    Pictures to come. I just got the Cygar. I barely touched the head and the cigar fell off. I hadn't even removed the head from the foam yet. I had to glue the thing back on carefully because of the size. Just be careful. Also the screw on the head has a narrow prong holes so you almost have to use the screwdriver they give you. It's going to cramp the hand a little too.

    But once everything works and is set, the figure looks awesome though. Looks pretty awesome now. Would recommend it if it wasn't for the whole cigar falling off. I just need a Recoil now.

    Will do a full review this weekend.

    It does make a hell of a difference.

    My tracking still says "Your item left SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE on April 03, 2011. Information, if available, is updated periodically throughout the day. Please check again later." almost 2 weeks later :(

    Mine is still saying the same and the head arrived this morning (and I doubt it will change as the postie didn't bother getting me to sign for it)

    Is there a trick to removing the old head? it's hard to get enough of a grip of the teeny tiny screwdriver to unscrew it.

    I just used a normal screwdriver, it was fine. Though I do have a small-headed one.

    Great product. Really makes a massive difference to Kup!

    That new noggin looks really, really great on Kup. I can't wait until mine shows up... although I won't have a body to put it on cause I just finally ordered a Kup from HTS with their recent restock/pre-order a couple days ago. Oh well. How's the head articulation with the new head on? The new head looks a little bulkier, does that prevent it from being able to move around as much as the stock head?

    Just picked mine up from the PO. I'm baffled as to how they can afford to send 2 heads, a screwdriver and a plastic case that fits the truck bed with registered post for only $12 total

    My postie ignored the 'signature required' sticker and posted it as normal.

    This is the only 3rd party head I have ever considered buying. Placed my order today, I honestly can't wait to see the results in person.

    For the eyes? They are painted, not clear.

    looks incredibly good, cant wait till mine shows up.

    seems to make the whole figures body more proportional, though the legs are still way to big.

    Crap. After seeing these pics and comparing with regular Kup, I had to add this to my pile of loot. Just makes too big of a difference.
