    It took me several tries to cast this head correctly but I loved the skull face and felt it would be perfect for a mutated head for Toxitron.

    The was suppose to be TOXITRON on the KO MAKETOY trailer but my first time creating custom decals was a failure. The print was way too light and the decal didn't even stick well on it.

    I did use the florecent paint so there are few pics where tere is a black light and the face and eyes glow.

    FYI the KO one is very close to the Original but one critical problem The joint that connect the trailer bottom to the side which is suppose to rotate is so tight instead of rotating the plastic just twist until it finally breaks. Thus no missle lancher pic whcih ended up being fine because I only really like it for the base mode and the trailer anyway.

    The skull face definitely looks better as Toxitron than Magnus due to the evil looking nature of it. Nice work! Diggin' that yellow/green.

    yeah, I kinda like the magnus head myself. Are the heads for sale, or was it just a one off?
    Also, what colors did you use? I just haven't been able to find the right colors for him....

    That's amazing. The "Magnus" head works better on Toxitron than I thought.:)

    Can't say I like the Magnus head as Toxitron. The green used just seems really off. I know that may be the point, but I just don't like it (though I do get why some people do). I personally like the RTS head. The paint job is awesome though. The battle tanker looks REALLY good! Did you try painting up the head that comes with the Make Toys tanker?

    Also, did you use an original Botcon Magnus head, or did you cast a mold for it?

    I like the SG magnus head because it almost looks like the toxins ate away the face plate and such

    Which leads to my only other gripe with this. He's too "clean" his truck feels like it should have some "Wear" to it or something.

    The paint i used was a custom mix of tamiya Yellow with a few drops of light green. The puple was testor acrylic purple pearl, tamiya metalic grey and silver, and clear green on the sword

    The head is a cast it took me more the 15 castings to get it where the horns stayed. I also painted another head to show off the details in black and silver if you are interested

    This is amazing, that head is perfect for the Toxitron Avenger.

    I agree that he's a bit too clean though, would love to see him with some more corrosion going on.

    The SG Magnus head makes it look so much better. Nice job.

    Yeah i like the skull face. It makes me feel like he got mutated from all that toxic stuff he hauls. Maybe some of that TOX N :) 

    I was think about adding more or that orange dripping and some ware to it.

    That would be awesome. Also, would it be alright if I hit you up for a cast of the head at some point?

    So this was a single mold cast for those intersted. I wanted to preserve the socket for the ball joint so I sacraficed the back of the head so insted of being round it is flate. For those who popped of the rts head you will notice that the socket is actually anteroir so to replace the head you put the head over the ball joint and have to push on the face towards the back to get the joint into place.
