    Seeing how great the igear Kup heads turned out would you guys be interested in a G1 style head for Generations Blurr? Maybe the could do a Red Alert head as well?

    Blurr's headsculpt now is about 300x awesome as his G1 counterpart. So no not Blurr.

    I think Generations Blurr's head fits the mold.

    Even if i'm not sure how the mold fits Blurr overall.

    Agreed

    Why? All three of those heads are perfect.

    I could go for a new head for Classics Dragstrip.

    The united version of Blurr shows much better why the mold suits Blurr, the Hasbro deco doesn't match the spotlight deco at all while the United one does, and I think it really makes a difference.



    A better, perhaps slightly bigger, Mirage head would be nice. His head be tiny, and really doesn't look a lot like the character imo

    :confused:  These guys have some of the best heads of any classics figures! Hound's and Sunstreaker's are almost perfect IMO.

    Maybe Hot Rod could do with a new head mold, but apart from that, there's not really much room for improvement amongst the classics/Generations figures' heads.

    Maybe Sideswipe but the other guys have perfect heads.

    Maybe they can redo Megatron's head though..

    i agree, just hounds is a little cartoony compared to the old man bot he was in the cartoon. Sideswipe was the main one i think could do with a better head sculp. I love sunstreakers head, just thought one where the ear things didnt stick out so far might be nice.

    The isnt much room for improvement, i was just nit picking, even if these got made i probably wouldnt buy them.
    Only improvement i'd like is ball jointed heads for those that dont have them already

    They could always do an IDW Perceptor head with the sight on it, have it bundled with a sniper rifle?

    Or Ironhide/Rachet.

    Generations Blurr already has a great head design that's easily superior to the original "box-head", and I'm honestly surprised the head can still fit in that mold's alt. mode since Drift's head is smaller.

    And Renderform has a Red Alert head upgrade (with extra gun) in the works, if not already released, in both toy-black and cartoon red.

    I honestly think Hasbro has nailed the headsculpts of all the characters who got classics style molds. Figures like Sunstreaker (who I still love his spring loaded "ears" being part of the transformation) and Hound don't need new heads because the only differences I could see are little details I couldn't care less about; such as the Igear head for Kup having the Cy-Gar. It's a neat touch, but frankly I'm okay with the original head. Same can be said about how I look at ROTF Bludgeon; I personally love the headsculpt as is, but there are more "skull-like" replacement heads out there for those who want that.

    Now, what IS needed are heads for figures who are simply repaints of other characters. Hasbro's finally starting to latch onto this idea with how they plan a head retool into most of their new figures. I for one would support a new head for Classics Dragstrip, since a blockier head would really set him apart from Mirage and Fracture and probably help him fit in better with G2 Classics Breakdown.

    I think a lot of people are forgetting a new head for Hot Rod would likely hinder transformation.

    I like the IDW Blurr head but I think it would just be nice to have the option to switch it out.

    I would like a new Blurr head. Yeah, Hasbro's sculpt is great on that one, I won't say the opposite, but the head itself is too big leading the figure to have bad proportions IMO so, a scaled down version would be very cool.

    Also, a good Cliffjumper head would be golden: FP one is too expensive and the new one (sorry, I forgot the name of both the kit and the maker) doesn't look good to me.
