    3. Very cool idea Domuya, this should be fun!

      Question, you have two options for each event head. One with head only ($73USD) and one with head + torso ($125USD). Is the event only open to those who buy the head with the torso, or is it also open to those who buy just the head?

      Thanks!

      Edit: my post was deleted so I'm adding it here so everyone can see what Azraelita was talking about (I thought it was a post that had broad interest and would be helpful to others, not just myself.)

       
    4. tiffanyjbt: I was wondering that too, but when you read the despription iside the link you see that the cheaper head is only available for customers from China.
      I know Chinese pay very high duties on export, so the second head (125$) might include these duties.

      And the heads are only sold with torso (which is as freebie), Ive already asked that question in the discussion thread :sweat
