isn't there someone who is doing an add on to make one of the DOtM helicoptors (that wasn't in the movie--I forget his name) into the double bladed headmaster chopper? One for Mindwipe as well methinks?? am I wrong, or did that fall by the wayside?

Yep, Headrobots is doing them. But I don't think we'll see them before the end of 2013.

Stuff like Dr. Crank's lack of visor or Not-Shrapnel's mouth plate grate on me... not enough to keep me away, but enough to make me a little less enthused. ; ) So, I'll just have to hope maybe that's NOT the final product. Of course, I'll live if it is. I adore post-movie Transformers. : ]

Brainstorm didn't have a faceplate in Headmasters over in Japan. Likewise, Chromedome had eyes in said cartoon rather than the visor he had in the US Rebirth fiction.

And worst case, these are HEADMASTERS. Aka guys designed around the gimmick of putting different heads on their bodies. Somebody will make alternate heads if it's not FP themselves.

Only biting if they include alternate heads specifically to make them look more MTMTEish. Although I won't hesitate for a millisecond when they get around to Gatormus Prime

I'm quite Hardheaded out. I'd rather see new characters. Plus, well, Chromedome is sort of an Autobot leader of sorts. And Brainstorm is a cool guy
<shrug>

Those were the first two Headmasters I got as a kid - like them for the nostalgia. Forgot about the Toyworld Hardhead though.

If these are 90 bucks a pop like Assaulter, though, there's no way I can even think about it, ugh. Maybe FP can work some 'economies of scale' magic and get their price down a bit.
Molon labe.

More accurate heads and color schemes would make all the difference. I'm in if that's take care of.

Those are probably going to be the first two Stunticons. The four limbs were said to be Causality releases, with Motormaster being a Crossfire release.

And I'm glad that the design concepts for these have still been evolving since we last saw them. Wasn't quite feeling them before, just a little too blocky looking. But the updated artwork for Chromedome has far more dynamic proportions. Looks good.

Which means that if there's demand, someone can just go and do a third party head for those third party toys.
Very true, at least with Brainstorm. Chromedome's whole body would have to be more Roche-ified.

Wouldn't the reverse make more sense? Explorer and Munitioner were Crossfire and they are limb-bots.

Motormaster is theoretically a stand alone guy, he could be casuality.

Not that it matters, i just want them all.
