Hey Gang! Well...looks like I'm at it again! Can't keep my grubby paws off when it comes to 'bashin I suppose... I was skimming my stockpile of inspiration the other day when I came across "TURBOEDGUY's" incredibly articulated G1 figures (check out his awesome SKIDS that inspired me) : http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/211522-articulated-g1-skids.html I knew I hadda have my Skids worthy of sitting in my Classics lineup! ( don't worry, he's not a G1 original so I can hack n slash without fear! ) so with veritable mountains of inspiration courtesy of T.G., ( dude) I present to you my latest tom-foolery-in-progress! Also.......my usual "laundry list" ! G1 "SKIDS" re-issue (upgrades) 1- New, larger head w/lite-pipe eyes. Head on ball jointed neck 2- L.E.D. headlites w/ clear lenses 3- New arms w/ poseable hands & close to 180% bendable elbows. Shoulders to have "swivel" joint. Front wheel assemblies to transform like RTS "JAZZ's" with new,accurate side view mirrors attached 4- "Telescoping" upper torso ( for added height ) 5- New upper legs with ball jointed hips & knees 6- Ball jointed waist (?) 7- New,accurate "grille" ( use p.e. mesh ) 8- New feet ( ball jointed ) w/ retraction gear allowing for partial storage into leg during alt mode 9- New wheels 10- Hinged "back plate" that swings down from inside of roof to attach to backside of upper torso. This will hide the unseemly gap necessitated by the alt-mode head storage pocket Is it just me, or am I bitin' off more than I can chew with this guy? Cheers ! ~BK UPDATES!! Hey Gang! Was just fartin' around with this guy over the last couple of days to see If I could come up with a new layout for him & this is where I'm at. The head base is an RTS Tracks' noodle & the new hands are Hobby Base's awesome 1/144 Perfect grade super poseable hands. Whattya guys think, he look better in this configuration?
