    So I was asked to do another one of these bad boys and after a talk decided to add some extra articulation and after a few weeks he is now done.

    He has a ball jointed head, fully moveable ratcheted shoulders and swivel feet so no matter how posed will always be flat footed. Only issue now is I need to build another to replace my version 1!

    Very nice! How did you manage to connect the shoulders to the torso while retaining the ratchet joints? I've been trying to figure that out.

    Cheers man, I cut out the original pole within the torso that the G1 shoulder connected too and replaced it with the ratchets and poles in Silverbolt's forearms. Perfect fit with the new shoulders (with them being from Silverbolt!), nice and tight with a nice satisfying click when moved. If that makes sense? I'm gonna be making at least another for me so I'll get some shots for you. Won't be for at least a week or so till I get started tho.

    Cheers :)

    @ Coltello:

    I cut this piece on the right away from the forearm (either would actually do tbh):

    [​IMG]

    After taking the ratchet piece out first lol and then gluing it in place of the original torso shoulder peg piece.

    Then cutting/widening one of the openings on the left hand side (below) so it sits snug on the raised part on the rear of the inside torso where the screw comes in from the rear and then slot one of the ratchets from Silverbolts arms into the other side so it meets the ratchet you've already glued in on the front torso section:

    [​IMG]

    The ratchet on the right above is replaced by one of Shockwave's original ratchets....with a little sanding. That then fits perfectly into the shoulder part/upper arm of the G1 figure without any other issues (which you have already done I think).

    The springs keep it all nice and tight.

    Hope all that makes sense!! I should be getting another Shocky in within the week, when I've done the work again I'll get a pic of what it looks like internally.
