    Well I already have a Classics Roddy so I thought Hmmmm fansproject is not getting my money for the trailer and stuff...
    So this on is finished but I am gonna try and see if I can make him into Rodimus Prime, so if I have something to show I'll make a WIP ;) 

    MODS:
    -like with my VW Corrado Reshell I also gave this one my articulation unlimitation treatment :D 
    -obviously I also swapped the wings and the backplate from orange to red

    Enjoy... :) 

    UPDATE:
    added TUT per request!
    (wingswaps etc. not included that only requires screwdriving :D )
    -for both arms grind/dremel/cut the stop thingy's located on A and (I have no picture of the inside of the arm) also do this with the armpit stoppy
    -for both side of the waist erea try to match B & C by saw/dremel/cutting


    UPDATE2:
    New head and new pics! :D

    I love Hot Shot and the entire mold. Tutorial. The articulation is the one fault i have with the toy.

    :thumb  great custom. Excellion should have been Rodimus.

    It's very nice, but why is it listed under heavy/scratch? It's not a flatout repaint, to be sure, but it's not exactly a heavy mod, right?

    thnx..

    well first of all no paints have been harmed :D  LOL...
    this was a ... whatever kind of repaint as how it was sold :)  Pretty yes?

    2 there has been some serious modding on the balljoint to let it slide in the location where previously only a swivel neck/head was, instead of simply gluing and the waist + arms/should mod to allows massive extra articulation freedom

    So repaint? No.... Minor? Maybe, but I personally think not since replicating these exact mods will take about 1-2hrs
    that's long? No, but it's no simple headswap either that I can tell ya ;)
