    This makes me so unbelievably happy! Now I'm really glad I have the upgrade kit preordered. That Wheeljack head makes me so damn happy and I would have just been happy with the version from the film that just had the head fins for 2 seconds. Then, throwing in Arcee's blasters and extra, painted arm blades for Bumblebee makes this the perfect RotB upgrade kit. It is a shame that you actually have to break the original head for it be attached though.

    Plus those fillers for the rear of the alt-mode that come with the transfer set. I'd rather have had them than the head. They could also repaint his cannons into the correct colour.

    Some more info about the Wheeljack head from FB:
    "We are adding a new head sculpt for SS-108 WHEELJACK in DK-53! To address the dissatisfaction some fans had with the official head sculpt, we decided to provide an all-new design. However, please note that since the official head sculpt is glued in place, replacing it requires damaging the original structure's peg. If you don't want to break the peg, the new head sculpt cannot be installed. This decision is left up to the collectors' discretion. (The new head sculpt can be fully stored.)"

    They should have just made it a full head, WTF. It's not much more plastic, and wouldn't make us pry the original head apart.

    I don't have Pablo yet, but can you remove his head from the neck non-destuctively? Because if you can simply pop it off the neck, I'd really have rathered they gave us a new back of the head for the new face. But if you had to separate the head anyway to safely remove it, then it's just as well, I suppose.

    Agree, I don't understand either. I will wisely wait for a video before a possible purchase but I am not a fan of “break to replace”

    Thanks, but I did see that. I realized that the two halves of the head are glued together. I just didn't know if "the official head sculpt is glued in place" meant simply that you need to break the glue to separate the halves to add the new front half, or if it meant the head cannot even be removed from the neck at all without splitting it.

    I'm assuming it's the latter or they'd just give us a whole new head and save us the trouble of having to separate it. I just didn't know for sure.

    it pops off the ball joint pretty easily

    that's referring to the face, not the head. if the head was glued in place it wouldn't be able to articulate

    Man I've got this set pre ordered but I'm starting to think if I need it? I only have Wheeljack and Arcee(I have PF BeetleBee but I've been thinking of getting Rotb Bee) and I really have no interest in Mirage. At this point I'm only interested in the wheeljack face and possibly the second blaster for Bee.

    Very tempted to just cancel and see if anyone wants just sell/get rid of the Jackie face
