Hey fellow Radicons....I just wanted to share with you guys one of the cool new items available from our very own Ptitvite. 1/100th scaled Articulated hands. This is what they will look like when you get an un-assembled set from Ptitvite: They come on this "tree" as you can see above....They are cast in an "off white" color....all the parts are "bubble free"...no dips or crevices that need to be filled in. As you can see here, the "flash" is paper thin....in fact, I didn't even need to cut the hand parts away from the tree, I pretty much just tore the "flash" away, and separated the parts from the tree. Here are the parts, all separated from the tree. Here's whats left of the tree, and flash Using my razor knife, I removed what flash was left on the parts. I made sure not to accidentally cut off the "nubs" for the fingers....no need to look for pins for these hands...Ptitvite has made sure to mold the fingers and such with the nubs. You can clearly see them on the fingers, and inside the hands. Here's one of the hands, all prepped and ready to be assembled....they are rather idiot proof...you can see the locating tabs/pin that locks both halves together on the hand. Although, I didn't really need to glue the halves of the hands together, because they fit together so tight and secure, I did so anyway using one of those "paper binding" clips.....industrial grade Here are some comparison shots. Alt Hound Hound and Grimlock hands are to the left. Ptitvite's hands are in the middle, and the hands on the right are from a Toynami 1/100th scaled Valk. (sorry I didn't have more hands to compare with ) Here's a shot of the hands, from all four sides...yes, I got two sets. Ptitvite assembled the first set for me, so I had something to go by. He sells then assembled, and un-assembled, still on the tree. And here is one of the main reasons I wanted them!!...(what?!...it's a transformer!! )....I love the 1/100th scaled Valks by Toynami, but the fact that you have to change out the hands for "different poses" bothered me....BUT!!.....Problem solved with Ptitvites Cast Hands...they plugged right in just like the factory hands, and as you can see, he still holds the gun just fine! All in all, I'd have to say that I am VERY pleased with these hands. They are easy to put together....pretty much pain free!! . As you can see, they are articulated with index finger movement, and the other three fingers moving in unison. And to top it all off, they are made very well...sturdy and strong, like I said, no need to fill any holes, nothing like that....all I had to do was trim some flash, and put them together....couldn't ask for anything easier. I'm sure that as Kitbashers and Customizers, these articulated hands will appeal to a broad range of us that like to add that little touch to our TF's...(or Valks! ). I've seen these styled hands used on several Transformer customs as of late, and I'm sure the possibilities are endless. For anyone interested in these hands, please go here to make your request, and post accordingly: Ptitvite's casted parts **1/100 hands available** Thanks Ptitvite!!...may your Custom Cast Parts thread be full of requests!!
