    Good evening everyone, I don't know about everyone else but I'm amazed there are no 3rd party masterpiece versions of Getaway G1 or Idw yet?!?
    So I picked up a cheap well played with G1 mold as I still feel it's a pretty bang on look for the character. 20191203_205011.jpg 20191203_205023.jpg 20191203_204606.jpg 20191203_204639.jpg Poor guy has seen better days. I decided where I wanted to add articulation and build better proportions. I actually never had him as a kid so wasn't aware he had quite a bit of articulation already. 20191203_204807.jpg waist rotation 20191203_204820.jpg decent knee bend 20191203_204715.jpg elbow bend 20191203_204730.jpg shoulder all the way up 20191203_204741.jpg even a bit of wrist lol 20191203_204841.jpg almost forgot the toe tilt 20191203_211133.jpg so I started to see if I could split the legs and behold they were actually built this way so bu removing the hooking system and splitting the spoiler the first bit was pretty painless 20191203_211905.jpg 20191203_212420.jpg 20191203_223048.jpg then the butchery began! 20191203_233025.jpg 20191203_233211.jpg 20191203_232906.jpg Initially results by adding ball joints were quite pleasing so i moved onto ankle tilt

    So I'm going to add a lower groin area to have the ball joints coming out to side for better movement looking at my other figures bit of a learning curve all this. His arms will be made longer and swivel added plus a ball joint for his head/neck. Got rid of the worn old stickers will replace with paint, also glued a new wheel on to fill the gap for time being, Then a nice new clean paint job I'll keep updating as I go.

    Any questions or advice/tips are always welcome.

    Very nice! I’m glad a lot of people are adding articulation to g1 figures, it’s not something you see every day.

    Unfortunately I've had to sacrifice the transformation with the longer legs and arms, with the paint I was going to redo the classic colours all over but then probably going to add some finer details from the idw look. Be nice to get rid of the yellowing plastic.

    Well I had to stop him making a GETAWAY so I thought if I cut off his legs, arms and head while I was at it that should do the trick.

    Final bits done think I'm ready to start painting another night, filled out the back of the head a bit as it looked flat as if half was missing, a bit round his shoulders and any other massively hollow gaps but overall pretty happy so far. 20191209_204649.jpg 20191209_210508.jpg 20191209_213748.jpg 20191209_213815.jpg 20191209_215223.jpg 20191209_215833.jpg 20191209_224121.jpg 20191209_224449.jpg
