MR71 vs Architect

Post by 3acidrainryan on Fri May 19, 2017 3:05 am

Is there a difference in the MR71 and Architect heads? I just ordered a head and body on ebay...but the body is way lighter color than the head. Could be a different body all together. Just looking for some info from the pros. Thanks in advance.

Yes.  I will take a picture and explain, shortly...

The architect's head is weathered and has black hair, while Mr 71's head is clean and has dark metallic gray hair.

Thanks for the info....I guess I bought the MR71 then. Do you know if the body of 71 is clean and is it a tad lighter than the head?

Yeah, the body is clean. It's not painted like the head so it is going to be a slight (and I mean minute) shade off than the painted head, but really not noticably off --unless you're OCD or something and need the body to be painted exactly like the head.

Interesting to see the difference in paint apps at the top edge of the beard line. I like the tighter pointed zig-zags of the architect.

Hadn't noticed that.  You would think it would be the other way around.  I mean if he's weathered and dirty, why would he care about the sharpness of his beard line. While if he was cleaning up, he'd go to a pro barber and get his beard "sharpened".  And why would his hair have a metallic sheen?  Is he going to some rave? Wink

Maybe it's all about yin and yang. Contrast creates balance.

I don't interpret the edge so literally.
To me, the more defined, darker edge makes the beard look fuller, while the fade on the other gives it the illusion of being neatly kept.
