    now that we know the windows can sit lower and closer together... (and that a bigger head can fit too!)

    who wants to be the brave one and test run some mods for the rest of us?

    edit: if anyone was to 3d print a larger head or be able to mass produce one that would be a good idea (especially for those of us without any other figures to head swap with)

    I think cutting the tab will make the chest/shoulder section loose. I won't know for sure until I have the figure in hand though.

    I plan on attempting both the chest gap and head swap mods.

    I was worried at first, but it's not too difficult to get the back symmetrical.

    This is the best I can do without making the chest pop or abs curve in. It looks the best when you don't peg it in, but everything is loose.

    Thanks, so it can indeed be angled downwards a lot. But can the abs still be pushed closer together at that angle?

    A czy Ty zrozumiesz coś jeśli napiszę do Ciebie w moim języku? :p 

    Sorry if I offended You somehow, but I was trying to show that we can take for a sure that english is not Your first language :) 
    BTW, I don't speak Your language, but I can clearly guess the meaning :D

    Yeah, people for some reason keep posting the concept art saying “but why isn’t it like this!!??” When his abs stick out way more in the film. For people wanting screen accuracy, they sure suck at comparing it to screen accurate pics.

    What Actar is getting at is that the abs are not meant to be angled that far inward and should have a consistently wide gap along the inner top edges. And no, his abs do not stick out as far as you're claiming. The tops stick out, but the bottoms are snug against his body:

    Look, I'm all for you spending your money on this, but don't try justifying things that aren't true to make yourselves feel better.

    Wasn’t pointed at actar, as he was actually using screen grabs. Read the post again ;)

    I did, but your response was to a response by GobotFool that was responding to Actar, and talking about people posting screencaps from the movie, not concept art.

    All he said was people not realizing how much it sticks out, idk where the screen cap part of gobot’s statement came from.

    I mean, probably from Actar posting screencaps?
