    I don't know if anyone remembers these two sisters. They were a 2003 botcon exclusive. The original figures were repaint and head swap with RID Sideburn. I felt that those two toys were pretty good female figures for what was available. Anyway I wanted to give them a good update and the idea came from Movie Topspin.
    I noticed that he had wide hips, thin arms and I could easily maltransform the arms giving narrow shoulders and the chest was very similar to an engine just like these two sisters. As I was working on the figures I still didn’t get a feminine feel to them so I decided to take some creative liberties and just replaced the chest completely so there was not questions that these were babebots.

    Technical details:
    The heads are cast from the original toys and heavily shaved down to fit. Even as much as I reduced it there is a lot of rubbing that when I finally took the car pics, I removed the head just so I would not have to touch up the paint again. I removed the claws from the arms and filled in the arms. The chest is a cast from the Mugenbine Ninjitsu figure. It was kind of a pain to place the chest just right because you have to leave enough space for the transformation. How the arms have to fold behind the chest and in front of the chest.

    On to the pics. Criticisms welcomed because I am going to make another figure for my wife.

    Attached are some artwork and the orginal toys which these characters are based on

    Beautiful! Only one small grip loose the "toes" last time I checked they were't vital to transformation! and would improve the look overall! Just thought for the next one!

    Thanks. I was going to romve the side of the foot but worried about loss of blance and stability. I think i will remove them on the next one though and see how it works. It would definately look better
