    Hey Guys,

    Here is another custom that I just finished, this figure has a custom head as well as a custom cannon barrel that magnetically connects to the figure. I would like to thank Autobotx23 for his tutorial.

    This figure was painted with a more battle damaged look and has lot of little details when you look closer at it.

    What you do is, you get a really thin blade that can cut through plastic, if it cannot, you can heat up the blade a bit, cut down in-between the fingers right down to the pin that holds the fingers. Make sure you separate all around the pin. They should be able to move individually.

    That is awesome. How do you manage to avoid scraping around the shoulders without popping them or the rear tracks off? I can't seem to transform my Straxus without having to half-force the arms past his rear hull.

    That is seriously wicked. I've seen it done before but the cannon you used and the detailing is just right for what I like

    Cool, thanks for the tip, I will need to try this when I do another custom with this mould.


    I used the transmetal optimus prime cannons, you need to take it apart and then pull out the barrel.
