    Hey TFW boards~

    When I got Knockout, I was pretty impressed with what it could pull off at such a small scale. But one thing about it bugged me, and that was the leg panels. The giant, floppy, doofy-looking-when-knee-is-bent leg panels.

    Now, I know they can be popped off and used as "wings," but mine was defective. One of those little tabs was missing, and that's probably what got me thinking about this mod.

    All I did was I took the panels off, I cut them each along a line that's sort of molded into the inside detailing, and I stuck the upper parts to his upper legs with some JB Kwik adhesive stuff. It was really simple, took maybe an hour total? I think it was worth it.

    That looks... much better.
    But, personally, I like mine the way it is, 'cept for the off center wheel.

    Looks good, though.

    It certainly works...

    I never really managed to figure out the wing thing either (and i own 7 Knock Outs), but then again i ever really hated his leg panel kibble as much. Still, nice job.

    Oh, well there's two slots where the front wheel is attached. Near the hinge where it folds onto his back. That's where you're supposed to stick the panels, but I don't really like how it looks. All the crap on top of him makes his legs look even skinnier.

    Thanks guys. =D

    Nice! I don't mind the leg panels on mine so much, but this looks good enough to try anyway! :)
