    I took Catch22's advice and picked up a High Score to use the head on Beachcomber and have to say its a definite improvment, at least to me.

    You can go here, to see what he looked like before

    I'm not sure how Beachcomberesque it is, but it looks better than the catcher's mask he was wearing before.

    I tried to delete some of my pictures in the original thread so I could upload these, but it wouldn't let me delete pictures I had uploaded. I wasn't sure if this is on purpose, so PK, SQ7, or Redline, if you are reading this, just giving you a heads up.

    I say not too bad of a custom, it kinda reminds me of a blue spartan from the Halo franchise. Other than that its cool.

    Much better head for Beachcomber than the one that came with Landmine. Great idea, damn good work.

    Looks great!

    I just picked up Landmine this weekend. My favorite Deluxe so far.

    Definitely looks more Beachcomber-ish to me now. I'm always impressed with how you're able to do such small details with those clumsy, giant Lenny-hands of yours.

    Of Mice and Men reference FTW!

    Yeah, what you don't see is me breaking parts and tools only to have to fix them later. I'm swear the living in embodiment of Herman Munster at times.



    Thanks for the compliments everyone.

    You nailed it. Killer stuff

    That head looks like it'll also make a nice Warpath

    that looks fantastic. The head is just a teeny bit small, but it still looks great. The paintjob especially looks really clean

    That head is a huge improvement over the catchers mask w/o a doubt. The High Score head reminds me of the Predator's helmet, which I think is a good way to go with this mold.

    that's pretty funny. I'm not going to repaint him, but I've got a longview head on my landmine. I was almost gonna take landmine back, but then thought I'd see what he was like with a different head. sure enough, it fit pretty well (just needed to make the head hole a bit smaller) and now I love the dude.
