    Hi, I remember seeing it on a few customs around here....but cant see to figure out where they are coming from...Shapeways maybe? It is a custom chest piece that looks more g1 accurate than the current CHUG Megatron (gun) chestplate? Any help would rock!

    Spoonman had done one and I believe he was selling casts of it a while back. I built one from sheet styrene (3 thick layers with added styrene details built on) for my WIP. It's been a WIP for 2 1/2 years now. lol

    Thanks tho! Hopefully he is still selling them!

    I sent a message to Spoonman ages ago but he never got back to me :( 

    Now, can someone make a better head for this mold?

    I'm thinking of something like this...

    Check pages 1 & 2 of my WIP thread in the link above. I started carving and sculpting a new face into the existing Classics Megatron head/face, then added styrene to build a better helmet. It's still a WIP due to a lot stuff going down over the last year, but I can snap a few more WIP shots to show what was done after that last update.

    No plans to cast it or anything though (I don't cast or have materials).

    You can use a g2 hero megatron head cast.

    It already looks like what you need.

    That is a good point, sadly I do not have that figure. Is anyone able to make a cast of this?

    I have not heard back from Spoonman yet, but if I do, ill let you know Xenon. He may just be too busy to do these anymore. If thats the case, guess im scratchbuilding like hX did. By the way, hX....sweet work on that head for him! You definitely need to get around to finishing this guy up! Heck, I was going to live with the head on mine, but now...I may have to go that route! If you ever find someone to do head casts for ya tho..ill definitely bite the bullet and buy one! Same with the chest!
