    Hmm...I don't even know whether this can be qualified as a mod as I did very minimal mod like putting on some hands, that's all and some different arrangement for the Gestalt mode. So....here goes.

    The hands I used were Kotobukiya M.S.G (Modelling Suppot Goods) Hand Unit A 1/144 scale.

    Wow, these look nice. You plan on doing the same with Bruticus and Devastator? Also, a link to where you can normally get these hands?

    Edit: Googled them. Damn, they are pricey.

    my only complaint is having the "extra" legs sticking straight up off the shoulders. Not that that'd be hard to "fix". :)  I'd just like to SEE this set somewhere... (or friggin' Inferno for that matter!)

    I love this set and the alt transformation. I am hoping to find one of these, but they are quite expensive.

    I want to try this. Gives me more incentive to buy these sets.

    Actually the set has 2 sets of ball joints that you can customise on the hands. The 1st set is the smaller balljoint that theother slightly bigger. What I did with this Superion was I ignored the balljoint and superglued the hands with unused runners from Gundam kits. And it fits like a glove.

    I was shooting for the X configuration kinda like extended laser arms on Superion for some added firepower.

    Puns.

    Anyway, I'd like to see this added to the tutorials section. There are a lot of people here, even non-kitbashers, that would love to try this.

    You could go for this configuration if you like. :)  Then TCracker's version could work as a 'battle mode' configuration.

    I'm wondering if I could just use Alt hands or maybe those from an RID Prime or Magnus.

    Ki1983ng! :D  Seriously credit should go to you as you inspired me to look at my Superion in a different configuration. :thumb 

    That could work meaning, I am leaning more on Alt hands, I have RID Prime and Magnus with me and belive me, I did try on Superion, but to does not look right somehow (IMHO) and it is a little too big to be proportionate to the arm (not that Superion is correctly in proportion to begin with).

    These transformations look so much better. Although I still can't get over the pink plane.

    Now, what hands are those? same ones or different?

    Wow... nice mod/alternate transformation. It's similar to my old Superion variation in the use of the legs, but the arms are something new!

    I have the first set, but these guys are calling out to me too. I don't mind those extra legs sticking up... they seem like flight verniers or something. Decorative cool looking fin things. :) 

    Wow... ANOTHER variation for the arms. To think I used to consider these arms to be most useless Energon combiner limbs of them all. This makes THREE cool-looking configurations, and I think I like these better than mine. :)
