    The new head is gorgeous. Hopefully the eyes won't look dead when off.

    From what I can tell they might have two heads (purely speculation). They had two heads at the last toy show this guy was at (plus all the previous prototype pics had painted eyes) which leads me to believe we may very well get two heads. Another thing that supports this idea is that in these pics he clearly has a clip on head/neck, which I would see no reason for other than alternate heads.

    i was holding off on preorder until i got a confirmation on size, having it be slightly larger than Mp-10 is GREAT and this figure looks GREAT so i preordered it.

    i wonder if the stand will be compatible with other bots so i could use it to feature them at times. i have lots of primes i'd like to cycle through...

    Yeah.. For a quality sculpt, transformation and size.. He's definitely in the $178-$200 worth the price range.

    I hop
    That's why he's a steal at $160, so I hope TFSource is just on crack.

    Love it, but I doubt it'll leave much room for posing, which is why I hope we can replace the neck with just the head, allowing for dynamic poses.

    Ngl, that's actually one of my favorite poses. I'm a huge fan of that machine gun with bipod

    Considering how much they seem to have improved the figure, the wait is worth it. Not gonna lie though...wish it was in my hands now!

    TF Source is definitely on crack. ShowZ is a much better place to buy, especially for those of us not in the U.S.

    Wow he's lookin GREAT!
    But why would they include a second head? Like "here's the real headsculpt and then here's a bonus slightly crappier one"? I'd understand if it maybe had a different paint job or something, but why have another head included just because they already sculpted it?

    Maybe one head has more poseability at the detriment to the sculpt?

    Like the old "no neck" head would likely offer far better articulation when there's less neck kibble in the way right?...A thought

    Well if you look at the post I was quoting, the purpose would be to have painted eyes. Not a different head, different paints, nothing. Just painted eyes.
