Transformers vintage G1 Headmaster Hosehead
Admittedly, I decided to use reproduced stickers from Toyhax.com to make the figure look more decent.
A member of the “small Headmasters” class size, Lug was formerly an all-star athlete back on Nebulos.
As a gimmick in the old G1 toyline, Headmasters reveal their skill levels when you plug in the Headmasters into any Transtectors.
Always eager to help, Hosehead means well and strives to perform his search and rescue missions even under the most dangerous of conditions. Unfortunately, the young, scatterbrained Autobot has a tendency to panic when under pressure and has occasion made things worse for everyone involved. Being binary-bonded to the more level-headed Lug seems to have had a positive effect though.
Hosehead stands roughly 6.25 inches tall.
As with the other Autobot Small Headmasters, the heads come with additional helmets with pistols mounted on the helmet’s sides.
He comes with his Accelerator Rifle, which can speed up its targets to make them move uncontrollably.
Unlike most Headmasters that can ride inside the vehicle modes of their Transtectors’ alt modes, Lug can’t ride into the truck’s cab. You will have to use Hosehead’s helmet as a seat for the figure to ride in the center of the truck.
Fire ladder can be opened up.

Another big thank you to Ebay Seller primetarget08 for Hosehead. Impeccable service and bullet-proof packaging for loose figures. It’s very much appreciated.
