    Hey folks back with a little project of mine. Every since computron came out I knew i was going to cast his feet. Would have been a good idea for hasbro to come out with a five pack for the other combiners. These where cast with a fixed ankle tilt unlike computron that has a ratchet one.

    So wait...did you make a mould cast then remake them...like a self-made KO?

    Not a joke, but also not a criticism. Just wondering.

    Not a bad thing, just saying.

    Besides; I like KOs. Weijiang's the best I think.

    I don't think you need another person stating the most obvious thing ever, great job. I've had some interest in doing this recently, myself. Fine fine job. Truly smooth creation.

    I see you casted them as one solid piece and lost the ankle tilt in the process. Can the original feet be disassembled in order to retain the ankle tilt?

    Thought about doing this myself but missed the Toys'r'us sale and can't justify the cost. May try doing a simplified version of the PE V2 feet, but like the ratchet on the Hasbro feet better.

    What material did you use for the repro's? Is that a urethane? And a one piece mold? Was planning on using a two piece tin cure silicone myself, have had some bad luck with cure inhibition with platinum cured.

    What I meant was that it looks like you lost that point of articulation in the peg for it to tilt, meaning that those feet can only be posed in the A stance. Unless you're telling me that the peg is still adjustable and you can achieve different stances, in which case I would withdraw my position and admit I am wrong.

    Is it the Alumilite one? Think that's tin cure with urethane resin. Good kit for the price, mold/casting materials are not cheap.

    Yep that's the one. I get the high strength 3 mold and regards to the price hobbylobby has 40% of one item coupon. I use it all the time then come back the next day for the rest.

    That is an awesome cast; I would like to see a version with the peg fully vertical, leg spread is too much
