    Anyone know how to mod thundertron's mechtech sword so it can actually be presentable?

    If not, are there any good suggestions for a replacement? (I thought about using drift's short swords)

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Drift's big sword is cool looking, but just generic enough to look cool when held by any figure, so go with his big sword.

    I can't remember where it was posted, but someone here recommended using Lego's to build a sword. Given the Bionicle/Hero Factory there are actually some decent blade weapons.

    I just did something simple and flipped it around where its undeployed position is sticking out front. I'd be afraid I'd mess it up (more) if I try to take it apart.

    Lewa's Air Katana could make for a cool pirate scimitar! Also, Brutaka's blades are HUGE.

    don't be afraid to just rip the mechtech weapon apart and just remove the blade by wiggling it off the peg. ;) .

    I'm glad i did.

    Or just break it. That tiny blue loop is very brittle. Mine arrived broken, and is essentially ready to go.

    -remove all the screws and with a bit of force seperate the two pieces of the blue box--you can break it if you want since you'll be throwing it out. Then you can seperate the transluscent blue piece from the claw witht eh same amount of force and since the sword is connected to the bronze claw on a pin, by bending the claw, you can pull the blade off of the pin.

    So once you have the transluscent blue blade by itself---I used one of those lego technic pieces that are double sided and designed to pop into circlular spots. if you ever had Bionicle figures, they're the same piece that go behind and in front of the original Toa's hips.

    They are 5mm so they work perfectly as a handle. With some hot glue I just attached the two and it works awesome. Need to just post some pics when I get a camera.

    I just snagged a generic pirate toy from Dollar Tree, tossed the figure, and gave Thundertron his saber and pistol.

    I took the mech tech weapon apart, ripped the blade out, used Sculpty to make a hilt, and called it a day. Looks really good all painted up gold.

    I modded mine somewhat heavily using PRID Cliffjumper's hammer & some JBWeld. I'll post pics later when I get home.
