    Which do you think looks better? My brother and I are contemplating ordering the set, though have gotten into a bit of a verbal scuffle over who gets which head, which made me wonder which one the fandom prefered.

    Also, if you have any horror stories about the set, please share ^_^

    The cigar is better! Either order 2 sets, or the oldest gets the cig. There have been stories of the cigars breaking, but if you handle with care, you'll be good.

    I use the no Cygar one most of the time.

    I wish iGear made more better looking heads for pre-existing molds. They're the only thing they make that I like.

    I think either Igear head looks fine, the regular head looks terrible IMO.

    I use the cygar head, just like the fiction attached to it. the non cygar head is going to a friend who can't stand the original head.

    Definitely cygar. He's got a A-Team Col. Hannibal thing going with it, and I dig his portrayal in All Hail Megatron.

    On a side note, BBTS is selling Generations Kup on clearance for $6. Awesome price for anyone who hasn't picked up this figure yet. I'm just waiting on iGear's Kup heads preorder to come in now.

    Being a fan of the 86 movie and never having seen the comic books, I thought I'd like the one without before I bought it. Then I bought it and once I got it, I was hooked. It really "makes" the figure. I've had no issues with mine at all and I've transformed him quite a bit. It doesn't hit during transformation, if you do it right. I even took the brightest orange paint I had and dottend the end with a needle brush to simulate it burning and it looks great.

    Get the Cy-Gar head since it makes Kup a bad-ass elderly TF.

    Both heads are awesome but I use the cygar one. The original Hasbro head is truly awful.

    Now iGear just need to make new Perceptor heads!

    Cygar for sure. Just put a drop of super glue on each side and you don't have to worry anymore about it.

    And that's only if it wasn't glued properly in the first place.

    Mine was rock solid right out of the box.

    Same here. I still need to grab the ehobby version for that one too. Didn't think I needed it, but after a side-by-side, it is a must.

    To the OP, cigar by far. You said you are the older brother, are you the tougher brother? Who gets the bigger steak when you BBQ. The dominant alpha male wins.

    Show some brotherly love and let your younger bro have the Cy-gar head.

















    Then laugh at him when said Cy-gar break off from the head......

    Very true. Mine, however, seemed like it was just set with no adhesive at all. When I put it on for the first time, I lost the cygar in his body! Lol.
