It was ace. And they deserved it.

It looks totally awesome and you should get one. It's a good size, it's better priced than Code, and is a really nice, really accurate update to Hardhead. If I were still getting Headmasters for display, he'd totally beat out the Headrobots thing.

Doooo eeeeet!

Whats the chance of Toyworld moving on and also doing a Chromedome? The aesthetic of Hardbone is more my taste, and the size is better for me too.....

Thanks for the reminder! You played really well and deserved the win but we were shocking even allowing for the missing players.

Was looking to recoup what I paid for it - 35. It's in excellent condition but is missing the red power master Knok. Comes with missile, Skar and blue chest thingy. Pm me if interested - cheers.

Man, that's difficult they're both gorgeous. Red Alert just pops but Sideswipe is the red Lambo of my childhood dreams - aaaagh can't do it. Both or none lol! What about you?

Liking it a lot - looks spot on, really tasty. Headmasters were always cool - fact. Where is it on sale?

Agree on the colours - it's pretty clear, especially when you see him next to the equally garish Aurora (Searchlight) that the Photoshop has been doing overtime there.

See, I do love my Headrobots version, the Onslaught repaint was surprisingly great even without the upgrade, with the kit - BAM! Superb. I do think a lot of my affection for it comes from the similarities to his IDW version as well.

But this one, it's G1 all the way. And that's what has drawn me into FP's fx line. These updates are really taking me back. I think it's why I have no qualms letting go of the character updates I didn't own as a lad.

And as you say, a price has been touted and it's a good one.

Oh we know where this is headed.

She was knocked dead by my stuff too. Price cuts!
