    Hey guys, been around for awhile, finally decided to start trying my hand at customs, so heres my first FINISHED work (I still have 4 projects in the works, I get side tracked easily, lol.) Generations Drift with waist articulation! Makes this figure soooo much better. Sorry the pic is kinda lame, only got my phone around me right now, camera is packed up due to construction

    I took a thin blade, cut him in half right under the hinge for the windshield and drilled a hole into his crotch. I took 2 super strong button magnets, epoxy, and glued one in the top and one in the bottom. Then I sanded everything down so it all sits even and bam, waist articulation. It doesnt hinder the transformation at all and the magnets are actually strong enough to hold it together during transformation unless I actually pull him apart. I'll take pics soon.

    Hope this helps you guys out.
