    When Hasbro released Big Daddy, he was just a repaint of downshift. Originally Big Daddy was an Autobot Micromaster who transformed into a vintage muscle car. the TFTM versions face was way off, so heres a little head replacement and some flaming paint jobs for a more accurate Big Daddy

    I was thinking it was Jetfire's head.

    He looks great! Awesome flames.

    Sweet, I thought it was Astrotrain's head based on a previous custom! I like this a lot and the flames are bang on (minus the green, personal preference). How did you do yours, it looks damn good!

    I'm impress with the flame paint job on him as well as the head used for Big Daddy. Very cool indeed.

    I may have to commission you to help me with a Downshift/Big Daddy project.
    I'm working on a General Lee inspired version that will serve as an Autobot officer (literally, a general). In searching for a suitable head, I decided upon Movie Longarm (the tow truck)'s head. I'd need some help with a.) getting his ball-jointed head on "Gen. Autobahn Lee", and b.) Doing Redline's neck fix (I'll supply the TFW2005 thread for this later), so that the neck plate rises high enough to allow neck movement.
    I do have one alternate option for a head. Since my original concept was for the General to be a Headmaster, I could supply a second neck base to be smoothed out and have rectangular holes added for a Headmaster figure's head and meter pegs to slide in. My head choice is a custom Headmaster (Jr.) made from Lug (Hosehead) and Brisko (Fangry).
    If you have any better suggestions for heads that will fit, please share/PM them to me.

    -- Cybertronian.
