Wondering what to do with those extra Titans Return Titan Masters? Did you really want a proper Nightbeat or Siren? Just want to do a simple mod to improve an older Generations figure? Well, I've got something that anyone can do! I present, Titan Returns Nightbeat!

The color on the head is a shade darker than the figure, but it looks pretty good in person.

"What extra head? What do you mean? What is so darn creepy?"

Now, I know what you're thinking. "What was that dream last night with all those women throwing little pickles at me?" (Oh, wait, was that just me watching Real Genius last night as I fell asleep.) What you are really thinking is how you'd like to further perpetuate confusion over who Nightbeat and Siren really are, as far as heads go. Well, fear not, because Titan Master Siren looks pretty good too.

I kinda wish there was a Siren in Generation Nightbeat's colors to better match that head, but this was a neat way to go.

I almost hesitate to call this a mod. It's really simple if anyone wants to try it. Generations Nightbeat's head is just in place with a mushroom peg. All it takes is the removal of two screws from the back of Nightbeat, pulling apart the back and chest piece. Pop out the head, and there's a nice little socket there for Titan Masters.

Now, the empty socket is just a bit bigger than the Titan Masters' heads, so for these pics they are just resting. I hope to create some styrene wedges to hold the head in place. In the meantime, some folded up paper or card stock should do the trick.

Cheers!

This is good. I was wondering about something like this being doable, its too bad that Nightbeat TR is so flippin hideous.


EDIT: i suppose this is Nightbeat and Siren having gotten headmodels swapped in G1 redone in TR. THE Siren Head does look more like how I know Nightbeat. That said, this Nightbeat Head does NOT look like Siren to me.

I have found a guy that makes an adapter for the new Titan Headmaster to fit on Generations Nightbeat! Check out the web site and video links, looks great!

Nice! I don't know if I am going to do that or not, but I am tempted. What else are we going to do with extra heads?
