    So a couple days ago i saw a post by Torque.He posted his Wheelie that he had mis-transformed to be smaller.I really liked the way he looked but to me it made his arms look to long.So I went and shortened them a little and now I have to admit that I really do love this figure!!!!!!!


    I want to thank Torque for the inspiration to try this!!!!!

    Awwwww his adorable chibiness is charming! Great arm-mod.

    I've reconciled myself to thinking of this as "All grown up" Wheelie, with the Legends version being his kid self.....still this is awfully tempting...

    This looks really cool. The name of the user who first came up with this is named Torque.

    Well my plan would be to just take Wheelies head, repaint a BB body, and stick the Wheelie Head as a replacement and walah!

    ...cause repairing an entire figure is easier than trimming 1/2" from his forearms?

    I LOL'd.

    A) So there is cutting involved here, right? Want to make sure I'm not missing something obvious before I warm up the dremel (and go find a Wheelie).

    B) I thought that was so a mod, Torque.

    This makes Wheelie even better. Great job to the both of you. By the way Rumble 619 I noticed you did a door mod to your Bumblebee? Could you tell me how exactly you did it? Anyway great job!!
