    An easy upgrade that makes Camshaft a little more faithful. The original:

    And now my upgrade using an extra Prime head, painted appropriately. I like this mold, but this makes me like the repaint, and the homage, a little more.

    what do you all think?

    Full body shot? Looks really cool but maybe a tad large.

    Here you go! And the head is actually very close to the same size as Prowl's .

    That head looks great on that figure. Just about perfect IMO.

    That head does look great on that body, thought the head still looks too "Prime".

    Pretty sweet, but in order to seal the deal and really make him look like G1 Camshaft, I think you should file off the "ears"/antennae. They distract and make him look too "Primey". Your call, though, of course!

    Nice idea, but I agree it still looks too much like Prime.

    Yeah, it's hard for me to disassociate that head from Prime. But looking at the original Camshaft's head, I'm thinking an Alt Wheeljack head with the ears shaved off might be just about perfect. The shape is almost identical!

    Hye that looks great! I agree shave the antenna off and maybe add a little bit more Alternator detail on there to distinguis it from the Prime head.

    Very nice! Camshaft really needed a different head.

    Yeah, we got 5 characters with practically the same head. Camshaft did need something different.

    I think I'll swap this on mine too. Maybe I'll use my Nemesis Prime head. It looks about the same size as Camshaft's head, can I assume he will still transform with this one?

    That's pretty rad. It certainly looks more like the original camshaft now.

    Nice nod to the original. I'd pick him up with that head instead of Prowl's.
