    That looks like a really nice clean cast!

    I wouldn't worry about the price, that's actually a very fair price, ESPECIALLY considering your shipping it from Singapore!

    I have an original MyClone Arcee, or else I'd probably get one :)  I'd say this is probably about 1/2 the price the MyClone Arcee toys usually go for, so it's a great deal, thank you for making such a great item available to the community.

    hey destrongerlupus, I tried drilling and cutting the original myclone ultra magnus before,
    I guess I'm quite adverse to working on PVC, because it's soft and rubbery.
    The resin casts seem to be firmer when I drill and cut, maybe it's just me.

    I think this head would look neato on an Animated Arcee :)

    I actually really like using PVC parts when they're available, the soft material gives you a lot of flexibility and makes for natural friction-joints.

    Not only have I already drilled out my MyClone Arcee head and popped it on my Animated Arcee, I actually did a mini-tutorial about it for the Kidbash Blog

    kidbash - Blog - Girls areawesome!

    Totally! Mine was a super-quicky job, and I'd really like to rework her gazelle neck still, but it looks pretty good:

    These casts should work just as well :)

    Yeah, I notice in the photo she already has a neck post.
    So maybe just cut off the neck stump and drill a socket for the neck ball joint.
    Great work!

    This is how it looks like after (poor) editing in MS Paint

    Wanted to give this a bump to show something instead of making a new thread. I had to move so i couldn't do the custom until these days, but I swapped from going the Animated Blurr route and thought better to put this head on animated deluxe arcee. I may still paint both molds at the same time, and the head wil be able to alternate between the two.

    i think thats about the right height/neck length, no?
