    But back on topic: last week I've bought Inferno and I love it very much.
    Great transformation.:)

    So which is the more 'toon accurate helmet? These are the type of concerns that haunt me in my sleep! #firstworldnightmares :)

    Both helmets have been seen in the G1 Sunbow cartoons. However, the helmet seen in "Auto Berserk" is more memorable since Inferno was heavily featured in that episode. The other helmet was featured in "Blaster Blues" and later episodes more frequently . My personal preference is the one resembling the toy head, but that's me. There's no wrong answer, they're both legit.

    Apologies for bumping an old thread, but would anyone be interested in selling their toy-accurate helmet for Inferno?

    I was a bit worried how they would approach the heads on the Fuso design because it is a bit complicated with the box and different helmets. I think they really nailed it. I also have a hard time picking which Inferno helmet to use because despite assuming I would like the toy one more, both actually really look good in person.

    You really have to love how expressive the line has become. And it is still blooming.

    I might just have to pick up the reprolabels set for my Inferno and Grapple. The rear/bumper area is just too plain/blank looking. sheesh.

    It's the only thing stopping me from getting a Grapple. Need that toy-accurate helmet for him!

    You mean the stock Grapple helmet?

    Unfortunately it just doesn't do it for me, I don't remember Grapple from the series but I have fond memories of my brother's Grapple toy, so I'd love to have Inferno's toy head to complete the look.

    Willing to pay good money for it, folks!

    You might hit up some of the stores like BBTS and the like to see if they had any Infernos returned or un-sell-able because of serious issues and see if you can buy a helmet from one of those figures from them. I was able to get an extra Fort Max head once this way.

    Worth a shot if you aren't getting any bites here.

    I painted the stock one that was both orange and grey to all grey. Do you what you need to man, at the end of the day only what you think of your figure matters.

    Open box, slide out plastic shell, put hose in, close shell, close box, store box out of sight. Well, that's how I store Inferno's hose, anyhow :lolol
