    Some of you guys replaced hands of your Carry with the hands of Rodimus Unicronus. How do you remove hands without destroying them? I just got my hands on Fan Style PH-02 hands (he-he puns with hands) and want to install them using printed adapter. I want to have more articulated hands + slitely longer forarms for better proportions. But in case it won't go well I want to have original hands intact to fall back to.

    Haven't seen anyone use rodimus unicronus hands, but i swapped mine with dx9 terror hands. Super simple to change out. Just a couple screws if i remember correctly.

    Yep I meant DX9 Terror (forgot his name). So can you tell me wich scres are you ralking about? I just can't figure it out. It seems that hands are connected to forehands via mushroom pegs with slot situated at the lover part of the hands. I just can't slide this mushruum peg out and to afraid to put more force. Is there some screw to loosen this connection a bit?

    I don't remember having to unscrew anything when I got the wrist extenders.. they're just mushroom pegs, as you said. It does take a herculean amount of force to get them off of there though. My fingertips were fucked for two days lol. If you have a very hard piece of plastic, you could use that to get it about half way, then twist/push it the rest of the way off.

    I suppose it is better to try this up when forehands is fully closed and locked in plase for robot mode? This moving piece of plastic with hindge to put hands away in vehicle mode doesn't seem very robust to me.

    I was wrong, it just slides out on the mushroom peg as others said. All my figures are upstairs and since i blew out my knee, I am at my wife's mercy for retrieval until i can walk again. I think i put a drop of oil in before working mine out, then cleaned out the slot before inserting them again. Can also lightly sand the mushroom peg to make it easier.

    Mine came right out. Maybe turn them a bit to loosen or spudger them out?

    Although I would've preferred light grey/white hands myself as well, the black hands are accurate to the source: the Studio Ox rendition.

    But then he should have had red lower legs (which I personally would've loved), but DX9 went cartoon at that point.

    So this is my first attempt. Not sure how I feel about it for now. Does hands look too small or is it ok? Also I think I should make connectors parts towards forhands slitly wider to give them moore cony and organyc look. What do you guys think?

    And some other poses with closed fists and nickle cracking action.

    Anyone in the market for a Carry? Mine has the gray hands from the Dx9 Terror already installed. I finally decided to let my non G1 stuff go so Carry will need a new home.

    I just opened my DX9 Carry that's been sitting his box for a few months after receiving him and...

    WOW! What an amazing figure. A rare 10/10 from me. Near perfect. The bot mode of RP is spot on and slaughters TT RP. Not even close. The target master rifle is too big/long for him to hold (but I ordered the smaller 4P rifle from Shapeways), but still a cool accessory. Transformation is easy and fun. Very intuitive and straightforward. The face sculpt is amazing and captures 1986 movie RP to a T. Some may think his alt vehicle mode is a little small... which depending on what he is sitting next to can be debated... but in bot mode, he is just the right size and fits in perfectly on the "Almighty HasTak Scale Chart". Really, really, really digging DX9 Carry. Very impressed. Quality bot all the way around.

    IMG_20190825_081214_210.jpg I got this recently at a bargain price that was too good to say no too. And I love it. Much more heroic looking than Rodimus ever was in the cartoon. It is more stylised than many figures but looks better for it as standard Rodimus visually is just a straight upscale of Hot Rod.

    Hi does anyone have the wrist extension seen in the image below? I think it was a 3D printed plastic part offered by a customizer a while back. Thanks, Tecrom Designs

    Yeah, I went searching for the the creator on his FB page but it has since been removed. Well if anyone know's where I can pick up a set OR has a Carry with one already installed please hit me up. Those short forearms have always been a deal breaker for me as I love that figure. Cheers, Felix/Tecrom Designs

    tbh, they were a f'ing nightmare to put on and take off... and in the end, it made him look a little goofy, so I just kept one on at a time so he could hold his gun properly... then I got the photon rifle off shapeways, which made me happier than trying to get him to hold the TM.

    Oh I thought he could still transform with them on. Never mind then. I hope DX9 revisits that figure and figures out a way to extend those forearms. Cheers!

    I made extentions for his forarms my self. But kept them plack and did a more blocky design to better correspond with his overall aestetics. I can make photoes in about 3 hours if anyone interested.

    Here is my blueprints. :)  Everything fits perfectly.
