The second run was done almost entirely in molded plastic. The guns were molded in their respective colors, same with the pads and shoulder cannons. RA's face was still painted if I'm not mistaken. Those are the only ways to know off hand, they also said they made the shoulder cannon clips more durable...but I will call shenanigans on that since mine were already stretched out when I opened the box. THAT I can fix with some clear nail polish.

Weapon: Concussion Rifle
the original version is painted. the second version is cast in red plastic so its easy to tell when you take a closer look. the original version was from the first preorder and once those sold out another preorder went up for the second version which i believe is still available almost everywhere.
Looking for:
Black Big Convoy
Botcon Redux Spark (Pyro)

for Trade:
MISB FE Arcee
MISB RTS G2 Laser Prime
MISB Generation WFC Megatron

:shock:
Wow, never knew!
I appear to have the red molded Red Alert head, doesnt seem to be painted apart from his face in silver?
I would assume (not seeing the painted red version) that the second red plastic run may be the better looking version so as to match the red plastic of Red alerts neck and shoulders, as mine appear to be?
I own the Classics versions of both Red Alert and Sideswipe, so I cant reference the Henkei versions? :-?

Mine look super duper awesome in molded red plastic and the shoulder rocket launcher is perfect with no stress marks despite popping it on and off once or twice!
Same goes for Sideswipes shoulder launcher.
Both guns are molded in respective coloured plastics and match extremely well without fault.

In fact I would have to say this set overall has been one of the best 3rd party add-ons I have ever bought to date! :grin:

Seems I have the same set as Robot Mel and I too have no issues with the head. Can you take a picture of the issue? I popped the head on with little force required and it fits reasonably snug.

AMR2, do you have the painted version or the molded plastic version; If its the painted one, could this be where the problem lies/lays? [I am Grammartron!] ;)

I have the molded version. I'll be posting pics in a bit so hopefully that can help you guys understand the issue better.
