    This is going to be a movie-verse style Rodimus Prime. I'm just having a hard time trying to figure out a base head mold. I'm sure anything will need some heavy sculpting, but I'd love some suggestions.

    Thanks in advance.

    Edit: Added sketches of preliminary work. Using the '07 Movie Voyager Optimus mold as the base. Going to trim down the front semi part and add the spoiler and to the top of the cab area.

    Edit 2: Added the Sideswipe head sketch. I think that really works.

    What design are you trying to customize? "Movie-style Rodimus Prime" is very open-ended. Do you have a render or an illustration that you intend to use for your plans?

    Every thing SQ7 said, and also - what mold are you using for the body as that well help us find you a head that meshes well and works in transformation.

    Added rough sketches of preliminary work. Everything should work out well as most of the adjustments really just end up on the backpack. I may just need to figure out how the head fits under the trimmed down hood area. The yellow spoiler thing will have a pivot at the front point of it to flip up and form the wings on the back.

    Really looking for a half way classic look Rodimus head with a little movie influence. I'm sure I'll have to Apoxie sculpt most of the helmet type thing, but as far as a "face" underneath it, I just can't picture anything.

    Oh this is a really nifty concept!

    The Energon Rodimus head springs to mind, it's a fair sight different than his G1 look, so with the extra greebles and different proportions, it might get you closer to "movie style"....but it depends on how bayformer'y you like your bayformers ;)

    Sideswipe. Once you flatten out the head fins, and sculpt a little more helmet around the face it might work.

    Which Sideswipe are you referring to?

    Sorry, Human Alliance. All the deluxe's would be too small.

    I think that might work out really well. I wasn't seeing it until I worked up the sketch, but I think that's pretty cool on there. I attached the head sketch to the original post.

    Now I just need to find a HA Sideswipe head.

    Thanks all!
