    So this guy, basically I couldn't do much to him except make the chest a little better, but it's still no where close to the proportins in the movie.. blasted mech alive gimmicks

    anyways, I unscrewed the rear of the car off his back, and set that aside, and pulled off the two grey peices holding the front bumper pieces, then just kidna jammed them up in where you see them now lol not much thought went into it. it still doesn't look like the movie really, because its molded so wrong, and the paint scheme is horrible, but ah well. Maybe they'll make a premium version, and I can mod that one :p 

    even that promo shot pisses me off too, they photoshopped it to hell, just to try and make it look decent.

    Oh, well that makes sense :) 

    I just removed the hatchback part with the taillights and plate, it looks better. No need to remove the roof section.
