    Update: UPDATE: Thanks so much everyone for all your support and positive feedback. It has brought me a ton of pleasure seeing all of you use my heads to enjoy your Megatron even more! Unfortunately I have become simply too busy with work and other things to make these anymore. Thanks again!



    All, I have now started making some casts for classics/henkei Megatron's head cast from a G2 Hero Megatron head with a ball joint added. The original thread with my custom is here:http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/404370-classics-megatron-head-update.html. The best thing about this upgrade is that you never have to actually alter your original figure; just pop the original head off, replace with the new head and viola, you have a much more G1 looking Megatron (head wise at least :)  ).

    I made a couple of alterations on my personal copy by removing the posts on each cheek and the extra detail on the side of the head but then I wasn't sure if I missed them or not... Therefore I am giving you options! Look at the pics below to decide which head you'd like A is unaltered G2 Megs, and D is as G1 as that head can be made. I am selling unpainted, Classics color matched, and Henkei color matched heads. I don't have the United version of the figure yet but if you look at the post by C16 there are some pictures there of the color matching I did for him based off online pics. I am looking to buy one at a reasonable price, so if you have a spare maybe we can work something out and I can then also match him. :p 

    Options A and B

    Options C and D

    Painted Example (Option D-H)

    Ordering and Pricing:

    Payment through PayPal as gift payments only please. Just send me a PM letting me know which version you want using the following system:

    Cast option: A, B, C, or D
    Color: NP(No paint), C (Classics), H (Henkei), U (United)

    So write B-NP if you'd like an unpainted version of head B.

    This will just make it easier for me to keep track of orders.

    Pricing:
    Unpainted heads are $15 each
    Painted heads are $23 each

    Shipping and handling:
    $2 within the continental US
    $3 to Canada
    $4 to UK and Europe
    $5 to Asia

    Timing
    I will send out a batch of heads once a week around the end of the week. Depending on when you get your order in and whether or not I already have a head like that ready it may take about 1-2 weeks before I can shop yours out. I'm doing this on the side next to my day job so I just want to be upfront that I may run into some delays but if I do I will keep you informed and get your heads to you as soon as possible.

    Thanks!

    OOOH, looking good, with lots of potential for other customs!
    So this guy would be approx. deluxe sized, I imagine?

    There's a good chance you'd match United Megatron's deco if your simply reversed the Henkei scheme, i.e., silver helmet and grey face.

    I've got a United head that I could send you if you want it to help match up the colours?

    Yeah, I already suggested to him the color reversal, since United Megatron's silver is pretty standard. Same shade as my silver Shapie.

    He's actually voyager sized. The head would probably look too big on a deluxe actually.


    Thanks for the suggestions guys: looking at the pic below, I think the color reversal should work. I'll do it for those of you that want me to try, and as soon as I get pictures back confirming that it matches I'll put it up as an option.

    While the face on United is white rather than the milky white of the Henkeu's helmet, it looks like the whitish/gray paint you used on your Henkei head looks to match up decent enough. So I don't know if you want to offer "reversed" colors, or just "United colors" with the white face.

    Actually I'll use the silver from the face, and a slightly off white for the face. I'll basically try to match that pic with the Henkei as a reference to help me get the shade of white right.

    C does not have the vents on the side of his head that A does and it's the same difference between B and D.

    I was actually planning on doing red eyes on those. I'll double check and make sure the other people wanting it matched to classics Megs are good with that.
