Well, it's not major. But I would prefer to make it as neat as possible for my line up.

It's the hemispheres on the right hand side.

It's all hypothetical, at this point anyway. Since I don't actually own it. It all depends on me winning the Auction.

Has anyone on this board successfully customized a deerstalker cap onto a Talons Tom head?

I'd think using another hatted Tom Head would make that easier; are they not swappable onto the Talons body? (Not home, can't check)

Basically any of the hatted Tom heads would give you the under-hat hair you'd need; Probably easier than cutting and sculpting. You could probably cut and sculpt the fedora into the deerstalker too.

Well, of course you have, Tomfan!! :)

Did you sculpt the hat yourself, or did you poach it from somewhere?

(Amazing job, by the way.)

Good thinking. It hadn't occurred to me to start with the hatted version.

I split a Pyramids 4th torso today and lt has a neck post. I hope the Talons 4th would have the same but as its a 3rd Doctor base its not a neckpost head.

It was just sculpted from scratch.
