    FakeBusker83's hands fits perfectly I assure you. I will not hinder the transformation. I will try to post more pics soon. My only rant is the Buster Prime Gun's handle is too small and only works well using the old stock hands.

    Alright. Can someone explain to me how these "Shapeways" hands work? Do you buy them, or build them on your own? B/c this looks bitchin'.

    Theyre on a sprue like a model kit, you build them, clean them, and paint them, and in most cases only have some screws to remove and replace.

    I kinda hate you now. I think I may end up buying Buster Prime and these hands. That looks positively magnificent.

    The hands look great. I love that Buster Prime is way more accurate than the Leader Prime Hasbro has released. I just wish I could get a good set of all his flames so I can finish my custom.
