    Insecticon Shrapnel COMPLETE

    Hey Guys,

    Started on my Shrapnel. Went FrenzyRumbles route with the legs. Arms are being worked on. It's a bitch to make them look not to 'ape' like. It's getting closer though. Added completely new shoulders from a Gundam and it has a lot of articulation. Feet are not attached yet..but so far so good. Let me know what you think so far.

    Thanks D-Unit!

    Hey Red,

    Sorry for the laggy reply. Had a family emergency. All is well now. Yeah..it has been awhile and I'm having lots of fun. :)  Hope you're doing well.

    Anyhoo...UPDATE. Everyone must be sick of Insecticons by now :) 

    Feet attached. Head is articulated. Back leg plates attached. Still gotta add the laser wheel thingies to the arms. 4 new pics added to the first post.

    man, I started working these guys for my collection...I think until you get in there and start cutting, you do not realize the things are crazy to work on....

    Looks real good so far. I like the arms....not ape looking.

    looking good. The seeker legs feel like they were almost made for this guy. see where the blue is near the bottom? I cut a little out there so that the foot can actually fold up 90 degrees and the bottoms are flat.

    Pretty cool bro. I wonder what Jack Burton would say if he saw this lol.
    When do you think you'll have it finished?

    Jack Burton would say..."What the hell" :) 

    Should have him done tomorrow.

    Thanks Frenzy. I saw that you cut the blue parts...but he happened to stand fine without the cuts. Glad you like him. You rule.

    hey man, looking at the pic of the back of his legs. One thing I did that helped was cut a little out of the leg's back so that they can bend more, hardly noticeable but helps articulation.
