    What did you change to get this effect? More Clear plastic on the back? Does his eyes still look lit without a direct light source?


    Looks excellent btw, I'd be down for the Blue eyes.

    I'd get either set but prefer the blue also.

    So, I haven't been on the boards in forever! :lol 

    I still only have Streetwise & Groove. I'm hoping to get the remaining three, but I'm living alone for the first time ever, and don't have much money left over after rent comes out.

    (Also, slightly off-topic, but still kinda on-topic, since the search function works about as well as it always has:

    Is there a new TFC combiner in the works, or was this the most recent one?)

    This is the most recent one. TFC hasn't announced anything other than their attempts to enter the masterpiece market. A pity, as they are not strong molds facing very stiff competition. I wouldn't be surprised if they skipped them and did something else.

    Apologies if this has already been covered, but does anyone know if reprolabels are planning on doing sticker sets for Red Cross and Verti-Aid?

    would you guys want both hydrant and prometheus or just prometheus?

    To get more light diffusion I sculpted a brick for better lack of terms to set behind the exposed part of the back of the head that flows over the actual stems for the eyes. hm Ill post a pic later cause its hard to explain I think. There is a lot of hollow space on the inside of the head and the part that is exposed to light is very thin so it really has no hope of carrying the light through to the eyes. the part I added fills in the gap and can carry ambient light much better.

    the shots I posted while there is a light source behind him (the desk lamp) its not actually directed at the eyes

    attached is a pretty low level ambient light pic with my version of the light piping so you can see what you get. Just natural light coming through the window still a big difference.

    Just the prometheous head really. It's the gap between the brow and top of light piping that's bothersome for me. The hollow space.


    I don't have them in individual bot modes enough to have the hydrant head bother me that much.

    I came up with some weapon combinations. The first one uses four of the five (not Hydrants). The other two uses all of the weapons.

    I apologize for picture quality and lighting. I only have my cell phone camera to use. Also, a warning if you do the second or third combination. Stress marks will occur on the red peg holes of Hydrant's gun

    Mainly just Prom. I think Hydrant's head looks excellent as is. Some back of the head pics would be great, thanks.

    Hey ya'll...

    I'm having a serious problem with this figure. I can't get him back into gestalt mode...

    I don't have pictures of the problem, but I think I can describe it. You see...Reprolabels has not made labels for First Aid and Blades and I won't put Defensor back together until I have that task completed.

    Has anyone else dealt with this design flaw?

    I did ask Reprolabels in early June about stickers for the last two figures. They responded that they do intend to produce those in the next few months. So, I guess we're in standby for now, but they will come eventually.

    I know of what you speak...hopefully very soon we will all be able to rectify this design flaw and restore Defensor to his majestic glory!

    Custom Face

    Custom Face for Prometheus! Makes him not chubby anymore. Curtesy of Dr. Killinger.

    Yup, that's Hercule's face. I bought a "Rage of Hercules" upgrade set for my TFC Hercules, so I had an extra face.

    Did you have to mod the face in any way to get it to work?

    Yes lots of cutting involed on both faces to get them to fit, but once cut, everything sits flush and glues right in place.

    I still need to grab some HQ pics for that guy.

    I'm considering getting Prometheus and I have a regular Hercules face. How much would a custom job like this normally cost?
