there is. he's referring to REPRO heads though, not sculpted heads. Sculptbot makes his own heads that people use to turn X mold into Y character... what he's referring to here is someone making casts of LEGIT heads to repair old toys and such I think.

Yeah, that's what I meant. Repro heads from actual Hasbro/Takara transformers. I know Sculpbot has already reproed a few (in addition to his custom stuff) but more doesn't hurt. It would help not only to repair old toys but for custom toys if you want to repaint something but use a different head.

And due to a large amount of requests I will attempt Ultra Magnus Launchers...havn't decided yet if they will be functional.

Put me on the list of people interested in the magnus launchers, whether they're functional or not. Any timeline on when they may be available? I know they aren't 100% coming, but I'd like to see whether or not I should wait or try to pick up a vintage set if they're way far out. I love what you're doing here. It really helps us fans who are short on cash right now out. Thanks a lot!

Nice! We have the missiles, could we get the launcher? It doesn't even have to work, just needs to look nice, heheh. Any chance of getting the guns that fire Ultra Magnus' missiles? I bet you can see where this is going. I (and I'm sure others) would like to use them for the city commander upgrade set.

Added a few more items.

Also by popular demand I will soon be offering Functional UM Launchers. They are currently being molded.

Also I would like to offer custon HM heads and Springer Blades. But I have been unable to find the proper size and type of rivets used. If anyone has any ideas or knows what kind they are contact me Please.

http://www.brokenarrowtoys.com/cart/

He has basically listed his parts with obscure names to try to avoid any infringement - sort of like how the KO WST Dinobots are called things like Flamethrower.
I actually think Darkov is ok here. Alyosha was casting parts that Hasbro was still making and selling, as well as a few BotCon parts. Hasbro no longer makes these parts and I doubt they would have a big problem with someone doing it so long as it is within that boundary. Now should that boundary be crossed, not that I am suggesting or advocating it of course, then the name change and such should be considered.

Then again, I'm no copyright lawyer or anything so definitely look into it and C.Y.A.

I'll more than likely be contacting you for some parts, maybe even some trading since I might have some weapons you don't have to repro. Just about every one of my G1 figures are complete with weapons so if you name it I more than likely have it.

just a FYI to you all, I just got in the mail some WJ wings, tinted light blue. They are fantastic and perfect. They will work great on a Universe WJ custom I have going. A+ to these molds.
