    I saw on tfsafari.com they had this part in stock. I've never ordered from them so I don't know their shipping times.

    So while masking last night I realized that the GF OP and WFC UM head are the same.

    Like the OGs in my last two threads said, we miss the old days. I miss how people would comment more. Likes are great but I like the back and forth.

    Well, I for one really like what you're doing with this project! I just haven't commented much because to be honest, I'm pretty blasted depressed at the moment.

    I'm home with our 4 kids so I joke with my wife that this is where I can talk to other adults.

    These are some depressing times. You should be proud that you admitted that and then shared it. I've been going back and forth myself.

    Nice! It's freezing here so painting isn't a good idea for me.

    I love the colors! This mold, especially after that head swap, is absolutely perfect for this. Any plans to chrome out the legs and such?

    I’m debating based on the difficulty of disassembly.

    I keep looking at my ER OP shins and thinking is there a cool way I can modify these. I see the pin in there that's from the siege mold. My son has Siege OP so I see what it can do. I'm just hesitant to take it all apart. This might be one of those just because it's there I want to modify it moments.

    What exactly would you want to do? Some others have taken the lower legs completely apart while others have swapped in the Seige legs for the ER. So it's doable but what do want to do? That way you'll know if it's worth the hassle.

    I think I like the siege legs but don't want to buy another figure. This is just me being creative and cheap. I'm making another distraction for myself. It's just going to be better for me to do what I really want to do. Scratch built Roller that doubles a jet pack....

    That's a good idea. I havn't gotten into 3D printing yet. Maybe later down the road. I'm going to stick with what I got and paint them when it's warmer.

    Those OP s came out great.
