    Man its been SOO long since I've posted in radicons, figured I'd come back with a bang well a cracker anyway what I'm getting at is I'm trying to do more of this kinda stuff.

    To start it off is my first time sculpting a face with apoxie sculpt, kind of a cross between IDW f22 and the infiltration design

    The face is what puts me off this figure. Your custom shows me what could have been. This looks awesome. Great work!

    Makes the figure look so much better. I agree with a previous post, the face is what put me off these figures to begin with. Well done!

    VERY well done. It completely changes the figure with this new face. Great job.

    Pretty cool! The mouth area reminds me of certain Austrian bodybuilders, or a specific one actually. :D

    There were two things that really put me off about these seekers, their faces, and their (in my opinion) spindly arms, you have most certainly fixed one of those issues, amazing sculpt work!

    wow a blast from the past!

    well there was a different version of these faces that actually got a short casting run along with a set of Null rays that were direct copies of the MP 7 molds, sorry @HalfAshed I never did the shapeways thing nearly all my stuff was done by hand with the exception of a few items I produced for others.

    @Megatron31
    Ok Thanks for replying. I'll make some posts to pick up some MP Null Rays and check Shapeways also. I know Sunbow has some Voyager Seekers heads, so will see if they will work.
