    I wanted my Henkei Optimus to have smokestacks and I didn't like the short stacks on my 25th year Optimus Prime.I pulled off the short stacks and cut off the large round part and then popped them in the shoulder screw holes on Henkei Optimus. I think it looks pretty good. Please tell me what you think.

    He looks pretty darned slick with the stacks in robot mode... But, when it's transformed aren't the stacks in the wrong position? They should be on the outside of the arm, no?
    EDIT: I just thought about it, and I realized that it wouldn't be able to Transform! I'm pretty sure that the mold wouldn't be able to do the smokestacks in the proper position without partsforming!

    Thanks everyone for the nice comments, oh I also should have mentioned that you have to pull them off when you transform him.
