Blog #2040: Toy Review: Transformers: Generations: Retro Headmasters Deluxe Class Highbrow

Transformers: Generations: Retro Headmasters Deluxe Class Highbrow

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 Highbrow, Takara Legends Deluxe Class Highbrow

Highbrow looks awesome. He uses the Legend face sculpt with a much more G1 accurate paintjob. Highbrow was always a favorite of mine. He’s one of the best helicopter Transformers ever. I still wish they had given him the triple blades.

Overall: If you have this mold and aren’t a completist, then you can probably skip Highbrow, unless you just want to display him in the awesome box.

Thanks for reading!
