Some people may have wondered how these little blighters go together, some may not care. This is for the former.
About this creation
I've gotten at least one request for this, and I'm feeling a mite bored today.
Uh-oh, looks like he's stepped on a land mine.
Time to put him back together, eh?
All the needed parts are here.
The thing's not actually that complex.
Now, if you can't figure out how I made the legs or body core, stop reading.
Go watch Blue's Clues or The Wiggles or High Five or whatever little toddlers like you watch.
The dishes go on the side torsos like so, with the stick going in the middle.
The colour of the black part in the middle and the stick doesn't matter; you can't see it, unless you really make a mistake.
The 1x1 stud goes in one helmet like this; speaking of helmets, make sure they're ones with a lot of 'clutch power' on the visors; ideally, you should have to exert a bit of effort to move the visors up and down.
Not 'straining' effort, but rather 'pull the fig off the baseplate trying to get the visor up' effort. A bit of work; any helmet/visor combination that's not really floppy will do.
Stick it on like this, forcing the stick out the side a bit. That's what the 1x1's for.
The stick should now look like this.
Helmets go on, arms follow.
Move the arms so the angle between the cheese slope and the arm is around 90 degrees; the helmet should be horizontal, or very close.
As you can see, the angles aren't perfect. That's fine, though; while I feel a fig is sloppy if the helmet isn't almost perfectly aligned, it doesn't need to be nanometre exact.
Only if you're a little of a perfectionist like me, though.
The rest of you can just put them on any which way.
Gun(s) goes in hand(s), legs can be posed like this if you want.
The studs on a baseplate are helpful for holding them in a pose, but they're pretty sturdy little blighters.
None of the connections will damage parts, except maybe the legs if it's in a pose; the helmet/visors I used on this were not damaged as far as I can tell and the legs are still pretty tight.
Although there's a lot of leeway in parts quality, so your mileage will vary.
Now the guts of my most secretive creation are exposed to the world; if you copy or adapt it, just make sure credit goes to the originator (namely me).
That's all I ask; permission for use is not needed.

Areetsa, you from north or south New Zealand?
No offence meant, but I plan to keep that aspect of my identity under wraps. I suppose you could say I'm paranoid, but you can't be too careful; a first/second name, harmless. A full name, also harmless. A country, mostly harmless unless 'they' have your full name. A specific geographical area, very, very dangerous. It's nothing to do with you yourself, more to do with the fact that on the internet, you can never be sure something has been completely deleted forever.

It was that easy and I didn't know it. Thanks to your explanation, I might just pull this off without reading the instructions again! The Exoforce legs are not part of my collection though...
Well, in theory any combination of plates and clips can be used as legs, with a little experimentation.

thanks for the instructions, now i can make a desert model (i will give you credit)
A 'desert model', meaning desert warfare? Go for it. It's stated up there that as long as credit for the base goes to meself, you can make as many edits and modifications as you want; it'd be interesting to see how far it's possible to take it before changing it so much it's no longer recognizable. But come to think of it... desert warfare.. I could attach cape parts to the shoulders... and maybe use a rubber band if I need more than one... new colours perhaps... mebbe replacement weapons..

Interesting helmet shoulders. I don't think many people have the pieces for the legs, though.
I've had the whole assembly posted for some time, actually. The leg parts are just those exafarce robot legs, though; not very difficult to obtain for anyone willing to shell out for an EF set. Or anyone with SIBLINGS willing to shell out for MULTIPLE EF sets.
