    I just got RTS Lugnut. However, I don't dig his head.

    I remember a topic a while back where I considered Optimus Prime being a cargo jet. Well, Lugnut aint exactly a cargo jet, but close.

    I have an Alternator's Optimus head lying around; anyone think it could work? A couple radically different design styles... but there might be merit to the concept.

    Or am I whack?

    I'm in the middle of customizing my RTS Lugnut as well, but
    never thought of Prime.

    Looking forward to seeing pics

    I'll probably do a digi-bash before anything else.

    How's the paint apps on that alt prime head? If it's nice and clean and you're gonna repaint the head for this custom, then I'll be willing to offer you mine since it's got a sloppy paint job due to silver paint strokes from his mouth plate in areas where it should be just blue paint, and blue paint where there should just be silver paint(it could use repainting to look decent (it's in like new/fresh from the package condition btw)). I've been wanting to trade it to someone who would use it for custom purposes with a nice replacement head for my alt prime in exchange: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/wante...want-swap-alernators-optimus-prime-heads.html

    The head I have is pretty good actually. It was a birthday present from bellyboy last year.

    Thanks for offering, tho. I'll keep it in mind should I need another head.

    Do it. I love the idea of Prime as a cargo jet. In fact...I did it myself once. Or twice. I think the Alternator's head might be a touch too large, I like how a smaller head would make the jet mode look bulkier, but what the hell...give it a shot.

    Not one that is show-able.

    Lugnut is still in the box, so I put Prime's head right over Lugnut's. IMO, Optimus' head was much too conservative of an aesthetic compared to Lugnut's body.

    The size was right, but the look was... off. I tried to take a picture but there was way too much glare from the box.

    Dug up a photo...I know it isn't what you planned to do, and I think the monkey connection to Lugnut's frame is brilliant for Primal, but just to show you it can be done and I think a small head works.

    while we are on the topic of head swapping anybody here know if cybertron scourges /cryo scourges head would be a good head to use for rid megatron?

    i been thinking of doing some serious modding work on mine to make him into a post beast machines ressurected veicon megatron and i think cybertron scourge or cryo scourges head with rid megatrons body would make for a very suitable head and body to use for a hybrid vehicon technoorganicly enhanced post beast machines megatron

    let me know how this idea strikes you

    rid megatron with a a modded expanded wingspan in which the outer wings on the figures original set of wings have been sanded down to being just the outer wings round inner wheel well areaof the outer wings

    and a second outer set of wings from another rid megatron modded in such a way that these outer wings have the entire wheel and wheel well section left intact but with the backside of the wheel well section being sanded down completely smoth so that the outer wings exist in two seperate parts for each outer wing

    with cybertron vector primes entire back moutned wings being salvaged and used as the middle wing assmebly to attach the outer parts of each rid megatron outside wing to its inner parts of each outer wing of rid megatron

    basicly megatrons wigs being moddedin such a way that tey fold up in a triple layered manner like a seagulls wings can in real life
