    Update 2 page 3

    Hi Radicons I have got loads on the boil at the moment and yep here is another.

    This time something different for me NOT A MASTERPIECE Scale item.

    I have taken my vintage 80's BB and added articulated arms and i am looking at the legs as well.

    He is fully Transforming as well.

    Let me know if you like him and should I make more?

    Many thanks Dawgstar.

    You bet I am looking at the legs and waist plus the face/head.
    It is very hard working on a item of this size and giving it any form of movement but i will give it my best.

    Many thanks all for you input and taking time so far to look

    Could just hack him in half and stick a ballpoint in the middle? Crude but effective.

    Yep but i need it to be able to fit it inside so that the legs can still retract back in when transforming. I also want the knees to bend

    Have you thought about a pop-up head ala G1 Shockwave?

    But those arms are amazing. Well done!

    This looks great! So simple and effective. The only thing that could make those arms better is if the hands were black.
    I look forward to the leg mods. I think for the head, you could keep the current one, and replace the hinge with a ball joint, if you could find one small enough.

    Where did the arms come from? Sooooo much better than mine.
    As far as legs, if I may make a suggestion, the arms from the armada min-con Liftor work pretty well. Tho the resulting "knee" joint is pretty 1 dimensional. But any knee is better than no knee

    What can you do to the head? The rest is really good, but I think the head really lets it down. The rest looks really great though.
