    is there a fix out there for superion? it just looks weird to me that head sits lower than his shoulders. i tried doing a search but haven't come up with anything. can anyone point me to a thread if I did miss it?

    Here's what I mean...I did a quick mock up.

    BEFORE:

    head sunken down.

    AFTER:

    head spaced upwards about 1/4".

    or am I missing a part that does this?

    The head sits low, as it's constrained by the chest which pegs into the crotch piece. You can transform the arms differently to eliminate the shoulder pylons, which might improve the appearance of the head.

    mines doesn't peg well to the crotch...seems to always slip off so its just hanging. ah yes, I was looking for that arm transformation. gotta look at it closely so i k now how you did it. thanks

    Hmmm...interesting thought although i don't have jetfire...that would definitely bring his head up a notch. thanks for the idea.

    Is there anything tricky with this transformation? Or pretty simple, I think I tried this once, but didn't look like yours.

    got a link?

    I already ordered one from scramble core's shop (not sure if that's the same person you're talking about).

    I was also looking to widen the shoulders with that extension at scramble cores site but not sure if might be too much.

    this is the link to his shapeways process' projects by jpaxson on Shapeways

    yeah i thought about that too, but I'm planing on making my own arms and legs so it will change up the way the shoulder jets look and they won't be so close to the torso

    What's the difference between the different fillers? Which one would work best? I actually just combined my Superion the first time with FP parts a few weeks back.
