    'Sup y'all,

    I've decided to sculpt some custom TF heads since my custom Arcee project got WAY too complicated and there's not much I can do about it with a heavy work schedule :p 

    Here's my 1st 'victim', Henkei Skyfire. Personally I hate the helmet concept Don gave to the character, so I decided to sculpt him a new head based on the G1 cartoon look. I'm also working on a new Classics Sideswipe/Red Alert head :)

    Man that's pretty sweet. Can't wait to see how you Sideswipe turns out! Are you gonna be taking commissions or is it too early to tell? I'd hate to start a requests thread for you but I'd go for a couple custom heads if they were classics style

    So far, your sculpt looks better than the original design for the toy. Can't wait to see the Sideswipe/Red Alert head. Thats one head design I don't like from the Classics 2.0. I know you'll easily do a better job. :thumb

    I really like the design you've made for this sculpt. Also, the sculpt itself is executed well. Great job! :thumb

    I love the Classics Jetfire helmet, but this looks really nice. I would definitely buy one.

    Hey, thanks for the feedback guys :D 
    I may sell these if I manage to make copies with no QC issues. Here's Sideswipe (the 2nd pic is a quick digibash I did). I'm using a wax clay to model these, Sideswipe's face was made with a different type of clay.

    Your Jetfire head looks great! I don't "Hate" Don's head design, but I think its execution is flawed. Unmasked head too small, helmet too big. Also, the helmet's guns are too far from the head, so that the elegant Valkyrie-esque head-guns in the book become weird...antenna...things in the toy.

    This looks great, I certainly hope you make some casts and offer them. This is a great road to head down, especially since so many of the Classics figs, especially the repaints, could benefit so much from just a new head mold.

    Awesome, I don't suppose you have any plans for Top Spin & Twin Twist heads for the Ice Cream Twins;)
