    Ouch, the problem with customizing figures like this is that one has to go out and buy another figure and using it for scraps. Like your Megatron's arm for example, as you've mentioned in your video, needs Bumblebee's arm. Can't bring myself to buy an expensive figure just to get its arm or whatever. But thanks for the video tutorial. Reminds me not to customize my figures unless I'm willing to sacrifice some other figures.

    Very clean modding on this one. :) 

    I know what you mean, I had to cannibalize a TFTM 1 LC Prime for parts on my ROTF Prime. It kinda feels impractical just scrapping toys like that but it's okay if you can find broken/unwanted ones at cheap prices. I got a spare LC Prime for just a little over $12 local equivalent, had a broken smokestack and was used for practice painting.

    What's nice is that I was able to get more parts of it than I originally intended. I might also be able to use one of the balljoints for my brother's ROTF Megs arm mods. If you are going into customizing TFs you will eventually find uses for your scrap bots. :)

    ^ that's so true mampy, so true. Hmm... The ball joints you mentioned, would they be from the ankles of tftm1 prime? Now on topic, this mod looks awesome!I think I've got a spare BB laying around to use like this. Thanks much forthe idea!
