    Love these! In your opinion, which material would work best for these (quality vs. cost) for someone who will be painting them?

    Frosted Extreme Detail is really the only way to go. Good detail with minimal printing artifact and holds paint very well.

    Black hi def acrylate is alright, but if you unscrew them too much it will break the screw post

    These items don't appear to be available in that material?

    Any part with sprues (so, any multipack or joined models) cannot come in BHDA material. Single packs can, though, and if you buy both separately you can get them in BHDA, at $10 each, vs the FUD multipack at only $15.

    In my personal experience, both BHDA and FUD are detailed and easy to paint, though FUD feels more rubbery and will hold up better if you unscrew it a lot, like @tigatron2002 said.

    What @denebian said. I'm going with white stron and flexible polished since I plan on painting and sealing them anyway. Besides mine will just be temporary till someone like perfect effect or nonnef make an actual upgrade kit

    Great, thanks for the advice everyone! Now I just have to decide which Titan Masters are going to lose their heads (faces) over this!

    If you have them already I would recommend overlord and black shadow. Their titanmasters are molded to look like giga and mega, plus there are pieces on shapeways that give the faceplates backs so you could make them non headmasters (though you would still need neck joints for them I think)

    No Black Shadow, sadly :/ Will see which of the other spares are a good colour match for Overlord, if not for the original Powermasters!

    If you want to color match to the powermasters themselves I'd say Terri-bull for mega and autobot teslor (brainstorm, still available on Walgreens website) for giga

    I've found Apceface is a really good donor for Decepticons, as he works as a good "all purpose" type body and you can never have too many gorillajet drone troops. I have the feeling Skullgrin is probably going to be my go-to when Power of the Primes hits.

    A couple of these so we can make sprocket and rumbler would be pretty sweet.

    It involve a few new connector types, and the first print of the connectors was too loose. I have a second set on order now. As soon as I've confirmed fit, they're going up.

    Hi Trent, with your experience TR face-off-ing do you have any info on which stock faceplates are easier to swap between which stock Titanmasters?

    The only ones that don't work in a standard way so far that I'm aware of are Scourge and Blurr, due to their crests. There may be one or two other exceptions, but otherwise they all connect the same way.
