    Sorry for the late update, but I added a ball joint in the head to allow for movement. Also I have officially sold one head. I hope that this picks up some steam as it only costs $3.82 for the regular print. Once I earn enough money I may not have to wait months to get Galvatron to test it myself. And also if anyone is willing to donate a junker TR body please PM me. Thank you

    Quick question; does it fold away into the chest cavity?

    I believed that it should due to the fact that the head is about 16 mm wide and the original headmaster is 15mm wide.

    Sweet. Is there a mechanism for it in place though?

    No you have to the mod yourself sorry. But I believe there are many tutorials around for that.

    Please provide some physical samples of your work. Also, please use the Commissioners Listing and Feedback subforum to solicit orders, thanks!

    This is great work. You are off to a terrific start!

    And don't apologize for the dollar mark-up. You could probably charge more than that.

    EDIT: If I can make one suggestion, you might want to try using more sides on your arcs and spheres. Even at this small scale, you might notice the lower polygon count on the helmet showing through when it is printed from Shapeways. Bumping up the geometry will give you a higher definition and therefore a smoother finish. So many of my early helmets didn't use enough polygons, and I've been slowly trying to rectify that. On the other hand, boosting the number of angles really slows down my clunky old computer.

    Thank you for letting me know. I am sorry that I cannot provide physical samples right now because my family is having financial issues.

    Thank you for your advice and compliments. Yeah my build takes up to 30 min to load on TinkerCad along with 10 min to save changes. It's really quite frustrating.

    I just ordered your Galvatron head from Shapeways. Once I get it in hand, I'll take a few photos of it fresh out of the box, paint it up, then put the head on Galvatron and snap a few more photos. I'll be sure to send them to you and you can use those pics for your physical samples if you would like.

    Thank you. Also let me know how you like it. I made it relatively cheap so it's easily accessible and easy to replace. Let me know if there are any issues that I need to fix.

    Also I filled a hole that was in the side of the helmet so you may need to sand it down to round it out.

    Thank you so much!!! I actually plan on becoming a toy designer, hopefully for Hasbro, in the future. I actually applied for their job last year but forgot to put my portfolio (Epic Fail). But now that I have started this I can provide a better one.

    Great job. I second the idea about higher poly counts. Sorry to hear about your family's financial issues, but keep up the hard work and you'll get the success you deserve.
