    Still a WIP. Too much blue is still showing (noticed it even more so in the pictures) and the head isn't quite properly attached. However, after seeing a number of people on this site kitbash their Marvel Crossover Wolverine into Trailbreakers, I decided to try the same.

    The head is acustom mold of an Alternators Swindle head. The forcefield generator is a custom mold of the G1 toy version. I bought them online. I tried to remove the claw mechanism but the arms were wedged together so tight that I couldn't disassemble the arms. Ultimately, I just cut the claws off though maybe at some later date, I can hopefully remove the mechanism.

    So here's the 90% complete version. Is it at all possible for someone to advise me on how to properly attach the head (without resorting to superglue) or removing the claw mechanism? If not, I'll just put on the finishing touches myself.

    I couldn't remove the claw mechanism either, I just cut off the claws and sliced off the button haha.

    Nice job though! :D
