This is a pair of giant sized posable hands meant for any of your large, combiner or city-former scaled projects! These hands are extremely posable, with each digit segmented into 3 joints and capable of creating almost every conceivable pose!

The wrist is a ball joint socket, and it works with any 10 mm diameter ball joint. This includes LEGO® Bionicle ball joints. You can also get a compatible wrist adaptor from Shapeways here.

The hands each measure 68 mm from wrist to fingertip, and 40 mm across the knuckles.

This model is successfully tested in White Strong Flexible.

@fakebusker83 Yeah it is pretty bad. Glad to hear you are interested in fixing that though. Will be looking forward to what you have in stored. Thanks a lot.

@NickSandwich After watching a few reviews, I see what you're referring to. Yikes I didn't know it's that bad. Even MP Starscream has better hands than that. I'll see what I can do...

@fakebusker83 They aren't "fully" articulated I guess you could say. Each finger has a hinge joint at the start of the hand but there are no other joints in any of the fingers besides that one. The biggest improvement would be for the fingers to be as articulated as the Enormous Extremities hands along with the thumb. And that alone would make the figure more pose-able.

@NickSandwich I see...Then my question is this. Are there any aspects to Metroplex's hands that can be improved with a replacement? I'd thought those stock hands are already fully articulated and pretty sturdy. Besides the wrist swivel, of course.

@fakebusker83 I have disassembled both arms and the hands are held in by simple swivel joints. Which appear to be about 10 to 11 mm in diameter.

@NickSandwich This is an interesting question and I honestly can't answer you at this point, because I don't own the mold at all. Have you tried disassembling the figure to see how those hands attach?

By any chance would you be able to use these ball joints in the Generations Titan class Metroplex an these hands?

Can you try and make some feet because I want to make a classics bruticus and I will sure to give you credit for the hands and feet

You know, I'm still thinking about making custom lego hands that can be used for bionicle, not like yours exactly, mine are a bit more natural, but still, nice work :)
