    That works really well! You could probably figure a way to do Dino/Mirage out of that mold too.

    Wouldn't a Shapeways head cost more than a Knockout figure?
    I do like the idea of this, but... I don't think that TFP head quite matches Bayverse aesthetic.
    Almost...

    That depends on how you're obtaining the Knockout. Knockout has long since disappeared from stores so having a non-readily-available access to his head makes doing some of these Knockout mods difficult.

    I just picked up mine yesterday.

    When you posted your custom, I thought it was brilliant and that it definitely passes for Knockout but having Stinger in hand with the head on him standing next to RiD Prime really hammers home just how much Stinger looks like a split image of Knockout, right down to the arms transformation. I mean, you'd swear that Stinger could've originally been meant to be a movieverse Knockout it's so close (which given that Hound was originally Bulkhead until they changed it, it's not that far fetched).

    This really fits more than the original to me for some reason.

    I don't think it's the chest more than it is the slender frame and body proportions. But no, your mind's not in the gutter (tho' I quite possibly hate you now since you gave me a reason to buy this figure yet *again*...lol).

    It really does. The head and the figure looks more like it belongs.

    Every single time I pick up my Stinger, I see Knockout. But I may pick up another to repaint him as Wasp...

    Oh that is fantastic- and as a bonus, Stinger's head works even better for what I planned to do with Crocout. (A custom of Iguanus. I wanted to do a few Beast Wars customs out of Beast Hunters toys.) Thanks for doing this and sharing it, man!

    Knockout needs a Shapeways Head.

    Damn it, and here I thought I'd only need to buy a Stinger! Now I have to hunt down a Croc-Out? This looks so much better.

    Pretty darn clever indeed!

    How ironic, I literally just threw up a headless Stinger in my sales thread this morning. Talk about coincidence.
    First come first serve!
