    This is a more G1-style face panel replacement for Toyworld Hardbone's headmaster face. This kit will come with 2 hot-swappable faces: a G1 toy style face with face plate, and G1 headmasters anime style face with mouth. It will also fix its G1 chest meter reading tabs to accurately reflect G1 stats if you place the head on a G1 headmaster toy, as supposed to the Toyworld version's even 5-5-5 stats.

    sorry, no, you will have to paint it yourself, which isnt too hard, i suck at painting myself and i just use markers (gundam markers to be precise, but sharpies may be good enough for this)

    next update should come some time next week

    Oooo very cool. I do like the faceplate but this will really finish off my modded Hardbone. Could probably use it as Highbrow too.....

    actually the test prints came in today.

    head sculpt is improved especially for the face mask version; its now less blocky than my previous first revision. but, still have trouble plugging it back to the headmaster figure so its still not quite ready yet

    this is going to take some more time, sorry guys....

    Shapeways material isn't that difficult to paint, just clean it, prime the shit out of it, and grab a brush

    update:

    head panel fits mini figure perfectly now........but cockpit fitting is not since the cockpit doesnt close fully now. a huge part of it has to do with the big ass (and useless) molded seat inside the cockpit blocking the way. will have to shave off some of the forehead relief detail to accomodate the cockpit fitting

    will post WIP pics this weekend with the alternate face (anime look with mouth)
