    Just don't like the way the dino tail's hanging off the back of Slug's in robot mode so I took out my knife and my usual paperclip trick to fix it up.

    The end result is much more pleasuring to me. The torso looks much more bulked up from all angles and the back is much less messier.

    The front leg mod also improve the dino mode's posability. As the front legs can now bend backward to make running poses.

    Also, I don't know if other treads have mentioned about an alternative weapons storage method of storing the swords in the belly area. So I attached 2 pics (the last ones) to show how it can be done. It's pretty secure and obscure.

    You would think replacing the hinge with a ball joint would accomplish the same effect, with no parts forming! Looks good otherwise!

    You wouldn't even need a balljoint, you could just rotate it up on the paper clip hole he made in Slug's butt. Probably be better to use an actual pin for that, they can be clipped with heavy duty wire cutters.

    That's right. I just have to rotate the tail 180 degree to avoid parts-forming, but I still didn't like how the tail gets in the way of the 2 Dino front legs when I twist the waist. I thought it's best to attach the tail to the upper torso to avoid the obstruction. I can now rotate the waist 360 degree freely.

    Yes! Thx a lot. I guess I'll do that too, the Dinobots need some retool. Definitely.
