    Came up with a way to give a little neck articulation to Trypticon using rudimentary ball joints and pistons. Also added turrets and ramps to make his base mode more fun. Modded in opening storage bays, to access the insides of the base, too. Ball joint shoulders to give a little more expression and motion on basemode repair cranes. Head canopy and teeth were to give him a more Zoids aesthetic.

    It's cool. Where did you get the ramps?

    Titans returns ramp extensions on Shapeways. They are not cheap though, so I bought a small and long one and cut them in half.


    King Gojulas. I like the style of that better than Trypticon, though.
