    I've had SS brawl for a while now and even though he is far superior than any other we have gotten before, there are still ways I can see to improve him. I've been toying with him for a few days and will have a list along with pictures to how I have made these fixed, so others can as well.

    IMG_4843.jpg

    mods which I have already done and will have pictures in the future

    mounted gun for mini turret
    missile pod angle fix
    head articulation
    neck kibble
    chest plow placement
    hand articulation
    wrist kibble
    front tank tread cover/shoulder armor
    turret bend and articulation

    mods which I will do in the near future

    ankle tilt
    calf kibble
    turret rotation
    waist articulation

    i still have a few thing i need to figure out their location/where to hide them but this all should fix almost every gripe with brawl.


    later I'll have a better organized thread but here is the first mod.

    so the mounted turret is easy, the gun is actually on his arm blade hing and can be removed. the one on the right is stock and the left is the cut version, I'll make it smoother in the future, and narrow the hole on the arm blade so it can be reattached in the future. it involves parts-forming, but i think this has mostly accurate look for his tank mode.


    this is the missile pod fix,i didnt like how they point to the side and cant aim forward like the actual tank. i simply sliced off the ball joint and post, rotated it and then glued it on pointing up. and if it ever breaks i can always put a pin through the post. i also cut a small space of of the pods cup to still point forward in robot mode.

    IMG_4864.JPG IMG_4865.JPG IMG_4866.JPG IMG_4867.JPG

    again i have alot more mods i am making, and will post pictures once i finalize them,

    anyway comments and critiques always welcome!!
    thanks for looking.

    Ambitious, but it looks great so far. I'm excited to see what else you do to fix him.

    heres a little preview on the near finalized legs, they are missing the heel spurs to help with his balance, but aside from one mod i am reconsidering, everything on him is fully implimented, and ill start posting picture tutorials soon!

    I'm watching this thread because I plan on replicating this when I get the BM OS Brawl. Great work, keep it up!

    Looks like you are finishing the job Hasbro started. Looks great! I passed on this figure because it look unfinished with leg kibble and arm kibble. I'm fine with my leader Brawl as my Brawl.

    Honestly this already looks better than that 'improved' OS KO.

    I await your progress with bated breath.
