Transformers: Generations: Retro Headmasters Deluxe Class Chromedome
A few words about the box. It’s gorgeous. A beautiful G1 box complete with box flap. When I saw pictures, I was thrilled that they were finally reissuing the G1 Headmasters! Then I realized what was actually in the boxes, and I was distinctively less excited. Having said that, at least they are repainted and not the same toys in new boxes.

Hasbro used the G1 toy accurate heads from the Transformers: Legends line, but they used the more G1 accurate paint jobs.

Previous Mold Use: Titans Return Deluxe Class Chromedome, Takara Legends Deluxe Class Chromedome, Titans Return Deluxe Class Breakaway
He looks great, and is definitely the most G1 toy accurate version of Chromedome we’ve seen yet. I always found Chromedome the most boring of the G1 Headmasters, so I don’t have much to say about him.
Overall: If you have this mold and aren’t a completist, then you can probably skip Chromedome, unless you just want to display him in the awesome box. If toy accuracy matters to you, or if you don’t have Chromedome, this is a great opportunity to pick him up for $20.
