    The Combiner Wars Brawl is a very versatile figure but let's admit it his posture is aweful, he does not have an abdomen and he is just too short.

    I designed a kit to address these problems and here's the result:

    First off, he gets a much needed height boost (about 10mm)

    Then, look closely, he's got a panel for his abs too! This panel clicks into the groove on the combiner port to prevent his upper body from flipping backward. Unfortunately, doing so he also loses his waist articulation. So your call to keep it or not

    The two ball joints move up and down, I took the inspiration from no other than Breakdown:

    Transformation still possible, although I need to push very hard to reduce the gap.

    Also in the back, I left a hole for a long bolt to secure the front and rear halves of the crotch.

    I bet fore arm upgrade can be something that slots over each arm using its original hands as connection points. Then in tank mode they could somehow tab together into a attachment that pegs into the back of the tank. Was gonna say gas cans bit that's more a Jeep thing.maybe fake doors for like APC or something?

    Also if you do do fore arms can you replicate the hands on the box/comic cover. I'd police to have that fist smash pose.

    Love the idea, but this makes his forearms look even worse and losing waist articulation is pretty huge on this guy.

    The stomach area seems pretty thin for a brute like Brawl. Do you have any solutions for that?
