    Some of you may not like this but I thought this would be a locigal upgrade. Twin Twist was a subterrainian drilling machine so he should be big bulky and ready to take some damage when boring away. I used an Ecokid figure (no idea what his name was and repainted the body into the classics jumpstarters colors. The head was modded to resemble Twin Twist with a thinned out nose and the turning device on the back of his head.

    awesome. I recognized the mold immediately, in fact, picked one up from WalMart on clearance for $4 which I am gonna use for limb parts of a combiner.

    Yeah, somebody better let him know.

    I love the custom, but everyone knows that Twin Twist sucks. :lolol

    Oh that is bloody BRILLIANT!

    And here I was being convinced that I could ignore that mold.

    Gee thanks, I may get sucked into doing this now ;)

    You have made a mold I would have been happy to avoid, look cool instead. Wow. It fits the character really well, and the matte and metallic painting looks great.

    Well, plus it doesn't take much for a mold to be an "upgrade" compared the the original Jumpstarters. :) 

    What the heck is this toy, anyway? I've never seen it before.

    Very cool; other than the stumpy legs, that mold totally works with the repaint you've done. Make me jealous...we don't get fodder like that here in Canada...

    Wait does this kid have a big ass fist on his right hand and arm? Because I think the show here is called Eon Kid.

    Maybe. From the other figures on the packages he looked like a knock off Megaman.

    By any chance you saved the packaging, and if so could you send the pic to me if you get a chance. I truly think it his Eon Kid, but I need proof. But on topic Twin Twist is nice, I use to have one, but got damaged early on, it was from a garage sale.

    Hey Shinobitron, no need I found it, the figure's name is Tremo and its from the Eon Kid line, so mystery solved.
