    Hm. So it's only Fortress with the addition of a neck swivel to accommodate the Maximus head turning on a potential body.

    Well, they will be uniform at least. Now gimme!

    Wow! Apeface and Snapdragon are both awesome. Triple-Changer Headmaster figs with multiple accessories that are legion/scout sized? That settles it. Looks like I'll be taking the 3rd Party Plunge!! I don't like that they have been split up though - why don't they release the other 2 figures as singles and The Horrorcons as a set? Or for that matter, just release them all individually? Hate to have to choose between them, but I've always been more partial to Apeface and I think that figure has a slight edge here. I like the fact that he has 2 distinct weapons (gun, combat knives) that can combine into a "Super Gun". Also, the Highbrow figure is more appealing to me than Cerebros so that set is better for me. But man, I sure would like to have them both! I'll see if I can make it work to get both sets.

    Any idea as to when these will become available? Are the sets individually boxed or do 2 figs come in one box? Do they include instructions or is that what the YouTube videos are for? Assume I can order from BBTS/usual sources? Will Reprolabels be doing a sticker set for these guys? Sorry for all the questions, but as I mentioned these will be the first TP figures that I purchase for my collection.

    I really enjoy the Palm series.  The first two were the weakest, and they were still hits overall.

    Jumping on late to the party with these. Just too sucked in by Headmasters nostalgia and a possible shift to legends scaled only collecting.

    I'm afraid I'll have to pay a bit more for Tom and Jerry now, but the others are still pretty readily available.

    I'm looking forward to the latest four more than any of the others and I'm curious to see Fortress siting atop TR Fortress Maximus as the head isn't drastically smaller than the stock Hasbro. Might be a little pin headed but not outside the realm of stylistic anime proportions.

    I'm really looking forward to these as well! And I was hoping Fortress might work with TR Fortress Maximus as well, but unfortunately I think the size difference will end up being too drastic.

    They will be in two-packs and do have instructions. I know they are up on TFSource.com. The other headmasters were in two-packs as well. They are simple, but great figures.

    I thought UT would rise the prices with these sets since Apeface and Snapdragon are triple changers; glad they are sticking to their standard price-point. March is going to be an expensive month for me if these guys and the Magic Square figures all ship.

    Got my preorder in at BBTS for Fortress and Snapdragon but I'll have to think about the other two.
    Aepface is alright, but not sure if I really need him. Highbrow is highbrow.

    I liked Weirdwolf a lot. Looking at pics of the old G1 toy it is a different transformation, but the UT one has better articulation.

    I hate the transformation for Chromedome's legs though, and they should have molded the guns in red instead of painting them.

    Put my pre-order in for Apeface and Highbrow. Looking forward to Apeface, but I have basically zero use for Highbrow. Want to get Snapdragon, but same thing with Cerebros - I don't want him and then I'm in for over $100USD for 2 legends figs (although granted, triple changer headmaster legends figs with weapons/accessories). Hopefully they eventually release the figure individually...? Also, looks like these are going to hit online retailers...March-ish....

    Snapdragon looks ace - the strongest of the 4 to my eyes (though would have been nice for a better solution to his shoulder cones, articulation wise). The joints on these guys seem a little on the loose side maybe? Or perhaps it's just because I'm used to IF and DX9!

    Just ordered lord scorpion in anticipation for getting these 4, though I'd be very happy if they reveal their own fort max and scorp.

    You have to buy them both, you grade the entire group. Someone should have picked a better group partner. Now back to class with yee.

    I think the toyline was quite good so far, not the greatset, but they truly upgarded their game with Apeface and Snapdragon! However, Cerebros kinda suck due to his hollow legs which reminds me of their older releases. I really hope they would make *Overlord (I didn't get the TR version in the end, due to many downsides which made him mediocre like most Hasbro' toys) later on, he and the horrorcons are the best transformers play-value wise! I would also love to see how they would make Fort Max which hopefully would have great city/playset mode *caugh*unlike TR*caugh* for both Titanmasters and Unique Toys teeny-tiny headmasters:D !


    *It would be intersting to see them jump to enginemasters afterwards, it would make sense.

    Does anyone think this Cerebros could work on Toyworld Infinitor?

    Nah. Would definitely be too big. The Headmaster unit on that figure is around a G1 Headmaster size.
