For Loose heads, check out the Junkyard: http://forums.TFormers.com/talk/index.php?showtopic=46468

 

As for pre-cast heads, the only place I can think of offhand is http://www.alyoshascorner.com. Though, the site is currently offline.

 

Aoi

 

 

I don't know of any sites for pre-cast heads, but I'm sure there are lots of folks out there who have spare heads from other projects. So, there's bound to be someone out there with close to what you need. Also, some knockoff TFs might have the parts you need, but be carefull: some knockoffs are made of inferior plastic, and they may not be a 100% fit to your project. (I ran into this when I used a knock-off G1 Silverbolt to repair my original, and the parts didn't fit!)

 

As for making your own, the difficulty largely depends upon the scale: larger heads are generally easier to do than smaller ones, due to the amount of fine details involved. if you're not sure of your skills, you may want to see if someone would consider helping you or even doing a head sculpt for you.

Okay...

 

 

after a six-month hiatus (due to lack of internet capability), I'M BACK!!! And now....with my OWN COMPUTER!!!

 

Also, in the next couple of months, I will be obtaining a digicam. I already have a scanner/printer/coffeemaker/combaticon, so I can now put more of my stuff online. (yes, I know all about the submission rules to TFans now...)

 

But also, start looking forward to some new articles by me, as well as some-step-by step pics.

 

As usual, I wish all of you the best of luck on your projects!

Five things you should NOT do while kitbashing a transformer!

 

they are:

 

5) talk on the phone (even the headset types or bluetooth variety; it's a distraction, especially when you're working with a rotary tool.)

 

4) get into an argument with anyone (distraction)

 

3) Flirt with your girlfriend/boyfriend/other (more distractions)

 

2) Look out the window at some girls (or guys) going by. (ESPECIALLY if you're doing #2)

 

1) EAT. (greasy hands make for sloppy work, y'know.)

 

 

But in all seriousness, concentration is vitally important in kitbashing, for both project quality AND personal safety. If you can't work on a project w/o distractions, then it's probably best to wait until another time. (And if the distraction in question argues that your hobby is stupid, then wait until THEY'RE doing their "hobby", and "gently" remind them of what they said earlier. If they say "this is different", then you know that the person is full of BS, and really needs to be put into a straightjacket. :tftongue )
