    Designed a set of "universal" combiner feet that feature a ratcheted ankle similar to the Combiner Wars Computron feet. I'm using these on the oversized WeiJiang Defensor bots, but the ankle joint section on top of the ratchet can be configured to work with other combiner bots from other companies as needed. The ratcheted ankles are superior to ball joint style ankles when it comes to stability for large scale MP combiners, since ball joints wear out and easily become loose over time under heavier/bigger bots. The ankle section slots onto the feet, so it can be easily swapped out as needed if moving between different combiner port styles. There are also cutouts that can be fitted with spacers/risers to negate any forward/backward floppiness that's often an issue on these larger combiners. Unfortunately, due to size, these are not available for sale.

    Yeah, they are more or less a blank slate that can be done up in any style cosmetically.

    Looks good. You might be able to make the pivot for the other foot that are out there.

    Yeah, it can definitely be adapted to other types of feet if needed, like adding it to the normal HFG combiner wars feet.

    That looks awesome.
    I really need to learn to do this myself one day.
