    Rage faces are no longer in production and none are in stock...

    Ok guys.... in conjunction with Zildjian we have finalized the specifics for selling the custom cast "rage" face for the TFC Hercules head. Zildjian will be casting the faces and I will be compiling a list of interested parties, as well as accepting payment for them. Zildjian will cast them and send them out on a first come first served basis, with an expected delivery time of 3-6 weeks after ordering AND having payment received. No exceptions. If for some reason the faces cannot be completed, a refund will be issued. ALL PAYMENTS WILL BE IN THE FORM OF PAYPAL "GIFT" OR BY MONEY ORDER. If you do not want to pay as a PayPal t additional chargers will be applied. When you send payment, make sure to include your screename
    in the notes section so that i can update the list "PAID" here and also PM me your address.

    Here are some specifications on the faces courtesy of Zildjian. ALL faces are cast with a new type of resin from the smooth-on company is brand new to the public and virtually mimics ABS plastic. It is a gray and or/black resin that has aluminum infused within it to help strengthen the casts once cured. This can be seen when sanding the cured resin as little flecks of shiny metal will appear.

    I think that just about covers everything. All prices include shipping costs to the United States via first class mail. Larger orders will require additional shipping costs, and international shipping will be quoted when requested.... but it is NOT cheap unfortunately.

    The cost of each faceplate is $7.00 with shipping included to the USA. All payments IN THE FORM OF PAYPAL "GIFT" can be sent to: Mredd21@aol.com. And again, when you send payment, make sure to include your screename in the notes section so that i can update the list "PAID" here and also PM me your address.

    These are sample casts...colors shown are NOT final color

    [​IMG]



    To remove face slip a small flat tip under chin...gently wiggle with upwards pressure sliding flat tip under face further as it rises and gives more room for tip to fit under the face...

    orrrrr, if you remove the 2 screws on the back of the HERC head, the entire black panel slides off, leaving the large red translucent plastic piece as well as the silver face plate. Apply firm pressure to either side of the face plate and pull. voila, new face ready to be installed.

    I will get the size tonight and post it.

    I *might* be able to play with the mold to create a post, but I can't guarantee that. It is really a simple mod to make though.

    Would you be able to snap the visor on this face if you so choose?

    Will it be cast in a matching color, painted by you, or come unpainted?

    since the visor actually snaps onto the head and just lays over the face (which is the exact same size as the original, aside from the additional length on the bottom) i think its VERY safe to say that the visor will indeed fit just fine :) ...though i will have no way to officially make this claim for a couple more days unfortunately...

    Here are some specifications on the faces courtesy of Zildjian. ALL faces are cast with a new type of resin from the smooth-on company is brand new to the public and virtually mimics ABS plastic.

    So is there anyway you can take a picture of the head looking down a little? I ask because it almost looks like he has to look up because of the lowered jaw.

    Also, post a pic when you get the visor. I think that would be a deal breaker if it doesn't fit after the mod. I really doubt it will be a problem but there is always a very slight chance.

    i actually can't take the requested pictures since Z has my Herc face...maybe Z can if he has Hercules...

    i think its safe to say that he can't literally look down, but he can look straight ahead if remember correctly...heh, even if he could look down, all he'd see is the top of his giant protruding "man-boobs" :D
