How did you install the hips? I've been looking for a tutorial.
Pretty easy, have him in mid transform where he's splayed open. That screw in the back of the shuttle with the washer welded to it. Unscrew it and viola. Oh first take the thighs off
Untab his chest and fold it down. That screw right there is the one you need to remove. That's all there is to it
I have avoided Chigurh up until this last week when I saw him at a local second hand retro gaming store. I replaced the hips with the part that came with Gewalt and... Holy Moley is this a GREAT figure. I can't believe I missed out for so long. Pictures did not do this guy justice. In hand he is simply awesome, SOLID, and fun. DX-9 makes the best SOLID bots. Yes even more solid than Fans Toys. DX-9 knows their tabs. Their tabbing game is strong.
DX-9, if you read these posts... Thanks for such a great figure.
Ehh, I can't get over its aging design aesthetic with gappy forearms and such. Otherwise I'd be able to check the MP Astrotrain box, too.
I just rotate his arms so the rounded side is up. I get tired of every bot having the "fold forearm panel up, to hide the fist" transformation. He is super fresh to me.
He's a good looking bot and very solid, easy to transform, and fun
Still trying to figure out a way to store the train back piece in shuttle mode
I also rotate the forearms. LOL. Great minds...
Good figure. For now...
Dx9 did a great job, but I'm waiting for Fanstoys.
I don't think they have even announced one.
It should have been made to fit on the bottom!
It's fun and solid. Glad I kept one
it combines with his gun to form a flight stand
True but I wish it filled that gap underneath
Did not know that
To store the extra piece in shuttle mode, you can sorta place it on the back of the shuttle and over the thrusters. The 2 tabs from the piece that protrude out can go between the 2 bottom shuttle thrusters and it stays on with friction there.
It covers up the thrusters for the most part, but he can just be considered a space ship that uses engines that aren't based on conventional combustion propulsion. Maybe he's a ship not unlike a Star Trek Federation ship.
That's worse than just leaving it aside lol
I'm thinking about finally picking Chigurh up but was wondering what to do about the hips if you don't get Gewalt. Is there another way to get the replacement hips? I'm not very familiar with 3P figures so I don't know how these things work.
