The Willy head, can it be bought seperate, or do you need the whole figure sprue to get it?

You have to buy a whole sprue, part #54496 (full body/Wild Willy type with winch & NOS bottle) or # 54531 (torso/Willy's Wheeler type).

The head is moulded better on the full figure type + doesn't have the screw hole in the back or the internal structure, but that is actually quite useful if you're doing this mod.

Thanks for the great tips :y: :y:

Carry on with those awsome figures :)

I'm only have the Hornet type driver in my collection, so time to by some figures.
Need some for my scale builds too :)

Started work on the driver figure for my Combine project, some of the colours/processes were the same for the Osbourne head/Willy torso drivers so it made (some) sense to do them at the same time - but being more simple they got finished first.

I did the Willy head/Osbourne body figures' faces at the same time as the Combine driver face too, but apart from eyebrows these won't get any more attention until I find a specific role for them.

Had these on eBay (UK) for 10 days, maybe I was a little ambitious with the prices to start with, but I dropped them 1 GBP a day up to the point I was only just going to break even after eBay fees, Paypal fees, packing materials & postage were taken into account.

I guess there's a reason why no other lefover drivers like this a have been seen before, despite the numbers of converted Osbourne figures - everyone else thinks it's a crap idea :(

Cool that someone set a price on your (willy) head (and body) :D :y:

I'm not sure I appreciate the retrospective upgrade to "professionally painted" though, it's not a claim I'd ever make for myself as there are people that do figure painting far, far better than me - for example Rob (IBIFTKH) on TB, and he just does it for fun ...

More Mezco Osbourne figures - I won't say they were a great price, but they were an OK price, and the Jack figures don't come up very often any more, at any price. Not really sure why I got them as I still haven't done anything with the 3 last 3 I did the head swappery on :whistle:

Full figure Willy drivers from Modelsport were the cheapest/quickest way I could get Willy heads at the moment - 3 for head swaps with the Osbourne figures above, 3 because I regret selling my Air Cav, Lumberjack and Stunt Car Racer Willys, and 1 for spare .. I had better get a move on with these as the weather is turning very autumnal :)

Define "looking", these were on eBay UK (but with postage available to most of the civilised world) on a 30 day BIN listing, I had a search set up ("osbourne figure -buffy -bendable -keyring -10" -marvel -spiderman -12" ", European Union) so had an email notification the day after the lot was listed (and the following day)... even so I needed 3 days thinking time before I bought them ;)
