    Maybe... but my post seems to have vanished. Not sure if that's the board update or something else.

    Lets try this again:

    The Headmonsters have awoken from their dark slumber and rise from the ruins of Transylvanix IV to spread across the galaxy! Hijacking robot bodies for their own purposes they strike fear into hero and villain alike.

    I've considered doing a Zazorigun from Golderan. Maybe a Mike Sounders XIII from GaoGaiGar.

    Sideways is on the list, along with Armada Demolishor.

    As for beasts... It might be possible, but I'm probably not going to be the one to do it, at least not in the short term. That would require entirely new engineering for the whole face, and until I can get an in-home printer to prototype test, that's not really viable for my setup.

    Why not?

    [​IMG]
    Wheeljack - I couldn't get him to look right with short ears, so he isn't going to be able to wear the helmets of some of the larger figures. But I did sculpt thrusters on the back of his ears so your Titan Master will have an experimental Jetpack.

    [​IMG]
    Exhaust / Marlboro Wheeljack - He'll have the same helmet-issues, but now you can bring flavor country to any Titan.

    [​IMG]
    WFC Slipstream - You can never have enough femmebots, and this version isn't redundant next to Takara's recent release.

    [​IMG]
    WFC Arcee - And what's Slipstream without an arch rival to fight? Plus, if you've already got an old school Arcee, she works as a new character femmebot face, or a good match to any of Omnicron Arcee's redeco characters.

    I'm now up to more than sixty faceplates to choose from.

    Received my Tarn faceplate the other day, but haven't had a chance to paint it up or install it yet. Printed it in White Strong and Flexible, which looks to have washed out a bit of the detail (bit hard to tell before painting), but I figured that might happen.
    Glad to see you've given us such a wide variety of faces, especially the femmebots and some of the more off-the-wall options (Krang, the monsters, etc.). As long as people are chipping in with ideas, might I suggest an Acolyte of Unicron? It fits with them being anybots donning Unicron heads, plus you could slap one on Hardhead for a ersatz Cybertron Unicron.

    Unicron Cultist? Good suggestion!

    Some of the detail will be lost in WS&F, but before you paint it be sure and brush it off and run a toothpick through the crevices, the support material likes to hide in there and obscure detail you could otherwise make out.

    And now for something new... and by new, I mean from the '00s:

    Armada Sideways' Rook and Crosswise heads, and Demolishor! I did Cyclonus a ways back, but since he's in the 4-pack, he's here too:

    Sideways Rook
    Sideways Crosswise
    Demolishor
    Cyclonus
    Both Sideways Heads in a 2-pack
    All Four heads in a 4-pack

    I feel like Cyclonus would be awesome with a crazy smile since he was always laughing in the show. All in all though another spectacular set of heads.

    Thanks for the advice! This is my first experience with Shapeways product, so every little bit helps. Also got the NES Zapper in metallic; may do a bit of paint on it to give it the proper two-tone grey but it looks pretty good as-is. Thanks again for doing such awesome designs!
