    Hi , OK I'm exploiting the leg swapping idea for this mold lol so I came up with this the other day but now I'm not sure if it works or not so i wanted to share and let me know what you think. This is just a WIP so other stuff needs to be done to the figure like covering the windows, filling the holes maybe swapping the feet etc. doesn't have to be optimus it can be any other character I'm just using the optimus head because I didn't have anything else at the moment Doesn't matter if its good, bad or neutral I love the input you all have. Thank you.

    That looks pretty sick! It's definitely the best set of legs I've seen swapped on this figure. The vehicle mode works extremely well too.

    Is that a straight-up leg swap or did you have to mod anything to make the Perceptor legs fit?

    yeah Just leg swap the ball joint fits quite well. I I did opened up the legs and swapped the thighs that's why you can see the holes in the front but that can be filled also removed the original doors.

    I really like the way these parts go together. With the window cover-ups you mentioned I think it would make a great Cybertronian Trailbreaker. Maybe I'm going hunting for this Optimus after all...

    I might have to borrow this idea.

    And it looks like I've been convinced to keep mine.

    trailbreaker would be pretty cool, but it could also work as a pre dino grimlock maybe, the exhaust stacks kinda bring back the WW grimlock look. I too think I know where one of my extra perceptors will be going. Now if only FoC would show up around here......

    Love the alt mode. The thighs look a little skinny but not too bad. Great overall.

    Cool. The half-track reminds me of Tacker, from the Multiforce, and part of Landcross.
    Go insane and make an FOC Landcross!! do it.

    Weirdly, skinny legs aside, that screams Roadbuster to me.
