    I recognize Quickstrikes claws and "legs" but where are the shoulder pads from?!

    Really cool! How well does the mold stand on those skinny legs?

    Manyoufactsure told me made the shoulder pads from parts of a Gundam figure.


    And Autobot-Prowl, Scorp actually stands quite well.

    I originally planned on just putting the quickstrike arms on this. Simple swap since they are the same balljoint size. The shoulders needed something extra to beef them up. They are vinyl pieces, from a Gundam, cut to size and slide over the balljoint post. I straightened the scorpion teeth and modded the attachment point for the stinger. Finally smoothed out the chest. Without Unicron9's help, this would probably never get painted, so thanks to his expert skills I have this awesome figure completed. Thanks unicron9. Awesome work!

    I was thinking about how you could use Quickstrike's claws on him the other day (it wasn't simply that, I was considering a tail transplant, too), but the conclusion I came to was I liked Quickstrike too much to go ahead and do it. It turned out pretty good.

    That looks really awesome. Great work, manyoufactsure and Unicron9. I really want Takara to make something like this.

    So the limb swap would be easy to replicate? That's awesome to hear, because I really want something like this in my collection.
