    Wow! I must say that when it comes to figures that should be big and boxy and buff looking ToyWorld really hits the mark! ^^ I'm glad I've got him ordered, can't wait to have him in hand

    That's only $2 materials cost you're talking about. If the extra parts were unable to fit within a single plastic sprue and facilitated the use of another mold, then you're probably talking an extra $50-100k.

    I love the FP headmasters I have but the toyworld headmasters are just more fun. It is about the size and about how easily the little guys interact with the vehicle. TW really get the use of weapons and accessories - lots of them and lots of holes to put them in.

    I find the TW Headmasters to be too lazy in the engineering department. I especially hate how the Headmaster face isn't hidden when the partner is in robot mode. This one looks to be the best of the 3, but I'd have to see FP's version first.

    Look forward to it :) 

    Think it's released in the UK sometime early July - so seeing a video before would be great :)

    Hardbone certainly was more fun to play with i.e. his weapon options are so varied and can be integrated in many poses.

    I've always thought that Toyworld makes the most official looking figures. Almost all their figures design wise you could see being made by Hasbro or Takara. They typically don't have crazy transformation steps, they are solidly built, etc. That said I prefer the look of FPs headmasters so I'm just hoping they do them all eventually.
