    As requested by Tfan14, here are some tutorials on the weapon mods I did for my custom ROTF LC Prime.

    Removable Swords

    The sword mod is pretty easy. Unfortunately I didn't take any WIP pics so I hope you guys can understand this:

    Custom Gun

    The gun is basically TFTM '07 LC Prime's gun, with the following kibble:

    - Barrel made from the plastic body of a ballpoint pen. Just find one that fits into the existing barrel. :) 
    - TFTM LC OP mini - gun kibble that pops out when you flip the gun over his hand, and one of those cylindrical truck thingies.
    - TFTM VC OP shoulder joint assembly(to connect gun to the magnet on his forearm), tip of his missiles, the lower part of his smokestacks (as scope), and assembly connecting his smokestacks to the rest of his cannons (as holder for the fuel cylinder/whatever you call it sticking out of the top of my custom gun). These parts are encircled green in the pic below:

    I then added two rare earth magnets
    - one inside the gun which attaches to the pin on the bottom of TFTM '07 Prime's articulated hands
    - another to attach to the magnet on his forearm (see sword mod above)

    Whip up a nice paint job and there you have it. :)

    Nicely done mampy! I'll have to dig up my primes guns so I can give this a shot. Will have some creative liberties ofcourse, though.

    You're welcome. They are pretty hard to find in the Philippines, but some sources I've found:
    - Magnetix or Magnext toys (in TRU or TK)
    - cheap magnetic costume jewelry earrings
    - those oriental magnetic therapy shops sell rare earth magnets on patches for your skin

    Good luck! I wish I could find another one myself so I can make his second gun.
