    I'm looking at getting the iGear custom Kup head set and noticed some say Kup 01 and others say Kup 02. I also noticed that some of the figures and custom head sets apear to be a slightly differant colors, can anybody help me with this. I haven't bought the Kup figure or head set yet but the head set I've been watching on Ebay says Kup 01.

    Kup 01 is for the Generations version and regular United Kup, who both share the same plastic colors. Kup 02 is for the eHobby United Kup which has completely different plastic colors.

    Thanks for the info. What do you think the chances are that the November repackage release of Generations Kup will be the same Kup 01 color sceme?

    Also Does anyone have the custom Kup heads set? I wanted know how good the quality is, how difficult they are to install, and if they still allow for transformation? I assume yes on my last question.

    You don't even have to wait until November. I recently purchase my kup head from this seller on ebay ★Kup01 Kup Head Kit TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS G1 Igear★ | eBay

    Took about a week or two though to get to me after I paid but they have it in stock.

    The quality is pretty good! I love my kup head, after I install the head on kup he is easily one of my favorites. You can still transform him as well.

    The Kup heads are great IMO. Only thing is that I don't transform him when I use the cy-gar head, just in case.

    Are your local stores not picking up more cases of Generations? Because they're all over the place up here: TRU, Walmart, Target.

    You shouldn't have to wait until November, they should be at retail now.

    No my Walmart still has 1 WFC Soundwave, 3 WFC Cliffjumpers, a Dirge, and a Skullgrin they got in April or May. All other TF toys are DOTM toys. We don't have a Target or TRU, but I will be going to the nearest town (80 miles away) that has both and I'll probablly check Target then. I checked TRU last week when I was in there and it was the same as Walmart all DOTM and MP Hot Rod.

    There's no risk to the cy-gar, because his head tucks down into his chest, protecting the cy-gar, and it clears any obstacle cleanly.

    Ordered it when I first read about it. I would recommend it over the original head 100%!

    I always wondered why a robot needed a cigar. These are not movie toys where they learned from the internet.

    I think that Kup looks very good with the cigar head, but I have an issue (maybe silly) of spending as much on the head as I did the figure, lol.

    Strictly speaking, it's for aesthetics. Kup's got a bit of a gruff ol' drill sergeant vibe to him, so they gave him the cigar to make him look like one.

    From a story standpoint, though, it's not actually a cigar, but a chemical inhaler that Kup needs periodic doses from to survive, after some sort of toxic exposure. That was the justification IDW gave it, anyways.

    I'm beginning to wonder if my head set was lost in shipping. The last update to it's tracking was it's dispatch overseas, and that was more than 30 days ago. It is quite a bummer because I've already waited forever: I ordered the set back in April, only to have it backordered until last month.
