    Sorry if it's been mentioned already, what are the changes you'll be doing to the head? I'm hoping it's something to do with the neutral face, since it looks thinner than the other faces. I think it would be more G1 accurate like that. Awesome stuff though, about time someone stopped dicking around with the head of trying to give the Headmaster a different helmet and replace it altogether.

    I've actually been discussing this exact situation with him. According to him, while the heads will definitely fit , there's a difference between the size of the ball joint used by the stock titan masters and the neck joint included with the new heads. The latter is sized 4mm, while the stock neck joints are at 5mm.

    My plan is to try and build up the joint differences with coats of gorilla glue once I have the new heads to see if I can adapt them to the neck swivel.

    Not really sure what upgrades the voyager optimus needs really.

    Yeah, the neatural face will get a bit of a resculpt so its not as thin as it looks right now.

    The stock head has a 4mm joint. The current design on mine has 5mm. I can try and do 4mm, however, you'd still need to probably do some adjustments on your end, to make the fitting work.

    I like where all this is going. May order a set. I kind of wish it was possible to make a complete head that can be attached to the part that swings into his chest and not have any piece that is taken off or plugged in. But any improvement is a good improvement as I love everything else on the TR Galvatron.

    My dad says he preordered this and the guns for both Cromedome and Brainstorm. I can't wait to get these sets.

    I haven't gotten my PayPal invoice yet. Does it usually take this long?

    Just ordered this and the Autobot gun kit.
    I think I'll try to apply the Shapeways set too (or find a 3D model to download) as that with this head will kick Galvatron up several notches.

    I have to manually record each order down, then create the invoice through paypal. Its not a quick or easy job. XD However, if you got the confirmation email, when you first placed your order, then its in the system. I'm still recording and invoicing orders. If you want to make sure your order didn't get rush, while waiting for invoices, just send me a PM with your email address used for your order, and I'll confirm if its in the system. :)

    Awesome set, but kinda pricey. I already have the gun mounts from Shapeways. I'd gladly buy just the head.

    Will you consider releasing a pack with just the G1 head and faces? I really don't care much for the gun, in my mind Galvatron should first and foremost use his cannon.

    Hey everyone, bulk of the orders will be out near the end of the month, hopefully. Once orders are close to ready, I'll post final photos of the kits, as theres some minor changes. Mostly, cosmetic stuff I either forgot (dark grey chin) or made to look better, like the neutral face.

    I'll probably offer some "basic" style sets of the Galvatron kits, but not until the pre-orders have finished. It'll most likely be part of the next batch of new items, once these are all done.

    I'm torn between getting this guy and getting a classic-colors Maniaking, given that Maniaking is going for 50-70$ on eBay.

    I can understand your dilemma. I have both, with the upgrade on order. My biggest complaint about Mania King (aside from the gorilla arms) is that is just too small compared to current HasTak and 3rd party voyagers. TR Galvatron sizes up very nicely, which is why I am investing so much to perfect him. Mania King is an amazing design, and I still love it, but it just falls short (pun intended) for my collection needs.
