    Here is a preview pic of the Stunticon heads that will be series three of my Custom Alternator Heads for kitbashing. They are in the rough stages, some very much so. I tried to combine the toy, and cartoon designs to get a new look. The toys were too similar, and were too "blocky." The cartoon designs were too simple, and some were just plain silly (Dead End and Motormaster come to mind.) I am waiting to sculpt Motormaster until I can get an Alt Prime, as this is an obvious choice for the host body. I am modeling MM's head more after Don Figuero's design from WWI, and the toy, and steering away from the cartoon completely. Series one of the heads are being shipped to me next week, and I will contact all who have expressed interest as soon as I get them. I will also be posting pics of the bashes that I have done for my own personal Alts. Hope you guys like these, all feedback is appreciated, and keep in mind they are in very rough stages.
    Thanks- Shawn

    Yes these will be cast soon, and probably have a run of about 50 sets. I have talked to TFSource, and he said he may be interested depending on packaging and everything, so having them at an online store may be a possibility. I talked to BBTS, and they liked them but couldn't carry them because of liability issues (understandable).

    Just wanted to post all relevant info regarding these heads, just so all ???'s are answered.
    They are going to be cast in white resin with a casting run of 50 for each set of 5 heads.
    They will be for sale, $40 for the set of 5. As of right now they will only be available in sets, no singles.
    The first 3 sets are as follows:
    Series 1: Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Ironhide, Sideswipe/Red Alert, Soundwave.
    Series 2: Ultra Magnus, Kup, Hot Rod, Arcee, Seeker (SS, TC, SW) (wanted to get a 'con in there so Springer will have to wait.)
    Series 3: Stunticons
    Right now I am only sculpting in Alternator scale, however if they do well I may start in other size ranges.
    I have all folks who have PM'ed me, on the list for a set. If you are interested please PM me and I will put you down.
    Thanks guys!
    -Shawn

    These Stunticon heads interest me very much. If you're waiting on Alt. Prime for the Motormaster head... then are there specific bodies you have in mind for these heads? Or are they meant to be compatible with all Alts?

    The main thing with Motormaster is proportion. I know that the vast majority of the MM heads I produce will probably end up on the RAM mold, but I want to get one just so I can find a happy medium. Somewhere in between, so it doesn't look tiny on the truck, and huge on the Jeep or cars.

    Anyone else feel this way? I just figured you would all appreciate having at least one 'con in each set. Being series three is all baddies, we could adjust. The other option is taking Arcee out, and replace with Springer. Hot Rod, Magnus and Kup are definites though, as I already have them done, and am pretty happy with how they turned out. Let me know!

    All right every one! From now on all news regarding the rest of this line, will be posted exclusively on Transtopia (TFMaster.com). I will always come back here and post links to the site when there are updates. TFMaster has created a forum for the products that I will be creating, all under "Bromen Productions" in the forum index. All of you who have contacted me through PM for the first set will still have first dibs on the sets when I get them back from the caster. All others after that will be marketed through Transtopia. Thanks for your support guys, and I will keep you all posted on the progress of the line.

    Interesting moulds! Now what shall happen if someone combined all five Stunticons to form Alternators Menasor, I wonder? Just a thought in mind...

    Very cool!

    Though Im waiting for them to be sold as painted and drilled, etc. Im sure theyd sell alot better to those of us with no kitbashing skill. Is this at least a possibility? Id buy a set of all 5 even though I have a wildrider already.
