Head Shots Vol. 2 in exclusive color

Head Shots Vol. 2 is a set of the toy heads made by Play With This Too. They are designed in several color sets, and when placed on toy bodies form different fictional characters.

Lost Protectors

Head Shots Vol. 2 includes three heads designed by Ken Christiansen. They are shaped like a space helmet, a robot and an alien.

In their exclusive colors the heads are the characters Blackjack, Moon-Unit and Xando. In the retail colors they are the characters Hammerendous, Protector Zero and Who is Ch'ddar-O?.

According to Play With This Too the exclusive recolor of Moon Unit would look good on Flarestrike, while Blackjack would look good on Wrecktifier.

Development

The Head Shots Vol. 2 were designed and named by Ken Christiansen.

The crowd funding exclusive colors of Head Shots Vol. 2 were revealed online in November 2014. The retail colors were revealed during the Lost Protectors Kickstarter.

Head Shots Vol. 2 were among the stretch goals for the unsuccessful Lost Protectors Kickstarter campaign. They were to be unlocked if the campaign raised at least $135,000.[1]
