    So I've posed before on here asking if anyone had made a cast of the head from the IPOD Convoy and so far that was a bust. Well, I just happened to get the actual toy under the tree this Christmas so now my query has changed.
    Is there any of our Radicons out there (who are good at making casts) that would like to make a cast of it? So far I haven't seen anyone offering casts of this head for sale. I'd be willing to supply the head for casting (and whatever the caster decides to do with tho$e mold$ i$ up to them.) in exchange for a few of the casts for me to use in my own customs.
    Any Takers should PM me.

    is the head on a neck ball? If so it'd be cool to seperatly mold both the head and the part its connected to.

    The head is on a neckball. It's a two piece mold, but I couldn't care less if it was casted in a solid piece.

    Hmmmmm... I too would be interested in a cast of both seperate parts. It would be really good for my G1 prime bash I'm working on.

    Hi ! one question, how easy is it to put these onto 1) The original G1 prime and 2) Classics prime as I'm thinking of having 2 of them. Cheers.

    I'm not sure about the Classics Prime...but the G1 Prime is a really easy mod. You basically just need to increase the diameter of the post hole on the bottom of the head. I included a quick example(this item has not been clean-up not a good example of finished product)

    I did that in about 5min.

    Hope that helps:)

    I think the head will be compatible with a classics voyager prime if thats the question. I did a quick size comparison before sending the original to Darkov for casting and it looked like a go to me.
