Love him or hate him, after all these years, we finally have the IG Sniper head.
Thank you KREXX for this gift.

besides, I feel like i already paid for that same sculpt from the ARAH club. not interested in it at all. It's a good sculpt, it's just not for me.

Such detail! I really think this will be a knockout when painted. Now we need to come up with a formula for his body. Preferably a near-LBC with easy to obtain parts so everyone can have a version of this guy!

And this is only the head. The main project is the female blank which is getting more parts.

If this goes smoothly, I think we'll have "proof of concept" that O-ring parts can be made successfully. In the future, as we consider new projects, maybe we should have more discussion rather than just vote. The torso got 13 votes, and the head got 12, but in a small group as this, the difference of 1-2 votes isn't much. I wonder if we could come to a consensus without pissing anyone off?

Could I propse the possibility of making replacement parts for vehicles? Like Snowcat steering wheel and wiper blad, or the hissle prongs to the MCC large turret?

pretty cool. I of course would not use It for a sniper. instead I think it has the look of a biohazard scientist that could be infected with compound Z. just my thoughts.

Yes, this should be considered. A lot of us want many of the same things but not at the same time. We want the chance to get all the things we want but have to decide collectively what we want first, which is the hard part...

I could just put this on a Canvention Iron Grenadier body

I presume black would be the likely color

Great outcome, nicely detailed!
I'm looking forward to using it, I already got several ideas: adding a helmet, a visor etc.
Well done, Krexx!

I wonder if we can request the base color? Black would help prevent paint wear at the neck. Same if we fit a helmet, too.

What's the schedule for Angelforge to cast these and make them available for purchase?

Shouldn't be any harm in asking. Squeaky wheel gets the grease

DO want. Sell me one straight up. Like someone else said, I feel like I already paid for this - but still want it.

I already got my Iron Grenadier Sniper head (AngelForge ships fast), and I posted a photo on Flickr how it fits on an '88 Iron Grenadier body. Not well enough to be an LBC, or at least not well enough to fit in with the regular IGs side-by-side. I'll bet it fits a Battle Corps era torso better (I'd like to try '93 Law when I have more time, or something with a collar).

Interesting.

How well would it work on the Nightviper / Convention IG body?

The IG Sniper head looks a lot better on the 2005 Iron Grenadier body. The shoulder pads bulk up the upper body around the neck, and the whole figure looks more balanced. However, the neck socket is really loose. I had to use the Force to keep him from looking down in the photo. A few coats of paint might do it, or the usual methods of tightening a neck (plumber's tape, hot glue, etc).

Yes. Thank you. This is very interesting indeed

I use a tuft of a cotton ball in the neck to tighten my figures up. Wont gum up the works like paint or tape.
