    I don't know about you guys but I hate the way they did his forarms.Everytime I tried to pose him the nosecones would slide back down over his hands.Plus I just never liked the way it looked so this morning I got bored and decided to do something about it.

    I heated up the pins that hold the nosecones to his forearms then gently pulled them off.I then used to smaller pins as pegs to hold the parts to his back.The smaller pins fit right under the wheels on his forearms in shuttle mode.

    To transform him all you gotta do is pop the nosecones back into his forearms and have at it.This mod does not hinder any transforming.The only drawback is that it leaves holes in his forearms but I don't mind it.I think the way he looks more than makes up for it.
    Hope you enjoy!!!!

    I shall have to try this with one of my astrotrains, not because i don't like the way they look but the pin interferes with the balljoint on the right arm so it constantly falls off

    Or you could bend his arms, when you do that the cockpit stays into place.
    I'm no fan of partsformers, but that's a nice modification.
