    I've been trying to improve crappy figures lately, so here's the latest. The movie Deadend mold is kind crappy and the Prime Knockout mold is also crappy (IMO). So, I thought I'd mix and match.

    While the colors aren't spot on, I think it's close enough. I have a Movie Dino, and that would be a much better match. But there's no way I'm sacrificing that figure.

    If I can match the paint, I'll do some more red accents, so Knockout's head doesn't stand out so much.

    Movie Knockout:

    * Some of the Sideways and Deadend mods - By Generation: - RotF Sideways/Dead End Leg Mod!
    * Modified/painted Prime Knockout Head

    Great custom overall, but the Prime Knockout head looks kind of out of place on the movie styled body, I'm sad to say. :(

    Great idea. I'm surprised that this hasn't been done sooner.

    It does. It would be awesome if someone could get a Knockout Movieverse head up on Shapeways.

    True, but I suppose at the end of the day you have to work with what you're given, and the vast majority of toy customizers don't have the resources to mold their own headsculpts.

    All you did was just swap heads.

    Well. I listed the the mods from other people. Swapping heads for this is not easy. Knockout's head is a ball peg. Dead End's neck is also a ball peg. So, I had to drill/scrape/Dremel out Knockout's head to appropriately fit on the Dead End neck.

    - removal of faux wheel on left hand
    - addition of 5mm hole on left hand for all weapons
    - painted gold details over Dead end body
    - painted Knockout head
    - customized Knockout balljoint neck
    - customized Dead End feet
