    So big thanks go out to Darkov for casting the IPOD Convoy head. I had always had issues with the classics voyager Prime head sculpt and now those issues can be put to rest with what I consider to be a perfect head sculpt. The head is ball jointed and fits perfectly in place of the old one.

    Yeah, that makes a nice difference. The only thing that detracts from the g1 toon look is seein the front tires. Yet that's why we have Masterpiece editions I suppose. Did you add any paint to that..? It looks a little...different. Silver legs and what not...

    Man that Prime head looks fantastic! I saw Darkov's thread selling it but I couldn't think of where to use it. I may have to see if he has any others

    Yeah I made some cosmetic changes to Prime. I painted the upper arms,thighs,and leg vents silver. The shoulders and lower arms got some cleaning up and painting to get rid of the awful yellow. I also added some red paint to the corners of the wind shield.

    I really like that head, but to be completely honest, I'm not sure if I really dig it on the Classics Prime body. It just doesn't quite look right to me.

    Maybe I just find the Classics body to be too angular, and that head seems more broad, boxy and old-fashioned...?

    Personally, I'm still waiting for a "perfect" G1 Prime mold, preferably close to Ultra scale.

    I had made minor changes to the old head but never really liked it all that much. Right now it's sitting in my "Prime parts box".

    Yeah I'm hoping to see a perfect G1 Prime also. Back when they announced Universe 2.0 I had some hoped for something like that.

    Can't say the new head goes with the rest of body, but its your toy and i gotta respect whatever mods you do to it.

    Peace!

    I don't have any pics, but it was pretty simple. I just cut a ball and post off of some random minicon's leg joint and inseted it into the cavity that was left by the original head. I made a small hole in the bottom of the post so I could secure it through the neck panel with a small screw. If you ever take the head off of the classics voyager Prime you'll easily see what a simple mod it was.
