    I just got him last night. I like him alot. The only problem I have is that a wish they make him into a headmaster. They could of taken the head off and made into Duros.

    I like the graphics on its shield, maybe repurpose Hardhead into SG.

    Hardhead is just a brutal reminder that we could've had Mega-Octane as the RID homage in Universe 2.0 instead of Bruticus :( 


    Naw, I'm just joshing, I heart you Bruticus. Now somebody tell Kyde to go insane and release this mold with G2 colors.

    If he was a Headmaster then I would've gotten him without hesitation. That he's just a straight repaint means that I'll never get him.

    He's my favourite out of the bunch for the G1 association. Though I'm tempted by that awesome looking Skyfall now too, curses!

    I just picked up both of these and I'm favoring Skyfall now. Hardhead is cool, but the paint on Skyfall is sweet.

    Hardhead is a store exclusive. Store exclusives are notorious for being straight repaints of existing toys (there'll be rare exceptions, i just can't think of any right now). A head remold was always out of the question. A Headmaster is even more so out of the question - developing a transformable head for a toy that has electronics inside the head...

    ^Examples of rare exceptions being molds that were produced at the tail end of a line that was canceled. Ala Alternators Rumble and Ravage, or Titanium Grimlock and Prowl. Both molds were ready to be mass produced, but the lines they belonged to were dropped by realtors, so they were marketed as store exclusives instead.

    I'd actually pick up the toy if it were a Headmaster, as I hate the mold as Onslaught. Still might pick it up, but it's not a high-priority item on my list.
