    Okay, it has probably been done before, but just in case... In combined form, if you use both tanks as legs, you'll notice the lack of clearance between the two, forcing Bruticus to do the split. You can gain clearance and get leaner legs by just flipping the inner tank threads to the rear. Or both the inner and outer tank thread if you prefer them to be even slimmer and more symmetrical. It looks way better and improves poseability.

    Pic is useless, it's easy enough to do with visual instructions.

    The down side to this mod is that means you have to use the helicopters as arms... and they're even worse arms than legs. :)

    No way, the choppers are perfect as arms and the hands actually look like real hands.

    I put mine away for the time being, but I usually use the tank for the arms. Because elbows are kinda nice, ya know.

    I'm sorry... are we talking about the same toy? It's been a while since I swapped around my Energon Bruticus... but I recall that those helicopters (while still being cool transformers) are second only to the triangular Energon Aerialbots for being absolutely useless as limbs.

    I guess the energon junk does sort of have a thumb, though they still look pretty oversized and awkward to me.

    Personally I'm all for fan-moding those energon combiners... the official transformations look like crap IMHO, and I don't like the dependence on those energon weapons to form hands and feet.
