    Hello Autocons!! Finally got my hands working on this fig. And so far, the result came out good for my taste. He looks a tougher, meaner. I also gave Furos some minor touch-ups and articulation.

    My ONLY quibble with this is the canopy. The figure is given this awesome wear-and-tear scheme, but has a pristine clear orange canopy.
    Other than that, beautiful work!

    The legs still stay in place. A little loose but they don't detatch easily cause put a bit amount of crazy glue in the joints to give them more grip/friction.

    Furos is the little guy, a Titan Master.

    one could surmise that the canopy is clear because it was recently replaced due to frequent breakage , or that it is made of energy.

    awesome work by the way, I love it.

    Thanks dude! I used a box cutter to split the legs, and a saw cutter to split the pins. You can use pliers to cut the pins.
