    I followed these guides:

    Shortened the arms: rumble619s guide

    Mistransformed the legs: Torques guide

    Then I switched the "feet" around by swapping them from one side to the other below the knees and came up with my take on Wheelie: Final Edition.

    I also cut the "nub" off of his slingshot...

    This looks really good. The normal feet look like clown shoes when all the mods (And by all, I mean 1 & a 1/2) have be executed.

    If you could add waist articulation, that would improve things a million fold. Then you wouldn't have to swap the legs when you transform him. Just use it normal. Good job :)

    It does have waist articulation. That's why he was able to swap the legs and still have it be transformable.

    That looks really good! When/if I get this Wheelie, I may have to copy this!

    There is a waist swivel, but by just rotating it you would end up with backwards knees and screws front facing.

    Nice job though the feet just being the back bumpers seems strange to me.

    Ah sweet. I didn't know. I don't have Jazz, so I just assumed he suffered from locked waist syndrome like so many recent figures have.

    I had posted this leg mod the other day before anyone posted anything in the feedback thread, but no one seemed interested in it. :eek:  Im glad more people are seeing this, since I had tried the other way first, but didnt like it. Did you knock out the pin to switch it? I had left the red part backwards cause I dont know how to do that. If anyone wants any other size comparisons, here you go. http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...n-not-so-exclusive-wheelie-6.html#post8357787

    Do you have any trouble transforming him with these mods?
