    Hello. I made this custom head to justify buying a Classics Cliffjumper. Now I'm offering it to anyone interested in getting one. You need to use the original Classics BB or CJ eyes for this head. Right now I'm offering only 1 per customer at US$10 shipped within the lower 48 states. I don't use Paypal and am only accepting payment via USPS(Post Office) money orders at this time. Please PM me if you're interested.


    I am only offering this item and have no interest in being commissioned to do any custom work. Sorry.

    I've made a custom Alt/BT Sideswipe head and the Cliffjumper head. I'm probably going to make a Brawn head for my Alt Rollbar and then be done with it. It's too time consuming.

    Ah, that's a definite shame. The TF fandom could use more people like you right about now, but you're the one doing the hard work of sculpting and producing these things, not us. Such is life.

    I will keep you mind if I find myself a Cliffjumper, which I'm not exactly in a rush to buy. Plus, there's the whole do-it-yourself need with the paints.

    Those are awesome head sculpts. I'd buy one or two if I didn't have to paint them myself. I've never painted anything and I don't want to mess it up. :(

    You're too kind. I have a lot of idea's for TF custom heads but with my limited time, I chose only the one's that I REALLY want.

    For anyone interested, I'm now taking pre-orders for my custom Alt/BT Sideswipe head. Here's the link.

    wow man. I've seen people do custom-sculpted heads, but they always looked kinda sloppy and off-balance. yours look perfect! amazing work.

    yeah, i concur, they look sweet, but a lack of being painted already hurts my chances of buying. what did you make the head out of? is it something soft, or is it hard like the head he comes with?

    Thank you. Yeah, I'm somewhat of a perfectionist when it comes to this type of work. I worked on this until I was satisfied that it looked smooth and symmetrical.


    I don't believe in reinventing the wheel, so I try to keep it simple. The original prototype is made out of a destroyed Classics Bumblebee head and Tamiya epoxy putty. The version I'm selling in the pictures are recasted resin copies of the original. They are not soft.

    I'd definitely buy one if I wasnt the one responsible for painting it.

    wow guys, it's really REALLY easy to paint something like this. just use acrylic model paint and you can get it off with water if you mess up. this is too cool to pass up. a brush and a bottle of red and of silver paint will cost you a total of $3 at walmart. think about it.

    Yeah, it would be if I was trying to run a business. So far, I've never needed Paypal and it's a little overkill to get Paypal just for this. If not for a friend of mine convincing me to do this, only 2 people would have these.

    Pity you don't send out of the US, and use Paypal. I'd get one for when I find a Cliffjumper, because that's some beautiful work there.
