    Loving the TR Scourge.
    Love the TR Scourge face sculpt
    Hate the oversized TR Scrouge head

    The head sculpt seems oversized.

    I think it would be perfect if the head was just a little thinner (when viewed from the front) and a lot thinner (when viewed from the side).

    Solution: Minor mod

    1. Remove legs from assembly and separate Fracas from face sculpt.
    2. Remove arms. Cut arm ball pegs on Fracas' torso. Sand Fracas torso side to make it thinner. Swap Fracas' left and right arm. Glue to sides of Fracas' torso.

    Voila!! Much improved, thinner, skinnier head scuplt.

    Huh, I actually liked the stock sized head. Either way this works too

    I also like the stock size but I really like this mod too. Might use it on my "Scourge" and keep the stock size for my sweeps.

    I prefer your modded version to the standard "wide" head. Does the headmaster still transform?

    Pretty good. But I just took the arms and legs off mine. The head seems somewhat proprotioned to be "de-headmastered" and looks good from all angles without the titanmaster's arms and legs. It's in scale with his body and the size of RotS Cyclonus' head.

    Without legs and with arms glued to the 'torso'? I highly doubt it.
    This looks nicely effective and makes the head proportions much better. Awesome job!

    It looks pretty good.

    Another solution I found that looks decent, but not permanent, is to just pop the arms off and plug them into the gun.

    No. Step 2 eliminated all chances of that.

    That was my first inclination...but I felt the headshape felt odd...so I glued the arms on to give it a little more mass.
