I don't see how the head could work for both Hothead and Hardhead unless it comes unpainted and you paint it yourself...?
What? The Headrobot is "Hothead". He's designed to work for Hardhead and... Hardhead. (The Universe toy and the G1 toy.) Perhaps you're thinking of Hosehead?

Anywho, I'm sure it'll be molded in color, and probably have some paint details. The Cobra Headrobots all have a bit of paint.

Newest Additions: Lots of stuff I'm too lazy to list right now.

When did Universe Hardhead get crazy expensive? I had to resort to Amazon which is still nearly 40 a pop. Ebay is over the top. Is it solely due to this set? I figured since he wasn't too desired upon release and isn't a Rodimus or Bruticus that he'd be more reasonable.

I am thinking of Hosehead.

I went ahead and ordered this from BBTS. I hope it looks good painted, though... it'd be too bad if a great sculpt was ruined by awful paints...

Assuming L.G.O means Lego...I found this site: [Links are hidden for guests. Please Register.]

I can't vouch for them as I've never bought from them, but they are slick. I had no idea these were out there, though it doesn't surprise me given what custom stuff is out there for TF's.

The version you linked to is a prototype. It's what the original colors were going to be before they were switched to green. The cons exclusive just repackages the prototype with a different card.
I know this is an older thread, but I did go to ToyArena to get the Prototype colored version of the Cobra. I tried to order 2, but they ended up only having 1 in stock. I think their in-stock numbers were incorrect. I remember playing with the cart system and seeing they had 15-17 of the Cobra Prototype color. Do you know where I might be able to acquire one more?

EDIT: Nordcon and C.O.N.S. appear to be using the prototype for their exclusives, but I don't think those are available yet. Moreover, they will probably be more expensive too.

We (NordCon) are going to start offering non-attendee packages from our leftovers any day now - possibly Tuesday or Wednesday (just need to finalize one more detail) - but yes, they will be a bit more expensive since it was a limited run with cards that were custom-made for the convention.

Will any be made available to the online community? Thanks for the reply.

On topic, I can't wait to see more finalized pictures of the Hothead figure.

Absolutely. We didn't sell all the units at NordCon 2010 (had disappointingly low attendance numbers), so now the remainders will be sold to anyone who's interested.
