    Wouldn't the head be better if the autobot side didn't have a mouth?

    Honestly, it works either way. The American Cartoon had a mouth while the Japanese Headmasters version looked more like the toy.

    Stop being picky about the mouth. Were pulling here for these to be made bigger.

    Ok, I've been checking out both the US and Japanese 'toon images for this and I think the Japanese anime style looks much better.

    I'm getting ready to work on this in the next day or so and I just wanted to get some feedback first. I'll share the progress here soon once I get going on it. Then we can figure out who is interested in a cast of it and go from there.

    And I do apologize to those who purchased this figure to find that tiny head. I still can't believe they thought it was passable (looks too "Beetlejuice" for me). lol

    Can't wait to see this how it turns it out. I will for sure be one of the first to orders these heads.

    No thanks.



    So has anybody seriously committed to making a proper transforming head yet? EDIT: N/M, it looks like hXcpunk23 has taken up the challenge.

    It's OK if people want to make different versions - whoever makes the best one with the best price will get the orders.

    EDIT: Then again, it IS pretty low to come swooping into a thread and steal the idea right out from under those who were making it first.

    Yep, and if one chooses to do this, they need not try to sell it here.

    If you build your own from scratch or kitbash, feel free to use the Commissioners Listing and Feedback forum.

    ...why, exactly?

    People sell DIRECT CASTS of other TF parts on here freely, so I'm having trouble understanding why selling the original head made bigger would be an issue all of a sudden.

    I think because FunPub actually comes after people for repro-ing there work. Hasbro can do the same, but they don't bother, so the site can let those that do repro Hasbro stuff, slide.

    Been working on this on and off today. I should have some WIP up either later tonight or tomorrow.

    I'm sticking more to the Japanese anime style (and similar to the toy). This will not be an upscaled FunPub head.

    It just doesn't seem right to have to pay for a custom head for an exclusive toy that was desirable not just for the character, but for the unique head gimmick, even if it was far too small. If anything, FP should provide us with replacement heads at their cost, or refund unhappy customers. But I digress...
