    So today I picked up my energon sharkticon and thought, if I cut of the backpack I will have an awesome ship! so I tried and it turns out that that the back pack is very hard plastic. I finally got it off and I realized that I still had a fully pose able Sharkticon figure. I'm just saying this because it is an easy thing to do and you get two figures out of one. Also, I'm looking for a possible autobot figure that can do something similar.:)

    I dunno, but I popped off the arm blasters of mine and they are now his guns. The only mod is being careful about popping em off. :)

    I tried that but they're in there tight, so I cut of the fins facing his body.

    I did that with mine a while back. And yes, being careful is the key words here (I used my fingers to pry under it and pop the glue (you'd swear it was cemented in place). lol

    With this minor mod though, you get a LOT more articulation in the arms (the fins kept hitting the backpack). Still debating whether to use this figure for parts/custom work. I have a couple of ideas flowing around this one, just don't know if I'll go through with 'em or not.

    I was just looking at the backpack and realized that it would be a good gun for tidal wave! It's already a boat/spaceship.

    Yeah, I actually popped one off successfully with no damage, but the second I popped off actually broke the tab off. It was nothing a little super glue couldn't fix though :thumb 

    I always found it interesting that half of these figures never came with guns to hold, but they still have the fist holes :lol

    Could you guys post some pics of these mods? I like the E. Sharkticon figure but would love to make it better.
