    Been thinking about this for weeks, but never really got around to it until today. The slot in the top of Mirage's scoop is almost the right size to hold the rectangle peg of his gun. You can't shave the peg down, because you need it to store the gun in the alt mode. So I took a knife and cut away minescule portions of the slot on the top until it fit. Now I can stow his gun in the robot mode!

    I just leave it on the front of the car where it stays on his stomach and fills out his body a bit more. Nice job though.

    Hmmm... Mine stores like that without any kitbashing needed. I thought that was the official way to store the gun when not in use.

    Mine stores like that too with no mods. In fact, I think it's in the instructions.

    Nice solution here, though.

    Mine stores like that with any changes. And a quick look at the very bottom right of the Instructions shows it being stored on that little part, just pointing down instead of up.

    I know it already has an official crotch storage, but I wish this was also official, it's a good alternative. Maybe you can keep storing it where it was planned and keep a sword on his back since he has ninjalike poseability

    Like people have said, that is the official storage spot for the gun according to the instructions. However, it apparently doesn't fit there on everyone's. I would need to modify mine to get it to fit the gun there, unlike some others in this thread

    Well, cool that it's an easy mod in case someone's doesn't fit properly!

    Am I the only one that prefers the gun in his hand in robot mode rather than still attached to him?

    You know, I've been looking for his gun storage for 7 years. This is the only thread on the internet I've found that showcases it.

    I prefer that, too.
    Like a lot of people, my Mirage didn't need to be modded for the back storage either. I know it's in Fracture's instructions, and I'm almost positive it's in Mirage's, as well.
