    Like probably all of you in this subforum, I own and love the iGear Kup heads. Seems like this has been a wide selling success for them, so why not more replacement head kits? Sideswipe, Grapple, Blurr (to some), Preceptor, and so on. There is money to take and they've shown they have the knack. Why isn't an this a thing?

    Hells to the yeah! Here's what I want to see:

    Sideswipe
    Cliffjumper
    Prowl/Bluestreak/Smokescreen (with a ball jointed neck and replacement neck plate would be sweet)
    Red Alert

    Definitely. As soon as they get the Minibots and Impactor out, some new heads would be interesting (even though I didn't see the need for their Kup head it did look pretty nice).

    ^Totally.

    However, after they get some product out. (I also want those shark-clones) I'd agree with the idea of a Perceptor head!

    i'd be down with some more heads. my Kup looks really good with that cygar jutting from his mouth! red alert would be my first choice. take some cues from the MP version and offer two heads, one normal and one sparking. also, ditch the tiny screwdriver to save cost.

    Only head I want is one for Pyro. Also with some guns to make him more Pyro-y

    Everything else I can skip. Unless it comes with guns. Guns I would buy

    As per the us(ual), I'm with Orio. iGear has more than plenty on their docket. I've been waiting for almost a year for more than a CGI render of Presser, for one.

    Leozack and Skyquake's heads don't come off, plus Leozack's is fine

    Gonna agree with Pyro though, but... He needs at least one extra gun

    I don't have them near me, but they don't come off? How are they attached?

    I agree Skyquake and Pyro could definitely use them.

    I'd be on board for this. I love the Kup heads so much I bought two Generations Kups to give both heads new bodies. XD Sideswipe and Perceptor (IDW sniper mode) could use some new noggins (Red Alert is already covered by Beezelboss), not to mention Prowl, Blue/Silverstreak, and Smokescreen (much like Sideswipe, the face sculpts look very stilted/dated, and not very geewun accurate).

    A custom head to convert the Inferno mold into IDW Pyro would be awesome too, or an IDW Ironfist head plus lightformer cannon for some other sort of body (not sure what would work here--FOC Swindle?). An IDW Guzzle head, gun, and back cannon add-on for the ROTF Hailstorm mold would be great too. Oh, and a head and feet/rocket-guns add-on to turn DOTM Vortex into IDW Rotorstorm.

    Those metal pins underneath. I don't think they can be removed without some damage, and I'm sure not testing on either of mine

    ... Course, I'd prer a new Skyquake instead. From Silverbolt

    As long as they give me Impactor first I wouldn't mine a few new heads.

    Meh, a headsculpt is a relatively easy thing for them to do. I doubt it would take much away from research and development of full figures.

    Heck, their sculptors could probably design them on the side without any real impact on timings. I say go for it.

    While CHUG heads are always welcome, I'd also like to see stuff for Prime (Dr. Wu's Wheeljack head was a BIG disappointment in hand) and BEAST WARS! :)
