    The SS idea I got some time ago, but the ratchet back pack mod I saw in this Tfans thread:http://www.tfans.com/talk/index.php?showtopic=72745 The thumb thing I knew about, which led to me finding that thread on how to it. So lets start with that.

    No, he's not emo, I just got handy with the dremel, He's enjoying his thumbs:

    Next up: Starscream with custom hands, not pre-built! (The pics don't show it too good, but he's CG-accurate with for fingers and two thumbs)

    I will articulate them and paint them once I move. All my supplies have been packed away, but the colour of the wood is close enough in real life.

    Starscream's hands look like crowns.

    But I do enjoy Ratchet's thumbs!

    Yeah, my camera kinda sucks. The left hand's in a semi-pointing pose and the right is in a flat hand.

    Sorta, only each is about a foot long and twice as thick. I had to use a power saw to cut them.

    SPLIT LIP + Power tools = :(

    I knew there was proper name for them! I have about a hundred of 'em and didn't know what to do them.
