    I cannot stand the binaltech Arcee head. I saw an excellent head on a custom in the gallery that was put on a Mirage body, but can not figure what it came from.

    Anyone have any ideas or perhaps a cast of the G1 statue/bust that might work?


    Thanks.

    There's an oversized bootleg Energon Arcee that pops up now and again -- some people have been using that head (repainted obviously) in place of the original head, but ... so far I haven't seen a really good solution to the problem of Deceptidrag Arcee...

    In the magazine Toy Fare (issue 128, April '08) they showed how to do an Arcee custom using a Roadbots 1:18 Celica. The head that was used was from a Mazinger AD-1901 Aflodai (Aphrodite) by Fewture Models. That's coppied word for word since I have no idea what figure they're talking about, but I do believe the guy who did it's name is Kyle Robinson. He has a website (Kylerobinsoncustoms.com) Sorry, I can't insert the link because I'm on my PS3. Anyways, the head used isn't quite perfect imo, but it's pretty close. Hope this helps

    I wonder why the likes of justitoys haven't done an Arcee head. Seems like a fairly obvious thing to do, particularly now there's an official BT Arcee.

    I've tried PMing sculptbot a couple of times, but no answer, so an alternative would be good.

    did you read Sculptbot's thread here in RGD saying why he's been so non-responsive?
