    Generation Wheeljack

    Here is a small foot mod on Wheeljack to make him more G1-ish and also not to make him as chubby too. I also extended his legs a little bit.

    looks like the front wheel cover was cut and attached to the front bumper. Leg extension probably dremmeled out to allow it to slide down further.

    Looks really cool. Definitely more of a G1 feel to it. Some piece placed under the car bonnet over the knee caps I think would help to cover the leg extension gap.

    I did this mod too with track's longer leg sliders and found wheeljack to be wobbly without track's knee pads, so I changed him back.

    Can you swap out Track's thighs so he's not so short? I wanted to do this, but was hesitant before i took anything apart

    You can but wheeljack doesn't have the kneepad-thing that goes in front of the thigh like tracks does. The mod makes wheeljack wobbly if you're fiddling with him, but its not hard for him to stay in a pose if you want to display him.

    They have the same thighs. It's the shin slider that's changed. The legs don't slide up as far, so that Wheeljack doesn't have ugly knees.

    ^Thanks man, good to know. I think I'll just leave them as they are. Wheeljack will just have to be short

    I do like the mod, but not the extension.

    Just fill the area behind the knee with some putty and let it harden then the leg won't wobble.

    Excellent work! You improved the legs by a mile with those cuts. Just got my Wheeljack and that fender mod is a MUST, along with leg/waist height mods.

    Keep up the great work and thanks for inspiring my WJ custom (which I have yet to start).

    The foot mod is cool as all hell, but the exposed holes below the knee are pretty bleh.

    I will never understand why some hate the exposed knee holes, yet love the short, stumpy marshmallow "Pat Lee" styled look.

    The openings in the knee aren't as bad as some seem to get bent over. I've seen other TF toys with bigger issues, but to each his own.

    I went ahead and extended the legs on mine too, really easy to do. Thanks for the idea.
