    For that price, I am totally willing to give that a go. Also, no need to worry about mismatched paint or ugly headsculpts I don't want.

    Edit - just ordered two kits. I will give a review as soon as I get them in hand and installed.

    It's so simple too and also helps fill in the hollow back area. It also helps that it doesn't cost half of the figure.

    I went ahead and grabbed a couple of sets even though I didn't really mind the figures as they were. I figured at that price though, might as well get them.

    I dunno...I think the stock head is one of the worst aspects of this figure. However, $7 vs $40...I think I can probably stick with the ugly stock head.

    Definitely want to see an in-hand review or two, but the price is on point!

    I'd also love to see the review.

    Is the shipping to Europe (Poland) possible?

    Oh I'm not the biggest fan of the stock head either, but it's better than paying $40 and getting Duckface McKissyLips.

    Ordered a couple of sets earlier before they went on back order. The hip kibble was my only complaint so if this will address that for 7.00 a figure I'll give it a shot. I wish there were images from straight forward and the back though. Kind of looks like there may be an unsightly hinge replacing the hip panel. Even if that is the case it's better than the panel and for the price worth the risk.

    They lips are unfortunate, but I think it looks more like Ironhide than Longface McNarrowGourd. But for $40, yeah, I guess it should be pretty much perfect.

    I can't tell if the wheels go his back or just to the sides. Maybe a rear shot would help.

    I like the shape of the helmet on the replacement head but those lips...

    This looks great, but it looks like it will prevent waist articulation?

    If it does I'm willing to trade off articulation for no more hip kibble.

    Already got my shipping notice. Looks like I'll be in for a fun week! Working on Ironhide and Ratchet, and MP Thrust and BC Trailbreaker on the way.
