    So I purchased the Headrobots head for my Hardhead lot the rest of you, and was TOTALLY caught off guard when I saw they were releasing the comic/ cartoon accurate one a month later. So my first reaction was being pissed, but then I saw the silver lining. I could take the head I already had, and make a Chromedome! The funny this is, I always thought that the Duros head looked more like Stylor! So I did some research and ran across this:

    So going back to what I said about having the Duros head, I pulled out my Sideswipe and played around with some things and took pics:

    So I am on the fence about whether or not the head is too big on the Classic's body. Plus I am curious to see any any skilled photo shoppers could hook up my picture to see how he would look in Chromedome colors. I personally feel that the Sideswipe body looks like a better choice than the Hot Rod body. What do you guys think? Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

    Why not put it on an alternator or human alliance? It's too big for a deluxe.

    haha sideswipe joins the cast of Charlie Brown :) 

    Yeah it's too big but I wonder if there is a KO head that's possibly smaller. It sucks because I know what you want to do with it. IF you were to go this route I suggest offsetting the size with shoulder pads/weapon mounts.

    Yeah going smaller on the head would make for a mighty small Headmaster, cuz the Duros is already pretty small, so looks like I'll have to go a lil bigger on the body. Dang. Thought I had a winner here.

    What about using Crossovers Car Ironman + mods for Chromedome?
