In need of a Deadpool head that will fit on a Shield Agent body. Any suggestions?

The series 6 seems to be a little too small and I don't like the look of the HML two pack Deadpool.

There are no other DP heads. Maybe a shrunk down Bowen sculpt.

Best if you check this out. Type Deadpool in the first field and Shield Agent or face off Punisher in the second field. Any variation of the figures names will give different results. This site has somewhere just under a thousand DP's. You can actually check how each head looks. Click on one you like and read the recipe. Unless you want to sculpt your own.

Well, there is the MS if he wants a slightly oversized look. The Bowen heads that I have had all seem to be a better fit for a smaller buck than a Shield Agent, IMHO.

I was hoping maybe someone was casting a good custom DP head or something. I have seen some on customs here that were casts but not from either of the ML Deadpools. I contacted one of the customizers about one of them but he couldn't remember where he got it. -sigh-
it was the one on the ACCustomFigures DP. it would be perfect.

Unfortunately, the DP head you are asking about came from DMC who has closed up shop. That particular head was the third DP head in his inventory when his casting shop was open. As far as Bowen casts, Kyle Robinson did the only one large enough to fit that base body and he seems to be ansent from the customizing scene. This is DMC's cast...

I started making some videos for casting your own products. First one is the DIY Pressure Pot tutorial. Here I show you what you need to make your own pressure pot.

Next up, I'll be doing a video on prepping your pieces for molding, building the mold box, etc. and of course the actual casting of the parts.

Enjoy!!
