Great work and pics. Love the in-progress shots. Drilling the stacks was the first thing I did to this little guy too.

you could always just modify the wheels so they stayed on the hips in bot mode

Ah yep, progress shots are so fun for me to look at, so when i can share them I try to! Oh and you modded this lil fella too? Do you have a photo of him at all that I could see?

Oh man, good idea Bacon, that totally could work hey. I think I need to buy a spare little legends prime to do some mod sacrificing practice on.

Ah I'm still new to the extensive range of figures out there hey, so I had to look up the ths 02 prime to see what you meant. "alt mode is horrible" ha ha! Oh that's a funny (yet sad) line. But a great bot mode really takes the cake hey. Well I hope you like how this little dude ends up!

What the heck Snake?! I can't believe they're that much? Well I guess you're actually paying for the 'service' more than the item itself. Like if you bought a single grain of sand off amazon. It would still have postage and 'handling' prices they have to work in to it even though a grain of sand should be pretty much 1c to buy. Ha!

Ok I don't know where the grain of sand comparison came from. Anyway! The offer to buy and send you one still stands, holler if ya want!

I'm looking forward to see how this turns out.

Oh man new arms and legs would be SO cool! I wonder if someone has actually done a scanned and shrunk down MP prime before with shapeways? Oh gosh imagine that!

Update #1 - 17 october

UPDATE #1 - 17 OCTOBER

Here's an update for y'all, last night I finished the other knee ball joint and it's working well. (geez working on this is sooo teeny tiny! Dremelling little joints send them flicking and flying out of my fingers all the time, ha!).



I also craft knife'd the edges of the thighs to slightly match closer to the shape of a real MP prime's legs.



I shaved down the inside edges of the side tanks on the shin pieces, this gives them a little more spacing to allow thigh movement.



I then dremelled out the waist piece, giving more rotation room for the top of the thighs, which now allows full forward, backward and side rotation of 180 degrees. Yeah!



And best of all, Prime will be able to pull of poses like this:
(which is sorely needed in prime figures I feel. I've never liked the brazel disregard to the need for him to be able to kick himself in the head).



That's all for now till the next update, later!

This looks good! I would take you up on your offer, but I can't buy stuff over the internet yet (damn!) and my mum won't, becuase my birthday's coming up and stuff. That, and it's a relative stranger over the internet
