Mod - KO Barrage (Remold)

This is a KO G1 Barrage inspired "Insecticon" but re-moulded, not very sure if it is an original character by itself (Seems that deluxe Insecticon Barrage is redeco from Beet-Gadol of Armored Insect Battalion Beetras)... anyway, the insect legs are not hidden in robot mode, abut not really affecting the aesthetics...

The original KO has only elbow joints for movement, for the whole arm... so decided to mod it... seems easy, but later realised that the arms will be blocked by the wings if just do a direct-rotating joint... so have to make a pull-out-rotate joint, took a damn long time... gave it some paint touch up some time ago, and now decided to give it a rifle, to even up the fire-power with his other Insecticons counterparts...

Back-view of 1 of his arm joint...


Nice insect mode...


Like the real Barrage, this can open its wings too!!!!


Going to touch up on my oversized G1 Devastator next, must give his face a make-over...

p.s.: Finally some progress on the order from TaoBao thru' a local agent... now still got Alternator Prime, Energon Constructicons, and Ultra Raker left to confirm only... yeah, all KOs... Spent two hundred plus dollars on TaoBao, broke now... broke, but happy...
