    ok, so the basic cc face doesn't scream sg op to me. but this op plate from the kit isn't mean enough either. so, how can i make this meaner?

    Slant the eyes and add a grooved faceplate (Gundam style).

    It's a little outside of the box, but if you painted the eyes black, he's look flat out dead evil. :ev:

    yeah, the black does seem off. the gray may look better. i just want it to be different than a regular op face.

    i sent a pic to allen yesterday where i had trimmed down the eyes and drew grimlock like teeth on the sides.

    i'm going to strip all the paint off it, sand it, and clean it up. i may try lime green eyes.

    That head there is from the Big Convoy (Beast Wars Neo JPN)figure. We had him released state-side in the Universe line a few years ago. I think he was sold as Nemesis Prime in the black coloring. If you're looking for those pikes on his feet I believe those are from Warhammer 40k miniatures.

    i know what the head is, but thanks, i'm trying to find who made the custom because he made the head available in his shapeways store. i had saved the pics but don't remember who it was. i have both nemisis and regular big convoys, i don't want to use their head when i can just buy one.
