    Thank you so much for that review.

    Oh man. Such a simple, yet extremely versatile upgrade that also looks fantastic. They did a great job incorporating it into the existing figure. I so can't wait to get this.

    Glad to be able to bring it to you.

    The versatility and playability with the various options really make this thing impressive to me. Not only that, but it's simple and looks great. My only regret would be the light on the figure is red..it'd be awesome to get a blue light in there to match with the blue visor on the head unit itself. That's not a fault of the upgrade set and i'm sure it'd be easy to replace the bulb...i just don't know how to do that sorta thing.

    Been debating on buying this set, but after watching this, I think I'm definitely gonna order it later.

    Great review for a great upgrade set... just wish I had bought Hardhead that one time I saw him at Walmart. "Naw, I'll pick him up later" I said to myself... never to be seen again.

    Same as, we never got Hardhead over here, but I turned my nose up at Onslaught so many times, even when he went on sale at half price, then as soon as I wanted him, can't be found bloody anywhere :(

    Why do I always feel like Optibotimus is trying to sell me something?

    Technically a great review though, nice work

    Great Review! Since you mentioned the LED, I might have to make a Radio Shack run. I'm pretty sure that they don't have Blue LEDs, but they definately have clear, and since the eyes are clear blue, it should work fine.

    man, it looks like the hasbro toy was designed around those pieces, not the other way around! I'll be excited to have this finally released. it's what's holding up me shipping a HUGE pile of loot from bbts.

    No G1 love? :( 

    Not liking how it has to be disassembled to attach it.

    I want to know what the G1 neck adapter looks like on it. Can you keep the adapter on the headmaster without it looking dumb?
