    i wanted to give nightstick articulation, so he is now balljointed at the hips and shoulders. his elbows and knees are double jointed and his head is altso on a balljoint.
    im still working on the transformation as his g1 inspired chest is somewhat in the way.
    as for the cannon, i have ordered tiny magnets to make it attatch to his arms and his back.

    the materials used is plasticard and epoxy putty. i tried using greenstuff, but it does not harden as much as i would like to. the balljoint i got from a plasma dragons set.

    Awesome! Maybe a teeny magnet in the side of his shoulders, and he could wield his cannon side-arm, ala Megatron!

    that is actually the plan. this mod is inspired by another mod i saw on this site years ago where he wielded the gunpart on the arm like megatron. altough i wanted to use more of the original parts as scratchbuilding like he did is waaaay beyond my skillset.

    i have resculpted the vents on the back of his legs, and started to sculpt soles on the undersides of his shoes. i also filled the gaps in the tighs.

    i have finally finished painting him. i still have to buy some magnets to atatch(sp?) the fusion cannon to his arm. i used some stickytack for this photoshoot.

    i changed his colors and made him quite a bit darker than the original. he is now mainly black with red and silver details.

    the only problem the finished model has is that the right knee likes to pop out of the socket when im posing him. other than that im quite pleased with the result.

    exept for the legs all the parts are from the original model with ridiculously tiny balljoints in them.
