    Modifying is'nt normaly my thing since I hav'nt had much practice for it, but Landmine was an exception

    Used a foot from one of those kids connection (walmart) robots for the base , a cannon from another kids connection set , a missle rack from a Neo Shifter and 4 Joe missles.

    Glued a lego connector in the back of the cannon for the missle rack to go on

    The rack has 4 connection nubs that after a little shaving, makes good pegs for the missles

    The foot almost clicks in perfectly in the back, a piece of it clicks underneath the rear bumper lights , snug fit. Also extended his machine gun

    Used a Gundam gun for his robot mode, thought it was suitable since the gun actually has mines on it .

    Now off to fix & smooth some of that paint up and get some Joe decals

    So What is he now? *L* I like it, btw. Like the detailing. Where does the missle rack go in 'bot mode? Can he still sport it in some way? or is it just like a turret for him to man?

    There's a hole on the bottom of the rack base for a handle if needed, but I was thinking of allowing it to peg on that flipping hood panel on his back, so it can swivel up over his head & shoulders

    Also stuck some rockets on the side of his alt mode that I need to paint

    Great idea going with the Lego for a connector. Great paint job, as well.
