    Just been googling ball joints and come accross this brilliant site that sells pack of ball joints

    joints Hobby Tool Store

    Only problem being, I don't understand it ! Anyone know what the hell's a
    T Joint, Double Joint, Rolling Joint, etc are ? If you can understand what they are I suppose it's halfway towards using them in a bash, I can't stand the thought of unsing magnets as joints, I like joints to have some kind of mechanical connection.

    YES!! Option parts are a kitbashers dream. Overseas Gundam and other Mecha models have loads of aftermarket parts and kits. They range from details like boosters and vents to full armor upgrades.

    I definitley recommend fellow kitbashers who haven't already to browse a few Gundam or Plamo boards and websites. They can definitley sparks ideas and most give info on where the bought the items used to do their customs. Give you guys a few links.

    HLJ offers tons of these things, but the best things for me so far are the Armored Core Weapon kits. I love the 008 set's chain guns so much, I designed and entire custom around simply using them!

    I love HLJ's products, but between backorders and the horrible shipping service I've experienced in the past this looks to be a good new source to try out! Great find and thanks for sharing!!

    The only problem I have is knowing which ones will fit the transformers. I have know idea about the sizes.
