    That’s looking great. Do they need to be removed for transformation? How come you posted here and not in the Radicons section?

    This is great and looks amazing... and what Hasbro should have done instead of cheapening out yet again. It was one of the two things that were enough to stop me from caring to get one, but I really love to see someone doing this as nicely as you did.

    Kudos!

    Excited to show off some new parts I’m adding to the kit. Rear Center Thruster. Still a WIP. But so far so good.

    Ha!! Thanks everyone!
    I have several orde4rs to fill right now but I'll open it back up for more as soon as these are shipped!

    The cost for the kit is $70 shipped in the USA. Overseas and Canada ad $10 USD
    What you get.
    Sider fillers with Turrets,
    Rear Tower filler and the Center Thruster. Most likely painting the thruster but the rest I'll leave to you guys.
    They will all be printed with a custom color blend that is as close as posable to the color of the Ark.

    Can we still use his toes at all or does the thruster attachment replace them?

    I mean you can take the thruster halves off if you would rather have the factory look but the thruster was designed to replace the toes.

    I will be painting it. It has been decided. :)
