    Most kotobukiya weapon kits are 1/144 and that would put them at deluxe size right?

    Do the pegs always need to be modded and how hard is it?

    In most cases you can take some 5mm tubing and make it fit in the transformers' hand. On some they look really good.

    But I think they are more for 1/100 though.

    Thanks!

    I just bought the MSG 19 shield. I'm gonna try to make it work with one of my movie Primes later.

    It's for 1/144 Gundam scale.

    Here's a pic of a few customs I did ... a few of which are wielding Kotobukiya weapons. I like the size of Toxitron's sword, which is ludicrously oversized. Slipstream's guns would seem to be in scale for Deluxe figures, though. For the sword, I used a bit from a silly straw I picked up at Walmart. I hope this gives you a good idea of the scale.

    Thanks!

    I guess the handles are the thing to watch out for.

    I love your videos Blunghole!

    Yes I guess they're perfect for Alternators.

    I got the shield and tried using it with the DOTM leader Sentinel hands but the hand is a little too big to use it.

    I only have 2 alternators (sideswipe and a KO black Hummer) but I'll be trying it with them.
