    Non invasive. Simply because I hate that ghoulish SS86 face! Just a try; I haven't checked if alt mode still possible with this configuration.

    Nice that makes me wonder about using the Igear head considering there is one sitting unused for most people that got the set

    IIRC, the iGear heads are a little too small for this mold and result in a pinhead look - but this is great work. Nicely done.

    So TR Blurr beats SS86 Blurr even in his own color scheme? :D . Nice work on the paintjob. :thumbs2:

    Oh I thought you painted it that way. Looks great!

    Yeah, I love the SS86 figs but Blurr...it's not the head that bothers me like it does for many. It's like the only figure that adhering so strictly to his G1 design becones a negative and I can't put my finger on it.

    For me it is the fact that the arm kibble could have been reduced with more clever engineering. It takes up the entire length of the arm and it is attached at the fist. The chin, sunken cheeks and lips are a bit too exaggerated as well.

    Still, I think this is the best representation of him.

    As far as using the Legends Kup head. It looks good, almost great! The size works well, except for the depth. Hopefully someone makes a replacement head for Kup based on this without the headmaster gimmick.
