    It's not a matter of putting them back in, as entirely retooling the figures / creating new pieces for such.

    As the photo you linked to isn't a variation of the original tooling but a prototype that was heavily altered before being finalized on and then having the molds created from what we've been getting since 1984.

    So for all intents in purposes, those parts never existed on the figures released.

    You can always open it for display, then put it back in the box once you get Giant.

    I think it looks cool. If we didn't get the two 3rd party ones last year, I would get this one.

    Ahh, okay. That'll be a pretty sharp setup, actually.

    some 3rd party/custom-maker needs to sell one like this for Green Giant

    to replace the derpy head. And while they're at it, paint the back of the head (Hook's foot) green and use clear red for the visor.

    This looks great... I was thinking of getting the old Encore 20 and JB-07 but now I'm not sure.

    Does anyone have any in-hand photos of how the colours on the new Encore 20A match up with the upgrades from CD or JB?

    Basically I like the new 20A but want the upgrades to go with it. Any recommendations welcome
