    This is my 3rd Civic arm mod and my 2nd Rumble arm mod. This one sprung out of the idea that I wanted to keep the pile divers, add only hands to the ends, but the catch was that I wanted to add more articulation.

    I had a Cybertron Soundwave that I just took the head from (thanks again djphlipz) and I was gonna sell him but I noticed the arms were pretty skinny. The arms looked skinny enough to fit in where Rumbles pile drivers are stored. So I chopped Rumble's pile drivers in half and glued SW elbow joints to them and I used a junker Classics Megs for the hands. The arms fit perfectly in car mode but sadly the hands must be removed ala G1 style

    Nice work! Aesthetically, I think this is my favourite of the arm-mods... perhaps because it's the most distinctive (keeping the piledrivers at the wrists looks cool). It makes these unmistakably "Rumble" arms. :) 

    Too bad the fists have to be removed... No way to store them inside the piledrivers, eh?

    For some reason the quote function isn't working for me right now so...

    Zmog - are you challenging me to find a way for these suckers to stay together in car mod? If so, I may just take you up on that :thumb 

    PK - Thanks and congrats on becoming part of the RAD staff
