    So, I just received and built Kabaya Fortress Maximus. Quite awesome already, but I wanna add some poseability to it. Joints I'm looking to add are:

    Knee Hinges
    Sideways/Outward Shoulders
    Bicep Swivel

    Looking for some advice from anyone who would be willing to help or are doing a similar project. Thanks!

    The kit is about voyager sized (a head taller than TFP RID Prime). My first thought was to use the shoulders and knee joints from a Classics voyager Prime but since trying to find an original is going to be expensive, a KO might be in order. Other than that, I think any blocky and/or chunky TF from the Energon & Cybertron lines might work as well (since some figures from these line tend to have some pretty big & sturdy hinges). Just keep an eye out for figures with block shoulder pads since most of the time it allows outward shoulder movement while the shoulder armor itself remains in place (since this is most likely what you're going to need for Fort Max).

    Hmm, I do have a cybertron Menasor doing sod all, maybe I could try fitting it inside the interior of the shoulder pieces for fit as that way it will still look as it did in the factory in outer appearance.
