Headrobots have released some new images of their upcoming custom kit, Butcher. Butcher is a recolored version of their Hothead kit, a black recolor matched for Universe Classics Onslaught. This release comes with an extra part - a red dagger accessory which can clip to the main guns and act as a bayonet.

urgh. You mean I gotta get ANOTHER onslaught mold?
Sol Fury
Nope, nobody is forcing it on you.

Personally I approve, since not everyone will have every version of the mold, but some might still want the Headmaster for their version. Previous ones were matched for Hardhead, and while the TFCon one is awesome, it's a limited run not many will get to own.

Now watch this be a Kapow / BBTS shared exclusive

My 3rd party spirit is telling me to go ahead
Wyvern
Hmmm... I like this one better then the TFcon exclusive. Might have to sell it and get this one.
destrongerlupus
OK...so it's a Headmaster to turn Onslaught into....headmaster Onslaught.

Sure, why not!

I've picked up nearly every other Headrobots *master style variant, so why stop now

Who is this version based on? Or is it an original character?
Anguirus
^ I think it's just Onslaught. Except as a Headmaster.

Still in maybe territory. I don't think I'd pay as much as I did for Stronghold ($40) for it. Is that visor translucent? Would be a plus. Probably is, considering the knife. Of course, it depends on if I actually spring for a Takara Onslaught.
bestbuddy09
I'm buying it because it's what I always whated. A transformer that can shank other transformers.
Hoptimus
How much is this likely to cost? I bought the original Hothead set used so my old G1 Chromedome could have a real HM head, but I might buy this set for Onslaught, he looks so evil with it. And extra guns = good.
reluttr
I wonder if this head would work on the ultra silverbolt body... Would work rather nicely with skyfall.
DethPike
?? Easy pass. Enough already with Onslaught/Hardhead. Pick another robot and stick a head on IT.

I dont get why robots need knives? Guns make sense knives do not. Go try to stab your car with a knife and see what is damaged more.

It's a heated/laser knife. Ask Optimus Prime how effective his swords were.
MyTea Boc
Ooooh I like. Glad I held off trying to pick up stronghold now.
MrReatep911
i think the drawn image shows a better colour for onslaught and the head for it does look like a regular onslaught. i might try to get this because i dont have any other headrobots.

UM.. THAT ONE?
Notilator
those teasers! i thought it was a headmaster Snaptrap or Turtler ( y'know cuz its name is "butcher" as in butcher of the bogs, nyah? nyah?)aw well its just one less third party product i feel tempted to buy. :1
daytimeninja
Awesome. Can't wait to display both my Hothead and Butcher beside each other. The TFCon one is tempting too. I just might have to pick it up to complete the set. This is absolutely one of my favorite molds.

Yeah because Primes blades in TFTM did no damage whatsoever to Bonecrusher.

And G1 Prime had that axe for nothing too.

*Sarcasm*
GrimlockAutobot
This is a MUST HAVE. It makes for a better representation of Onslaught that's for sure.

C'mon BBTS where's the preorder?
llamatron
So it's like the TFCON one but better?

Good Point although the Movie prime blades were Goofy in my opinion.

But I do love the Laser axe in G1! thats what I wanted to ultimately get to if a blade is to do what knives do to skin to metal then thay would have to be New technology, not nessarily explained but at least its known that its made in a way we dont understand. like the gundam plasma swords or in Transformers plasma axe.

I do like the Headmasters here, and I think it would be neat to see more heads for more characters. It would be nice to see say a Sunstreaker headmaster.

no, one was aiming to form into Fort Max IDW, the other is still onslaught.

Uh, that and they represent different characters.

Stronghold is an earlier name for the Japanese character Fortress, and the Onslaught body represents his old Transtector. Short version: new take on Fort Max.

This is "Onslaught, only he's a Headmaster." In fact it seems to mesh better with the US concept of Headmasters, which allows a robot to be modified into one.

My immediate question was... how would this comparison look?? That's how I plan to display them.

Please excuse the crude, rushed digibash.

Nice pic!!

Wish I could afford the TFCon version. Hopefully Butcher is fairly easy to get because it looks BADASS!!
Houndvoice
Headrobots Butcher does not a proper Onslaught make.
The Madness
I love all of Headrobots new heads. It's a shame there probably isn't a big enough market for a new Zarak.

Impressive work with the Butcher head.
Stormcrow
I dig it, and that artwork is sick!
Sinnertwin
Lookin' real nice. I kinda want it, but at the same time, I still kinda prefer the regular head for Uni. Onslaught.
Gabriev28
I'm really really digging this and Blood cant wait to get these its gonna look awesome!!!
Driftx3
ATTENTION HEADROBOTS; MAKE SOMETHING FOR OTHER TFS!!!!!!

thank you, dismissed!
barrelks
Looks pretty damn dark, I like it. Gonna be nice to have all the Onslaughts lined up. I really liked the mold from the start even if it isn't the greatest attempt at looking like his G1 incarnation. Not a big fan of translucent knives and weapons (unless they are with translucent figures), but it is pretty nifty attached to the gun. Will be ordered as soon as BBTS has the preorder up.
Renidragon
Nice! I wanted the Hardhead one... but I don't have a Hardhead. I have an Onslaught, but the Stronghold one is a little out of my range.

This is good news for me.
Scaleface
Still waiting for them to make Headmaster Iguana!
hardreturn
at the 3rd party panel @ tfcon they said he was cancelled
Galva-Cannon
Hasbro's Hardhead was crying out for a new head, so Headrobots gave us just that. And they made him a Headmaster, like he should have been.

The Stronghold exclusive is kind of cool. I mean, it looks barely anything like Fortress Maximus, even if you remove some paint and wish really hard. But at least Fortress Maximus was a Headmaster, so it's a cool exclusive for some people to own.

But I don't understand what this is supposed to be. Hasbro's Onslaught wasn't crying out for a new head. His old head is fine, and he didn't need to be a Headmaster. While it's cool that they did a remould to the Hothead face, and made some new daggers, I can't imagine that anyone ever thought "I hope the next thing Headrobots make is a Headmaster Onslaught that reuses Hothead's guns/backpack again"

That said, if they absolutely had to redeco/remould this thing again, I couldn't have come up with anything better. You're a bit limited in what you can do when you've made an accessory that only works with one toy (ignoring the G1 compatibility)
Sean Whitmore
This one's gonna be a pass for me. The weapons looks awesome, but I have no idea what I'd do with that head.

ONE of my versions of that mold has to have the head it came with!

They posted another thread here that stated Iguana WAS NOT cancelled and they're not sure why that was stated at the con.
Sol Fury
Yeah, it's not canceled, news got confused between "no news" and "not happening". Apologies for the confustion.

Awesome. Glad to hear its not canceled.
TJ Duckett
Man, this thing looks incredible... now THIS is a Classics Onslaught! I hope they do one for the Japanese Vortex Tomahawk repaint next!
BB Shockwave
They should really stop using the same old mold, and move onto new projects.

Who needs a Headmaster Onslaught anyway, when his old head was just perfect?

You're in luck; Venksta's already got one coming up.

Some of us are still waiting for one for rotf mindwipe. Unless someone put one out and I missed it.
SkywarpsNipples
This is an easy pass, just doesn't do anything for me.

Seconded. It is the logical next figure to do. Mindwipe could seriously use a new headmaster head and a gun! My other Decepticons consider taking a knife to a gun fight rather silly, and taking a knife made of cockpit glass to said fight downright ridiculous!
