    This is the most greatest project in my history.

    Yes, Rung.

    Hi everybody

    A friend gave me this fabulous character, and i thougth that deserve a new articulations for his legs.
    I cut the legs with a scalpel (and very, very carefully) and then did a job on each of them, since they are not the same under the knee. Then, i used a ratchet joints for join them. I add paint apps with orange, metal blue, grey and blue.

    Great work, I'd love to do this with all of the battlemasers. What kind of joints did you use?

    Are those spares of figures you bought or did you buy them separately and if so where?

    very nice, proof is what I "rant" about.. where a simple "more" from Hasbro would improve a figure so much but they just don't...

    Can you show a picture from the back? I'm wondering about why you left the knees so high. You mentioned something that they aren't the same, but as I've yet to even see this figure, I've no clue to how it's built... as everything I've seen is always the front.

    Of course. The legs must be joined for the alt mode, so on the inside they are not equal; on one leg it has two pegs (up and down) and on the other leg a slot up and another down. Where have the pegs I just made a hole to put the joint, and I made a reduction back so that it can be articulated. On the other leg I had to remove the upper end and make the hole in the lower one to preserve the height.

    Well done I can't tell you how many times the kids and I have looked at the battle masters and tried to figure out what we could do. I feel very strongly ... sad.. that Hasbro didn't just charge us an extra buck and add them for us but... oh well. You sir did a fine job and now I'm off to track down some revoltech joints!

    With the paint apps he looks so angry. Haven't read LL, is this essential to his character or something?

    He's known for his eyebrows. That's not a joke. He looks pissed because his head sculpt makes it so added eyebrows give him an angry expression.
