    Hey, I hate to start a question thread, but can I get a "cross-section" of sorts about what toys/hardware people use around here for adding articulation to figures? I've heard alot about using lego bionicles- is that about right?

    I've just started a rather ambitious custom, repainting and adding g1 correct articulation to some KO Constructicons I got in Chinatown. I want to replace the shoulder/elbow joints and add joints at the hip, upper thighs and knees.

    Anyone have a suggestion of what to use for joints, or should I make my own?

    Jins screw method and magnets are pretty useful and yes Bionicle toys have tons of ball joints to cut up and use. Just but one and now you have more than you will need for a while.

    Yep, that's pretty much what I'm going for, minus the extra detail on the individual bots. Thanks for the link!
