Falcon arm mod w/ tutorial

So, when I first posted my RnR and Clutch short sleeve mods, I've had a couple of requests to post how it's done. Here's the threads for the original customs of them:
http://www.hisstank.com/forum/g-i-jo...hort-fuze.html
http://www.hisstank.com/forum/g-i-jo...-new-arms.html

I finally found suitable arms for Falcon and did it for him finally too. Here's some WIP pics and steps.

First, remove his hands and lower arm. Cut the cuff off the arm. Then make a hole down the middle.


Then on the upper arm/bicep, you have to trim around the bottom as shown:

This is so the cuff can fit over it.

The cuff is stretchy so you can stretch it over it (just trim more if it doesn't fit) and that holds it in place.


After you are happy with the fit of the sleeve, then you just pop the arm you want in there onto the figure.

Thanks for the lesson! I know others on here are like me and hate those arms that Duke, Clutch etc. came with.

Great idea! Now only if his head sculpt didn't make him look... well... "special."

Doesn't help his face any, but still a vast improvement!

Great tutorial, brilliant idea!

This one took a while to finally do just cause there was no bare arms that matched his face's skin tone. That damn face again...haha. I had this planned for a long time, just never knew when I'd get the right arms.

HAHAHA yeah wtf kinda head sculpt and look is that? But I think strangely enough there has been worse. The paint jobs on the figures have been sad, namely for the camo(its like Hasbro has retards working there these days).
