    Well, this actually is the 1st of 2 bonus items on his auction, however wanted to share them with you guys.

    here's the prime thread: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/240428-rotf-leader-prime.html

    They are removable (yay!!!!) and attach with 2 SETS of rare earth magnets. The batteries are replaceable and red 5mm LEDs. I removed the factory paints and applied what I thought was more "movie accurate" (what a stupid term, and after seeing the movie, I am leaning towards "less movie accurate" lol) not 100% happy with the placement, but with all the articulation the forearm has, I don't think the side which they are on really matters (his hands can rotate)

    Anyway....

    I just used a carefully aimed wet wash. super pain in the ass to get all sides of all the gears. the cab is riveted together, and I think it would be smart not to open that can of worms.

    Looking good!

    I made my swords removable/attachable with magnets (using the original hinges where they used to rotate on) but one of them keeps rotating off to the side. I try to clip them in a straight position using the forearm armor panels but they're not as stable as they should be.

    Two magnets.. that's an idea worth stealing. Hahaha. Thanks FR
