Pledford[TK] Posted January 14, 2017 Report Share Posted January 14, 2017 Ok so I decided to start a build thread on this. I am building this for my 6 (almost 7) year old daughter. These "battle buddies" were on clearance (and may still be) at Target for $49. So after we got it home and played with him it was time to cut and hack it apart. 1st thing I did was take apart the blaster which I will use later. A lot of it comes apart but removing the screws. Won't be able to use the helmet. It's way too small, so I will order a rubies 2 piece. I am starting with the forearms. There is quite a bit to gut out. I did not realize how long it takes to gut out everything inside! One thing I decided to do was line the inside of the forearms and thighs with white craft foam. This will just make it more comfortable to wear for her. I then glued inner strips to the forearm using some scrap abs from my TK build and used e6000 That's day 1 and 2. I'm pretty tired already. I will say that it seems to be a bit more work than my TK build. For one there is way more to trim and sand. And also the plastic is harder to work with than abs. Anyway the good thing is that I don't have to worry about it passing for any kind of approval except for the approval of my daughter which can be a bit tougher than 501st.
