    He included templates for the fillers. Just cut them from styrene. And the hands are KFC's hands for mp sideswipe.

    The hands alone make them look like MP figures.

    Now that’s a fucking masterpiece! Amazing mate! This project is a show stopper. And your other ideas are just as promising. I hope doctor Wu does the mixmaster. He’d look amazing with these guys.

    I'd need a 3d printer right?

    I don't think he used any 3d printed parts. I'm not exactly sure how he attached the hands. @JSix is an active member of the board last time I checked; why not ask him?

    Thanks for the kind words everybody, especially years after posting haha.

    Thanks buddy! Unfortunately that mixmaster was cancelled way back when. Ive since then upgraded him with one of the 3P cement-truck cabs... but never got around to his hands.
    Same goes for Longhaul.


    If you copy-save the template i posted, print it out on an letter size paper. now you can glue it to a sheet on styrene and simply cut the shapes out with an exacto/olfa knife. I forget the thickness of styrene that I used, but it's cheap and you can buy a few different thicknesses of it on Amazon. To glue it to the paper, the easiest way is with spray fixative (for example, 3M super77). Once the shapes are cut, you can sand away any imperfections along the edges, and simply peel off the paper template. Now you can spraypaint the filler pieces to the correct color, and install them, either by just friction (though they may pop back out), or with just a couple drops of super glue around the backside of the edges. Pretty straightforward, and can be done in an afternoon with some patience.

    KFC sideswipe hands for Mixmaster and MP10B hands for longhaul (couple different makers of these I believe), and they're already black so no need to paint.

    Ok. Sorry, I keep asking questions, but do the KFC hands work for everyone else too? Or just for Bonecrusher?:)  and what kind of purple paint is used for Bonecrusher's hands?

    No prob dude, I found that the KFC sideswipe hands curl-up into a slightly tighter, smaller fist, needed for transformation on bonecrusher. The others were fine with slightly chunkier hands in their alt modes.
    I think Mixmaster's hands just sort of stick out in alt mode so you're propbably fine with any articulated MP carbot-sized hands on him.

    Bugger. I guess it’s a bit late to be doing combiner wars upgrades. Although toy world is doing the same so what do I know? Are you gonna get to the hands or are you just easing it for a while?

    Toyworld is in a weird situation where they have to rebuild their team since their old one left and formed Zeta Toys.
