    That shield is an extremely nice touch and the mold and even colour works quite well for Hardhead.
    The only real complaint I'd have is the head.

    I am sold on this guy. Lets hope they arrive soon while I still have money in my pocket to burn. Anyone recall the estimated timeframe when these badboys are hitting the shelves. Really want Hardhead and Powerglide, so I may as well get the trifecta.

    I wish that for these shameless repaints that Hasbro would at least add a new head. Given the lower bottom line and high ROI on reselling the same item it would at least be respectful to add a little bit extra.

    The shield IS a nice touch but how about a new gun? Didn't G1 Hardhead have a shoulder cannon(s)?

    They have issued some new heads for ROTF deluxe repaints let's do the same for other lines too please.

    As far as future Universe figure go I think it would be great if Hasbro at least dipped into their back inventory to bring some of the good moulds back like Armada Starscream, Energon Shockblast. I feel Universe feels somewhat unfinished without dipping into some of the pivotal characters that have been brought to life by IDW in recent years such as Thunderwing, Bludgeon (The upcoming ROTF Voyager looks to address this) and so on.

    I think for store exclusives being a much more limited production run than a mainline repaint, the lack a retool is entirely understandable.

    Expect to pay a extra $5 a figure for that that new head.

    And he does have shoulder cannons similar to the original. Its a long range weapon.

    I have nothing to complain about on this figure. Though bundleing in solid color energon weapons with exclusives would be a good incentive. lacking the expense of new tooling.

    Put me on the fence for this guy...I'm currently using Classics 2.0 Overload as Hardhead...and he does the job well imo...with this exclusive Hardhead the colors work really well on the mold...though I for one do not like the shield...

    I kind of like this repaint. However I still haven't gotten the Silverbolt repaint which I want so badly. While this year has brought a plethora of collecting options, for one who wants it all, it's very disheartening.

    like this one much more than onslaught. The color scheme does work really well and the sheild does have a nice touch. woulda liked a new head but..oh well. I might have to pick him up. the G1 headmaster was one of my favs as a kid..now if only i could find a replacement Duros I'd have 'em displayed.. In all his G1 glory.

    I thought there was a rumor of a repaint to the Energon Shockblast mold to be more Shockwavey for an Universe exclusive. I could be and may most likely be wrong and the picture that surface was just someones own touch ups.
