    This is one of my favourite characters ever and he never had a good representation of himself! here's my attempt.... he's made from a KO Robot Masters Double Convoy, fully painted and sculpted head.


    the paint is still curing so, here's a couple of bot mode pics.

    Not bad. Yes, a larger head might help the appearance.

    Very nice work. I have one of those knockoffs too, and I've been wondering what to do with him (he's been used partially as a paint tester :p ).

    If you're after a new head, and sticking with the 'toon style face, then how about an Alt Swindle head? I haven't tested the size, but I imagine it should work pretty well.

    Looks pretty clean. I agree that a bigger head would be nice

    Cool! I also have one of these figures, and was wondering what to do with it... was leaning towards a Blitzwing mod, but Hardhead is a good idea too (especially with the attention he's gotten in the fandom lately).

    I really like the head you made, but I agree that a larger one would fit the mold better. As mentioned, Alt Swindle would be a good match, but maybe you could even integrate a Headmaster gimmick too!

    Where could I find this KO? I've had a kitbash in mind for a while and I need a tank TF for the alt mode.

    Too big? Really?

    Is this the normal-sized Reverse Convoy KO, or the OVERSIZE version? The oversize one should fit an Alt Swindle head perfectly.

    i think it's the oversized one, but since i don't have swindle or rollbar it won't help either way... i've finished his face...now onto his head/ helmet...

    oh and


    "Hardhead...needs a universe figure!!!!!!!!"

    so very true!

    Well, judging from Hasbro's repainting patterns, we may yet see one in Universe repainted from CD Red Alert...

    I'd buy that. I never got the mold before so a Hardhead version would be sweet for me
