Shapeways Modeled Head for Beast Hunters Voyager OPTIMUS PRIME

Here are some pictures of the head I completed to be used as a replacement head for the Transformers Prime: Beast Hunters Optimus Prime voyager class figure. I also created a new neck joint with a ball joint that will replace the existing one. Test models should be in hand in 2 weeks. If all works out, they will be available on Shapeways.

Edit: Just got the head and neck in and they came out great! The neck joint is a bit tight, but that is a good thing. The head was about 5% to small, so I scaled it up and updated the model on Shapeways. The neck joint is a direct replacement of the factory version, but now has a ball joint! Please let me now what you think!!

A) does it still fit for transformation?

B) how do you recommend removing the existing joint?

C) when can I get one?!?

Awesome work.

Great questions! The neck joint is a VERY easy one to remove. I will do a short video tutorial showing how this weekend. It is a simple as popping out a single pin.

This is sweet!
2 questions
1. Would this neck joint fit FE Prime's head
2. Is the frosted ultra detail the best finish to go with?

Thanks

Very nice! Will you be doing an Optimus with proper face (mouth Guard removed), something like Dr. Wu's FE head? Wouldn't mind having one of those too
