    Taking a 10-inch gundam I found for $1 and a White Tiger Megazord, I've added the following poa:

    * 4 points in each leg.
    -2 at the hip, 1 in the thigh, 1 at the knee
    * 360 degree swivel at the waist
    *4 points in each arm.
    -2 in the shoulders, 1 swivel in the bicep, 1 at the elbow
    * Movie 1 leader Prime hands

    I had to extend the torso to accommodate the waist swivel. I found that the gundam and megazord parts married together fairly well with little effort.

    Update: 5/21/2012

    Only thing left to do is attach the right hand, prep work, and then paint. I felt that I originally had cut a few corners and so decided to rework the arms to make them source accurate. I installed a ratchet joint in the forearm and then put the hands on a ball joint.

    Tiger mode turned out pretty decent and I'm happy with it. The front arms work best if bent at the elbow but can be straightened out to be show accurate.

    Looks amazing so far :)  I may have to try that with mine. I'm wondering will it a) transform still, and b) will it still be able to combine with the others with no issues? Let me know how it works out :)

    You have no idea how much I want to hug you right now (in a completely heterosexual way).

    This looks like it will be fantastic and the white tigerzord was my first zord. I still have mine somewhere and I remember how hard it was to find them. I was super excited when my dad told me pre order for it arrived.

    Finish this soon please. :)

    Yep, it can still transform just fine. The tiger mode is a little longer and less chunky though because of the added lower torso.
    Unfortunately, it will no longer be able to combine with the other thunderzords. No worries, I have some plans for them :)
