    Hi all

    I just found out that both versions of G1 Targetmater (TM) Scourge and Non TM Scourge are different in that
    1. TM Fist holes are bigger to insert targetmaster Fracas
    2. TM Head hole is bigger to insert targetmater Fracas

    I am getting a yellowing with rusty screw TM Scourge soon. Is it possible that I get a Non TM scourge (cheaper!!!) and move the HEAD and FISTS of TM to non TM?

    Please advise. Thanks

    It should be possible, as the only changes are those you mentioned. I will say this however, the value of the figure your putting together maybe effected in that its technically a repaired figure and for some they won't pay top dollar for it.

    Thank for the reply. I have no intention to sell it.

    Just wonder if I give the FRACAS to DARKOV, will he be able to make copy?

    I intend to this to all the Targetmasters that weren't Targetmaster before, except I'll keep one hand so they can hold the regular weapons too.

    Can anyone who has experience in casting/repro help to answer this?

    I will have a FRACAS but there are cracks on the crotch clips, if it is sent for repro, will it affect?

    I am basically buying this defective Fracas to have Darkov repro it and hope it will not have crack/stressmark for the replica copy.

    You would need to PM the person your wanting to Repro it to see if it will affect it.

    I answered your earlier question in a PM, so now this one. :) 

    The stress mark won't be present on the copy. Darkov will be using your Scourge to make a resin mold for mass production. The only way the copy would be affected is if it had surface imperfections that the mold-making process would pick up (like deep scratches, for example).

    Also, are you sure the head transplant is necessary? I think that the head guns for regular and Targetmaster Scourges are interchangeable, so I'd be a bit surprised if the hole on the top of his head was a different size...

    Hi, Lunar Archivist

    The question I asked in the PM to you is Fracas can fit in Non Target Master Scourge or not.

    Here thread is about the transplate operation of it. :) 

    Darkov is not replying me yet. Thanks for all the answer :)
