Pre-Production Hothead Duro-5 Pic heavy

So I got my hands on a pre-production version. what you see is pretty much what you will get come production version. Just need to tweak a few things like some joints arent tight. They messed up and gave me two right arms, etc.


Here is what you get. 2x rifles, 1x cannon, G1 neck adapter, and 2 halves of wonder backpack.


Here it is mounted onto Universe Hardhead





It is simple, just plug the wonder pack into the back of Hardhead.






Then all the guns can plug into the wonderpack. there is even room for the stock shield to remain mounted.

Now to remove the original head. Use a screwdriver.





Now to put on Duro-5.



FEEL THE POWER OF HEAD-ON!!!!!!!!






But wait, what is this impotent little thing attached to my forearm? That is my main weapon? We must do something about this.





Badow!!!! All natural Hardhead enhancement. Dont just overcompensate in size, but also in sheer number of massive weaponry!!!



Kinda makes G1 look a little stiff.



Now on to fix G1 Hardhead.



And just like that!!! A handsome robot!!!


More pics to come, dont post yet.

Re: Pre-Production Hothead Duro-5 Pic heavy

You can also "enhance" your potency for G1 hardhead. remember folks, overcompensate.




But what if you dont have original G1 weapons? Well fear not, for Hothead upgrade can be used as a G1 substitute. Same flavor, less calories.






Oh did I forget to mention that the neck adapter activates the Power Meter.



Oh yeah and Duro-5 is more poseable and can handle weapons.

Re: Pre-Production Hothead Duro-5 Pic heavy

I regret not picking Hardhead up at the burlington Holiday Inn toy show for $30 back in March....I had $30 to spare but noooo I don't really need him...I had the Onslaught mold already...dumbass.

Man it's amazing how much a simple head sculpt swap can change the look of a mold.

These guys need to never stop making things. Having the hands compatible with lego accessories is a stroke of genius.
