Metalhead nick articulation mod.

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hello, I´m a fan on Metalhead and I was very disapointed with the 2 p.o.a. arms of the recent nickelodeon version so I decided to add some articulations. I´m not a regular customizer so I hope to be lucky. I know that idea isn´t new, I´ve seen some other examples and I would try to go further and add something more.

The materials:

Metalhead Nickelodeon (Playmates)




(I love the exploded views)

Action Atom (hasbro 2005), brought in a flea market for 0,60€ just for his hml type of arm articulations.


They fit very well without any socket adaptation.



This is my plan for the arm construction because I don´t want the elongated arms I´ve seen in other similar customs. And the way to mantain the shoulder and elbow pads shape from the original.



C&C are welcome.

Thanks.

Trimed upper arms.


Assembled arms, joints works perfect. It was much harder than spected, those arms had unspected inner holes and long pegs that I had to avoid.
