    Trent,
    I know you're juggling a few different projects, but I figured I'd toss some faceplate ideas in the ring that I haven't seen suggested yet:
    IDW/Scavengers accurate Misfire? (with possible snarky expression)
    BW Terrorsaur/Fractyl/etc.
    I'm hoping to have some $$ to burn later in the year for commissions, but until then I figured the suggestions were worth a shot. Keep up the awesome work!

    I bet it's frustrating with all these people flocking to the thread and suggested faces/heads.

    That said...KSI Boss head, to replace Nitro's?

    Have you considered making a Titan Master Face of Futurama Richard Nixon? There are a lot of heads in jars on Futurama, but Nixon is the only one known for joining up with robot bodies over and over.

    What is the best material for these? I thought it was frosted ultra detail. But I'm also seeing people recommending Black Hi-Def Acrylate. Which is the smoothest? I ordered an Ariel head in the colored material a while ago & it was so grainy I never used it & eventually tossed it in the trash. So now I'm afraid to order anything from Shapeways.

    Still wanting an Elita-1 face.

    Black high-def acrylate is imo the best material Shapeways has. It's more durable than frosted materials ( which you should absolutely NEVER get for a pressure joint like on bb/rb, that's guaranteed disaster) plus it's texture is comparable to frosted materials, meaning no grainy looking faces. Downside is that it's also currently the highest cost material and not all sellers make it available. Any acrylate material will still be better than any of the basic materials like wsf or any colored/ polished variant.

    Ok, thanks! Gonna try this again. I got a ton of Titan Masters on clearance at Walmart for $1.17 & $0.10 each. Need to start doing something with them.

    Wow, awesome prices! Lowest I found was $2.50. Yeah, I haven't tried the new material but I've seen tons of recommendations for it. I went the cheap route on this because I've always had good luck in the past. I did manage to fix it pretty easily though

    Saw these new faces today. Cloudburst is my only surviving childhood bot, so his face is a must buy for me.

    Keep on killin' it, Trent!

    Definitely picking you up Cloudburst and Skullgrin. My first 2 Pretenders as a kid and I liked both of their characterisations in the Marvel comic.

    This is what the POTP Pretenders should have had instead of the stupid Prime glyphs. Proper Titanmasters. Worst gimmick since Cyber Planet Keys.

    Ooh, I'd like to use these for the upcoming Prime Masters, too, but... It would be nice if you or someone could make a piece to attach the Prime Master matrix faces to. I know you have backplates (for putting TR faces on CW bots) but a single solid piece with the neck connector would be ideal. The neck part could be solid, it wouldn't need to rotate at all. Then we could use the Prime Master matrix faceplates as a matrix/enigma for the leader figures, voyager feet/guns, and deluxe hand/armor.

    Thats something I can do, but I'll want to check out how they're using the Titan to grip into the various ports they're using, so I know what features are essential to reproduce and what I don't need to, so it will have to wait until they hit market.

    On another front, would people be interested in 3mm versions of the Pretenders' weapons (everything would also be available in 5mm, obviously)

    Huh, well that's actually an idea though. What ABOUT Cyber Planet Key inspired backplates? That would fit in nicely with the new gimmick.

    Can we make little requests for things non TR-related? Like for instance, I'd love to see a little visor piece you could glue over CW Breakdown's face to give him his toy-accurate goggles, or something that you could plug into CW Legends Hot-Rod(imus?)'s car mode to replicate Star Convoy's golden chest-crest thingy when he's combined with CW Optimus.
