    This is my Universe Inferno Ladder mod. I found a plastic fire truck and took its ladder. I glued magnets into the inferno toy and glued a piece of steel to the ladder. The ladder can be used in both robot and truck mode. The ladder is placed so that it doesn't interfere with transforming it. I'm thinking of making a second one and putting it on ebay. I'd really appreciate some feedback, if you like it or would like to buy it.

    !!!

    I have a ladder left over from a Lego fire truck. This is making my list.

    Awesome job. I only wish you could fit the gun in as well.

    Sounds like someone's working on something Prime.

    Awesome job on the mod Misfit. Cant wait to actually HAVE an Inferno to look at first hand.

    You accidentally pressed enter twice while entering your ATT Code.

    The ladder looks neat, and there's still a little gun on there right?
    Cool.

    I like it but I don't see why everyone seems hell bent on modding this one. He's a pump truck AKA a water truck, they come with hoses etc no ladders. Great mod still

    I think people just want to pay further homage to the original toy, which is why you see the ladder. They might not know (or care) that it's a pump truck and feel that the mold is missing something.

    I'd love to know what truck you found with the ladder.

    I've been trolling around the car aisles for a few weeks, but I haven't found a decent scaled ladder. :-(

    I found the fire truck with the ladder at walmart. It was in the clearance section, in a very cheap looking package containing: 2 firetrucks, a police car, emergency helicopter, and an ambulance. There was also an assortment of cones, stoplights and small figures. Its regular price was 20 dollars and its sale price is 13 dollars. The outside of the box was yellow. I'm sorry I can't find a picture for you and it isn't on Walmart.com.

    You can get the ladder at walmart for about 13.50. I spent 30.00 getting Inferno. I spent 5.00 on the magnets and glue, not to mention 3 hours of labor. I'd have to sell the toy for at least 50.00 to break even. However if you just want to know where to get the ladder and the magnets I could give you that information.

    Ditto, but I believe our end result is different... (but I don't want to parts-form mine!)

    This makes me want to get the figure. I don't get why Hasbro didn't give him a ladder.
