    Thanks guys, It actually didn't take as long as I thought it would. I figured it would have taken longer honestly. I still have some items to finish up as far as armor goes but it is pretty dam close and almost time to work on the skin, feet and hands and it will be completed.

    Here is an update of the Wrist Blade with it being automated.
    With the help of Elkman (Todd) He gave me some pointers and shot me in the perfect direction of what I needed to do to get this working properly.
    Thanks Elkman.

    I like the stack of tortillas on the side. Nice touch. I'll have to try that the next time I build a wristblade mechanism.

    Seriously, though, that's good work.

    FASTBURST - you should make a tutorial on the Blades.

    I heard that from a few people already. I may do it, I will discuss with ElkMan first to see how he feels about it since he was the one who actually advised me on how to go about it. I must first give respect to those who did it first.

    Doesn't bother me at all. It's not like I'm maintaining proprietary information here.

    Actually, I should probably update my original thread where I described how to build a wristblade mechanism from a CD-ROM drive. I've switched to using a Tamiya gearbox connected to a hub-mounted gear that drives against a gear rack. It ends up being a sturdier mechanism that's easier to build.

    Come to think of it, I may have given just the same tutorial that FastBurst was going to give.

    Well there you have it folks straight from the man himself! I will see about making an official Huntorial and post it as Todd gave you the basic breakdown, I will see what I can do about diagrams or drawings or what not.

    Well here is an update on how the feet and hands turned out so far, I still need to seal them. The overall effect came out nicely I think and was what I was looking for. After adding textures to the feet, they actually turned out really good and gave a very bumpy effect.
