    So, I've been meaning to take pics of this guy ever sense I mentioned this in the last thread about Universe Hot Shot... so here you go. Universe Hot Shot armed with a KO Star Saber from one of the Binaltech arming kits.

    And, so you can see how this affects his arm kibble by forcing back to his car mode position... doesn't actually look to terrible. Oh, and sorry for the glare in this pic... :redface2:

    Glare is not the issue in that pic--it being completely out of focus is.

    Still, very cool.

    I assume that Star Saber is bigger than the Energon Saber that came with Microman Kicker? :)

    I'm not entirely sure. I believe it was molded off of it so it could very well be upscaled for all I know... I, unfortunately, never had the opportunity to purchase the Microman Kicker when he was released (I say unfortunately, because I did purchase that horrible thing that Hasbro put out as Kicker for Energon... ugh!) so I don't have the original to compare it to.

    Thank you for the reply :D  I guess I have to dig it out (and see if any of the chrome is still on it) when I get the Henkei Hotshot.

    Microman Kicker wasn't that great, either. I heard lots of them had busted knees right out of the package :(

    Yeah, give it a try. If anything it's something for him. I don't even want to name every stinking weapon I went through to find one that fit... and I tried this one on a last minute whim one day before work! :lol 

    OUCH! I always figured he'd be great (as I have had a few Microman figures and been very pleasantly surprised with them), but that kind of makes me happy I didn't buy one. :sly:

    Some 3 3/4" Star Wars figure's weapons fit Alternity's tiny hands. (Well, off topic, but I remember you were getting a silver one?)

    As for Microman, we are even, then, because I've wanted Hasbro Kicker. Haven't seen him in person, so I had no idea what to expect :)

    Anything in particular that looks nice with Silver Alternity Convoy (and, yes, I was very dissapointed when I saw those hands... gah... why would they even make holes that shape?)?

    Yeah, looks like we're even. :)  Hasbro Kicker was like a bad GI Joe or something... no... not exactly... he was almsot like a GI Joe, but he had weired knee and elbo joints... very strange figure. And, it didn't help that they cut paint apps all over the place on him.

    That looks awesome. I don't understand why they didn't think to include some version of the Starsaber with him instead of the Henkei cannons or the Universe nothing weapons. By the way, since you have the Universe mold, any idea where the Henkei cannons would go in car mode?

    There's a set of secondary holes on the arms and they end up under the car in vehicle mode... so they're kind of like his exhaust ports in vehicle mode.

    I've got him the grenade launcher (?) which came in a bonus Clone Trooper weapon pack you get with those Saga Legends re-release figures.

    I've got the multiple of those, and soft plastic helps if to squeeze in that little hand :) 

    I've located Kicker's Energon Saber, but the chrome is in a bad shape :(

    Convoy looks nice with that gun. Going to have to see if I can find one now. :ev: 

    Sorry to hear about Kicker's sword dude... chrome never seems to hold out for very long over time. I've found that it's longevity has more to do with luck then anything. :(
