    Just wondering if his wings can be removed and reversed? I'd much rather have the red side showing in bot mode. Has anyone tried this?

    They can be angled back. I would say they can't be reversed but kitbashers can do wonders so can't isn't in the vocab.

    Don't think it can be removed. The swivel part that connects the wing to the legs at the bottom can't be detached, I believe.

    They can be folded forward around his legs, so that the top part shows.

    you really should just paint the undersides of the wings, but if you just had to make him a partsformer, you could. You have to take the calves apart, and you'll find the wings are held on with a rivet, which needs to be heated up to be removed. You can actually see the rivet on the inside half of the thrusters before you do anything, but you can reach it a LOT easier, with much less risk of melting the calf if you take the leg apart first. The legs are held together with a pair of screws and one pin (the foot) knock the pin out with a hammer and nail, and unscrew the screws.


    I'm requesting that this thread be moved to the appropriate forum, Customs/Kitbashes, with a re-direct left here for you to find it more easily.
