    Been meaning to get around to this for a minute, it turned out to be very easy.
    I had an old set of the re-released Insecticons I'd been meaning to articulate, then the FP set came out.
    But we all know they need a certain "je ne sais quoi", so here's my take on Shrap-neezy.

    I'll probably throw a little bit of grey paint on the pincers, I'm not a chrome guy. Probably wont go so far as to add the hand blasters.

    It was also important to me to give that head a little boost upward.

    Thanks to David Lo Pan for the inspiration/instruction.

    Nice!

    So does this mean you don't need my help? ;)  I like how you used a different technique on the pincher clips. Very cool. Congrats man.

    Thanks, bro!

    Heh, we'll see about the others. :wink: 
    Thanks, the clips were from Gen. Wheeljack's wrenches, they have a hinge so i went with them.
