Metalhead is an Unlockable Character in Guitar Hero III. He is a guitar playing robot who enjoys - what else - metal! He is only available to buy from the store on the PS2 and Wii versions of the game.
Metalhead is a robot character in Guitar Hero III. He was originally a warfare artifact hailing from the Soviet Union, but with the end of the Cold War he was reprogrammed to be a guitarist. Doesn't appear in the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, but he is an unlockable character in the Wii and PS2 versions (he, along with Elroy Budvis, can be bought in the Store from the beginning).
He has a bulky iron body, with wheeled feet and an acrillic dome for a head. Inside of it, he "wears" a military cap and sunglasses.
When you buy him, he comes with Metalheads Molotov, a laser gun with 6 strings attached.
He was also announced for the PS3 version, likely as downloadable content.
Metalhead's lifecycle began as a self-guided Russian warhead. After the Cold War he was disarmed and hocked for spare parts. A few toasters, some vacuum tubes, a '57 roadster, and a cheese grater later, and Metalhead was the first fully autonomous robot. Thus began Metalhead's full-on assault against all things slow and lame. Far from his humble Soviet silo beginnings, Metalhead is ready to get on stage and drop the bomb! -- Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock in-game bio
