    I started tinkering with a TM Nighbeat head, a Zoids joint, and a broken T-Prime Rumble...

    The question is whether or not to pursue or start again with a different body. Any opinions are welcome. Thanks.

    Side note: Nightbeat's legs do not bend properly. Have any of you had the same problem? I added a side shot of the head to show the weird gap caused by the knees.

    Dunno if the body works for him, but the colors sure as hell do! I guess it's up to you.

    As for the legs, I'm not sure what you mean. Like, on the Titan Master itself? And do you mean the hip joint, or the knee joint?

    thanks for those that have commented. I have figured out the problem with the head/leg joint issue. Nightbeat's arms are slightly off so the arm joint had to be slightly pushed back and then the legs folded flush with the chest to give a better looking head. I'm still struggling to permanently secure the Zoid joint, aka neck, inside the torso of the Rumble body. Right now I have placed a small rare earth magnet in the bottom of the Zoid joint; it on top of some plasticard cut to fit inside the Rumble torso; then a larger magnet underneath the card to keep the neck from coming off.

    Transformers Prime headmaster Nightbeat can be achieved with a bit more yellow and a slight face mod. Please continue!

    It looks like his arms are on the wrong sides. His thumbs are facing the face part of him.
