    you're a genius!! And then how did you modify the wheels on his thigh to sit together without sitting on each other like that??

    those are new parts that he designed, molded, and sells. They make the figure SO much better.

    Hey everyone :D  This is my own Optimus Prime. He has the Leader class shoulder improvement and Wheel mount mod too by Savio Prime. It is a work in progress, I will make a thread about him when it is done.
    Thanks for the parts Savio :D  Oh and everyone should support Savio and buy the parts :)

    Actually the Radicon administrator, Superquad7, is the only one who can post in the Tutorial section.

    I agree those 2 mods are essential! I have done it to all my primes, ROTF, 2x Buster, and Striker Prime.

    Glad this came up! Just did the mod and WOW what a difference!!! And, it doesn't affect anything strength wise or transformation wise.

    Superquad7, PLEASE PUT THIS IN THE TUTORIALS SECTION!

    I just did this to my new Amazon Jetwing Prime. I think it actually makes the transformation EASIER! It's not as hard to line everything up now that the doors have that extra movement in them...

    Its ridiculous how much this improves Leader Prime. I just did this mod on the new ROTF Prime I bought and shit. It looks soooo much better. Really don't understand why Hasbro didn't do this in the first place. Awesome mod, Savio!

    Great mod! I'm clearly not as handy with a dremel as my final result wasn't nearly as clean - but good thing it's on the back! :)
