    I'm sorry if this is a repost from somewhere, but I have heard rumors for an upgrade kit for the universe roadbuster repaint. I think. I have heard NATO's name in association with this rumor. Is there a thread about it? Or a link or anything. I am VERY interested. thanks

    He (Nato) is currently working on it. I've only seen the 3-D model he's done for the head (looks good BTW) but he does plan to include other stuff in the upgrade kit. Everything will be made by creating a 3-D model first on his computer and then the mold would be milled out.

    I'll ask him. But the renders are done in solidworks which requires the program (or at least the solidworks viewer) to view I think so I'm not sure if it's even possible to post pics of the renders. I'll see if it can be converted to jpeg or even bitmap files.

    The head is being made so that it adds on to the existing head. He worked it out so that it won’t look weird or bulky though. Reason for that is that the existing head is fairly hard to remove since it’s anchored by a pin (not a screw or peg). Customizers with decent skills can remove it and add a new head but he wants even ones with no modding skills at all to be able to use the upgrade.

    that makes me happy, I dont like to destroy the original all the time and hotshot had a tiny head anyway. I was impressed with his ax, I am unfortunately not a fan of animated prime so I ddint pick it up. Cant wait to see the new stuff.
