    Been on a roll this week! So I wish I could give credit to whoever first did this foot mod on Cybertron Shortround...but I totally can't remember.
    Anyway, the lobster claws were removed, and rebuilt and larger feet. Fists were then scratchbuilt, small enough to fit into cavity in the feet. The head was rebuilt with some styrene, and the gun was given a new handle. The key activated mechanism was removed as well, and the missles now simply flip forward.

    Wow, that's got to be my favourite take on this idea yet.

    I'm especially curious how you attached those heel spurs... I did a similar mod on my Storm Surge, but the balance is terrible, and I'd love to know how you integrated those heels!

    Its part of the smaller, sliding grey peice of the claw. I simply cut it and glued it to the leg. It actually sits in almost the exact same spot as it originally did in vehicle mode.

    Lol...if it makes you feel any better, I've had Stormsurge in my pile of things-to-get-to-at-some-point for like 6 months. I can't tell you how many times I've said the exact same thing.

    Dig it.

    Great mods.

    Good painting (not a fan of the ultra glossy blue, but it's just a personal taste thing).

    Top notch work!

    I had planed on doing something like this as well but I hadn't decided how to remove the claws...

    Great work man! You have certainly given me an Idea of how to proceed now.

    It's kinda funny... I think all anyone has seen when we find Storm Surge on a shelf is: " I can turn that into Seaspray"

    lol
