Something that was already part of the design:) I jsut cut down a power key, shaved it so it would be looser in the housing so the spring already on the mechanism could push it back, then built a backplate out of styrene to hold it in place. You push the button forward it triggers, then the spring that was already there pops the button back.
And thanks for the comments on the paint, much of the orange was done useing Krylon Fusion for all the orange, then I hand painted all the detail work, like the silver on his arms and the blue on the eyes. As well as some other stuff for the jeep mode that you can't see in these pics. Also gave him a little bit of a brown paint wash on the wheels and runner to give the jeep/dune buggy mode some more character.
