I was getting the kit anyway but I got the Go Better kit with the fillers already. No problem though since this is lazy if we're being honest. No toe fillers and no hand fillers. Not that the figure needs them but the other kit came with them lol. The neck and head parts of the Go Better kits are a bit much and kind of annoying but I won't be needing them once the DNA kit comes in though.

Looks pretty good. Glad I picked up an Awakening Primal. 

The only real thing is though is that I hate those hands and how they "hold" the swords. It's just way too loose for my liking as nothing ports in and the hands barely grip the hilts as there's too little friction to get a firm grasp. At least that gun adapter looks to fit in his hands securely. I would like to have seen new hands that were 5mm compatible with new swords to go with them that tab into the storage slots better as the stock swords fall out easily. Basically, this figure likes to not hang onto the swords well no matter where you put them.

The new heads look good. The added neck articulation is nice as well.

Shame there's no fillers though. The gaps on the bottom of the feet are pretty egregious. Especially on a figure that doesn't have them anywhere else.

New missiles of some sort would've been cool too. Ones that you could leave in for transformation. The stock missiles need to be taken out when not using them. Maybe just new shoulder launchers entirely since they're easy to replace. 

I didn't start typing my comment with any real negatives in mind but as I was thinking about what to comment on more, I thought of things that could/would have made an already good kit better.
