    Ok. I am VERY Proud of this custom figure. I think I am the first (Turns out I'm not :(  ) to modify the legs to collapse in truck mode like in the MP figure. Now his truck mode looks much better. Enjoy.



    Here's what I used. Cut up two sets of Deluxe Optimus Prime's legs, Acid Storm Legs, crazy glue, and Loctite Epoxy Putty. I was going to try Mighty Putty but could find any.

    Thanks!

    No need. If you pull the trigger all the way back, it locks it in place.

    That looks a GODZILLION times better with the legs retracted!! Very nicely done! I was gonna make a mod like this to mine too & I been wrackin my brain-pan tryin to come up with one that works. Would you be so kind as to share what you did with us all my good Sir??
    I'm still toyin with idea of moddin' his front wheels so they dont stick out so far in Truck mode...thats gonna be a tuffy! Already resculpted the noggin to look more "G-1ish" & have started to mod new hands that will eventually fold back into his forearms too!

    I may have to copy this if you don't mind :)

    Awe, man. I'm not the first? :(  Oh well. :)  Yes it does. I'm just glad that I was able to do something like this. I don't normally do mods. So I am very proud of this. Can you post yours?

    Yup. I used two sets of Prime legs and an Acid Storm.

    Very cool. I don't know if I should attempt this mod, but I can deal with my Optimus Prime legs not collapsing.

    Amazing, just what this figure needed! There are still a few things I would personally want to improve on the figure (like a better face and the front side of the alt mode), but you've already made it 100X's better.

    IIRC, it was Cheebs who first reworked this figure when it first came out including telescoping legs.

    That fact certainly doesn't take away from the coolness of your work though :thumb

    Why couldn't hasbro had done this to start with...

    Btw, why did you need two sets of primes legs? From what I can tell you only used one set :S.

    EDIT:

    Nevermind I see why you need two sets of feet now, one to use as the foot support and another for the wheel pannel.
