    NO LONGER AVAILABLE HERE. May be bought on ebay.

    Several months ago, there was a bit of an uproar when I proposed recasting the Anime Spike head that has previously been copied by Rabid Squirrel (the long desired fan made Hirofumi head). I have waited to see what others would offer and what changes they would make to the kit, but considering that no progress is being made I have decided to do my own.

    Here we have the unfinished product. It is near finished, needing only to be finely sanded to a smooth finish and to be attached to the Spike body. This is my "prototype" so to speak, and it is made using a high quality ko Spike body and ko Black Zarak arms/legs (I have these and Shuffler available for sale in my sig). The Hirofumi-designed head has been sanded smooth on the back and fitted to a sanded down ko Spike face (this was done so that the official size read-out tabs could be used). Although Hirofumi's design had "ears," I have decided that the arms serve that role quite well in headmaster mode.

    So without further ado, here are the pics of the work in progress. Let me know what you think, and I may send the face off for reproduction. I do not have to repro the bodies, as I believe my ko headmaster source will be able to provide me Spikes with black arms and legs! This will have an original quality body and rivets! Also, the face will be painted silver to match the anime.

    This is going to happen. I am looking at an initial run of 20 pieces. Each will be of the highest quality, with the look and feel of a real headmaster. I will be posting them in the Radicons marketplace when they are available (most likely 4-6 weeks). Hirofumi's old masterpiece is about to see its first high quality release!

    I am still only doing 20 to start, and I will do more when those sell through. More news when they are done!

    Great work, but for me it suffers from the same problem as the original. Cerebros is a big head, the toy should have had a "New Headmaster" sized head. Great work though.

    I have decided that all offerings of this head will have the painted details applied prior to shipping. Unpainted versions are no longer being offered.
