    This is my wip years ago, until today only i continue to work out on him. The window's gear actually already dismatled years ago.....Will send those gear to my friend to paint before i reassmble them.

    I saw many custom on boards, repainted whole figure but the gear inside doesn't get treatment. But however, after we paint on those gear, the paint will chip off too when there is movement.....

    Today, i done the whole upper body, i dismantle all of them into pieces, so that i can wire my roof's lights, waist lights, and also the eye into his internal battery pack. And will make another switch to light them up.

    It is a very tricky to remove the screw below his arm....erm....My progress is very slow, ppl now are all custom for DOTM, but im just / still ROTF series....:crazy:

    remove the pin. It's about the only way that screw is coming out dude, koof, I hope to see more of this soon. I was lucky enough to find a way to dismantle the chest windows with out destroying them, and I painted those gears up as well. Good luck to you, and I hope to see more soon!

    I've painted the gears on my OP a while back, too. The paint stays solid on those pieces, so no problem there. Oh, and I even painted them with some acrylics, not the heavy enamel paint.

    Updated......!!!!

    [​IMG]

    Done the new circuit for half side....now featured roof's fiber optic, eye and wasit lights up. Activated by one switch.

    By the way, all this is link to the original circuit, which means while the speech activated or the engine sounds activated, the eye is till blinking as usual and the roof's lights is also blinking.

    Hey man, just use lacquer paint on those gears and they should be all set. The clearances on them aren't tight enough to cause chipping.

    It's really difficult, I had to pry the battery pack away from the shoulder area enough to let me get a finishing nail onto the pin, and tap it out through the from of the shoulder into a block of wood.

    well, no I didn't make any holes that I know of.. and if there's a video of this process, I don't know of it. I just went by what I was hearing back when RotF Leader Primes were first started getting customized.
