Thanks for the compliments, still have to work on the helmet. I don't like Habro's cheap paint job, I am adding more paint detail to it.
Wow, that is a great Cody upgrade! I've been thinking about doing the same thing. Did you swap out the arms completely between the #41 and Cody or just dremel the shoulder pads? I'm wondering how you got the arm band too.
I was shocked how much shorter Cody was when I saw pictures of the figures. I'm going to have to do this same upgrade I think!
I chopped up the original Cody Arms with an Xacto including the armband which was a real pain in the ass to keep as one piece with the shoulder pads, but it worked. The armband was just hollowed out, and then slid up the arm of the SA #41. I know it sounds stange, but the less I have to glue the better.
I had to sand down the existing shoulder pads on the SA 41 in order for the new pads to fit, also had to chop down the band part of the ball joint lower than everything else in order for the arms to rotate up and down and to the sides freely without rubbing into the new ones.
