    I've said it before and I'll say it again: I don't like 'em.

    The idea is a nice one, but these blatantly look like they were recast from some cheap poundshop wannabe Transformer and modified a bit.

    On top of which, they look absolutely ridiculous when you actually put them onto the 'bot. Thing is, when you put these heads over the seats, you're moving the head up above the windshield. But you're not moving the arms up with them. As a result, it looks like the shoulders are coming out of their abdomens. Look at the fourth pic in the auction to see what I mean.

    If you do decide to make something like this, Rattrap, I'd strongly suggest you find a way to put the heads behind the windshields, rather than above them - perhaps taking some inspiration from the Rerolabels upgrade stickers.

    Ebay:
    Hi there, for all of you who did like the sets, more of them have been listed, I know some of you may find the item out of proportions due to the arm location, but if you check grimlock head is totally out of proportion, too way back! and is in fact one of the figures most TFans like., I am trying to find a way to move the arms up with no meaningful modification to the toys themselves but it is complicated and maybe unpractical.

    I am also sculpting a smaller head for those of you who like the WWI style.

    thanks for your time!

    I'm actually also currently sculpting a WWI style behind the windshield head... I was going to offer it as a resin kit if there was interest.

    I think they are awesome, fair enough the arms are lowdown but come on what looks better ? a headless windshield gobot or this
