    So I was crusin tru today cuz I didn't feel like goin to class, and found something called bionic cammando. The figures left arm is, well, bionic. Now special thing about this figure is that he's got 5 fully articulated fingers that look like they might be just right for the new movie leader class prime figure coming out! I'm not sure just yet, and unfortunately I couldn't snap ne pictures, but I promise you that they are deffinately a promising begining for some of the more experienced bashers around here. Thought I'd share.

    The right arm is just a... Right arm. Nothin special, so in order to do a full custom, yea either buy a second or cast the parts and make a little $$ profit.

    There's only one problem. When you cast the left hand, you get a left hand, don't you? So how would you get a right hand?

    The figure only has the fingers, not a whole hand. The palms would need to either be a set fitted, or scratch built and the fingers from the bionic commando figure be attached. I have the ideas for it, just not that great of a fabricator.

    Lol, I wish I were doin that rhinox, but no, it wasn't for that. Just wasn't in the mood to deal with people in class. Though I'm glad I went to tru, n foud that, cuz I just might try my hand at using those parts.

    You can get a right arm out of it if you can swivel the shoulders around. Since he only has 4 fingers on his grapple arm, it should work.


    There should be some big Terminator figs coming out that mave have some good arms for using

    Hmmm...a whole figure for just 4 fingers, I'll pass thank you. I know the first leader Prime from TF1 had individually articulated fingers to a point, and frankly outside of Alternators I actually prefer standard 5mm peg hole fists on my TF's. Makes arming them easier for me.
