    Hi I might be doing a series of mods, since I'm testing a few options...
    like: Blitzwing / Brawl (probably the latter)

    But anyways ... I turned the legs around while fiddling by accident...
    then looked at it a few time and thought... HEY this looks better then the normal configuration right? So here's how I did it!

    1. Cut part/location [A] to resemble [C]
    2. Cut part/location to resemble [D]

    The knees now bend both ways and doesn't interfere with Alt-mode, since the groin has to go up reversed :) 

    Be careful taking the legs apart... the second one broke while being careful
    No clue why they also used glue where the screws would've be sufficient!
    (O well the part that broke gets cut haha so WIN WIN there ;) )

    Interesting, that gimp arm cannon needs moving onto his shoulder with a proper arm used to replace it though.

    I did this too... a definite improvement, though I prefer to also swap the feet around so the broader foot is on the front instead of the back. That skinny toe always looked a little weird in front to me.

    yeah I agree... If I ever get a second G2 megs I'll try :) 
    Like it said I don't know if a arm mount cannon helps me....
    since the possibility is bigger that it will form the leg of my Bruticus :p 


    luckily I hated the default MEGA feet and this way is WIN WIN for me ;)  hehe

    I like this mold and ive been tempted to get the repaint version but only if theres a solution on his no arm, cant the arm be rotated so the gun thing either sits to the side or underneath, and then mod it to resemble a cannon and stick a fist on the end (personally id go for his pre-earth idw underarm small cannon)
    Also this mold screams impactor, why haven't botcon or Tfcc jumped on this (replace the arm gimmick for a harpoon - done)

    this would be an excellent shapeways product...
    which horizontally flips the right arm, but you would need 2 of these figures
    so that you have that shoulder to elbow connector...
    (it to could be shapeway'ed I guess)
    anyways after that make a peghole in the nem right arm
    and maybe even shapeway a decent cannon!!!!

    DAMNZ I'M SO EXCITED... I might try this...
    I need a micrometer measuring device first though :( 
    then I can write do the calculations need to replicate it :p
