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. These are only prototypes, and the final sculpts may be different.

Just pre-ordered mine. I don't have a problem with the factory Generations head. But for only $12 it'd be crazy not to go for it. It would appear to make the figure a damn-site cooler.

Nice heads. Personally I'll be using the Cygar head and give 5 bucks to the first person that notices I have a cigar smoking Transformer.

March cannot come soon enough. These head molds make this figure for me. IDW Kup FTW.

If anyone wants the cygar-less head and lives around Vancouver, i'll probably sell it for 5 bucks, so PM me.

I would liked a more unique expression for his other head, but I'm still liking it. The official head strikes me more like the movie Kup as a wise old man and mentor. These are more like the IGN comics, with an aged badass vibe.

lol, I like the box and how it fits in the back of the truck. Both heads look good, but are they going to come unpainted? :???:

That is pretty cool. I wonder if it was planned that way or just a coincidence? I'm confident the final product will be molded and painted in the correct colors.

Do I have to buy this from I-Gear, or will BBTS carry it?

So far iGear is only place with a pre-order. BBTS has never listed a preorder for their MP Prime heads so I doubt they carry these either. I would prefer to deal with BBTS or TFsource in most situations, but in this case you can't really beat the deal iGear has going.

C'est la vie. At least it was PayPal. I was a bit worried I'd have to fork a credit card over to them.

Ordered!

Since the box fits into the back, I'm going to attempt to use a similar insulation, or the one included, as well as any gun accessories I have to place them in there, like a weapons container. Glad that the igear logo isn't terribly lame in any way, and can pass for a munitions supplier.

I've decided that I'm going to use the original head for a custom Crystal Head Kup.

It'll be a prop made of Legos but still, I wanna have something like that sitting on my shelf lookin' all crazy with his ugly cygar-less face. :P
