    Thanks guys!

    Currently brainstorming how to sever the door from the shoulder joint, and the best way to connect the arm back onto the body.

    Figured out how to separate the door from the shoulder without sacrificing the new configuration of the arm + wheel. It required some CAD work to design a new part though.

    I have a more clear idea on how to connect the arm to the body, so, getting warmer.

    The other new challenge this shoulder/wheel mod presents for the custom is that the back is more hollowed because the wheels no longer go there. Have to figure out the backside too. What fun! This is like a Rubik's cube.

    When it comes to 3D puzzle toys, there are some of those that definitely hold up as fantastic and others are terrible. But when you get to the Age of Extinction's ill conceived transformium and the Knights of Iacon who don't transform but shapeshift ending up as terrible toys. Bleh.

    I could forgive the transformium because it was man-made, but the Knights really annoyed me.

    Anyway, I cant wait to see the final product. Ratchet is the best.

    Wow. My solutions to custom joints are so primitive compared to yours. You really have a great mind for this. It looks incredible!
