    Say where did you get the hands? I didn't see them at your shop.

    I looked at Vangelus's review and it appeared that they don't, since they're basically just Prime hands with three more fingers instead of a lump. I'm wondering if the Eness hands will work with this set since they are designed to fit MP-10 as well. Hmm. Decisions, decisions...

    Oops, waitaminute. Have to make an update to my post. My mind was thinking MP-10 on Vangelus' review, not Overlord.
    The KFC hands don't interfere with transformation on Overlord because they aren't part of the figure. It's hard to tell from the pics on Shapeways, but the wrist adapter pegs in to Overlord's hand while it's out, then the hand swivels back in to the arm, as if for transformation, then the KFC hands slide on to the adapters mushroom pegs.

    In deed, Shackwave71. It will be lay aside when in plane mode, though it is not my wish but consider between things, i think that should be the best way to do.

    Okie dokie. I've gotten all the parts - hand adapters, KFC hands and Overlord. 1109171502.jpg The first thing I discovered was that the adapters don't fit as straight as the ones in the Shapeways pics. The ones I received are about two mm off as you can see in the pic. This isn't a dealbreaker so I kept them. I received the hands today, and the mushroom pegs on the adapters need to be trimmed for the hands to fit. I tried but I could not get the hands to hold the gun as in one of the Shapeways pics. Obviously if need be, I can simply take them off the regular hands and use those for the gun.
    Anyway, they do the job, they make the KFC hands look great on Overlord, and give him great posability but the adapters and/or the hands will need trimming carefully to make them fit correctly
