There isn't a big enough difference & I do not dislike the original enough to bite on this.

It appears the previously revealed replacement face for FansProject's Protector by DR. WU will also include an alternate visored face. Transformers Galaxy Hong Kong Fans Group have updated their facebook page with the following images of the alternate face plate.

In my opinion, sometimes it can be the unnecessary additions which make an item necessary.

Show me this in color on the figure, add some sort of additional weapon/accessory, and price it around $12 and I'm in.

I didn't care about the normal face, but but the visored face is compelling.

Funny. To me, it doesn't look like a visor. It looks more like an eye mask. Does Protector have trouble sleeping? :lol:

I could definitely do without, too. The bummer is it'll probably drive the set price up and I couldn't care less about this one.

From what I've read, if this is coming paired with the first face, alot of people will be half disappointed, one way or another.

Here's a novel idea, why don't they actually post a photo of this set ON PROTECTOR?!? These faces looks fine but it's annoying that they just don't go ahead and show them to us ON THE FIGURE.

No use for the one with the visor, but I do like the one on the left. Hmm.

I don't have any use for either. The face is practically the same as Protector. The only differences I see are the nose being wider, not tapering and the mouth. I dunno, these guys seem to be doing a bunch of WTF projects that I have no real interest in.

I agree. Showing us a faceplate that isn't attached to the helmet is pretty pointless.

I'll 3rd that ^^. Looking at comparisons between the two, the new face does appear to be significantly better, but I can't really determine how 'necessary' it is without seeing it in use. And then probably equally as important, price. It could look amazing, but if it's not reasonably priced, forget it. How about $12 shipped? iGear was able to do that for two entire heads, a case for them, and a mini screwdriver...seems reasonable for a couple face plates to be no more expensive.

So does this upgrade just consist of the two new faceplates? I thought there was going to be a new helmet as well.

A face plate...your kidding, right ??? Well, I guess thats one way to avoid mixing the right shade of red plastic to match Protector. Better be under 10 bucks.

Dr. Wu, return to the 36 Chambers and bring back something better.
