    Hey guys!

    Im working on a Superion, and so far ive got many things figured out. However, i need some suggestions

    Im gonna use Supreme Starscream feet and shin for it and as you can see, your standard seeker fits just fine. Problem is that is holding just by pressure and with the tiniest movement just pop outs

    Any ideas? I cant think of anything useful that doesnt involve extensive mods to the seeker feets (im trying to mod them as little as possible)

    So, any suggestions?

    Hmm, mave you tried any magnets? Super neonydium magnets rock, I'm using them in my current Devy Commish for a secure attachment. outside of the ratcheting joints.

    Scratchbuild pegs that fit into deluxe starscreams thrusters. There wouldn't have to be any modding to the deluxe.

    I'd say go with magnets on the bottoms of the seeker feet, they'd stay hidden almost all the time and would provide great strength for holding the leg on. Also, can you rotate the tailfins to overlap the SSS leg without forcing it too much? That could be another way to help hold the modded seeker on.

    Using the tailfins to help sounds like a good idea. If you want the fins like they are then maybe you could scratch build a piece to use the small gap between the knee pads and the screw holes located there. Like a "T" shaped piece where the top of the T fits into the screw holes and the bottom of the T has a clip to attach to the shin piece.

    Well, i decided to drill holes on the thrusters and used some KO seeker launchers as a base. Then i glued to the shin and so far it seems to be holding just fine :) 

    The tailfins sounded good, however im changing those on both leg robots (Skydive is gonna be a F22 Raptor for example), so i wouldnt be able to use it

    Silverbolt is not attached yet, so im gonna think of a good way to do it. A T shaped connector might work, similar to Boanerge idea :)
