    Hi. Newbie here and I would like to share my mod on superion. I used some KO gundam and KO Thrust parts for this one. I hope you like what I did. The flickr set would detail how the parts work.

    Electronic parts came from the same KO gundam figure. Bought a blue LED light in an electronics store. Cleaned up the cuts I previously made and painted some black to accent the appendages. I've painted some red on the front "wings" to give the chest more color. The jetpack at the back came from a KO Thrust figure, I had to paint the parts to make it look good. Gun came from an Ironhide figure that had lots a guns. Can't remember what it's called.

    I found it amazing I did not have to glue any of the electronic parts. They just seem to stick where I wanted them to. The switch at the back also slipped into place with the grooves of Superion. Electronics part can be taken out, but I will have to unscrew the head to remove the LED from it.

    I'm happy with how this turned out. Hope you liked it.

    Looks good and didn't cost you an arm and a leg like the FP kit would. Nice job. I also see that you combined the Voyager Recon Ironhide weapons to make him a rifle. Pretty neat idea.

    What Gundam did you use?

    Sorry I wasn't able to get a shot of the full figure, but this is majority of how it looked like.

    I'm no gundam boy so I'm not really sure. But yeah, I bought it for the sole purpose of bashing it for parts.

    vehicle mode remains the same look. The parts are just add-ons to Superion.

    Good stuff! Another nice option for those unable to afford or find the FP Superion kit.

    yup. The FP add-on kit really is too expensive for me.
