    If you look at the top of the claw, there is a hinge pattern there. I razor sawed the front and back edges up to the center hinge tooth. then cut that out with an exacto knife. If you follow the outside spacer grooves molded in the plastic on front and back, you will neatly bisect the support struts. Then use a pin vise to drill holes through the backs and all 4 support strut halves. Thread a large paperclip through the holes and cut to length. Super glue the front and back "reservoirs". Now use your exacto knife to trim/ round the inner edges until the fingers move freely.

    I'll put up some pics to show the cuts tonight.

    You will need to buy yourself a Leader Brawl for the parts. I am trying to figure out how to make a tutorial for this without taking Megatron apart. (He only lends me his arm for upgrades and is none to keen about that.)

    I will have to do a bit of drawing on the pics, but I think I can do it.
