    I did mention those parts as well in my post but you most likely didn’t understand what I was talking about. I did not explain it very well.

    This isn't mine, but it's worth sharing. I can't even credit the owner since I saw it on Facebook with no credit given. If you know who this belongs to, please tag them.

    Any idea how they chromed the thighs and crotch? Is it as simple as one of those chrome markers or did they actually plate the parts somehow? And is that a one-off custom head or something being sold in a kit?

    And yeah….. this is more like what the figure should have looked like out of the box.

    No marker will do that. They found a place that will do personal vac-metal or electroplating... or they have a friend.

    I like how the bigger head makes his arms look skinnier.

    I'm surprising myself saying this, and maybe it's just because I don't think the quality of that electroplating looks very good, but I think the paint TT went with on MP-44S looks better than this.

    I really want that toy head. Is there anyone who’s making one for sale? The one in the above picture looks really good.

    CSC's is more of a Masterpiece aesthetic head in design, while this Weibo one looks like an upscale of the G1 head but with different-shaped eyes for some reason (face looks quite pinched).
