    the bow and arrow for this guy imo is fuckin lame, but without it he lacked weapons. so i decided to alter the exhausts into wrist guns. i dissassembled the arm and removed the tailpipe. i shaved the pipe down so only the screw peg was left and is now able to freely swivel. i then heated up a flat head screwdriver and melted screw peg flattening it out and making it bigger than the hole. since the screw hole is now gone, i crazy glued the arm pieces back on. i then sharpied the exhaust holes.

    Cool man. I might look into trying something like this. The melee weapons bothered me at first then I just gave in since it's kind of the theme of the line. More hand to hand weapons than lasers and guns :thumb

    Actually I already did a tutorial almost 2 months ago.
    Here it is. Hope it is helpful.

    My only complaint about TF Animated Rodimus Minor is that his car exhaust pipes on his arms face the wrong way.
    This is an easy mod I did to fix that.

    All you need is a tiny screwdriver and a dremel (or something to shave away some plastic with).

    After removing the screws there is still a part glued in so be careful getting that off as not to warp anything.

    Don't screw the screws back in too tight or you won't be able to turn the pipes without possibly stripping the screw plastic.
    You will probably need to tighten the screws for the pipes to keep the pipes firmly in place in alt mode (and loosen for bot mode) but if the backwards pipes bothers you like it did me, this is a nice mod for display.

    I thought of doing this but didn't like the marks that would be left on the upper forearm
