    The Classics toy is no good anymore, the WFC toy isn't accurate and the Legends toy is too small. Here you go.

    And thus, the Great Ignore List grows ever larger.

    It does not. It's the one downside to TakaraTomy's release of the toys, that the nicely painted Titan Master vehicles are released as accessories for the Deluxe toys so they do not have a color coordinated nicely painted Titan Master to go with them.

    But Ramhorn is one of the few that looks good without a Titan Master, so I don't think you'll miss the extra head.

    I actually prefer the Hasbro Octane to Takara due to still having the G1 toy but I cancelled my preorder and will be going Takara due to the Starscream gimmick. That is just too clever. Now, to figure out how to get this head to work with UW Ghost Starscream.....

    LG bumblebee is better, which have clear window. So Headmaster spike is new mold or redeco from Hasbro FortMaximus?

    Do you mean creepy, crappy, or crepe?

    This new Spike is a new mold, but based on the same Sunbow Cerebros head as Hasbros, to answer your other post.

    It's okay for Spike Headmaster. If Tomy will make a big change of crossover like marvel Crossover. It's human headmaster usually robot.

    I think I'll just put some ice-y blue over Spike's head, to make it look a little reflective.

    EDIT: Actually, Testors has a reflective "chrome" silver I've used before. That might actually work better. I'm a little uneasy about tampering with a Takara figure though..

    If you're ever actually intending on using him as a head on any of your figures, that might not be a great idea. Even if the paint is durable enough to withstand being plugged in and pulled out of the port repeatedly without scraping, the additional thickness added by the paint might make it difficult to even plug into the port in the first place.

    That's Starscream. Spike is all new, Starscream is Nightbeat with a new face.

    Man I thought the same exact thing ....then I went and traded out every core Hasbro Headmaster character and replaced them with the Legends version....and guess what?

    Each and every joint was rock solid.
    Each and every connection point gripped like a vice.
    Even things like heel spurs and hands had locking click points.
    Lastly, beautifully painted titan masters.

    I will forever spend the extra $ to import. It's a personal decision I've made and i don't see myself being swayed from it anytime soon .

    Of the half dozen or so I own, I'm fairly certain zero of them have clicky locking points on the hands. The painted Titan Masters and matching TM vehicles are worth the price of admission for me. But if we're gonna compare, let's at least be honest abour it.
