Granted, Fansproject did the job of engineering this wonderful and complicated upgrade, and all this guy did was face.... I like it. Sorry FP, but this looks good. Not taking anything away from FP, they did a bang up job, but the face has always been a sore spot for me. Might be this....

Call me an idiot but I'm struggling to see the point in this. As far as I can tell the only difference is that the eyes are slightly smaller. Is it meant to cover the Classics/Henkei/RTS Hot Rod head more so there isn't that chin/neck thing going on?

I dont see nuthing wrong with the original....

Granted...if they made Hot Rod twin pistols to combine to form Rodimus gun or sumthing with this new head then i will buy it.

Most of the face is pretty different, a little more G1 looking.

I like this new face. If it's well-painted and cheap I might buy it.

"Nngh!!! Well... since you... put it that way..."

I do actually like this new face myself now. If the quality is good and they get the colours right then I'll bite. I imagine it won't be that expensive.

This is one upgrade I think needed to be made. The original face is okay, but this...this is what it should've looked like.

If it's made easily available, I shall pick it up. If I have to go through hoops to get it, then I shall pass.

I agree. The face on Protector should have looked more like this upgrade to begin with.

hey this face looks pretty good. If it covers the chin of classics Rodimus and the paint job is good I might get it.

I'll be honest... I never liked G1 Rodimus Prime's face, which is why I'm more than fine with the fact that FP didn't replicate it. Still, people will be picky and want this thing anyway to make their protectors MORE GEEWUN, but to me it's a waste of plastic.

Next.

Even left unpainted, this one looks way better. If it's reasonably priced, it's as good as bought.

Hey, a replacement face for a FP product that doesn't look like crap!

It looks like it might cover up Hot Rod's face as well...

definatally worth buying if the price is right. Sometimes Fansproject goes a little to far left field to be original as with Protectors head. Time for a G1 upgrade.
