    Knockout from Studio Series Stinger

    Update 1st June 2018

    [​IMG]

    It was such a fortuitous circumstance that Studio Series Stinger and Prime RID Knockout
    shares the same neck joint. I never liked how hollow and compromised the original RID mold
    is and I'm constantly looking out for a replacement. And now we have a perfectly good one from
    Studio Series!

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Paint Knockout's face in white, give him black eyes with red pupils, pop it on to the body and voila,
    a new Knockout for year 2018.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    In case anyone's wondering, by tilting and tucking his chin to the side in alt mode, his head fits
    nicely into the cavity. The only other mod I did was to shave off a little of his collar so that it wouldn't
    drag on the ground in alt mode.

    * * * Credit goes to Mr Jonathon O'Toole who first suggested the new head position for
    alt mode storage. Thank you sir! * * *

    Wow, that is gorgeous! I might have a reason to pick up Stinger being that I have a Knock-out.

    This is a fantastic idea! That said though, I feel like you've cheated poor Knockout a bit by not addressing the elephant (read: Stinger blaster) in the room. Where's that extra bit of Fakebusker TLC that you normally give your projects??? :eek:

    Dam, I was going to skip the studio series stuff, but now I have to make an exception. This is a custom that even my talents, or lack there of, can handle.

    That's awesome! He might need a chest filler though for that unsightly hole in the chest, and something for the stinger thing.

    for those interested in the cannon being gotten rid of, there'ss just one pin holding it together. before my stinger broke i cut the thing in half, it tabs onto the other arm the same it does as alt mode. looks pretty cool, but yeah pull out the pin for the best look.

    Can anyone link to a shapeways store or similar place to get a Knockout head? I don't have that figure, and I'd rather not buy a whole one just for a head swap.

    I've not seen any on Shapeways either, which was frustrating when I was making one from the POTP Jazz mould as I ended up destroying a neck system in order to have it receive a ball joint as opposed to feature one
