    Does Blurr have that same plastic piece as Brainstorm on his back that blocks the head from staying there? I have Brainstorm and was contemplating doing this to Blurr but I wonder about what needs to be trimmed besides the shield. I'd want to do this to the Takara one (if I can find one that I could afford.) The Hasbro colors look horrid.

    I also wish Shapeways made a custom back of his head like they did for Hot Rod.

    It's the exact same mold as Brainstorm, so the joint bar on the back is the same. The shield is the only thing needing cut out and gutted, but it helps to at least take the Headmaster lower legs off for clearance.
    I prefer the Hasbro one over the Takara one, actually. The blues used are very striking.

    You can kind of see that the landing gear on Brainstorm has a clearance issue with the head if I try even folding the legs up.

    That entire section needs sanded out to allow for room for the head.
    It was all a matter of trial and error to get it just right.

    Gads I need to go back and clean this up a bit...
