    I saw the 2 pack that has the G1 repaint of Mixmaster at TRU the other day. I thought about picking it up until I looked at Mixmasters head. it seriously looked like someone took a blowtorch to his face. anyone else seen this on the figure or was it just a major problem with the one i saw

    I don;t know... you MAY have seen a messed up one. The head that comes on him is goofy looking, there's no doubt there, but melted? IDK.

    I'd recommend passing if you just want Mixmaster. I only got the set for Hoist which is great but Mixmaster was a floppy mess and that head sculpt is awful. Granted the floppiness couls have just been back luck of the draw with QC but the head definitely wasn't.

    Yeah, the head they used on the Mixmaster repaint really is pretty asinine looking. The one I saw looked like he was the happiest and friendliest robot out there.

    Even if his head wasn't so stupid looking I'd still prefer the RoTF painted version. I like the big Decepticon logo on it.

    I feel the same way about nearly all the ROTF faces. I have this Mixmaster because I wanted Hoist. He's still in the twisties, in the box. :lol

    Yeah, that face is pretty goofy. I wish they had packaged him in alt mode, so I could enjoy that awesome g1 greenness MISB.
