    Hey, I started this one just a couple weeks ago. I always loved Bboom since i had the origanal figure. However he kinda looked fat and short like he hadnt been in any battles in a long time. I wouldve liked to play arond with his gun table mode but scrapped it pretty early. Heres what i did

    Took out most of the waist assembly. Added parts, technic, to swivel the torso a little higher.

    Alaways hated the shoulder flaps, in fact if you dont want to bash, just pop them off the hinge and flip tbe over for awesome shoulder pads. So i added a ball joint with hinge to get what i wanted.

    Added the new feet on the bottom of the baboon feet.

    Shaved hi ass a bit for a little more articulation

    Added the gun mount on back. Drilled two small boles in shoulder to mount new guns.

    Shaved around his head to pronounce his mowhawk.

    Completly disassembled and paited, still not totaly done.


    I have to finish the head with some sculpt. Paint some details. Attach back, to be removable as riot sheild. Design the gun parts to attach into one big gun, and fit in storage.

    Thanks for looking.

    Nice work so far, I always enjoy watching these toys get improved upon. Bot mode looks much better.

    Thanks alot, once i have all the silver matching it should look pretty streamline. Did the waist look like it needs filler at all. That was something i was worried about.

    I didn't notice it until you pointed it out. Looks fine from here. I did notice the creative use of lego parts on the back though. Does he transform?

    Still transforms. However baboon mode isnt quite as tight as it used to be, ill be working on improving that. I made the back to be removable for two reasons.
    First he has great detail that Ill probably paint so they stand out.
    Second I made it into a decent sheild !!


    Thanks alot.

    Some pics of what im thinking for accessories.
    All extra weapon parts will be stored on back
    * very early stages for the triple barrel shotgun.

    Heres some pics showing how beast mode has been affected. Still will try to tighten up the side angle. This also has all his weaponry stored under his back.
