It's a blue lego peg, so carefully cut apart the toes leaving the pieces u see in the pics... grab a blue lego peg + 2x1cm with peghole lego technics block + the single smallest 2x1stud glue it in and will required super little work

(now that u mention the peg lets me swap feet/toes, so the G1 can b optional extra heavy weight toes... hehe)

Looks neat. I'm wondering though, what articulated hands did you use for him?

UPDATE4:
Big changes, finally got back on this one & was going on a roll 2day!!
Made a tilting balljoint socket for the new head + cover that folds the gap
The head btw is store between the legs, cuz it a minor partsformer I mostly focus on a clean truck + robot, beside G1 PM had many loose parts..
this way the combined head head also b swapped with ease!
Hollowed out the smokestacks which make many configurations of weapons
and best thing last i found the perfect Lego part for the truck which nicely pegged in place also on the arms, I think a folding style is 2 much hassle
All the use of Lego part will make it very easy 2 fit into the trailer later on...
Keep in mind I will give the Optimus it's G1 trailer (modded) + PM Trailer etc
(i don't have a spare/junker or cheap God bomber otherwise I would use it)

UPDATE4B:
Well turn out I didn't had 2 mod the previous modded trailer hehe saves me precious time
So only modded the weapons 2 fit on the trailer and added another set of G1 rubber trailer wheel (*sigh* 3trailers sacrificed already!)
The head will prolly b replaced by a custom, since the big head make the body look less big
Btw I might add more length 2 the legs... really want a godbomber any1?

Dude have you added any articulation to the trailer (armour)? because i'm sure as hell my PMOP doesnt have that range of movement lol!

It's so nice though, might have to do this type of mod to my classics UM.......

Yes I did everywhere I could:
-waist swivel -full range biceps -articulated hands+wrist -hips -knees
actually now I think of it only thing I didn't do where feet/toes

UPDATE5:
OK today I completely revised the neck of HI-Q, with double balljoints...
Cut of the former arms (3rd party headmaster) then added balljoint shoulders..
and finally gave him a biceps and new forearms (donated from several minicons)
I also shaved Optimus here and there, fixed the broken neck (after he fell down)
even made a cover for the head which covers up in both (i mean all 3) modes
EXTRA: my previous trailer version will also get a major overhaul!


I STILL NEED A CHEAP/AFFORDABLE GODBOMBER, pls PM... thnx!
