    When did Hasbro change the head on the Titans Return Chromedome? I saw 2 at my local Walmart with the Japanese head. I picked one of them up.

    That's cool, but not something I care that much about.

    It looks like a returned figure, and the previous owner accidently swapped the head with the Takara one.

    Clearly you are wrong. In the first post it says there were two and he bought one. It is extremely unlikely that someone would repackage chromedome TWICE with a Takara head and return it. I don't know what is going on, I just wish people would read things before commenting.

    I haven't seen any transformers at all at my wall-mart in quite a while. I hope they get some of these if they are out there.

    It's true that it's unlikely, but it isn't impossible that there would be two returned figures. Maybe since some people like the IDW head and Takara body combination, they packed up and returned the TR version with the Legends head. The package does look as though someone repacked it. Takara did end up releasing the Hasbro heads in Japan, and maybe this is why.

    Either way, I hope that it's a running change because this looks much better.

    This isn't a repackage. This Walmart had nothing until today as far as Titan Returns figures. There were 2 each of Scourge, Blurr, Hardhead, and Chromedome with the Japanese head.

    I'm hoping someone can compare the stamped numbers with their Chromedome.

    What's the point of this? People get the Hasbro version because of the IDW head.

    Is the headmaster painted? That would tell us a lot.

    I'm wondering if they did this with Skullsmasher. That would make getting him even more enticing.

    Here's hoping that case revisions will have the Takara heads.

    I did see that exact case assortment at a Walmart the other day, but I didn't check it out further because I owned all the figures.
    Hmm.

    I may have the Hasbro version cause its cheaper but maybe I want a head closer to my preferred Chromedome at said cheaper price.

    I checked the lone Chromedome while on my lunch break at the Walmart I work at and it has the IDW head. I'm thinking it could just be someone swapping out the heads but I pray this is a running change.

    Ill take a look at the ones at my local Wally next time Im there. It would be kinda cool to see running changes with the Japanese heads. I prefer Takara's animation accurate face for Hardhead and would be thrilled to see Hasbro make this particular change.
