    I hated the one handed look and hated the fact they were soft rubber too. So I used a DOTM Barricade and used both hands and gave them to Lockdown. I don't think they fit in car mode but they make the bot mode look better to me. No more soft rubber and he now has TWO hands.

    As for transformation, should I keep the original left hand so that it can strill transform with that hand of use both Barricade hands for Lockdown?

    the lack of two hands has been my biggest problem with this figure since I got him. So this is really cool imo

    Yeah, I didn't pin them in so I can swap them back. Ball joint wrists might be the way to go too.

    I think they're up on the left near the base of the chainsaw. The hook is on the other side. It's a pic of the sprue where all the stuff is stuck together. Reallly tiny

    There's two hands, a chainsaw, a hook, and and an adapter to swap out the hook for the chainsaw.

    No, I haven't. They probably don't fit.

    This has been something I've considered doing as well... but if you ask me I would move Heaven and earth to get him to transform with both hands.
