    Wikkid told me I needed more decepticons's. he's right. got a pair of oversized ko's and started working on this couple nights ago. the extra parts are movie wreckage legs. excellion forearms. gungam hands. and the head is scratchbuilt over gundam eyes. plenty more to do but here's how he's looking so far.

    hey thanks guys. :) 
    mike, nope, I just got the blue ones. I'll be really upset if the red ones are bigger. well not that upset. I like this scale.
    azwan, I currently have something like 15 customs in the works. that's not showing off mind you. that's just stupid.
    David, they didn't make a kickback. I'll have to scratchbuild the hopper.

    update time
    so here's how the feet work. I made room inside the the shin for them to swivel in
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I decided to cover up the inside of the leg so that they don't looks so empty.
    this was my template that I cut and tested, cut and tested.
    [​IMG]
    then used it to make two more with some scribed shapes.
    [​IMG]
    added some hinges
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    and we're almost done.
    [​IMG]
    cheers guys.
