    This custome does not affect figure's ability to transform at all :)

    Howdy~

    As we all know, fakebusker83 brought us a very nice set of Sentinal/Optimus Prime hands.

    I wanted to make quick upgrade for the hands.

    1. Cut some styrene sheet to added as the detail part of "back of the hand"

    2. After adding panel lines, attach them using epoxy.

    3.Make sure to attach them in angles to match screen accuracy.

    4. Applied surfacer.

    5.Paint using Mr. Color Silver Chrome/ Mr. Color gold follow by some weathering.

    6. All done :) !

    7. Here are some photos during tansformation. There is enough clearance to put new hands. make sure when you install the styrene, the end piece does not go pass the second knuckles.

    He did. However, the back hand etching is still flat. I wanted to have movie accurate back hand where it slightly comes over the knuckles.

    All in all, I'm pretty happy with it~

    Will Optimus Prime still transform with these in place?

    YES IT CAN~ Upgrade does not affect the transformation at all.

    Chris, I've updated some photos to show that it works~ :) 

    Thanks

    If I may interject an observation...in my planning for my premium OP hands, I require the fists to be thicker to incorporate the knuckle dusters. A way to fit bigger hands into the alt mode is to turn the fists so that the palm faces up (ergo, the back plate details face downwards) in truck mode. There's about 4mm of space to play with below those hands.
