    Does anyone have a paint recommendation to color-match the paint on the hood?

    These are now printed in ABS so can with stand some punishment. They will never be as strong as factory injected ABS but have stood up to 4 transformations with out any damage.

    They allow the same arm location as the original shoulders and can be lowered. These are direct replacements, no pins to remove, only screws.

    Nice work! If anything could be done about that god awful neck it would be the icing on the cake. Wouldn't solve the need to deform the head so it can look up, but it would still be a dramatic improvement.

    How long before you produce the injected ABS version and how much yuan will you be selling it for? I absolutely need these.

    Looks great so far! I kind of actually like the slight difference in color between the original red and the replacement parts.

    Thanks, it's more prominent in photos than in hand. Ideally I would like a matched colour but ABS colours a bit limited

    I have a question on Hoodlums shoulders. Mine and the multiple Hoodlums I have had so far have all been forward and back friction but just watching a review (Linked below) and his sounds and looks like it's ratcheted. Anyone else come across this ?
