    I do not like to purchase, let alone customize k.o.s...it kind of feels dirty..haha.. but wow, I knew the only way I was EVER going to get a larger WFC Prime was to build one... then along came this guy.

    Plastic quality is rather good. The details are nice...but he is a floppy mess.. if you get this guy you will for sure need to tighten the joints.

    So just some airbrushing, tighter joints, and details... this is what all my figures look like before I add the battle wear to them:)  I am not done as of yet because I still want to add some rubber tires to him.

    I have some red E.L. wire I was going to use... but as this was just a little side project over the past couple of weeks... I have not had time to put them in, but there is a lot of room there... in 6 months when I am done with commissions maybe I could try it. Haha.

    You can pick one up from:

    there is also a nice before pic as well..

    That mold was made for this size. I think it is simply too small and frustrating for a deluxe. You could keep all the molding exactly the same, and it'd be a leader-appropriate figure with above-average transformation difficulty. With your paintjob, it'll be a MP-appropriate figure.

    Awesome work David. I feel the sme way about Ko's, and actually groaned when I saw that they had made this, cause I want one. :)  I would love to have him fully light up like he does in the game. That el rope would be pretty cool. looking forward to more.

    Giant axe in the works?:thumb

    Ok, i got mine on Monday and he is a huge floppy mess. I got to know how exactly did you fix that. I know that future finish is what people use but how? Do you apply the finish to the screws and rods or do you apply it to the plastic? Please help.

    What I did was apply the future finish to the pins while still in thier holes.
    The contact surfaces you can do the same. But I prefer to use superglue on those areas.
    Both products can fill the same role as the other. You just need to experiment with it. I apply the future finish with a syringe to get it exactly where I want. The super glue, just try to get something with a fine tip.
    The paint process helps alot too. Your base coat with help stabalize some of the joints a bit. The future finish and/or superglue will finish it off.

    Hope that helps.

    Amazing work BTW Encline!

    Can't wait to see it finished and on my shelf :p

    :D  please post a tutorial how to do so!

    And another suggestion you could try: A mod for the wheels to transform to give him his "Hover mode" in the video game. After seeing your work Encline there's not a doubt in my mind that you could find a way to pull it off.

    I'm going to buy one of these and customize it myself. There's a pretty big empty spot next to my Xbox where I keep all my video game character figures and I only got a few.
