    I've modified these hands to fit my dmk as the orginal design didn't allow me to fit them due to clearance between the back of the hands and the sword.
    You can now attach either the back plate or the knuckle section on to the hand using rare earth magnets to suit the pose you want.

    forgot to mention that I used the back plate from the original dmk hands and also the ball joint section which I fitted onto these

    I like how you got really creative in adapting those hands to a completely different figure. Nice work. Since you seem to be the first person to have those in hand, how do they feel? Are the joints working the way they should?

    yeah I'm happy with them I had to tighten the joints a little with superglue to get them how I wanted but happy overall with the detail and strength of the parts and joints in general. I ordered them in polished white and flexible plastic. nice design recommended

    They look cool, but what's the advantage?

    After doing the relatively easy knuckle fix on DMK Prime, he's got exceptionally nice hands to begin with. Do these hold weapons better?

    what knuckle fix are you referring to? these do hold weapons better and you can have either a murder knuckle pose or the standard hand pose with my set up

    Melting the inside of the pegs that go into the finger (knuckle) joint just a little bit so it mushrooms out and the fingers no longer fall off if you look at them funny. There's a tutorial on it somewhere. Some people use lighters to hear screwdrivers, I use my soldering iron.

    Once you've done it the fingers seem to stay together just fine.

    But if it holds weapons better, that is a plus! DMK fists can hold weapons, but not well.
