    Not really. People need to learn to read properly.

    It was mentioned early on that the Megatron is NOT apart of the set.

    The photography is great but if you dont read you may be mislead. There are disclaimers for a reason.

    The light piping is not better in the comic head. The photographer has a blue LED in his Hardhead neck. So lighting shows up better.


    But great review. Makes me want it more.

    I wonder why they chose that beige color over gray? I don' mind the look of this new head, but that predominantly beige head doesn't seem as show accurate. Wasn't it more gray?

    It's based more on the IDW Hardhead, hence the beige face.

    Ah, ok. That does make more sense. I have seen some IDW shots with the beige face. Of course I have also seen some where it looks gray too :S. Personally, I hope we get a gray one as well (but i won't hold my breath). This one looks spectacular though. I like the boxy look to it.

    At the 2:00 mark he says "....enter in the third release of Hardhead...." I assume he just misspoke?

    I misspoke/misread. Sorry about that. The packaging says "HEADROBOTS 3rd release".
