RotF Rampage: Easy Elbow Modification


After modification:

Over on another thread, Boggs mentioned the lack of articulation in Rampages arms. I had to grab mine and check. Whoa! That sucks!

Five (5) minutes later, I bring you one of the easiest mods to add elbows to this guy.

Basic tools needed:
  1. screwdriver;
  2. X-Acto knift;
  3. disposable lighter

It's possible. Another solution would be using a tack nail as a flat headed pin. Drop some glue into the orange part (just a touch where the nail reaches into the hole), then put the arm back together and put the pin/nail in.

Nope. It keeps the arm [at] the exact same length.

Or you could use some good wire cutters, which make gripping easier. Thats how I did mine. Also while your at it try the leg mod.
