    Did some minor mods:

    - shaved a bit off his sideburns and antennae
    - painted eyes, painted body
    - cut groove in shoulders to help them snap to pecs better
    - new blaster
    - cut and reglued shoulder pads to remove bulk

    Nice and clean, I like it!

    How deep did you need to cut the shoulder groove? I've just started working on mine and was going to look for ways to get his chest to actually stay separated when playing with him (instead of closing back up the moment you even look at him funny).

    There are some pics and a description on the feedback thread for this figure
    from another member. I used this as a guide:

    I just shaved off a little bit, it was not that deep at all.
