    Hi everyone! I was looking at the Henkei Smokescreen today and lamenting the fact that the head doesn't look as cool as the one on Binaltech Smokescreen. I really thought Alt/Binaltech did justice to the character's G1 look with the helmet molding, which also helped to distinguish Smokescreen from Silverstreak and Prowl.

    I was wondering if anyone had ever attempted to shrink down and remold the Alternators Smokescreen head for use on the classics/henkei body, and what the possible difficulties of such a maneuver might be.

    I put together a quick digibash just to help illustrate what I was considering.

    Sorry... is this in the wrong place? Maybe it should have been posted in fan art, I see a lot of digibashes there.

    Seriously... 30 views and no replies? Are you guys just being shy or are you all promptly stealing my great idea? ;P

    Well, i dont recall anyone trying to cast smaller versions of Alt Heads

    Im pretty sure with some epoxy or even styrene, you could mod the existing head without major issues :)

    Hey, maybe the silence says it all... I figured one of the experts around here who recasts heads all the time would jump at the change, but then I realized that making a scaled-down version is probably out of the scope of ability of your average garage mold maker. Is there a way to make a cast out of some shrinky-dink like material which shrinks as it dries so you end up with a scaled-down recast?

    You know, like "some organizations" are attempting to do with "some toys" that resemble a Walther P-38? :p
