    Hey. Has anyone purchased red alert and swapped the thighs and shins with say a lambor KO for example. Just to get that true cartoon look for Red Alert.

    Just wondering how easy it would be. As those Lambor KOs are pretty cheap.

    It's very easy. The pins of both are knurled but not a hassle to get out since they are easy to get to.

    Very easy. I used Tigertracks white thighs and red shins. The purple shins piss me off more than the red thighs. Purple on Red Alert is the biggest eye sore in MP History. Massive brain explosion by Hasui. I'd pick up another if Hasbro do the white thighs.

    Also tried using KO black shins for complete cartoon accuracy. Not really a fan it feels like it's missing something. Refer below.

    Looks great. Maybe Hasbro will release Red Alert in that deco, but I'd never count on it. I'd love to see him with silver thighs, too, to match his forearms and feet. Just curious. Greys and whites could be interpreted either way on the cartoon.
