Thanks guys, and so do I

I tried gluing the Lego pieces on and was having a hard time getting them both to line up properly. I decided to try twist ties instead. (I got the idea from pradhika indra's excellent wire work.) I figure these will be more forgiving and the hood should still hold in place in vehicle mode thanks to the flap behind the head.
I'll let them dry overnight and see how they turned out in the morning...

Thumbs up 2-24-12 Update

I used some Gundam pieces to make some connectors to hold the front of the jeep together. I used Apoxie Sculpt to keep the wires attached to the hood and to keep the front connectors in place. Later on I'll put some on the side connectors as well...

I'm hoping so. I'll have to try and figure out the best place to put the robot mode connector. I may even have to use a whole new one...
With the stock arms they probably wouldn't need to be very posable, but I've been considering replacing the arms all together...

Thumbs up Chest/shoulder piece connectors

I hope I can come up with something more articulated. I'm thinking of using Bionicle/Hero Factory arms. The hard part will be getting them to fit in alt mode...

Update: I just used some Lego Technic pieces to clip onto the bars that Hound's arms are connected to. I then glued those pieces onto the shoulder pieces and taped the chest pieces in place for now. I'm going to let them dry tonight, but I'm sure they'll need some added Apoxie Sculpt and probably more adjusting later...

Thanks! I might see if I can add small parts to cover those gaps later on...

I added a twist tie to the chest/front pieces. I plan on playing with the twist tie so I can lower both chest panels. The twist tie is currently hanging out the front of vehicle mode, but hopefully some arm mods will allow it to hid better. I'll probably have to paint it black, too.
I have to replace one of the shoulder clips that broke, but otherwise it now all stays together in robot mode!
