    Do what he says, he's right hehehe.

    You know, this Prime wouldn't be to bad if his legs could be shortened for truck mode like some of the other Primes.

    Soundblaster1: Thanks for the help! That was way too easy...

    AlphaPrime: I agree about the legs. He just looks weird in truck mode. I'm thinking of taking him apart and seeing if there's any feasable way to do this...

    Thanks again!

    I have already taken a leg apart and looked it over, my conclusion is that it is possible but would take alot of work, cutting/modding etc etc.

    Someone did a mod to him, I'll have to find it... I think they swapped out the upper thigh from a Classics Starscream figure & got them to fit with the lower legs from the Prime, so that the legs could collapse in on themselves...
    Found it:

    Ebay:
    There's a more concrete solution to the action feature (not to poo-poo Soundblaster1's idea...that's the first thing I did when I got Prime):

    Unscrew him in the ab/torso area. Take out the springs and gears. Put him back together. Now, swivel his upper body to one side, apply superglue or bonder to the exposed triangle. Swivel it the other way, do the same. Swivel it back so it's straight and lined up, and hold him there for a few seconds. Give a couple hours to dry, and you're good to go!!

    The pulling out of the black tab works, but not forever. I had the feature pop back into action about a month later of getting him (and, I don't play with my figures anymore), so I figured this solution out.

    Good luck!
