    I'm hoping for most of the heads, to be designed to go with any version, so people can choose which they think works best.

    Well, it won't matter much for Goldbug, as that head is (presumably) going to be blue, so color-matching won't be an issue. But what about the yellows on the other three? Even Hasbro has trouble sometimes matching a color on the same toy, never mind your quest to match an after-market accessory to it. I can just picture it now....

    Count me in for the Botcon 2010 heads. Any chance of an accurate Gnaw head for the Sharkticons?

    I'd be intrested in a Goldbug head as I could get the United version of Bumblebee and simply swap it over :thumbs2:

    I think 1 yellow will work for Classics, Henkei, and Legacy Bees. Then an orangy yellow for RTS Bumblebee. Color matching is difficult due to the limited resources available to me. I can get something close, but it will always be off. The only way to color match is to either goto a factory to make these parts, or repaint the entire figure and the new parts. As even painting any new upgrade part will still not color match the plastic of the original toy's.

    Not sure if they need new heads, since in the comic they were suppose to be upgrades or new models. I think the original heads on those figures still work.

    Not sure if you can talk about it now (which I completely respect your decision), but are you still planning the Roadbuster head for the Cybertron repaint figure?

    I should have one coming from eBay, and would love to give him a proper noggin... :)

    Yeah, that will be the next major kit after Cliffjumper. So maybe a May release.

    I'm pumped about all the new stuff. I sent you a PM about this, but I thought I'd ask it here. Will you do a gun and rocket launcher set for Sideswipe and Sunstreaker based off the Red Alert upgrade? Also, I'd definitely would like to hear more about a general weapons pack for all the Classics characters.

    Hey Venksta,
    Any chance of you putting some animated stuff on your list? Ever since I saw your protectobot heads I've been wanting more.

    Some random ideas:
    Ultra Magnus Roadbuster Helmet
    Stunticon weapons pack
    Sentinel Prime armored head
    Bluestreak head for freeway jazz.
    Cybertron mode parts for oilslick.

    PM replied.

    I'm not too interested in Animated stuff. But I did start a Bluestreak head for Freeway Jazz awhile ago, but then lost interest. I was planning to make him katanas as well. Maybe I'll revist the idea before BotCon. As for Stunticons, I'm watching the exclusive news closely, as I'm planning to be at BotCon this year. ;) 


    And anyone wondering about my Huffer head design. Well, its on the back burner, since my toy is MIA along with his minicon... :(

    The next weapons pack will have the Skyfall rifle, and Red Alert's gun in it. I guess I could release it next month. There will be a total of 3 guns in that pack, at the same price. I'll probably do Sideswipe's after.

    here's something i think would be cool, from the G1 episode Fire in the sky, a set of the green crystal shards that prime and megs duel with. you could do two full length shards and two where that blades have been shattered down to the hilt.

    You could try a animated Headmaster unit that can actually transform.
