We should have a Vamp and full Cyborg Raiden as well... now if I could just find someone to do Crying Wolf all would be well!

step 1 (Posted 1st June 2010)

step 1: drawing the plans.

I have a rough idea of how I'm going to achieve this, what I need to do now is properly draw it out and go and raid B&Q's plumming supplies.
