    ***View the final version of this project here: Heavy/Scratch: - 6-Bot Combiner Wars Liokaiser Redo Parts/Pants Former

    Because of my Combiner Wars addiction, I picked up CW Liokaiser despite having no clue who the character was or what series he was from. After watching some Victory clips to get caught up, I finally saw the huge difference from the screen to the toy that disappointed a lot of folks. No big deal though, just something new to work out! Started the battery of mods with a helmet repaint and the creation of Leozack from a spare Air Raid; the back jet portion of Leozack comes off and clips to the front chest in combiner mode via the Dezarus tail thingy. Remaining mods once parts orders get in:
    - custom Drillhorn from Rook, with a fat collapsible drill attachment
    -leg height extensions and repaint to white
    -hips, crotch paint to black
    ... fun project that will do this guy justice, since I had no idea he was such a bad ass in the Victory anime!

    Turn the legs so they're anime accurate and use the brawl molds height extensions. Would love to see how it looks.

    I've set him up like that when he's on the shelf, but I turn them for the knee articulation when I handle him. I'll take a pic with the extended brawls and turned legs and post it tonight. =)

    Cooool. But now you've got a naked Leozack running around while Liokaiser is combined - any way to attach the body as a backpack or something? (maybe the Sky Lynx weapons could peg into him as well as shoulder pylons or something....)

    Also, what's that paint color? It looks like a really close match...

    I initially looked for a way to do it, but there were a few issues... once the top jet portion is removed, there's nothing keeping the rest of the body (front torso and lower body) clipped together, and also, attaching it while keeping the combiner mode from looking clunky and kibbly would require removing pieces from or heavily modding Dezarus, which I'm avoiding for now.
    The paint is a P3 Privateer Press blue, but I forget the specific one. I'll list it once I get home tonight.

    Great job as usual! Could you show a picture of Leo without air raid clipped on? Im curious how you engineered the joining of them.

    Meh, I just flip the legs to face forward when posing if I want to bend the knees... =) there's shapeway parts that can add a bend to the outward facing configuration, but the prices aren't worth it to me.
