    There is a slight changes in the alignment of the arms which some suggested that first aid is located too high up so I take the initiative to adjust the alignment for first aid as well as blade to make it more symetrical in the arms appearance what do u think!

    first aid looks kinda weird, kinsa too high, or maybe its the position that the arm is in.
    That formula f_r invented is the best one for defensor imo

    Looks pretty good man! Could u give us a pic from straight on with his arms down by his side? I think then we all could see how much if any u might want to consider moving the arms. Keep up the good work man!

    That is a huge figure. I like that you used the pieces for the feet from RID Prime. Can't wait for the color shots.

    nice, would you mind sharing how you connected the shoulder joints to RID prime?

    I wish to do the same, but having trouble with the connections.
