    If I did this for titan masters you would lose the neck swivel. It would work, but would only be able to look straight ahead.

    I use Smooth-on products. Been molding and casting toy parts for a little over a decade now.

    I believe it was mentioned that they are using a resin with dye.

    I haven't done any more past the designs shown, but I have a good number of each cast.

    Casting resin under pressure. Without pressure you get the bubbles.

    I hope the day comes where you'll have all 13 Prime cores (if I get the Throne of the Primes set, I'll totally lend you those guys), and then we could get a ton of color options!

    I have hungurr and elita 1 (eBay) but no Starscream. Also alchemist prime and alpha trion. No rubber to mold those four though.

    Just going to say, if you made a recast of Onyx' plate, I think a lot of people would appreciate it. Ditto for Prima, Nexus, Amalgamous and the Arisen.

    Any plans for a megatronus? The clear red one that came with blast-off has me thinking a set would look great with the dinobots. Also have you considered trying to make thinner ones that could sit flush in the hands?

    I don't have any of those parts. Got pics?

    Megatronus? Haven't seen the one from Blast off either. I had thought about making hand only sets, but wasn't sure which cores to use.

    This is the megatronus that comes with blast-off, it's the exact same mold as the one that comes with the bomb-burst just in different colors. Combiner-Wars-Special-Edition-Prime-Master-Megatronus.jpg

    Is there any way you can make copies of just the last 4 prime masters back plates, that way people could just buy duplicates of existing figures and just swap out the back plates?

    Curse hasbro for putting a 3rd of the line behind a 70 dollar sdcc exclusive. >_>
