    DOTM: Crankshaft (long-haired dread)

    here is the first dread from the chase scene on the freeway. I added long poseable tentacles that are made of a soft rubbery plastic. I've also taken the shoulder plates and made it so they could parts form on to his thighs. I hope you enjoy!

    so the tentacles do fit underneath the car chassis and all four wheels still touch the ground. however the tentacles do drag slightly which prevents the toy from rolling smoothly. I think there's a way to fix it by adding an additional bar to hold the tentacles up tight to the frame.

    I'm going to make a second one and paint the whole figure this time when I'm done I'll put it on eBay!

    That's awesome! I love that they stay attatched! Those guys were pretty bad-ass looking.

    Awesome mod. I knew it'd only be a matter of time before people started busting out the other dreads, and this is a great start to it

    Are the tentacles hard plastic or poseable rubber stuff?

    Well i'm sorry but if you read all of the original post then you wouldn't have needed me to answer for you. You can find out from that. THAT would have cleared things up before you even asked the question.

    sorry but im not a scanner or something to see everything posted here in this forum,if its a diffrent thread probably i wasnt interested on its title or something so i wont bother even checking it,if this was the same thread and was edited probably i was late to check it before it was edited,and i think its easier to post or reply these words

    "yes it transform idiot, or no it does not transform moron"
    than

    Well i'm sorry but if you read all of the original post then you wouldn't have needed me to answer for you. You can find out from that. THAT would have cleared things up before you even asked the question

    I think you're right. I bet Chibbywave posted the new pics with it painted but forgot to edit that part of the post.

    Looks great, btw!

    Looks real good, adds a differentiation and looks pretty accurate. Nicely done.

    Prehaps you should round his head to give hime more of a difference to crankcase. Also more movie accurate.
