    I'm sure the pegs are different sizes, I'm not expecting a miracle. However, if the peg variance could be overcome would the length of the Robot Masters weapons be a decent length for the Classics.

    There's no doubt in my mind that this idea isn't something that hasn't already been discussed. So if someone just knows a quick reference or something that'd be great.

    Otherwise any and all input would be appreciated.

    Yeah, it's been done. The pegs are tiny and need to be seriously bulked up, but they look much better IMO.

    Those are just sitting there, I didn't modify them to fit snugly.

    Put hama beads over the pegs and they fit perfectly.

    They need to be longer, the tips of the gun should extend past the fists more than they do there.

    Possibly but I certainly prefer the look of these arm cannons to the missile launchers the Classics figures come with.

    Thanks for satisfying my curiosity.

    There was someone offering up repro MP Screamer null rays modded to fit the Classics. They looked perfect. It was in a kitbash forum either on here, Allspark, or TFans a month or so back. Can't seem to find the thread. The only problem was he wasn't sure if he could match the colors, I think.

    That is why I've never tried to customize and repro the RM ones here. I've yet to figure out how to do grey plastic. I've done it, but it was not anywhere near good enough to sell. It came out really soft and stretchy like putty. I could do the black for the coneheads and Skywarp. I could even get blue for TC ( though not an exact match ), just the grey for Screamer would be near impossible for me. No need to try if I can't meet the need for all 6 seekers.
