    1. I opened and unscrewed my G1 Blaster's light leg part.

    2. I marked and fit the speaker on it.

    3. I cut the marked part and smoothed the hole on the right leg, using my rotary tools.

    If you used the other leg to house a cheap, micro-sd card-reading mp3 player...

    Hey Dja- Have you tested this for long? I did something similar (Never posted it) using the exact same speaker except I tore the speaker apart and installed everything inside the leg. I found when it was done it was fairly quiet and I needed to play the volume of the speaker nearly all the way up. After about an hour of listening to it the speaker blew and started sounding really "crackly". I replaced the speaker with one from Radio shack and it works again but i kinda lost interest in it after that. I can post pics if you want- it wasnt easy to mount everythign in the leg with nothing sticking out but the USB jack.

    Well Heres a few pics- After I installed the new speaker, I basically never installed it back to Blaster.... so its just a loose leg on my bench. LoL but it still works.

    I like yours because its a clean easy way to do it. I have a tendency to overthink what needs to be done and I wind up doing much more work than I need to.

    I wouldnt recommend anyone without experience with electronics to do this one. . I had to modify the USB to fit where I wanted it and I had to make a custom switch so I could install it in the location of the blank Earphone hole.. Everything is crammed inside and it works but like i said I was listening to it too loud and blew the speaker so I had to replace it.. Anyhow pics here.[​IMG]

    i would hide all the electronics in the body, then just wire up the speakers to both legs...
    if i find a cheap G1 Blaster will do that :)  who know if will give Titan Combiner Wars Blaster the treatment first
    (i'd glady sacrifice the base mode, cuz it's rubbish and not fitting the character at all)

    i would love to be able to fully integrate everything within blaster and have it be enclosed but I don't have such skills! I really do like the way that you did your version as it is elegant and seems to be easy to implement!
