    I got those same stacks, and they make a world of difference! Put them on!

    If resale value is important, you shouldn't open him at all. :)

    I have seen MIB or Loose 20th Prime's go for more than others on eBay, if they are modded with long stacks. Just an observation I have noticed. Just make sure you don't throw away the original stacks.

    I recently bought the same ones from A3U and they look AWESOME. They make a huge difference in my opinion. It was like getting a new 20th Prime all over again. Putting them on is easy as long as you have the small screwdriver needed.

    I went ahead and put them on...but I also used paint thinner to remove the "battle damage". I don't plan on selling it ever, and it looks great.

    i put them on too, they are subtle, but when you step back and take a look, he looks so much better its freakin awesome.

    did anyone manage to fix the springs as well? i gave up after a few nanoseconds, after it flew out and into the ether. but the way they're fitted they hold ok anyways.

    the only gripe i have, is that when you turn his arm at the bicep, the stacks get pushed out from the bottom. small issue, but it has to be said.

    Has anybody every installed these stacks from marksprojects?

    http://marksprojects.com/smokestacks.htm

    You don't have to remove the existing stacks, just add these on. No screw to lose!

    Curious for feedback, they look pretty nice to me, and only 8 bucks shipped.

    Like others here... I recommend putting them on too. Prime just looked neutered with the short stacks... Now I gotta try the paint thinner thing to remove the battle damage.
