Kotobukiya double ball L option kit

Not a major first custom to post on here but it is one of the few I have that is basically complete with photos. After purchasing the figure, I couldn't stand the fact that his ankles were so limited in movement and that he, also, could not lean forward. So I 'fixed' it. Broke apart the chest and removed the feet, used the dremel with a high speed cutter to remove all the plastic from behind the chest, the removed the ball off the tops of the feet and replaced them with the sockets from the Kotobukiya double ball joint L options kit. After that, shortened/removed the stem between the balls (ok, that sounds funny and painful) and inserted a brass rod to join the balls together (sounds even more painful). Reassembled the figure and reshaped the right hand to be more 'repulsor-firing' correct. Will probably do the left hand soon but kept it the same for comparison's sake until I get another copy of the figure. Still debating on whether to repaint it or not. The third pic demonstrates the new ability to lean forward. Enjoy.

Updated this figure to also have light up chest and eyes and did a little wash to the lines. Lights have a bright, dim, and off switch. I tried to make it so the entire lighting system didn't affect the poseability of the figure and it came out ok. Still need to do a little tweaking and I missed a spot with the wash I see. >.<

Fixed the area that I forgot to wash and took some new pics.

I can do that but you'll have to give me a little bit, I was lazy and didn't take any WIP pics but I can crack him back apart and snap a few. No prob.

Any chance you could post some images showing the modifications you made to the inside of the torso? I tried dremelling out the stuff behind the chest, but probably went too far. I'd appreciate some pictures of what you did to make sure I'm doing it right.

Thank you for the comment. You are absolutely right about the adjustments. I'll be uploading an improved version soon with even more modifications.
