    I absolutely love what you did with the lower body. But it clashes with the more organic nature of the upper body. Adding extra plating to the arms should help fix that. But for the rest, awesome. :thumb

    I plan to panel up the upper body with the same aesthetics as the lower body, tht is if I can find enough parts. :D 

    You can do it too :thumb 

    The tail is made from twisty ties and beads. Connected to the back plug of the hips.

    Eh? How is flogging a dead horse has any connection to your comment ?

    Hi, Ng! You are here too! Thanks!!

    Wow! You've made that figure 100% less hateful! Very nice!

    It's amazing that revising the legs can make such a huge difference to the overall bot mode!

    Painted? Nope, just touched him up. Aside for some armor plating I will be giving him to standardize the aesthetics, he is pretty much what he is.

    i cant believe it, the same mold was used for Galaxy's LioJack. Only difference is the head sculpt.

    Thanks, luckily in my place, this Lio Convoy is going for cheap. LIke I said, what bothered me was the legs if TakTom/Hasbro has taken extra effort in designing the legs, it would be hell of a great figure.

    Yup, the only that separates it is the head and color scheme. Other than that he is all the same.
