    Been working on these for a while, I added some articulation to a KO Star Saber, pretty good quality. Pretty Straight forward but Victoy Leo was the king of all Bricks, he needed it worse IMO.

    This custom was a pain in the ass, lots of parts that connect, shit Victory Leo splits in half to for each leg so he was it was a real puzzle to figure out how to add Articulation and still be able to for Victory Saber.

    Star Saber He Transforms to Jet but I need to take better Pics. Also Saber include.
    Added,
    Elbows,
    New waist and thighs.
    Ball Joint on head.
    Hands
    Shoulder movement.
    I painted him "clean" mostly. I wanted him to look like the cartoon so I added the Blue around the forearms and white on the chest. I thought more cartoon accurate looked much better.

    Victory Leo, turned out to be one of my favs.
    Had to put outter hips on a ball joint to give him leg movement.
    Also had to custom build the cannons because I couldn't find a set on ebay.
    Neck on a balljoint,
    Added articulation to the arms, cut the bicep.
    Add some hands.
    Knees were a bitch, but I added some joints to give him more posable legs.
    Gave him a dry bursh treatment. I really like they way he came out.
