    Hi.


    Can any of the Earth mode Optimus Prime figures from the Animated line hold Laserbeak (when in guitar mode) and look like he's playing it, the way he does in Human Error part 2?

    You can kinda fake it like his mid-strum by plugging the bottom of his fist into the lowest peg on the guitar.

    Both voyager and deluxe.

    True, but the hole is a bit too big for the peg, and that way you can't really make him hold the guitar in both hands..or am I doing something wrong?

    The hole should fit perfectly. Standard 5mm size. And no, you can't get him to hold it in both hands, that's why I said you can kinda fake it.

    With the Wingblade Prime you might be able to make it a bit more convincing. Since the fingers on the arm attachments open so that he can hold Magnus' hammer.

    If Wingblade can do that, I wonder if you could also pose him so that he's holding the guitar over his head in mid-air? (With a sturdy enough display stand, I guess.)
