    MMC Ocular Max version, Assaultus. Had the chaps for a few months now, just got round to combining them.

    Despite the widely known loose leg joints, I still love it, looks so damn good. Way better in the flesh than in pics.

    Just some generic battery powered lights I got at a craft store on clearance... like a dollar for the pack :D 

    Would you be on the "new body" list or the "eat all your moons and destroy your wretched little planet" list?

    Can't believe this never occurred to me, especially since I have a few sets of the copper wire version laying around.

    I dunno if this is a repost, but I recently saw this image again and wanted to share it :) 

    If I already shared it, please remove.

    It's fine, but you got Sideswipe on instead of Red Alert

    UPDATE:

    So back on 16 December 2020, I commented about how the thumbs on my MP Ironhide and Tracks were splitting, and about to fall off.

    So, I ended up purchasing some KFC articulated hands for each. In my opinion... it was money well spent. And it was either that, or I could just watch as my Tracks and Ironhide become "thumbless", and that seemed like no fun!

    So... since these are KFC hands, l figured l'd let KFC Transistor talk to Ironhide and Tracks about their new hands.

    20210114_173856_HDR~2.jpg
    "So Tracks, what are your thoughts on your new, articulated hands?"

    "Well Transistor, I think they're pretty fabulous!!"

    20210114_172905_HDR~2.jpg
    "And why is that?"

    "Well... now I can maneuver each finger separately!! That simple feat was impossible before!"

    20210114_151705_HDR~2.jpg
    "I mean... just look at what I can do with my hands now!!"

    "There are so many things I can do with my fingers and hands now... the possibilities are endless!!"

    20210114_151812_HDR~2.jpg
    "And thankfully... I can still grip my weapon!"
    20210114_151256_HDR~2.jpg
    "Do you feel lucky... Punk!?"

    "What a wonderful story of self improvement!! How about you Ironhide? What are your thoughts on your new hands?"

    20210114_174004_HDR~2.jpg
    "Ah'm glad ya asked Transistor!!"

    "Prior to mah upgrade, I could'a never separated each of mah fingers. But now... Now I can yell..."

    20210114_163805_Burst01~2.jpg
    "...STOP!! ...and I can hold my hand out like this to be all authoritative and stuff!!"
    20210114_164012_HDR~2.jpg
    "Ah never thought us outdated Autobots would ever be able to have independently moving fingers like you 3P folks!!"
    20210114_164348_HDR~2.jpg
    "Too bad ah missed out on the Shadowfisher upgrade to my hip-skirts and caboose!!"

    "But at least we can point now!!"
    20210114_164701_HDR~2.jpg

    "Thats right Tracks... Ah just love pointin' mah finger at stuff!!"

    "Sigh... too bad there's no upgrade for me. You'd think that after all this time, someone would have made new hands for ol' MP-09."

    20210114_165020_HDR~2.jpg
    "You'd probably think that a figure costing over $200.00 USD shouldn't really need any upgrades what-so-ever... but... at least I can karate-chop stuff!!"
    20210114_165538_HDR~2.jpg
    "Still... given the simplicity of this wrist connection, I can't believe no one developed any new hands to help ol' Roddy out!!"
    20210114_172236_HDR~2.jpg
    "I mean REALLY!!"

    "Sorry buddy...tough break!!"

    20210114_174158_HDR~2.jpg
    "But... at least we have a couple winners with Tracks and Ironhide!!"

    "So guys... what're you gonna do now that you have articulated hands?!"

    20210114_173221_HDR~2.jpg
    "I don't know about Ironhide, but I'm gonna grab the latest issue of 'PLAY-BOT' and..."

    "Ah think that's quite enough Tracks... See Ya'll Later!!"

    20210114_172051_HDR~2.jpg

    Cheers!!

    UGH!!

    I am sorry to hear about that!!

    That is one of my biggest fears anytime I am engaging in Transformer surgery!!

    Even using the tiny Japanese Standard screw drivers that KFC and XTB include with their figures... it still can be risky and I've had a few close calls!!

    My favourite screw driver is the Japanese Standard screw driver that came with my Shadowfisher MP-10 head/matrix!!

    Fe2312nq-750x750.jpg

    For some reason, the Shadowfisher screw driver feels like it more securely grabs the screw than any other JS screw driver I own.

    I have a one-armed KO Soundwave that came with spindilly articulated fingers. I purchased it from Best Grey's Amazon Store many moons ago. But from time-to-time, I still hear of people acquiring these KO Soundwaves.

    Might be an option...

    Put a rubber band over one of the stripped screws and it should give you enough friction to remove it.
