I am riding my MOTU high so I decided to make my favorite villain from the He-man universe .... TrapJaw. What's not to like about a guy who has a cybernetic arm that has weapon attachments that are interchangeable? I think the Four horsemen did a really good job with the figure they made back in 2002. But there were a few things that I felt needing improvement. First was his lower jaw. In the 2002 cartoon it was a lot bigger and looked like steel trap. I wanted to find something comparable but couldn't think of an existing figure with a jaw like that. After a looooong and grueling search I found my answer at my local swap meet. I found a beat up Transformers animated Grimlock. His jaw was perfect and the toy was thrashed so I didn't feel bad taking off Grimlock's robotic head. He is now in permanent T-rex mode on my workstation. I also wanted Trap Jaw to have robotic type boots and found that Flashpoint Cyborg's lower legs worked great. I won't bore you with the details on how I made it here, I will be posting WIP's and details on how I made him in the Custom Workstation thread. As always thanks for all the support and awesome comments on my customs and God Bless!!

Recipe:
Head,left arm,shoulder pad and right hand from 200x Trapjaw
left arm from LCBH Stryker
Upper right arm from LCBH Superpatriot
torso from random Wrestler
pelvis and thighs from ML Mr. Sinister
Lower legs from Flashpoint Cyborg



P.s. I posted some pics of my trip to Wondercon in the Off the topic thread. Check it out you'll be glad you did. LOL

SWEET! I like the work you put into the lower half there, it totally paid off! Lets talk about the genius stroke to use ol' grimlocks mouth! Worth the sacrifice. Nice stuff!

Thanks Pulpy, but I really think I just get lucky finding parts that fit. I guess sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. LOL
