    I noticed this last night. Alot of kitbashes have shown up recently with people drilling holes in their Classics Optimus Prime figures to have a place for the smokestacks/machine gun weapon.

    I realized that, in robot mode, if you put the red windsail back in the hole in his back, pointed down, there are two holes on its underside where you can place the smokestacks.

    I didn't know if many had realized this, since I hadn't seen a thread, and I felt a little bad people had kitbashed and customized so many innocent Primes as of late to do this, when it was all right there in the first place.

    I'll get a pic up as soon as I fix my digicam, but suffice it to say, it looks pretty awesome, IMO.

    Hell I don't know, I've never had to use the instructions. I just saw alot of kitbashes happening, and saw a way to get the same result without the use of a drillbit.

    Lesson learned: Before taking a drill to a toy, read the manual

    Yep, it's his Shoulder Blaster mode or somesuch. You can flip the smokestacks down to be shoulder cannons when you mount them like that. :D

    I noted that too when I first did it. Now, if only there was something to do about all that accursed arm kibble, he'd be the picture of perfection...

    I've mentioned it before, but another thing you can do: aim the stacks the other way on the spoiler and it kinda looks like a rocketpack. Open the spoiler and take the cannon out first and it gives him three boosters instead of two. I'd post a picture but I have to get out the door. Bah Humbug....
