Dang, I didn't think about the protos being the peg system. That's how some star wars prototypes are also so it makes sense. I think I am going to have to get a beater and break it open to see. I will update with my findings once I start this. I really want to make a custom of that picture.

I tried doing some searching on this Bryan. But I just can't find any good information. Slu customizers seem to be more into just painting an already made figure other than dismantling a figure and making something out of parts. Although, I would imagine anything is possible.

Thanks for looking Joe. I think experimentation is the only way to find out. Going to try to get a few beaters to crack open in a week or so. I will let you know and take pics so if in the future someone wants to know they can see.

I haven't forgotten about this, just been busy. I did get all the parts in that I needed except I cant find a decent soft goods coat for the look. Hopefully can start working on this soon and will take good pics.

I did get started on this , but it is a harder work in progress than I initially believed it was going to be. I am taking pics as I go and will post it all up when I get closer to a finished product.

I got one to get the arms and legs off and then I stopped and haven't been back yet because of time. The torso is a hard one to figure out though. I did take good pics which I will try to upload tomorrow on here. The torso of the one I started taking apart is a two piece similar to the star wars figures, but the connection isn't a straight line connection. It will make more sense when I get the photos up and can show you what I am talking about. I haven't had a ton of time to revisit this custom but I will get it done (eventually).

Going to spread this into two posts. The first post are the unaltered pictures prior to me adding the color lines so you can see the seems where the torso connects. Some are thumbnails and the ones I will show in the next post that I added lines to I left large in this post so you can see the unaltered and then the altered in the next post to see what I am talking about.

Here are the pictures I copied and altered. The only alterations I made was adding a red line that runs along the seem where the torsos meet.

Wow, I have never seen a production starting lineup dismantled before. This is so interesting! Thanks for sharing. Can't wait for more pics.

As you can see the arms and the head and legs connect via the post with the larger ends like star wars figures. Due to this I was unable to remove the head successfully as this type of post is hard to remove without creating breakage. The neck post appears to be slightly smaller in circumference just like one of the kenner star wars first 12. I attempted to remove it but it began stretching the neck post and I was worried about breaking it.

The torso appears to be similar to kenner star wars having a male and female set on the inside center so the two torso halves not only fit together on the outer perimeter of the torso, but also the male and female pin in the center fit together.

Here is where this torso differed from kenner star wars figures. It is important to note the original shape of this figure leaning forward pitching as that may play a part of why this is like this. I will know if more are like this once I begin deconstruction of the retirement figure which I have not yet begun. The torso halves have this weird part seem line which does not run on one horizontal plane. The line makes ups and down and of course contours with the torso but the up and down of it is very odd. even on the bottom of the torso you can see the line isn't straight it still does this up and down weird way of fitting these together. Think of these like teeth. The two halves fit together perfectly with these teeth, unfortunately this makes it very difficult to see a way to open this torso. These teeth would be thin at the point. See the following pic:



Imagine the black line is the horizontal line which you can normally see on the torso. The arrows show where these teeth go above and below this normal line. At each peak the teeth smaller (makes sense right being a point) but this also makes them easier to break and nearly impossible to say put an exacto knife blade into the torso and cut the seem area like I normally would when opening a figure. This has me kind of stumped for how to open this as I need the torso to survive so want minimal breaking/cracking. Hope this makes a bit of sense.

Joe, I added the above little write up about the issue I have encountered so far.  I will know if these same teeth type areas are on all torsos once I start on the retirement figure.  If this doesn't make sense to you please let me know as I want people to be able to understand what I am trying to say. This is not a showstopper for me, just something I need to ponder on how best to crack this torso open and not compromise these areas so I can reuse the torso.

It all makes sence to me.....although I would never try something like this. I know I would break something. Great work! Keep the info coming! Once it is all done, I am going to link this page to the Facebook group. I know a lot of guys would be interested in seeing this. Thank you for taking the time out and doing all this work.

Any updates on the Nolan Ryan?

And as for the original topic, the video has over 7,000 hits. How amazing!

It's awesome that the video has had so many hits. Huge congrats on that.

I will be honest and say life as well as laziness has gotten in the way of the Nolan Ryan. Embarassed I will get back on it ASAP. I apologize for back burnering the project, but now things are slowing down a bit so will kick it back to the front. Hopefully have some progress to show by this weekend.

No problem Bryan. I just purchased some slus last night and the lot had a few Nolan Ryans in it. Make me think of this thread. Hope all is well!

My camera is mia so these are off the phone. I will fix them with arrows and lining as the above are, later when I am at a desktop for now, I used the arms off one figure (the one above), the torso off another figure,and the head and legs of the retirement figure. The retirement figure is the only one that had the torso separation in a straight line. The above figure was already outlined, and the one I got the torso from you will see below.













The coat is a bib fortuna vintage coat and the hat is some modern GI Joe hat. Not exactly big enough but until I find a better one this is what I have. I am holding it on in the pic as I don't want to glue it until I am sure I cannot find a proper size one. The figure still has all points of articulation that it had originally.

I am going to take a few more photos of the torso of the retirement figure. All the legs were in a different stance but all joined the torso the same way so this is likely how they all are. The arms and heads also inserted all the same way, but the retirement figures neck and head is actually a tad larger scale than the other figures. I didn't get a good picture of that before using it, unfortunately. I also still need a belt and holster to match the pic.

Does anyone know of a decent 3 3/4 scale cowbot hat? I just need the hat as the one I have is just a bit to small. I tried to trim the head and shaved it down a bit, but I am not happy with the look.
