    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.

    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.

    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!!!

    Very interesting. I like them, especially the "proper" legs on Kirk.

    Oh My!!

    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 :thumbdown 
    OR
    9,750.00 JPY = 121.784 CAD :jawdropper: 

    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!!! :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.

    They are probably going to go for a lot more than that. Wonderfest garage kits are made in small numbers and hard to find.

    They look really nice, but I have the orginals and still hapy with them.
