Transformers Headmasters Wonderfest Exclusive Third Party Customs

Posted on 09-02-2010 at 04:34 PM by Sol Fury under 3rd Party Unlicensed
Wonderfest-Headmasters
Next, we thought we'd share this interesting auction from Yahoo Japan that has recently come to light. It's for a set of three updated Headmaster Warriors - Lione, Shuffler and Loafer. These three were originally a part of the legendary set of six who are among the rarest items from the Japanese Generation 1 run on their original release. These however are updated designs that were produced by a third party company under license from Takara-Tomy, and sold exclusively at Wonderfest (which would have been termed under the license agreement. Such "event exclusives" are fairly common among Japanese garage kit companies at conventions). All three function like the original toys, with robot and head modes, and can even attach to genuine Generation 1 Headmaster bodies! However, the designs are updated to included elements such as proper, individual legs for Kirk.

Good find. never seen those guys before.
MegaMoonMan
Are these fanmade kits or something?
Malach Ra
I want to yes, but licensed by tomy/tak, also I think its a wonderfest exclusive. Seen pics before, but I have never seen them for sale or any pics of the unassembled kits.
BraveMax
These are the wonderfest exclusive garage kit remakes of the original G1 Headmaster Jrs.

They are licensed by Tak/Tom, but not made by them.
Blue Meanie
How do I get these?!?!?! I must know, and I must change my underwear!
SpicyRichter
Neat redesigns of Shuffler Lione and Kirk? They look a lot more compact
VestigialHeart1
I hope HeadRobots steps up their game and starts crankin out some of these bad boys! The originals are awesome (I have the KO versions) but I would LOVE for them to redesign them in the same manner as Hardhead.

The things I'd do to get my greedy little paws on these things!!!
Sol Fury
Very interesting. I like them, especially the "proper" legs on Kirk.
Nerdicon
Yes please.

No, these are whole new designs.
TedimusPrime
Man, I don't even own any headmasters and I'm still shitting bricks! these look beautiful! Hey hasbro! look here!
WarConvoy
Oh My!!
I went to the link above and the price is 9,750.00 JPY
?????????????????????WF2010? - Yahoo!??????

As per EX.com Sept 2 2010\7:11 EST that converts to:
9,750.00 JPY = 115.678 USD
OR
9,750.00 JPY = 121.784 CAD

Who Would pay that much for X3 little KO\Custom Headmasters?
I don't care how cool they are I would not buy them for that price
That's the same amount as the X2 Crossfire 2 Set.
I just got my set and they ROCK!!!

That price is really reasonable. I've seen people sell repro headmasters and powermasters for around $60 on Radicons. Plus, the price probably includes the recouping of the license fee the kit maker had to buy. Compared to XFire 2, this set might only be limited to 20 or 40 sets. Their hand made as well. FansProject stuff has a way bigger run.
Might Gaine
They are probably going to go for a lot more than that. Wonderfest garage kits are made in small numbers and hard to find.
freezowave
These are pretty damn neat.

I'm gonna be super nice and not yell "fail"
Backscatter
They look really nice, but I have the orginals and still hapy with them.
Liokaiser
I love these Anime style headmasters!!!!!
Foster
They're really awesome, and they'd make great companion pieces for my KO 10-pack.
Automorpher
Top notch!

Now why can't we get something like these from the original Makers??? (Sigh!)

these are awesome. I wish we'd get a new headmaster or two in the generations line or in the new series. Especially digging the lion.
