Does anyone make 1/25th resin "skull" shift knobs? It seems to me that Parts by Parks did but I cannot find any source for those parts. Anybody help???

Last time I heard a post similar to this one I recall someone suggesting a visit to The Games Workshop which is a store that sells those really small Warhammer game figures, I believe that if you shop around the store you will probably end up with a good choice of ideas! You might be able to find different shapes and sizes for whatever your needs are.......... ;)

The Hotwheels 'RigorMotor' has two skull headlights on it, and they're plenty useful as shift knobs:

And you can't pass up the "2 for less than a buck" price anyway. :)

vw dave, thats exactly what i was going to add. i bought up a bunch of those hotwheels when they were around just for the skulls to use as shift knobs. it just so happens i was looking for a skull that size recently and i forgot about my stash of hotwheels ones, so i went to the lhs to see what they had. they had what were labeled "resin" skull knobs but they were obviously white metal. i bought a pack anyway and when i got home and started fiddling with one trying to clean it up, i remembered HEY i got some much better ones somewhere! when i found them sure enough: far better than the "resin" ones with a much better, more evil expression (like yours show so well) with only a bit of cleanup needed. though the plastic is kind of soft and hard to work, but not impossible.

and the price sure was right: i think i paid 50 cents each for the hotwheels, and there are two skulls per car, whereas the aftermarket part was something like 5$ for two poorly formed skulls.

What does this Hot Wheels Rigor Motor car look like? I'll go try to find some and it would sure be easier to find it if I know what I'm looking for. Thanks in advance.
