    I'll second that. I love to swap heads for repaints of Alts. Hell, I've done it with six (6) of them now.

    Exactly 4 are on my spreadsheet. That does not include yours.

    Is there interest in it?

    Had me worried for a second :huh. It's not under that email. It's under "unholy".

    Forget the strokes, he wants to give me a heart attack :wink: 

    If I can get caught up (if all goes well) with the launchers, you should be getting an email from me this weekend on your order.

    As soon as I have my camera back (in-laws went to vegas and took it), I will. I have already posted the first three a while ago. I am most impressed with the fourth one so I can't wait to post that one - Kickback. Numbers five and six are Venom, the deluxe insecticon and a decepticon version of Chromia (for my wife).

    They all require labels so they do not look their best. Also, Chromia is missing one paint app - I still have to buy the spray adhesive so I can use the stencil I made.

    **edit**here is the link to that thread so you can see the first three. Looking back at that thread, KCC, you actually commented in it. :D

    Man, that Wheeljack head came out great! I didn't see it until now.

    Are the eyes included as a separate piece if you just order the back of the head? I'd like to order one, but I want to be sure of which option to order for what I want to do.

    Thanks!

    Wheeljack's eyes are already clear. you just need the back of the head

    Hey KCC, I hope I'm not out of line asking in this thread, but have you considered making a Alternator Sideswipe head in red, for those who want to kitbash Alt. prowl into Red Alert?

    Not out of line here, perfect place to ask.

    We should get a poll going for what heads everyone would like to see get done and sold. Of course, the most popular ones will get first plus the loaners to make them.

    TFMaster is sending me some custom heads here soon with some others as well. He's footing most of the molding fees for these. So ones he can't loan out, it would be nice if someone else would come forward to help with this ongiong project "Heads for All".

    Hopefully the one you need will be one of the first group to get done.

    Ken, if TFmaster is sending you some heads, could you ask if I could get a copy done of them too if hes willing to let me buy one? I'll help with the molding costs too if he does, and help with some funding for some further projects too! Anything to see a fellow Albertan go somewhere to help others!

    Heads most people will want

    Swindel with red visor(so they can make trailbreaker)
    sidswipe (so they can make Red Alert)
    Tracks
    Decpticharge (so they can make windcharger)
    G2 megatron
    Galaxy Force mega starscream
    basically any mega head that can be switched with a mega or an alt
    But those are the ones that i have seen used most in kitbashes

    You might also want to do heads of BW Ultra Megtron and transmetal Primal as they are in the same size class

    Begining of next month Bt Prowl comes out
    You might want to team up with reprolabels like you did with the hound and the wheel jack parts and Make a Alt Red alert kit. They make the G1 labels for Alt prowl and you make the Red sidswipe head. Considering the figure looks more like Red alert than Prowl and the upcomming figure for Red Alert looks more like Prowl than red alert your sure to sell a decent amount.

    I know that, but it looks from the photos like KCC's repro head comes with eyes. Looks like the front piece of the head has either eyes molded into it or comes with a reproed eyepiece.

    So Ken, what's the scoop? :)

    Hey Ken, are you able to shrink stuff too? I'm thinking it would be cool to see the Supreme Starscream crown for the smaller voyager size one.

    The back of the head is just like the original, the front of the repro'd head has the eyes molded in with it and not a seperate piece like the original

    Sorry, no.

    Some people have sent me information on shrinking and enlarging (no dirty jokes now :wink:  ) but it's something I just don't have time for now. I'm actually falling behind (general health and such) which is not good. Hopefully everyone will understand.

    Back on topic, if someone was to make smaller/larger molds with this material (real nice ones) and send them to me for casting, that I could do. A good mold is only about 25% of making a nice piece. The other 75% is expensive equipment and plastic resins to make the cast great.

    So whois up to the challenage?

    I think I'm gonna order a pair of those Windcharger drive shaft kits... one for Windcharger and one for Decepticharge... but it probably won't be until next month or so. But it's good to know that they are available.
