    Well, here's Waspinator's head redone to be show accurate. I sculpted a completely new head for him out of Milliput, as well as a new balljoint and neck to stick it on. If anyone remembers, I said I was going to make a new head for him when I made my old Dinobot head...well, 2 years later...lol

    Anyway, I'm also about halfway done resculpting another Dinobot head out of Milliput as the one that I sculpted from Sculpey is kinda annoying me now. I've also got the basic shape for a Scorponok head done, although I'm having a little trouble finding good reference pictures for him.

    I'll be posting pics of those later on. As well as my redone Beast Machines Nightscream. I've totally resculpted him so he's cleaner and much more show accurate now. Until then, enjoy!

    Thanks guys! All your comments are highly appreciated lol

    As for reproing it, I dunno if it can be done. It's got a lot of pointy bits and crevices that I think would be very hard for the molding material to get into and still come out cleanly. I could make some more by hand though.

    Fantastic sculpt job. And he still transforms? I'm assuming he does - it just looks a hair wide in the picture.

    WOW! I love the beasties! If you are making more I would love one myself. I'll paint them myself. Same goes for show accurate ones for any BW toy.

    Thanks again, guys.

    It does still transform, but it's really tight. Also, I needed to sand down the antenna piece on the inside to make sure there's enough clearance for the bot mode antennae. The head also has to be rotated 180 degrees for beast mode so that it's facing backwards. It's fine otherwise, but to use the normal robot head, this head has to be removed, as it's too tall to fit in the space in his chest. But, like I said earlier, each one would be made by hand, so I could easily make another one that fits better.

    If you want a head of your own, feel free to PM me and we'll see if we can work something out. Now, keep in mind, they'll be a bit more expensive than Sculpt-bot's heads because each one will be made from scratch, by hand. For Waspinator, at least. Once I'm done with the Dinobot head, I think that one could be easily reproduced, though. Scorponok too, maybe. The only reason I don't think Waspinator could be reproed is cuz the mandible are completely separate pieces from the lower jaw.

    I'm thinking of doing a Blackarachnia head as well. I had completely resculpted an original BW Blackarachnia (I made her boobs way too big, though lol not on purpose, mind you) and I gave her an actual face on her normal robot head, but now the head seems a little too small. Granted, if I gave her a bigger head, it'd have to be removed to transform, but at least the bot mode would look better. So that might be another head that may be available in the future. That is, if I decide to start selling them.

    Anyway, I'd need someone to repro these heads, because I don't have the necessary materials or know-how to do them myself.
