Hello everyone,

I thought I should make a separate posting covering this question. Who here would be interested in my alien heads? I have a few private messages both from JD and RS forums asking me for cast of these heads I have been making the past week now. I want to get a feeling of who wants them, how many I would have to make and see if I could provide enough. So if you want your own Minbari or another alien head I make, please sound off here. Also, if you have a request for an alien head, I need to know if you want it in a ball joint or peg head and what gender. Pictures are always helpful.

Thanks everyone,

Jedi_Master_Ben

I'm sure there would be several I'd be interested in Ben.  What are you thinking you will be charging on them?

I guess I should be more specific - I'm thinking of maybe a Twi'lek male head or two.  I don't know what would be best, a ball joint probably?

Hey everyone,

I am glad this idea is picking up steam. I am just thrilled that I can provide something back to the custom community. I would have never thought to take on this project if I did not have the backing of the community. I think this experience will be better than working for Hasbro, at least I know my sculpting will be appreciated. As for charging for each custom cast head, I was planning on the first head $5.00 (this will include shipping) and $3.00 for additional head. The more heads purchased, greater the savings on shipping. I am not really out to make a lot of money on this, just to cover my expenses for materials. I am really having fun with this. Just in the past week, I managed to sculpt 4 heads (one finished and 3 WIP). I mean come on, where else can I get to sculpt the Cheyang head for Farscpe and then turn around and sculpt the seer Aughra from Dark Crystal the next? This is Awesome!!! Thanks everyone for allowing the opportunity to express myself here ;D ;D ;D.

Keep checking this thread for progress images of each head. And if you want an alien head that you do not see on the list yet, send me a pm or post your request here and I will add it to the list. The list is just for me a map so I know what head to sculpt next. I would like to sculpt as many sci-fi heads as possible (even star trek ;D).

Thanks again,

Jedi_Master_Ben

I want a Minbari woman head and a Verpine head. It would be cool if I could get the head of Jabe from the second episode of the new Doctor Who series.



or Moxx the Balhoon

Hey those are great looking aliens! I was not going to follow Dr. Who because I thought I would be lost with out seeing all the older episodes. But if this a sign of things to come from the show, then I will start watching it and take notes. Thanks for the post, I will add them to the list.

These aliens were shown on the second episode "end of the world" of the new season on the SciFi channel. I have all ten or twelve episodes on DVD directly from the BBC broadcasts last year that havn't been shown yet on SciFi. The first episode "Rose" explains everything about the Doctor and is a good primer for the show. I could burn you a copy if your interested maybe as a trade for a head or two?

Wow, great headsculpts Ben!  The minute details are really captured well, I can't wait to see what else you will be doing!

I think some sort of "neutral" alien headsculpts, like a Klatoonian (Barada without his bandana), or a neutral Nikto head sculpt, etc would make for great army (or would it be "thug") building.
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.
