    He guys after starting my Arcee/Paramedic I really thought this would work!
    But soon found out that I liked my second option better, thus suited Daniel :) 

    YOUTUBE VIDEO REVIEW:
    ...(soon)...

    I have no gun in the right colorsheme to match but for now the white E.OP is a stand-in or might receive a paintjob to go with the suit ;) 

    C&C Welcom ENJOY!

    UPDATE2:
    After a few comments and suggestions I really couldn't let it go without paint.
    I've made a digibash colorscheme and I'm about to start painting!
    UPDATE3:
    Finally completed thnx guys for pushing me to paint this thing ;) [/B]

    UPDATE4:
    Finally found something to use as a canopy... I call DONE!!


    [PS. Btw I already got plans for Arcee V3 just wait till I get more parts!]

    Glad you stuck to your guns and went for it!

    I hoppe you consider repainting the Exo Suit to a more traditional EDC color scheme in the future though so it looks less Daniel decapitated one of the speedia dudes and stole their body ;)

    One of my favorite paint-tricks is that if you paint it a very light gray you'll have MUCH better covering power than you will with pure-white, even if it's nearly-white. And the old cartoon suits were always a little off-white anyway.

    Or....you can just wait ;)

    Hey Man! FANTASTIC update to Daniel's exosuit! :thumb  Now he actually LOOKS like he could be a contender instead of just "under foot". hehe

    Awhile ago I was considering making a "micromasters" style transformable exosuit but I think I'll just stare longingly at yours instead!:drool:

    Masking tape and Krylon Fusion spray paint are easily available and would make painting him white and doing some easy brush details a quick job. It would make a huge difference if he was colored right. At least different from the base figure colors.
    As it is, this doesn't look complete to me at all. Its just an odd head swap and a gun that fits, waiting for a paint job to bring the idea to full bloom.

    thnx will do my best...

    headswap? + gun??

    DUDE SERIOUSLY...
    this was some major bashin' if you know the original....
    (no clue what it was called, so I can't Google it for ya :( )
    otherwise I would posted a before pic ;) 

    Specially for my buddy thyvipera: :tongue: 
    Anyways I chopped into the cyberkey thing like a maniac but precisely right to fit the frontwheel (an rearwheel from E.Arcee) + added a peg inside the wheelcyclindrical space for the homemade pin to go through... then heated the (yellow/translucent wheel) pins and removed, then trimmed down the stem to allow the E.Arcee (front 2x) wheels fit inside the wheel arches...

    I think the total mods are 5-7hrs (if you do it first time + improvise as I did)

    Yeah that digibash looks relly good. I say go for it G! I guarantee you'll start something with that and see it popping up all over the place.

    Looks sweet! This may be beyond the scope of your project, but I think it'd be cool if he had some windows on his torso where you could see some more of Daniel inside...

    hehe... well first of all my goal was to only use the head, so that I can keep my PVC daniel completly intact and swap out whenever I want :D 

    and two there just isn't enough room inside... thnx for the suggestion ;) 

    but I might make en glass dome/cone/helmet.. just haven't planned it yet
