    Hey guys!
    It's been quite a time since I've done anything here.
    Yesterday evening/night I started to work on a new project.
    I took my RID Armorhide repaint (which looks like G1 Brawl), Activators Grimlock and started to give the old G1 mold some better articulation!
    For now I only got the legs, and I'm really satisfied with the result.
    Now I'm working on the arms and shoulders. They're a bit fiddly, but I think I have a good idea how everything should work.

    When he's done, he won't be able to transform anymore, but that doesn't annoyes me.

    Pity it won't transform, but I can still dig it. Oh yeah, the reason RiD Armorhide looks like Brawl is because it's a redeco of the original Brawl. How handy! Not being mean or anything, I'm just pointing out the hilarity.

    Thanks!

    Hehehe, yeah I know that. I repainted my RID Armorhide to look like G1 Brawl :D 
    x) That was the reason I bought Armorhide from a fellow member here ;) 
    :D 
    Anyway, thanks for the comment! =D

    Shame about the non-transforming bit, but I love the idea and it's looking great so far. I'll be keeping an eye on this! Are you planning to do the same with the other Combaticons?

    Thanks!
    Well, I only have this single guy from the combaticons.
    He's also the only G1 mold I have.
    But I'd like to see other members doing this stuff on the other Combaticons! :D

    Update:
    I finally got around to have some spare time and managed to attach the shoulders and arms.
    They're still in a very very rough shape and have to be fitted with the original parts.

    First post updated with new WIP picture! :)

    Adding a neck joint should be pretty easy!

    Here is a link to the tutorial.

    @Anti-Venom
    Looks easy! I just need some spare balljoints... or I have to rip some old parts apart.
    :D 
    Hopefully I got some tiny tiny ones...
