    Dear head robot people, this is an EXCELLENT chance to make a crossover TF/GI Joe item. Please produce this figure, or at least a significant number, in red with black tank-treads (HISS tank), or even blue with black treads and metallic robot face (Cobra Commander).

    Dear HissTank.com... you got a bunch of Transfans in your ranks, right?

    Hardhead looks great (as many have said).

    I have an idea for the Cobra. It would be HIGHLY cool on Alternator Wheeljack / Grimlock. Any chance on getting a conversion plate for that?

    Two other ideas:

    How about a Hunter headmaster for Sunstreaker (granted there would be no place for him to sit... Although I suppose he could double as a powermaster in car mode...

    There is a design for a headmaster to Powermaster Optimus that also turns into his Roller vehicle. Any chance of that, or improving on that design? I always found it funny to have his huge head rattling around in Optimus' trailer in vehicle mode.

    This add on really makes that $12.99 Hardhead worth it.

    Shut the front door! Is that headmaster actually popping up in a standing position in the cockpit of the tank...awesome.
    Well I'm sure if these guys can't fund this - someone else will for sure. This idea has been floating around everywhere ever since HH was set to release

    You know, not to get too off topic, though it is related, seeing all the positive replies in this thread for this product makes me think that Hasbro may need to look into bringing back Headmasters. I know it was stated once that they liked the idea but were hesitant due to easily lost heads; personally, I look at it like this. If I'm going to be so careless with my toys that I loose the heads for Headmasters, then why include anyaccessories with any figure, people loose those too. Hasbro, look at the positive reactions here to what looks like an awesome product. We want more actual Headmasters, not just look-alike homages to them!!!

    This set looks fantastic! I liked the Hardhead figure enough when I purchased it, and I gave him the one G1 Hardhead gun in my possession. However, this set will improve it in a major way!

    I don't own any G1 Headmasters right now, but I may have to buy the Cobra head just to help make Hothead a reality.

    Now that's the Hardhead we all know and love.

    Consider this bought (if BBTS carries it, that is)

    that's what I asked...even more curious, will it just snap onto the existing peg? doesn't seem like it would...the peg with the LED is a good 1/2 inch sticking up...

    :drool:  I love Headmasters! If they weren't so fucking expensive I'd have them all!

    Must buy! Even for Onslaught at first!

    I'm debating whether to try to hunt down a Hardhead or just use this with my Onslaught. I could always repaint the thing myself, this headmaster's not that big so it shouldn't be that hard a paint job.

    Or is there any chance of a repaint meant for Onslaught also being made?

    If a repaint is made then it wouldn't be Onslaught since the head is not a homage to Onslaught to begin with.

    I'm so stoked on this. It was such an obvious idea and I'm glad someone made it happen. I'm pre-ordering this the second it gets listed!

    I feel bad! I just purchased Hard Head from a fan here on TFW. I hope he doesn't get pissed with me.

    I just preordered the cobra to help out, since I was leaning towards it anyway because I like good-quality fan products.
