    Dunno about this one, but thought I'd post it to see what you guys think. Let me know your thoughts on this guy folks!

    Also finished my FOC Shockwave with the added inner leg panels-

    I'm not feeling it completely but the new head and the basic colors give it a little life.

    And could someone please do a tutorial for Shockwaves legs?

    ditto, what are those wings from?
    and with the springer head is that with primer on it? becuase it half resembles a prototype shot.
    im enjoying how FoC prime is getting modded into all these other characters, despite not being cheap.

    Thanks for all the comments. His wings are from a Pursuit of Cobra Skydive figure, but they were also re-packed (imagine THAT, from a Hasbro figure....) with a POC Ripcord.

    @ Ryoku- For the Shockwave legs, you're just going to take a soldering iron to the knees of a junker Shockwave, heat the pin and pull the legs apart. Take the outer panel and dremel a hole in the part where they attached at the knee/pin, but do not dremel all the way through. Place a small dab of quick set epoxy in the hole created. Use a very tiny neo magnet (found at most Radio Shack's) and place it in the hole you created- make sure it sits flush to the outer rim of the hole. Make sure you do a pre test on the magnet to the knee joint of the Shockwave that you're going to use it on - do this before you epoxy it in the leg hole. To test polarity of the magnet- you want the side thats attracted to the knee joint facing out- and the other side will go in the hole you created on the other leg plate. Let the leg panel sit for 10 min. with the magnet/epoxy in place, then magnetically attach- simple, right? lol :)
