    I've always wanted to mod the elbows like you did! Can you share how you did it? Overall, nice execution on all the updates to the figure!

    Looks great man! Just wish I could figure a way to mod the figure and keep the transformation alive. Great work so far though!!

    abs were scratch built from various pieces of scrap plastic and super glued together I used a couple of plastic forks and some plastic from a milk container ! If you dont own a dremel or similar tool don't even attempt it! thanks for comments !

    Do you think maybe you could make it have interchangeable parts to make it a movie trilogy Prime, for example swappable ab piece, interchangeable arm guards, his swords, his battle hooks, and the three guns he used in the previous movies?

    @swerve gears I did think of that and I still may have the hands on magnets so you detach them and add the swords....
