    Looks good! What did you make the hands out of? Are they scratch built, or off of a different mold?

    Looks great. The silver wheelhubs are very nicely done.

    However the whole "custom TFs one ebay" is starting to get rediculous. I'll admit that i thought about it for some extra cash since it's something I enjoy doing. But then I decided not to. There are currently 8 custom Barricades up and none of them have any bids. I think people are starting to come to their sense on TF movie merch.

    It looks great, I'm in the progress of doing mine. Waiting for the RR to come in the mail.

    How did you mount the head and how did you remove the fingers on the original hand?

    thanks!

    The hands were salvaged from another Barricade toy (Transformers "Robot Replicas"). I would make it from scratch but my mini CNC machine is busted.

    Wow those arms look slick!
    The hands and top bits are a very nice touch.

    Sweet! I would like to see your project soon...

    As far as mounting the head part, I took the head and neck from the Barricade Robot Replicas and basically just swapped it. Also you will need to modify the neck just tiny bit. I recommend using a flat hobby file, that would also apply to removing the stock fingers.

    You would want to leave the thumb part tho to fit the hands from the Barricade Robot Replica toy.
