    The last of my group. Still have some tweaks to do. Probably shave a little off the crotch part (i know..sounds weird). Paint and detailing...then done with my insecticons.

    I decided to put the insect arms on the back side of the forearms. Since these are Gundam pieces they can rotate around to the side for alt mode. Plus they made the arms looks slimmer....which I felt Kickback needed.

    Hope you like him.

    I like the change you did with the arms/from legs. The look extreme nice under the forearm...

    ...looking quite good LoPan, I am interested in a Gundam parts list as the components could be used for many different bashes.

    Thanks guys,

    I'll get you the Gundam parts I used once I get home. It's 1/144 scale. On the other two I used 1/100 scale parts. But like i said..I wanted Kickback to be slimmer.

    After looking at Kickback I might be adding a real torso to him. He looks a bit "stumpy" now? Plus adding a torso will make him taller.

    New and improved Kickback with longer legs! I added a torso and extended his legs. I'm VERY happy with his proportions now. 4 new pics added to the first post.

    Looks great LoPan! I really like the lankiness of Kickback, it is quite fitting. Groups shots are great. One thing though, it looks like Kickbacks wings are on backward?

    This set is pretty unique, a different take on this update.
