    Just finished him up.... what a nightmare the wiring was in this one. You need to be very careful transforming him to not sever the wires in the neck.

    Went with a more purple color on him than the standard release figure which is more of a maroon. I also give him his G1 attributes back.... I switched the arms around which was A LOT more work that it should have been. I also gave him the distinct yellow eye from his G1 look. I know he will have a red eye in the move, but wanted to do something special on this one.

    The purple is very well done. Looks almost factory, in that it matches the Animated Shockwave's color.

    How much trouble was it switching the arms, and will you be doing a tutorial?
