    Would you like to see HasTak re-explore the realm of these guys?

    Edit:
    Some added discussion topics for the thread:
    How should it be implemented if it happens? and if you don't like the idea, what are your main gripes with it that should be addressed?

    As long as Head-On is not repeated 10x an episode, I think it would be ok.

    lol I meant more in the toy lines than the shows. I mean, they are re-exploring targetmasters, why not headmasters? I personally think that headmasters are more interesting than targetmasters.

    I always hated the fact if you lost the Headmaster...you toy was basically worthless.

    Very good point, but they aren't worthless per-say, they bodies can still interact with other heads. Example: say you like one in vehicle mode, you can use his head on another body that doesn't have a head

    To me, a Headmaster gimick is just foolish. I don't think the concept is cool in any way what so ever. Having a small robot become the head just means you have one robot and one accessory, and both are probably lacking.

    Target Masters make more sense to me and I can buy them from a in universe standpoint.

    yes please, i love the idea of headmasters in general.

    As long as there's a cockpit in vehicle mode I don't need the techspec stuff.

    Yes!

    I loved the year 1 Headmasters but found their 2nd year downgrade disappointing. As long as there was some articulation, it's be like a Human Alliance set where a transforming robot replaces the goofy looking human.

    Yes to Classics Headmasters!

    They would have been way better than Power Core Combiners :p

    I never really liked the concept of Headmasters (Animated did it in a pretty cool way though). So pass for me if they did remake them.

    Taking a look at G1 Fortress Maximus, all I can think of is
    "YO DAWG! We put a head on your head so you can think while you think!"

    As long as they follow the Japanese explanation, and not the US one.
    No Nebulans, please.

    I would love to see modernized Headmasters,but if they did do them I would totally have to need them come attached with a cord or something so the damn things would never get lost.As others have said the body is pretty much useless without the head,so that sums it up for me.

    I like that idea. Let's add to this discussion some more. How should it be implemented if it happens? and if you don't like the idea, what are your main gripes with it that should be addressed?

    They should have a default head that can fold away to give way for the Headmaster partner so even if you lose the head, the toy is still functional.
