So it's basically Giant's second head, but with light up eyes? Kinda neat.

So how are the paint apps on Dr. Wu's final products? These look so-so but hoping they're hand painted prototypes.

Meh, I'm content with Giant's original head.

Sorry, Dr. Wu. Gonna pass.

Weapon: Null-Ray Rifle
Do all Devastator figures need a light-up visor? This product looks ok, but I'm going to pass. If Dr. Wu would make a replacement head for Marvel's Cyclops figures, I'd be all over that!

Motto: "No matter where you go, there you are."
At this point I am content with his included head(s) and see no need for a replacement. I do have a question, though, that may be of interest to those who are more interested in this. Is it going to integrate well with Hook's (Mobile Crane's) other modes? Does this head, which needs interior room taken up by a power source and light source, still have the ability to collapse the face inside for the head to be (oh so subtly) stored on Hook as an individual?

I can live with the large black block on Hook's alt mode, but not if it also had an obvious face on it! And an un-collapsed head would also make a horrible foot for Hook's robot mode. In the hypothetical world where I did want this head, it would be a deal breaker if it was not collapsable. And popping Wu's head off and one of the originals back on for when not using the gestalt mode is also a hypothetical deal breaker. If I am replacing a part, it better be a replacement usable for all modes.

I would get this and paint the black on his forehead silver to make it really G-1.

I don't want to pain the original heads or I would have done it already....

Some seller off of Ebay, but it doesn't matter who I ordered from because the fact of the matter is this: If the product isn't strong enough to make the trip then it wasn't worth ordering to begin with.

They can't all be winners.
