    Added articulation to an already great sculpt that sorely needed it. Also repainted the eyes since mine were originally off to one side.

    Modfications:

    Ball jointed elbows (from legends Jazz)
    Hinged knees (using a twisties tie as a pin)
    Articulated ankles (using twistie ties again)
    Ball hinged hips (using the joints from his double-arms)

    And hey, now articulated Obi-wan has someone to fight!

    I pretty much just drilled a hole and stuck the twist tie in. I used glue to make sure it wouldn't come out, and left a little sticking out of the bottom of the ankle for extra support.

    You know what I just realized? If someone were to put a Transformer's head on this body, and give it a metallic paint job, it could pass for a movie-verse Cybertronian!

    Awesome. I don't have many of these Clone Wars figures and I really hated the lack of articulation on Grevious. You made me glad I have him so that I can try this.

    "An already great sculpt that sorely needed it." Not to mention a character that sorely needed it. When will Hasbro release a super-articulated Greivous, dammit?

    Regardless of if or when, this custom is epic, and gives me raging green eyes.
