Dear lord! He-Man/Transformers crossover?

Headrobots has an Amazon store?



Too bad the base Transformer costs so much!

Big thank you to Headrobots for putting so much hard work into the 'tri-process paint' on the face.

That actually looks more like Skeletor than it does Overlord.
El Duque
Where can I get that throne?
Composite Ghost
They just made Gigatron awesome. I envy the people who end up with these kits.
Bountyan
Cool idea.

I believe that is a Marvel Select Mephisto throne.

Man, between this, the upcoming upgrade to SG Ultra Magnus from Maketoys and the guns/sword for Metalhawk from sunlink's shapeways store I'm glad I picked up a Botcon 2012 boxset!
Aernaroth
That thing is fucking glorious.

GaussGunner
XD! Veeery Good crossover for him .
Sol Fury
That is utterly amazing! Kudos to HighendTFs and Headrobots for coming up with a really awesome conversion kit.
backlash3906
Grabbed two. (:

What is it with Botcon '12 and toys first going unloved and then getting a huge surge in popularity later from a third party release?

Is it irony derived from Funpub being anti-3P this year?
Shatterpoint
Man, I was really hoping this would come out at a better time.

'Cause I ain't got no money.
PlanckEpoch
OH MY GOD THAT'S FUCKING AWESOME!!

Seriously wish I could stomach paying for an Overlord, because this is goddamn awesome.

Though it needed to be more than just a repaint. I wouldn't mind partsforming if he had a staff in addition to his two swords! Also, I TOTALLY second the notion for a Man-At-Arms set for Bulkhead!
Paxtin
lol Wut!?

I mean, it's brilliant, but...Wut!?
Sovietbot
Wow. Very nice!

Indeed it is. (: Marvel Select: Mephisto Action Figure - Marvel - ToyNewsI.com

ETA: Anyone know where I can get a spare set of Skeletor's staff and/or two-part sword?

I really want to commend Headrobots on their creativity here, and hope to see more property-crossover sets. (:
Foster
That's phenomenal. I almost want that POS botcon toy now.
Ra88
I was absolutely convinced that there was no way that the kit would work for this version of the mold.

I am glad to see that I was wrong. That is brilliant.
shibamura_prime
This opens up a whole new Jawbridge of possibilities. I approve.
JLvatron
In the words of Incroyus, ...

"inCROYable!!"
ORIO
Going back and forth on ordering this. It's so awesome
jbz
Order now. Change mind later. Can't do it the other way around if it sells out
Blitz.
this head does wonders for the toy

Don't wait, jump on it now!



If it sells out and you don't get one you'll be Skeletornery and full of Skeletoregret.
Josh
Hah! Brilliant
Metrotitan-Z
The kit looks nice and all, but Transformers and He-Man together is a little disconcerting, like some unholy mutant abomination... "The Thing That Should Not Be".
starscream-99
Dammit!!!!! I want this but I dont have Gigatron
Hicks_Royel
So, if anyone wants to get rid of their Gigatron head once they have this add-on, let me know.
CodeXCDM
...well shit... they just turned a questionable repaint into an AWESOME crossover one! Holy crap... really now I wouldn't mind finding this bass turd at some point in the future... >_<

Truth be told... I can see a Radicon or two now taking a regular Bludgeon and HR kit and giving him far more accurate Skeletor colors. Gigatron/Overlord is close enough, but mainly it's because the figure is a Skeletal Robot moreso than his colors I'd say... >_>

Still a very clever repaint idea... now if the throne and staff both came with him... it'd be absolutely amazing/awesome/must-buy/etc.
RedAlert Rescue
I like my Skeletor's with a Cape - so I'd love to see a custom cape for this made of Tanktreads and held with a collar pins made from drive wheels.

That would look dead neat
(Crikey it sounds like the wind is attacking me - and trying to get in )- If you never hear from me again you will know i've been squashed by a giant beech tree crashing in on me.

This looks neat but I don't need a blue Bludgeon.

Strarf
That is awesome.
Lumpy
That looks really awesome, but I'm still leaning towards just selling my Overlord instead.
beangrower
Hmmm. I should just repaint my banzaitron with bludgeon kit.
Insane Galvatron
Now I kinda wish I hadn't sold my Overlord/Gigatron....
Starfire22
...and all the people who sold their botcon overlord are probably kicking themselves right now..
JDK
Talk about a narrow market...
Scaleface
It's a small run store exclusive speciality item, and a repaint. Don't need to be that many.

Plus, even if you don't want to go full Skeletor, you might buy it just for the swords, which suck on Gigatron.
cobra zartan
Very nice headrobots!
shamanking282
So, would anyone that's buying this set be willing to sell the Overlord head? I'd totally want to have one for potential customs.

THis I like. More than I should because there's no accompanying He-Mech. Now I want a GDO Megatron just for hope the DO something with him.
