FansProject Protector Armor - Adding Articulated Hands!

[This] is going from a huge ball joint to a flat round post unless your good at cutting or you've got the cajones too possibly mess up.

First, you need an extra Skullgrin:




Next, turn him over (you don't even have to transform him), and follow the disassembly as shown:




Here are the wrists (which basically just pop out once you take off the tank treads:




This is the wrist unaltered:



His wrist (truth be told) looks really ugly inside. It looks great and you can't see the butchered ball joint, but cutting plastic from the bottom of the joint and cutting the middle top half off then shaving the post to fit the original fist size so if I ever sell it I can put it back too normal . . . .

Now that I've scared people away from it, its simple for an moderate Radicon. Just take your time. Remember to shave the post between the fist and the ball joint then trim a bit of the ball joint closest to the fist. Cut the top of the ball joint off so it fits snugly in the fist. Close it up slowly. Make sure it doesn't resist. Finally enjoy the new hands!






[Protector] still transforms:




Just don't force it in; ease it in nicely. It will snap in and twist the wrist a bit to get the roof to snap together.

I had to modify the peg on Sidearm though so that the new hands can grip him:
