Headrobots has shared with us some images of their next release. Drone is a customization kit that can be used to customize your Hunt for the Decepticons Tomahawk or Dark of the Moon Vortex into a Classics Whirl! It features a new head, new weapons modelled after Generation Whirl's guns, alternate "classics" style feet and optional ski parts for the full Generation 1 style. Read on and check them out, along with a tease of another upcoming project.

Thank you!!!! My Tomahawk has been sitting there for far too long

Edit: Any chance of an alternate head for a rotorstorm later?
Geterman

Was about to say something along those lines... I'm sure folks might be interested if for the feet alone... haha...

Truth be told... I see the "Energon Bulkhead" mold as being far more suited for Whirl than this... and this mold would make a great Rotorstorm. (The prior is a giant figure though, and less available than Tomahawk, so I see why it was chosen though.)

Still, the kit's overall pretty nice. Don't think folks will shell 30 bucks for a set of feet for Springer though.
hardreturn
so they're doing a gigatron kit? interesting
CodeXCDM
^ Yea, but it's a direct repaint of the Bludgeon kit from what the teaser shows. (namely a Blue Blood head... there's a joke here...) Guessing they'll consider doing the same for GDO Megatron possibly?

Truth be told, if they could put a set of those swords in a stand-alone kit for like, 15$ I'd be interested... Megatron could use new blades, and his head needs no replacements/upgrades.

That Gigatron kit looks like Skeletor. ?????? x Headrobots: He-Man crossover?
Naztok
Great to see more from these guys!
MyTea Boc
Sweet mother of pearl, is that a Skeletor deco for the gigatron mold?
Timesynch
*in Finn and Jake voices* "It's evil headrobot wrecking time!"

Looks great! Not-Whirl especially looks sexy in black using the Tomahawk mold. Wish HR would make a new add-on kit to convert DotM Vortex into Classics Rotorstorm. Doooo eeeeet. It'd be easy money, for sure.

Exclusive Gigatron converted to Skeletor? Crazy.
MegaMoonMan
I wish they would go back to doing new molds for transforming headmasters, I don't care about any of this crap.

I'm sure some people will, though.
slugslinger2004
I kinda want that Drone kit, just for the head though since I don't have GDO Springer.

EDIT: Should the feet have some sort of heel support?
Aernaroth
I love when you give us head, headrobots.
archieboy
This may just be the first HR product that I'm gonna get...
supervir2
Been waiting! Ready to pre-order! Also excited as it is one more down before Savant
beangrower

Estimated to Arrive 4th Quarter 2012
Of course it would be coming out in December.
brr-icy

daytimeninja
Looks awesome, can't wait to get it!
ORIO
Pre-the hell-ordered.
Shatterpoint
Personally I'm more excited for friggin Skeletron.

Myeh!
deathsheadII
give us the skyhammer upgrade please!!!!
Bountyan
I can't wait to get this. I'm conflicted on whether or not I should buy a DOTM Vortex or just use my Tomahawk.

"AND HE PRAYS!!!!..." That he gets one of these skeleheads.
Timesynch
^ I'm still holding out hope HR will give us a Classics Rotorstorm upgrade kit for the DotM Vortex mold one of these days, so I'm using Tomahawk for the Drone add-on (I find him nicer in all black too; makes the chrome weapons pop more).
xanthax
Hell yes! I've been waiting for this set to come out for some time now. I was just complaining to someone last week that I did not have a Whirl for my classic Autobots shelf (he's pretty much my hands down favorite character in MtMtE).

I need to get dusting on my Tomahawk.
igniz1984
looks awesome, but not a fan of the character. Cant wait for there upcoming releases though, tauros, ronin, & darksol look awesome and cant come any sooner.
Quantum
YAY!!!! Sign me up for three of these bad boys!
SCPrime
so using this kit on tomahawk to convert it to whirl? and use it on vortex to convert it to what?

...also Whirl. If anything the Vortex scheme is a bit closer to what his actual colors are supposed to be... however, the head is cast in black since Tomahawk was a more widely available version of the mold (at least stateside).

I still think they should consider a Rotorstorm kit for Vortex at least... I mean really, look at the Tomahawk/Vortex mold... look at the G1 figure.



then look at this thread here: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radico...otorstorm.html



All they would need is another head... and keep the other accessories in for the lulz... the stock missiles work fine for Rotorstorm's big cannons I suppose.
rosewater
They definitely should sell a separate set of just the feet for all those gdo springers!
Torque
Been dying to get this-bout time!!

oh OK. would need a repro label Autobot symbol to cover the decepticon symbol on vortex then.
Kraken
Epic story for Epic add on kit is Epic! Been on the fence about this, but my thirst for a Whirl means I'm sold.
thielmj
the skeletor overlord is pretty interesting, the drone i think is going to be a pass for me.
Scaleface
I just want an Ignana headmaster.

Yes, just feet and maybe some parts to give Springer his third mode.
Fast_Draw
I sold my Tomahawk a while ago, but I do have Vortex, Spinister, and Springer. I may get it for Vortex.

What's the next main release (not counting the Gigatron thing, which I may get depending on the specifics)??

There's an idea. A few Radicons here have showed off wheels and kitbashed parts (hinge joints from Activator TFA Bumblebees) to give GDO Springer his 3rd (ground vehicle) mode.

I think that Reprolabels should come up with a whole set for the Vortex-Drone combo, in order to make some areas of the Vortex mold more bluish and less gray.
Scaleface
I do like it when a 3P company supplies some sort of suppporting fiction, even this simple photo-comic was fun to read. I'm surprised they used the TFcon characters, especially Toxin.
Orodruin
Pre-ordered. Very excited for this, especially if it's coming out that soon.

I hope the DotM Skyhammer set follows next, that's the one I'm most looking forward to.
GrimlockAutobot
The feet from this kit could probably be used on GDO Generations Classics Springer to give him a more standard look.
Rotorstorm
I like the fiction idea but the feet alone look to improve th etomahawk mould no end.

They ought to sell the feet alone as well for those with springer. Personally, I've made a Rotorsotrm from this mould as a commission and it sort of works but I'd be happier with a proper 3rd party offering.
Autobot Burnout
The feet have to be the greatest thing about this kit. While I don't mind the hollow foot look on my Tomahawk, being able to make them more solid is something I am not at all adverse to, and GDO Springer desperately needs a set of those feet as well.
