Thank you so much sir, these pictures are just what we needed.
I have finished reverse engineering the model in LDD and the model has approximately 579 pieces not including the cloths (I say approximately because I am unsure about what one piece is). I will see if I can find a way to make the file public.
@randomdude, These are what I believe they are
Anyone know what goes where I placed the green piece, it appears to be round like the piece subbing for it but black. (update: piece is confirmed to be a 1m dark gray beam, so the exact piece shown but dark gray instead of green)
Note that the new torso piece isn't in LDD, so it is absent.
Update: I figured out a way to post the file, and it will be public once it is approved.
