Iron Man: Neo-Classic Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:45933  
Name:Iron Man: Neo-Classic
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:StrangePlanet  
Date Added:January 8, 2013
Base Figure:Iron Man: Neo-Classic
Height:6.00 inches
The RoML2 Neo-Classic Iron Man is a nice piece. Mostly. But its ankles are designed so badly that it's almost impossible to stand. So I had to fix it.
I knew the kind of ankles I wanted, and I found them in a little Kree-o Optimus Prime toy.
They're the Lego-like ankles actually, once you grind away all the excess with a handy Dremel. I made some holes in the feet and shins to place the new parts.
See that on the right in the 2nd pic that I ended up with (after some fixup and paint)? How easy is that to make? Seriously, I'm so glad Hasbro has made a new ankle design that is getting used, but it was such a shame that this otherwise pretty nice toy is just ruined with those ankles.
The last pic is a test of the range of motion before I fixed it up. Only the first pic is the finished piece after I repainted the shoulder pads and replaced the hands, which were too gimpy and small, with the much better Heros Reborn Iron Man ML's hands, and also repainted.
No big deal but man I sure do like it better now.
