    Kinda a load of horse shit... Should have come with the figure to begin with. Now, it comes with a figure I have no interest in. They better give us a way of getting the parts via after sale support

    Guessing this is normal for some 3P to do? Unlike how the new head was done with the TE Prime? How good are the XTB Stunticons?

    Yes, it is. And it annoys me every time.

    By all accounts, XTB Stunticons are good enough. A lot of people like them. I am not one of them. Just kinda crappy that replacement parts for a stand alone figure are coming with a set figure.

    That is unfortunate, but guess easier to do that have just the face being made and trying to sell them to all the vendors that they sold them to in the past. Plus gets them another sale. Not that it helps us who just want the face, but I can understand their plan.

    Thanks for the information.

    You can also ask people who are getting Dragstrip and don't have Skids - some probably are going to be willing to give it up. Perhaps for a few bucks, perhaps for a similar small item, maybe just for postage cost.

    True, this forum has a lot of helpful folk. I should have thought of that instead of looking at spending more money and buying the XTB Stunticons. Of course this forum has also been good at helping me spend more money than I thought.

    Might also just try to hit up xtb support and see if they'll get you one by itself. I asked for a replacement Andras face because mine was chipped and they gave me two different faces (there were alternate faces available in the swarm set). Just had to pay shipping. Granted, that was a case of replacing a damaged part but the fact that they gave me two was very generous so I dunno, they might hook you up.

    Or just ask @ibot. Hey, ibot, is there any way for people with savant to get the new face without buying overheat?

    Was about to say this, I'm pretty certain, he would possibly comply to this. long as S+H is paid by the customer.

    Wow that new face is much better! Not just the mouth but the spacing between the eyes too.
