    Is that a ball neck? Could you give a picture tutorial how to do that?
    Looks great.

    Yep. I forgot to cut some of it away, so he can't turn his head to the right very much. I'll fix that when i get the repaint.
    I should be able to put up a tutorial tonight.

    Oh wow, that looks awesome! I just picked this guy up yesterday and his head position kind of bugs me, so I can't wait for your tutorial!

    just to let you know, you will need super glue, a really good sanding tool, and a parts former.

    It looks okay, I just need some clearer pics, I need the intructions to be a little more detailed, and I need to know what leg/arm joint you used for the neck (Like from what figure).
    Thanks though. They look good so far.

    1. Pull of his face (like Optimus Prime). It might seem like you breaking it, but don't worry
    [​IMG]
    The back of the head should look like this
    [​IMG]
    Sand down the circled area like shown in this picture
    [​IMG]
    This is my partsformer. Forgot his name. It's a failed repaint (my first)
    [​IMG]
    I used the uper arm since it has a ball joint
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    detach the arm and then cut out the ball join like this;
    [​IMG]
    Remove the lower end of the arm, so your left with the uper arm
    [​IMG]
    With you ball joint piece sand down the base so it fits with the chin
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    with the arm you need to sand down the sides so it fits in the open chest slot.
    [​IMG]
    now pick up the red head piece
    [​IMG]
    Remove this piece with a knife, or other tool
    [​IMG]
    you can now put this piece on his head again (if you want)
    [​IMG]
    or you can place it in his arm
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I used Krazy Glue
    [​IMG]
    A metal sander like this
    [​IMG]
    Instead of holding the piece in your hand it's better and safer to use a table clamp
    [​IMG]

    How did you remove the pin on that arm? And do you need to cut down that wire-thing on the upper arm? Thanks! My custom Fallen is almost done.

    I just cut it off. That wire thing is on one of the sides that needs to be sanded down, so yes. what are you using to thin the piece?

    I was a bit confused at first, but now that I've reread it I understand! Awesome tutorial, I can't believe how innovative people are with modifying these. I'm tempted to try it with my Fallen, but I probably won't since I'm only a beginner. It's pretty funny though, because I actually do have a Dropkick figure, hence why it's tempting, lol...

    Well nice job with the ball joint neck. i did the same thing but went a little esier route, "yellow-sub ball joints". They are sold at hobby-link japan.

    Anyway for your paint job. i would use a black base, and gunmetal, a splash of a sea green, and silver. And for the flames obviously red, orange and yellow.

    This was my first too. It's pretty simple. If you don't have a really good sanding device it wont work. I tried using sand paper, but it didn't work.
