    to be quite honest when i first laid eyes on this figure (Human Alliance Thunderhead) i immediately thought the mech suit would make a great Exo-Force homage. so after converting his hands into cannons and moving them right under the gun turret i turned him into a full mecha suit. no he doesn't transform anymore

    If I get these guys, it would be this one. Reminds me of Exo Squad.

    Very nice. I agree with the rest that they look like Exo Squad. You know they might be cool as Hulkbusters. Just saying.

    With some paint on it, that looks fantastic.

    yeah, this was about the only thing that could save this mold IMO. I wasn't happy with the crappy spider tank and thought the only good thing was the exo suit. Didn't like the sideways unposable hands either.

    That being said, this was a really awesome go at this. I'm glad someone did something good with it.

    My guess is yes, but missing his hands.

    The arms have been moved to a different spot. I'm not sure it can transform properly anymore. :confused:

    I really wish hasbro had put him in these colors. This figure really stands out in a more realistic color scheme like this. LOVE it :thumb 

    Even if it can't transform anymore, bravo to you

    I see that now, they are moved and the forearms are rotated. I think I have figured out what he did.

    I have my arms and turret modded, definately worth it. Though I will be throwing out the mini-man and turning it into either a drone a cybernetic exo-suit. If I go exo-suit I will turn the cockpit into a docking point for a brain canister.

    I love what you did here. As soon as I got mine I stuck Airlift (Skyhammer's minicon) in the pilots seat in mech-mode.
