Okay, REALLY trying not to get distracted.
Last night I was tinkering, as you do, and suddenly I thought – I was able to make the Wolf Riders work with current plastics.. surely it would follow the same could be done for Squig Hoppers?
Using classic Night Goblin plastic torso, and wolf rider legs; a kitbash later with other modern plastics (and some serious sawing work to remove the original metal rider)..
I had a Squig Hopper. (Coincidentally, my first ever)
Really trying hard not to start raiding eBay and more for bits! Haha. This could become a Leader character?
