Nice! Has anyone done something similar with silver centurion? I’m on the fence about picking him up - he looks amazing, but a bit more limited than I’d like articulation wise (torso and neck up/down in particular).

Xcorpeo showed a great Titanium Man mod for more torso range! I never mod my figures, but it looks like it worth it to make this attempt.

Thanks for this! I might give it a shot as well.

That mod has been being done to MS figures for years. Maybe it’s about time the company actually incorporated it into their figures?

BTW, if you cut away too much the barbell joint won’t stay in and you can ruin your figure.

I had the same thing happen from eating too many french fries.

I thought about it because it's something I usually do immediately to all MS figures but for some reason I didn't feel like he needed it. I'll have to play around with him again to see if I still think that

Edit: I went ahead and did the mod. I didn't even try to get back motion out of it because his backpack won't allow it but like any other MS figure it greatly improves his playability

Am I the only one that noticed that the hands from MS Silver Centurion with effects, and the effects for that matter, fit into the hand pegs of ML Silver Centurion perfectly?

Perhaps I missed it in a previous posting?

I might be reading this wrong, but if I'm not, those effects come out of the hands. I only say this because someone else thought they didn't

The blue effect pulls right out of the hand. The other effect is designed to fit on the end of a closed fist and does not come off. However, both sets of hands, with attached effects, fit straight into the ML wrist peg for Silver Centurion.

Awesome - I think that seals the deal for me - just ordering him now!

Diamond Comics has SCIM arriving in comic shops on 8/4. At this point, I guess we believe it if we see it.

Trying this Imgur thing for the first time. Hope I did this correct… 8 photos scrolling there if I did…. These are the MS hands/effects inserted into the ML figure. Questions?

Nice photos Gladiator! Did you swap any heads beyond the “sun glassed” head?

Yes, if you look closely at the same photo with the sun glasses head, I swapped it with the MS head, same photo. The head will sit on the body but doesn’t attach. It will take a bit of work to fill the gap and blue tack it, but I like the MS head on it and the paints are real close to a match!

Aw for a second I thought you were able to combine the MS Silver Centurion with the ML one. I'll keep dreaming.
