    Alright! Those look ready enough for pre-orders; it'll be nice to collect all four original Autobot Headmasters.
    Com'on UT; get these guys out and start work on your next batch of legends figures; I could use a Go-Shooter and Minerva.

    That Snapdragon is adorable. These need to go up on order now. UT hit all of these guys out of the park, along with the prior headmasters.

    Apeface isn't doing it for me, but Snapdragon is perfect.

    I kinda feel like instead of turning the jet mode tail-fins into two dinky swords, they should've just done a single shield piece with angled fins like the original.. but not a deal breaker for me.

    Okay, I'm not insane. Cerebros has a neck joint, right?

    Damn, looks like you do have to buy them split between two sets. I don't super mind having a Cerebros to stand next to Fort Max, but I for sure don't want Highbrow. I'll preorder Snapdragon/Cerebros but I'll be waiting for HZJ401 to sell Apeface singles.

    Love love love Snapdragon though, he's so cute! Without wings he reminds me of Shin Godzilla's crawling form.

    Apeface is the best one. Snapdragons only trouble is he has no outward arm movement or waist swivel(edit: he does have waist it is just lower down)...
    Apeface has pretty maxed articulation in bot and ape mode, jet mode looks glorious with that cockpit under clear plastic.

    You can get some outward arm movement by rotating the shoulder cones. Maybe not ideal, but it's there. See below:

    Yeah not ideal. Not that it really matters, i do accept minor compromises at this scale.

    I see cerebros, or whatever you want to call him, has the rotating head is so fort max head can rotate, pretty neat. Maybe they will do a body for him. Do hope they keep plushing out this line.

    I have these guys standing on there own but i think i will end up putting the titanmasters next to them.

    It's not the sculpt so much as the colors. There's no black on this figure at all, and G1 Apeface had plenty of black parts.

    Snapdragon and Apeface look cool, but I hate that they're packed in with two other figures I absolutely don't want... I'm sure I could sell Cerebros to someone, but Highbrow might be a harder sale to make happen...

    Yeah. I have negative desire for Cerebros or Highbrow.

    How much are these going to be?

    Ehhh, why bother making a Cerebros separately that actually looks far worse than the TR version? I mean, look at that sad Fort Max face. It\'s like he is about to cry. :D

    I guess you haven't watched Headmasters; dealing with Daniel and Wheelie every day just broke some important piece of poor Cerebros spark. The sad face seems appropriate.:D

    Cerebros is my favorite of these so far but I like and want all of them. Well, not especially Highbrow, but I kind of HAVE to get him.
    Sorry Highbrow, you look fine and all, you're just the Peggy Schuyler of the Headmasters.

    I like how Apeface and Snapdragon are significantly smaller than the KFC EAVI figures and are still better.
