    Like the details on the new head, something which I sorely miss on the regular Grinder head.

    But I do like the size of the regular head better. The size of the new one is more cartoon accurate, but I always thought Grimlock's cartoon head was too small for him.

    Guess I'll be sticking with the stock head.

    Maybe FT will package this head with Omega supreme?

    Doubt it. The new head is an optional choice

    New head looks great. Only odd part I couldn't help but notice, and I'm not trying to nitpick, is the odd shape of the 'septagonal' piece right on the side of his face where his jaw meets. Don't get me wrong, I just can't help but wonder why the odd shape where it looks like the lines behind it show where it should follow. :sly2:

    Ditto, noticed it as well, late yesterday, it looks a bit odd, like it needs to be raised or something!

    It just needs to follow the lines you can clearly see on the side that are underlying in order to be symmetrical and it would look like a normal hexagon.

    Gotcha, it should actually be a hexagon, I thought you were talking about the bit between the heptagonal piece and the neck, something looks off about it as well, don't know what it is.

    Edit: I'm okay with the piece between the neck and that other bit as MP-08's is just like that!:D

    I would wait for Caesium for Slag. Just my opinion. I sold my Scoria for him.

    That is the lowest price for Priority Mail from your location to ours. We have the item set at less than 1lb weight which would yield you the cheapest Priority rate available for your zone. Unfortunately, we do not offer first class mail due to the inability to consistently track it.

    Maybe consider building it into your stash and getting free shipping at $150?
