    Yes. I paid the guy to make a few extras to maximise the mold.
    But it's not cheap because recasting materials in Singapore are rare and expensive
    in small quantities and talented recasters are more so.

    It's US$15 each shipped from singapore if anyone wants it.
    Sorry, I can't do anything about the price.

    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

    Hi everyone,

    The last of the myclone arcee heads have been mailed out today.

    Sorry I couldn't reply everybody individually by PM.
    My PM's are a mess.

    There are a few myclone arcee heads left from a few guys who
    ordered and never paid for them. Thankfully, not many are like that.
    So if anyone still wants one, please let me know.

    The molds are worn out and will be retired for good.

    Thanks for participating in this and happy kitbashing, everybody!

    I got mine in today! Thanks a lot. It's a very good cast. Some minor imperfections which will disappear while prepping it for paint. Now I can start my Arcee custom! jeej!

    BTW I picked one of these up from Aurascope and it arrived and I'm VERY pleased with it.. Can't wait to finally decide what I want to put it on.

    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?
