    Just finished putting this guy back together to see how he looks, not transformed him yet since I'm going to bed, small preview to whet the appetite. more pics may come later depending on what I get up to in regular hours :lol )

    (his hands were sawn in half btw so now fingers move freely rather than just at the tip.)

    I am the first to attempt to do this as far as I know. It surprises me that nobody else though to do this sooner.

    That's pimpin' yo! Now that I see this I think that's is what's holding me back from wanting this guy. I already sold the one I got in a lot to a local Oregonian

    I hope you did a tutorial for this. It sounds easy, but I don't want to take the chance.

    there is definitely a trick but I didn't take pictures, it shouldn't be too difficult to dsmantle the wrist and take pictures of how to saw it so it comes out even.

    He's currently outside waiting for the purity spray to dry then I'll take some vehicle mode pictures.

    Thanks for the comments guys, my painting is improving (love that purple) but uneven coats seem to come up when it comes to photographs. it all looks smooth in person though I can see me coming back to him for more touch ups.

    Absolutely perfect! (Understatement)
    Seriously, I could rave aboyur this for like 10 minutes! Lugnut's probabkly my favorite transformer, and when I saw HasTak put out nonaccurate colors I was like
    "Well, I guess you'll be his brother..." :( 
    This is GLORIOUS in ways that even Lugnut himself couldn't proclaim. :)

    WOOHOO! I'm looking for Lugnut to do the exact same thing! Have you found any bombs that would look good under the wings? I'm thinking of making some sort of bomb-guards for his hands so it's like the animated look.
