somewhat meek at the moment we shall see what happens.

    when our team started collecting the only things available were g1 and g2, the landscape is certainly different now but our releases still show where our passions are :) 

    it was fun doing G1-style designs but yes, after Iguana the rest are up in the air. we would like to do other upgrades that will show our skills and capabilities and allow us to grow as designers......

    yes, we priced them really low for the production numbers, this project isn't even making half of what we could be making doing other professional freelance work but we wanted it to be cheaper than loose Heads and it was a fun risk and learning experience.

    we keep repeating this but do NOT buy Cobra if you don't like it, we are trying really hard to get duro-5/hothead into production ASAP.
