    Agreed that the head is 5000% better than the original. I hope they offer a set of the new sculpt for sale separately, as they mentioned.

    Interesting as the new paint job is, I am not sure it's enough to buy another copy of a character i already own in the other two styles. Maybe Superator if they make it that far, but even that one is doubtful.

    Concur. I’d have to sell one to justify this one. Metallic would have to go since they are almost similar.

    They’re beautiful. I want them, but don’t need them. I wonder what crazy prices they will go for...

    I'm still waiting for a fulfillment of a Guttur pre-order. Hopefully they can make that happen before moving forward with these.

    I like the weathering level on the face but it’s a bit overdone on the tail. Otherwise I really prefer this paint scheme to the metallic and chrome (based on pictures as I’ve owned none of them).

    Looks like no solid red head. Hopefully they include it along with the flame effects. @foxracing Are you getting this set since you're the Dinobot Historian here in the forums? Lol

    Cut corners may be over harsh, I'd wager they have just gotten better sculpting with experience. Pretty sure Fanstoys facesculpts used to be alot poorer when they started.

    This new facesculpt is brilliant though definitely interested in an upgrade pack for my Chrome.

    Well, the first head was far more expensive for them: light up feature, interchangeable faces and shades... They probably thought that a new head could be cheaper AND prettier, and they were right.
    A good sculpt is better than all the bells and whistles

    Looks nice but I think I’ll stick with my Metallic and Chrome version, sure the head is nice but I’m not buying another set.

    on the facebook post, gigapower said "We hope to continue with reissues when there is enough demand from retailers" what i want to know is, how does that work. pre-orders? or is it just people badgering their favorite stores to get more stuff in? or something else? because i need a chrome grassor and i'll take any upgrade kit that includes chrome or silver thigh replacements

    Junkbot, you might try the modifications that I did to fix the standing stability for your Gaudenter. Here is the link to my original post. GigaPower HQ-05 Gaudenter (MP Swoop)

    And what's your point? None of these companies are running a charity.

    Total pass. For some reason, the Dinobots do not look good when painted with battle damaged deco.

    He is available for preorder at tfs-express as well. Shipment for me is about $190. Not bad. I want the new head. I did get a message from them saying they are alive, but just very slow. Might have had some issues. I just hope Showz can get me my replacement feet.
