Thanks to our tenacious site member El Duque for updating us on the latest news on third party toymaker iGear's deluxe Kup head upgrade, now called Kup01. According to the update, the set will include not one, but two heads for your deluxe RTS/United Kup figure: one with the "cygar" and one without. The set is expected to be released in mid-March (listed as March 20th) and will cost 12.99 which includes free shipping. While we still haven't see the final, colored versions of these heads, iGear has added a few new teaser images of the prototype to their site which have been mirrored below.

Ordered. I was hoping to get it sooner and through BBTS though. I ordered the Kup/Scourge/Thundercracker/Wheeljack wave through them and it would've been nice to get it all in the same box at the same time!

Same here, but I've ordered directly from iGear before and everything worked out fine. You just can't beat $12.00 for two custom heads and free shipping.

This is how you appropriately price upgrades.

Are you paying attention yet, CrazyDevy?

These are so ordered.

Wow, shipping is even free to Canada, call me a happy camper :KREMZEEK: Yeah, these people know how to do it right. I'm surprised it comes with both heads too, that's even better! I hope the paint apps are up to snuff too, but it's not a big deal if they're not. I ordered mine the second I saw the posting. I hope they do more add-ons like this in the future.

Now that I've seen the iGear version I don't really like the factory head at all. Not that it's bad or anything, and if it were the only game in town I would be fine with it. I'm just diggin' the IDW style the custom has goin on.

The cygar head is cool and all, but I'm not paying almost as much as I paid for Kup himself for both heads when I see no point in a second cygar-less head. Aside from the cygar, there's nothing wrong with the generations head. I can make my own out of polymer clay or something. Problem solved and I save 12 bucks.

is the free shipping worldwide? because that might sell it to me. I'm assuming it's $12 US, not $12 Canadian, or Primus forbid, Australian?

I reckon so - I just completed checkout to a European address and there was no extra charge. I believe they're based in China rather than the US.

Off topic, should we be sending dollars to people who can't spell dollars!? ('US dollors')

It's too cheap NOT to preorder!! I'll definitely be using the cygar look.

iGear has updated their Facebook page and pre-order page with images of both heads in their Kup 01 set.
The second cygar-less head appears to be identical to the first with the exception the of the mouth being reversed. Theses are only prototypes, and the final sculpts may be different.
