    If I may suggest, I looked at all the heads on Shapeways and found one that I think may serve well: Boosted Midfielder's Head For CW Truck. It has the same general Medix design, and should fit the ball-joint. Anyway, just a thought.

    holy shit its perfect!

    i've looked through shapeways 100 times and i didnt notice this one, what the fuck.

    Thank youuuuuuuuu

    don't have the money at the moment but i'm ABSOLUTELY ordering this.

    I MIGHT modify it a bit, naimly adding the round things on his forehead and "ears" and maybe his long helmet nose, but only if i KNOW i can do it with no issues.

    If you haven't ordered the head yet, it's always worth asking the creator to see if they can modify the model for you.

    Just wondering how you seperated the torso? I tried to do it on a spare first aid and the waist won't split. Is there a pin I've missed or is it glued together?

    Thanks in advance :)

    I can help with that. There is a pin on the inside, so just continue gently pulling/prying the halfs apart. It'll come apart if you just keep on it.
