    For those of you who need an explaination of the thread title, watch Temple of doom and cross reference sidekick names with the names of ths bot. I used rare earths and gundam hands to get rid of those god aweful flippers hasbro gave him. Being repainted into a certain mini-bot may be in his future.

    Nice. I did the same thing with mine recently, except I used the smaller soft plastic Gundam hands (the kind made from poly-cap plastic), so they actually fit into the hovercraft mode without having to be removed.

    However I'm curious... with mine, I found that Shortround is now too back-heavy for his new feet to support him. Did you make any mods to the feet to allow him to stand properly?

    Nope, in addition to being in size with the giant arms, the larger hand and magnets in the wrist give him that little bit of forward weight to make him stand. I am thinking of putting a little weight in the toes to help out with his posability though.

    Hm... looks like I'm going to have to build some kind of fold-out heel for mine. The balance issue seriously messes with his posability. :(

    You're right, I am going to drill out the toe, pour in some steel shot, and glue it shut. I will give him a lot more stability.
