    ok, i started modding this figure after seeing all the crazy stuff Savio-Prime was doing and sharing with all of us. i noticed a few people were curious about is a fender relocation could be done to look more like how he does in the movie(ill post a pic to show that) so here are a few pics i took when working on this mod, hope it helps everyone out if they wanna try it.

    the pics are before i cut and added the extra fender piece, but it all works out the same way even after doing that.

    Does the piece rotate without the wire needing to bend, or do you have to bend the wire each time you bend it up?

    it only needs to bend SLIGHTLY. the wires i used were the kinds that use to come in transformers packaging. they seem to be pretty sturdy. i have used these for tails on Legends Ravages and have transformed this figure back and forth quite a few times now with no problems at all

    ya, im trying to find an alternative, but there is almost no space for anything else under there. the way i have it he can still transform back. i suppose a stronger support could be used if transformation wasnt an issue tho. i keep my stuff displayed in robot mode so wouldnt be too big of a deal
