    Okay have to ask, I have been told that it is only the front half of the head and you have to use the back of the original kup head to complete it, is this true or not? Your answers will help me in deciding to buy this piece or not!

    It's an entire head, front and back. You've been told a ½ truth. It is a great addition and you'll love it with no regrets every minute you have it. I picked up both the Generations and eHobby/United versions.

    No, it is both pieces of the head, front and back. Both head that are included are this way. They also have screws in them to keep them together. Pull the trigger on this set, it is so worth it.

    It's an assential purchase IMO. Turns Kup from looking like a scared old man who may or may not have just soiled himself into a grizzled badass.

    I have both versions as well, soooo worth it. Don't drag your feet, they are disappearing from most online stores. Was hard to find an e-hobby set. You will NOT regret this purchase I promise you. iGear hit a home run on this one, straight up.

    The iGear kit really gives him some much needed personality, which is something that a lot of the stock heads on Classics figures seem to lack. The stock head on Kup is just too stoic and generic.

    I jumped on the set of heads when the order for the gun set came out. They came in ($12 shipped which is an awesome price) and I love the head. I thought I could do without it but now that I have it I know that I can not be without it.

    I tried to put someone (possibly the OP) right about this on another thread. Very weird rumour.

    Great toys though, you can also use these as a gateway drug to third party toys, by giving the non Cygar head to a friend.

    All things considered, this is probably the best 3rd party accessory I bought all last year.

    For its price, best 3 party product ever.
    Kup looks MUCH cooler with one of those heads, I personally prefer without Cy-gar but they both look great.

    What are you waiting for? Order it already! The cy-gar head turns a dementia-addled, shell shocked old robot with a scared, awkward face into a badass, Cybertronic version of the A-Team's Colonel John "Hannibal" Smith. It turned an ok toy to one of my top 5 favorites in my collection.

    I actually regret not buying this when I had the chance, wouldn't mind buying the non-cygar head off anyone if they're willing.

    It is still readily available on the iGear site for $12 shipped. $18 for the E Hobby version.
