    This is for a commissioned G1 styled Kup for Lotussouljah. I had made a Kup for Rumble919 a while back but didn't want to just recycle that head for this project. Going for the All Hail Megatron Look here. Made from a cast of the old head I made, with a modded Cyclonus face. I should be completing this one soon, so stay tuned. also, the head will be available to anyone interested.

    Pretty cool. Curious to see how the custom itself turns out.

    Also... do you have a order page for all the casts you have to offer? I mean lets see... we got a FP Bruticus set, soon-to-be 4th Party Protector upgrade, this head, and I'm sure a few other things I can't recall off the top of my head atm...

    That's awesome, Spoonman! Now, when you were casting this, did you make two casts of the face and then alter one of the face molds to become the backpart of the head? I'm planning on doing the same thing with my G1 Kup's head mold.

    Thank you sir!

    Me too! I've been working on it forever. The whole project I mean. I wanted to stay away from other versions like Tom Servos (which I had the honor of seeing in person) and then of course the RTS version. Thanks man!

    Haha, thanks Crow. That means a lot.

    And I still have a bit to do. Like a lot to do, so that's good news. Thanks!

    Cool man, thanks! The original head I did was made from 2 G1 Kup heads, styrene and a Sharpie cap. I just replaced the face, slimmed the entire head down and shortened it some.

    It should be good......stay tuned

    I am in the process of compiling all the molds and accessories I have made throughout the years. I did start a page on Facebook people can check out. Customs By Spoonman

    You know it! Want one?

    Thanks! I did like iGears version but that head would have been too small to use on this mold. The original head was made for Rumble619s Kup which is Lambo-based.

    Thanks bro!

    That's exactly how I did it. made a mold of the G1 head and sandwiched a piece of styrene between 2 casts of it. That way the diameter was rounder. I filled in the back and sculpted the face.

    I'd say I'm "not bad".

    That's always an option.

    Thanks!

    Thanks! I can do a tutorial at some point.

    Yep! Effing Hot Shot haha. I wanted to match the look in the All Hail Megatron art and his were just perfect. Also, they allowed for a TON of articulation.

    Sorry man, I didn't mean to make it that good. I can do worse next time I swear! Haha, thanks bud.
