    I'd say Hasbro's WeirdWolf looks just as good as Quadruple U.

    Still, we're probably not going to get a proper Apeface or Snapdragon from Hasbro, so I'd still love to see FP do those.

    This. I'd love to have FX versions of the Horrorcons.

    Admittedly, it's not. But it's easily more than twice as nice as a $40 figure, which is how much deluxes cost here (when Hasbro actually bothers shipping them to my country).

    Ouch. Yeah, I think if the regular figures were $40 here it'd be a much tougher call. Although given some of FP's prices lately (the size of the Trianix figures for their price, specifically) I wouldn't mind seeing newer figures in this line come in around $60 instead of $80.

    I guess Snapdragon is next, and he ought to be more complex than the others, so we'll see what happens if/when more details about that figure come out.

    after their Highbrow...meh...hoping their Hardhead, if they ever get around to it, isn't designed by the same guy who did, or should I say, finished their Highbrow. They really through me for a loop with the awesome video short of the transformation of Highbrow, and then we got something different. It's like they paid a guy to design it, then he quit...so they changed it a little so that he couldn't sue or something. I hope we get the same product of Hardhead as the video insinuates...but if they give us the okiedoke again?....i'm done.

    I agree. The FP headmasters feel like they shouldn't cost more than $60 (compared to other FP and other 3P releases) which I believe was their initial price. They do feature exquisite engineering, but other companies are offering a lot more for $80.

    Agreed. I've love to see Hardhead, Apeface, and Snapdragon. But I really do believe the latter two need some serious re-designing. As they're currently look, it doesn't seem promising. Here's hoping that with FP being semi-active once more (if it can be called that) they take the initiative and do some improvements.

    Hopefully they find a way to cover those robot arms. That's unacceptably hollow.

    The more they continue delaying him, the more they'll have to rework him. It's obvious that this was never nowhere near production and I believe we might still be a year away at least. They are doing this just to keep up fans' interest in their other projects. Sort of saying: "hi, we are still here!!".

    True, but on the other hand, there are no other CHUG-scaled Horrocons on the horizon, so...

    I just find this bizarre considering that they literally had physical prototypes of Snapdragon, and instead of finishing him and releasing him, they're showing off reworked renders....?
    like... ok? I'm still excited and I'll get it if its out but like.... come on...?

    And I would argue, there's still none in the horizon.

    Remember, this has been in the horizon for forever ... Just look at the date of first post.

    Still looks like a troll wielding two axes. I reallly hope they take another crack at that redesign
