    This probably the most complex Legends custom I have started. I took some Megablock's Pirates figures, cut their elbows and knees and inserted them into the arms and legs of the Transformer. I had to measure very carefully so the transformation were not altered.

    And it's done. All I have to do is adding some paint. I was thinking about just paint black the new pieces, and add some detail. What do you think?

    EDIT: Added some pics showing the figures that donate the articulations and how to cut them.

    EDIT: Added a pic with some of the paint applied. I guess I have to change the name of the thread because he is no longer Starscream.

    Man, you are fast. Thanks for your comment. Maybe I could make the others, given that there is plenty of this particular Legends, but I have to think about it. Possibly I got bored of doing the same thing several times. What I really want to do is upgrade Jazz, Hound and Megatron, but I can't find them. :cry

    Wow! Very nice. I have a lot of respect for folks who can work at such a small scale and have it turn out functional. :D

    nicely done man. I'd just dye them black, so no paint wear.

    I think it would be a cool "little" project....I would like to see them done. :) 

    I haven't seen Jazz yet, but I have seen Hound and Megs a couple of times...

    Hey great update. I think I'm underestimating my skills. I'm gonna go find these figures in the next few days and give this mod a go

    If I can do it, anyone can do it. You just have to try, and then you wil be surprised of the things you can achieve. Good luck.

    I wish I was buying more of these legends when they were everywhere. I want a tiny army of these things with articulation that is. I'm gonna head to the store after work to see if I can track down some of those megablocks figs. Are they sold in sets or separately?
