    Hello,

    Sorry if this has been posted before, but the date is listed as Friday the 22nd, so hopefully this isn't bringing up old news.

    I saw this via Twitter, an interview with Headrobots (more or less), which speaks to various ongoing projects with some pics I hadn't seen before.

    Can anyone guess what that last picture of the "secret internal project" could be?

    Secret internal project? Looks like flipping Cerebros!
    I hope it's for the cybertron Metroplex mold. I bought that thing in anticipation for something like this!

    Always good to hear from them and interesting to hear about their background. I'm personally more interested in Savant than Darksol, so was hopeful we'd see more on that front. Really can't wait for those two though.

    Awesome interview. the products I actually buy from HR are hit-or-miss because I don't collect G1/movie and they've done some overlapping sets for the same bot (stronghold/butcher), but I respect the effort put into each of these.

    I like the things like Darksol, because it's showing a lot more of a creative path for the company... it's like watching their skills grow more and more with each release.

    Love the work these guys do. I just wish their releases weren't so far apart. I can't wait to have ronin, tauros, and darksol in-hand.

    HR are definitely becoming one of my favourite 3P companies. A friend gave me the Blood set for xmas and I loved it. Can't wait for all of their new stuff to be out.

    I'm surprised that Blood wasn't profitable for them. The KO did that much damage?

    Well thanks a lot for teasing us with a Classics Trailbreaker we can never have.

    Keep your internal projects to yourself.

    It MIGHT get released depending on fan input and if finances are ok.

    And I'd rather not a 3rd party company keep them to themselves. It shows that they're actively out there trying new things, and not just riding the wave for money.

    Nice interview, though it does make me sad to see a hard conformation that Big road was just a one off.

    Considering they have been very open about products not making a huge profit for them, yet they continue to produce the same kind of product, it's unlikely finances will ever be OK enough for them to do it.

    DX Blood is next, right? Where does Ronin fit into the release schedule?
