    Many thanks @The Madness for creating the Buzzworthy-matched head. With this head, the figure truly is a mini-Masterpiece and my decisive Kup. The original head seems like a sad joke by comparison.

    These look amazing, great work! I was curious however, would you ever repurpose these for different Kup molds?

    Hey everyone. Sorry for not posting in the thread much, things have been pretty full-on. I have added people who have posted in this thread to the list, though. Please be aware, this is not for new orders, but any leftovers I have. I still need to await confirmation that orders have safely arrived before I will know solid numbers.

    Today marks the end of batch 5 and other than a few special pieces I still need to finalise, all orders are done and the last of the run just needs to be sent out. Let me just say, it has been quite an experience and I sincerely hope people enjoy their items. I will be sending out the remaining orders this week, but please be aware my workload has increased again and I've had the added inconvenience of a car accident that has temporarily taken away my only transport. I'm limited to posting only a couple of orders a day as I will be walking from home to the post office.

    Yes! One of the planned advantages of the 'block' system is the connection points can be changed, while retaining the same head features. TR/Legends Kup is a good candidate, but it may not be sized well for Sargent Kup.

    I have heard of using Future to tighten joints but never before used as a topcoat along with Pledge. If you do not mind my asking, which is better to use between the two? Do you just apply it with a brush after your paint is dry?

    Yes, I just poured a little Future into a small bowl and painted it on with a brush once the paint was dry then left it to cure for a couple of days.

    Me too. I'd like to order one each for Blurr and Kup, but I'd prefer them unpainted.

    Took forever to get around to installing these after receiving them (digging up a tiny flat head screwdriver for Kup) but Blurr and Kup's new heads are fabulous! :D

    Blurr's is a subtle but welcome change, and Kup's is like comparing to a horse-faced gargoyle when you look at the new one vs. stock.

    They look great! How hard was it to swap Blurr’s head?

    Blurr's stock head threw me off at first, since I thought I would need a pin punch to undo his shield/car front portion to get the head out, but with a hair dryer to ease the plastic and by angling the neck after pulling it back far enough, the entire stock head just fell out. The printed head had me slightly worried, so I ended up heating both it and the neck area on the body before "gently" pushing a few times to get it into the ball socket proper (there's a bit of light scuffing from pushing the white printed neck joint into/against the blue ball socket). The light blue painted portion of Blurr's printed head is loose/detachable now. I may end up gluing it down if it ever bothers me enough.

    If it's useful to anyone else, Kup's stock head was much easier to swap out. Hair dryer -> Poke from below with precision flat head screwdriver -> POP! Hair dryer again to ease up the neck area plastic -> Push printed head into place.

    I see, I’ll have to be very careful as well. Thanks very much for the info.
