I love the military-based poses you can pull off with thing. However, I hate the lower legs being so god damned katoki that kneeling requires the leg in front to be stretching forward. That being said, I also didn't like how high the hip joints were (not how lower the legs were, but rather that the legs should've been shorter, and the joint should've been lower in the thigh). In turn, I replaced the hips, ridding of the center swivel while making them more efficient. I drilled a tiny hole into the purple scope-thing on his head (because it was colorless), and replaced it with a transparent green square I cut away from an older kit with that color on the runner. I painted the piece behind the visor yellow, and drilled a hole into the other orange section (the "diamond") above it, and threw a yellow piece in there, making it seem as if it had a circular light inside. I also remade the neck entirely, with two double balljoints + one sliding balljoint. And, finally, painted all of the darker purple pieces an even darker, flat purple so it was more easily distringuished from the normal purple.
