    So is the ring kit at ShowZ for Pumpkin or Cell? Looking at the pics it shows both in the description. I was trying to buy it last week but for some reason adding the kit to my cart generated an automatic $34 in shipping when everything I was buying had free shipping.

    They’ll fit either, but are coloured for the original release Cell. Pumpkin is a slightly darker orange, which has no kits or uprgrades released yet.

    I figured fit would be unchanged but I didn't know if the color wasn't that different and they were selling it for either. I was also thinking if the color is very different I would color match it myself if getting a proper set is far off.

    I think you could safely wait for a correctly coloured larger ring set for pumpkin since the original Cell coloured bigger rings didn’t take too long. I dunno, just my guess though.

    Such an impressive figure. I haven't had the chance to mess with his spikes or other accessories yet. But even in this straight-out-of-the-box configuration he exudes POWER. I was torn between getting Cell or Pumpkin, but in the end Cell won out because he was in stock locally.

    I just put my order in. Been wanting a Unicron, didn't wanna pay $1400 for the HasLab version (I was not collecting when it was being kick-started), and I didn't have the money for the Cell version. Now I have and I can't wait to get him! Those colors look really good!

    Seeing this guy in Energon or Armada colors would be pretty rad! I was thinking about getting the pumpkin version but I just don't like it enough.

    I can wait on the ring kit but what I really want are those wing tips! I can't believe how such a small addition makes a big difference! The only thing I envy of the Haslab version is size. If Cell/Pumpkin were that big it would be so amazing!

    A reviewer recently posted a picture of Cell and FT-16M Sovereign. They don't look bad at all next to each other despite Cell being much smaller than Haslab.

    Just a quick edit I made in my free time. Don’t ask me why I did it, it just came to my mind but I don’t think it looks too bad(of course the images aren’t mine)

    Saw this review. Maybe I can paint that face lighter, but other than that looks good

    Not sure how the head is put together, but maybe there's a way to swap the faces between the two? The gray may not be an exact match but it'd lighten it up for sure.

    I wonder if it's possible to buy a head/wing box on its own for that purpose.

    Good idea. The face on the original looks to be a good color

    For any Pumpkin buyers who may need a hand, this guys stop motion videos are a work of art and make transforming the complex stuff so much easier as provides a great visual medium, he also transforms it with the head in place.

    Honestly I can’t decide between which looks best. For me the blue on the cell kinda contrast with the orange while completing it but the gray on pumpkin makes it looks like there is supposed to be another colour to complete the trio even tho it’s accurate. I can’t say it looks bad but there just something odd about it, but I guess it’s always cool to have options.
