    For those who haven't seen this yet:

    I bought this head kit from a forum member. Bought a fresh, new Takara Perceptor to put it on.

    I haven't decided if I'm painting the eyes blue yet.

    don't know, the head just doesn't fit lol, it looks nice, but doesn't fit the mold in my opinion, but how much did you pay for it?

    Not bad, the sculpt on that head is well done, but I too think I prefer the original.

    It's from the same guy who made the custom ironhide/ratchet heads. He was selling those at ebay for around $100 a set!(Now the price drop to around $50, still, expensive stuff)

    Yeah, I like the old head better. He's still a ways from cartoon accurate but the sculpt of the face does look official.

    I like that new head - never much cared for the old one, personally. Of course, I'm still kicking myself that I missed out on e-Hobby's anime Astrotrain . . .

    I love the original head but that one looks very nice, add some blue on the eyes!
