    Thank you! I've been meaning to get to this for a while. Giant is still a pretty good figure

    .

    I know how you feel. He's still a pretty good looking figure. Compared to CW Devy, he is a lot better articulated. I skipped CW Devy entirely.

    I skipped it too, I care more about figures on an individual level, so scale has never really mattered to me

    Made some out of styrene myself but I’m soooo glad someone finally designed these. I’ll be ordering next time I frequent shapeways for sure

    Definitely getting these. Any plans on doing something similar for the Fansproject Dinoking and Monstructor? Those are the last of the short combiners out there, I think.

    Awesome! Something I've done was extend his arms CW limb style and attach the fists purely with friction. Maybe a better piece could be designed for that as well?

    Interesting. Can you share a pic so I can get a better idea of how it looks now?

    An old pic.

    Getting the hands in there doesn't require any crazy tricks or magic, it should be easy to figure out how I did it. I couldn't find any other way to make it work anyway.
