    While Cybertron Hot Shot and his mold mates are really cool figures, there are a few areas that hinder the figure’s articulation. With just a few modifications, this figure can be greatly enhanced! You’ve made it this far, so continue reading to find out how you can unlock the articulation potential in Hot Shot, Excellion, or [2007 movie] Breakaway!

    There is some cutting involved, so use whatever tool works best for you doing this, whether that is an X-Acto blade or a Dremel.

    For both arms, cut the stops [indicated on ‘A’ and also do this with the armpit stop [no picture of the inside of the arm here]:

    [Note: The spoiler wings and the back plate on this Cybertron Excellion were swapped from orange to red (this only requires screw driving, but does require the extra figure to swap the parts out with.]


    Here is what you end up with:
