    Hey everyone, I got the itch to do some bashing, although I lack most of the tools to do so nowadays...however, looking through the older threads I came up on the thread started by Peaugh with contributions from others on modding the hip kibble on the masterpiece seeker mold, so I decided to try my own idea.

    I liked how it looked with the kibble on the back, so I removed the hip kibble, split it along one of the seam lines, then allowed placed the section onto the wing assembly. I made it so that it rotates the whole section around, and then allows the lower section to rotate.

    Thanks for taking a look.

    I really like it. Very smart way to put the extra part to the back. Now the robot mode looks much better! excellent job!

    Thanks, I just thought of the last pics configuration as I played around with it. Also transformation isnt hindered in anyway, but its important that the small nubs that were on the hands are taken off.

    You're braver than me.

    Removing pins to swap air intakes is one thing, but no way i'm cutting up my MP Thundercracker.

    First of all, great work!!

    I've done the leg mod that put the kibble on the legs (see my avatar), but I like what you've done. Does it improve the horrible posebility inherent in the stock toy? The mod I and others have done mean the toy has incredible range of leg movement with excellent balance, and I am very curious how your mod affects this.

    Oh shit... Looks nice, though I prefer the mod where you add those to his legs, this is excellent as well.

    Nice work! I just ordered this guy for my birthday and I'm still undecided on which option I will choose to fix the hip kibble. It's nice to have more choices, thanks for the contribution!

    This is fantastic! Hidden away on the back looks so much better, then with the the parts flayed out in an almost star pattern looks kinda cool too! And yeah that last pic is pure awesome! looks like a super mode for Screamer! Great job!

    Thanks everyone! The leg articulation is greatly increased side to side, as I had to remove the ball joints. The stem of the joints always got in the way of full extension. The movement to the back doesn't affect the balance as far as I can see, It hasn't become overly back heavy and still stands easily.

    I know that having them on the legs does resemble the universe seeker look, and adds a bit of bulk to the legs, however I prefer the slimmer look, plus with this addition theres a bit more transformation going on.

    The rotation on the body was done using a screw, while the mid-point rotation was done by using the ball joint and socket that goes to the thrusters of rotf soundwave
