    Again, looks to be a promising start of a stellar piece--though I have to ask, are you planning on mounting the wings that low on his back, or is it just a consequence of staging the pieces for photos? It seems a little...off...from accuracy if they're placed that far down...

    Oh, no worries. The wings are only sitting that low because I propped them up against the figure itself. I couldn't get masking tape to hold them up in place and have it look presentable. The wings will be mounted higher up on the back, where - if he were not a robot - the shoulder blades would meet.

    Cheers.

    If you can add a ball joint to hinge the wings forward then use option B. That way he can use his trademark Storm Tornado.

    I finally got the new wings in the mail today. I think they're going to look great.
