    Pretty cool, personally would have liked to see a clearer chest piece for Grimlock too. Also hope the sword is red on the final version.

    Knowing DNA, they will take feedback from fans and include some additional bonus part. Who knows we may get a mind controlling device, an apron + tray and a crown

    interesting, not sure if this is worth it to me since I've got the old takara wheelie from titans return, but nice that the kit includes a full wheelie figure

    I got the Nonnef kit so I'm good on the sword and teeth being replaced. That said I dig the new dino arms and feet fillers. I do hope the panels that cover up the arm gap are better than the Nonnef kit, they kept coming unscrewed on mine. I'm not sure if I'm going to swap out the neck or not

    I think this is the first upgrade kit I've ever seen that just offers a replacement for the entire figure.

    "Yes this is an upgrade kit, it upgrades your original SS86 wheelie figure to the trash"

    I'd honestly get it just for wheelie itself.

    It looks to be a great upgrade! I'll be in it for the Grimlock pieces. :)

    Any idea how the size on this Wheelie compares to the Titans return figure? Also just noticed that the wheels are molded to the arms/legs, so he won't actually roll. Bit of a lame compromise on this guy.

    I have the nonnef kit but i'm definitely getting this for the Wheelie and the better arm covers.

    Wish the sword was Orange or Red instead of grey. But other than that it looks amazing

    Now this is the upgrade I’ve been waiting for. I wonder if they’re already working on a transformable Exosuit Daniel?

    Comment on their Facebook post - they're reasonably receptive to fan comments

    I got the Nonnef kit too and I'm pretty satisfied with it but I don't use the arm panels for that exact reason. Thankfully, this set uses a different system. Screws into place and uses a different hinge to open so we're not twisting the screw every time. I'm very tempted by this for the Wheelie and better arm covers, although I prefer my Nonnef sword and chest piece. I wonder if I could get this and sell off the extra pieces lol

    Damn. Regretting getting the Nonnef kit now, they even made an add-on to make an actual transforming Wheelie.
