    Like most of you I got a little chrome matrix with the battle in space two pack. It really bothered me that Hot Rod couldn't hold the matrix, so I thought about cutting a slot into his hands however it would look really odd if he wasn't holding it and would only allow him to hold it in one direction.

    Then I came across a much easier way a paperclip, super easy I spent a grand total of three minutes to do it. I'm really happy with the results and I feel it has improved my display so I thought I would share:)

    P.S. I need to thank Chibbywave for painting it for me.

    Cool! You could always cut out parts from the bottom of the Matrix to make clearance for the fists to hold the real handles as well.

    so I walked into Misfits room this morning and he was all excited and asked if I saw anything new? So I pointed out his wreck-gar pose, he says "so I was busy do you see anything else?" and I pointed out the hot rod mod that "chansformers" came up with. He said "So I was REALLY busy do you see anything else?" That's when I found the matrix in the hands of the Protector Hot Rod. It just blended so nicely I thought it had always been like that! Great job Misfit!;)

    Nice. Paperclips are very useful, yes sir. Know what that Matrix was originally made for?

    I tried to find someone that painted their BIS Matrix. Is there anyway to find out what colors and type of paint used on this? I would like to paint mine up in the same way.

    Since seeing this This is how I've used my matrix. A long enough twisty tie can even be a neck chain.

    I can't believe this slipped my notice for over a month. This simple trick is fantastic!

    Also, that Matrix is painted so beautifully.
