    Problem is, i cant cast things, dont have the heads i need casted, and cant sclupt to save my life. It really puts me in quite a dilemma. SO, i thought i'd put in a request for a commision.

    Heres what i need sclupted, all deluxe size:

    Jazz to replace a classics prowl (though if anyone could cast the shattered glass jazz head, that would be perfect instead)
    Swindle to replace movie landmine
    Brawl(g1) to replace movie brawl.

    and heres what i need cast:
    x2 cybertron runamuck
    movie longarm
    energon towline

    PM me if you can help.

    Just a suggestion... but if you look around, you may be able to find some of the figures you need casts from second hand, for as much as it would cost to have the heads cast... that would mean heads AND spare parts. :)

    yep. ebay TF lots are the way to go. I sometimes spend $20 and get about 5-10 TFs, of which I will use 3 heads, still much cheaper than having custom made.

    You should PM sculpt bot. he's a wiz at making heads.

    yeah, sculpt bot was my first inclination, but he seems to be awol.

    And sadly, ebay will only help with the figures i need cast, not sculpted. Unless you guys have any ideas for jazz, brawl, and swindle

    Definitely try and find the heads on ebay first. Most custom headsculpts sell for around $50(not including molding and casting).

    Just give Sculpt-bot some time.....send him a nice pm asking him about what he has, and he will get back to you. I know he has had some problems with his knee as of lately, but he'll be around.

    I recommend him....never had any problems with SB.

    2nd on sculptbot, does an awesome job. If you're looking to put a jazz head on classics prowl, you might consider a robot heroes jazz head. It's a close fit, if a little small, but might do the trick for you.

    Not AWOL, just recovering from surgery. Spent a good chunk of today getting caught up on my PM's (haven't been able to sit at the computer for very long.) I am waiting on a shipment of molding compound and then I will finally get my deluxe sized Brawl and Swindle heads molded and cast. Jazz is available now however, and pictured in my head thread.

    Just an aside too: I charge $25 for a deluxe sized custom head commission. This includes the sculpting, molding, casting, and shipping. The $50 guys are probably the ones with a computer/rapid prototyper set-up. I am working on acquiring this capability :) .
