    Incredible!
    I never knew that those figures can have their bulky armour reduced.
    Try to reach inside of me, try to drain my energy
    Let me show you just what I'm made of
    Simple curiosity trying to take a bite of me
    Let me show you just what I'm made of now...

    Yes, it is possible, I am not the first one to do this. Org members 'Hunter Knight' and 'He-Bro' posted such customs before.
    Personally I am very happy with the result. I looked forward to the NA releases and was dissapointed by the bulky armor - totally ruined the figure in my opinion. I am not a toy expert but this was so obvious that I simply decided to fix it.

    I am mostly happy with Flogg as it was bit more difficult than Hydron and IG Skeletor. Flogg's body shape is more Horde Trooper-like so I had to sand the lats. The benefit of that is also that now I can position Flogg's arms close to his body. Also if you look at the original MOTUC Flogg figure, his head seems to be smaller compared to the rest of his body. After the lats are sanded, armor trimmed and the loincloth trimmed as well the head fits the rest of the body really well IMO.
