    After seeing Jin Saotome and Wheeljaxx's beautiful work, I was tempted to do some modification myself...

    Unfortunately, it can not fully transform with the extra pieces on the arm, but it'd still transformable with them off. But I guess I will keep it as is, and just find another one to keep in car mode.

    Yup, I cut up RR BB's arm panels, I want to paint the finger tips, but I don't have any yellow paint on hand :( 

    ZecksKitty is right, that panel is supposed to swing up, it is shown that way in the character sheets

    i forsee the BB heels as the next "upside down vs. rightside up" from starscream debate haha

    yeah that looks really sweet with the robot replica arm panels! almost perfectly movie accurate! (well closer anyway)
    do they just pop right off the RR? or did you cut/glue?
    very neat trick. i think you are the first to do it, no?
    it would break my heart to rip up a cool RR, but thats almost worth it! no, it is!
    oh and i agree, paint the fingers yellow.

    man i cant wait to get my concept BB!!!

    and for the record, consider me "heels down!" :lolol

    I don't think it's quite the same. The instructions show them at an angle, neither up or down. It looks better with them up, but some people say they give him more stability, which I have found is a lie, since they make his feet uneven.

    Say Matrix Soul, why don't you give him RR's head and make him more accurate!

    If you really wanted to go extreme, you could buy 2 Unleashed BB's and give him their arm panels. (since they're more in scale)

    I tried the head, but I didn't think it was more accurate, I like what Wheeljaxx did with it, the eyes especially, I feel RR BB's head is too wide for some reason, something just looks off. When I finish my deadline I will take better pictures to show you guys.

    Oh, Driftbot, I cut up RR BB's arm panels, just didn't feel as attached to that figure...

    OT question, what do the arm pads form on BB's car mode in the movie? I don't see them being a real part of the car
