    I have an idea of how to make G1 Wheelie cool. Thing is, I don't have a spare G1 Wheelie. Anybody want to donate one for the cause?

    Does this involve a hammer or torch?

    It involves taking Wheelie and alot of ball joints and gundam parts. I seriously want to make him cool. It'd just be alot of joint replacement. He'll still be Wheelie, just more articulated. If possible, I may beef him up a bit too.

    Good idea, if you could give him actual hands he'd be great.

    Too bad you can't have mine. :D

    I'd move the head up where it's supposed to be, to where the car body breaks in two. After that, you'll need to move the shoulder joints up. Might want to try to do something about his ape arms, too. Might have to mount his shoulders on a swing arm, to keep the arms in the proper place in alt mode, but get the hands up above the knees in bot mode.

    found it on one of the japanese image boards. It's scratch-built, apparently.

    They went to all that trouble and didn't include hands. What a shame.

    Because then it would be a Wheelie homage, not an improved G1 Wheelie....

    This thread's title is a contradiction to itself. I do have a cool thing to make Wheelie much better however:

    1. Remove stickers from Wheelie.
    2. Pour paint thinner into a pail.
    3. Allow Wheelie to soak for an hour or so.
    4. Remove Wheelie and set on hard surface like a driveway.
    5. Hold a lit match about 1/2 of an inch from Wheelie.

    Congratulations!! You now have the perfect custom Wheelie!
