    A while back, I saw someone modifying their Universe Springer's rotor blades to swords. Can someone please show me how to do that?

    I'd love to know this too as Springer needs his swords.

    Either that or just gradually file down the base of the blades - they're only slightly too wide to fit a 5mm hand as it is, you could easily shave them down without making them where they won't fit back into the rotor.

    Will a heated object remold the hand to fit the blades?

    I took a cigarette lighter to a Stanley Precision Screwdriver to heat it up and used that to melt and scrape away the plastic to mod Animated Lockdown's hands. I had a Cybertron Evac (great toy... miss it), and that plastic is a little thicker and maybe harder, but it should work... you'll just need a little more effort and patience if you want to use a heated blade-type-object to do the cutting. Be patient, measure OFTEN. I mean more often than RPG video games tell you to save.

    I did the heated object method with a heated nail and Evac is amazing with swords now.

    I wish I could post some pics but I can't.
