    Here are pics of my Hothead set. Am I just crazy or is not-Duros really missing his face in robot mode?

    I wanted to start this thread to make collectors aware of this problem. There may be some of you out there who have a defective one and you may not realize it.

    Well here's one person who has this issue and didn't even know it......does anyone else have this issue with their hothead set?

    Seriously please take a look at your set if you own it and post in this thread if you have the same defect.

    I want to see how prevalent this problem is.

    I seriously hope that this is an isolated case.

    That this doesn't get carried over to the IDW Hothead kit.

    I'll be d@mned if that happens right in front of me. :redface2:

    Do you have one? And what does yours look like? Does it have a face?

    Or did you just order the 2nd release?

    WTS...my Hothead set is not refundable/non returnable. Is there a radicon out there who can help me find a solution/modification to this problem?

    Also, for the ones who do have faces, make sure yours isn't loose to the point where it might fall off.

    Just ordered Hothead 5 minutes ago... I suppose that's something to look out for when it gets here.

    ^ I was this close to snagging one...Then I saw 2.0 coming. :p 

    Maybe you should try contacting the person/crew behind this project & just highlight the issue to him?

    Either him or the retailer whom you'd gotten your set from...

    Yes, seems to be a rare case.

    The products go through 3 levels of inspections, it may have come off during shipping.

    Cool. headrobots offered to replace my missing face as well.

    Honestly, even though I noticed something seemed off about my Hothead, it didn't really bother me because the whole set is quite awesome. But I am glad now that I know what was missing headrobots was quick to offer a fix for me. As much as I love their company for their great products, I am loving them even more after this.
