    Um...hopefully it's in the right forum, i think.

    I did this custom just for a bit of a reprieve from my usual TF - TF projects. Basically, I had a spare Hound lying around, and wasn't pleased with some new Shinki figures i got. I guess this is the result.

    Basically, i removed lots of Hound's parts, did some cutting and gluing here and there, and now Hound changes from a jeep to a mecha suit. The red fins were just there for decoration on the 'robot' mode, and i'd forgotten to hide them somewhere in jeep mode. Now it just kinda is there, and temporarily works as a display stand for a jet, at any rate. Too bad the shoulders are a bit too low compared to the figure inside, but it's the best i could do.

    I soon should be able to replace Howling, with the appropriate figure, as for now, she's just a stand in, to make sure the armor fits. I still don't know what to name the upcoming figure yet, but a friend said to me that he thinks it should have 'Terra' in it somewhere, so any ideas would be appreciated.

    Oh yeah, and i forgot to mention that the Shinki unfortunately has to be removed for Jeep mode, i just kept the mode so that the armor wouldn't just be lying around when it wasn't in use. Also, the Shinki's lower legs have to be detached when using the armor, using the existing connection port (I think it's connection point D).

    Oh, and it will have a gun. A BFG is being assembled.

    Like always, C & C's welcome.

    Phew, finally feeling a bit better. Thankfully not Swine flu. :D 

    Well, here's some sabers for her. Nothing fancy paint wise, just literally came straight out of the box of one SW Crossover. Thought it fitted the overall style of the figure. Didn't want it too look too violent.

    Oh, and i included a comparison shot with Hound for size reference. Shinkis are way too tall...
