    well im looking to do a classics runamuck and runabout from the wheeljack, tracks mold

    i decided i dont like the orange from the tf club versions and if i dont like it why spend the money when i can make them for much less

    already have the bodies done and modded them out a little bit

    but i dont know what heads to use, i was staring intently at IDW infiltration series to get some good close up pics to see what i could use and nothing is really coming to mind

    so this is a thread for suggestions share your thoughts guys

    Try the heads off the ROTF Brawn and Fallback molds?

    This is a bit out there, but the black robot's head (i never could tell them apart) had twin side vulcans reminiscent of Gundam units. First one that came to mind was 1/144 HG Destiny Gundam's head.

    Alternatively, maybe you could commission someone to scratch build/design one for you.

    frenzy_rumble used a modified cast of the G1 Trailbreaker head for his a couple of years ago. Turned out pretty good. Also, the Cybertron Runamuck head is decent.

    i think i can take a stab at it im just trying to get a good base to start off of

    i have a extra red alert head which kinda has the helmet similar to theirs, so i have been thinking about messing with it to see what i can do

    but i wanted to check here to see if there was another good base i can go off of.

    Yes, he does. Just search for it in Radicons. It's from 2009 I believe.

    think i found it, was it on a tf crossover venom car?

    that might be a bit big for the wheeljack and tracks bodies

    i may press forward with the red alrert head and see what i can do on a small scale

    i think if you modded the rts preceptor head it might look good. just add a mouth plate and use to apoxi sculpt or whatever you use to box out the helmet a bit

    In the same idea as what Javaco suggested, Junkheap or Wreck Gar could be used just modding a face plate on to either of those.

    ok i have a plan that is going to be a mash of multiple heads

    possible parts of perceptor and using scourges head as the base its good and blocky nd the top can be sanded flat so i can build the bill of the helmet on

    thanks guys i should be reporting some progress soon

    and i intend to cast these parts sop i can have some light piping (i dont kno why but i am currently stuck on light piping for custom heads)


    of course this is all assuming that everything will fit on tracks/wheeljack

    Personally, I'd use a Universe Sideswipe head with scratchbuilt faceplates and/or helmet parts.
