    [​IMG]So I was able to model and 3D print his neck and made a bit taller for a bit more down neck articulation :)  just had to tweak the front side of his neck for clearance as it was hindering any further down moment even with the extra height.

    It’s 1/16” taller so you gain 1/16” more down movement. Those familiar with this figure know he has none.

    I did experiment with a taller neck which allowed for more down movement, but his neck started to look like a giraffe neck....so the 1/16” extension was my compromise.

    And yes he can still transform with it :)

    Great work! Will you be sharing the file for those of us interested in printing our own? I have 4 of this mold so far, I am hoping they release a white version soon!
