    Does any one have an idea what scale the head of this Arcee mini bust is compared to Alternators heads? I was thinking of buying one from ebay and having wheeljack or someone on our site to cast a head for me to attach it to the new Arcee BT-21. Is this possible? Can it be done?

    Yeah I've seen Sculpt-bots head of Arcee many times and I love his work. But not to knock anything against it but I was hoping to get something a little more cleaner and accurate to G1 Arcee.

    From what I can tell, the sloppyness usually comes from the paint-job that's applied. A bit of sanding and some careful paint on your part ought to make for a decent head. *nod*

    I'm not sure about the statue, but going through Sculpt-bot or VP would be a great solution for ya; they both do KILLER work in this area!

    Whatever you decide, have fun making your "BT Arcee"! Personally, my BT won't stay as "Arcee" for long :)

    The head of your Miester Arcee might work for what I am wanting. Hopefully he still has the cast or what he used to make it. This also might save me some money on buying the Arcee statue. I'll try and get in touch with Viagra Prime before I make a decesion on the matter.

    I was just talking to my buddy about this same exact idea lol.. I Would love to be able to get a copy of the arcee statue head. If i owned the statue i would cast it myself with some sculpy or something to make the mold. I love Scultbots arcee head but the shape is a bit off. If anyone ever copies this statues head i would buy one in a heartbeat for my custom Corvette Arcee

    Interestingly I had this exact same idea...3 years ago when Alt Windcharger was released (or 2 years ago? don't remember exactly). I bought the Arcee statue for the purpose of casting the head to make an Alt Arcee out of Windcharger. Unfortunately, the head is a bit too small for Alts, even for skinny Windcharger.

    I've got that statue, and i'd say that it's just a touch too small.

    It's a long shot, but If you can get hold og an Iron Kid (I think it's called Eon Kid in the US) Violet action figure, then its head is absolutely perfect for an Alt Arcee.

    I'm at work at the moment so I'm a bit short of time, but I'm sure you could google it or something.

    I got hold of mine in spain....haven't seen them anywhere else though.

    All my 'bashes are back at my parents house so I don't have the actual
    figure to hand, but here is a picture of the character. I've looked on the
    internet for a supplier I can't find one. If you could find a supplier
    you would make a killing..... I'm thinkng of going to spain to buy a load
    more! http://www.ironkid.tv/galerias_imgs/personaje_violet_01.jpg
