    i really like the fakebusker hands but they dont like right to me on a g1 style/mp custom

    i know zilgian has stopped casting them now,does anybody eles cast them?

    if not im gonna have to try myself...and the idea of tiny 2 part molds with moving parts terrifies me!

    its not super articulated but the fist opens and closes it was just a suggestion as they may be easier to cast if you are going to try it yourself (less parts), they do not have the spikes, i contemplated getting another one when they go on clearence so i could add them to my ROTF prime. but then again there is another suggestion you know they are going to go on clearence at somepoint cause they are severely clogging up the shelves in my area.

    just a suggestion though as im not really sure whay you after

    Here's the design from another angle.

    Some of the dimensions:
    Back of hand is 15mm x 15mm,
    connector peg is 5mm x 5mm,
    holds 5mm weapon peg

    as i previously mentioned, this is the prototype, which I'm waiting to be delivered, if it all works smoothly I'll clear it for mass release.

    You should make them on spur and cast them. I've heard the shapeways material isn't exactly the strongest.
