    this was a request commission that I'm offering as a cast

    The head will be cast with red plastic, in a 2part mold so you just have to glue it together over the existing balljoint or use the screw that comes in the red alert head.

    When I get a red alert you will be able to see him in his G1 toon glory

    I'm offering him with face painted for $7 shipped to US, UK, and Canada (others will get a quote) , pm me for details on payment.

    UPDATE!

    still have to clean up the head but it's pretty good for a first cast, the problem with casting something that wasn't made my a computer is that it show ALL imperfections. but this is much better than my 1st attempt.

    Looks pretty cool i might take you up on a mold of that and a Sideswipe if you do one. Molded in red is a perfect idea but I can paint the face, would that knock the price down at all?

    thanks he's being cast as we speak

    it fits fine, it would be kinda silly to offer it, if it didn't work like the original.

    hopefully I can find a red alert to get some decent pics

    UPDATE!

    still a bit of smoothing before I recast, but it's much better than some of my first attempts.

    very nice! How about making a new head for WFC Optimus Prime, make a head that looks like Orion Pax. I've been wanting to add Orion to my collection and WFC Prime is ripe for the picking.

    I really dig how this turned out, Toby. I liked the first you did, but I also thought the "ears" should have been just a bit smaller. Now that you've fixed that and bulked up the top a bit, it really looks great! You know me, I'll end up building my own head for mine and this will serve as some nice inspiration, man.

    Now share up that leg tutorial!

    It looks pretty promising. I'm eager to see some close ups of the final-final product. (clearly you have made improvements between the close ups you've shown, and what you say is almost the final product).

    I'm hopeful it comes out well. If it does, I'd get one for sideswipe, and red alert.

    Good first attempt. I saw that you noted that you're not 100% finished so I'll keep checking back. This does seem a bit rough around the edges but you make some awesome customs so I'm sure you will work out the kinks :thumb
