Titans Return Chromedome Update - Legends Head Variant Real, Probably Not A Running Change

Yesterday, we posted a story about a sighting of Titans Return Chromedome with the TakaraTomy head design. Since we posted that story, TFW2005 user Jedi Kermit has posted some more images that pretty well solidify what we're looking at here. Keep reading for our thoughts!

Update on the Titans Return Deluxe Chromedome found with Legends Chromedome's Headmaster: probably not a running change, but it IS real!

As you can make out in this photo, this is straight-up the TakaraTomy Headmaster figure in place of Titan Master Stylor. Same paint applications and all, and even the tan body (with a different shade of tan!) in place of Stylor's brown. This makes the running change hypothesis effectively impossible; it would have to be prohibitively expensive to run a set of TakaraTomy Headmasters, paint apps, plastic changes and all, and throwing them in with stock Chromedomes. This, coupled with the photos showing a wholly untampered package, pretty much leaves straight-up factory error as the source of these mystery figures.

How could that happen? Of course I have a hypothesis:

Let's assume that Hasbro's Chromedome was run before TakaraTomy's, but that they were basically run at the same time in the same factory. Things happen; figures get improperly painted or molded, and things get rejected. So, you're at the tail end of Hasbro's run, you have a handful of otherwise salable but headless Chromedomes, and you have this big bin of heads for the TakaraTomy version coming in. So you grab a couple and get the figures out the door and ready to ship.

I may be wrong, but either way this Chromedome variant is likely to be extremely limited. But they are out there - Happy Hunting, fellow collectors!
