    Being cooped up, I've been doing some customs. While going through the parts bin, I've been playing with the ball joints and such. I decided to collect a few and start a thread for Frankenstein's monsters.

    One I've posted before, Obi-X-Brawn-Kenobi:

    Claw Jaw Saur-Primal. This one oddly works.

    Even with my parts bin, I can't finish Alchemist Prime.

    Is that the Club Ramjet head?
    Why is that in your parts bin?

    I don’t have much of a parts bin, for better or worse. Might have half a G1 Omega and half a G1 Metroplex somewhere, though. Metrotank? You got me thinking now...

    Not exactly parts but I discovered a few months ago, CHUG Megatron has a socket that accommodates Titanmasters and can attach himself to G1 Scorponok unconventionally.

    Behold these affront to Primus!!

    Buy a few Ebay bulk lots for one figure/replacement part in them and you'll have a parts bin. :)

    No you don't. Parts usually come from broken toys...

    This wouldn't be too bad if I had better arms for her.
