    Hi all
    Here is my first custom.
    I had orginal G2 slag when I was a kid and I loved it. Now with POTP line, we received the update, but I just could not stand the lack of wings on this figure. Slag with torso looking like a giant turtle is terrible.
    Also in my opinion Dinobot without wings is no Dinobot.

    So I took a candle, needle and started reworking the backplate bit by bit to divide it into 4 sections.

    Used sandpaper on the parts, added a bit of epoxy in the place of the hole for POTP armor, used a nail and voila, slug now has wings.
    Also needed to shorten a bit the metal rod for the dino neck section. All transformations work fine, wings do not flap loose while in dino mode (legs hold them in place) nor in arm/ leg mode (arms hold them in place).
    The tightness in robot mode is ok, but might have been better.

    I'm just wondering whether fill up the gap between the red torso and the wings that is now visible or not, but I think I'll just leave it. It does not look that bad in hand.
    If anyone has questions how to do it I'll be glad to answer.
