    Some extra info. The head has light piped eyes. The design shown is a prototype. I'm making some adjustments, but the overall look will not change, from what is shown.

    Also, for long time TFW2005 members, this project has a special guest fan artist, Jesslyn. She sculpted the initial model for me. Some of you may know her as Weewoo! :)  Below is one of her best pieces from the good old days.

    I remember when those Car Robot CG's were beyond awesome back in 2001-2002. Fan made CG transformer models weren't as common as they are now. Especially not in that art quality back then.

    Is Orion still able to transform back to vehicle mode with this head upgrade?

    Ordered! I wish it would come with new windshields too. Then I would have nothing left to bitch about this figure (well the reds and blues could be deeper but only paint will fix that)

    Neat. A big improvement over Orion's ho-hum stock head sculpt.

    Yes it does. :)  No point to make the head, if it can't transform. I did have to sacrifice some of the original look that Jesslyn sculpted for the new head. Her design was very comic accurate. The major changes made was the forehead crest shape, which was changed to another comic accurate look, and the antennas where shortened down to fit in truck mode.


    Thanks! Yes to Nemesis Orion. We will wait until one of us has the final version of Nemesis Orion in hand before announcing the recolored head. I could produce the black version along side this regular one, but we need to confirm no mold changes were made to the repaint.

    Sorry, these are strictly for ToyDojo.com.



    Here is a comparison pic showing the default head, next to the P.A.X. head.

    Absolutely loving the look! Thanks for popping in and giving us more info :D . Do you guys plan on cleaning things up a bit? The features look a little.... soft in my opinion but other than that, this is exactly the head I was looking for on Orion :bowdown:

    The head shown is a rough prototype. The finished version will be polished up. :)

    I was hoping for something like this...

    I think the original head fits that body better. This one looks good, but I would use it somewhere else.
