    Have tried the Gun mode...

    So, here is my experince

    His wing is the thing that you need to watch out. You need to pull the black parts out of his shoulder until all white metal stick out...

    And the wing rotation is stiff... make sure to rotate it fully

    But once all of it done, you will have enough clearance to clip the gun form handle. It is not hard click, just a soft locking mechanism with clear window.

    Don't force anything, if you have hard time, reevaluate the previous step.

    I think these dry apply ones (link below) would fit the bill too. Although water decals are cheaper, they take much more effort to apply (and are therefore so much more prone to screw ups), from softening, sliding it off, and cure time.

    The head is made from 3 parts and the eyes are a 4th part. They should have did the pearl white like the painted on Quietus

    Got mine today, Finally from ShowZ. Please overall but the loose left knee and the wobble from side to side on the lower part of both knees

    I fixed those and found a way to get more ankle tilt by removing the foot assembly and grinding the plastic on the inside part of the leg to allow more movement..EXTRA TILTAGE!! Removed some plastic to tilt the wings up more and took the ratchets out of the shoulder joint. Fanstoys have this thing where the clicks are too far apart on the shoulders, so either too close to the body or wait for your deodorant to dry looking arms. 20190126_153546.jpg 20190126_153001.jpg 20190126_201113.jpg 20190126_202103.jpg 20190126_203956.jpg My Friend Sixshot!!

    I will be painting a clear pearl over the whole figure when I am done detailing him

    Still amazed he can cross his arms (somewhat) cockily.

    One sticker slightly lower/uneven from the other to add to the natural feel perhaps? :)

    I ended up leaving the faction symbols off of mine for that authentic Headmasters feel.

    How do you fix the side to side wobble on both knees? This is the part that bothers me the most about this figure. The knee joint is so small it feels like it could easily snap off, and the side to side wobble makes it feel even more fragile. If there's a good way to eliminate the side to side knee wobble I'd love to try it.
