    Welcome to the gps clinic!

    Decided to procrastinate on a couple other projects to design and print this today. Definitely one of my favourite figures in my collection, his only problems are his missing gun and yellow pellets as well as the infamous gold plastic syndrome, which in fairness has only degraded this hinge.

    View attachment 28604460 300B1ECE-F39C-480B-8FBE-5A4484C4CBE9.jpeg 0F575CD3-755E-4A2A-A7D0-D4F1BD86291F.jpeg 34866BA3-1C4F-4749-A893-DB89E04B8001.jpeg 1A645640-2C7D-4F41-9F21-1FB973D6D913.jpeg 90A097B4-654B-4216-815B-5DE98807F539.jpeg

    The only problem with first attachment is that the head can no longer rotate the full 180 anymore however I’ll update this thread once I’ve finished designing and printing the wind deflector which may or may not end up doing the classics prime trick.

    thanks for reading!

    Update 1:

    designed a wind deflector based on the Botcon Thunderclash’s spoiler. Plugs into the screw holes on his back in robot mode for a Rodimus inspired back (ironic considering the botcon toy was a Rodimus repaint

    Finally someone doing this. Great work so far. I've been wanting the missing parts for Machine Wars Prime so he shot the pellet missiles.

    Fingers crossed you can make a fix for his feet too - at least for us with a wobbly Thunderclash!

    should be an easy job! I’ll get to work on those pellets after the wind deflector

    this’ll probably be slightly more difficult that the pellets, but before I do anything, have you tried tightening the screws on the feet?

    Well I mean I'd rather not since small parts have already chipped off. >.>

    my condolences, my thoughts at the moment would be to design a brace that connects the strut between the feet to the back of the ankle joint so the figure doesn’t fall backwards on itself
