    Hey, I was wondering if there were any easy modifications thats could be made for Voyager Battle Blades Optimus Prime, released in the Hunt For the Decepticons line. I'm particularly looking for anything to better his arms. The swords and hood panels don't offer much posability so I was hoping to change that.

    Can anyone help me out?

    You are better off getting your question answered in the Radicons kitbashing section of the boards. I'm sure the pros there can help you out.

    Yea, in all honesty I wasn't sure where to put this. Can I get a mod or someone to move this?

    The swords and hood pieces can come off. Just be very gentle as not to break the break or snap the plastic...

    Yea, I just did that. Nothing broke, so no worries there. It all seemed to come off real easy, no serious forcing or anything. The only issue though are the big holes in his fore arms.

    If you have an intention on keeping him this way, then might as well fill the holes with putty and painting over the patch job. maybe a nice blue, because another shade of red would be offputting.

    No, I like transforming him into truck mode. I'm sure he can still transform with the blades removed, but the panels I can pop on and off every now and then.

    Coincidentally, the sword on his right arm wobbled for a long time. But I just popped both swords back in the proper place, and now its grip on the peg is tighter than before. Such a great turn out! :D

    Try not to do it too much. Don't wanna risk stressing or eventually breaking the plastic on the peg or in the hole.

    Yea, have to be careful of that. But atleast I got a firmer grip on the blade pegs out of this. Not so bad.

    I just removed the blades, and leave them off. He still has the hood pieces, but he also still transforms.
