    ...Landcross? Holy shit guys, I think MPG Raiden is a MPG Landcross pretool. It all makes sense now...

    Are Kaen's feet tabbed into the legbots' thighs? If so, problem solved: I don't have Kaen in hand yet but I was trying to figure out a way to improve the proportions without 3D printed kits.

    It looks like it's just the normal Raiden connection being used. It's just that the Kaen hip joint is being is used instead of the Raiden hip joint (there's an extra joint in there to have wider hips for Raiden). Using the Kaen hips, his legs extend further down.

    I haven’t really done anything different from how they’re supposed to be attached aside from using Kaen’s hip joints rather than the ones used for Raiden.

    You can find a 3d printable passenger car. If sombody has the know how to make the couplings compatible You could modify the interior to cray anything you want.

    yes everything is forward. unless there is a picture somewhere so i can check to make sure unless raiden's ankle joint can push more forward then no but its all the way. just feels/looks like it just missed the last click but also it isnt missing it xD if that makes sense. just feels loose compared to the other leg

    You'll need to tilt Yukikaze's legs forward, not just the Raiden ankle joint but Yuki's legs at his hips so the top of his leg mode is flat instead of sloping towards the back.

    How far is however far they need to go to make the top of the leg mode flat/level.

    There was a really nice MP scaled Targetmaster add-on set for a 3PMP Astrotrain. I scooped it up a while ago during a holiday sale in hopes to be used with this set as an accent piece.

    If you can catch a deal, i would definitely take a look.

    My Kaen arrived today! Holy balls the box is huge! Which is funny because Cloud Across arrived as well, and TCP had to ship them separately since they were both so big.

    Fun fact since they use the same connection shape, this entire time we could connect Seizans guns to the legbots 1000031818.jpg

    IMG_2024-04-16-203458.jpeg It truly felt like I was the last one left standing at the station, but my Kaen has finally arrived at the platform. Right now I’m giving him time to enjoy individually. Combination will wait until the weekend.

    Anytime I see someone say that combiners should be done with skeleton frames, I'm going to sent them this image.

    Oh hey, news to me. I like to feel things out without the instructions. That part didn't seem to want to move at all, so I've never tried to force it.

    I think the only thing I've cracked the manuals for is to suss out the weapon storage options, since some of them aren't so obvious.

    I'm the opposite, at least with Masterpiece figures. I don't even bother with the instructions, I watch an Emgo JTI so I know what to expect and minimize the risk of breaking something while learning how it works.
