I always thought the paint job they gave the regular head worked well for carrying on the look of the G1 version, but this head is sooo much better.

I sincerely wish that they had made a Hydra redeco of this in addition to Darkwing/d.

When will your order page be up again? I'd like to grab one of the Mach Red's before they sell out.

That figure is still readily available at many TRU's collecting dust on the shelf.

I think it looks really excellent! I didn't think I needed this until I saw it, now I need it! :APPLAUSE:

Let me clarify 'it'. I need the upgrade set. Didn't think I needed the set because of the nicely done paint apps to the original head.

I am now considering grabbing one off the dusty TRU shelf, to have another to mod with this.

I knew you meant the set man. I was just agreeing with you about the figure warming shelves at some TRU if people were still in need of Darkwind.

I know you did, I was clarifying for others, because after re-reading it could sound like I wanted someone to nab one for me... #-o
