    Ok while goofing around in my parts bin I came across PCC Icepick and realized the combined head would look great with the Prime styling. So I took the head and did a face transplant with PRID Arcee's head to come up with this. Unfortunately the eyes were lost in the process so I had to make new ones. Kinda hard to tell by these wip pics but they include pupils. Once the Epoxy Sculpt cures it will get the finishing touches and the details will be easier to see. The Icepick head is nearly the same size as the First Edition head so that's why I chose that over PRID. Should transform fine once finished. I know it's a departure from the G1 version but no more than Arcee from her G1 self. With a slight color change of blue this should work out nicely. Make for a good big sis to Arcee.

    Wow, that was a pretty rude comment. It's still a wip, the finished product will look pretty good. Not to mention plenty of women have short hair, besides, I wasn't even going for a hair effect. I'm not exactly new at customizing either.

    That will work, you could even get Flamewar repainting another. The "hair" would work well for her too.

    Honestly? That's super cool, but I can't not see "Naruto" when I look at it.

    Maybe with some paint.

    For some bizarre reason I'm reminded of Naruto. Why is that? Perhaps it's the black bit at the front reminding me of his headband..
    Anyway, this is pretty good.
    I knew it couldn't be just me! : P

    I REALLY like it, but as another poster suggested, I think it'd look kickass if you repainted the whole figure and made it into Flamewar. Very creative, though. I would have never thought of this.

    While everyone saw a Naruto face in there, It reminded me of this figure:
    [​IMG]

    Probably because of the "hair :D 

    Looks interesting. Like you said, it's big departure from the G1 character, yet it fits prefectly with the TFP style. Can't wait to see her finished.

    A Flamewear paintscheme would look awsome too.
