    Hey everyone, I would like to show you what we have been working at GCI. It is a replacement head for TFC's Nemean figure. It will reuse the original screws that came with the stock head. The back half and eyes will be translucent. It will also come with a replacement base piece for the neck to give the new head a ball joint for articulation.

    Special Thanks to ServO for all your help!

    Yay! I will say though that the neck piece needs to be a perfect fit, since it is also the part that locks down the chest.

    Good looking design, Nemean badly needs this on his neck. I think the visor and faceplate look a little narrow for the size of the head though.

    Thanks! Sorry - if it did fit Leo Dux it would be just a coincident. Although, we could update the model with Leo Dux ball joint if there is enough interest ;) 

    We have made every effort to make sure it is a drop in replacement. We'll have to see when the proto gets here if anything needs to change.

    Ya, it is a tough balance to proportion things to everyone's tastes. We went back and forth on quite a few features that were re-proportioned until we settled on this.

    I think a blatant copy of leo dux's head would have made all interested happy.

    I like the effort, but the face seems, diminutive compared to the rest of the head/helmut.

    Well, I'm currently using the Leo Dux head just attached to the swivel peg, so the option of being able to attach this OR Leo Dux AND have a ball joint would be supreme…

    Is the design final?
    I would very much want to support a project like this, particularly if you were to make replacement heads for the whole Ares crew. But as it is, I don't get much of a Razorclaw vibe from this. Giving it Razorclaws signature chevron visor would help a lot, as would shortening the 'ears' a bit.

    This version is pretty much done. Depending on interest will dictate more versions.

    Ok thanks, best of luck with your project! It would be interesting to see replacement heads for the others as well :)

    I'm definitely in on this. I love Nemean as a stand alone figure, but his default head is pretty tragic, lol

    There is a bit of delay, but we're still planning on releasing it in the future.
