    Could someone please direct me to the link on the mod for MP Grimlock where TF collectors are putting scotch tape on the leg so the tail doesn't get scratched?

    My wife bought me MP Grimlock for father's day and I want to make sure I don't scratch the chrome on the tail when I get it.

    I'd search it but I don't remember the name of the thread THANKS!!

    You don't have a need for the link. There's one screw that touches Grim's tail piece in robot mode. Cover it and you're golden.

    If you want a permanent solution, do this:

    Take out the screws. Use a file, and sand each screw head down, but not so far that you won't be able to screw them back into the legs. Then, once they're screwed back in, paint over them with clear nail polish, or something else that will dry smooth and not be abrasive.

    Whatever you do, you need to remove/cover up the sharp edges and corners on the Phillips head slot.

    What have most of you done with your MP Grimlock? Did you put scotch tape on the leg screw or did you do something else? THANKS!!
