    Ha! I had already started doing this because I wanted to ask if anyone thinks it's possible that the faces under the mouthplates will be interchangeable, to allow simulating expressions.

    These are pretty sloppy and for some reason there's no good straight-on view of the S2 head, so these don't match up exactly. But with interchangeable faces we could have:

    Very alert S1 Prime:

    Or cool-headed S2 Prime:

    Or "WTF?!?", slightly sad, slightly disgusted Prime:

    Yes, I agree and do hope so. The eyes are a little too small.

    Glad that the S2 head is spot on. IMO it's the best head sculpt on a Prime ever.

    how about an upward facing mouthplate on the s1 head? The eyes are a little weird, but I'm ok with it. I've had mp-10 so long with the level mouthplate, and the s1 downward pointing one is killing me! Still cool to have the option, and I'm sure I'll use it. Just wish it was pointing up. :)

    Man I still really love the S1 head the way it is. Lots of Primes have wide eyes already. The S1 head with movie eyes looks too much like MP-10. I'm liking the S1 head more every time I see it. That front on picture is great.

    Good thing I had too much coffee today!! Should the mouthplate top edge be even higher than this and/or more pointy?

    Probably a little more pointy and slightly higher, but imo that’s damn near perfect. Damn. Now I wish I didn’t see it. Lmao. Bang up job. Thanks for doing it

    Thats more what I had in mind, I think they went with the badly drawn version as their guide. Maybe we're lucky and it's just the light from the filming and or not be able to see it in true perspective, that makes it look a little off.

    No problem! Haha, if only they could make a menu of options to tailor each order: upward/downward mouthplate, grey/blue shins, eye shape...

    Two kids? You’re a bigger champ than I am. Here I am crying about Prime being he size of a spark at this moment.

    That would be terrible! Imagine how many people would end up with the wrong Prime!! I expect only I’d get it right.

    Tha would be awesome. I too think that the eyes on S1 head are a bit "strange" and replacing with the S2 head's eyes would turn out to be the perfect prime for me!! :)

    Anyone think you might be able to fit the MP10 head on MP44 ?
