    Hey folks, thanks to the success of the Claws and Talons, GCI is proud to offer up our next project - G1 Style-ish custom head for Rex.

    I am saddened, but also pleased at the same time about this next part. Unfortunately, Megatron has decided to take a hiatus from casting and as such, the mantle has been passed on to fellow Japanese board member Froggy124. Froggy has much casting experience and his cast's are also top notch high quality resin, and that is why he was chosen (and humbly accepted) to undertake this and some future projects.

    With that said, this G1 Style Head will be cast in all black resin, and be completely painted with lacquers. You can specify the color of the visor/eye you want, in either black, metallic black, metallic red, metallic blue, silver, yellow, neon orange or deep red (color shown in the pics below). The head comes completely assembled and just pops on the existing balljoint. IMPORTANT NOTE: The head does not fit inside Leo's chest and must be removed to transform him into bot or lion mode.

    These are pics of the prototypes, but the final product will look the same.

    Now the nitty gritty. The G1 Style Head will not start production until October 31 and start shipping Mid Nov. Orders will have to be prepaid and we will stop taking orders for these Nov 11.

    Price for US customers is $24.99 shipped, or add the head to any other order for $22.99 shipped.

    To cover international shipping:

    Canada, add $6 to your order.

    Europe, add $7 to your order.

    Anywhere else in the world add $9 to your order.

    To place an order simply send payment via paypal (no family or friends gift please, we will gladly cover the fees) to wpeniche@comcast.net (wpeniche at comcast dot net) with "G1 Style Rex Head" and color of visor in the title or notes, please be as specific as possible.

    I don't like charging up front for products, but this helps keep everyone's cost down by not making GCI cast extra parts that never get paid for.

    Orders will start shipping out mid Nov to the customers on a first come first served basis.

    Will the new head still fit in bot/beast modes?

    Ah sorry, left that part out, fixed it now, but no it becomes a parts-former. This head is really for those who never really plan on display Leo in bot or lion mode.

    I was just wishing I had more clearance for the default Rex head to come out, having to remove it may be for the better anyway.

    I would assume people will spread out between the visor colors, so as you have them ready could you provide images with the color choices? I know I want one, but my imagination isn't good enough to picture them on my own. Thanks.

    Do you have the metallic red for your visor? Also I am not sure what color of the visor I should get. Black or Metallic red? What would everyone recommend?

    From your first images I thought you were rocking the aurora film for the visor, nice to see it's painted!
    I still chuckle over you telling me you were thinking of ditching the ab and comp.. :p

    I will get the different color pics over the next few days, since I still don't have metallic red or extra heads.

    You still have plenty of time to order, so I say just wait until you see all the colors.

    No way man, that film is expensive it would make the price per head about $30! Also, I seem to be like the only person on these boards who likes it.

    And yeh, did get rid of the AB and comp, but bought them again.

    Is the head hollow? Maybe I can fit a light in it, if I do get it, LOL :) 

    Are all the pieces on the side of the face and corners of the forehead in red the same material as the visor, i.e. see-through, or just painted?

    I'll see what I can do, since I can't find my old cannons for Leo.

    Sorry it's not hollow, three solid lumps of resin. And the visor is just painted.

    If its the antennae that makes the head not fit, would it be possible to move just the horns and tuck the head in leodux?

    That is nice. I wish the head itself can be transformed somehow to a certain extend to avoid part-forming. Oh well!
