Headrobots | Facebook
Dear god...Headrobots wants all the money.
Damn you headrobots... I didn't wanna buy these... Now I have to BUY ALL THE HEADROBOTS!!!
Yo headrobots guys. I love the stuff you put out. But every gun you make the end of the barrel doesn't have much detail on it and doesn't seem to be like the front of a gun. Any way you guys could do some indentation sculpting to make it look like something comes out of the barrel?
Minor issue that probably only bothers me. But I think it's useful feedback.
I kind of do want to see Ronin next to Blood for side-by-side comparison. Hope that they're different enough that I don't have to put em on opposite sides of the shelf....what shelf? I mean storage unit MISB...*cry*
No interest in Ronin, but Skullgrins new sword is f'n badass. Depending on the head (I really like the Generations head sculpt) I may get that set for the sword alone
But where is Drone?
Really loving Ronin. I can't wait to get it. Gonna look great next to Bludgeon. I really like the addition of the gun to help differentiate the characters!
Same here, the sword and extra parts look nice and I like how Headrobots works them into the alt mode as they tend to do.
Wherever he is, I hope it's up for preorder soon!
I was pretty much set on selling off my Generations Skullgrin, but after seeing these pics I might have to keep him. I even bought his original 80's toy dual-cannons but finding a place to put them in tank mode has proven difficult. :-/
I like the generations head sculpt too, I feel if they were going to make him a new head he should also have his 80's Robot-Mode head included as that was also a part of the character.
if they dropped the weird nose they had the artwork sporting i might get Ronin
I'll grab both, didn't really like the original head that came with Banzi, and that Skullgrin upgrade is all kinds of win. I am just wondering if I need to track down a Tomahawk and a Mindwipe. Didn't really have much of a use for either, but may be interested in that Mindwipe upgrade, even though I still don't like the figure much.
Crap, I was gonna pass on these, but the new accessories are changing my mind.
This is fitting right after the article I wrote about them on my blog!
that's why it got posted, way too much news for us for one day but had to give you the ole' name-check
the nose isn't changing unless we get 1,000 US from someone to modify the steel tools. It is accurate to what we are paying tribute to. If it gets changed we would get ANOTHER batch of people posting about how it's not accurate any more so sorry, it's staying.
The same thing happened with Cobra, lots of complaints about the proto colors and then when we changed them MORE people came from nowhere to complain about the change and say they preferred the original. Since then we do what we want, can't make everyone happy and we don't care about tons of people buying our stuff.
About the gun, believe us, we know. With our attention to details it's not something we prefer but there is a reason it's like that and old-school guns are like that. Having a proper barrel would make the mold from a two part into a 3 part mold and the cost change is significant. This is pasted from somewhere else but explains why we have to manage stuff like that:
headrobots basically works like an internal pyramid/ponzi scheme. each previous project pays for the tooling for future projects. we'll see how much we can invest after 2 more releases and by then we should be able to tool savant and darksol at the same time. If we ever go negative on any project it's really not worth it to us to continue and try to dig ourselves out with our own money so we would just stop headrobots.
Neat, though I'm looking more forward to their Tomahawk/Whirl (and possibly Vortex) head kits.
nice! Ronin totally is a possible buy for me!
All the recent stuff looks awesome, don't let the cowardly, puerile basement dweller fan boys let you think otherwise. I plan on buying every figure you've made recently.
