    Pop the fins off stick it on his arm as a shield[ shield mod]. and dont fold the wings up[Butterfly mod]. It looks better i think.

    Nice. Now give it some Maroon paint, and we have ourselves a Thrust. good work man, this is simple, yet effective. I like.
    Edit: Not really a "custom" though.

    Popping the tail piece off and pegging it onto the arm isn’t a mod either. Nothing here is modified

    First person did do some cutting actually, but this could KINDA count as a mod. I remember there was a mod where you knocked a pin out and then you could have the upward facing back guns on TR Brainstorm

    Knocking a pin is a lot different than relocating a removable piece. It's like putting a gun in the left hand instead of the right hand.

    It is. You modified the toy's functionality by removing a piece and attaching it somewhere else. (MMM actually glued his) Ergo, it is functionally different than how it was before. UInfolding the wings isn't a mod, though.

    Also, while I dig the tailfin sheild, leaving the wings unfolded to me takes away a big part of what makes Nitro unique and appealing. I like how it isn't super obvious he's a jet in robot mode due to the lack of wings and the cockpit being behind the arm and the nosecone completely split apart into the crossbow/pickaxe thing. He bucks the typical jetformer trends.

    Actually, it makes it look like Shockwave, Soundwave, and Thrust had a baby. Nice mods.

    That's called the ambidextrous mod.:) 


    Either way, regardless of this is a mod or not, it is crafty and I like it. Well done!

    Mistransformations aren't modifications.

    Removing a piece to place it elsewhere is a modification. Typically though, here in Customs, we look for modifications that aren't directly able to go back to an unaltered state.
