    hi there people..
    im completely new to the place and god only knows how i missed it, its awsome!
    i've only recently been seeing some amazing customized figures online and just missed out on one online due to last minute bidders lol. So i thought I'd try and give it a go..
    I have a Leader Class Optimus Prime with the 2 hooks on each arm, and I think they looked horrible, so I wanted to make a sword type weapon to look cooler. I decided (against my wifes wishes!) to remove one of the hooks..

    I cut the hook of the top of one after safely removing the mechanism and dremeled a piece of plastic to the shape and glued it into place under the remaining piece of hook. Put it back on and the mechanism is working perfect! So it can hide away.
    I then shaped it again and gave it a coat of paint with some paints i had handy. I will repaint once I buy the proper paints.

    what do yous think?
