    That head is more of a dark grey than a black. The flash from the camera makes it look even lighter. Should I paint it black to match the rest of his body or leave it alone as is?

    If you can get the head color to match the black of the body, then you have a match made in heaven there.

    You guys do realize it's the head from Cybertron Runumuck right? You can have the exact same head ( and a useless TF body ) for $10 at any store that carries TFs.....

    I had to remove four screws from his main torso. No big deal. There are springs in there though. I just pryed it enough apart to get the head out, not all the way apart.

    It will take some modifications to attach it though. Ravage has a post, and Runamuck has no hole in his head. His screw port is too low to drill one as well.

    If you were to paint the "helmet" black to match the body, you could leave his mouth piece that dark grey which might look good. Just a thought.

    Sweeeeeeeeeeeet. :D  But have you ever tried this: paint all that white, and call him Runamuck? That would be cool.

    Or you could use this type of head on Decepticharge and paint his body white and call him Runamuck.

    This is what I am going to do. I am working on getting a second head.

    Insane Galvi, good job! As others have said, you not only managed to make a good custom, but you saved the black Vette!
