    What, in your opinion, is the most popular (as in most people do it) single mod that gets done to a particular toy, old or new?

    Some I can think of that I've seen a few people do:

    Alt Sideswipe chest mod
    Hasbro MP Starscream cleanup
    Movie Longarm gun removal
    My very own movie Swindle neck mod :D 

    Please list others!

    Well, the only one of those I personally have done is the MP Starscream. SO I guess I vote for that?

    Not technically a mod, but classics Thundercracker seems to be by far the most often seen custom lately!

    I don't think those are exactly widespread. I'm talking about simple things that most people can do/have done, not repainting entire figures or scratchbuilding parts.

    There's those Legends BB ones... (anyone remember what they were? I'd like to do them if I get the chance)

    Separating movie Frenzy's legs was pretty common there for a while, too.

    I removed the screw that held movie Longarm's gun on the day I got it. Never looked back. :)

    I'll opt for two:

    Longarm's gun (screw removal)
    Correcting Classic tank Megs' feet (back-to-front)

    I second Longarm's gun.

    Dry brushing is also a simple, yet effective mode to improve Movie figures look. (If done properly)

    hmm, you guys beat me to all the big ones.

    how about:

    1. bta alert into prowl

    2. nemesis prime into trailbreaker

    I think as far as this goes, it would have to be things that almost BEG to be done to a figure, so the starscream clean up, barricade light mod, and alt. prowl leg swap should be tops.

    My vote is for the Alt/BT Prowl/Acura Leg swap cuz I've done it to all of mine, It's quick easy and adds to articulation. I've done a few of the others but this one can be done by anyone in a few seconds. I do like the Swindle neck mod, I've done it myself, but I think a lot of people just skipped this guy anyway

    I know the Cleanscream paint removal is really popular right now so that's what hot. I know I'm gonna do it today or tomorrow for sure. It takes a bit of time and effort though

    I was never a fan of the Sideswipe chest mod

    Hmmm....

    I'd say removing the wings from classics Megs and adding long smoke stacks to Anniversary Prime are some what common.
