    Had about 6 folks asking me to do a Alternator Arcee head (hence the new thread.) And this is the result. Pics are of the initial sculpt. Once Apoxie Sculpt cures I will be able to sand and even out some of the parts that shouldn't be rounded. Neck will be narrowed. The head is approximately the size of Alt Mirage's, and will be molded and cast here soon. Enjoy, comments and crits always welcome!

    Ratchet was one (much llike Arcee) that has been sculpted and resculpted about 5 times. Rest assured once I get a sculpt that I am really happy with, I will make him available.

    Sweet. I've always liked the heads that you've done. Just curious, but, are there any gallery's of past head sculpts that you've done. I might be needing a headsculpt in the near future, lol.

    Wow, that looks amazing!

    wouldn't you want to take a shot at sculpting a Spike or Sparkplug figure? In scale with G1? non articulated? or any other human characters from TF? or accs. Like a nice Allspark?

    That's cool..But forgive me, since I know nothing of sculpting and all..But, I notice a lot of scuplting on here, or scratch build stuff etc, it kinda all looks..Lumpy. Some just look like they're made out of playdough even when finished. Where as the store stuff, is all fine tuned, hard lines, rounded perfectly, straight line panel work etc..Will this eventually look just like a finished store brand head, or does it stay imperfect like that...How do the HASBRO sculptors and mold makers get them perfect? I just don't know how it's all done, and was curious.

    Wow..You're good. Usually there are tools available to the public at large as well that can help recreate certain effects as well. I'm asking for information on the subject. And I'm hoping a person with experience with this stuff will answer it.
