    Legends Chromedome, Highbrow, and Hardhead with Titans Return Brainstorm. Updated Headmasters, and they feel so good.

    Here's my little homage to one of my most memorable Highbrow moments from the old Marvel UK comics. Yes, he truly did defeat Scorponok and go wandering around with his head as a trophy.

    Does the Takara Highbrow head stay in better than the Hasbro one? My Hasbro one is practically a bobblehead.

    The little blue vehicle would look nice with Fort Max.

    Geez, I don't like Takara's head sculpts on any of these. The Kup one is good, but the rest just look "off" to me somehow. Paint apps are nice though.

    Man, that face is atrocious. I feel like most of the other faces just come down to preference, but this one just looks bad.

    I'm guessing no, I bought minds second hand and thought the guy sold me a broke one until I just read both of you asking.

    While I'd not call it rock solid, mine does a good job of not being loose. The only bobbleheaded TM I've had is Scorponok.

    The colors are great, the shape of the head is accurate, but what were they thinking with that face?  why is he so grumpy? Highbrow was a pretty chill dude in the show. shame, because I think this is the 2nd nicest lookong Autbot Headmaster they remade, the best being Hardhead imo, and the worst being Chromedome.
    I kind of want the hasbro one because the head on that is much better, but I don\'t like the colors and the paint on it nearly as much. and I don\'t care enough to buy both just to switch the heads. its just unfortunate.

    I've got both and have the Hasbro head on the Takara body,best of both worlds really. Shame his rotors clash, but a solid update of the original.

    Love the shot of him carrying Zarak by the way :)
