    Took long enough! I’m likely to take Chromedome and MAYBE Hardhead (I’m more of a fan of his TR headsculpt to be honest, even if it is less accurate). I’m good with T30 Brainstorm, and hearing the horror stories on Mindwipe (and the fact he seems to still be the same with soft plastic) makes me not want to pick him up. Shame, I want all 3 Decepticon Headmasters. Guess I’ll just be sticking with Skullcruncher (and even then, I hear he’s starting to get some issues, so I’ll have to check him.)

    Still hoping for the Headmaster Juniors someday in CHUG but I\'m not expecting them soon. Ideally they\'d be great retools for this line but its unlikely.

    I’ve already been to Walmart today and didn’t see any Retro Headmasters, but I did see WfC Kingdom Deluxe Class Wave 1.

    Seeing these in-package makes the fact that they are TR and not G1 an even bigger letdown.

    Yea, it's been that way for a bit now. But $19.87 is better than the hugely marked up $35 walmart.com is trying to charge for Chromedome (sold and shipped by Wal-Mart). Now that these are out, I really hope they can get their pricing algorithm straightened out and put him back at MSRP $19.87.

    It would be the surprise of the century if they announced new headmasters after the first two waves. They even have repaint potential as both their US and Japanese counterparts.
