    I did my DIY after this, and it's super easy to add a neck socket for IG body. Just find a right size socket and glue to the body
    So it's still a headmaster and the Brawn head can be installed anytime brawn2.jpg brawn5.jpg brawn6.jpg brawn8.jpg .

    I wonder if someone could fabricate a neck adapter for this figure on shapeways? That would be awesome but I'm not talented enough myself lol

    seriously, u don't need that. Just use any thick rubber band, or rubber wrapper of a cable, cut and glue to the neck of Igear Hench, that's it.

    I'm actually trying to work on one. I'm not good with 3D design though, and I haven't put up anything Ive done for sell for Shapeways before, but if this turns out somewhat OK, maybe I will put it up?

    Mine is basically the Hench ball joint and back of head that you can screw the new face plate to.

    Personally I like the net socket adapter idea better than just a face plate, because in that way you can use the TR Brawn head as a header master.

    Very effective upgrade, much better than the stock head

    I'd probably buy one if you put it on Shapeways.

    Well I think I got something that works.The screw from the headmaster in the back of the head works.
    The ball peg is just a tad tight, may require light sanding. It might be a while before I paint it all up and reassemble the figure.

    I ended up using whatever I had in the toolbox to wrap around the headmaster stalk, which was yellow teflon tape (the type for wrapping pipe threads). I figured it was an easy and removable solution. Worked great!

    Possibly ... I might have to do another round of revisions or two. I kind of stepped away from it... but I'll make another attempt.

    Awesome. I just picked up a Hench and would love a better head. This is perfect for me.

    @Scourgatron Wow, that's awesome, I'm glad you like it.

    Yeah, I did a revision and got it to fit without sanding. Thanks for the pic!
