    thanks dudes! first i drilled small holes into the forearms and installed a ball-joint on the peg. then i glued the square socket onto the inside of the door. works really well, actually. i'm now planning to reduce the gaps done by the mod by adding styrene to the inside corners :) 

    *high five*

    i have high hopes the generations jazz is the IDW version :D

    ang galing naman ng doors mo.

    maari bang magpacommission sayo pare? masyado akong busy ngayon at matagal mo na akong pinapalaway sa jazz mo.

    That is so cool. I love how you put the doors on his arms. I copied the pic just in case I ever attempt this. Great job. Can't wait to see him all done.

    they're on a ball joint. it's much more flexible, the rest of the front sides tuck into the back. they're obstructed from view by the roof though. :)

    The doors on his arms was a great step. Looks good, and you don't have to worry about that whole assembly popping off during transformation.

    Can't wait to see the rest. :)

    I'll disagree with your first post: I think this is a very skilled custom :) 

    I really like everything you've done with it. I really hope the Hasbro version we're getting soon looks a lot like this (or just as cool) :thumb
