    Those guns need painted or something. The box art is crazy good though. At any rate this outta be cheaper than Fansproject's in the aftermarket.

    If it isn't outrageously expensive I'd buy it.

    Nice! If it's $20 or so, I'll be buying it.

    Looks cool. Wonder if it'll be cheaper than FP's original $30 price.

    If I yawned any harder I might break my jaw.

    About as MEH as it gets.

    The FP kit offered more and looked WAY better.

    If this included something to change the look (like maybe a front spoiler perhaps...) I would be all over it.

    Just comparing the head and not the accessories, this one puts the FP Kit to shame.

    I disagree. But I'm happy that everyone who missed out on FPs may be able to finally upgrade their CJ

    I wonder if their aim was for a very cheap alternative. Considering this looks like its factory made, compared to FP's original "garage kit" hand made version. I would be surprised if they sold this for more than $20. But the run will also play a factor.

    Really? Because I seem to recall it selling for three hundred dollars on eBay.

    Anyway, I'm among those who thinks the head looks better than FP's kit, but I'm still not sure I'm ready to shell on this. My philosophy on add-on kits is to make normal figures like great, not make bad figures look normal.

    Yup, FP's kit originally cost $30. The $300 your referring to is the aftermarket price.

    Eh, that head's not doing it for me. Neither did the FP one, really. Why is it so hard to get CJ's head looking right?

    Honestly, I've been pretty happy with my head-swapped Cliffjumper using the WFC version's head. I've gotten used to the mismatched reds, it looks more or less like Cliffjumper, and you can't beat the price.

    The face looks a little off, but the color looks pretty well matched. The WFC cliffjumper looks a little more like red alert to me sometimes.

    The face is just a little off but what push this set behind the FP one in my opinion is the absence of spoiler and the bazooka being just a big gun. :(

    +I like the head, I would prefer that the guns were black mind.

    Since the spoiler is just clipped on that is easy to change, and the supercharger is easy to change to so even without a new bumper a new supercharger and rear spoiler would be nice.

    I like his Pistol though.

    The only other suggestion i'd have made is that the bar on the back of the rifle and the ridge along the top of the barrel was a clip point as it's almost that already.

    Maybe another one underneath to take a bayonette (from Recon Ironhide).

    But if the set is reasonably priced I'd buy it for sure.
