Lockdowns rubber claw replacement

Just remodeled ROTF Lockdowns hand and claw, as musch as I love the figure I cant stand rubber parts on my TF's.
As I was gonna upload these to shapeways, i'm wondering wether to go a step further, pehaps make the claw more viscous or the hand more classics style???

That's pretty darn accurate.

I'd like to see what you would do to make it more vicious.

To keep transformation tight and still viable, maybe give the claw a pivot hinge so it can still turn to fit under the car. That's why it's rubber in the first place, I believe.

Otherwise, the accordion part looks out of place next to the spikes on the underside of the end piece.

It's actually a dirrect copy of the origianl rubber part. It's fitted with a pin so it can fold under the car, nothing to do with the material.

This is a good call, I'm thinking maybe adding a clip just after the hinged part so different bladed weopons can be added without interupting the transformation.

Update:

Made few suggested changes and uploaded to shapeways!

The hand is the same but the claw hook is now detable and interchangable with the "I killed your Master!" mega chainsaw. The chainsaw should still be able to be used in vehicle mode with the blade sticking out the front of the car like Blazin Lockdown.




Shapeways assembly.

Thanks!

Just adding a quick colour render. I know the colours don't match but it's just to get a better idea of the final look.
