    Ppht dude thats a simple cakewalk


    All you do is make a pre measured cut to remove the section of forearm you want to mod then replace that section you just remove with a part of similer blocy size

    use a drill to make a side hole through the side of the forearm part you want to reshape then dremil a empty space into said removed section of forearm to provide a empty u shape then drill a side hole through the. Fore arms remaining stump part you transplanted on earlier
    Finally build a dowl rod part onto the new wrist area and drill a hole into the back of the hand part

    (Its way easier then it looks)

    It takes a backheound in wood work . i can do this stufff in my sleep easy peasy

    Update on Prime
    Added ball joints to one of his shoulders 474D2BA4-F8E0-410C-B9B1-1DD9EA79209F.jpeg 0B98BAA9-5CCD-4A01-AED3-0FFC77FBEE8A.jpeg E7EB3342-9732-482D-A489-4D53D632AD62.jpeg 0E0ACE07-5EAD-4B8F-B39D-D007BE62F1D6.jpeg A673E084-2BCF-4F07-AA85-6A69E65956E9.jpeg

    Why can’t these kinds of figures be made into some kind of official release, and in Delta blue??? I’m serious I want an articulated G1 Delta Convoy cause I saw it in a dream once. If only petitions worked.

    Same. I’ve always wanted like a official version of articulated g1 figures. But it probably won’t happen.

    So I just said

    I feel like we as a community should come together to popularize such an idea and see if it gains further traction if we want it so badly, so that it may get Takara’s attention specifically. But yeah I think you’re doing great work and I’d like to see if you can do the same for Megatron if physically possible.

    Apparently it’s been done although it’s much harder
