    Super stoked to own this guy and the awesome kit from Renderform.

    I plumped for the full kit which comes with

    1 x head
    3 x coloured faceplates
    2 x black guns
    1 x clear red gun
    1 x mini comic

    Fits on super easy, all you have to do is unscrew the existing Skyfall head and then use said screw to attach the skyfall head with your choice of faceplate.

    The quality is amazing, not a bubble in sight on mine and the plastic is seems super durable, the attention to detail is also amazing and really REALLY makes a non essential repaint not only essential but down right awesome!.

    I may be gushing a bit but this is the kind of thing that really puts the fun back into collecting, for $35 I have not only transformed my existing toy but now have a character I really enjoyed from G2.

    Good stuff Renderform, long may it continue!

    I second everything that you said in your review Red Leader. This kit turns a simple repaint into a very special figure and puts a lot of fun into the hobby. Thanks again Venksta.

    Step 1: Get Skyfall
    Step 2: Get Empyrean Espionage Kit
    Step 3: ?
    Step 4: Profit.

    Seriously, I need to get in on this while Venksta still has kits available.

    I think there is already a thread for this somewhere Red.

    Either way, it's an amazing piece. Really turns Skyfall from dud to stud.

    Am I the only one whose Skyfall head doesn't quite attached perfectly? When I screw it together, the top fits well, but the bottom portion doesn't hold perfectly so I'm always afraid when I transform him since his mask just out enough to get caught when it gets pulled into the chest (which would likely make it worse or break him). Looks awesome though

    It took me a couple tries, but the easiest way I found to get it on was to align the head before putting it on the post, then slowly opening the bottom just enough to fit it on the peg. Screwed together perfect that time.

    As I've stated in other threads, this set is awesome, and if there's any doubt over whether or not you need it; stop and buy it. Seriously. It takes I mold that I personally already loved and makes it about 100 times more awesome.

    Opened mine today and stuck it on my Uni Skyfall so he can join the rest of his G2 gang. Just looks so awesome. Already got my name down for a Darkwind kit.

    I recently got my RF-002B set and the solicitations said he would come w/ the helmet and 2 visors (which I got). I also had 3 small guns in the bag! A gray gun and yellow and clear red gun (latter 2 are the same mold).

    Love it, love it, love it. I can't believe the difference it makes on the Skyfall figure.
