    here is a run down of all the changes !
    Modified torso
    Modified parts relocated to more movie accurate positions
    Extended neck
    Duel led lit eyes with easily accessible battery compartment (located in the chest) and switch located on the lower stomach area
    Hand sculpted arm panels and axe head using styrene
    Real wiring added around the figure to give more movie accurate look
    Modified more accurate feet (due to my mods the figure is much lighter and less back heavy so I was able to remove his feet stabilizers at the rear
    Articulated fingers ( I have done a finger separation mod on his hands so each finger can move independently
    New repaint using matt black, silver, chrome, red enamel paints ( I use top quality Humbrol enamel paint that are very colour fade resistant and durable
    Modified cane or walking stick with interchangeable handle and custom made axe head which was painted in acrylics using my own fire glow technique
    6 missiles added to his legs with custom leg panels
    I have kept all the original articulation on the figure apart from the head which I had to fix due to the neck modification.
