    Ok, probably a stupid question, but where can I go to order those?

    Does anybody have a link to the actual MPM-03 thread?

    I have a couple questions, but I just noticed my MPM-03 chest actually flips upward, not just inward. Has anybody else found this?

    How'd you find exactly the right screws to use?

    I dunno how possible this would be, but maybe you could install some sort of swinging arm to bring the wheels down and in closer to the center?

    I'd much rather have the wheels fold outward and beside the fender, closer to the door joint.

    It's most likely involve CAD work to create a double folding hinge, replacing the current part the wheel is attached to. Plus, with how much space is needed for the alt mode (between the wheel and shoulder) it'd be a real tight fit!

    Maybe I'll get one for Valentine's Day... The Chosen Prime is about a 15 min drive from my place!

    I hope you get him soon!
    I ordered Barricade off of ActionRobo on Friday and according to USPS the expected delivery is this Friday. My Firage came within a week after ordering from them too. So if The Chosen Prime falls short on stock, I recommend ActionRobo.

    My idea was a bit simpler I think, but complexity hasn't ever really been a problem for your modding it seems. I'm sure you can figure out how to make your idea fit better than mine. :D 


    And I mean no offence to HA Barry (who is a decent figure) but he kinda looks like trash after perusing the mpm Barry thread so much. :lol

    Oh, sorry. I've just been spray painting sets on a "per order" basis. Typically black or metallic.
