    Hi all, I just finished this guy, and still a little nervous about transforming him until everything sets up, but I just had to post a couple pics tonight.

    This guy recived a balljoint head, rotating bicepts, and pivioting elbows using neoshifter joints, as well as having a reshelled the original legs with Universe Cyclonus parts including balljoint hips, rotating theighs, and pivoting knees. I also modded the feet for more movement. Also, his little sharky arms now have balljoint shoulders, elbows, and wrists.

    I also added LEDs to his sharky eyes,extended his dorsal fin, extended his chin spikes, and gave him antennas. I also made a new poseable mace/tail, and gave him a repaint.
