Headrobots Next Release: Blood, The Dark Warrior Upgrade Kit

Posted on 12-08-2010 at 09:40 AM by Deefuzz under 3rd Party Unlicensed
blood01
The next Headrobots project has been revealed, and it is two heads in one! The sword accessories can be used with modern or classic Bludgeon as well!

By just rotating the head and putting the helmet back on you get a different face! Blood's two blades will be rigid ABS plastic that will be chrome plated in a tough, durable finish. The proportions for the swords are more realistic as well as the tank turret in tank mode!

This head for the master of Metallikato will cost around $16.95, with pre-order links going up soon.

Holy crap that is awesome!
Orodruin
Neat! Quite an improvement, I do believe I'll acquire one.
exomega255
I like the pricing!

I hope there will be one for Banzaitron as well!

Me too. If it was CrazyDevy it would cost you $75 and your left nut.

When I stumbled in here I had zero interest in this upgrade set. Then I saw the pictures and well, CONSIDER ME INTERESTED.

The price is good so I look forward to seeign the final product.

Thanx

sucks for those with only one nut then...

Good going on the pricing. This is so reasonable I might even get 2
Thundershot
Will be mine!!!

Wait, I thought Blood was going to be an upgrade for the Bludgeon that comes with Whirl?

No complaints because this is much better... but what about Whirl?
Pyro
The initial pictures showed this as being an upgrade for the 2 pack Bludgeon, that was a repaint of Wreckage. Did you change their minds about that set or is it compatible with both? Regardless that is an awesome looking upgrade kit, that I'll be pre-ordering when the links go up.
Hobbes-timus Prime
Bought for the swords alone.
Draven
VERY cool. Consider it bought!
PredaconElder
The one based on the IDW version looks much better than the ugly Takara/Hasbro scuplt.
Jarodimus
Looking very nice! Excellent price, too.

Not to threadjack, but what's the ETA on the Iguana Headrobot?
aledromo
If only someone would release a similar upgrade for Drift's swords.
Predaking
I just bought Bludgeon yesterday so this is a no brainer as far as I am concerned.
Optimus Prime
Well dang, for something this cool and inexpensive, I will probably have to buy a set to go with my all-time favorite Voyager toy.
IceWilly
Looks great, my Alphamagnus head does this job well enough though. Great option for everyone else though, and a great price.

I am hopeful that with the change away from the Bludgeon/whirl two pack that headrobots will put out a Whirl head for the tomahawk mold. The only problem is that doing that would mean that the figure would need to be repainted (not a problem for me, but for others surely)
aey103
Interesting, just not sure how much. Need to pull my Bludgeon (as well as most of my entire collection...moving sucked and not having a chance to set my displays up yet sucks more) out of storage to see how much this set would intice me to upgrade.
miscreant
Sold!

For the first half of the set. And then when it damages your toy, they'd blame you and then ignore you.
netkid
Where does the tank turret piece store in robot mode?
Weitat1988
omg this upgrade is a must have !
aledromo
Think it'll require a surgical (read: non-reversible) head removal? I've kind of grown to like ol' skelebug a little. Not sure I'd be willing to say goodbye forever, but I'm sure interested.
GNX 0014 Purity
Cool Bludgeon is getting a G1 Accurate Head want this
Anguirus
Holy cow! I may have a use for my spare Bludgeon...or, hell, my main one.
blackout501st
looks like i might be getting my first headrobot!!
SAF7
I'll be honest, I'm not a big fan of the G1 head. It just seems... off to me.

The IDW head, though, looks great! I'll need to see it in color first, but I may get this for that head.
Prime Evil
First off, I'm very happy that there is another 3rd party company that does quality work like Fans Project. Your prices are very fair and I have your 1st Cobra head release and your HotHead release and love them both. Also have the new Alt HH on preorder. I'm hoping that you will still do the regular release of Blood for the Dlx size movie fig. I will buy both Voyager and Dlx size versions.

Oh, and I'd like a G1-esque head for my Animated Arcee if possible.

*edit*
Have you thought about doing a joint project with someone for the Cobra head? I don't own any G1 Headmasters figs, but just like to support your work. I probably will NOT buy any G1 toys for the headmaster.
Creaky
Hmm. They've changed their minds? Well, sadly I'll have to pass then. I hate that toy.

Unless it's designed to fit the deluxe too. But who knows.

No, I saw the preorder, it's only 58.00 and your right nut.
I'll get 2 of these please. One of the only modern molds I bought 2 of!
Mechafire
Badass. Will probably be picking it up. Kinda surprised at how low the price is, but hey, I'm not complaining.
Kranix
Beautiful head and all, but being i own a few of the headrobots creations i feel let down that there is no robot mode for this head
Optimist_Prime
Is it just me or does that skull sculpt look kinda... Wonky. It looks like it's smiling and has a pig's snout. However, I will not loose faith yet. I'll probably end up nabbing this after a full color shot is released.

After all... Bludgeon was that catchy Foo Fighters tune, and not a Headmaster.
BScorpinok75
More cool stuff. More money to be spent. Besides that price is too good to pass up.
Opticron Primal
17 bucks?! Holy crap, Headrobots just jumped to my second-favorite 3rd party company right after FansProject.

Definately gonna get this. The IDW face will be my choice.
Kupp
Now this I want, badly.
deadend945
Well now that does look good, however getting it in the uk may be a pain in the arse.i agree the skull head does look off but IDW head looks good.really dont see the point in the gun barrel section but still very impresssed.Hasbro really should have cast his thighs in black, I painted mine and it makes the figure much better in both modes.
Wollstone
I'll be getting it just for the swords.
Anguirus

I actually had that thought. It could be a Headmaster and have the G1 face, and bam, suddenly "good enough" Animated Arcee becomes "pretty much Rebirth Arcee."

Are you, uh, familiar with the human skull? YMMV on the nares, they just look flattened and "robot-ized." But without skin every skull looks like it's "smiling."
prowl26
HECK YEAH, I was figuring they would do this. Now I just need to get Bludgeon
SMOG
Affordable upgrade kits means Headrobots will be getting my money on this one. YAY! This is a lesson that should be learned by all 3rd party companies. Drop your prices, and you open up the market to a whole wide range of fence-sitters like me!

Are you listening TFCLUB?!? Your Devastator deserves to be owned by all fans!

(of course I just started my own Bludgeon replacement head project... so this is kind of a kick in the head! )

FCatCH76
I have a MISB Voyager, that I my wife grabbed but have no interest in keeping the figure so PM me an offer if interested.
slugslinger2004
Looks good. I'm glad they decided to make this compatable with the ROTF toy, since I skipped the 2 pack. I was tempted to sell my Bludgeonbefore because I hated the wide headsculpt, but now Headrobots has given me a reason to keep it
StayingInTheBox
Yup...I'm interested.
VestigialHeart1
Looks amazing but i still want the deluxe version too. Voyager Bludgeon is way too out of scale with Thunderwing and Skullgrin.
Hobbes-timus Prime
Just so Headrobots doesn't waste that development time they spent on the Deluxe Upgrade:

I would totally buy those swords/cannons as a "Storm Shadow Mech" upgrade for '07 Wreckage.

There's a pic where it looks like it stores on the back in bot mode...so on top of the tank turret some how.
bithomas
This looks like a really nice upgrade to Bludgeon. Consider it preordered as soon as possible!
WayS'L'
I'm loving this but have they really cancelled the deluxe/voyager two pack set? If so that's a big shame, they looked awesome in their own right, especially the whirl head.
Optimus Vader
I need to get into making crappy looking replacement heads for toys. Seems like easy money.
VestigialHeart1
Aso, I'm going to be pissed if they don't release the deluxe kit because I bought the two pack after hearing the news and have virtually no use for them otherwise...
