    bought this guy back before DOTM came out by a week or so, saw the movie then realized Hasbro jipped me with an inaccurate representation (not Hasbro's fault necessarily) i immediately set to work fixing him, his head has added bulk to his cheek plating and the extra little spike armor that wasnt there originally (i also made his right eye drooping and increased the damage to his head) his shotgun is a movie cliffjumper arm with a general grevious thigh and KO victory leo rifle barrels bound by (if you can believe it) a straw! i then cut off his right fingers and replaced them with Lego monster teeth, shaved the thumb to match, cut the first 3 fingers of the left hand and replaced them with a cut up paperclip and super-glued into the hand so they can bend without disattaching, created lower/upper arm bulk by super-gluing random things onto each-other (random things that match his movie appearance of course) made an entirely new body with exhaust piping, drive trains and everything! i cut the tires off his tank/fusion cannon, put a peg in each, then drilled a tiny hole in each ankle for them to fit in, a used some more spare parts and super-glued them to a Lego 1x1 brick to fit into the 5MM peg in each calf, and the best part? every bit of new armor is completely 100% applied by friction and can detach so he can transform, he's still a WIP (if you can believe it lol) he still needs the leg configuration like the movie, the correct kneecap armor, and rust detailing where i took a soldering iron to him

    enjoy and thanks for looking!
